Fallout 4 was created by Grey
Bethesda put up a new site today with info on Fallout 4! ( www.fallout4.com )

Are you hyped? I am hyped...



WATCH THE MOTHERFUCKIN' TRAILER



The dog! Vault 111! It's in Boston (as rumored). All this is good stuff. I am totally psyched for it. I mean, my TS icon is a vaultboy so that much should have been obvious.

I love the Fallout series and all, but this trailer seemed pretty bland. More like Fallout 3 HD. That said I'm really interested to see at what time frame this is going to take place, the past/present retrospect overlays were a nice hint to what I'm hoping is a setting closer to The Great War aftermath. Maybe also going back into the small conflicts leading up to the nuke exchange like Operation Anchorage DLC in fallout 3.

Fallout's not known for graphical fidelity. Perhaps that is a turn-off to some. What it needs is a good story and better gameplay. Even if it is FO3 HD I would be very content just to have that entire new world to explore.

They really could start anytime after the Great War since there's been literally nothing about what happened in Boston after the bombs dropped. Lotsa creative space here. Still mega-hyped.

Sorry, but Bethesda really screwed up the hype on this one. Not only was this completely expected, we knew they were going to drop this info before E3 (even had the exact date as today). I don't know why these companies are blowing their loads early and what it is about this E3. Are people afraid because more companies like Bethesda (I know) and Square Enix are doing conferences that they are going to compete for coverage. E3 is the big day for announcements, not 2 weeks prior to the show.

Looks like timeline wise they are probably starting way after the bombs dropped when some of the radiation subsided, because there is a lot of growth (foilage, grass, etc.) around the areas in the post apoc part, though I suppose it could be that the radiation just didn't take full effect yet, though I think that's unlikely since they are emerging from the vault.

I have no doubt the game will be amazing, so there is nothing really for me to get hyped over. It would have been a lot cooler if this was revealed at E3 during their conference as it is now it's just kinda a "meh" announcement. We all knew it was coming.

A quick impression on FO4...

Just hit level 60 or so. My character is a blend of melee (rarely used now though), radiation/toughness, and a sniper/gunslinger. As such I have built a fairly well-rounded character, but I find myself spending most of my time with semi-automatic rifles now due to their sheer power and a few upgrades to make them shoot .38 rounds.

At first I was all about that melee build but very quickly I found out just how difficult it was to build around that early on (at least without some first-hand knowledge of enemies I would encounter and access to decent gear). Melee build was difficult to implement as it caused me to have to spread my points between Toughness (endurance tree), Blacksmith for mods (str tree), and the actual melee damage perk itself (big leagues iirc). It's not that this is more or less difficult than trying to manage rifles, automatics, and pistols, but the problem always came down to finding the right weapon that would actually do damage.

Early on you pick up a lot of guns and ammo, though not in large quantities. I think the game tries to get you to test out lots of different stuff, which is great. Unfortunately it lacks in giving you decent melee weapons so if you go that route, you need to really bare down on the perks there, and you will find that it is difficult to deal with a lot of enemies at once right away. Guns become almost an inevitability at that point. You find the need to see long-distances (scopes),and that comes with a desire to pick-off an enemy here and there to lighten the load.

My suggestion if you're just getting into it is to try everything, but just be warned that early melee builds will lead to a lot of reloading unless you somehow get lucky and find an amazing pipe wrench or something right at the start.
