Russian magazine Игромания (Game mania) has a preview of Fallout 3 up. It's worth it for this paragraph alone:<blockquote>There is even the opinion that Fallout is a cult - this is especially a Russian phenomenon, the game allegedly passed fairly weakly in the West and not as if it were for anyone a revelation.</blockquote>I bow to Russia's power. Moving forwards, it notes Fallout 3 seems to be different than the previous games in topical quests and emphasis on mainquest, and the author notes he feels Bethesda is making a mistake trying to please everyone, with both 1st person and 3rd person. He notes such topics as supermutants and the BoS on the east coast are being discussed actively, ending with:<blockquote>Bethesda, credit where credit's due, takes its responsibilities. Every developer on the planet would like to make Fallout 3, but the brand is, perhaps, in good and caring hands. It seems, it will be possible to sleep well at night.</blockquote>Our Russian newsie liberty rogue notes the article is well-written, and that it refers to NMA, DaC and the Vault (but not the official sites).
