Yep, Fallout in name only. It will be dumb downed just like Oblivion was I am sure.

Sounds like another "Brotherhood of Steel" to me.

 

No matter to speculate though, Bethesda might even suprise with Fallout 3's awesomeness :mellow:

Hardly. I am expecting a real time game with a First Person/Third Person toggle with no ability to form a party set in a fairly empty game world with a story that has no substance to it. Basically, Oblivion with Guns.

Now, now. What if let's be positive now, shall we?

I am expecting that tech demo of Van Buren I downloaded to be more Fallout that Bethesda's Fallout. I expect Fallout Tactics to be more akin to Fallout than Bethesda's Fallout.

For a reference, has there been any PC game that hasn't suffered from being a consoleport?

Oddly enough, I've read the same objections raised against the Alien game. Not on this board, but in places where having such opinions wouldn't be considered trolling. The complaints seem to be that it's not going to be a pure PC game and Obsidian doesn't make the kind of games that cater to the setting. I like to point out that faults of old Obs games won't necessarily make it into the Alien game, and that the game has great potential, but when you know absolutely nothing about a game naysayers will always have the edge in an argument.

Uh, that article says absolutely nothing about the game being on the Xbox360. It's completely baseless speculation. The only thing they know is that the game is using the same game engine as Oblivion.

 

Now clearly we won't have turn based combat in 2D, but I don't need that to make a game Fallout. I need excellent characters and storylines, an awesome post-apocalyptic world, and the SPECIAL character creation system. I think Bethesda is a decent enough company, so I'll reserve judgement until I actually play the game.

Stop it. The kiddies want to make fun of Fallout 3. Simple reading comprehension need not apply.

 

 

Seriously though, it's funny that the title implies that it is "Not unlikely says Bethesda" yet, as you pointed out, there's nothing from anyone that even hints at it. All it is is the author saying it would make sense.

Pessimist or no, I just can't imagine the Fallout "feel" recreated on the Oblivion engine... It's like opposites that meet, matter - antimatter, pasta - antipasta etc. :'(

I bet its going to be awesome!

 

I'm ready to order now.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

Says someone who LOVES Oblivion. :crazy:

 

FO3 is being made by Bethesda which means the chances for me to like it are very, very low. :bat:

I'll wait until I see something from the game itself before even thinking of forming an opinion.  Or something.

Seriously, where's the forum based fun in that?
