We have some nifty photos from  the midnight madness launch at Bestbuy in Rockville, MD.  The launch at that store was extra special with members of the development team, Lynda Carter, actress and wife of ZeniMax MDIA CEO Robert Altman.

Thousands of fans jammed stores to purchase one of the most anticipated videogames of the fall, Fallout 3, at midnight launch events across the country last evening. At the Best Buy in Rockville, MD, which is located near Bethesda Game Studios, members of the development team, along with Lynda Carter, actress and wife of ZeniMax Media CEO Robert Altman, were on-hand to celebrate with hundreds of fans who lined up in the rain as early as 1:00pm and came as far as North Carolina to buy the game and meet the developers. 

Fallout 3 is now available in stores and online in North America and will be released in Europe and Australia on October 30 and in the UK on October 31. Developed at Bethesda Game Studios – creators of the 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion® – Fallout 3 is available on the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3(TM) computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.

Fallout 3 features one of the most realized game worlds ever created. Set more than 200 years following a nuclear war, you can create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of Washington, D.C. however you choose. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland.

Hailed as one of the most anticipated games for 2008, Fallout 3 has already won numerous awards including Best of Show from the official Game Critics Awards at E3 2008 and a perfect 10 out of 10 from Official Xbox Magazine. The game also scored perfect marks from Gamespy.com who awarded the game a 5 out of 5, Eurogamer.com who gave the game a 10 out 10 and the Associated Press who rated the game a 4 out of 4.
