What if the next Fallout game was set in London, could it work and what sort of characters would we have?
Like I've said before I think they'd get away with it more if it wasn't a main game. The main games should keep to the US but with the spin offs they can experiment. There was the European War before the Great War so obviously things were bad before the bombs fell but even then it's said the UK was hit harder then America so it could be really run down. This also lets them add new companies like a rival company to RobCo Industries (meaning new hacking) and General Atomics (new robots) Then you have new divisions of Vault Tec (or maybe a blend of a rival British company with different looking vaults), Red Rocket, Nuka Cola (Iced Tea). The list goes on. You could really have new ways of looking at Fallout and exploring the world. Plus it would put light more of the European War which I want to know more about.
We don't generally drink iced tea- that's for savages.
No but you know they are going to do the stereotypical thing if they did do London
We drink hot tea with milk.
From what i have heard in the lore it makes it sound like Europe was leveled from the war and is non-existant. Maybe a prequel leading up to and through the war all the way til the bombs drop.
Takes away the overall atmosphere, but sure. Go ahead.
i dont get premature articles like these
Fallout is 1950's Americana, it plays up the atmosphere. Fallout is not going over seas.
Where do all the Irish and Scandinavian characters come from? Canonically Europe is so bad they are still emigrating to the U.S. as best they can.
Cos Bethesda doesn't care about the lore nor logic(see also: kid in the fridge). 200 years of US wasteland and Cait, Bobrov bros etc can retain their grand-grand... parents original accents...
Uh, Beth misses a lot, but I specifically remember Colin Moriarty in 3 briefly mentioning his immigration as a boy and having to work his way up in the world. Context implies the same for the Nordics in 3. The problem lies in the relaying of information in their games. I'll look to it in Fallout 4, but they HAVE been missing some lore-breaking things recently.
As an Irish person myself I can't describe how much I hate finding Irish people in Fallout games. Especially when they have Lucky Charms accents. *Eats a raw potato*
Why stretch an IP that has 50s US at its core. New Metro game takes place in US soil, makes any sense? That said as long as Beth doing Fallout games you can expect anything/any location/internally inconsistent lore etc. long as it makes money, cos its fun, it works.
A lot of what makes Fallout..Fallout is the atmosphere of 1930's-40's United States. I don't oppose broadening their horizons to do another country and what not but it wouldn't feel Fallout-esque if it was in the UK or any other country for that matter. It's just a hard atmosphere and vibe to recreate using another country. If Obsidian attempts the next Fallout it should be in New Orleans which was their original intent.
Late 1940s-early 1960s. Mostly 50s-esque. America most certainly was not so spirited at the height of World War II.
Fallout is a dark satire of 50s America, the self-fulfilling prophecy of destruction that society thought they KNEW was going to happen in their lifetime. A nation once filled with white picket fence suburban 'nuclear families,' as it were, good times filled with mass hysteria and expert propaganda, that just MAYBE, was incidental. Decades or centuries later, depending, life after the bombs still carries that unmistakable 50s architecture, ruined.
We'd have Nuka Tea and radioactive faggs.
Fagg means cigarette
Radioactive or not they still give ya cancer
Not for nothing, gotta be careful what you say cause although Im not, there could be gamers offended by the last part of your comment.
Why does every single game that is set in England have to be set in bloody London? No disrespect intended for the people of London. But it is so boring. There are loads of other cities in England you know.
Yea, but London is London. I wish I could do all of U.K soo much history there.
There's thousands of years of history all over the UK.
Its the city you identify with when you think of the UK.
Yeah it's like doing New York over and over again. Gets really old and boring.
What if it was set in Tokyo? know it kills the MURICA shoot kill shoot... puppYYYYYYYYY oh shit.. shoot and kill and shoot and kill atmosphere... but still
The whole idea is Americana, so idk if they'll ever venture outside NA.
It sounds like Obsidian wants to make the next Fallout, naturally I think they are going to focus on the new California republic this time. Take us to places found in fallout 1. It's just the logical next step.
I think it'd be fun to see London in a Fallout game. I'd happily play.
What if... no
Why not put it in fallout 1 and 2 time eh, 3 and 4 felt kinda generic.
