40 hours later and the rose-tinted glasses fall off, and Fallout 4 doesn’t seem as great as you thought.
Well Fallout New Vegas was developed by obsidian entertainment. Rumour has it they gonna announce game next month either in PSX or Game Awards.
That would be insane. More Fallout so fast?!?! I don't know if my body can handle it. I need at least a 2017 launch.
Obsidian made a ot of games that were not in the fallout franchise. They could be working on anything, probably a sequel to something
Greeeeat, can't wait to see Obsidian's next broken and rushed game is /s
It should have been apparent that the game wasn't as great as you thought within the first hour when they gave you power armor that early. I'm sure you can think of more than 5 things New Vegas did better than Fallout 4. INB4 dislikes for the article
I thought that was pretty smart. Get to have all that power and feel like a god only to have it ripped away from you 5 minutes later when you either run out of fuel (since you don't get anymore until later, unless you know where to look obviously but that's future play throughs) or the Deathclaw pops out of nowhere and totally wrecks you. Only thing New Vegas did better than Fallout 4 was having more game breaking bugs...which isn't a good thing.
Seems someone did not read the article to see what new vegas did better than fallout 4. New vegas was also better than fallout 3 for the same reasons listed in the article. It was dumb design. Power armor is the best armor in the fallout universe. It's the reason why in each main fallout title, you don't get it until much later in the game. It's what's called end game gear, you don't give it to the player within the first hour of the game. It would be the equivalent of giving Daedric armor in TES within the first hour. Plus power armor in faggot 4 breaks lore. T-51 and newer power armor are supposed to last centuries with their own power cells, you're not supposed to be scavenging for power cells. I know you like this game or you're a Bethesda fan but please make better comments next time that don't make you look like a Bethesda fanboy
@Summons75, don't argue with sullynathan. He hasn't actually played Fallout 4. He's also 12.
You think the armor they give you at the beginning is end game armor? The T45 armor is almost the weakest power armor in the game. Some of you people obviously haven't played the game. So, why are you commenting on it? Also I'm less than 20hrs in and I have like 20 fusion cores. The game isn't stingy with them.
I've found 15 power cores but left my power armor at ArcJet early in the game.
New Vegas was terrible and Fallout 3 ran circles around it...Fallout 4 is a hundred times better than New Vegas could ever dream of being.
I wouldn't say New Vegas was "terrible", but I wholeheartedly agree with everything else you said.
I played fallout 3 first and new vegas after it and I have to disagree. New vegas characters were much better and you had many choices in the quests, so it actually felt like an RPG. Also I prefer the main story of new vegas to fallout 3. Chasing your dad who you don't even really care much, felt like a cliche, boring and just not that interesting.
And now you get to be the parent chasing the child. The whole plot lacks imagination.
Humor and the wild side is what made New Vegas better. Beth is the more serious side of Fallout, which is such a sweet pairing that I don't know what to say anymore.
Vegas made some nice changes from Fallout 3, I liked how the writing was a bit more grown up, but the game world was just boring and not very well crafted. What a total let down when you finally arrive at the strip and its a gate with a loading screen rather than a gradual approach.
Enough of the nostalgia already. If think you like NV better, go play it. I think you'll be in for a rude awakening, though. Fallout 4 is the better game, even if NV did a couple of minor mechanics better. I think Fallout 4's progression system is amazing, and makes you think REAL hard about where to spend points. NV "felt" more like the original two Fallout games in terms of tone and I think that's why some people have a soft spot for it.
More than a couple, and much more than 'minor', though.
Just for the record people, if you actually read the article you see that the author likes Fallout 4 a lot. His main concern is that the game is lacking what were great feature in New Vegas. Fallout 4 is a great game but it's not a great RPG.
Thank you. At least someone read it before commenting.
If it's not a great RPG, then there have been no great AAA RPGs in several years.
My friend, this comment is so laughably inane that I am surprised you actually typed it. Anyone with a decent knowledge of RPGs can tell you that Fallout 4 is not a great RPG. Level up system is basic and dialogue options are so ridiculously limited that it's impossible to get a real role-playing experience. In it's Vanilla state Power armor requires the use of fast travel which breaks immersion for people like me who role play hard and I don't get to play as my favorite type of characters. Ie, not generic good or generic evil. Stripping away the factions was a terrible decision as the world is no longer very reactive. Enemies are enemies and non-enemies are none enemies and by taking away the level cap there's no reason to be precise with your leveling. in short, fun shooter, terrible RPG and if you think Fallout 4 is really a great RPG you need to play more RPGs.
Fallout 4 is a better shooter, Fallout 3 and New Vegas are better RPG's.
