    "War never changes."
    "Life in the <insert place here> is about to change."

    Deep, bassy, serious. Perfect.

    "War, war never changes" is a great, classic line. I can never forget that line, ever.

    Leave it to retail chains to jump the gun. According to the site here
    Fallout 3 is due out for the computer 30 Nov /07.

    Best part of the description:
    More Information
    *Fallout 3 may not please you if you are one of eleven angry guys who may or may not frequent No Mutants Allowed.

    This from the same people who posted Hellgate: London as being out Oct 31 /06...

    EDIT:
    To make things better, it already has user reviews :rolleyes:

    To make matters worse they actually use the cancelled 'Van Buren' intro screen as box art. What's the point of this travesty?

    While waiting for Bethesda to release some information on their abomination, we can take a look at this Van Buren video which was released by NMA a while ago. It looks great... damn damn damn damn Interplay, damn it!

    To be honest that video looks pretty terrible, Van Buren has been hyped beyond believe since it's non-release. No one can say van Buren would have been the best fallout yet everyone does.

    On a more dark note, I really don't like the 3d graphics, this does not bode well for Beth's game.

    Well, it is a pre-alpha tech demo after all...

    They released the full demo now as well, which is available here.

    I don't think that Van Buren has ever been hyped as the best Fallout ever. However, since it was being developed by Black Isle, the developers did at least interact with the fans, and while the game wasn't what everyone wanted, it still appeared like it was going to be at least decent. I'm not sure there's ever been much hope for Bethesda's since Oblivion was released, a terribly disappointing game, or possibly before, when the hype juggernaut rolled over most of the internet and gaming press. While Bethesda keeps fan interactions to a minimum, though, it's a matter of waiting and seeing just how much damage they do to our beloved game.

    Well, we will see that in 31 days when the teaser trailer hits the official site. Currently there is some artwork and music to be seen/heard.

    Yea, the artwork is decent, but the music is simply horrible... "epic post apocalyptic wannabe symphony orchestra with fairy elves playing violin"

    Aye. The music is pretty much entirely wrong, it's too pompous and bombastic, rather than the music of Fallout, which is entirely ambient.

    The beginning is not that bad really, it reminded me of the menu screen of Torment. Later on though I agree it's more fantasy based.

    Something interesting is happening over at the Fallout 3 site... Apparently there's been some countdown or something recently, and now the original frontpage has been replaced with the classic "PLEASE STAND BY" image. Probably a teaser video coming up or something.

    The teaser is out ladies and gentleman.

    Now it's just a teaser so no gameplay footage, or any hint to the system whatsoever.

    Having said that it's friggin' awesome, even without the game this trailer captures the mood of Fallout almost perfectly. The music, the actual music that should have been in fallout 1 if they could have gotten the rights is in this trailer. Plus as a very huge bonus, someone familiar is back......goosebumps.

    Yeah, I thought the teaser trailer was pretty good too, the only bad thing was the news that the game will be released over a year from now, in the fall 2008. Still, the questions about wheter the game will be in first or third person view or not, and if it will be turn based or real time, is something I'd like to have answered by Bethesda... soon.

    Apparently the teaser was made using the actual game engine, so it's likely that what you see here is what you'll get. Also, it's been speculated that the engine may not be designed for first-person, considering the relatively low polycount and detail in the environment.

    Yes, it is done with the rendering engine, just not real-time. Anyway, the trailer was nice and all, but when do we actually see some gameplay footage?

    We should at least hope for a new countdown when the buzz about the teaser trailer has gone down.
