    This was the other thing I worried about. Heading even further into 'ghouls are zombies' territory.

    They won't do Supers because of budgetary reasons.

    You know, I could think of a few ways to make it work; take a few inspirations from shows like Revolution, Jeremiah, Jericho, maybe even Falling Skies, make it a show about a freshly opened vault trying to establish a new society. Shit, make it the story of Vault 15 with all the different ideologies and stuff, how the various groups form and they scatter when it opens.
    Of course, that's not gonna happen. There's gonna be super mutants, and FEV, and BoS, and a vault dweller looking for his dad his son his sister. The story is gonna be all epic and there'll be explosions and mark my words, the main character will have a PipBoy and they will shove in VATS, because you just know that they're gonna do that for the awesome slomo killshots.

    Metro 2033 but it's the New York subway in the decades after the Great War

    But yeah, they will hit all the icons

    I can't say I'm terribly excited for it. The best one could hope for is a true-to-script recreation of one of the games. If that were the case, I wouldn't mind seeing 1 or New Vegas. But I think New Vegas would be more feasible in that regard.

    I made a fan cast for a HBO adaption of New Vegas a while back. I might dig it out.

    IIRC I had Dan Stevens as the Courier, Jonathan Pryce as Father Elijah and Kiefer Sutherland as Joshua Graham

    I actually thought Joshua Graham was Kiefer Sutherland at first.

    I don't know why you guys actually think Bethesda would acknowledge anything not Fallout 3, 4 or 76 on an official tie in.

    76 Wastelanders tried to claw back some good will by directly referencing NV actually

    How would they reference New Vegas? Doesn't 76 take place before even Fallout 1?

    Now imagine this but he's doing it into the Grand Canyon


    Off the top of my head, the main theme is a reprisal of the Vegas theme. Mr House is directly involved in some pre war correspondence and the gold bars that make up the plot of the DLC were stolen from casinos on the Vegas strip (pre-war) from the Ultra Luxe, resulting in a police shootout that ended at the Lucky 38

    But wasn't the Ultra Luxe a post war casino? Like they even stated Michael Angelo created the neon signs for the families and everything.... They retconed more shit to be pre war in 76, didn't they?

    Nah Ultra Luxe was pre-war. Remember there's the pre-war billboards for it that dot I-95 and Long 15

    Prett ysure those are post war. The billboard even makes reference to it being "The rebirth of Luxury" and House is really pushing for his strip to be a tourist spot.

    Nah there's no way those old billboards are House's doing. Besides wasn't the point of the tribal rehabilitation that House was imitating the pre-war casinos?

    He was imitating the luxury of the old strip, not literally reusing the old casinos. The whole place was a ruin when his Securitrons rolled out, and Michael Angelo's job is explictly to create the neon signs and the like for the casinos. Nothing in New Vegas said the Ultra Luxe was a pre war casino, the White Glove Society even dressed in tuxedos during their Tribal days if Great Kahns' graffity is anything to go by.

    It's interesting to consider the idea that the billboards are post-war. I hadn't thought of that before. Though why they look as dilapidated and rotted in the same fashion as pre-war era signs I don't know since you'd expect the cost of paint to be a little fresher.

    The Khan graffiti I'd say is either an inconsistency or referring to them in their current state, since Id think it'd be against the portrayal of their rehabilitation for them to have always worn tuxes.

    I mean, they are out in the sun on places where raiders, soldiers and adventurers carry guns. Have you seen how fast a billboard gets whitewashed in the sun in places where they don't have the money or the care to be maintining them often?
