From what I read, it is Fallout 4 and it'll be set around Boston.

YES.  That's awesome. I hope we can go and run around in a destroyed Harvard Square. That'd be fun.

They're close enough together and Fallout maps are so big they should both be in, but I agree the focus will be on the Institute.

So, I realize I'm way in the dark on this, but is it assumed that this will be a PS3/360 gen release or a PS4/One release?  I would think if they're planning to release it soon, they wouldn't have had enough development time on the new consoles.  However, I am stupid and wishfully hoping I won't have to clunk down cash for a new console this early.

Yeah, now that I think about it, I definitely heard rumors before that it would be set at M.I.T., I think I had just forgotten about it. Regardless, it'll be fun to run around in the Boston area.

Really? I actually liked New Vegas more. I think it was more in keeping with the original Fallout games. Much better writing than Fallout 3, which make sense considering that Obsidian is made up of ex-Black Isle people.

I hear this a lot. My brother is the same way. In fairness I never played the earlier ones, so I think my issue is that I enjoyed "whatever 3 did differently".

I felt New Vegas:
a) didn't grip me
b) was "too much of too little", so to speak. If you're going to give me miles of open desert to traverse, a vehicle might be in order.

I got to Reno and was knocking off missions, got lost at some point and didn't care to try to get back into it.

About 2 years later I gave it another shot from the beginning and really had a difficult time getting into it again.

So what happens in a few days?  Are they going to announce a fall 2015 release which will slip into 2016?

Probably.

For once I would like to see one of the announcements say "Here's the next thing, and it comes out next month."

I'm hoping Mount and Blade does that, but they took the opposite approach: Announce that there is a sequel about a year ago, never announce a date, and now start putting out dev diaries making me think the game won't be ready for another year.

Thank god for mods.

Awesome!

I loved New Vegas right up until I encountered a game-crippling bug, and haven't felt the impetus to replay most of the game after that.

That's definitely a good reason. It's kind of what I do with the Elder Scrolls series; I play them for a while, get caught up in side missions and just stop giving a shiat about the main story-line, and just never finish them. I literally have no idea how Skyrim or Oblivion end.

And I loved Skyrim. Oblivion, IMO, had great side missions but I couldn't get into the main quest at all. "Oh look, a demon gate, time to GTFO of here"

Skyrim's main quest wasn't better than the side ones, but the powers you earned made existing in the world more fun. You just need to be careful of the order you do them in: go too far in the civil war and a fantastic scene in the Dragon story line never happens.

I put 70 hours into the game, so I  clearly got my money's worth. I just lost any and all impetus to finish the game. I think after a while, in a game like that, when you're powerful enough to kill anything and you've seen the vast majority of the variations on a theme of Nordic/Dwarven dungeon, you need a great plot to keep you going. And I just... yeah. Lost that. I had no emotional connection to the world.

NV was the buggiest game I have ever played.

It crashed seven times during the end-game cinematics, iirc.

With all the complaints that Fallout 3 got for bugs, I never ran into a single bad one. Maybe some clipping issues at times, but other than that it was fine.

Then I got to the part in New Vegas where you have to enter the strip. It crashed every single time. About a week later i found out that I had to wear a beret while entering to keep it from crashing. That game was buggy as hell.

/Still had one of the best DLCs ever though (Old World Blues)

I had some crash bugs at first that were solved pretty easily, and the occasional enemy that would turn into horrifying flying strings of elongated bouncing flesh out of some terrible dimension.  Other than that, no real problems with Fallout 3.  Other than stopping play.

About time. Bethesda should just flip between their 2 franchises forever and I'll be happy.

I had the same reaction. Post-Reno was not that fun.

BUT this franchise is still awesome and I greatly look forward to the next one.

Old World Blues was so freaking awesome.  Dead Money not so much.

One of the things I didn't like about Fallout 3 is where there was no right decision.  Or at least right in my opinion.  Primarily with the Condo Complex in the south west quadrant.  The one where the intelligent mutants wanted in.  Kill the mutants who weren't all that bad and you could get in good with the people (who were not necessarily nice).  Broker a deal where the mutants were let in the building and no matter what happened, the mutants ended up killing the people.  I ended up just not finishing that side quest because I didn't like either outcome.

Ah, the eternal debate between F:3 and F:NV. For my take, I think that F:NV had the better story, but that F:3 had the better world. There was nothing in F:NV that was as interesting as Megaton or the ruins of Washington.

That said, it's clear that Skyrim benefited from both of the new Fallout games, and I expect that the next Fallout will benefit from Skyrim. I really hope that they embrace the new way that Skyrim handled leveling up as I thought that was a great innovation.

I don't know; they've been holding true to the Experience-Points-Leveling system with the Fallout games and the Skill-Use-Leveling system with the Elder Scrolls games.  Skyrim's leveling wasn't really innovative for that specific game, they've been doing that since Daggerfall (maybe Arena).

At least with Skyrim they got rid of some of the physical skills.  Doing my jackrabbit imitation as I run from place to place, bounding with every leap shouldn't necessarily give me a level based on agility.

On the other hand, in Oblivion there was that one spot in that castle where you crouch, sneak, and just run non-stop into the wall for several hours while you max out your sneak.

You mean the ghouls and Tenpenny Tower? Yea, that's kinda how Fallout works. It's definitely not black and white. Some decisions might seem right until it comes back to bite you in the ass later. I ended up killing the ghouls and then blowing up Tenpenny with about 40 mines. His body must've flown half a mile away.

Yea, NV had much better characters and I enjoyed the story more (the independent storyline with Yes Man was awesome), but the setting was pretty bare bones. Fallout 3 had one of those environments where you could just explore a small part for hours, or checking out all the actual sites and how close they were to real life.

And Fallout 3 had the biggest cop-out endings ever. I'm glad they retconned it with Broken Steel, because when I reached that the first time and had Fawkes telling me that dying by radiation poisoning "was my destiny", I was about to shoot him in the farking face. Of course that wouldn't have accomplished anything because he was damn near invincible with that health glitch.

It always drove me nuts when I needed to get someplace for the first time in the Capitol Wasteland and it's like an inch away on the map but I have to go through 4 sewers and a building to get there.

The ending of 3 was stupid as all hell.  First time I played through on the PS3 I didn't have Broken Steel.  I was also frustrated by the in and out of sewers and subways etc to get around town so I wasn't paying as much attention to the side quests as maybe I should have.  So I'm going along hitting the main quest and suddenly, the game is over.  Upset me to no end.

hoping they have a similar jump as Oblivion -> Skyrim, the city in 3 was kind of underwhelming when you got there compared to the wastelands
 
2013-11-25 05:13:24 PM
I thought this had already been... well not debunked, but rather shown to not follow the protocol that bethesda has taken with any PR related to previous games, from hosting (not hosted by bethesda but somewhere like poland?) to hardly any details to source material that is found off the internet to the date not matching the spike vgas (when the expected fo4 announcement is to occur) and following the 11-11-11 thing of skyrim with 12-11-13 (which makes more sense with how the euros write dates with day month year).

That said even after announcement you can expect 10-ish months to release (which follows the oblivion skyrim fallout 3 new vegas announcement to release).

/no i am not just sitting around waiting for fallout 4 to release i can sit here with my vault tech bobblehead doll and await the apocalypse with his positive attitude and big smile.

Count me in the crowd that loved 3, but hated the fact that a wrecked car that is 2' high blocks your path forcing you to travel 30 minutes through sewers/train stations.
