    A bit of of various news about various topics.
    First some Fallout:
    Fallout 4 is about to get PS4 Pro support, and there's a high res texture pack for PC incoming.
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...and-pc-high-resolution-texture-pack-next-week
    The pack is 58 GB (!) large and requires quite a beefy PC, here are the recommended specs:
    • Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
    • Intel Core i7-5820K or better
    • GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB
    • 8GB+ Ram
    That's quite something. Let's wait for the modders (who have been handing out 4K texture packs right from the start) to optimize that load...

    Thanks to @0wing, here's some more interesting news about Fallout:
    Feargus Urquhart reveals that there was a Fallout 3 before Van Buren. It was also supposed to be 3D, and its development led to Icewind Dale. Funny anecdote: Apparently, the NDL engine used for that was later bought by Gamebryo, which we all know was used in Fallout 3...

    Next is some tidbits about Deus Ex and Obsidian, because apparently the Deus Ex sequel was originally planned to be developed by Obsidian.
    That's certainly interesting.

    And speaking of Deus Ex developers, Eidos is said to be working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game, while the future of Deus Ex is in limbo.

    Will they fix the blurry textures issue with the update? (rhetoric question)

    58 GB of textures and a recommended graphics card that isn't even available on the market right now... Probably not.
    Btw., in the original Bethesda blog post they don't list the RX 490.

    Don't hate the player hate the game. Can you imagine Obsidian doing Deus Ex? It might have actually been good.

    :roffle:

    Meh, you do it.
    I dunno. There's probably a chance. Don't think anyone has asked him in a while. BN usually did the interviewing since he was the most experienced with that, but he's off working for inxile now.
    Not sure what to ask him that hasn't been answered elsewhere already though.

    They haven't optimized the shadow/occlusion culling issues in downtown Boston, and they're releasing a 4k resolution texture pack? Sure, just fuck my shit up Bethesda.

    How about we interview John R. Gonzalez, he's under appreciated and often overlooked for Sawyer and company.
