Original Fallout Developers Talk Fallout 3

A few comments have been made on Bethesda’s Fallout 3 by original Fallout lead programmer/producer Tim Cain and lead developer Chris Taylor, both of whom have apparently pre-ordered the sequel. Tim Cain comments to Edge:

“I’ve hardly thought about [what I’d do different] with Fallout 3,” said Cain, “but I have thought about the online version. I’ve also talked to the guys at Interplay about Fallout Online.

“The biggest problem I have with expanding the game is that the original games were designed to make you feel like you were one of the last people left on Earth. And with Fallout 3 and the online version, I’m curious about how they’ll handle making the game not feel too crowded–making it feel like there’s not much life left out there after the war.”

While Chris Taylor is even more reluctant to comment on the official Interplay forums:

Personally, I have the deluxe edition of FO3 on order from Amazon. I can’t wait for my PIPBoy clock… ^_^ I think Bethesda has done a tremendous job with the marketing, and, frankly, I’m jealous of what resources they have put into FO3.

As for the game itself, I’m reserving judgment until I get a chance to play it. Videos and images aren’t enough for me to make a decision about gameplay… I need a hands-on experience. I am looking forward to playing FO3 as soon as it comes out.
