    Lovecraft is nice material, as long there is a good writer to handle it...which is what they don't have(or not allowed to handle it), that mean we pretty much will get another point lookout or something worse this time.

    If the DLC starts out with another river boat captain I suggest you all shoot him first before you go explore the new region.

    Visually, well it doesn't look bad but I really get no "Must buy on day 1 feeling" after watching the trailer.
    Well that military base or observatory looks interesting but it will probably turn out to be rather disappointing.
    Angler fish mirelurk kings? And I couldn't really make out what that new big creature is.

    So far it is just more Fallout 4.

    Oh yeah, as someone else here also wrote, the feral Ghouls really look even more like zombies now * sigh *

    I enjoy Lovecraftian stuff but I don't like it when someone like Bethesda keeps fucking it up the ass.

    I'm willing to bet 90% of the NPCs in Far Harbour will probably be essential except the bad guys.
    It won't be like Point Lookout where you can choose someone to kill at the end, you'll probably be forced to kill that mecha-synth at the end and the DLC will abruptly end.

    You just cannot expect it to be good, huh?

    Well, there will be a new companion.

    Why would I ever hold out any expectation that it'd be good considering Bethesda's track record and especially considering what Fallout 4 turned out to be?

    I don't understand. Are you offering this picture as proof that it will be good?

    Land size doesn't mean shit if you don't have the stuff to fill it with.

    Also, I'm willing to wager that the old guy from the trailer is the new companion.

    It is gonna be bigger, than Shivering Isles, but yeah, the amount of content is questionable.
    There will be trappers, there will be traps, tacticool marine shit, harpoon gun and Russians among you will laugh their asses off.

    Really?
    And here we are, discussing its consistence, smell and colour.
    At least, after the 19th.

    Have a new big map is one thing you may consider as good thing, but since we all know this big map will going to full of uninteresting characters like always, run around in that kind of world is not going to be really interesting.

    "If" they do, I am skeptical. But it would only be added to a DLC, not the base game and would be too little too late, not to mention out of context to the core game not having RPG elements.

    I wonder if he'll have the same amount of depth as the Bethesda's other lauded Fallout companions, will he/she reach the emotional heights of say, that German Sheperd? Or maybe, that other German Shepard? Maybe if they try really hard they'll be as good as Jericho, everyone's favourite companion. :roll:

    Also the new companion might be only usable in Far Harbour DLC, anyone knows if we can take that companion back to the Commonwealth? I am curious now.

    But still I usually play solo, no companions... Because they are always dumb in Bethesda games and spoil my fun more than having them around saying stuff from time to time... So what I am trying to say is that I assume there are more people out there like me that prefer playing solo, so having a new companion doesn't mean much...

    Also being forced to take Valentine already spoils that DLC for people like me... Because in Fallout 4 we have choices and we can play with the character we want, or something like that as seen on the game description IIRC.

    I am not going to bash the DLC until it comes out and it is shit, if it is not shit I will even compliment it because no matter if I don't like something I also like to point out the good stuff in it.

    But I can see what each side is saying, bashing a DLC before it is out doesn't sound fair, but defending it doesn't sound fair either because it is not out... But then assuming the DLC will not be good (in some people's opinion) is understandable because we can look at Bethesda history and see what has been happening:
    I predicted a lot of bad things about Fallout 4 before it was released and I was spot on on most of them, I failed at some and totally missed the mark on a few (like only be able to wear PA in certain specific parts of the game for example).

    The past serves as a good way of predicting the future because we can see and analyse behaviours and actions of certain individuals and companies/organisations. But who knows, Bethesda might use this DLC to show us that they can still make something more RPG-like, after all they surprised me with making a free Survival mode with needs and stuff, but judging by their past work I am not optimistic.:look:

    Dam another lost relative storyline. Bethesda must have a huge lost relative fetish. I can't wait for fallout 5's 30$ dlc "fathership beta" where we have to rescue our twice removed step uncle from the evil Aliens underneath the mojave wasteland
