    Bethesda games barely work when they are purely single player. Imagine the shitshow it's gonna be with an always online one.

    We kinda got that with Elder Scrolls Online. You know. The horrible, horrible abomination that was belched forth from fiery oblivion after gestating in Todd Howard's deep, dank asshole for far too long for the finished product to be as horrible as it was.

    All I know is that I am a Kung Fu Pornstar Boxing Champion Gangster who saved the world.

    And the Enclave's plan had a much better chance of working than the Master's.

    I have no clue what the first statement has to do with anything. Are you implying that's a flaw?

    Yeah, and their plan was mass genocide...

    Fallout has been long dead ever since Bethesda got the franchise to themselves. The news of no potential titles ala NV only hammers the final nail into the long sealed coffin

    Of course their plan would work.

    Mass genocide via airborne toxins is always easier than mass mutation of the entire human populace.

    I am not so sure about that. Using FEV to kill all living mutants (even slightly irradiated humans) would mean that it would kill all animal life too, and probably most or all plant life, since they are mutated and irradiated too...

    Without any animals or plants, what would the Enclave eat? Rocks?

    I only agreed that their plan is more easier to pull off.

    I didn't actually agree on whether the Enclave would actually benefit from the plan working. If anything, the Enclave's plan would probably finish off all the remaining life in the world or at least life in Fallout America.

    The original canon wasn't ended though. NV did not conclude it, many plot strings it introduced are still way up in the air. The NCR has more problems than believed in Fallout 2, a great deal of corruption, crime, and internal affairs that were only briefly mentioned. The final Fate of the Legion is still a mystery, only speculated upon, and none of their lands were seen. I can't see how people consider NV the "Series' final conclusion" when it just leaves you hungry for more about it's world than satisfied. I wanted to see more of the NCR and learn more about what it was like, as well as the Legion, about the fate of so many other characters and just open plot strings as well. I suppose it's just part of why it was so well-written. I saw New Vegas as being more of a 'rebirth' of the original canon than putting it to rest, giving it potential to grow and spread out in future titles. I saw it as Obsidian was planting a seed, for future Fallout titles from them, just in case. There were canon endings to FO1 and 2 so I imagined if there really was a spiritual "new vegas 2" they would've continued where they left off.

    Unfortunately I suppose we may never see the proper ends to these plot strings, nor what could've happened or what Obsidian planned. The seed lies dormant, but it's still there. Unless Pagliarulo renders it entirely non-canon or muddles everything up. Even so, based on other recent events, even if Obsidian got another title, apparently things still wouldn't have turned out so good. A very raw and terrible deal from every angle.

    I'm actually glad New Vegas 2 isn't going to be a thing. The last thing i want is for Bethesda of all companies to make it and Obsidian no longer has most of the people that made New Vegas.

    I'm just gonna appreciate New Vegas and play it whenever i feel going to the Mojave.

    I'm wondering who here is going to bite the bullet and purchase 76 to tell us all about it. There has to be some poor sucker around here who will... there always is. It's the reason Bethesda stays in business while chugging out mediocre products.

    I mean, there are people here that bought F4. Not many... and none had anything positive to say... but Bethesda doesn't care if you dislike the product. They only care to hype up their next one to get your money. Sigh.

    You are very naive, aren't you?
    94% of NMAers bought FO4 at some point, and 97% of people played it. Most of them finished it. And a huge chunk of players invested 200+ hours in it. That is telling.

    NMAers just act edgy to keep the stereotypical Glittering Gem of Hatred appearance alive, in reality NMA loves Bethesda and Bethesda loves NMA.

    First part is partly true (for some) although I bought it used to fuck THE MAN. Second part is true for 94% (fakenews) of NMA. That is your NMA Millenial-GenZ crossbreed type. They were born and bred on the inferior products brought upon by the collapse of Interplay and the coming of Bethesda Fallout. They are drawn to the atmosphere and story, which often transfers over to the old games, but it does not always catch. The GenZ in them simply sees a post apocalyptic playground where they can imprint MY LITTLE PONY or LARP about Deathclaw orgies.

    Well I am at least happy to say that I neither bough Fallout 4 nor that I ever finished it. I just became incredibly bored after playing it for a couple of days.
    And every time I do consider picking it up when it is on sale because it is the one Fallout game I never finished I remind myself again why it is so terrible.

    As for one of us buying Fallout 76 in order to review it and tell the rest of us what it is like, perhaps we should put some money together and randomly select someone who then buys and plays it. (yeah I know this one will never work but I still had to suggest it)

    Damn I am a bit divided on this one.

    I do feel bad for terminally ill children, being absolutely afraid of death myself despite that I have difficulty with life sometimes.
    I know this is something that makes children happy but still I can't help but think it is kind of a wasted wish.

    Perhaps the development area is indeed a fun experience for these kids to visit, there perhaps being some camaraderie among the developers.
    But on the other hand the picture of a soulless objective/goal oriented department in which people have to endure the day comes more to mind.

    Todd and Pete are probably enjoying the day in general.

    What the hell is wrong with these damn reviewers/journalists/whatever they call themself?
    It woudn't cost bethesda anything to remind each time that Fallout isn't their game and that they didn't make it. Their suckers love them so much and don't want to hear anything about true Fallout for most, it woudn't make any difference.

    I get you, I am also terribly afraid of dying. Most of us are and those who know it naturally feel bad for others suffering something so insidious that deseases are. Doesn't mean I feel bad for everyone though. Some people personaly known can die and all I want to do is to go piss on them, before, during and after their burial.
    However I won't let this kind of misplaced guilt make me feel bad about despising bethesda.
    I saw others 'granting' wishes when it cost them nothing. I do it too, why woudn't I since I loose nothing and so what, it doesn't make me a saint or a 'great human' person.
    Other people than childrens are dying everyday. Some are comdemned to other kind of terrible slow deaths such as real poverty and various social illness, casted aside from a society that won't give them any other real choices or alternatives. But these people aren't children so it's not so bad to just ignore them until they are found dead, alone and in the cold for example. Or worse, because reached a certain stage, dying isn't the worst that can happen to you.
    And if you trace back events, theirs sentencers turn out to be the same kind of 'great' people who 'like' childrens, the unfortunate ones with terminal illness that is.

    So thanks Howard, but unlike you I am not spending all my time shielded from actual reality and don't need a 'reality check'. Stop by to see me one of these days, I will show you reality, on the chance that you were actually genuine in that article. You are not mad if I have a little doubt right? Don't invite journalists and cameras though, other people also enjoy what privacy they have.

    I never played any bethesda games, let alone any kind of multiplayer, I don't even want to see these games and their players altogheter, and I am calling for a massive, quote, 'Return to Sender'. You got that, baby?

    To further show the Dedness of Fallout...let me first assure you I do not receive money from Bethesda to shill their goods.
