I've certainly been one of the more vocal "I'm scared for fallout" people around here. And I must say I feel much, much better. The ability to play 3rd person effectively and have *some* sort of action stopping ability (for called shots and the like) are essential to me. While I'm bummed that the "child killer" and prostitution parts may not make it into the new one I get why they're not going to.
All in all I'm feeling better about the whole thing.
