(Multi) Fallout 4
  • I've never heard of this title, is it indie?
  • westsw, it could be indie. I've heard the guys who write the code are hacks and the graphics look pretty ass for this gen, but it's getting good press regardless.

    I'm with GEFM. I'll probably pick it up near release unless it turns out to be a pile of bugs and errors masquerading as a game.
  • I'll wait until the English version with all the DLC is available on Amazon
  • Yeah, really bad glitches are about the only thing that could really bum me out. Some crap is gonna happen cuz... Bethesda. I am not too worried cuz Skyrim certainly ran better than either Fallout. I still remember getting trapped on flat ground in the Vegas game.
  • I watched some of the stream last night, and while it was early in the game and he was mainly just running about the wasteland killing things, it was running fast and smooth. Granted Fallout usually waits until later in the game before it starts messing with your sanity but it still looked promising. Hopefully we can have a half decent story this time too.
  • I don't understand this

    Am I one of the few people in the world who doesn't want to run Forrest run Gump my way around a gigantic open world full of vast expanses of nothing or bloody radio towers? People are whining about how small this is compared to games like Just Cause 2 but did anyone actually enjoy walking all over that huge ass map? One of the main turn offs for me with these sandbox games these days is how huge the maps are getting and how full of irrelevant repetitive shitty mini-quests they are becoming (Just Cause, Far Cry, Ass Creed, etc etc). A more reasonable size with more closely packed things to do sounds good to me.

  • I can't wait for Fallout 4 and I've got some time booked off to play it too.
  • Cohh Carnage is streaming the main story (with permission from Bethesda) right now and yeah, the game looks pretty friggin awesome. He is playing on PC though so I'm still going to wait for performance reports for the PS4, but everything I've seen in the stream (after 4 hours or so) looks excellent. There've been a few bugs, like sudden dumps to the desktop and subtitles not working, but hey, it's Bethesda. I'm all but sold.

    Westsw is going to need a change of underpants.

  • I might have already exhausted myself in anticipation. I am just a bad date.

    No wait, still excited.

    Me so crafty baby. Me so crafty. Me make guns long time.
  • Looks like it's chock full of bugs, but from what I've heard it's great, so.
  • That sentence has been uttered about every Bethesda game.
  • That is why i wait until it patched, first let the fanboys stress test the game for free!
  • Amazon Reviews trololol.

    Some dude by the name of 1andonly gave Fallout 4 this cracking 1 star review:

    Was so excited to play the second most popular game of the year (next to call of duty 12 of course), and was thrilled when bethesda sent me 4 copies of the game to see what I thought. First off, before I go any further a little history of this "series":

    Fallout is a series that absolutely nobody played besides the third. Talk about legendary!

    Anyway on to the review: You play as nameless man (or woman) number 238,485 on your journey to escape a vault. Don't worry, it gets more riveting: When you finally escape you find yourself in modern day Detroit and it is up to you to find a bunch of junk such as combs, empty bottles, and space ship fuel to trade with other moronic people from Detroit in your efforts to escape. You get chased by lots of demons, cockroaches, and people who look like they escaped from a sewage treatment pond.

    Overall i think they really nailed the city of Detroit down and in my experience this is what happens on a normal Wednesday, so i give the developers props for that.

    Sadly the game clocks in at about 2 FPS, and it took about 38 hours just to make my character because the game runs like a normal bethesda game on playstation runs. Gotta love just how advanced todays consoles are!!

    Also the graphics look somewhat better than an average NES game, although most NES games look much better.

    Save your money and buy Call of duty 12, which is much, much better on every single level.

    0/6 stars

    Also at one point you have to fly to the Planet Saturn to meet up with Brad Pitt

    Enjoy!
  • Sadly, real life just opened up with both barrels on me. Work is work, family in town, and the tots are a viral wonderland. I will not be playing this, or anything, very much this week. The opening was extremely similar to 3, as was everything else. Already heard the some of the same voice actors. The faces are prettier, but still have eerie dead doll eyes. I find all this reassuring like Hershey chocolate. You know exactly what you are getting. More bigger Fallout 3 would make me very happy. Still savoring the expectation.
  • Life has a habit of pulling some infuriating cock blocks on you at times. Pretend you have Ebola or something and take advantage of the week in quarantine.

    It's looking like I might be in a similar situation around Dark Souls 3 launch.
  • Put about 6 hours in and so far so good. The only time I had severe frame rate drop (ps4) was exiting the vault when I tried to remake my characters face. The shooting mechanics are satisfying and the graphics are actually pretty good considering what this game is. My only real gripe with the game is the shitty user interface, it's incredibly hard to navigate and hard to see what the hell is going on. Modding weapons and armor is a fucking nightmare for me right now because of this, but it could just be my noob blood rising up. The dialogue is pretty enjoyable, but it starts to drag sometimes. I feel like a lot of my playtime is just listening to people talk at this point.
  • Played a little more. Shooting is the best I have seen in a Bethesda game. That is faint praise. They clearly want you to use and make guns for real time use because VATS is slomo, not frozen. That critter is still coming at you and you need to make some decisions. I bet I will like that in time.
  • Lots of disappointment for me, one could argue I should have known I was getting a typical Bethesda turd - but it has been a long time since I had played FO3, and New Vegas fixed a ton of issues I had. Yet FO3, even on a new gen of console hardware seems content to languish and offer up what feels like a VERY last gen experience and I'm full of disappointment so far.

Howdy, Stranger!
