Hope it looks better than it did at first. 
 
I'm on the fence when it comes to this game. I loved Fallout 3, but I'm not sure if I really want any more of it.

Very cautiously optimistic about this. I really couldn't care less about a game's graphics as long as it's fun to play and/or has a compelling story, but the art direction looks good.

Posted by Vinchenzo

There is no art direction. The game looks like shit.

So I guess it's fifties, eh?

Looks like they still didnt fix the terrible character animations :( Atleast back in morrowind, they were so bad it was good.

I really want Fallout:  New Vegas.  Updated graphics would be nice, but I can cope with this.

Posted by Doctorchimp

Goddamn it Obsidian... 
 
I'm buying New Vegas first day but just so you know...I'll be sighing the entire time in doubt until I get home to play it.

Well, there's colour this time around. I guess that's something.

I guess looking like a 2003 xbox 1 game is "art direction"

Looks like a cheap expansion pack. This is a full-length game?

Posted by JoeyRavn

I pre-ordered this three months ago. And I'm still ~20 days away from it. It's driving me fucking nuts, I say.

something feels really off about this game. Anyone else have that feeling?  
I can not put my finger on what it is. 

Posted by jorbear

Lol. What's with all the hate on this game? It looks great, and since when did Fallout 3 look good? This game doesn't need to look good to actually be good.

Okay, I'm going to say that the engine they're working is sure is showing its age, but that doesn't mean the game looks bad by any stretch of the imagination. I love what they've done with it. It's not a drastic departure from Fallout 3, but that's what keeps it feeling like a game from the same series. The Fallout universe has its own art style that shouldn't be deviated from too far. 
  
I also thought that Fallout 3 looked fantastic, minus the animations - and particularly the (lack of) movement animations. While people were complaining that it was almost too drab and brown, I was thinking that that's what a bleak apocalyptic world is supposed to look like.

I think it looks like it's gonna be PHENOMENAL.
 
The wait is killing me.

Posted by DaemonBlack

Pumped for this game but I dont know if I like all the color. I guess I'm more of a gray and brown sort of person.

Posted by NTM

That's not what I call new art really. Overall I'm not excited for this game.
Posted by Zzzleepy

I don't love Fallout 3, I think it's a good but flawed game. I think this will be very much he same... BUT with a better story, and thus greatly more rewarding to me at least.

Posted by Gooddoggy

I'm really excited about this.  Something about it just feels more like the old Fallouts.  I loved Fallout 3, but I think they spent more time hammering home the whole pre-war social satire/alternate future-history stuff.  The old Fallouts felt more like they were in their own after-the-bomb world.

Argh! The Geckos are back... Those guys were a pain in the beginning of Fallout 2.

I hear they can save you a ton on car insurance though.

I'm excited to play what is hopefully the LAST GAME BETHESDA (or Obsidian) EVER MAKES ON THE GAMEBRYO ENGINE. 
 
Jesus christ, the animations are so fucking terrible, they were dated in 2006 when Oblivion came out. 
 
I will play stupid amounts of this game, but the animations and graphics of that engine need to be updated, or they need to use something else.

Posted by Zanny
@dvorak: Well if I remember correctly Bethesda now has exclusive rights to id-Tech 5 or Rage engine. So here's hoping.  Though I'm not sure a better engine would fix some of the "graphical issues" the games have had.
Posted by crusader8463

Dang, I love the idea of a big open world post apocalyptic game, but this just looks like more of the same horrible that was in Fallout 3. Oh well. Maybe Fallout 4 will be good.

Posted by AuthenticM

What is really hyping me is the fact that the original Fallout guys are working on this.

Posted by MasterTom

ye... not too excited 'bout this. FO3 didn't do it for me either... more of the same in a new location... is still more of the same.

Posted by Impossibilium

Holy shit. The more I see of this game the more I'm amazed I ordered the CE version.
 
I don't think I've ever spent as much money on a game that looks so fucking dated as this.
 
Curse my Fallout franchise love.

Posted by Death_Unicorn

The bright neon colors mixed with a brown background doesn't look nice, in my view.

Posted by Rorie
@dvorak:  We put a lot of work into new animations when I was there. There's only so much you can do on the timeline we had, though.

I was thinking that id tech 5 would probably be the go-to option, considering their relationship. We can only hope.  
 
With Carmack as the lead engineer, there's no room for improvement on the tech side.

Ugh, I still haven't played Fallout 3 and all its expansions. Please, slow down time!

Posted by DaBuddaDa

Those landscapes and buildings don't make themselves, boys!

Very very stoked for this game.

DAYYYYYM!!
Posted by Flap_jackson

Alright, this just turned into my most anticipated game of the year.

Posted by Chuggsy

Yeah, the engine is really dated and looks terrible in most spots, but I still got kinda excited when I saw some areas. Makes me want to explore them! If it's as good as Fallout 3, then I'll definitely pick it up.

Edited by RE_Player1

I was really excited for this game but all these videos they've been putting out just show me it's the same old Fallout 3 with little to no improvements. I'll pass and buy Borderlands GOTY edition :)

Posted by natural_deadhead

If they fix the crashing issue on the pc version, then I'm in.

Agreed. 
 
The cut from real Vegas footage to game footage shows just how far off the mark they are.  They have failed to make New Vegas look 'glitzy'.  The sky is too light, the lights have no pop, there isn't enough contrast etc. etc.  The rest of the game just looks old.
Posted by IEK

i'll just have to wait for the mods to make it pretty, like i did with fallout 3.

I have no problems with the ugliness of this game, in fact I like that it reminds of me Fallout 3. The one problem I do have though (however minor) is how they've smoothed over some of the rough edges, they've made it look a tiny bit cartoon-y, not as dirty as Fallout 3.

Posted by freshakiff

looks awesome, but I think a lot of the new textures and bright colors mesh horribly with the fallout's art. plus this game looks shitty, fallout 3 looked awesome on a cranked up pc, i wonder if they were just demoing with low graphics.

Posted by IEK

hey is it just me or do some of those guns seem a bit  too modern for the fallout aesthetic...

Posted by MJHAYLETT

a dated game engine is a dated game engine. After Oblivion it was looking ropey and Fallout 3 just about got away with it but this time I am not paying full price for this game. I'm gonna wait, get a GOTY or somesuch cheap.
