Don't like it? Just don't buy it. Simple.
Actually it amazes me that anyone here bought FO3 at all.
I bought it.
But I'm not part of either side on the for/against battle.
I came here for mod help and stuck around.
Hovertank my ass
that tank has pontoons on it bro.
Someone, somewhere, thought the blue was a good idea, and now they are ashamed.
I don't get the hate. It justs sounds like those house things for Oblivion (One for the mages, one for the thieves, one for the fighters, and one for the assassin), but better; A DLC specialized for a certain style or type of play.
Sure. All console players are retards that like being buff and not having brains. And all black people like grape soda, watermelons, and chicken, wear grills and oversized jewelry, and are in jail or have been in jail. And Jews have lots of money and are lawyers, bankers, or jewelers. All stereotypes are ture, right? Right?
If the DLC is the specialized addon for combat players.. for what group was the main game then?
The whole kit and kaboodle, I guess.
Why are they shilling DLC for a half-baked game that needs to be patched?
Negligence or greed?
And desperate, not-so-subtle strawman traps aside, I've never met a black dude who didn't like chicken. So what, it's a staple. Why should there be any shame attached to poultry consumption?
You just skipped the whole point of my anger. I really hate people who think a console player is a modern neanderthal. What gives? Do you have proof that console players are dumber then PC players?
And I know a black guy who doesn't like chicken. Hah!
Oh come now, with the portion of the population that owns computers now it was inevitably going to happen, it just wasn't inevitable that every company would target them and pull the crap that caused the last industry crash again.
No, that's what you expect if they treat it like it's a part of the toy industry, which is what many are currently doing. If it was treated like the film industry then quality and target audience would be more of a mixed bag.
Indeed, that's one amazingly ugly piece of work. Maybe the angle doesn't help but given that it's a screenshot from Bethesda, it should look better than what's in the game. I think the problem is simply that the chassis of the tank really doesn't meld with the shit strapped to the top of it.
A larger portion of frat boys buy and enjoy them. That said, there are retards on both all systems, just play pretty much any game online to meet the PC retards.
I personally can't wait to fight on Hoth... or Alaska... or whatever... wait, I have a PS3...
Marketing Department: "We've been reading reports that some people aren't entirely *happy* with Fallout 3."
Developers: "Well what can we do about it?"
Marketing Department: "Well a study we conducted showed that immersion and graphics are the most important things for games these days.. so we suggest bloom. Lots of it. Create a whole world of bloom. Bitches love bloom."
Developers: "Why.. why that's GENIUS! Geoffry! Break out the coffee, we need to find a way to increase the bloom ten-fold for the next DLC!"
[I 'wryyyy!!!' every time I hear about Bethesda doing ANYTHING these days...]
Well, to their credit, it seems like they made an attempt to model it on an old Soviet vehicle - ZIL-29061 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afJ18eJeNgU&feature=related
The bigger problem is that it is an abandoned model from 70s-80s. Thus, 1)doesn't work with the FO retrofuturism; 2)WTF is it doing in Alaska.
the "screw" tank was a real prototype I think originally developed in the 50's. I think it's great "retro-future".
EDIT: The video is of a russian vehichle, but I remember seeing illustrations of us designs in really old popular mechanics magazines.
I dunno, the screws don't really make it look all that 50's to me. Looks like it might fit better in Cyberpunk or Steampunk settings. Actually probably Steampunk.
Here is one from 1944, so you can get an idea of when this idea was really started.
They are BUILT for snow.. so fit into alaska very well indeed.
Germans! Again ... nazis ? Uffos! No more doubts ...
Does it exclude to give criticism or state his oppinion?
if you LOVE it no one will bash you for that oppinion either.
Me too. Most of this community are fans of 1 and 2, and if you didn't know that those assholes at bethesda are a bunch of hacks who would botch the entire franchise by now, wow, are you suffering a bad case of denial. I can understand the Oblivion fans liking it, but Fallout 1 was art. Fallout 2 we began to see that art suffer the fate of sequels. Fallout 3 suffers the same problem that Godfather 3 had when compared to Godfather 1- it might be entertaining, but really, compared to the original masterpieces- crap.
My cat's breath smells like cat-food!
I see this tank design form bethesda isn't to good. It's not because it's hover tank or screw tank (which by the way is), but because it doesn't fit Fallout universe. There is a lot of things in retrofuture and Fallout isn't a trash can where you can put everything with label of retrofuture.
You may say that it's just a screen and i haven't seen it in game. Yeah, you're right. But i very doubt, it turns out to be better. I even think this tank won't be able to move on screen because of engine limits. So you may say that this is just a small piece of world, just one thing, not worth complaining about it. Well yeah, you would be right.. but you're not. Fallout 3 has so little fallout themes itself that every little thing like this is a another nail in coffin.
By the way, this kind of tank / battleship fits more Fallout imho, and it would explain why they invented Power Armors and used them instead of tanks.
