    The moment she squealed "Sweet!" was when i wanted her to die.

    Interesting to finally hear Matthew Perry's voice in FO3 (4:23). Not sure if he suits the character yet.

    I'll take you up on that offer, but you best not be bullshitting us, mister! If there's anything remotely resembling the Little Lamplight fiasco, I will consider it a massive failure to deliver!

    Also, orbital laser makes me wanna cry. Grenade machine gun makes me wanna cry. Attempt to justify grenade machine gun with "This actually does exist" makes me wanna cry.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of this relatively new notion of chicks doing the game interviews: sometimes you can tell they never even heard of the title and/or couldn't care less. They ask boring questions. Devs get shy, stutter and answer boring answers.

    I guess you were disappointed when she didn't get killed off. It was a pretty short film though, so I think you'll live.

    Seriously though, it is weird that these girls want to get jobs involving video game stuff when they would be better at reporting the weather or news or whatever. It doesn't really bother me though. They do their job and it's not like an uber-geek that knows everything about gaming journalism would make us appreciate the video more.

    Maybe you guys would like it better if Batman did the interview? Or maybe the Stranger from Resident Evil 4. Of course, that's a hit or miss scenario which would result in 100% epic or 100% lame.

    I guess he should have said "every single adult character", then.

    As wonky as the walking animation is, I still find it an improvement over F3. Also, I like what I've seen of the intro so far, looks pretty good.

    I think you might be giving the star wars movies a bit too much credit

    He should have, he should have... Because if there's as much as one un-killable character, kid or adult, he's a dirty lying whore.

    Seriously, it would be a pretty big slip-up to promise that sort of stuff in an interview and then not deliver. Especially in an RPG - the notion of un-killable characters giving compulsory quests pretty much kills the genre, IMO.

    I really don't see what the difference is between killing a child and any other person.

    It won't happen for the first time. 200 endings.

    Actually about a dozen or so endings and they are all shit.

    Anyway, still looking for that opening video.

    Ceasar Legion sounds pretty fun to play with. Anyway, I'm really curious how this game will look in action. It can't be worse than fallout 3 anyway.

    Has it been mentioned if any decent gambling games (poker etc.) will be making it into the game? Slots, blackjack and roulette are just a slow and painful way of giving the casino all of your money.

    I have a PS3, although judging by the video, they seem to be little post cards that maybe open up new loading screens or maybe even hints to a new location.

    I'm pretty sure I heard that all but one of the characters can be killed.

    About the reporter girl, I wouldn't mind it if she didn't have to act like trying to get the nerds horny. For example, the way she said "What can you tell me about the big guns? What are some of the big, BIG, GIANT guns that you can tell us about?" really sounded like a sexual innuendo (check 7:07). Or maybe I just have a dirty mind.

    @4:45 Is that Indiana Jones? :P

    No, there's a video of the intro you get from playing the minigame that came with the video magazine.

    I didn't find the reporter too bad. O.k maybe stereotypically generic but it's a games review program and they stopped being interesting in the 90's.

    Anyway love the clothing, nice to see some variety in outfits.

    Except kids, they're still unkillable.

    1 major character plus kids is what I've read also.

    But yeah, they really shouldn't be bullshitting like that. I mean, I think it's a great step to have only 1 major NPC and kids unkillable, it should do wonders for the freedom of the game.
    But then they should say that as well. Saying that every single character in the game is killable is a lie and creates false expectations.

    I am extremely glad that they stated before that kids are not really important characters or anything though. I don't think I could've handled another Little Lamplight situation.
