    whoa, that fallout 3 link is an incredible compendium of blogs and opinions (Mr Wildgoose too!) - it's things like this that extend the depth of the game beyond what you see on the screen, whether writing about the fictional side or development side (which can strip away the immersion yet still peak my interest in the game). I'd like to think that Bethesda is beside themselves with how much has been written about the game, sales do equal profit but critique like this solidifies brilliance.
    I really need to get back into the game, but sometimes when desperately seeking a quick jolt of gaming, fallout 3 with its slow pace and the cerebral attention it demands, it doesn't get a play..

    That Offworld link...
    "...once in Japanese and once in American"

    I truly hope she is joking.

      I think Margaret (being English herself) is poking fun at the American voice actors.
