I know this is going to be an ugly, broken, janky game with stilted diagloue but at the same time, all Fallout games have been, same with Skyrim

still fun

Everyone in this thread's gonna buy it and have over 4000 hours play time, like they did with Oblivion, Fallout 3, New Vegas and Skyrim, the graphics aren't the best but they are far from terrible, infact, graphics are the last thing I'd give a poo poo about in Fallout.
All I want is to wear future robot armour and shoot lasers at mutated dudes/shopkeepers/dogs, everything else is secondary.

yes but we can still make fun of the game

Guaranteed consoles are the lead platform as has been the case with every Bethesda game so if the effects get the axe there, they're gone on PC too.

thats pretty much now how that works tho

they just pretty much disable the effects and questions about "which version looks the best" get ignored and then the PC version looks way better

Nobody is excited about the new pop culture references?
Predictions:

- The wrecking ball from Miley Cyrus video and some guy talks about a ghoul that lost her jaw so she always has her tongue sticking out.
- The Boston Commonwealth has one dude who argues that there's no way the bandits can get through their wall, b/c their stolen jet fuel doesn't melt steel beams
- Pepe the frog scrawled on a wall
- A unique set of power armor colored like Iron Man
- When you get dogmeat the previous owner says "so dog much fallout wow" and is retarded from nuclear fallout
- probably something from Mad Max

same but IRL unironically agreed

they could do a quest where you try to investigate a murder and you bring a picture around to a bunch of people in a town, all of whom speculate on who the killer could be and then based on the (lack of) evidence you lead a hysterical mob to kill the murderer

Agreed. I think for a lot of people NV was too far into the future setting-wise. I think a lot of players wanted Fallout's setting to be in the early post-apocalyptic days, as opposed to 200 years in the future. Fallout 3's art direction and map design made it feel like the bombs fell recently. Which, obviously, was at odds with the entire Fallout lore.

this was honestly the worst part of fallout 3

if its 200 years in the future yes things should be a wreck but there shouldn't be scraps from the war just piled like they were when the bombs dropped right in the middle of the road

are you gonna be an eternal highlander who survived a nuclear apocalypse just to go out into the wasteland to hunt other highlanders for the secret of true immortality

given that they had some like "memory lane" or whatever store i have a feeling you'll be able to go into simulations ala that 50s wonderland that got invaded by Chinese commies

I would love for there to be a lot of quests like that

I preferred 3's setting to New Vegas. Everything in the Capital Wasteland felt like it was in a state of flux, with people huddled into poisoned, bombed-out towns and rotting, mirelurk-infested aircraft carriers because those places only might kill you when what's outside definitely will. New Vegas by comparison just felt a little bit too settled and safe. Nonchalantly wandering off into the hills to shoot varmints should be a death sentence, not a training mission.

I know that some level of normality should have resumed ~200 years after the bombs, but that doesn't mean it makes for a better game.

i like that too actually i just would have liked to see a bit more industry on behalf of people i guess, which i felt like new vegas had

Bizarre because it's really the opposite. I mean the fact that FO3 is good for probably one playthrough when I went through NV four times (since my computer had to be reformatted or replaced between DLCs so I had to replay to get to them).

It's not just the setting, New Vegas is better in every other way as well.

thats true except for the DLC with like the neck explosive thing

that one was bad

They wont be need to take cues from New Vegas. I think they also need to take cues from The Witcher and really any sort of action oriented RPG put out between New Vegas and now.
