Looks like they're finally dumping Gamebryo for idTech 5, which is a good thing I guess.

I'm still afraid. I think I spotted a ship with jet engines?

I'm tempted to say...

Rumors?

I can't imagine the outcome if my "multiple sources" are correct and Bethesda really did decide to do something more "story focused". I expect "great things". By which I mean a pile of shit. icon_drunk

Totally underwhelmed by that trailer... icon_chainsaw

I posted this over on facebook, but will copy paste over here.

Bethesda doesn't even pretend they might have a compelling story this time around. The trailer is just straight up- PURCHASED FALLOUT FRANCHISE+BOSTON=PROFIT! It also struck me with this trailer how little FO3 affected the franchise's identity. Like this could be a trailer for the third installment. The only new element seems to be the introduction of air ships. Everything else existed in some form in FO2. Correction: airships existed in Tactics.

And if you compare the lack of dramatic quality in this trailer with that of the first New Vegas trailer I think it pretty perfectly reflects the difference in the storytelling abilities on display. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZQPmDye5xA

This new trailer was just- "these are locations in our new game. look at them. Watch this dog. This is what this place looked like before the war in case this wasn't all crystal fucking clear in the last game."

In the New Vegas trailer we see this strange cowboy robot that immediately creates any number of questions in one's mind. We see it digging out a body? wtf? Pan out in a very western setting, a desert graveyard. We are soaking in awesome western vibes now. The tone setting is super effective. Pan out more to find epic New Vegas skyline. You want to explore it all. Find out the story behind the creepy robot, and then mysterious masked Texas ranger-looking dude. wtf is his story?! and then NCR=SOLD.

-Please stand by
-Radiation King
-Ink spots
-Vault tec namedrop
-Mr Handy
-War never changes
-Power Armor
-Nuka Cola
-Vault boy
-All the others I missed

Who'd a thunk that these few individually rather irrelevant items or concepts would be turned into clichs by the artistically challenged and intellectually bankrupt to be paraded in front of an audience of undemanding, unimaginative twats? What happened to hating your parents' music? When's the last time Bethesda had an original idea? And what is the square root of all evil? duckie

It looks like RAGE. Flying ships, the lighting, the colors. All of it. Reminds me of RAGE.

I don't expect anything and I'm still disappointed. I'm at the point where I don't even get mad anymore, just disappointed.

Also, what the hell is it with the colors? I don't think I've ever seen such a colorful post-apoc wasteland since... Fallout 3? The last scene with the armor suit and the dog feels like memories from vacations. And the town looks like a goddamn fair.

Having color isn't a bad thing. It's 200 years after the bombs dropped, we don't need another green filter like Fallout 3's or just being washed out like the Book of Eli. The fact that the colors are pastel might be an issue, but having color isn't inherently wrong. The last thing we need is more brown and bloom.

It's the pastel, but I also just don't feel those graphics. They're just not Fallout. Problem?

New Vegas is good. The best Fallout game since 2, but that's my opinion. Have to put up with a good game on a shitty engine, so yeah. Mods help. Check Danny's thread in the New Vegas section if you want to spice it up.

Actually started it back the other day. Had no interwebs because I had moved, and I needed a good offline game.

It's fun, but man, I miss the good ol' "click somewhere and your character goes there even if there is a rock in between" mechanic, compared to the "press the W button forever" mechanic.

Do you REALLY want to cross a whole desert pressing W? My left hand aches man.
