I hope this gets a PS4 release. I'll only be getting 1/4 of the worth without the option for mods, but even with mods FO3 was decent dumb fun, and if that trailer is in-game it's going to be a great-looking game. I really really like the softer look they got going on.

The one thing I am legit excited about is that it looks like there'll be less of the cargo cult fanfic poo poo that made fallout 3 so bad.

I'm willing to bet it is just generic voice lines, not so much as a fully voiced guy/girl or whatever, ie. PlayerVoiceMaleAfrican, PlayerVoiceMaleCaucasian, PlayerVoiceFemaleAfrican, etc.

The leaked audition script says otherwise. It has the player VA do both the War Never Changes speech and a sample quest dialogue. It also said they were just looking for one male and one female voice.

I'm really confused as to why they're making a voiced protagonist. Feels like a decision made by the executives than something Bethesda came up with by themselves.

Also holy moly, Bethesda, make some new animations. That running animation was lifted straight from Skyrim and it still sucks.

Yeah, if I had to compile a list of poo poo that no one asked for or particularly wanted out of a Bethasda game; 'voiced protagonist' would probably be at the top. Considering their record with most characters it wouldn't even be playing to their strengths. With any luck it's just for the trailer, or at the very least they have a female voice option too.

Skyrim was surprisingly popular with women who didn't usually play games of the type becasue it a)was fairly accessible and b)wasn't super heavily marketed towards an adolescent 'hey boobs/blood' male audience, with creating the character that represented you (or your cat/lizard alter ego) not having any effect on the gameplay. for all of skyrim's myriad flaws it was a nice (if inadvertent) boon.

I need to pay more attention.

I'll change my wish then to hoping it runs well on PS4. The Witcher 3 runs beautifully while looking very nice, and I hope Bethesda manages the same feat.

Given how awful they wrote the main character in FO3 (the available dialogue options in the main story) I'm actually kind of excited to see the new depths of terrible writing now that they're having the main character voiced.

make so that stealing anything, or opening any owned container, immediately makes all guards in all towns in the entire game aggro you, and they will just start running for miles to tell you PUT THAT BACK THIEF

at any point in the game, no matter what you were doing, a huddle of guards from across the map will bust into the scene to tell you PUT THAT BACK THIEF.

it'd be baller if this could even interrupt scripted events or cutscenes or w/e

The protagonist is a cryogenically frozen pre-war soldier. That was in the VA audition sides too. Same dude turns up at the top of page 1 as concept art.

Fallout 2 had two gag characters based around how dumb a premise this is so obvs they had to do it for reals.

Fallout 4 is going to turn out to be all a dream world created by a man that could not cope when his baby died. He put a plastic baby doll in the crib and pretends it's his kid, and then the dog from Ghosts infiltrates his dreams and has to pull him out.

Here's a portion of that 4K picture from the OP and they are using all over the Internet. I stole it from the GBS Fallout 4 thread.


Bethesda was tired of all the developers making pre rendered real time trailers so they made all the promotional material from the worst platform,The Xbone One.

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.

Because it's a lazy way of giving the protagonist pathos and ignorance of the setting, but the necessarily brief glimpse we get of his life before the story proper starts undercuts our ability to care about what he's nominally lost.
