Good luck to completists out there who'll want to watch each one. Here are the rest of the info for Fallout 3 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) as revealed on Game Informer:

- They'll handle the ending as a dynamic cutscene that changes depending on specific decisions you make. Right now there are over 500 variations of the cutscene.

- You can talk to Dogmeat although he only barks and wags his tail. But they say you always tell if he agrees or disagrees with you.

- There are no guilds like in Oblivion. You just go around doing different quests for various groups.

- The world is entirely open from the start although certain areas can be difficult at the start.

- There will be licensed music from the 40's and 50's. Songs and artists include Ink Spots"I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire", Bob Crosby's "Way Back Home", and Roy Brown's "Butcher Pete".

Kojima: MGS4 is the Conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga

100°
328w ago - At a press event held in Tokyo yesterday, producer Hideo Kojima announced that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patroits has gone gold.

Meaning, the game is now finished development-wise and is currently in the process of being sent to manufacturing in preparation for its June 12 worldwide release date.

While on the stand, Kojima noted that Metal Gear Solid 4 is "the conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga."

However, Konami president Fumiaki Tanaka accentuated the fact that MGS 4 won't be Kojima's last PlayStation 3 title, as he has mentioned in previous interviews before.

To quote: "We took on all sorts of challenges in the making of MGS4," reminisced Kojima.

"We were challenged to make MGS4 on the Cell-processor-operated, unknown monster of a hardware called the PlayStation 3. We were challenged to make MGS4 in high definition graphics and 5.1ch surround sound so that it'd play in the leagues of movies.

We were challenged to give MGS4 the most [content] in the series, and so we had the largest number of developers working [on the franchise] ever.

328w ago - Konami have revealed that you will be able to unlock an Altair Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake in MGS4. It was seen in a video earlier this year, but was presumed to be an April Fool's joke.

To quote: Snake running around MGS4 dressed as Altair, looking for all the world like it was actually in the game... so would it surprise you to hear that it wasn't really a gag? Yeah, that's right.

It was announced at the MGS4 wrap party today that MGS4 players will indeed be able to unlock an Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake (we won't tell you how), which were it not for the silver moustache and trademark cigarette would have you thinking Altair himself had time-travelled his way into the final Metal Gear title.
