Remember that awesome-sounding Aliens RPG that got cancelled? It looks like Obsidian is working on this instead:http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/new...hp?story=23276Bethesda Softworks announced that Obsidian Entertainment is developing a brand-new Fallout game titled Fallout: New Vegas, to release next year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Gamasutra was at Bethesda's event in London to hear the game announced by marketing and PR VP Pete Hines, who provided few specifics on the game's engine, gameplay or perspective -- but did note the game's neither a Fallout sequel nor a spin-off.
"It's not Fallout Tactics -- it's not Brotherhood Of Steel," said Hines. "It has no impact on what [Fallout EP] Todd Howard and his guys are planning."
A number of Obsidian staff are veterans of Black Isle's original Fallout games. "We've really been enjoying working with [Obsidian] on it," Hines said.
"That is all we're going to say about it right now," he added.
I know, not much information. The big thing here is that Obsidian has a bunch of the old Black Isle team, including Chris Avellone. Chris Motherfucking Avellone, the dude who helped write Fallout 1 + 2 and Planescape: Torment. OMG.

Obsidian making a new Fallout has me fucking hyped like no other.
This is really really awesome news.
You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.
I would've preferred Aliens, but I'll this beats the hell out of nothing.
I am of the opinion that an Aliens RPG would have in fact not ruled.
But an Obsidian-developed-Fallout title ought to be pretty damn good. The style will apparently mimic that of Fallout 3, but even so, it ought to please the die-hard-fans with Obsidian on board.
Am I the only one who thought Fallout 3 was kind of awful?

The story was terrible.
There's no variety in the environments.
As an fps the aiming and use of guns was bad.
No npcs worth caring about at all.
Uninspired enemy design.
...so what was great about Fallout 3?
YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT!
If everything you can do isn't all that interesting then it doesn't really matter.
