Release Date: TBA 2011
Live 11 Minute Demo from E3
I originally had this on the Other Shooter page, but as I read more and watched more about the game I realized that it is Fallout 3, yet it surpasses it in a few ways. The world looks better and more detailed than Fallout 3 (the video was from the Xbox 360 version btw). When you talk to NPCs, you and the person you are talking to are not standing completely still. The NPCs will often use lots of body language and gesticulation and you can move your character around instead of being locked down in conversation mode like Fallout 3. Rage will also have multiplayer. Sorry about that short sentence, but that is all Id has told the press so far about the multiplayer. The last major way that this game improves on the Fallout 3 formula is vehicles. The vehicles are fast and they are heavily armed. I love Fallout 3 so very much but I can not deny that Rage is looking like it may steal my heart in 2011.
Fallout: New Vegas
Release Date: October 19, 2010
Live Demo from E3
What you got here is Fallout 3 with better melee attacks, gambling, hookers and brand new totally sweet weapons. One of the new types of weapons is the throwing spear. Fallout 3 didn't have anything like it, a reusable thrown weapon that can decapitate enemies. It is also possible to air juggle enemies using grenades and then decapitate them with your throwing spear as they fall. And last but not least, if you are into really big booms, you'll appreciate the satellite based laser weapon system.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Release Date: TBA 2011
Developers Talk While Teaser Trailer Plays
Human Revolution takes place about 25 years before the first Deus Ex game and as such, nano augmentation has not been developed yet. So instead of nano-bots augmenting the abilities of organic humans, humans are augmented with cybernetic implants that can be upgraded. Some of the abilities that we know about so far are invisibility, enhanced strength and x-ray vision. Once again choice is very important in the world of Deus Ex. There are many different ways to gain access to places and many ways to get what you want from people. I am a fan of stealthy, efficient strikes which is great because this game will reward stealth with many different cinematic lethal and non-lethal takedown animations.
