Evening Q&As

  • Fallout 3
    The Fallout 3 Q&A talks with Emil Pagliarulo, lead designer on Bethesda's upcoming Fallout game: "You could. If you were to do that I would compare it to Deus Ex 1, which would have a similar feel. You certainly could. It would be harder. Itís harder to play the game that way tactically. In VATS, we are sort of still playing with that. For example, if you are trying to shoot the antennae off a giant ant, itís really hard to target that in real time. So we might jack the percentage up a little bit to make it a viable option. But you could certainly play the entire game without using VATS. But we've found in the office playing the game that the third person playback (which only happens in VATS) is a lot of fun to watch. When Todd and I first started prototyping VATS, we played other real time games like Call of Duty and Halo. We'd sit there and say 'if I were playing this game and could freeze this moment and go into some kind of targeting system, how would that feel?' Sometimes you want to take a breath and think tactically and not feel rushed. We struggled a long time with the first versions of VATS whether the game should be paused or should we do some slo mo thing. We decided to pause the game and let the player think, be more tactical and not pressure them."
  • Overlord
    RPG Vault's Overlord Q&A talks with Lennart Sas about Triumph Studios' action/RPG: "Overlord should be very interesting to RPG fans because you step into the metal boots the Dark Lord and guide that character to world domination. You actually get to role-play this character, and determine how evil you become. Your choices are tracked using a corruption rating, ranging form 0% to 100% corrupt. Save a village from starvation or keep the food for yourself. Gather a harem of servant girls or let them be. Decide if you steal the souls of peasants so you can spawn more minions. Overlord offers a role-playing experience not seen before in the genre."

That is obvious, Bethesda. But do you realize that we don't want that kind of gameplay?
You'll want to read the actual article to understand the context of the comment; he wasn't saying that Fallout 3 will be comparable to Deus Ex.
