    I am going to be massively disappointed if they do base it in Boston.

    Fuck Boston.

    Which is my default setting for any vidyagame release nowadays (except SOMA, that's a preordering since the ARG was so fun)

    Tell you what, let's make a wager of it: I won't give my usual speech for this one, but if it's shit then I will be twice as smug at the saps who bought it sight-unseen.

    A game in the TES engine won't be playable for ages after release anyway, it takes time for someone to fix most of the game breaking stuff.

    Was Fallout 3 shit? I think most would say no.

    Was Fallout NV Shit? I think most would say no.

    Was Skyrim shit? I think most would say no.

    Lets be fair here, Bethesda's recent run of games in the TES/Fallout mold have all been worth buying.

    Hard to see Fallout 4 being a big bag of shit tbqh.

    I'm not arguing that it would be m8. I'm offering an alternative to my usual rant against pre-ordering, my opinion of which is the same regardless of whether I think a game will be shit.

    I could explain but that would defeat the purpose of offering the wager.

    This. The games don't come out on the regular, and have been consistently good.

    Applying the arguments from some reskinned, yearly-piece-of-trash, studio-vomit like CoD or Battlefield don't really apply here tbh. This isn't even a case of a beloved franchise, but shit developers like EA and Battlefront - this is Bethesda AND Fallout.

    That said, there's a first time for everything.... BUT FALLOUT 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I generally agree, pre-ordering is often silly, especially on unknown risky over-hyped titles. I almost never pre-order. Hell, last Pre-Order was World of Tanks actually, lol! Panzer V/IV is go!

    But it's not always a bad idea.

    Known quantities are often safe enough. No one (I can't fathom) is crying tears of rage today because they loved Witcher 1 and Witcher 2 and so pre-Ordered Witcher 3, are they?

    I think the same principle applies here: If you loved Fallout 3 and NV, you're probably (what, maybe 75%?) likely to be safe pre-ordering Fallout 4. Odds are, they're not going to put out such a POS, or something so crazy, than series fans will hate it.

    Before we decry pre-ordering FO4, lets see what we see, eh? Plenty of room for bitter later. Let some of us enjoy our flaming optimism and joy for a day or so.

    Am I the only person who found Skyrim a boring repetitive ugly piece of shit?

    I mean, you can sperge about "MUH MODS" all you want but if a game requires 400 user created mods to not be a pile of ass, it's a pile of ass.

    Finished the campaign (but not the DLC) in F3, thought it was a bit meh overall , did most of the DLC in New Vegas, enjoyed it more, but never bothered to finish the main quest.

    Big fan of the first two games. Currently enjoying my first playthrough of Fallout 2 in a decade or so.

    Not sure if I'm excited about this or not.

    This.

    You'll have to wait for:

    The Unofficial patch
    Mesh / model fix
    Texture fixes with proper compression
    Probably a grid / LOS load fix

    Minimum.

    Fallout 3 was too easy once you got to level 20 and started wearing power armor. The difficulty of Fallout: New Vegas was pure sadism, even with good gear. Never bothered with GRA ammo, heard Dragon's Breath shotgun shells were quite good.

    So, hoping for something between the two.

    What if, it's something like GTA: San Andreas was.

    "Oh it's Los Angeles."

    "No, it's Las Vegas!"

    "No, it's the desert/rural areas!"

    ...and ofc it was all 3.

    What if, people are all derp'd up for Boston, and don't realize it's basically "Fallout: Northeast"

    Like, what if it was Boston/NY/NJ etc etc?

    This is next gen stuff. I dunno about the xbox360/ps3 derpage, but on pc, xbone, and ps4, I can see it being tons bigger.

    For example:



    The gaps there were HUGE in comparison to how big it gets.
