From The Vault

Brotherhood of Steel Paladin

The Fallout 3 intro starts in a wreck of a bus, with a Radiation King radio playing the song I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire sung by The Ink Spots. Inside the bus, various familiar items from Fallout and Fallout 2 can be seen, including a Rot Gut bottle, a Super Tool Kit and Nuka Cola bottles. Above the bus windows, there are posters encouraging people to enlist with the Armored Infantry and to buy a place in a Vault (featuring the Vault Boy). The camera then moves outside the bus, showing a ruined city, some art deco architecture and a Corvega ad, and finally, a man in T-45d Power Armor with a new model of laser rifle and a Brotherhood of Steel symbol on his breastplate.

As the screen fades to black, the narration by Ron Perlman starts.

Narration

War. War never changes. Since the dawn of human kind, when our ancestors first discovered the killing power of rock and bone, blood has been spilled in the name of everything, from God to justice to simple, psychotic rage.

In the year 2077, after millennia of armed conflict, the destructive nature of man could sustain itself no longer. The world was plunged into an abyss of nuclear fire and radiation. But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the world. Instead, the apocalypse was simply the prologue to another bloody chapter of human history. For man had succeeded in destroying the world - but war, war never changes.

In the early days, thousands were spared the horrors of the holocaust by taking refuge in enormous underground shelters, known as vaults. But when they emerged, they had only the hell of the wastes to greet them - all except those in Vault 101. For on the fateful day, when fire rained from the sky, the giant steel door of Vault 101 slid closed... and never reopened. It was here you were born. It is here you will die. Because, in Vault 101: no one ever enters and no one ever leaves.

Teaser

The cinematic teaser trailer for Fallout 3, consisting of the first part of the intro, was released by Bethesda Softworks on June 5, 2007, after a 30 day countdown on the Fallout 3 website. During the countdown, a new piece of concept art by Craig Mullins was revealed on every Tuesday. The teaser fades to black after the end of the cinematic part, and we hear only the first four words of the narration: "War. War never changes". Then the text "Fallout 3" appears and changes into "Fall 2008". The text of the narration was revealed in July 2007 in Australia's Atomic Magazine.

Notes

  • While it features no gameplay footage, the intro was created in-engine (done with game assets in Bethesda's rendering engine), but isn't done real-time.
  • The song I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire was initially going to be used in the Fallout intro, but Interplay was unable to get the license, so it was scrapped and Maybe, another song by The Ink Spots was used.
  • The location used to record the intro is still present in the game files, accessible via the G.E.C.K..
  • The Brotherhood of Steel soldier you see in the intro is an actual NPC named "Brotherhood of Steel".

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Taser is a weapon featuring in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, used to stun people. The Taser takes up the melee weapon slot, but works just like a gun. The Taser was originally set to feature in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as the primary weapon of the Patrol Invest Group, but was removed.

The Taser launches a small wire which attaches to the target and sends a continuous electric charge into them. It has a power meter, which starts at 100, and is depleted with use; it recharges while idle. If a victim is shocked by the Taser for long enough, they will catch on fire, and the player will immediately gain a one-star Wanted Level. The Taser cannot be found on the streets, but can be bought for $300 from Ammu-Nation.
