Everything Fallout, the post-apocalyptic retro-futuristic role-playing game


#325

I played alot of F4 and still play it from time to time, but I barely do quests because the rpg is really weak. FNV is the superior even though it feels a bit woody compared to current gen games.


#326

Speaking of which, while I don’t have a pc version, I did hear about a FO4 to NV conversion mod. Should be fun to play NV with 4’s more refined shooting.


#327

Yeah well I would not put the hopes up, such huge projects usually dont make it to a finished state.


#328

I dunno, Fallout modders are some dedicated motherfuckers…


#329

Have to agree with @Cerb. I’ve heard of some pretty big projects come out of the fallout community. One of the reasons it has one of the best modding communities.


#330

Well let’s be optimistic then. Whole NV in 4 seems just a bit bigger than any mods I knwo from the community. :slight_smile:


#331

NV over 4.

NV mods: Just 30

4 mods: had about 200 mods

searched the forums, this seemed like the appropriate place to share this bit of news :sunglasses:

this looks to me like a new game, not a drawn out teaser for a remaster or fallout shelter… perhaps the long awaited, and highly asked for, fallout online? i get a mardi gras vibe from it, perhaps we get a bayou adventure??

thoughts?


#333

Oh Oh promising! What is that on the top edge?


#334

A Trip to the Bayou has been requested for quite some time. If this is a new Fallout, I hope they improve on the aspects that FO4 fell short on as well as improve some of the better aspects.
Fallout 4 was a bit of a let down and I very rarely even touch it anymore. What exactly gives you the Bayou Vibe btw?


#335

i actually still play it… the story is what let me down, especially the dialog branches… never had any charisma or strength checks… i really enjoyed the combat tho, i thought it was vastly better than 3 or NV, i could actually play it as a FPS and where i aimed, is where the bullets went…

yea, i would love to play something in the deep south, maybe hearing some deep southern blues on the pipboy would be nice :sunglasses:


#336

I hope not, it’s enough with COD BO4 is ditching single player :cry:.

Agree, the settles and the faction thing killed the game for me, I didn’t even finish Fallout 4, tried 2 times, but the attack on settlements and choose between 2 factions to survive was not fun for me at least, I hope they drop settlers in Fallout 5.

Yeah, it became annoying pretty fast, I liked Fallout 3 better, not so crowded with other humans :joy:.


#337

i really liked all the settlement stuff… perhaps if they could defend themselves better without me having to intervene every time would be nice, lol…


#338

oh sorry, i forgot to reply to your last line… i get that vibe from the color scheme of the please stand by image… maybe it’s just me, but it has a new orleans mardi gras color scheme going for it… or maybe its more vegas?


#339

I do agree there are still quite a few aspect of Fallout 4 that I did enjoy. The settlement system, although tedious, was an ok addition as well as being able to build your own home and I did enjoy the shooting, although I do wish some of it was impacted by your skills and perks.

Story and Dialogue was a huge let down for me. I tend to play alot with charisma but in all honesty the RPG elements of the game suffered greatly due to the changes. I really dislike how they tried to replicate Mass Effects Dialogue system.


#340

the only way to get anything done in 4 was to be charismatic… i miss the intimidation or intelligence checks that new vegas has…

i also really liked the weapon modding, and the general look of fallout 4 too… the jump to this gen was a vast improvement IMO…

again, i hope it’s a new fallout, but we’ll see… i’m sure there’s an announcement coming very soon, last time they did a teaser like this, we got a trailer a few days later i do believe…


#341

If I remember, while it could be a generic “PLEASE STAND BY” screen, it looks to be a coloring of Fallout 3/NV’s Stand By screen.


#342

the fallout series has used this same splash screen for all their games (at least since 3) with different hues and such… 3 had a greenish hue… new vegas was more brown… and 4 was gray… never really seen one with this much color to be honest… not sure if it’s what i said, new orleans, or perhaps another visit to new vegas, or perhaps something like miami (which i know there’s a massive mod being made for miami currently)…

never know, but i am so stoked, i hope it’s a new game, fallout is my favorite series… i’d be a bit disappointed if it was anything less…


#343

Erm…


#344

has it done anything yet tho? i heard that was going on… that lemon looking thing on the right seems new…
