Not only does the anticipation for this game now starts earlier than it should. Meaning we now know it's coming and will have to wait even longer than if got the news from a proper annoucement trailer a few months from now. But now the suprise for their trailer is ruined.

It's set in Boston by the way. I know early leaks pointed in that direction but it's confirmed now by solide info we'd be better off not knowing.

Edit:

Man, some of guys are way more pissed at me than I'm pissed at that setting ''reveal''. Maybe putting the word spoiling in the thread title wasn't the smartest move with the general level of snark and knee jerk reactions on the internet.

To clarify my position I would say I'm more disappointed than angry. Because if Bethesda sticks with their MO on trailer releases and hype building for fallout 4 the actual announcement for the game will be as exiting as a wet paper bag. So we'll get a trailer that's all moody. It will make a big deal out of ''OH SHIT IT'S IN BOSTON!!!'' and we'll all go ''meh''. We shouldn't go ''meh'' at the annoucement of Fallout 4, it's fucking Fallout 4!

I'm just saying we traded in what could have been a cool surprise for some crappy headlines. I salute Giantbomb for not putting that on their front page.

So you're acting out by spoiling it for the rest of us? Thanks, buddy!

Someone just ruined my christmas. That someone was you!

I don't know what the big deal is....it's Boston, who cares that you now know. It could be bullshit as well.

He didn't do that at all.

On topic: I don't really see how this is much of a spoiler. I'm sure the trailers will spoil much, much more. Or maybe they won't. I don't really know how Bethesda handles their trailers.

This is considered a spoiler? Where it takes place? I'm a big spoiler stickler - I don't even like to watch movie trailers - but really, this? What the hell are you doing visiting video game news sites if this is the sort of thing that you consider a spoiler?

#7 Posted by Clonedzero (3719 posts) -

dude, i knew it would be set in boston when i was playing FO3. There's literally dozens of references in FO3 to the area around boston. There was an entire detailed long quest line about a robot android dude from boston. I mean where else would you set it? Has to be in america for fallout or all the themes are fucked. West coast would anger the old school fans too much. Boston is perfect and already referenced, they had it planned already.

I mean bethesda already stated they decided on doing the east coast for their fallout games to minimize the damage done to the original games canon. (phrased differently obviously).

Also did anyone really think FO4 WASN'T going to happen? I mean sure i expected a super vague announcement trailer at the VGX like most other people, but when that thing turned out to be a hoax i wasn't fooled into thinking FO4 wasn't happening. That'd be crazy.

And the location is not a god damn spoiler. WTF. I mean im pretty damn sensitive when it comes to spoilers and saying a game takes place in ______ is not a spoiler unless its a crazy twist at the end. Thats as stupid as complaining someone told you Bioshock Infinite takes place in a floating skycity. CUS NO SHIT.

#8 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (273 posts) -

Who gives a fuck? It's not like someone posted in-depth story information or anything. We've all known that a Fallout 4 is coming, this doesn't change that. And did anyone honestly not think that Boston was the setting? Am I the only one who thought that was super damn obvious?

A Fallout game taking place in the ruins of a major American city? Stop the presses, this is front-page news right here!

#10 Edited by Hunter5024 (5170 posts) -

You're mad because they spoiled something that would have been in the trailer?

#11 Posted by MetalBaofu (1266 posts) -

I get that some people try to avoid any and all spoiler type stuff, but I think this is as much of a spoiler as the fact that Mass Effect 4 will be space.

I hear it's gonna be set in the post-apocalypse.

I agree - this is ridiculous.

#17 Edited by Strife777 (1431 posts) -

Jeez, maybe people complaining about people complaining about spoilers are right.

Who cares!? That's something you would've known from the first trailer.

#18 Posted by CornBREDX (4454 posts) -

So what? We already knew this stuff.

We haven't played the game or even seen it yet. Just knowing it exists doesnt affect anything.

#19 Edited by AndrewB (7190 posts) -

We knew the setting to New Vegas (it's in the title) and Fallout 3 long before they were released, as well. Also, the news is still speculation, although speculation backed with mounting evidence. I guess that's all I have to say, since I'm not sure where there's room for anger.

#20 Posted by Devil240Z (3052 posts) -

A post apocalyptic game set in a post apocalyptic wasteland. BIG SPOILER.

#21 Posted by VeggiesBro (113 posts) -

I have to agree with @kcin here. If you consider this a spoiler you probably should stay away from video games news sites.

#22 Posted by alwaysbebombing (1278 posts) -

Oh man, that's awesome! I love Boston.

#23 Posted by RollingZeppelin (1854 posts) -

Did this really need to be a thread? There is literally 0 discussion value here. I think you're being silly for thinking the location of the game is a spoiler. Oh no, something you'll know more than a year before you even put the disc in was revealed to you a couple months early, all enjoyment of the game is OVER.

#24 Edited by Canteu (2814 posts) -

It is set after the nuclear apocalypse? I bet it's set after the nuclear apocalypse.

#25 Edited by chrissedoff (2041 posts) -

They telegraphed the setting with a character in Fallout 3.

#26 Posted by Dot (163 posts) -

While I do think it would have pretty cool to find this out in a trailer, It's really not a big deal.

#27 Posted by Quarters (1547 posts) -

Man, if this is considered spoiler material, things are going to start getting rough in pop culture.

#28 Posted by Zella (620 posts) -

As @clonedzero said, all throughout Fallout 3 it is heavily implied that Boston will be a future setting. Even if it wasn't implied so heavily it would still be a very logical assumption to make as it is a important place in the lore. Besides it's not like impacts the experience of searching through the post apocalyptic ruins at all.

Also I don't think it would be a spoiler even by definition as the setting of the game is something that once the game is announced will be open to everyone. It's not like it is being hidden, the game just hasn't been announced yet.

That's not how you pronounce Bwostun.

#30 Posted by maverick1 (87 posts) -

hmmm doesn't sound like much of a spoiler.

#31 Posted by DonChipotle (2655 posts) -

If Bethesda makes it it doesn't matter where the setting is because it will be boring as shit anyway.

#32 Posted by JayEH (512 posts) -

Who cares? How did this spoil it for you. It's just a setting and its been all but confirmed to be there for like a year.

#33 Posted by WesleyWyndam (105 posts) -

This game has vaults in it.

#34 Posted by MarvinPontiac (100 posts) -

I thought for sure Fallout 4 would finally be set in Feudal Japan where you play as a ninja.

#35 Edited by afabs515 (832 posts) -

Like where else would it have been set? How many interesting major cities are there in America? The only other big contender in my mind was NYC, but I can't see that happening for some reason.

EDIT: As a side note, since New Vegas had a few Persona voice actors in it, what are the odds they get Labrys' voice actress in this on account of her Boston accent?

You'll be okay. We're still here for you.

To be fair, Las Vegas is not really a major American city.

From a cultural point of view it is.

I second this. I don't see why this is such a big issue. We all expected Massachusetts, and really no information has been given except what we already know about the universe itself. Most of what we could suspect was put into view on thesurvivor2299.com. It might have been a hoax but it just centralized all of the information available about MA.

It's really not though. Hell, San Fransisco (which was in Fallout 2 I think?) only has 500k people (technically, though the bay area far outstrips the LV metro area), but it has history. Las Vegas's claim to fame is a bunch of casinos and it's in the desert. In the context of Fallout it absolutely made sense that LV was as big as it was but in real life? nah.

I mean, I loved New Vegas and all but Las Vegas was definitely the lesser of the main cities (LA, SF, Washington D.C. and now apparently boston).

Man i might as well not even play it since we know its gonna be in Boston

In other news, Call of Duty is spoiled for the 10th straight year. You shoot people in it and there is multiplayer.

Thanks Obama

Las Vegas is easily the nation's most recognizable resort city.

Did you guys know Samurai Gunn came out today??? I would have discovered this on my own in my private time were it not for those pesky journalists putting that massive spoiler right in the headline on the front page! JEEZ!!! Let me sign in to Steam one day and, having a vague recollection of this game, struggle with remembering its name (Search: Samurai...something. Samurai Kill? No...Samurai, uh...Samurai Gun? OH Samurai GUNN!) discover that it, in fact, came out on this day, which, knowing me, will have been two weeks ago by the time I pursue it. What a great twist that would have been! But it's been utterly SPOILED by Giant Bomb and Co. who just can't WAIT to blab about it to everyone they see!! THANKS A LOT!!!!

#50 Edited by iceman228433 (496 posts) -

dude if you played Fallout 3 you knew what the setting was going to be anyways, I don't understand the point.
