There are enemies that are circular, and there are enemies that aren’t circular. These are the ones that are circular.

You have to hand it to Bethesda – they’ve choosen a part of the US that really lends itself to surviving a nuclear apocalypse seemingly unscathed. That, and getting the designers of The Pitt to actually play Fallout 3 all the way through, so they could get a feel for what people might want to play.
