    To me they give a more dieselpunk feel, considering the great dirigibles were built in the 20s and 30s. Also, an atomic zeppelin is actually an idea from back in the 50s.


    Sorry, for the cropped links, first post :D

    I can't wait for this, everything about the trailer is perfect to me.

    I have a feeling it will end up being bland like Fallout 3 since Bethesda doesn't know what they are doing with the series: "we wanted to go original with Fallout 3 and not to use any ideas from the original Fallout 3 project" - oh, did you now? - going original, as in, just making a game called Fallout by going through a check-list of things from old games since you wanted to be "original" but couldn't come up with anything original? Going through a check-list of Fallout related things and applying them to your game doesn't make a good Fallout game, Bethesda.

    I actually quite like what I saw, and to tell the truth, voiced protagonist isn't so bad, as long as theres both a default Male and Female voice, which could be tweaked too, but it's doubtful. Graphics are quite nice though, even though it doesn't have the dark feeling, the lightning effects might have something to do with it, and the weather too. Hope the storyline is as good as the trailer.

    We don't even have a timeframe to place this game in yet. I'm curious where it will fall in line. I also look forward to more info on the Great War, although I am worried about Bethesda telling that story. I'm not sure how I feel about the voiced character since that may detract from the blank slate that we can usually work off of. I didn't see any BoS, Enclave, or NCR so that is a plus in my book...so far.

    NMA LIVES. So many new people. Yay.

    It'll be interesting to see how my state will get "Fallout-ified" Believe it or not, the town in Massachusetts where I live used to have a Nike rocket silo, and these missiles were awaiting launch in case of nuclear attack on Boston by the Russians (Nike rockets were designed to blow up nuclear warheads).

    I think you're all panicking too soon about the Schmault Schmeller talking at the end. If anything that's probably only there to add flavour to the trailer. That's me being optimistic though.

    Best articulation of my reaction to the trailer that I've read thus far. This is also my first (or second?) [EDIT: Turns out I have about 14.] post on this forum, but I plan to make a lot more. FO4's announcement isn't all bad, at least we're getting more members.

    I just wanted to say something I said over in tO:

    I think Witcher 3 looks better graphically due to not rendering as many objects, as in you can't loot everything that isn't bolted down. This frees up a lot of room to make everything prettier. You don't see graphics like GTA V in Bethesda games due to that. I'm not an expert, but I believe that to be the case.

    Is it me, or is the design of the dog just really, really off? I mean German Shepards are nice, they look lovely in reality, but on an engine where it makes hair look like blocks of wood with a nice coat, the German Shepard just look plain weird. They honestly should've went with a Rottweiler or any other stockier, short-hair dog, it would give it a better look and with dark fur, a harder time to see the "LOL" issues with the texture.

    Yeah, the dog wasn't very convincing. It isn't just you. Tons of people have mentioned it across the web.

    I did like the fact that it was a different breed of dog. Wonder if it also came from the vault?

    I hate the airships a lot less now that I remember they were in fallout tactics.

    Voice protagonist: are we going to still have a choice between male and female?

    He could have been cryogenically frozen in the vault, so he still remembers life before the war. Would be kind of an interesting twist, instead of the typical vault dweller growing up in the vault.

    Rumor it takes place 10 years after FO3, no gender select for main game, tons of DLC planned including an expansion. l third person isometric option basically to "appease old schools" takes place in Boston. May be released on 360/PS3. Runs on skyrim engine. Expected release date ~dec this year

    Sounds like Bethesda's MO alright. They basically set up their own timeline but added no logic to how long between the nukes and "present day." Looks like little to no NEW tech, barely any true rebuilding (still using scavenged supplies instead of finally creating some semblance of an infrastructure) and probably very little in the way of world logic to coexist with game design logic (I can believe small amount of farming to supply a large town... not a 6ft by 6ft garden and 1 brahmin for the size of Megaton. You can't say "we didn't show it because it's boring/unimportant" when you make a completely open near seamless world.

    Just a reminder. America is only 240 years old next year. It's been 210 years since America was nuked by the setting of FO5. You can already visit parts of chernobyl directly affected by the disaster without protection other than a geiger counter to stay away from hotspots. You can live in many places in and around Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    It's well established at this point that the effects of radiation in FO are based on 1950s pulp science fiction, not actual nuclear physics. If we're going to go down that route, than we'd have to agree that many of the basic locations and concepts established in FO1 also make no sense in terms of how radiation actually behaves.

    As for the trailer, it was not as bad as I'd imagined. The worst parts for me are the possibility of a voiced protagonist and the badly animated dog, but overall I think the art design is intriguing, and I'm definitely eager to see more of the game. I won't be able to play for it a while though, since I have an old PC and last-gen consoles.
