Fallout 3 Teaser

Bethesda Softworks released a teaser today for the highly anticipated third installment of the Fallout series, aptly titled Fallout 3. Apparently Bethesda bought the rights to the series after Vivendi bought Sierra and stuck the franchise in the closet of woe, right by the shoebox of despair.
Anyway I'm a big fan of Fallout 1 & 2 and this is good news to me, since Bethesda did great work on the Elder Scrolls games and whatever else they might be famous for. In a perfect world, Bethesda would just give the rights to Troika as a present, since the best of the old Fallout developers migrated over there. But that's pretty unlikely for now, as Troika has been dead for two years. As you can tell, I'm a huge computer game nerd.
The teaser is pretty weak. It's more of an advertisement than anything else, all CGI intro and no in-game anything. However, free eye candy. Release date is set for Fall 2008 (for now).
