I care. ISOMETRIC OR FAIL.

you going to have to really fucking hope so, i highly doubt they will go to make an isometric online game. I HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt it.

(i know, it is NOT fallout without that view, it would be killer if it was going to be.)

Chris Taylor and Jason Anderson are a refreshing addition, but can they turn the shit into anything decent?
At the current rate, WoW (or basically everything I liked about it) is also going down the shitter so I need a new MMO, provided that I keep playing the genre.

However, I wish they could muster the best of the original Fallout squad + ex-Troika, now I'd even support that shit with donations etc. I've been playing Vampire again recently and I'm in the middle of getting hold of Arcanum again. What Troika created in their short duration as a company is some of the best that the cRPG genre has had to offer. EVER. Not like the garbage that we get spoon-fed nowadays.

I've been watching the Fallout 3 gameplay trailers and everything can just be summed up in one word:
INANE
Seriously, I could write more interesting, enticing and capturing dialogue five minutes before I take my lunchbreak. It's boring and uninventive. Lack of character has been compensated for by copious amounts of swearing.

It could be possible that they aren't doing a full on retail release type of mmorpg but one of those online type of mmorpgs like furcadia or some Korean one. It would be a hell of a lot cheaper for them and could be fairly quick for them to get out.



Long time no see, Mr Carrot.

They have a deadline for release before they lose the rights to bethsoft, so it'll probably get rushed horribly even if it does get released in time.

What were the specified requirements again? At the time they seemed like impossible for IPLY to fulfill.

It's likely they'll release a horrible pre-alpha to the market prior to the deadline and just improve from that.

Pretty much the trend for most MMO's these days. Age of Conan should have been delayed another 4 or 5 months until they worked out some really basic bugs, for instance.

I was surprised when I heard that most of Warhammer Online seems to be perfectly in order.
It seems that it's no longer acceptable for massive games to be flawed when released, because then you get the AOC problem which generates a lot of hate hype.

But then devs just cut content instead, like Warhammer did, major cities and classes.

Isometric my ass.
I want to shoot children and comment it with ice cold one liners, thus winning a special place in the hearts of the entire community.

I won't say "perfect" but it certaintly is relatively bug free. There's still afew weird bugs that the next patch or two should fix. The nice thing about WaR compared to Age of Conan is you don't have 60 patches per night that you have to download. Also, the PVP WORKS. The fact that those missing classes will be offered for free via patches is also kinda neato burrito since two of the classes I wanted to try got cut.

The swearing bothers me, too. It's not the "rugged men of the woods, who throw a curse every now and then to enhance their words" type of swearing, more like the "teenagers hanging at the mall and going over and over about the new naughty words they've learned".

There's something to be said about planning though.. like I said, they cut off content, instead of cutting polishing like AOC did, and most MMO's before that.

That screws up the balance depending on their master plan. Will the introduction of new classes throw the game? Will they be balanced by the time they're released?
Isn't it unfair that some looked forwards to these classes from the beta, and wont get to play them before everyone else is miles ahead?

Time is limited, and being cut off from your friends is not fun at all while leveling.

"It's done when it's done" is a good timeline. At least it doesn't insult gamers for buying it from the start.

Fallout is dead, and it should stay that way. the 3 year resurrection window is long gone.
