Fallout 3: In-Game Footage At Last

Words later. E3 Video now:

Immediate thought: Oh. Is that... it? But before we dismiss it as -nnng- 'Oblivion with guns' (I'm strongly tempted to ironic-o-edit any comment that includes that 'orrible phrase from now on), let's keep in mind that this is a 100 hour, open-world RPG brutally compressed into a 3-minute combat demo for an audience of gun-hungry 360 journos, eh? I presume - based on how the game's been described previously - there's an awful lot more to see. And the palette aside - always a problem with post-apocalyptic landscapes - some of those dystopia-vistas really do look impressive.

Extra! Beneath the cut, a full-length trailer, showing more baddies, Dogmeat, some in-Vault stuff and more 50s ad-spoofery. And an excellent into-the-sunset closing shot.

Looks a lot sparkier than the demo walkthrough, though some of that's down to the splendid music. Still, we desperately need to see some of the questing, dialogue and non-monster towns to get a real sense of the game, I think.
