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.

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 think most games look better that way, or at least I've always been really disappointed every time I take a steam screenshot of something I thought was really cool at the time and look at it later.

With Bethesda games I've found that you can install a bunch of graphics mods and take some great screenshots of lovely vistas and up close in the right lighting, but in motion somewhat taken out of the game by weird animation or someone glitching into a wall, shadows freaking out etc. Then again these are all planned beauty shots anyway so we'll have to wait for actual gameplay to be sure.

I'm optimistic about the gunplay at least, if only because bows in skyrim were pretty dece to use, and ranged weapons are probably easier to make look good compared to janky melee flailing.

So fallout Oblivion and Fallout 3 were made with the Gamebryo engine, and it's bad at animations and it was already too old when 3 came out, etc etc.. So then Skryim comes out with a new engine, apparently called the Creation Engine, and it looks way better, especially in animations, and all my friends have spent years saying "can't wait for Fallout in the Skyrim engine".

So why does this trailer look like it was made in the Gamebryo engine? I can't be, it just can't be.

Except that This page suggests that yes I'm not crazy and they're going to release a gamebryo engine in 2015. What? Why? What FPS company ever has gone through the trouble of making a new game engine, then go back and release their next game in the previous generations engine? gently caress, gently caress.

I mean, gently caress, I'll play it, and I'll have a good time but...but drat Bethesda, really?

Edit - I mean really I just wanted Bethesda to do the heavy lifting on a Creation Engine fallout so that then the New Vegas guys could make a game from it.

gamebryo isn't necessarily bad in itself; most of the issues people blame on it can be laid squarely at the door of bethesda's ropey programming, animation work and QA testing. rest assured that if they moved to a new engine it'd likely be worse, and the wait between games would be longer. also creation engine is gamebryo numbnuts!

to skyrim's credit the movement feels a lot better than fo3 (i.e. not as horrible and floaty) and the game as a whole is far more stable, even when loaded down with 100 4K textured horse dong mods. if it continues the trajectory from fo3 to skyrim it could maybe even feel... dare i say it... dece? there's bound to be somem under the hood improvements at any rate to take advantage of the new consoles

Yea the trailer looks like poo poo, the mans face in trailer looks like poo poo. I wonder if its some limited because it was designed for last gen consoles thing or what. I wonder if its an issue of game being in development for too long. That might also suggest why its in Gamebryo and not the engine Skyrim was in which was just an updated Gamebryo anyways wasn't it?

The trailer looks good overall; the main issue graphically is how lowres and flat everything looks up close. Most noticeable on the dog.

Jack B Nimble posted:

Well, that is actually reassuring. Also, It seemed like the animations for the for the mutants coming at your in the super market were way better than the pre war evacuation. I mean, really, it's the pre war scenes that look bad. The shots of the main game world are actually awesome - and the lighting and colors look GREAT.

i'd call it less reassuring since they have a pretty poor track record with adding polish that literally everyone wants. they did add diagonal running animations in skyrim though so the flame of hope still burns within me

Trailer looks great. But I long for the day when Bethesda finds a solution for this:
"Oh hey, You've reached the end of the starting dungeon! Look at that bright awesome world outside. Now, you TECHNICALLY can walk off in any direction and kiiinnnnd of start your own adventure... after you stop at the new guy town/only town in miles, and do several quest. "

I want to deal with everything in the starting area, and then be dumped out into the world with three or more small towns in every direction around me that I can randomly stumble on after having explored for a bit, that feel different from each other, and that help push me in entirely different directions than the other towns.

well you literally can just gently caress off and do your own thing in any bethesda game the moment you finish the prologue. that being said in FO3 there was kind of a dearth of quest hubs so megaton was pushed much more heavily than in their other games. a more directed experience which gradually directs you to new parts of the map and different quest hubs is present in new vegas though

Raygereio posted:

It is. There's zero question about this. Skyrim's Creation engine reused code from Bethesda previous engine. And yeah it is common practice. No one in their right mind throws away old code and start wasting time & resources re´nventing the wheel after all.

Gamebryo - not Bethesda's creation, but the thing that you can license - indeed not bad. It's actually decent. Note that Gamebryo is often referred to as a game engine (pretty sure it's also marketted as such), but it's really not. It's a suite of code libraries that's not much more then a graphics renderer.
The developer still needs to add all of the other stuff that goes into a game engine like AI, animation, gameplay logic, etc, etc. If you take the game engine that was used for Oblivion, then Gamebryo is in there somewhere doing its thing, but it's burried under layers and layers of Bethesda's own wonky spaghetti code.
For some dumb reason probably related to licencing a lot of game engines that use Gamebryo are called "Gamebryo" as well which has resulted in a lot of confusion on the Internet (Oblivion, Civ4, Playboy: The Mansion and Epic Mickey don't all use the same engine) and people blaming Gamebryo for the problems Bethesda's lovely QA and wonky spaghetti code caused.

I have some issues with the composition of the trailer; namely that it feels like 4 separate, good trailers mashed together to make a single one that's mediocre in composition.

You could split it up into 'zoom away from a tv to reveal a nuclear wasteland,' 'dog pokes around a blown out town with flashbacks', 'newscaster ron perlman announces the end of the world then wham line at the end' and 'game environment sizzle reel'.

As it stands the only real impact the TV thing has is 'oh cool it's like they're zooming away from the screen on the website, except not really cos it's a seperate youtube video.' It also doesn't really have any impact because it's a) been done too many times and is old as balls; children born the year fallout 1 came out with its baller intro are going to university this year. get some original ideas. b) the whole point of the fallout 1 intro was the juxtaposition between the happy, faintly ominous retrofuturistic newsreel and the nuclear wasteland. that being said it's probably not what they were going for so whatever; kind of a cynical use of iconography though.

Newscaster ron perlman would have had more of an impact is the whamline was at the end of the trailer. It's been done before but that's for a reason. Or maybe just don't try and cram it in there.

Dog trailer would have been pretty cool but it's broken up by the other crap as it is which kind of ruins any impact.

Sizzle reel has a utilitarian appeal to it which I as a graphics complainer appreciate but it doesn't really have any place in a trailer that's trying to have some measure of narrative impact.

I'm trying to think back on the games i've played with the unreal engine. Do any of the UE games handle really long draw distances very well? How many UE games have been set in an open world environment similar to FNV or Skyrim?

In thinking back to the UE games I've played most of them have fairly short draw distances and focus on smaller, but more cluttered maps. It'd be great for indoors but i don't know how great it'd be when outside.

Likewise, I don't recall ever trying to mod any UE games. I'm sure it's doable I'm just wondering, in terms of ease-of-modding how games made with UE4 compare to the Creation Kit.

Yeah I can't recally playing an unreal engine game that wasn't pretty much level-based. I'm sure streaming open worlds can be done, but it's not really what it's meant for. Modding UE depends if you ahve the tools I think; games like unreal tournament ship with a map editor but most are pretty much impenetrable. You can hack the asset files to do poo poo like replacing textures and use cheat engine but nothing really close to anything like the plugin system bethesda uses.

I wish Bethesda would do what Obsidian did and take fan opinions into account. They stopped talking to their fans after Oblivion rose up a shitstorm on their forums.

That's for making games from scratch though, not modding and tweaking existing ones. Most games won't let you just load their files up in the unreal editor and change poo poo, and most developers aren't willing or able to hand over a good portion of their toolchain to modders.

I always felt 3 had better atmosphere and NV had better gameplay. But atmosphere doesn't make up for a lack of polished or additional mechanics.

Also NV's overworld is kind of desolate. Not in an end-of-the-world nuclear wasteland way, but in a "wow there's a whole lot of nothing here" way compared to 3. And also the random events in 3 made the wasteland feel a bit more alive. Granted 3 copied and pasted a lot of things.

FO3 was made by a dev whose bread and butter is first person open world games. That's literally all they've done for like 20 years - they know how to implement a setting even if they're sometimes at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it.

Also I was pretty surprised reading that wiki that said FO3 only had 17 full on sidequests, but thinking about it that seems pretty accurate. It's nice that the minor stuff that doesn't require you to trek across the wasteland isn't popping up all over your screen and journal tho

100% truth

I was going to give the video a shot because sometimes they can be at least interesting enough to have on the background, but the very first thing this guys wants is to make the game harder by making aiming shittier.

gently caress that, I just turned it off. Aim and hit chance should not be based on skills in games like this. Morrowind's greatest fault is the god drat miss chance. Just have the skill be tied to damage and speed things. Missing for reasons that aren't in your control is not fun at all.

On one hand you have to make stats actually matter, but then again having bullets magically spray out at a 45 degree angle if you have low skill is kind of lame in a game where you aim manually. I'm comfortable having your guns skill be abstracted enough to affect how much damage you actually do with bullets despite it making no real sense, but accuracy wise it should only really affect your accuracy in VATS where the whole act of shooting is completely abstracted. It's a delicate balancing act but I'm comfortable having guns affect your reload speed and associated actuons if the animations are less obviously fast forwarded/slowed down than the earlier games. Peripheral actions like repairing and crafting should be tied to it as well.

The guy talks about crafting is interesting to talk about but not the aspects he chooses to mention. I don't think I crafted a single thing in FO3 because there was simply no incentive to pick up junk beyond the few weapons you could craft and selling poo poo to break any notion of fiduciary scarcity slightly quicker. I crafted a few thiungs in skyrim (mostly modded armours that I couldn't get any other way) but it was still a menu-driven snoozefest that was safely ignored. If they want me to craft, make it less of an afterthought and work it into the game at a deeper level. Make junk items able to be dismantled or have lots of different uses, allow you to craft items on the fly that it'd make sense for you to be able to, don't tie all crafting to a dedicated skill that I'll pass over because there's more interesting skills - i.e. if I'm good with guns I should be at least decent at crafting guns. Basically don't make me skill up in what is pretty much one of the most boring skills in any game to do crafting and make it actually useful and necessary. Maybe even interesting.

Alll that being said I think I specialized in repair at least once during my time with NV just becasue weapon durability was A Thing and the perk that alloowed you to repair any weapon with any weapon that was half similar was really useful. They should make that system deeper since I'd say an important part of a post-apoc game is the sense that everything's patched together and gradually falling apart.

I agree with him about the factions though. SOme of the most entertaining poo poo in these games is watching the different systems interact, and even when they gently caress up (like in oblivion where the beggars who are scripted to acquire food end up stealing it and are cut down by the guards) it's fun.

For mods, it's most likely a done deal that Bethesda will allow paid mods, but hopefully it's going to be done in a more intelligent fashion vs Skyrim attempt.

If they do it right and then allow curated stuff to make it over to the consoles, that would be a very smart thing for Bethesda... However I am not sure how likely such a thing would be.

i think project nevada does this in NV and there's defo an equivalent for 3. same with sprinting (which is more janky than the bullet time but works how you'd expect w/r/t using action points)
