You love it or you hate it, but you damn well better play it. Bethesda received a lot of criticism for their work on Fallout 3, particularly on how it compared with the previous games. Now it’s Bethesda’s turn to respond to those critics.
You love it or you hate it, but you damn well better play it. Bethesda received a lot of criticism for their work on Fallout 3 (PS3, Xbox 360), particularly on how it compared with the previous games. Now it’s Bethesda’s turn to respond to those critics.
MTV listed down three criticisms we usually hear from gamers, and gave executive producer Todd Howard a shot at answering them, and here’s what he said:
Criticism: #1: Â“Fallout 3″ is just mediocre when judged as a first person shooter
Criticism #2: The ending isnÂ’t very satisfying and much shorter than other Â“FalloutÂ” endings
Howard: Based on the feedback IÂ’ve seen, most people are pissed off that it ends, not the Â‘endingÂ’ itself. Maybe thatÂ’s one and the same, I donÂ’t know. ThatÂ’s another thing weÂ’re changing in DLC3 [downloadable content #3, “Broken Steel”]. We really underestimated how many people would want to keep playing, so thatÂ’s probably the last time weÂ’ll do something like that.
Criticism #3: V.A.T.S. is boring once youÂ’re accurate enough to head shot everyone
Howard: Depends on what you find entertaining. I like to blow peopleÂ’s heads off, so, well, it never got old for me. I agree that the Â‘to hit chanceÂ’ for head shots is probably too high.
Unfortunately for PS3 gamers, Bethesda won’t be distributing the DLC that allows post-ending play to the Sony console. For now, at least. Who knows, perhaps the DLC deal with Microsoft was only for a timed exclusive, like BioShock.
