Fallout 3 is fun at Games Are Fun!

A site called Games Are Fun (don't confuse with other popular sites like I Like Games and <a href=http://www.aacap.org/page.ww?name=Children+Who+Are+Mentally+Retarded&section=Facts+for+Families>I Play Game![/url]) has posted this Fallout 3 preview:

Fallout 3 is running on the Oblivion engine, but don't think for a minute that means you'll be getting The Elder Scrolls V: Fallout. For one thing, character faces now resemble attractive humans! That's a good start, but Bethesda didn't stop there.​
Judging by the previews, Bethesda could have easily stopped there.

Voiced by actor Liam Neeson, the model of Father will actually change depending on what you design your own character to look like. So it's conceivable that Father will look slightly different in each particular player's game of Fallout 3.​

Guns will be one of the major weapons in Fallout 3, and for the most part, the game will play much like a first-person shooter. There will also be laser rifles, melee weapons, and my favorite, a portable nuclear bomb launcher.​
Hey, it's my favorite weapon too!

In battle, the game will play like an FPS, as I mentioned, but it can also play like a semi-turn-based shooter...​
Semi turn-based? So it's a semi-Fallout shooter with a semi-isometric mode and semi-turn-based combat for semi-hardcore Fallout fans.

Another element in battle is radiation. By blowing up objects in the environment (resulting in some really awesome-looking mushroom clouds), you'll release radiation into the surrounding area and damage all living things, enemies and friends alike.​
Ah, so that's how it works. The nuclear EXPLOSION is actually harmless, but it's a good source of radiation. Even blowing up an old chair will result in some really awesome-looking mushroom cloud and some chair radiation (there are different types, in case you don't really know your physics).
