The new open world RPG from Bethesda Game Studios: Fallout 4, releasing on PS4, Xbone and PC. Set in Boston, you are a a pre-war guy or gal who descends into Vault 111 when the bombs fall and through a series of shenanigans awaken 200 years later in, well, what's left. Flying in the face of games appearing at E3 multiple times in a row Fallout 4 will be hitting shelves this year, on the 10th November 2015. Keep your schedule clear!

For the first time in a Bethesda game your character is voiced and conversations appear to have adopted an (optional) shot/reverse shot style found in conventional 3D RPGs. Lord only knows what unholy bugs may result.

Customization appears to be the name of the game; creating your character looks easier than ever with them dispensing with sliders in favour of directly selecting parts of your character's face to mess around with, you can customize your power armour, weapons and even build your own little hamlet. In the vein of customization modding is again fully supported for PC, with those same mods able to be transferred over to the Xbone version!!!!!!! The creation kit mod tools will be coming in very early 2016 with the xbone compatibility soon after.

Combat and graphics both appear much improved with more fluid animations, though it looks like skills have been deprecated, possibly in favour of perks. It remains to be seen whether this is a good idea. Power Armour is finally the ridiculous exoskeleton it should be; one hopes this isn't just for scripted cutscenes. A good deal of the ropiness of Fallout 3 appears to have been expunged, hopefully not replaced by the blandness of Skyrim. Anyway, pretty pictures time.

Marvel at the graphics! Complain about the graphics! Whine about theoretical and inevitable bad mechanical decisions! It's all here! It's all queer! Get used to it!

It looks promising that there's no ugly color filter in the trailer, that green poo poo gave me a literal headache in 3. Hopefully we get some nicer faces in this one, but it looks like it's still gonna be Gamebryo so I'm not getting my hopes up.

I'm "bananas" for mods showing that I never do anything beyond the minimum in video games!

Can I choose between dating a rapist redhead ghoul or an uptight raven-haired super mutant? Bethesda has a lot they have to compete with in terms of dating simulators.

9.—The result in war is never absolute.
Lastly, even the final decision of a whole war is not always to be regarded as absolute. The conquered state often sees in it only a passing evil, which may be repaired in after times by means of political combinations. How much this also must modify the degree of tension and the vigour of the efforts made is evident in itself.

It's the arrogance of the subtext: The province of human affairs is a field best left to dilettantes' extraordinary gift for the feigning of paralysis. For saying nothing at all. For daydreams of black-tie affairs at Rideau Hall. An acceptance speech. Sustained applause.

I can already see the " MAH FAMILY" stupid storyline from here

Whining about whining is the stupidest whining.

The teaser was super bad tho and the game will probably be worse.

Goons will be goons and Bethesda will be Bethesda. Honest, frank discussion will take place amid, and eventually replace, the apocalyptic 7 stages of grief that accompany the reveal of a dece trailer for a game that will realistically be at least pretty good. OP wise - pragmatically speaking we know almost nothing about the game and while I've heard some rumblings about a leaked audition script thing I'm not reading that or putting any info from it in there.
