You can't walk five fucking feet in a Bethesda game without stumbling into a forbidden, undead-infested ancient sacred dragon temple (or the post-apocalyptic equivalent) filled with loot and bad guys.
If Bethesda really wanted to nail a post-apocalyptic atmosphere, they'd have to make the game world MUCH bigger (and thus more sparse.) STALKER has a fantastic atmosphere of ruin, and that's because the game actually features a wasteland. FO3 was filled to the brim with random shit. You were never more than fifty feet away from a feature of some sort, and that ruins a sense of discovery and vastness.
If I was in charge of design for FO4, I'd have a huge gameworld and vehicles.
Awesome. Thanks, postal.
As for the news itself, I gotta say, I'm thinking it's Skyrim Main Quest DLC. Both Civil War endings mention troubles gathering on the horizon, it seems like very obvious foreshadowing.
Lastly, Jesus, what a clusterfuck of a thread.
In STALKER, raiding locations is interesting, because
1. The game's realistic aesthetic gives the player an important sense of urban exploration (FO3's environments feel very video-gamey.)
2. There are interesting rewards, because good weapons and supplies are rare in other areas of gameplay
3. The locations are small, realistic, and mostly above-ground.
Therefore, exploring in STALKER is a small time commitment with varied visuals and good rewards, such as 100% condition rifles, ammo/medicine stockpiles, or new suits
In FO3, exploration mostly involved shooting some bullshit enemy like radroaches while backpedaling over 2 or 3 levels of rusty metal hallways while constantly picking up almost useless crap like plasma mines or hair pins.
I guess my biggest problem with FO3 was just how disconnected from reality the game was, though.
"thanks for saving our asses, person we tried to have murdered before, now get out before we murder you"
don't forget "son, did you nuke megaton? im disappointing in you, but for now we gotta get this bullshit working"
As much as I'd like Skyrim DLC atm, it's probably Fallout related.
Oh there's still a debate going on. Didn't realize.
I remain skeptical. Hopefully they prove me wrong.
you all got me hyped up for this Fallout 4 shit
and if it doesn't actually happen, I'll end up hating Bethesda forever.
But where did this Fallout thing come from?
That image doesn't look like Fallout.
I hate you guys.
Fallout 1 was a lot of fun for questing and exploring but I simply can't get into a game where my success is determined entirely by dice rolls. I always end up quitting after the second town.
If they do announce fallout 4. I hope the game is more creepy like the first and the second. as in you were more punished for actions you did. fallout 3 + new vegas, were to easy. and even increasing the difficulty would make it unrealistic.
They should make a game that merges the Fallout universe and the VtM universe (World of Darkness.)
