  2. So you have no defense for edgerunner, got it. Because there bloody isn't one.

    Martinez doesn't have a arc, Lucy barely matters, the gang is disposable, it just boils down to wow look at this loli (who does not fit the cyberpunk aesthetic at all she looks so jarringly out of place) get smashed by adam smasher me so angy now wil play game to kill smasher with her shotgun dropped in city plaza as your free dlc. And yea - that's what CDPR considers to be free dlc, slurp it up, peons.

    Fallout 1 has a ethical question buried within it. What does humanity do after a global nuclear war and why? And even then,let's admit it, it's just there to push the plot along. You don't get into the gritty details. Master thinks he's found a way to adapt humanity to the wastes so now he's going to convert nearly everyone into it so humanity will never have another politically divided world to thrash yet again. It was cooked up in a few weeks or days, put into the story, then the BOS gets it as another ethos (keep tech out of the hands of the masses who blew the world yet Fallout 1 doesn't have high tech up the wazoo so the BOS just sit in their base and patrol a bit), the Hub and Junktown don't care beyond profit, Necropolis just and Shady Sands has the barest hints of communal naturalistic adaptation but is revisited beyond the first hour.

    What does Edgerunners have? Wow cyberpunk world sure does suck, but just like in the base game, you're not seeing any real criticism of the world or how it got there. Just bemoaning and some barely noticed violence against the system that's too big to hurt anyway. In the game if you win all that happens is Arasaka withdraws from North America and Soulkiller isn't on the market anymore, but the AI are still fucking around with it and if Arasaka did it, eventually another company in the USSR or PRC or India or Europe will, too; Night City is still going to get caught up in the second NUSA-Texas/Free State war, world moves on without a care for what you or martinez did. And everyone is acting like edgerunners is some prodigy of anime or a redemption of Cyberpunk when it's just a pretty, sugar-coated turd.

    It's fun to play (I will not say edgerunners is fun to watch - it isn't, the characters and triggers' animation is jank but if it's just vehicles and backgrounds, yes) but they are both vapid cash cows in the end and should just be remembered as such.

    It's a written forum for discussion. You asked a question. I'm sorry your brain has been rotted to the point where you can't pay attention to anything that's more than two sentences.

    To get slightly back on topic, I was just thinking that a claymation style Fallout show might work. Give every character those exaggerated faces from talking heads like Sulik, Gizmo, Aradesh, Myron, etc. Use that original clay deathclaw model. Plus, claymation would make everything feel more retro in general. Like a 90s music video.

    You know, I think I'd actually watch that when I'm high. Hell, maybe even when I'm not high.

    IMO, that is how FO3 should have been designed from the outset—if it had to be FPP.

    I mostly have done so because I wanted to come up with new ideas for factions, lore, and storylines for Fallout. New material that does not conflict with what was already made up.
    I still have my little dream project but I think I will move on from the IP once I have finished that.
    There are not that many reasons any more to hold on to the IP, just like with other favorites like Star Trek.

    They should make vault boy black so vanity fair can compare him to Sambo or something.

    If this show is actually good and mostly based off of Obsidian/Black Isle/etc. Instead of bethshit it'll be one of the most shocking underdog stories in history.

    Huh, Mr. House. Where ever they’re taking this series it’ll be interesting to see. Have they revealed where in the Fallout timeline the story lands?
