If you have ever seen a person with a male human infant please contact John Fallout with the codeword HATE NEWSPAPERS.
>Fallout 3 you spend your time chasing after your father
>Fallout 4 you spend your time chasing after your son
I just want to see someone create a character in Howard's likeness and name him FaggoTodd early enough to release pictures of that before the official release of the game.
I'm fucking flabbergasted over the constant use of him referring to his son as a baby.
There wasn't some weird plot device where the SS thinks the baby was taken and he instantly wakes up so there's no reason to for him to just assume Shaun was taken like five minutes before he got out.
He knows he was in fucking cryosleep for 200 years why is he assuming the baby is a baby?
Nigga, you were frozen before the war 200 fucking years ago and you're looking for you fucking baby?!
Your baby is long fucking dead, but maybe you can find his great great grand children.
Piper asks your character what his stance on newspapers is.
Even as far as defending the one word answers on the dialogue wheel this one is especially shit because one option (and the others are not great mind you) is "HATE NEWSPAPERS".
We're given the context for the answer ("what's your opinion on newspapers") and even then HATE NEWSPAPERS still sounds vague as shit on what you're really going to say and also sounds like your a fucking retard.
>those fucking vaultboy animations
todd you need to fire your fucking animators
jesus christ if that's the intelligent options, what would the retard ones sound like
exactly like a child would
goddamn this game is going to be a beautiful disaster.
No Kabal, I haven't seen anyone with a baby.
It's just horribly implemented.
The best system of dialogue wheel is either DE:HR (where it explains very carefully about what Jensen will say and Jensen will say that thing exactly like that) or Alpha Protocol (where it just divided to 3 choices but you know what kind of choices are those and Michael will say things according to those choices). Bethesda just following Mass Effect style of choices, which is fucking horrible.
I want there to be a mod of the main character's lines being replaced by an autist screaming at the top of his lungs with just those words that show up
this would make the game better somehow
There was nothing wrong with the way it worked in previous fallout games. This is just another infuriating change meant to make it more 'accessible' but really just comes off as horribly patronizing.
>mfw people here actually paid money for this shitheap
That's DA:II levels of "I just don't give a fuck what you say player"
WAIT WHAT THE FUCK
THE MAP IS FUCKING TINY HOLY SHIT
the top half of her face didn't move an inch during that entire encounter
the bottom half barely matched the voice, almost as if they 'made' a program to match voices with lips
So the Fallout 4 protagonist canonically has 1 int?
"We ended up setting up camp next to to a nest of Ghouls so we had to change locations."
"Yes, Ghouls, that's what I said."
"The Minutemen? We used to be 20 last month, now we're down to 5. I just want to keep my people safe."
That exactly what they've always done. They used to use 3rd party software for their lipsync but dropped it for their own in-house program in Skyrim. For some reason it just got worse for FO4.
The "best" use of a dialogue wheel is when we're given a pre-existing character to have talk. It works with shit like Witcher because Geralt already has a very cleared defined personality. If you say the "mean" option it's what Geralt would say to be a dick or if you pick the "nice" response it's Geralt being begrudgingly nice in his own angry slav way. Likewise Jensen is his own man and you're just sort of leading him throughout a conversation.
Shit like this doesn't work with voiced protagonists who are also supposed to be a blank slate. It always comes off as every single dialogue is written without the character in mind so you make these player characters sound like retarded schizos who can go from wacky and zany sarcasm man to gruff angry dude in a single conversation.
Still, even then, the dialogue wheels in Mass Effect and DA:I aren't the worst. They're not amazing but passable I guess.
This is up there with Dragon Age 2 in terms of hot shit.
Rubberbanding makes the game ridiculously easy, as the Mexican leaker proved. He traveled all the way from the northwest to the southeast side of the map without engaging in combat and Dogmeat managed to kill enemies single-handedly on numerous occasions.
I called it. Day one when it was announced I kept saying it was just Fallout in the Skyrim engine.
Graphics won't be a problem, there'll be mods for that. But fuck, the dialogue system. It's been devolving generation after generation of Beth game.
>the dialogue wheels in Mass Effect and DA:I aren't the worst
It's still shit. Bioware pretty much makes dialogues where you got option A or B and the outcome is always C
I'm not saying that I supporting the FO4 direction where you get a backstory now, but if they want to do it like that, they have to make sure to make it well done
Which is not something Bethesda will do, they have always half-assed everything
I'm honestly really surprised there hasn't been an Oblivion + Skyrim "Remaster" on the XB1 and PS4. You'd think it'd sell millions of copies due to being the "definitive" version and would require minimal work compared to making an entire brand new game.
Been watching his stream since the beginning and the game actually looks good. Far better than the actual screenshots, I'm not sure why the screenshots look like such shit but the game looks great in motion.
Anyone else enjoying the trainwreck?
People were suspending their skepticism because TODD HOWARD IS GOD REPLICA PIPBOY WEAPON CRAFTING.
Good to give people a nice kick in the balls for blindly putting faith in anyone, especially Bethesda.
>tfw 6gb of ram and a 1045t 2.7ghz x6 cpu
hopefully i can run it decently
you are having a laff right?
im not sure anyone could watch this shit and think it's good. maybe if i was cross faded i could enjoy it because of how plasticy and goofy everything looks
There's fucking NOTHING ELSE on the screen that they need to conserve room for, and the options are lined up in a way that they wouldn't overlap - why did they bother making them so short and vague when they could easily have written entire sentences there?
It went offline because some shit told him to turn off the HUD with console commands and he didn't know how to turn it back on. It looked like it was his first time using Gamebryo console commands.
>decisions you make and actions you perform can affect how much a companion likes you.
>Codsword hated that
oh jesus fuck is this game for fucking babies. Oh, hey, unkillable children that take you straight out of the game. Of course.
>It's a commercial success, GOTY based on sales alone
>Bethesda announces that it was a FO3 mod all along, that people were happy with a paid mod and have nothing to complain about when they sell mods in the future
it will just be a big smiley face and a big frowney face
occasionally pressing the big smiley face will cause your character to violently rape the person you are talking to to death and then smashing a glass in their face
I am. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
Also the pipboy edition is pretty bare bones compared to F3 and NV CE. The pipboy itself looks cheap and the steel book has the exact same artwork as the standard edition.
>the glimmer of hope that I hold deep in my heart for Elder Scrolls 6 finally returning to form and continuing the legacy of Morrowind almost shatters completely
someone's going to call me a faggot for that glimmer of hope even being there, but I love morrowind and all I want is one more elder scrolls game that is as good as morrowind. Just one more before I die.
12-13 minutes with no gun in hands.
Landscape seems somewhat varied at least. He goes from suburbs, to forest, to a radioactive green area, to the city, to a swamp in that short amount of time. Compare that to 3 where you couldn't tell where you were in the wasteland at any given point since everything looked the fucking same unless you were smack dab in the middle of DC.
There's no need to hack Denuvo since Denuvo isn't DRM. It's anti-tamper. The DRM (Steamworks/Origin/etc.) prevent the game from running without being authorized, the anti-tamper (Denuvo) prevents the executable from running without being modified.
However if the DRM thinks you're authorized, you don't need to modify the executable at all. That's how every Denuvo game has been cracked so far.
it's so dense; every single frame has so many things going on' mean?
That's across the center, not diagonally. It takes like 17 minutes to traverse from the top-left to the bottom-right. That's about six minutes more.
That means the total area of Fallout 3's map is roughly twice Fallout 4's, and Fallout 3's map already felt tiny.
That has to be the worst map boundary implementation I have ever seen.
Invisible walls are not enough, they had to make it uneven and jagged so it's not even a wall, you just randomly run into invisible obstacles.
>WAIT FOR PC RELEASE AND DON'T FORGET TO PRE-ORDER FOR TODD HOWARD PLSS xD
God I was explaining how the game wasnt using denuvo about a week ago, and every fucker in that thread jumped down my throat.
I know its just a anon image board, but i feel so fucking vindicated now that its confirmed. I hope all those anons feel a slight tinge of embarrassment at getting so worked up over it.
>All I want is one more.
As the budget of a game increases you need to attract more customers to offset the cost and increase ROI.
You can't make a AAA game for a niche market and expect to keep your company afloat.
Bullshit. You can reconcile these things. Keep the same dialogue stuff as previous games. People loved the fuck out of fo3 and skyrim. Keep the faction systems, lore and hire competent writers. Then advertise the gun play and dude bro exploration to the casual market. Its possible dammit. Bethesda is just too fucking lazy.
Dragon age 2 actually attempted to try and solve this with your primary choices in dialogue affecting Hawke's personality and manner of speech even outside of dialogue choices.
Too bad the rest of the game was shit.
Where's the stream, friends. Ha ha! Fallout :D
Yes. You shouldn't think of the MC as "your character" either, going in. Like Mass Effect, you can only slightly modify the characteristics of an otherwise pre-defined protagonist.
>fallout 4 ripping off the plot of lisa
B R A V O
>shoots guy in head once
>literally no one reacts until he shoots a second time
Some things never change I guess.
Because modern gaming audiences cannot understand the concept of immersion and roleplaying, so Bethesda thought it was a good idea to appeal to people who cannot read a sentence longer than a hashtag.

Serves them right.

i honestly don't know what people expected from bethesda
Quality Bethesda VAs as always. Thanks, anon.
Someone please tell me this is a partially unloaded texture and a few seconds later it fully loaded?
THE SECURITY OF WHITERUN IS TERRIBLE SHAMEFUL IS WHAT IT IS
as long as they bring back the ahnold impersonator no matter how out of place it will be cool.
Don't bring back wonder woman she was a terrible voice actress.
You a prisoner
You a prisoner
You a prisoner
What were you expecting? innovation?
I doubt it. That's the thing about anonymous image boards. You can make yourself look like a colossal retard and when you realize it you just walk away and it doesn't matter since what you say isn't attached to anything.
I would be lying if I said I have not made myself look like an idiot on here a few times.
it's supposed to be bethesda's biggest shekel generator and nothing else
streamer straight up stood there for several seconds, some textures are really that bad
that is maxxed out on pc too
I guess that image was a thumb nail.
I just looked like an idiot again.
Yep. Now you know what Todd meant when he was talking about unique details. It was an excuse. "We didn't give you quantity, take our 'quality' instead".
I guess senpai/ily has been changed to senpai.
Is kek cu/ck still censored too?
God damn Jackie 4chan.
to be fair, deathclaws used to be literal pant-shitting encounters. in lore they're fucking walking tanks and the west coast BoS had a 'fucking run' policy if a patrol finds even one. It's partly why DEATHCLAW VILLAGE was so cring in FO3.
That streamer was horrible.
>Only put points into S.P.E.C.I.A.L instead of leveling up perks
>All his weapons was doing no damage because of that
>He did not put any points in toughness, he was getting two hit killed by the lowest form of mirlurk
>he got so tired of geting killed over and over that he turned TGM on
The whole thing was pretty much game reviewer/10.
>>super mutants = orcs
Where does this meme come from? Orcs haven't been a generic elder scrolls enemy in 19 years
>A PAL? Whats that?
>Sons Of Big Boss, why that name?
>Holy shit I have a twin?! Im finding this out now?!
How is most of that unnecessary in anyway at all? Especially the last one.
Its not hundreds of years in the future since he was taken you idiots. Its pretty clear some raiders broke into the vault who knows when took the baby and then the father slept some more who knows how long. Its pretty obvious the baby is gonna be some middle aged raiders leader or something.
>super mutants = orcs
man that hurts me the must since super mutants used to be end game tough as hell enemies and even more so when fought in a group.
and now they are regulated as generic cannon fodder due to lazy and shitty writing
>Where does this meme come from?
from the first fallout where they looked like orcs
and talked like orcs
and their role in the story is the same orcs have in any generic wrpg ever
GET IT, GAMER? HE IS A TRANSGENDER. HE IS A MALE THAT LIKES TO WEAR A DRESS.

You stomped her for all the years you had to take it. You stomped her because you are such a weak fucking sister and you wanted to erase all memory of it. Go on. Try to deny it

Even without being forced to adhere to some bullshit deadline, they still pushed this piece of shit out the door. I honestly have no idea what the fuck is going on in their studios. Do any of them show up for work anymore?
Fucker kept sprinting which makes it hard to guess, but let's be generous and say he's moving at an average of 15mph and it takes him about 11 minutes to cross. 15mph is roughly how fast an average human can go in short bursts without training but let's somehow assume all that HAET NEWSPAPER gives him some good endurance.
That's roughly 2.5, let's call it 3 to be INCREDIBLY GENEROUS
He chose the longest route which was a rough diagonal so let's assume (even though it's fucking not) the area of nunewnubostan is square
That means the total INCREDIBLY GENEROUS area of this game is about 9sq miles.
So three morrowinds, since over a decade ago. more like two morrowinds. Still can't manage removing the line of demarcation between indoor/outdoor cells. Still can't animate for shit. Still using TERRIBLE lip sync.
Still, it's not actually about size since Just cause 2 is massive and full of bugger all. In fact it's impressive that fallout 4 has managed to compress all that nothing into such a small space. Efficient!
Skyrim is also about 13sq miles if you want a video game comparison.
I'm not droning, in fact I'm incredibly worried about a game I was once excited for. The dialog stuff was bad enough, then there was the shitty ai and 7 year old graphics. I just want to know how long it takes from the longer half and not the one that gets cut off by water 3/4 of the way.
I still can't believe retards actually thought '[Glass Him]' meant give him a drink lmao
So? Skyrim had Fallout 3's lockpicking. Fallout 3 had similar loading screens to Oblivion (art with info in the corner/bottom). Elder Scrolls and Fallout have built off each other.
Does anyone know if the voiced player names are released yet?
A voiced protag is something I'm not entirely comfortable with, yet the idea of havig my name spoken to me sounds pretty cool.
Just wondering is
Jackwas in it?
Specific spots, but there was already 2 pretty early on. The Sanctuary/player character home is one. Then that Red Rocket gas station is another.
Anywhere there is a red workshop table, you can do settlement shit.
It worked on Alpha Protocol because dialogue there is a form of battle. Dialogue combat, so to speak, because of its setting. It won't work outside that game.
But you're right. HR did it right.
Oh fuck me, I'm retarded. I sort of just skimmed your post and thought you were asking about the voice actors for some reason. The VA of the female player is the same as that of Jack from Mass Effect 2, so I assumed that's what you were talking about.
>I lack common sense
How big part of the story is this baby?
Will the game burden you with having a child?
Any spoilers on this, I though it died in the vault?
>Children are scaled down adults
I thought they stopped doing this shit during the Renaissance
When you're frozen, you are temporarily unfrozen for long enough to see them open your wife's chamber, take the baby from her, and shoot her. You then refreeze, and unfreeze again with everyone in the vault being skeletons. Your character finds out later (since it's obvious to any player with a brain) that there was actually like an 80 year gap between those two thaws, and at the end of the story quest line you meet your son as a dying old man.
>wearing leather jacket
>Taking 4 hits from a laser rifle
>Absolutely no HP loss
why are molerats so cute?
One of my daughters is named Jack.
Well, legally it's Jaclyn, but nobody calls her that. She strictly goes by Jack, except for the occasional 'Jackie', but she only lets me, her mother, and her sisters call her that.
Just messing with you anon.
It's actually a pretty nice homage, I guess, to how you first see him as a baby. Even as an old man, he just lies there in bed, you walk over to him and press X to
>entered the wrong time for release at the hq....on purpose.
Anon you are messing with an absolute madman!
look I'm not gonna play the game, I have no interest in it after 3, I'm just curious about this retarded plot point and I haven't followed the release at all so I have no idea who 'the guys at MIT' are.
>who are 'they'
Institute scientists, I believe.
>why did they thaw you out just to watch
I don't know. It was either a convenient malfunction, or it has something to do with them making the android version of you (you're already an android by the time you get thawed out the second time).
>and why did they kill your wife and take the baby anyway?
Don't know why they took the baby, probably related to android stuff, but they kill your wife/husband because she/he was resisting and not letting them take the kid.
MIT, as in the tremendously famous university. It's referred to as 'The Institute' post-war, and is a haven for continued scientific advancement after the bombs dropped. By the time of Fallout 4, they've made life like robots designed to imitate humans perfectly. The poorly kept twist in the story is that you turn out to be one.
One of the first mods I downloaded for Skyrim was a better quest description mod, it made the vague descriptions detailed enough so you could figure out for yourself what to do, instead of following "le epic quest arrow". I fucking hope there'll be a "better conversation" mod or something which will change the text to be less vague.
>Have you seen my keys?
If anything you should be roleplaying Big Boss, more fitting in a survival setting, looking for his own son, being even more of an autist.
