any of you with PS3s, please check out Valkyria Chronicles. Wow. Imagine well done first person turn based action. It's fantastic. To oversimplify: In combat, you get a certain number of 'action points' for movement. In gameplay videos this will look like a timer, but in actuality it's usually a step counter, unless you're under enemy fire. You can fire once per turn, at any point. (Note, for FO3, they could roll up movement and fire points to get the 'classic' fallout effect. This would allow you to fire multiple times, etc. Targeting is (relatively) stat based - you see a targeting circle that gives the range of your bullet spread, so you can estimate what your odds are of hitting (if the circle covers the torse, you know you'll hit, but only half covers the head, you know you might miss). Reaction fire! If you're out in the open, enemies will fire at you during your turn. Likewise, you, them. The game is squad based, and for FO they would have needed to make a few changes... but... wow. What MIGHT have been. Check it out if you can, it's well worth it. Modders - here's something to try out when designing a new FO3 modded system.
