TIL that Josh Sawyer, Lead Designer from 'Van Buren' and 'New Vegas', wants to make a Fallout spin-of that is set in the Year 2050 in Europe during the resource war
Here is the articel Klick
What are your opinions on that?
Sadly, "wants to make" and "is making" are two different things. In any case, it's a cool concept.
Yeah exactly. I'm sure he'd love to make a game that spans coast to coast going into the small governments that have popped up in each little area and how they interact with each other and the sharing of power across the destroyed nation.. but he'd never actually be able to make it.
It's an interesting concept, but I'm not holding my breath on it ever happening. He's been wanting to do it for about 20 years now.
Doubt it will happen.
Chris Avellone, the writer of New Vegas, FO2, and many other games(including KOTOR2, and the new Prey), also wants to do a game set during the Resource Wars IIRC.
I'm on a quest to kill every settler in diamond city until they all respawn as gingers.
I've already cleansed once, and I'm on my second cleanse now. No one suspects a thing, and with that foolish detective gone, I have free rein over the city.
This is how Fallout was meant to be played.
You may not like it, but this is peak Fallout lore.
Thank you! How about we step into this dark alley where no one can see and discuss it further?
Have you heard the tale of Ginger City? Its story is a secret within an enigma within a legend.
After 428 hours of listening to Johnny Guitar, I have completed Fallout New Vegas 100%
Play it againnn, Johnny Guitarrrrrrrr...
I always promised myself that I would learn how to play caravan, sadly I still don't know how to play it all these years later.
For me, Caravan's like Gwent in that I've got no fucking idea how to play it and zero patience to learn.
Pazaak? That shit was straightforward and easy. It was basically blackjack.
These other card games make you think too much. Or maybe I'm just super dumb.
A guy just beat Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4, all in under an hour and 40 minutes
Saw it live on stream earlier today and he just uploaded the vod to YouTube. Really cool to watch if you enjoy speedruns and Fallout in general.
It takes me at least that long just to make my character.
Oh, this is me. Thanks /u/fingered_ for posting this. Um, yeah I speedrun all the Fallout games and like to do them back-to-back because it adds a pretty big challenge. This run I'm actually really fucking happy with. None of the runs were too bad.
We run New Vegas in Italian because the Doc Mitchell dialogue at the start is 4 seconds faster than English, and Fallout 4 is ran in French because all the unskippable dialogues come out to about 11 seconds faster than English. Fallout 3 is actually fastest in Japanese but there was never an official Japanese language released for PC so we just run in English.
Holy... Talk about optimization!
Every single city Fallout takes place in has legalized marijuana. Still think its harmless?
Fallout 1 and 2- San Fransisco/L.A. Fallout 3- Washington D.C. Fallout NV- Las Vegas Fallout 4- Boston All legalized
Heck even Operation Anchorage takes place (virtually) in Alaska.
Remember kids, marijuana, dangerous, Jet, fun!
Fallout 5: Denver confirmed.
Van Buren was going to feature Denver. The city streets were filled with vicious dogs, so scavengers had to go high into the skyscrapers for safety.
TIL, marijuana protects against radiation damage.
who hasn't huffed a little bullshit to be more productive.
Anyone else NEVER use power armor?
It's something iconic of the fallout series, and I love it aesthetically. But i've never used it for more than 10 minutes. For starters I hate slow tanky characters in any videogame. And also I hate feeling overpowered, especially when you're supposed to struggle in a nuclear wasteland and the game is already easy enough. I don't want a huge tin can around my body to protect me from those bad mean deathclaws, i'd rather find some strategy to take them out, being stealthy for example.
I haven't played Fallout 4 yet, and it sounds cool building your power armor, but it will probably be just a fancy furniture in my house.
They're like skyrim potions. "I'll save this for the hard part". Meanwhile chest filled with 2,000 potions/power cores.
I don't often use it for similar reasons. The heaviest I'll go is combat armour or desert ranger armour. Sometimes it's awesome to wear it and decimate some raiders with a minigun.
Fallout 3? Winterized T-51b all the way.
Fallout NV? I prefer the Ranger Recon armor.
Fallout 4? Well, see, thats the thing, my character runs around in army fatigues with a hodgepodge of combat armor and synth armor. I reserve power armor for when I consider it thematically correct. BOS missions? PA. Minuteman defense operations? Customized PA. For me its more than never and less than constantly, which i feel was kinda designer intent.
Do you play survival? In my experience, survival helps to knock that hoarding instinct out of you.
You see, the reason you are hoarding them is instinctual. Humans are wired to conserve resources they know that they don't need in order to avoid negative consequences. Normal mode is almost completely stripped of negative consequences, because death only brings you to the last door you went through.
So, if death came with more consequences, you would be more willing to spend resources to avoid it. I know, it seems obvious, right?
One thing I've always appreciated about Fallout: The sound of gunfire in the distance is not a soundtrack, it's a fight you can track down and join
I love hearing fighting and thinking "oh ok, let's go check that out quick
Edit: People are saying there are some gunfire background sounds in NV. Fair enough. I think you can still track down fights in the distance the same way though.
The sound of gunfire off in the distance...I'm gettin' used to it now...
I love hearing the gunfire in the distance followed by the whistling of a fatman being fired.
Its great for making things feel immersive, and not just like trouble follows only you. It sets you on edge too, like you could run into a fire fight at any moment.
In survival mode, hearing gunfire followed by an explosion.
"Nope, not that way. That's the bad part of town."
Paid Mods are coming back
CreationClub uses points to pay for mods, R.I.P Bethesda's audience LUL
Seriously what the fuck.
"We couldn't get Valve to act like a boogie man and enforce paid mods for us, so we nutted up and did it ourselves!"
Bethesda are so out of touch it's not even fuckin funny
Its some bullshit taking advantage of very specific wording, its not technically paid mods, its mods turned into micro transaction DLCs
Fallout shower thought: I love the soundtrack, but I probably wouldn't if I was a ghoul and it was all that played for 200+ years.
What bugs me is that you find new holotapes all over the place, so clearly recording technology is super common. Yet no one makes new music.
well besides, redeye, Magnolia, unnamed Chairmen singer in all roads, Patrick the Celt, Agatha, and the Lonesome drafter.
I imagine the radio stations in the Fallout Universe has a much bigger cache of music than we hear. Most stations would of had a large shelf collection of albums. We get an approximate version that was within the budget of Betheada to license.
I mean, I didn't mean literally not a single person, but point taken.
Fallout 4 was officially announced a year ago today.
Ah fuck. I can't believe I've done this.
I'm pretty sure you mean two years ago. :)
I FUCKED UP
TO THE TOP
