Fallout 3!

I hadn't heard about it yet, but Bethseda Softworks (makers of famous Elder Scrolls RPGs) is working up a third Fallout game, creatively entitled Fallout 3.

Fallout and Fallout 2 are both incredible post-apocalypse RPGs, made by Black Isle studios, one of the best computer RPG studios of all time. They were hailed by critics and fans alike; I played through both--great games. All kinds of variation with your character--different skills to specialize in, attributes, and special abilities. Fun artwork/style, and a classic post-nuclear war environment, battling everything from giant scorpions to killer robots. Black Isle did a great job, as they did with most of their games; unfortunately, Black Isle closed their doors a few years back. Bethsada is new at the game, but they have an established track record for successful RPGs.

Unfortunately, we have to wait until fall of 2008 to see the game. I'll be following its development and posting news as I come across it!
