All I can really remember is Gunny, and the M2 toting super mutants. I tried replaying it on ironman couple months back, got wrecked by a single RPG round due to stupidity. Definitely makes the game hard as shit.

I'm just going to leave this here:



It's long and rambly but worthwhile. I wish for Fallout 4 to have the right amount of shandification. Also: "What do they eat?"

Why anyone would play these games on anything but a PC is beyond me.

I'm not sure, IIRC the map in Fallout 1 and 2 was pretty huge in terms of area covered. If a person was able to travel around in first-person instead of in map-mode the distances between settlements would be much greater. Or were you talking about the number of people inside the settlements?

I liked NV more, but it felt like there was more little things to stumble into in Fallout 3. Maybe that's just the way things worked out for me and there was technically more little interesting things in NV. It felt like NV had more communities.

Can't wait for 4 though...I also wish they'd put more of a surival spin on it.
I think that the inclusion of hardcore mode was really good. Also there were better dialogue options than in F3.

NV also felt much more like F1 and F2 to me than F3 did.

NV was supposed to be more of post-post-apocalyptic setting than a post-apocalytipc one. I'm not entirely sure why they decided to set F3 so many years after the end of F2 in the timeline of the series. I think it would have made more sense to set the story earlier in the timeline since it takes place so far away from the goings-on in F1 and F2.

I agree about making survival more important. I really liked the hardcore option.

Instead of a vault dweller or a guy shot in the head you could be an android that just gained awareness or was just turned on.
I really like that idea. :clap:

That could be cool. I like the idea of a wasteland overgrown with moss.

If they ever do make a Fallout MMO I hope it splits the difference between New Vegas and DayZ.

Strangely the countdown timer seems to run off your system time. I discovered this because the system time on my Windows partition is always screwed up (it's not my CMOS battery). I thought maybe I could cheat by changing my time to tomorrow one minute before the countdown expires, but it ended up just sitting at the Please Stand By screen.

Some dudes on Reddit looked at the source and it appears that there are references to last-generation consoles(Xbox 360), so it seems likely that it's going to use a legacy engine.

Not that I care, I have north of 300 Hours on NV, and that was released 5 years ago.

I'm going to be a contrarian and say that...if they could remaster FO1 and FO2 with the engine used for NV...I would totally buy them.

Not at all surprising... This has probably been in the works for 5 years or so (albeit very hush hush). I'm sure it'll be a late next year release, after they port it over and polish it up (if it hasn't already been done). I have absolutely no doubt that Fallout will be released at some point. But I'll take what some internet badasses (redditors) have to say with a grain of salt. There's been reddits about fallout4 since fallout3 came out.

Yeah it's a teaser, but I am interested as hell. Looks good, at least visually.

I always like having a dog. Every Fallout should have a non robo dog as a companion.

CHOOO CHOOOOOOOO!!!! Looks like it is taking place in Boston. I saw the baseball bag hanging over a business, and then the statue. I was curious what they were doing with the dog. I'm digging it... Cannot wait. No release date as of yet though.

I might be misremembering, but this looks a lot more colorful. Red! :clap:

I'm on board. I'm a non completionist. I play until I just can't take it anymore but I've enjoyed the previous titles.

If they have the opening take place before and immediately during the war, I'll be so fucking happy. Now, where did I put my dosimeters...

I'm guessing that Bethesda noticed that one of the first things people do is mod the colors. Green tint sucks.

It has a very Bioshock: Infinite color scheme to it.

Also, I sorta feel as if this is close to that leaked script IGN had a while back; the introduction is you running to the Vault and going into Cryostasis. I was hoping you'd be an Android from the Institute waking up but whatever.

Was also hoping for an android story. Last guy I played ended up being mostly machine anyway at the end.
