Fallout 3: Graphic tweaking, Japs can't handle nukes

Apparently the Japanese are still sensitive over that whole "We nuked their ass in World War 2 after trying to take over the world" thing, so Fallout 3 has had to have some major changes to accomodate them, according to wired:

Fallout 3 is coming to Japan on December 4, but with a few changes that aren't so surprising.

The biggest change involves the elimination of the "Power of the Atom" side-quest, about a nuclear bomb in the middle of a town, with players having the option to detonate the device or not. Also removed is Mr. Burke, an NPC who invites the player to detonate the town.

Another change relates to the name of a weapon. Although not mentioned in the announcement, I'm guessing it refers to the "Fat Man" mini-nuke launcher.

Lesser changes involve the renaming of creatures, as well as a reduction in the amount of blood and corpses found in the game.​
In other news, PC Games hardware tell you how to tweak the ini file to make the graphics look better. They even have a few comparison shots in their gallery. As usual, the tweaked game has longer viewing distance and higher detail.

Also, the 7 foot, 11 inch Fallout 3 statue up for sale on Sam's Club has sold for $2,500 (I'm guessing that's USD).
