Fallout 3 is aiming to bring us closer than ever to our characters, through an innovative attribute-selecting experience. Instead of navigating a series of menus and options, we'll be living out the crucial moments of our vault-dwelling avatar - literally his formative years.

Runescape developer Jagex has revealed a console version of its browser-based fantasy MMO is something it keeps considering, with the arrival of Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 making such more tempting than ever before.
"It's certainly more interesting with the current generation of consoles of course because they're far more internet-connected than the previous generation and it just wasn't worth looking at," the game's creator Andrew Gower told us recently.
