This might just be GOTY. I can't wait to pick up my lunchbox and bobblehead from the pre-order collectors edition at BB. I see several playthroughs as well and thats always a good thing.

I'm thinking Game of the Year as well. It looks so gritty. But now I'm thinking cod 5 may be the sleeper (seriously) hit of the year after the preview I just read.
post #34 of 1710
COD 5 is just going to be rehashed COD 4 in World War II where if you have connection problems the developer is going to say "you must reconfigure your modem".

Fallout 3 looks good but I still think it would have been better if it was setup more like Fallout Tactics instead of a FPS.

Look for GOW 2 and Fallout 3 to be the top contenders for GOTY

With a release date of the 28th, will it be in stores then or is the actual "street date" the 29th?
post #36 of 1710
You guys need to stop with the GOTY hype....

GTA4 pretty much has that locked up...or Fallout 3...
post #37 of 1710
I just want my lunchbox too.

Oh and GOTY

I'll let you know on the 28th on Ars Technica (they invited me to come back from my Spore review), that's when the embargo is up and the review goes live.

For now, I'm just playing and playing and playing.

Some people must have this by today, first impressions?

Can't wait picking it up tomorrow morning. gah there's too much coming out to get it all this holiday season

BTW,
I think that Turning Point Fall of Liberty will be the GOTY what an awesome demo that was

Very psyched for tomorrow as well! I never played any of the previous Fallout games, so I've been reading up online to get the backstory and I already feel pretty immersed. I've also starting reading "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy to get in the post-apocalyptic mood

This is definitely the most-anticipated game for me since Bioshock!

I'm in pretty much the same boat on the backstory vpn, I missed out on the other two and am just getting into it now as well. maybe they'll release the other two at a later date similar to what they did with Marathon, if this turns out like I suspect it will I'd definitely be interested in that.

Amazon says I should have it tomorrow, but they haven't sent a shipping notice.
post #47 of 1710
I haven't played any of the previous Fallouts... I was under the impression this played as a FPS. Is that not the case? Does it play more as a rpg? sorry if it's been asked before.

It is a hybrid I'd say, like Oblivion.

I really need to find a copy of this game tomorrow and then get a week long illness to go with it

So many excellent games this year....and so much damn work making it impossible to spend any time with them. I'm really looking forward to getting some time with Fallout III soon.

There's a nicely done retrospective on the previous Fallouts on gametrailers site http://www.gametrailers.com/game/10471.html

I ordered through Amazon too and they said release-day delivery is guaranteed, so I'll be pretty upset if I don't get the game tomorrow.

I have Prime so I'm not too worried though.

yea, I did the release-day thing too. Amazon usually surprises me with how quick things get here. I think it has to do with the fact the ebgames/gamespot warehouse is 20 min away.

I preordered it through Game Crazy, and am amped to get it in my hands! I think my local GC is doing a midnight release, so I may take a long nap today, and snag it tonight for fun. Still gotta work tommorrow though...
post #54 of 1710
I'm just wondering why there aren't any reviews yet...

OXM gave it 100/100, but i'd take that with a grain of salt.

According to warcrow above, the review embargo does not end until tomorrow (or midnight tonight?). I find that kind of odd. I was expecting reviews yesterday.

Those are my thoughts exactly...I get worried when there aren't any reviews at least a day or two before release. I'm crossing my fingers on this one.
