Fallout 4 is coming!

Recommended Posts

Really thought Bethesda can't hurt me anymore, but I just found out they still can.

Yeah someone on RPGCodex summed my feelings up pretty well "Zero expectations. Still disappointed".

 

Oh well, hopefully the hype surrounding the game will encourage me to finally find some time for Wasteland 2.

It's their world building ability that draws me in.

 

I can agree on that, but I really wish they made more logically consistent worlds - as one youtuber kept asking (someone posted a video of him here)... "What do they eat?" .. This is really the only gripe for me with Bethesda's world building. They don't really consider details all that important except for the atmospheric ones.

 

It was this one I think.

 

Also, wow, Fallout with colors? And I wonder if they reuse of NV's electrical logo is on purpose or just tardyness.

Looks like a colorful fallout 3. I wonder if it's using the skyrim engine

I like what I've seen thus far, and I'm looking forward to the release. Naysayers => ignored.

After watching the trailer a few thoughts popped up:

 

- The graphics look to be around the same level as Portal 2 to me. That's odd considering Portal 2 was released years ago. It doesn't look too bad though.

- A lot more colors this time.

- "War never changes"...should've expected that.

- Some of the scenes remind me of the first Bioshock. The other fallouts had similar style, so it's nothing to get worried about. I think the additional colors are what makes it more Bioshocky

- Actual gameplay footage? Definitely looks like it. Huge plus.

- I'm guessing those are flashbacks, but I also feel like you'll be able to explore the world before the bombing. Maybe the Beth-standard character creation thing will be done before the disaster. Just random speculation.

- Some ironic details, hoping the game will have more funny details like that.

- I like how this time the cities/settlements expand upwards and the environments look fairly natural to me. A lot better than vanilla FO:NV.

- This looks like what Metro 2033 could've been. Not a surprise though.

- No HairFX, some very ****ty textures. At least they are not promising too much.

Just imagine someone would port New Vegas into the Fallout 4 engine. It would be so super awesome. More ambient shadow (ambient shadow at all...), better performance with same graphic quality, etc... Sounds pretty cool.

I've always thought Bethesda games look about three years behind in their graphical tech.  This looks very acceptable to me though, barring one or two cork sniffing annoyances.

Fallout 3 wasn't that bad, guys.  Okay, the story wasn't very good, but the world they created was pretty fun to explore.

 

I never buy Bethesda games for their main story.  It's their world building ability that draws me in.

here's a question about fallout 3

What do the people on the capital wasteland eat?

in fallout 1, 2 and NV you see farms with crops and brahmin in every town you visit... in 3 there is a single brahmin pen in the entire game as far as i remember.

also, how can cars that were destroyed by nukes over 200 years ago, still have gas in their tanks?

im too tired to keep making a list (plants, animals, mutant and so on) but i think i make my point

non sensical world building at it's finest indeed

 

Mama Dolce's fine processed foods of course! Like with all multinational conglomerates, you don't need to know where the food comes from.

Quality "journalism": "See the guys in armor there? That’s the Enclave, policing who can and cannot get into the vault. Spoilers: most people could not secure vault space...but it’s difficult to feel bad, considering the vaults were actually just glorified testing labs. I digress."

Also, from RPS: "It seems that the Brotherhood of Steel – or some local equivalent – had some manner of foothold pre-bombs here. Are they stopping these poor shmoes from reaching the fallout shelters?"

"This dog looks a hell of a lot like Dogmeat, a mutt that first appeared in Fallout 1 as a Mad Max reference"

 

Yes... no. Actually it doesn't look at all like Dogmeat.

Have you ever run across an ex a few years after you stopped seeing them frequently and looking at how lackluster their life is feel a small amount of disappointment?

 

That's how I felt about this trailer.

To me the best fallout game ever made would be a cross between Red Dead Redemption and New Vegas. American Post Apoc is inherently a western and sci fi subgenre, I really wish they'd explore that more fully.

 

I'm eternally disappointed with the Nexus being so fixated on better sex and animated prostitutions mods, and not be enterprising enough to make a mod where you can spin revolvers, Ocelot-style, or fan the hammer of the single-action guns, or live out my fantasy of being Lucas McCain.

Game looks so mundane and uninspired. Its like bethesda found old hard drive filled with unused art assets for fallout 3 and decided to combine all that fallout 4. Same 1950 setting, same plastic gamebyro npcs, same super mutant with cages... The graphics alone not even going to pass witcher 3 and that is sad. I bet old gtx 250-300s will be able to run this 3D0 army men game.

 

My biggest disappointment isn't graphics its that bethesda creates zero interesting lore. All they do is take old lore from fallout 1-2 and slap on 1950s feel. It makes for such a boring post apocalypse setting like The Road. I can't even call it fallout. fallout 1-2 world felt so interesting to delve in because of the towns and faction politics made it alive. Fallout tactics for the PC had a really cool setting atmosphere also. Fallout 3 however the whole world feels inexplicably dumb. All the npcs seem docile and retarded with no soul. Everyones either a bandit or a adult with child like intelligence. 

 

It pissed me off that bethesda high jacked the fallout franchise and seeing all these facebook posts exploding and reddit etc. Its like the 12-20 million something americans that watch WWE all of sudden get replaced and forgotten by WWE for Chinas billion something population.

Well. I'm buying it. It might be a fools errand to try to glean too much of 100+ hours of gameplay from a 3 minute trailer, of which less than half was actual gameplay.

 

I look at it this way, there have been 4-5 Fallout titles (depending on who you ask) none of them have sucked. I seriously doubt this will be the first.

Of course it won't be the first, that was Fallout Tactics.

Tactics was ok. You just had to like it for what it was. Not what it wasn't

The console title, FALLOUT: BROTHERHOOD OF STEEL did suck IMO.

 

And I say that as someone who generally likes action titles of its ilk.

This has really been an issue since Oblivion for them. They seem utterly incapable of writing intelligent characters.... or well, humanoid characters at least. Parthunaax was slightly better than usual and so was Fawkes to a degree.

when dealing with intelligent characters, the player needs a certain degree of intelligence to follow the situation. so they make everyone dumb so even the dumbest player can understand


The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.
