Ethan Moses gets a ahead of himself a bit and starts helping Bethesda apply the advances in Skyrim to the next Fallout game.
"What Does Skyrim Mean for Fallout 4?" that it wont look like crap.
lol that is exactly what I thought when i read the title. Looking forward to the next Fallout if it will be running on this engine or a better one.
I can't wait for Fallout 4. I am a huge Fallout fan! I hope the new Fallout games won't look ugly!
It will need to feel more like a finished product. Fallout 3 was a very interesting concept and fun while it lasted, but in the end you were left with... This is it, and what a crappy ending!? Skyrim feels much bigger then fallout 3 even if you include all the dlc. New Vegas was an interesting concept and the world felt less limited, more side quests and factions were a plus. But the story lacked in this one and the intrigue of a nuclear waste got lost. Overall, it felt like a big expansion of a game because nothing really happened that you cared about. I loved the fallout games, but they are going to have to draw me back into the story with new elements of the nuclear wasteland AND they are going to need to make it feel like a completed game, no more skimping on content for DLC, make the world feel as alive as elder scrolls.
" but in the end you were left with... This is it, and what a crappy ending!?" Try playing the game in such a way where you go off on your own and do side quests for a long while before heading back to the main missions. You won't feel like the game ends abruptly if you invest hundreds of hours into it.
@ above, In a comparison to other Bethesda games it doesn't have nearly as much content. Don't get me wrong, I loved Fallout 3 and that is why I wanted more.... Overall, I was disappointing in how they handled dlc and felt it should have been part of the game to begin with. Just look at Morrowind with Blood Moon, or Oblivion with Shivering Islands then compare what Fallout 3 had. I know I'm being critical, I loved the fallout series..... But Bethesda could have spent more time perfecting it before its release.
No, it means that it will look like a game from 2006 instead of a game from 2005 like Fallout 3 does.
actually, except for animation and characters skyrim doesn't look that much better than fallout. It looks prettier because it's not a grey-brown wasteland but on a technical level it's not that much better.
"Here’s an idea: why not aim for Fallout: Indiana?" Here's an idea: why not aim for Fallout: Somewhere Not In America?
This. One thousand times this. Let's see some France. Or Egypt. Post-apocalyptic Cairo could be AWESOME. But it'll never happen. Anyway, if we're lucky, Bethesda will pawn of Fallout 3 on another developer and stick to Elder Scrolls titles. I don't think I can wait another 9 years for a good TES game. Fallout may be fun, the the whole dead, gray-brown worlds are NOT fun to explore at all. Gotta have me some lush forests, babbling brooks, and roaring waterfalls.
I don't want to hear mediocre voice actors trying to do foreign accents.
I could be wrong, but wasn't America the only place that got nuked in the Fallout story? Obviously since America is a major part of the worldwide economy, other countries would die as well. That doesn't coincide with the name FALLOUT, though.
actually without the US economy other countries will prosper more, some will hurt for a while but none will die. But yea not exactly related to Fallout.
I read some forum posts related to that just there. Some people are saying that places like Europe and the middle east nuked the crap out of each other before the US and China war, so I dunno but even then there would be the effects of radiation.
So much of the fallout asthetic and world is tied into 1950/60s america and the paranoia and propaganda of the time I am not sure how well a fallout game set in another part of the world would really work. It just wouldn't be Fallout.
It wouldn't work...
I would like Fallout:Louisiana. It has several large rural areas throughout the state and swamps to make for some interesting mutants and creatures. I'm sure it wouldnt look like a giant desert either.
being an Indiana resident, i had to lol @ the suggestion.
That game would be a lot of walking around in very flat geography.
That Bethesda has made a ton of money so i hope they run out and get a new game engine for fallout 4 and hire more bug testers. X-Ray Engine, 4A Engine, CryEngine 2 would all be nice.
Screw Fallout... go right back to making another Elder Scrolls or give us a new IP. How about a Bethesda RPG set somewhere not blowed the F up. I don't hate Fallout, but the environment is so depressing after clocking in so many hours. Whoa... 3 disagrees already... More Fallout I say!!! The people have spoken!
I think both types of enviroments are awesome,
It's meant to be depressing, injected with black comedy. I just don't think the bethesda title did well with the 'black comedy' aspect.
Haha, I was one of the disagrees but I laughed at the edit so I'll bubble you. Bethesda showed with New Vegas that the area it's set in doesn't have to be totally blown up (although they countered that by setting it in a desert) so it may not be what you consider a depressing environment in the next game.
I agree. Screw Fallout. I'd rather see an original sci-fi IP from them or another Elder Scrolls game. Actually what I want is an online Elder Scrolls game, not an MMO but a game that has co-op as an option, set in Tamriel... as in all of it. The original Elder Scrolls game let you journey to every province and I'd like to do that again. They could release the game with a few provinces ready to go and then add the others as DLC. I was a Dungeons and Dragons nerd back in the distant past, and the ES series is the closest thing to that in videogame form, at least in my experience. The only thing missing is the ability to explore the world with a friend or three. The Skyrim followers are great, despite their at times braindead AI, but they make me wish even more for some co-op action.
They should make a new I.P. An RPG with same mechanics as ES and Fallout but set in a world where humans are enslaved by dogs. Buggy or not, that's a day one buy for me!
dogs? Of all the things in the world, dogs? hahahaaha thats pretty good man. Idk if there is a game were we are enslaved by aliens, but with the same gamestyle that could be interesting. You could work for the aliens or try and overthrow their leadership.
I hope Fallout 4 is announced at this VGA, just like Skyrim.
I wondered what setting and cities they are going to use as the setting if Fallout 4 is in production. I am kind of tired of the desert wasteland theme.
Well, all I gotta say is that Skyrim is so much better than Fallout 3 or New Vegas in just about every conceivable way. I almost wish that you could use VATS in Skyrim though.
Make a walking dead type video game i.e Skyrim graphics, Fallout 3 V.A.T.S, good story, with all the trimming and fixens of both titles. sidenote* I hated dead island.
I hated Dead Island as well. That and Brink were the biggest letdowns of the year for me. Still waiting for the zombie game of my dreams.
agreed, dead island sucked. a walking dead video game would be awesome. also, fallout 4 i cant wait :D
OMG. Yes, a walking dead game with this gamestyle would be absolutely amazing. but they would have to add more people to travel with you so you could have a band of survivors roaming the land trying to survive and find shelter.
It should be up to 4 player co-op drop in drop out and that char is ur custom char along with a caravan of npc chars that help and have their own jobs, like the old Thing game on ps2 had were if u gave ammo and such to them and helped them they were cool but if u took from there they would get weird on u, i say update a system like that so u have to kind of manage ur caravan ie maybe train some in firearms other in other skills granted this could all be optional. you can also travel on ur own and what not but i think the story should exspand more if u have the group to get their stories and side missions.
I want better graphics, more quests, expand on the factions and companions, and set it somewhere like seattle so we can have the ocean, city, and mountains. After playing skyrim id love a fallout with mountains in it.
Weird. I think fallout blows skyrim away in every conievable way.
Fallout...... With DRAGONS!!! On-Topic: After Skyrim's success, Bethesda is sure to make the next Fallout iteration a big one. Probably just as big, and just as much marketing. Lucky for us, it will hopefully come soon, as there is clearly more than enough power in these consoles to make a (even more) graphically-impressive Fallout game. *runs back to Skyrim*
Fallout 4 will be balls deep in cool stuff
For people wanting a Fallout 4 title but don't want the muddy colors I suggest taking a page from The Book of Eli make it a coastal town or something or mountainish area and have the low laying city area in the classic fallout colors, but if you venture into the forest and mountains you can see the trees, colors, mountains and color and maybe have interesting post-fallout animals or even people trying to make it in the woods, like living off the land, and you can raid their tents and moble homes. And give us some sort or transportation ie a horse or an old bike.
yeah that would be pretty good and i like how you said "take a page from the Book of Eli". very nice
Hopefully it means the bugs and issues will be minimised more at launch. Especially the PS3 crippling ones.
