    These types of trailers don't really do much for me anymore. I'll just wait for gameplay presentations before i make a judgment.

    It's Steam page says that there are going to be companions and optional system that will let to choose character faults for attribute faults- for example if you're having trouble fighting raptors you can get Raptorphobia that permamently lowers your combat skills when fighting them.

    wow they really screwed up the translation in my country

    i like the idea of picking character's disadvantages but it's an easy thing to screw up - think of traits in fallout, some are just beginner's traps. i also don't like that they're optional, i generally prefer games with set mechanics

    All of those things are present in Cyberpunk 2077 as well, I would not call those games similar anyway.

    combat looks like a huuuge improvement from new vegas but sadly rpg mechanics really don't translate well into the first-person perspective. i mean for example how he shot that sniper right in the head with a revolver (9:40) and the guy just shrugged it off. i don't know if that's just me but it really bothers me in first-person rpgs. also, it looks like people in this game run with that weird, unnatural manner just like in 3d fallout games which makes it really hard to aim. still, i wasn't all that interested after the teaser but after watching the gameplay, the game looks fun

    No romance/sex. Yep, that's what I thought as well. Another -1 pts for the game.

    It definitely plays like FO4. Even the crosshair is identical.

    Does this game even have a CC screen?

    And they dare to show the game play on XBox? Already started shilling for MS? Fuck'em.

    Immortal companions... -1 pts.

    Floating damage numbers... -1 pts.

    The gameplay video made me a little more hopefull than the trailer. Seeing that dialoage system feels so great.

    Every one knows that Mass Effect Andromeda invented Space Colonies and the concept of cryonic sleep for intergalactic travel, nobody can use those because Andromeda invented them. /s

    RPG-like dialogue system being the only redeeming feature is a reason to despair.

    I did get a little bit of a DA:O vibe from the gameplay footage. Possibly due to combat music and two companions.

    At this point I won't be surprised if there's no character customization in the game.

    Dynamic traits system? I like the sound of that, not just a checkbox to tick on creation but playing the game can give you new ones depending how bad or good you are.

    And from the Video I see the return of the "Stupid" dialogue options. Also, I have seen the dialogue choice go up to 5 at a time. Feels good.

    Well, then I'll just hope your judgement is flawed this time around. ;)
    Is @Norzan stated, I'll wait for actual gameplay.

    Great reply as to why sex scenes are needed in modern RPGs. I am totally on your side now, damn Obsidian for not making me a virtual girlfriend.

    Haven't played a single game where romance was handled like it should be. Most of the time it's "Hey, i just met you two days ago, let's fuck.".
