Pretty sure that site is getting hammered right now. I haven't gotten it to load for 20 minutes.

Oh, I knew what it was. I saw the article on Ars Technica 6 minutes after they posted it. I'm pumped. I wonder why they're announcing anything today and not in 2 weeks at their first ever E3 presser. Afraid of leaks? OR MAYBE THEY HAVE A WORKING DEMO. Oh to dream.

Trailer is up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lnn2rJpjar4

Eh. Ok? I guess I don't know what I was expecting. A little underwhelmed, but maybe that's because I've been waiting 5 years to play the next game in one of my all time favorite gaming series.

Pretty weak trailer. I was surprised at how "last gen" the character assets and the dog looked for a freaking FIRST TEASER ANNOUNCE trailer.

Nothing about it got me jazzed to play, showed new mechanics, or explained why I'd want to play this one over the previous ones.

Like Witcher 3 just came out and it looks holy shitballs amazing, as does Dragon Age: Inquisition. I feel like this graphical fidelity is inexcusable right now.

Ok so it's not just me. The textures on that dog looked like shit. And the character models still had that weird running animation from their old gambryo engine that should have been burned with fire sometime in the last 5 years. I thought maybe I was being too picky, but if Shin hates it, I'm totally in the clear.

I'd say the graphics are quite an upgrade over fallout 3/vegas...

On another note, have they said what city it's in?

It's boston. Confirmed via the landmarks like the statue of Paul Revere.

Like shin said though, have you seen the Witcher? The landscapes in that game are off the chain. For a game like Fallout, where the setting is a thematic pillar of the series, it seems like they could have spent a little more time prettying it up.

I apologize if I always come off sounding like I'm too hard on stuff. These are the kind of things I have to discuss on a daily basis about our own work, so I'm applying it to what I saw:

It felt like even the video was hitching in the teaser (and not stylistic hitching. Like the game hitched while recording). The curtains were blowing backwards (like as if played in reverse). The character models looked last gen, the dog (for such a "main character" in the trailer) looked terrible compared to Call of Duty's German Shepherd, and the environments were not even remotely jaw-dropping.

It feels like it's baaareeeely an upgrade over Fallout 3. Even if they ARE a clear upgrade, they are not even on par with what is available within the past year or two's competition. It is *very* behind the curve, graphically speaking. Which might sound cruel but when you're a studio of that size/manpower, it is fairly inexcusable. I can open up UE4 and it looks better out of the box.

This to me feels like it would have been great if it was an immediate sequel to New Vegas, and came out over 2 years ago.

The one he's cropping from is better but I'll post it in a private thread.

Do you guys mind removing that pic from a public thread please?

Fallout 4 pip boy edition has got to be the coolest thing ever

http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/ ... the-place/

Comes with a life size pip boy, that you can slide your phone into, and has an app that connects with the game, and provides and second hand (no pun intended) experience

I didn't see the base building or weapon building videos until today, but hot damn. It's a long wait 'til November.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F1CIojAGxA

Looks just simplistic enough to not take the focus off of the rest of the game, but engaging enough that you could probably spend days fine tuning it for shits and grins.

It's like they took what they did in Skyrim and raised it to the next level. Speaking of, they had decided that Boston was the location way back even before the launch of Skyrim...

Yeah, I was reading that article. Kinda disappointing, but oh well.

I really hope at some point the series takes us to mainland China. I know there was that dlc for FO3 (I think the swamp one) that had a lot of sidequest stuff related to a chinese spy, but I think it would be really neat to show us what happened on the other side during the same timeframe. Not necessarily a chinese vault dweller or equivalent, but maybe something involving you going to china for a protracted sequence. Like, your neighbor was actually a chinese spy who was to infiltrate a vault to subvert it and sets up a cult of personality style overseer that's prepping them to finish the war when the vault re-opens. Or something. I dunno.

I feel like in a world without planes going to China without first starting there might be impossible. Do they even boat? Like, ships? Unless someone's maintained one 200 years later they'd all be worthless.

There was a plane in F3...a ww2 bomber, b17 if I remember right, that bombed the shit outta stuff if you helped those guys

Also jet planes and dc3s in new vegas

And don't forget the vertibirds

Operation Anchorage was arguably the worst dlc for any of the new Fallout games. And, yeah it had the Chinese in it, but it was a simulation about their mainland invasion of America in Alaska. The one I was thinking of was Point Lookout, there was a set of missions regarding a briefcase and the motel and some other stuff. At any rate, I'm not just talking about inserting Chinese lore and items into an American environment. I want to see what happened to places like Beijing and Hong Kong and the other hyper densely populated areas with a totally different cultural feel than what we've seen so far. Did they have vaults? I'm sure they saw it coming, they had to have done something. We've seen fusion-powered Americana, but what about fusion-powered communism?

As far as the boat thing, I don't think it's a problem. I mean, it's not like we've reverted technologically since everyone went into the vaults. Everything is saved on datapads and computers and all kinds a bullshit, I'm sure there's a boat schematic in there somewhere. And like Skully said about how numerous factions operate and maintain vertibirds; I don't think it would be too much of a stretch for someone like the Brotherhood of Steel, Enclave, or NCR to build multiple boats capable of safely crossing the ocean. Hell, Mr. House was able to prevent the bombs from trashing New Vegas, he's probably got a half dozen yachts in storage somewhere just waiting to be retrofitted by an army of Mr. Handys.

Probably. That sold out, like, instantly. Then, they found some more and put em on sale, and THEY went instantly.

Now there are none. :(

Managed to get a Quantum, despite my target's allotment being 8 whole bottles. It's kinda neat. I may just find some of the Berry Lemonade flavored soda and drink it while I stare at the bottle to avoid actually drinking it. Ebay already has them for between 50 and 200 bucks.

Inn's review... Something I didn't know is that you can wear armor piece meal. Like an arm part of one kind, leg part of another type, chest of another etc... Kinda mad max style... So cool

Managed to get a Quantum, despite my target's allotment being 8 whole bottles. It's kinda neat. I may just find some of the Berry Lemonade flavored soda and drink it while I stare at the bottle to avoid actually drinking it. Ebay already has them for between 50 and 200 bucks.

I used to have these led light discs I got from ikea, about the size of a pop bottle, it would look sweet with one lit up under the quantum

So far, it's pretty much fallout 3 with new content. I mean, the mechanics of shooting things have drastically improved. And the visuals are better than in 3, but it still feels a bit outdated.

My gripes so far are as follows.

Questionable decision with the number of weapons. The number of useful mods for each weapon is small, and ultimately, extremely limiting in the scope of weapons you will actually use. I'd prefer a more varied base weapon selection with a less robust mod selection. Personal choice, but I think by the time they did the Gunrunners Arsenal on new vegas, they had a pretty good system. This seems like a gimmick (hey look at the x number of weapons you can make!) which falls apart by the time you realize that you will use 1 barrel, 1 receiver, and one stock exclusively.

Base building is an interesting diversion, but was really poorly implemented. No explanation of mechanics whatsoever. Not overly complicated, but I shouldn't need a youtube video to show me how to power a building. Also, the mechanic is, so far, without purpose in it's own right. There absolutely is no reason for me to do any of it. You don't get any additional story perks, you don't get unique or additional inventory...it's an optional distraction with zero payoff. It's also not balanced well. You need defenses to fortify your settlement against raider attacks, but a small amount of the basic level turrets pretty much guarantees an impenetrable wall of lead to all who would attempt a raid. Maybe that changes as the game progresses, but so far there has been no reason to build a single other defensive structure requiring more of the rare crafting materials.

Vendors cap capacity is deplorable and the economy seems intentional slanted to make caps scarce. There are ways around it (some legit, some hacks) but I feel like the buying and selling could be a little more balanced. Shit costs so much, even with legitimate charisma levels, that you could never afford some of the better equipment (at levels where it would be useful) without circumventing the economy somehow. And picking up every piece of loot you find doesn't generate sufficient value to make it a believable barter system, either. I feel like it's a makeup call for making money too easy to come by in FO 3. Not saying it should be easy to come by great gear, but when there's more incentive to game the system just to afford ammunition instead of actually playing the game, you're doing it wrong.

Having said all of that, I still really like the game. Weird.
