I'd also love to see Obsidian work on this, but I think after Bethesda screwed them out of a bonus over one point on a Metacritic score, the chances are pretty low. They're busy finishing South Park and having fun working on Wasteland 2 and their own Planescape sequel. Why the hell would they want to go back to work for Bethesda?

uh, I don't think they did; they had to have known about it, it would've been in the contract.

I just wanted to say that 4allout is the stupidest thing I have read, possibly ever.

you're right it should say F4llout

OT: The skyrim engine seemed fine to me, and I played on a PS3. I should really open up my copy of Fallout 3 and see what the fuzz is all about

I'd rather Bestheda do something else because Fallout 3, when compared to New Vegas, didn't feel like a traditional fallout game. Fallout 3 had more atmosphere because it hit you over the head with it every five seconds. New Vegas had more humor to it, had a better scale, was more fleshed out, and stayed inline with the previous narratives.

If they do it in Boston I'd be interesting if you're a android made by the Institute and sent out into the world for some mission. That way you get the traditional 'stranger in a strange land' theme, and perhaps create a unique Perks system and what not. Hell, atleast VATS would make more sense with a Robot.

@Animasta: You might think sticking that close to a contract is good Business, but if it had been me, I might not go around badmouthing Bethesda about it, but I would never work with them again unless I absolutely had to.

Edit: I think it would have been much better business if Bethesda said, "You guys at Obsidian got so damn close to the mark, you made a great game and half the reason you didn't get over 85 is our shitty, buggy, outdated engine, so you really deserve the bonus anyway."

WHO'S READY FOR SOME BAD WRITING!?!?!

I'm ready to not make assumptions before the game is even announced. And I don't mind the writing in Bethesda games at all. Skyrim had some really great side quests. Plus the writing is secondary to the world in these games.

Indeed. I've been watching Husky Starcraft's playthrough of Fallout 1 recently and am impressed how the cinematic close up shots of the important NPC's hold up. I want to play a Fallout where everything is done in that style. Would be amazing.

uhm, no way.

I like the atmosphere stuff as much as the next person but why would I care if all the writing is crap (and it was in fallout 3, and most of skyrim)

I hate you for that title.

F4llout.

Exploration is the main draw, of course, but having played a Fallout with fantastic writing now, it'll be hard to go back to Bethesda's rendition.

Fallout 4, a god sim that consists of people in relationships falling out with other people, making up and then falling out again, getting caught in a forever looping rollercoaster ride of social degredation.

How can Threedog return when I blew him the fuck up with the fatman the first time I met him?

#66 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2295 posts) -

Oh man I hope Bethesda make a Fallout 4 announcement soon, I loved Fallout 3 and even New Vegas despite it's shortcomings. Either they announce before E3 without specifying platforms or they get on stage at Microsoft or Sony's press conference and announce its next gen plans then.

@Branthog you and the first poster are game snobs. The sky rim engine is awesome.

I guess the Creation Engine is awesome if you love hilarious clipping bugs, poor scalability with lower-end hardware, and having to manually set quest states to progress.

I hope they don't substitute numbers for letters in the name as the thread title implies. From my experience, anything whether it be a TV show, movie, music album, or a video game always turns out shitty whenever numbers are substituted for letters in the name.

Remember how when Fallout 3 came out lots of people used the "Oblivion with guns" description--and lots of the time that was said semi-derisively? Consider now if someone says Fallout 4 will be "Skyrim with guns". I'm completely on board with that!

A new Fallout game, featuring Three Dog as a character you can interact with, will be an instant buy for me. I loved Fallout 3, and all of it's DLC.

#75 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

I wont buy it if it's called 4allout. I dont care how good it is

#76 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2543 posts) -

You mean so broken on the PS3 that they can't even release the majority of the DLC for that version of the game?

#79 Posted by MiniPato (2752 posts) -

I am in agreement that your proposed title is terrible. F4llout was the obvious one, and yet somehow you missed that one and somehow came up with something even worse.

It would be cool if Bethesda developed the game and brought in Chris Avellone as either lead writer or writing consultant. Fallout 3's atmosphere combined with New Vegas' roleplaying would make an excellent game.

A thousand times this,it would be the dream game Fallout for me,but of course it will never happen I'm sure Avellone and Sawyer are too busy with other things,and Bethesda would just plain not care about them.I just wish Bethesda would hire new writing talent,like the story telling in Fallout 3 and New Vegas is a pretty big noticable leap.Especially in terms of character development and player choice in missions.And less of the Bethesda trademark "Good VS Evil" archetype,they shove in everything.

I could do Fallout again. I didn't enjoy New Vegas as much as Fallout 3..but I think I might have been just tired of it.

Ah hopefully not. Here's hoping the PS4 new architecture puts and end to broken Bethesda releases on the Playstation.
#85 Posted by Zrais (148 posts) -

I hope this is the last time we see it called "4allout". Thats just awful.

#86 Edited by Itwastuesday (984 posts) -

in this game you'll probably meet all of the founding fathers' robot cyborg bodies and also the enclave and brotherhood of steel will show up for some reason

also the ps3 version will probably be broken
