    I never really looked into that stupid thing, is it any good? (who am I kidding, this is Bethesda we are talking about)

    This would be a good opportunity to announce Brink 2 and watch Fallout fans literally start eating each other.

    this is actually catchy ._.
    But now as I think about it, Tunnel Snakes are not as ridiculous as The Kings

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but TES Online turned out to be a failure, I don't think they will do that again soon

    I shoulder-glanced it at a friends for a while. Can't tell you too much about the game except that it visually looked decent. My thoughts are that it is a pretty WoW. with a setting for BGS fans.

    I think failure is a subjective take - realistically BGS had to enter this territory (amongst others, if they are going to keep rolling). One hit every couple years probably isn't going to keep the lights on. They need to experiment and see how to stretch there legs on unknown terrain - why not with TES? The capital investment for that one game could in the longrun lead to learning pay off & savings to future releases.

    So, what are your bets on streamlining? What will they remove?

    P.S. I know a new feature they will add though! Dynamic Shadows ftw!

    That feel when you're actually using Van Buren's logo.

    Probably skill stats. You'll get one stat. Gun. Then S.P.E.C.I.A.L. will be reduced to Skyrim levels with one stat for health and then one for punching things or carrying them (only one or the other though).

    Y'know, Fanny, I actually think I'm starting to warm up to your schtick.

    Not much to say about F4 we haven't visited and revisited in the last 3/4 of a decade. Here's hoping they learned a few lessons from 3's better add-ons and New Vegas and that the presence of androids is kept to a(n optimally sub-noticeable) minimum. Call me an optimist, but I'd venture we can expect at least one of the two.

    This might actually be better in the long run, because they might just nail the shooting part... probably not.... as even though shooting someone in the head 200 times from a distance of 3 feet is pretty funny, but it kind gets a bit dull after a while.

    But entire East Coast is just retcon of Fallout1/2. Nothing new.

    Frankly, I'd rather F4 to be a decent shooter than a poor shooter/shitty rpg mix.

    Funny to see our concerns vs. mainstream gamers'. The hottest issue seems to be whether Three Dog will be returning.

    I feel like I would have liked Three Dog more if Bethesda hadn't given him that painfully, mind-numbingly stupid conversation when you meet him ("SO YOU FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT USING YOUR VOICE OVER THE RADIO???????") Mr. New Vegas at least had some good jokes.

    I also don't see how they can keep implementing androids without reaching lore-breaking technological singularity problems. Part of Fallout's charm is that it's a world that developed based on retro tech (tube-punk?). To have a fully-functional android capable of fooling humans (like in FO3) is absolutely stupid Blade Runner fanfiction.

    If it had been completely different but had a Fallout stamp on it, what would that look like? Would that have received a worse reaction from Old school FO players?

    Ignoring the blatant logic/lore errors - maybe BGS did the best they could given how the contract and timelines were setup back then?

    Just speculating, please don't flay me
