Very excited, yet sceptical. Fallout 3 was inferior to New Vegas in almost everything other than the world itself IMO, so I'm not sure on how Bethesda will do with the story and gameplay. Loved the faction system in New Vegas as well as the weaving narrative, Fallout 3 didn't have any of that. I hope they learn lessons from Witcher 3 as to how to create side quests and not chores.

Expecting a whole new engine as well, as Skyrim really just showed the limitation of the Gamebryo engine even when it is heavily modified.

Fallout New Vegas felt like an expansion pack and while it is narratively complex, I don't think that complexity elevated its themes or story: it was all very bloated and self-indulgent, while Fallout 3 was tight and holistic. Sometimes less is more, and I'd hope that FO4 has more focus than NV.

See I felt the opposite, the thing that kept me playing New Vegas was the story and how it felt like your characters decisions and allegiances truly mattered in the story and the way the world was built. Fallout 3 to me at least, felt like I was taking two narrow linear paths which was just good vs evil in Brotherhood vs Enclave in how they presented it.

Just seen the trailer. Doesn't tell us much but enough to get the excitement going.

Rumour is there'll be a 20-30 minute demo at their E3 conference and end with a confirmed release date for Q4 2015.

It makes sense with games like this, long-winded hype-building and marketing just isn't necessary.

I hope there's not a long wait, if it turns out it's a 'Fall 2016' release or something I will want to hibernate until then.

I might need to calm down and I'm pretty sure I'd pillory any fucker for overhyping a cinematic trailer for a series I wasn't overly fond of BUT THAT TRAILER WAS THE FUCKING BOG'S DOLLOCKS.

Shanty town Boston with noir vibes, airships, Vault 111, Brotherhood mech, the flashback framing device and dem. textures. doe.

I really hope the juxtaposition of Day Zero Boston and post-apocalyptic Boton isn't just to put the themes of this instalment in a relatable framework and we get to experience the heyday of the universe's retro-futurism in actual gameplay.

Mate, I share your excitment and all, but you're missing the most important part. The pet doggy. I shall call him Leonard.

Christ on a bike, fucking hell!!!!!!!! Finally. Trailer is the dog's bollocks. Just can't wait. I hope they don't fuck it up like New Vegas. Well not really a fuck up but poor compared to F3. Yeah Ste, I loved the inkspots in F3. Hope there's some Andrews sisters tracks on it too.

Yeah good games, but incredibly dated now. You might be able to find them on GOG but I'd imagine you'd need some kind of emulator or platform to play them on newer Windows

Well fuck them and fuck you! :lol:

Ok, well let's just get down the the nub of this issue then shall we? I didn't like New Vegas because you couldn't craft weapons like you could in FO3. Also, what was the point of dismantling bullets into smaller constituents to make fuck knows what? I don't know one person who understood all that shit or the point of it. I wasn't impressed with the storyline and the playlist was utter shit compared with Fo3. These are my valid reason for preferring Fallout 3 to Fallout New Vegas. my good friend. I challenge you to not only refute them but put forward a cogent argument as to why New Vegas is better than 3.
