There's this interesting Bethesda memo floating around. Maybe you've seen it on a fan-run gaming site or your favorite message board. It's all very exciting.
This man should be ashamed of himself for trolling people about Fallout 4 being announced every single for you trolling you deserve this (Genjutsu: Sharingan Activated) Good night and have a good sleep.
Wtf is up with these Naruto references. Wouldn't go so far as to say that he should be ashamed of himself, though he does have way too much free time on his hands. On the other hand, the sites which circulate these obvious fake rumours without checking them for a few hits and some sweet ad revenue, with no care about their readers, should be ashamed of themselves.
Truth be told..
Did that guy get debubbled just because of all the naruto references?
The man behind the rumors says, "I do it all just because I personally find it entertaining," Jesse said. "Got to do something to keep the boredom away." That essentially explains why trolls act the way they do. They are bored, likely have little in the way of a social life and unlikely to have any relationship with any females.
@Darkstares, there are female trolls too you know! =P
King_of_Nothing, I'm sure there are but it's likely very few in comparison.
An excellent article. Love it when Kotaku shed light onto the trolls' inner thinking. If major gaming sites weren't so keen to publish click-bait pieces on 'rumours', this chap and others like him wouldn't bother conjuring nonsense. Here's some insight into how the business of online journalism works: The thinking of journalists two decades ago: "Wait, they said THAT? Hold off on printing anything until we get official confirmation/denial from the company." The thinking of journalists today: "There's a rumour going around about the new Fallout. Is it true? Hell if I know, but let's put a headline up anyway; we need the site traffic."
It's always been the same with newspaper headlines and sales, especially among the tabloids. Facts are secondary to catchy concepts. Almost makes me wish there wasn't a free press.. Almost. At least in our case it's inaccurate news about gaming, and not peoples lives, politics and other things that can cause more issues.
Yes, indeed, because the Daily Mail and Fox News are perfectly fair and balanced in their news headlines.
What a absolute tool.
You know, here in the UK we have a name for people like this. It starts with a "W" and ends with an "R".
I remember back when /r/fallout was going crazy over the morse codes released everyday, then pete hines had to ruin the mood and say it was all fake, I dont care it still was one of the most fun and engaging hoax ever.
Troll Level 99. The fact that a lot of big sites ran with this information as "articles" is not only hilarious, but shows the lack of true journalism.
Eventually we'll have a real report on a new Fallout game....one day.
The funny thing is that these are games. As much as I love and enjoy gaming, I don't care about these "Leaks" Whether real or not. Doesn't anyone want to be surprised anymore? These days everyone wants to know about everything ahead of time. Seriously, if this moron gets off on spreading this crap, 1) They are a childish gimp. 2) If people didn't spread the rumors he would lose all power. But we know that won't happen!
Such a wanker
I want fallout 4 and a "new" elder scrolls game. not the online one. and elder scrolls game with game of thrones atmosphere and cities with huge castles. not some damn old Huts. windhelm and solitude is ok. but the rest i don't know. And theres no Knights in skyrim either. instead they got thanes, lame. But since daggerfall, cyrodiil, hammerfell and morrowind is already been done. only left is valenwood, summerset isle and the black marsh. I think none of these places will resemble game of thrones cities and landscapes. plus the cool armors. sad.
"Generally, most people on the internet are gullible, and fall for most things," Why? Because most of us actually are eagerly anticipating the next Fallout game? This guy is a douche nozzle, that is all.
