Fallout 3 - Preview @ Gameplayer

Australian site Gameplayer has a preview of Fallout 3, with significant input from Pete Hines.  The article covers the same familiar demo, so don't expect anything new:

So why did Bethesda choose this setting for their next game? “I can’t speak for the original creators,” says Hines, “Tim Cain and those guys, but definitely what makes Fallout memorable is that 1950s sensibility set against this post-nuclear world. It was the Americana future they realised, that tomorrow land with robot maids and rocket cars and that sensibility that they had, that Leave It to Beaver ‘everything’s going to be okay’ outlook. In Fallout 3 people still cling to that idealistic view of how things are going to turn out, but everything’s just blown to hell. A lot of its flavour comes from this juxtaposition.”
