Well I bought both Fallout 1 and 2 on their release days.....they go down as two of my all time favpurite games and I've been playing games on a computer since '83 (good old ELite on the BBC B 32k). Anyway though it's old news to all of you I have only just discovere that Fallout 3 was going to be similar and not the Action\RPG\FPS it became...I donwloaded the tech demo and had a little blast on that solitary map...afterwards I felt huge disapointment....if only...if only. From what I've read sitting somehwere is pretty much a near finished game....why of why Bethedsa can't get the original developers to finish it and release it on Steam at an indy to mid range price range. Surely it can't damage the modern Fallout image....infact all the old school would love it and the newer players would also enjoy it and I'm sure take it as a different style of Fallout game rather than compitition. I honestly feel that with the current buzz for retro style games (ie Terreria) there is money to be made if Van Buren is completed. Anyway as I said it's old news to al of you..but to me it's a fresh wound. Maybe a petition and getting hold of the old Black Isle developers aswell as the main folks behind the original game would help.
