The PS3 Games of Fall 2008

IGN has profiled many of the games hitting the PlayStation 3 this fall, with such notables as BioShock, Fallout 3, and the JRPG Valkyria Chronicles all making the list.

What’s there to write about Fallout 3 that we haven’t already covered extensively? We’ve seen the game, we’ve played it — multiple times now — and every time we come away more geeked out than before. If you thought you could resist the siren’s song of Oblivion in the Wastes, think again; Fallout 3 is absolutely packed with post-apocalyptic insanity, and we couldn’t be happier to be imbibing all that craziness in just a few weeks.

It’s more than just a setting swap, though; Fallout 3 expands on many of the core bits of tech from Oblivion, but blows them out. In particular, the way you can approach things has been heavily influenced by the go-anywhere, do-anything feel of the original Fallout. Make no mistake, this is Bethesda’s labor of love, and it’s resulting in one of the most impressive revivals of a classic PC franchise we’ve seen in ages. Maybe it’s the freedom to tackle an area when you want and how you want. Maybe it’s the great writing. Maybe it’s just that we’ve been too long without a proper post-apocalyptic adventure. Whatever the reason, it’s time to get hyped.
