    I tried all possible combinations today, theouterworlds.obsidian.net, tow.obsidian.net etc. to no avail, and someone else seems to have found it...

    https://outerworlds.obsidian.net/

    Nothing there yet, but I'm sure this is going to be the site for the game.

    How good the female player character looks is going to determine my vote for this game. Lately it's been the most reliable method that instantly reveals a game's quality.

    Obsidian: "Our game is this and that...blablabla..."
    Me: "Show me the female!"

    :lol:

    Nope. My final verdict: "It's going to be shit".

    Sad, but true.

    That seems a bit harsh, given that we know basically nothing about it.

    Looks like New Vegas but in space.

    I know all I've wanted to know. Hope you're not gonna pull a "but you haven't played the game yet". :D

    It's not.

    If this was a Beth game perhaps you could say that "but mods will fix it", but it's not. It's a goddamn Unreal Engine 4 game, so forget about modding.

    Looks neat. Gonna wait for more gameplay footage and reviews before I make any decisions about this.

    It's quite clear they've made their mind up. Just wait for the game and come to your own conclusions. It's not like their opinion should influence your personal thoughts about it.

    And I've given them a chance for the very reason you've described. It didn't turn out to be something I would be interested in. I'm not complaining, I'm just disappointed. Felt the same way for CP2077.

    lol bro

    if they're smart they'll release a devkit like ark did and then you can make anything you want with the infinitely more powerful UE4 editor

    also, bethsoft pays, you don't have to shit on their competition for free

    I don't get the hate. The gameplay looks just like New Vegas, just with a few new features and better gun play.

    Ah, "hate", the typical fanboy expression... "If you don't like it, then you must hate it."
    So it's comparable to a 10 year old game mod then.

    I would rather have it being comparable to a 20 year old game mod. Fallout 2. :nod:

    Fair point. Except, the base game Fallout, was miles better than Bethesda's turd. Not to mention it was the original IP and not a superficial copy of it. Also, it was the same people & company who made FO2, for that reason I wouldn't call it a "mod".

    I said hate because you seem to hate everything about so far. And of course I'm comparing the game to New Vegas. It's what is trying to be. It even has the exact same dialogue system. I don't see what's wrong with comparing a new game with a old game. We compare fallout 4 to fallout 1 all the time.

    FO4 fanboys have told me that a lot, and now it's Obsidian fanboys' turn by the looks of it. If I hated it, I wouldn't have created this very thread before everyone else in order to talk about it. I called it "shit" out of disappointment, although it's definitely gonna be mediocre.

    I thought it was trying to be FO4, even Obs itself seems to position it that way. The gun reticle, by the way, is a total FO4 rip-off.

    From the 14 minutes of gameplay that i saw, i did not see any obvious improvements on their Fallout New Vegas formula. This actually looks like a reskinned version of it. The level of character animations were already present in Bloodlines 14 years ago.

    I guess they can still save this with interesting skill system and a great story, but i'm not overly optimistic about this game in general.
