    You underestimate the power of hate-viewing.

    A knife skin for CS:GO would probably boost the pre-order sales significantly and I wouldn't want that to happen, even though I really want a knife.

    Bethesda is love, Bethesda is life.
  6. Can't wait to play it. Whether the game is good or not, no one is going to deny that this is the most important RPG this year next to the witcher, where Bethesda goes other game devs will follow based on sales and if the success of Fallout Shelter and the hype surrounding this thing is anything to go off of, this game is going to sell extremely well. I've been listening to a lot of interviews with the voice actors and voice director, Brian T Delenay, Courtney Taylor, Kal El Bogdanove, and they are all extremely passionate about this project. They've described the effort that they've been trying to put into this game and how they took their time working on it for the past 2 years instead of doing binge recording sessions at the end of the project because they wanted to get the best performances and it would break my heart if this game sucked.

    This is Bethesda's chance to do something different and truly surprise us, they've hardly released any info about this game and the little bits we do know about it imply that Bethesda is stepping out of their traditional formula, voiced player character, more of a focus on story, trying to be more like Bioware, for better or for worse they are trying something new and risky. They have big shoes to fill coming off of New Vegas and I hope that Obsidian's work pushed them to make a better RPG and I'm sure they learned a lot from Skyrim respectively. And if the game does suck? Well hopefully they give Obsidian another game, every fallout fan would love to see a game from them, continuing off of new vegas in this new art style that is more true to fallout 1 and 2, god I want that game. Only 2 and a half more weeks, I look forward to the NMA review.

    I've listened to a few of the interviews, too, but I think the few lines of dialogue they've shown have been bad. Of course it's possible that they just happened to show us bad dialogue, and the actual dialogue in the final product will be better, but I doubt that currently because of what I just said about the dialogue they've shown. They say they have been passionate about delivering good lines and voice acting, but the same thing can be said for a lot of other media projects. They try really hard, but in the end, they just don't have the talent.

    From what we've seen, they haven't taken large steps out of their comfort zone. They bring back BoS and super mutants as major factions again, showcase iconic elements of Fallout like power armor, deathclaws, and vertibirds, now in their new engine, without showing much else original. They might be trying to keep things secret, but they honestly could have done more original things with the little bit of gameplay they've shown.

    I don't know, if there's one thing they didn't learn from Skyrim it's the perk/skills system. This just makes me extremely skeptical about EVERYTHING they're doing and I want BGS to make a good game and I want them to improve but I just don't know what the best way to go about it is. I feel like our only hope is if Obsidian makes an amazing Fallout game in every way that will inspire BGS to do better. Maybe...

    It would be weird for a Voice Actor to go all "You know that game I just got paid a lot to act in and who are also paying for this interview? It sucks, and the voice direction was bad, don't buy it"....

    Voice direction on Bethesda games has been so bad so far. They need someone who knows how to get good performances from voice actors.

    Bethesda: Hey guys we are making merchandise for Fallout!

    People: Like Figurines, Props and such?

    B: Nope, Messenger bags, hats, beers and sneakers!

    P:Is the Messenger bag at least a replica of the one the Caravaneer outfit has in New Vegas with the NCR flag and such?

    B: NOPE! We just printed some Concept Art on a generic Messenger bag. LIMITED EDISHUNZ!!!
  14. Skyrim has some of the worst voice direction/acting I've seen in an RPG to date. It's really bad, at least in Oblivion the actors would ham it up and make it fun, even Fallout 3 had better performances.

    Saw a post on reddit, there was massive Fallout advertising somewhere in Australia and they even had Fallout advertisement on buses and shit... Like, who the fuck would give a shit about this stuff on the streets? Who are they advertising this towards?

    The german speaking Fallout 4 version 's gonna get 111 (hehe, nice one) voice actors, some of them are well known in the german VO area. That's quite an improvement over the 5 same voice actors in FO3 and Skyrim, well, it felt like the same 5.

    Still, you can get a number of (really good) voice actors, if you writing is shitty, that's not gonna help.
  17. I just realized we haven't heard anything from Bethesda on celebrity voices being in the game, that's usually one of the early things we hear about. EDIT other than Ron Perlman of course but that's to be expected.

    [INT] So you're going to fight the good fight with youtube videos

    Well you might get a lot of hate views and if you're lucky enough may even get a reddit reaction video on youtube to counter your claims which will bring more views and.. well.

    I'm still very, very cautious about the german voice acting. It's been so incredibly terrible for the past years that I won't take any risks. Seriously, the VA for New Vegas really fucked up my enjoyment of the game until I finally got the english version.

    But nice to see some franconians here, mate :D

    Aye, did my first NV playthrough in german, seriously don't know why. There is so few good dub work in the gaming world. Honestly can't recall any good one in the recent time.

    Oldies like Jagged Alliance 2 got some really nice dubbing, wouldn't change it to OV.
