this game is going to be hot garbage i can see the fanboi tears already
This is a Bethesda game in 2008.
>Those arms in the backgroup
Get out of here stalker!
Bethesda has become one of the laziest devs. Yearly rehashes at least take some effort. Bethesda just shits out a few buggy messes a decade then just expects the community to fix it. You still can't see your own feet for fucks sake
Don't forget to make another appointment with the receptionist before you leave.
Fuck you behesda. Fucking lazy hacks.
>the world's changed
As compared to what, though? I mean, to the protagonist sure, but the guy he's talking to has nothing to compare it to. He grew up in the chaos he's trying to "correct", and his motives don't even make sense. He has nothing to compare it to other than old, old tales of days gone by.
I think the best part of that original trailer is how it shows how he walks all around Boston and stuff. it implies he travels a lot, there is a lot to discover ... but you can walk across the map in 12 minutes, and it's not a lot of land to cover.
Well, at least we know that it's a proper sequel to Fo3

SHHHHHHHHHHH man SHHHHHHHHHHHHH
your overthinking it and demand more than the least possible from tired and toiled writers.
waitaminute, that last name
>Buy out fucking ID software
>Which still has a bunch of Carmack trained coders
>Don't use them for anything
B-but anon, please ... maybe Bethesda ... can change? Surely all men can change -- even Todd! r-right?
The entire map is open as far as we know - there might be some sea to explore but we don't know yet. You can download the video showing him walking across the map here. https://mega.nz/#!dcEUWSrA!8wNNnVo0K279cP7fCcunoIkQjW9uqp1PfLZ1xHod-q8
It was posted in a different thread, namely this one: >>315353656
Notice how all the enemies do not pursue him for long or try to catch up with him.
>B-but anon, please ... maybe Bethesda ... can change? Surely all men can change -- even Todd! r-right?
maybe once he runs out of unused morrowind lore to put into the newer elder scroll entries forcing him to have to step up his teams at least in a writing sense
It looks like it'll be a fun mindless exploration game like most Bethesda games.
Though that facial animation technique from Oblivion really needs to be updated by now. Shit looks horrible.
I've never played Fallout for its graphics, especially the originals.
To me this looks fine, the colour pallet is much more appealing than Fallout 3 (Green Edition) or Fallout New Vegas (Orange Edition)
Last I checked it should be the same resolutions on both but with a setting or two lower on the Xbox because, despite minimal hardware differences, Xbone's OS is an asset hogging pile of shit. It would not surprise me however if that causes Xbone to be at 900-1000p like it has with other games.
>Super-Sledge doesn't come to Fallout 4, added with mods/DLC
>No Gravity Hammer in Halo 5, will be added later with Forge
Why do they have to take away our glorious smashing instruments, /v/?
>>No Gravity Hammer in Halo 5, will be added later with Forge
what the fuck
the game doesn't ship with forge? or a gravity hammer?
Ok, so they do have them still. This is my question, though. Why give guns melee now? The entire point of melee was to get up close to where guns lose the advantage. Now they'll just melee you.
>despite minimal hardware differences
There's not minimal hardware differences though. There's countless write ups by respectable sites like anandtech detailing the specifics, but the conclusion is:
>Sony gave the PS4 50% more raw shader performance, plain and simple (768 SPs @ 800MHz vs. 1152 SPs & 800MHz)
>The Xbox One and PS4 architectures are quite similar, Sony just has more hardware under the hood
The general excuse is it was OK when Halo 3's forge was garbage till Foundry came out, but Halo 3 still shipped with Forge regardless. But no, Forge is coming in December and some more social playlists are coming imminently.
I'm a bit sick of vidya in general just handing out a base game with a "promise of content" by now, its been plaguing the industry for far too long.
>Why haven't I seen a melee weapon yet? All I see is this Halo-tier gun melee. Where is my Supersledge?
cause just like in fallout 3 combat as a whole has once again been designed solely around gun play. heh i still remember how surprised todd was at the fact that people beat the game as melee/unarmed builds instead of the shittly made shoot bangs
its because publishers are fucking nuts about getting big games out at exactly the right time (ie like right now) to maximize profits
stuff like halo 5 and fallout 4 that are made for children and young teens sell the best when they come out around now, because of the holidays
Yeah but its not even just big titles and publishers that keep pulling it, its just as widespread if not more-so among smaller studios/titles. Vidya can't be getting that god damn hard to develop, just how much of this is laziness in one of the least physically demanding professions out there?
People that buy this are genuinely getting ripped off and scammed for their money.
Actually the thought just occured to me is that they're probably waiting till December to add in Forge and all this other shit so they can push holiday sales as long as they can
Those corporate fucks.
and yet it will sell millions and casuals and consolefags won't bat an eye
it'll probably get a 9/10 on every "major" review site and will probably get several "goty" "awards" too
gaming is kill. can you imagine what the next bethshit game will be like?
it's the terrible plastic textures and the terrible animations
11 mins to cross entire map diagonally, toppest of keks.
LOL did you faggots even grow up with nes?
You entitled stupid fucks dont even know what it is like anymore to enjoy a video game because its fun. NO 757867 Bit graphics with 800 fps nah bro fuck that what shit..
Play original zelda you fags. NAH BRO 8 BIT 5 FPS FUCK THAT ITS CRAP.
I don't think the intended response to those was laughter, but goddamn.
What? Have you fuckers never seen Andrew Garfield before?
I hope mods help.
im pirating this game when they do.
No one deserves to be paid for this.
Grew up with NES and SNES and PSX and PS2 and now a 360.
Bethesda's always a buggy shitfest, it's what they do. The only game that WASN'T a buggy piece of shit was RAGE. Not a single glitch or bug in it. Should have made a fucking fallout game on that engine or whatever. Would have been the tits. Still, it's 2015, shit's just unacceptable. Fuck the FPS and whatever else, glitchy shitbombs are not acceptable in this day and age.
You know, even if the areas that the games take place in now are so tiny, I hope they at least talk about places beyond that. Like in New Vegas you still got the feeling that the world was huge beyond what you can just see in the game where they talk about the goings on in California and New Mexico where actual countries have emerged and fighting for dominance.
Shame there won't be any of that in Fallout 4. The story and the scope of things will undoubtly be as small as the game world itself.
>I've never played Fallout for its graphics
What do you play it for then?
The bugs? The repetitive quests? The reused assets? The 4 voice actors? The tired old stereotypes and tropes? The hollow theme park experience padded out by miles of uninteresting wasteland and invisible walls?
A leaked gameplay video showed a gun battle during which the Dogmeat was set on fire.
The Dogmeat dog didn't react to being on fire at all, he simply walked it off until the fire disappeared. It's your opinion whether or not that's acceptable.
>cause just like in fallout 3 combat as a whole has once again been designed solely around gun play. heh i still remember how surprised todd was at the fact that people beat the game as melee/unarmed builds instead of the shittly made shoot bangs
Which is funny, since there are three worthwhile unarmed weapons in all of Fallout 3 (Fisto!, The Shocker and the Deathclaw Gauntlet),compared to the 16+ unique guns.
Holy shit Bethesda didn't even play Fallout 2.
Not only that:
"The Vertibird was still in the prototype phase when the Great War struck in 2077, preventing it from entering full military service which was scheduled for 2085."
The Museum of Technology - FALLOUT FUCKING 3
Fallout 3 established that Vertibirds were in prototype stage before the war, probably like the Lockheed Martin X-35's first flight was in 2000 when in 2015 it has barely been introduced to the real armies
>literally walking in f3
>sprinting in f4
I'll give you the benifit of the dog and say that f4 is ONLY going to take 30 min to traverse; what fun is there in walking? Now if they had vehicles...
yes but I wanted to add that prototypes can take a fuck long of time to be developped and thus it isn't impossible that a flying prototype crashed before the war happened
Also interestingly enough it seems you can see a pre-war US army APC in the introduction and it looks almost insectoid-like, kinda like the vertibird itself
It's a nice detail
At least the gunplay actually looks polished for once. I never understood how Fallout 3 and NV managed to make first person shooters with bad gameplay when it's literally point and click.
>Better graphics and style
>On a horse
And, are those even the edges of the map? I don't even like Witcher series and can see you are desperate. I don't think more or less filler content is going to be what matters when I play games like this anyway. Time wasting bullshit and bad gameplay are the real problems, and there is no shortage of that.
This is modded Fallout 3, and I'm not just talking about the UI. Been playing vanilla Fallout 3 today and yesterday, Super Mutants do not look like this. They look worse.
I get that we're on a hate-train with regards to 4 now, but don't try to actually mislead people.
Reminds me of how it literally took Rockstar a year and a half to release Heists for GTA Online only for them to be buggy as hell, it's amazing how lazy this industry has gotten.
I just don't understand how anyone stays hype for vidya anymore.
I took the screenshot myself from my modded Fallout 3, because there was a glitch where the super mutant's proportions became ridiculously deformed. I am amazed that none of you guys even noticed that.
>people who wail on fallout must be witcher fans
Yeah, it´s not like this shown material is pathetic enough for players of neither to laugh about it, right?
By the way, you are pathetic as well.
I don't know why you keep making those thread. Neo/v/ is waiting for the reviews to drop, give it a 90+ and spam "shitposter BTFO the game is good mfw bought GOTY for 300$ and you didn't".
Neo/v/, more like /v/eogaf at this point.
Yeah they totally didn't drop people randomly during the middle of a game (which consequently would cancel the mission and return everyone back to free roam given the asinine requirement to have 4 people in the game at all times) and have random fuckups where heists would fail for no reason.
>le neo-/v/ maymay
/v/ has always been this bad. People generally tend to remember only the good stuff about the past. Blinded by nostalgia.
>All that empty Sea
IT'S NEW VEGAS ALL OVER AGAIN

DEY PREORDERED DEH GAME
>thinking 2D = bad graphics
When will this meme die?
Alright I might give it a shot this weekend, I've been wanted to see this motherfucker for a while now.
They are masterpieces that are exceptionally difficult for a new player to enjoy or understand.
You basically need a split personality that's been napping since 1998 or you need an actual time machine.
Also, I'd say the most important mindset to have is to treat it more like an experience than a "game".
FO1 and FO2 had zero issue with shitting all over you two zones in and ending your run. Bad outcomes and failure is a core part of the game, not the after effect of doing something incorrectly or missing a step.
This may sound like psychobabble, but the majority of the time that someone tries FO1 or FO2 and hates it, they were subconsciously breaking the game apart into small components and trying to reconcile how these "fit" into what their perception of a game actually is.
FO1 and FO2 don't give a fuck what people think a "game" is. They don't care if you win instantly, lose instantly, get completely lost, accidentally kill a critical NPC, or drop a quest item in the middle of the desert and lose it forever. Serious amounts of patience and imagination are required.
That's what separates good rpgs from bad one. The more you can feel the hand of the developer guiding you along, the more of a disconnect you feel with the character you're playing as. Not to mention giving your character a voice is a HUGE blow to immersion because your self created character is his own person and not you.
the Atom Cats are apparently some gang with pompadour hairstyles that really like Power Armor. There is even a guy (i think his name was Duke) who wore a suit of Power Armor with fucking flame stripes pattern all over it.
One of the guys you talk to says the word "Coolsville"
>the Atom Cats are apparently some gang with pompadour hairstyles that really like Power Armor.
Why the fuck is Bethesda handing out Power Armor like its going out of style? seriously in NV the only two factions to have PA were Brotherhood and Remnants and you had to go through either of their quest lines and visit a bunch of locations before you get PA training from them
Do we have any idea who the companions are besides the ones shown in previews?
Only ones I know so far are:
>You're a mutt
>WE WAS KINGZ AND QUEENZ
> and the chick with facial animations based off of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ySoyMvW5sU
oh i forgot to mention. one of the female gangs there actually lets you barter for power armor parts like legs, chests, and shit.
i think they are like motorheads but instead of cars they do power armor, thus the fucking disgusting flame stripes.
It's just so dense..every single frame has so much going on.
Yes, obviously a location over a thousand miles away from the west coast that has had essentially no contact with that region since the war will have the exact same factions and the exact same distribution of resources.
I remember reading rumors that F4 was going to be an id tech game, but no they had to use broken-ass barely functioning gamebryo again.
Then again it's not really id anymore. It's essentially just the Raven rejects.
That's what you had to do in NV thanks to the invisible walls.
>All i wasnted was a gas mask to wear in-game
>previous games didn't have it
Why does God has to torture me like this?
Its because /v/ is for people who spend their lives focusing on video games, they dont realize that the rest of the world spends their lives focusing on their lives and see video games as something fun to keep them entertained for a little bit. /v/ is also pretty blind to the purdinent issues at hand and worldly affairs that also actually matter. Im too old for this shit, deuces

>Before what war?
Tell me where you live so I can mail your answer, It's important
Reminder that you need an i7 and a GTX 980 to even dream about maxing this game out
>"Its all about the gameplay!!!!!!111"
Too bad the gameplay is shit.
Btw, NES had great graphics for its time and most of the 80's games you jizz over had top graphics for their time.
They are masterpieces that are exceptionally difficult for a new player to enjoy or understand.
Yeah no. F1 is a masterpiece, F2 is ultimate garbage. Also the games have nothing difficult, they were the Skyrims of their time, for normies. Not to mention the first one is litteraly baby's first RPG.
By that logic you shouldn't be able to see your hands, they are not yours after all. Sprinting? How the fuck would you be able to sprint when IRL you're a fat fuck that can't get up? Slaw powerful monsters and restore peace to the kingdom? You litteraly cannot get immersed because you can't do that IRL!!!
If your character isn't the exact same height and weight, it's not you. Third person? GOD NO! It's not you.
No, you just have legit autism.
This is the first fallout game that I am not completely excited for. Seeing the graphics and now the size of the map being so small this game is no longer a day one buy for me. The only stuff that looks interesting is features that have been put in previous games through modding. The world looks dull and the stripped down interactions mean that unfortunately Todd, I will not be pre-ordering Fallout 4 or buying it at release
games whose quality is only discussed, but never really experienced?
Kind of like Fallout3 is great, but only if you don´t know something better, like most of the people who bought it.
So what? They're just a huge company with numerous successful titles behind them.
How the FUCK do you expect them to afford quality control and a higher production standards?
That shit's straight up wack, my man.
Reminder that they not only removed reputation yet again, but they've even gone so far as to remove karma.
Also all dialog "skill" checks are based off of one perk, which is "persuasion", and uses a three tier luck-based system.
>they've even gone so far as to remove karma
He's probably fully embracing it, even after the countless wedgies and being made fun of at school from his classmates for being a blind bethesda follower.
Probably pre-ordered it and every other gimmicky bullshit related to FO4 out of autistic defiance.
That running animation makes me want to throw up.
They had two jobs, make better animations and add shadows.,
They failed both
I am genuinely amazed at how shitty this looks. I don't have much faith in the gameplay since well, its Bethesda, but how the fuck can you be a company that big and make something look so bad in 2015? I'm betting the budget was at least several times what Witcher 3's was, with a larder team. It looks fucking awful.
>recycled Skyrim turn animation
>clipboard snaps to arm like a shield in SKYRIM
I am starting to expect the worst rather than hope for the best and this thought is finally affecting my buying patterns. At E3 they were acting like the updates to the franchise were innovative but really the game is a glorified early access title like half of the new AAA garbage that is being shit down from once respected publishers
man this font is 100% more fitting and interesting than this bland metro-esque shit Bethesda seems to like ever since Skyrim
between medieval fantasy and post apocalyptic sci-fi do they really think such a modern style is the most appropriate?
At the risk of sounding like a total shill and a redditor I'd say that's one of the coolest things I've heard.
Please be real.
You know, Bethesda games have all been pretty average since oblivion.
I don't get why people expect anything different with each release.
Sure It'd be good but its not feasible; this game isn't for people who enjoy really good video games, its pretty much the most complex videogame with no barriers to entry for normies.
One of the developers in an interview was explaining about how excited he was about making a fallout game in his home town and how real it accurate it was.
Using the most iconic phrase in Fallout games for TEH DRAMA. I don't know what I could've expected from Bethesda.
>tfw still gonna waste tons of hours on the game even though it's garbage just like i need
Wait, you can just throw grenades now? THANK FUCK
One of my favorite hobbies is modding Bethesda games
I will make this game fun
Why do people keep saying this shit is bad when it's obvious it's all a side effect of the wild wasteland perk?
Did someone already make a "WELCOME TO EB GAMES" edit?
>come up with cool looking concept art for Fallout 4
>Gamebryo waters it down to liquid shit
They just couldn't let go of that fucking engine. It's like they're fulfilling someone's death wish.
I dont want to pull out the slimey limey "IT'S 2015 PEOPLE I MEAN COME ON" meme but really.
I mean come on
how do you make a AAA game this bad
STILL A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE, STILL PANDERING TO HETSHIT BRODUDES
I LITERALLY CAN'T EVEN
As a one to one. There is a gap. It's Minimal in the context of PC hardware completely destroying it and making it obsolete. Real world results aren't that impressive either. Comparative PC's were only giving a few FPS performance jump and the bottleneck in the xbone is the type of RAM it uses.
Both are weak as shit and Sony shills have been doing 180's ever since launch to justify the PS4's lack of performance versus the hype.
It fucking makes sense, faggot
It's been 200 years since the war happened, and your character is still a 30 year old
And fucking alive
This just iterates that there were wars in the wasteland in the recent past
How in the fuck is Fallout 4 this bad? How in the world do you make a game this fucking bad when you're a big name dev?
Because they've been getting away with little shit since Oblivion, so they've been gradually stepping it up. I'd say that before they used to provide a decent painting that the modding community takes the time to improve over the years, but now they're just throwing an overpriced empty canvas at us and demanding we make something beautiful for them to sell.
>Sure the gameplay is bad, but it's not about the gameplay!
>Sure the writing is bad, but it's about the sidequests!
>Sure the graphics are bad, but graphics don't matter!
>Sure it runs like shit, but mods will fix it!
And then Bethesda realized that no matter how shitty their games are, modders will come in to fix them, and people will forget how fucking garbage the games were at launch just in time to buy the next one.
So if Fallout 3 was Oblivion with guns, what is Fallout 4?
No they weren't. Back in the real world it's explained that the simulation has a lot of liberties taken with it thanks to the interference of the US General rendered in the simulation.
BioShock Infinite on the ground or Far Cry 4 with nukes.
