From a Oblivion interview:

Quote

And finally - how's Fallout 3 coming along?

Pete Hines: We've got a lot of folks working on that game now, and what I've seen of it so far is looking really good and has me very excited - I'm a big fan. We're approaching Fallout 3 as if we developed the first and second games - we're developing it just like we developed Oblivion. Fallout 3 is our baby, we want to stay true to what it is and we want to deliver something that all the fans think is worthwhile. We're trying to move the series forward, keeping it fresh and cool while staying true to its roots. When we're ready we'll let people know, and hopefully people will be excited about some of the ideas we have and some of the stuff we're up to.

God I hope it's coming to Mac.

There is no way Bethesda is going to be able to pull this one off. I have nothing against the Elder Scrolls games, but nothing Bethesda has ever made comes anywhere close to being comparable to Fallout. The only way this will work is if they hire the old Interplay team that worked on the original, and focus more on gameplay and story and less on graphics.

From what I've heard, the old Interplay team was going to develop it before Bethesdasoft outbid them for the rights.

When their latest game is released (ES: Oblivion?), I think it will tell us a lot about what we'll see in Fallout 3. I hope that they have the sense to clearly differentiate the two worlds.

I wouldn't be so sure.  Bethesda hasn't proven they can pull it off, but they haven't proven they can't either.  It'll certainly be different from the old Fall Outs (first person, real time is a given I think), but I'm still expecting a darn good game.

And what do you mean focus on gameplay more and less on graphics?  Morrowind's graphics were great, but to me the gameplay was even better.  So much to explore, so much to do, and so many different skills/spells to learn.

The story did kinda stink, though.

They missed a lot of the attention to detail. From the character trait icons to the shantitowns, Fallout had both style and substance packed in like sand under glowing green glass.

Most times, I'd be all about nice looking graphics, but for me Fallout will always be 2D top down time-based combat. If the story and atmosphere is in place then I'm willing to put up with classic Fallout graphics.

I list Fallout as one of the certifiable masterpieces of computer gaming. Nothing quite so cool as playing through that game the first time, except maybe playing through the second time.
Work: MacBook - 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo - 4GB RAM - X3100 graphics.

Has anybody ever seen the cast of this game? A lot of minor stars did voice acting on it, I'm pretty impressed. Check it out: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134648/

What's sadder that statement or the fact that I have fallout 1 and 2 on my hard drive and have never played either of them.   :mellow:

Pretty much a given that this will make it to the Mac, just like ES: Morrowind and ES: Oblivion made it to the Mac... oh wait... nevermind.

No.  We are here to crush your dreams and grind them under the boot heels of despair.

I suppose I should play Fallout 2 one of these days, eh?

I assume Aspyr and other Mac game companies actively seek out new titles to port. It would be interesting to know what stops titles like Elder Scrolls 4 from appearing on the Mac. I'd like to confirm it is the Havok license fee or know what other issues normally stand in the way of a port?

I suspect it is some combination of Bethesda having zero interest in Mac support, wanting a huge lisencing fee for ES games, and the huge task porting an ES game would be for a Mac game porter. ES: Morrowind did not use Havok and something kept it off the Mac, even though it would have been fairly popular I'd imagine. Heck, I'd pick up a Mac version of ES3 today if someone released it.
Fallout 3 is supposedly using much the same engine as Oblivion from what vague statements have been made by Bethesda.
