Fallout 3 Sells Big

Bethesda Softworks Announces Successful Launch of Fallout 3 is the press release with some very large numbers from the launch of Fallout 3 that make it hard to dispute their use of the word "successful." Bethesda announces having shipped approximately 4.7 million copies of the post-apocalyptic RPG sequel for Windows and consoles, saying this represents $300 million in sales: "Released on October 28 in North America at midnight store openings in over 2,000 retail outlets nationwide jammed with fans eager to get the game, Fallout 3 quickly became one of the industry's top sellers around the world. For example, in the United Kingdom where it was not released until Friday, October 31 the rapid sales of Fallout 3 have led the game to be ranked number one among all video games, as well as being the number one game on each of its three platforms."

So far enjoying it a lot; it's better than I thought it would be. Really kept a lot of the flava from the first 2 games. I've done the main quest to Rivet City, now checking out other areas, level 11. Seems darker with less humour. Not a bad thing. Very good immersion (for me anyway, ymmv). Seems to have tonnes of modding potential.

I'm wondering if I can do things like get married and pimp my wife, or sell my partner to slavers. I kind of doubt it.

I'm a little disappointed the number of skills were pared down. Definitely a lot easier than F1&2; I died a lot in those games. The only time I've died so far is misusing the mininukes. They should have made fast travel like the first 2, with a chance of a random encounter.

A key ring; hey, can I get one for Oblivion?

Inventory/merchant menus should be drop down, or icons across the top, so I don't have to "clickety-click-click-click" through the menus.

I've had only a couple crashes, on exit and fast travelling, none since the patch.....which was itself an interesting experience. Levitating objects, including a priest at a wedding in Rivet City (thought he was hanging at first lol). The physics are interesting...sometimes comical, sometimes disturbingly realistic, although I believe inadvertently in this respect.

We'll see how it plays out
