Anyone seen any pics of this yet, or is it in a very early state? I know Bethesda bought the rights...anyone seen anything on it?

Ugh, it looks like it will be godawful. "Morrowind with guns", if you will. It's going to be as bland as Morrowind I bet.
It's based on Bethesda's new Oblivion engine, which looks like this. (http://www.elderscrolls.com/home/obliv_cvr.htm) Because of these graphics, the game will be shorter than expected.
I think that's it for now, they only bought the rights to fallout recently. Hope that helped.

If it isn't turn based using the SPECIAL system, it ain't fallout. You realise, Rednik, that it's going to be 'BASED' on the Oblivion engine, it isn't actually going to 'USE' the engine. This could mean we still have an isometric (or at least third person view), turn based/real time like Fallout: Tactics but with 3d graphics.
You couldn't make a Fallout RPG with a first person perspective, it would become an Action/RPG then... however the idea of a Fallout FPS would be fun.

Fun for all of the 5 seconds it takes you to remember what Fallout 1&2 are like. Then it'll get right on your nerves. ;)

Wow, aren't we all optimistic? :)
But based on my experiences with Bethesda (which consists of Daggerfall :p ) it will be a huge world populated by 10,000 copies of 5 people. And not very good.

Daggerfall was awful...ugh...
And, from my previous knowledge of Bethesda's games, the five aformentioned NPC's will be walking search engines, where the player searches for a word, and recieves a poorly-worded paragraph that may or may not contain a quest.

Why be optimistic, it would all be too easy then, we need the cynical opinions to get the points across to those who make what we want.
..but do they ever listen?
Either way the game will suck, as do most sequel's.

This isn't even a sequel. It's not even gonna be more of the same.
This is Morrowind with GUNZ.
