I didn't see any chatter about this on the forum thus far, so I figured a thread was in order! Awful thread subtitle inspired by Balla.  Wink



We have footage!

Boston seems to have been confirmed judging by the shots of Harvard and other Boston landmarks. Other things to take away from the trailer are the higher level of graphical fidelity, a more vibrant colour palette than before and seemingly, a voiced protagonist.

Thoughts? I personally love the colour choice this time around - the turgid greens and burnt oranges of the last two games got old fast, so to see some variance in the colour palette is properly refreshing. Here's hoping it's more like New Vegas in terms of its quests!

I've never played a Fallout. It will be nice to get it on one on day one, mind.

A lot of chat on the Internet about the graphics being dodgy but this is a really early build, I'm assuming, of a game we won't see for a while. Also, would those same people honestly have preferred a CG trailer?

I have said else where and you all know I've not liked Fallout games in the past but from the trailer 4 looks good.

I was thinking it's this year Drunka as I think Bethesda are the sort of publisher to announce something close to launch then do a ubisoft & announce 2 years before launch.

They didn't seem too ropey to me. Fallout 3 and New Vegas looked pretty awful for their time, yet were still fantastic games. This looks decent graphically - I'm not concerned.

I don't think this is an early build though. I reckon it'll be coming this year, as Mas says. Maybe late October/November. I reckon we'll get a release date at E3.

Can't believe I forgot to post in here. I was so excited when I saw the trailer. I love 3 & NV so I'm well up for another trip into that world. Boston should also make up for the slightly lacking map of NV. I'm also hoping they keep at least the faction system from NV, though I am worried by how negatively the game is perceived.

I have made my opinions clear about Fallout 3 before, but in short, it was horribly ugly to look at and just so boring to play. I wanted to like it, I really did, I just couldn't. From the trailer, it is definitely a whole lot better looking, especially the colour palette, and so it should, but the actual gameplay would have to change dramatically for me to care.

At this stage, it certainly won't be enough for me to splash out on a PS4, not even close really, but if it is good, which I am sure it will be, I will just get it really cheap in 2 years time and try it out, with much lower expectations than last time.

I'm pretty much the same as you OldSchool on Fallout series and 4 so far.

While the visuals where no where near ps2 quality that some people suggested/joked about I did think the character models and some textures weren't up to scratch for a AAA ps4/XO title.

As for the Fallout series I've never been massively interested despite how some folk rave about them and the trailer for the new one hasn't convinced me either but I guess they are only aiming for fans of the series.

It's the engine holding them back, I reckon. I'm still looking forward to it - Fallout, and Elder Scrolls by extension, is not about the graphics to me.

Yeah I doubt it'll take anything away from the gameplay.

It's getting close to launch now! I'm ridiculously excited for this game.

I don't know if any of you have been watching the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. animations that have been going up over the past few weeks, but they've been drip-feeding us little bits of information in those videos. The latest one revealed that whilst we can still sneak up on enemies, apparently they can do the same to us as well. Eep. No

I might put this one down on the Christmas list.

I'm on a bit of a Fallout lockdown, considering taking the week off for it as well as I've got 6 days of holiday lying around expiring rapidly...

Here's a pre-rendered trailer that you're inevitably going to see pop up on TV soon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YnyQTSALCE

I've got this pre-ordered - I never preorder games, but this is something I have to make an exception for. Got it for a decent price too.

I've not seen anything of this since the launch trailer and don't intend to until launch, luckily I have the week off after it's release which happened by pure coincidence. Grin

I still can't fathom how my playtime's the same as yours yet you're done with the game. Have you been clearing locations? I've spent ages just fannying about the Wasteland going from location to location and clearing them out of loot.

I didn't actually take an incredible amount of loot because I simply couldn't carry it. I carry too many weapons, so I only had room for aluminium nad rubber for fixing up my Power Armour. I also didn't often go into places without a reason. I didn't realise there were so many emergent quests until I was collecting the bobble heads

Yeah, I think it'd be a shame to miss out on some of those quests. I was pottering about the Wasteland when I came across a talking fridge sitting by a house - it wasn't near a location, or by a main road, but it started a little sidequest for me to do. Pretty neat, and FO4's stacked with things like that.

Anyone had a chance to play Far Harbour yet?

I rattled through it myself over the past couple of days, and I really liked my time with it. Despite a few nasty performance issues, I had a blast gunning down all the deformed swamp beasts and the story was a grade above your standard Bethesda fare. Worth the price, I'd say.

I was waiting for the fix as I had heard it ran really badly on PS4, will be delving into it when I'm done on Witcher I think.

I wouldn't say it was really bad - the framerate noticeably chugs whenever you're outside, but it's not unplayable.

What was unplayable was the fact that the DLC's best loot is gated behind an awful puzzle section that looks ugly as sin and uses the finicky settlement building controls. You'll know it when you see it, and boy does it grind the game to a halt.

The game has been fixed by getting rid of the fog on PS4.

I've not played it, you wouldn't catch me playing Boreout. But I thought I'd let you guys know.
