    Fallout 4 (video game)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE2BkLqMef4

    fallout 3 was easily one of my favorite games of the last console generation, and from the looks of this trailer, this game is going to be an instant classic with me. glad it's only being put on newer systems and pc. who else is pumped?

    Aye, it looks pretty sweet - albeit from a short trailer - but I agree, Fallout 3 was a superb game that I got many hours of gameplay out of (more than 100, IIRC), and I didn't even explore every single nook and cranny in that time!

    Hopefully it'll be solid and stable when it's released. I do worry these days that some games are just being shoved out the door before they're ready - in fact, we know it's happening (Ubisoft are fast becoming the new EA in that regard) ... so fingers crossed for a polished, stable product at release (IIRC New Vegas had an awful lot of glitches and bugs).

    Looks pretty!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    The news of the year, as far as I'm concerned

    i'm pleased that the trailer appears to be very heavy on what is likely in-game/game engine footage and not a brief 60 second cgi cutscene, like the dead island trailer and so many others these days.

    and new vegas was good, but never really grabbed me the way fallout 3 did. got all achievements and completed all dlc for 3, and still felt like i'd only discovered about half of that amazing game. new vegas was also from a different developer than fallout 3, though both games were pretty buggy at launch.

    indeed. i have read complaints online about the graphics not being quite what people expected on new consoles, but there is so much more detail and color in this world than previous fallout games and the animations appear more fluid and natural to my eyes.....and besides, there's a lot more to a great game than graphics.

    True. Fallout 3 wasn't the best looking game out there at the time, but it was the design of the world that convinced. Graphics have an impact to an extent (e.g. sometimes in GTA V you just stop to look and marvel at a wonderful bit of scenery, or a storm on the horizon), but without a good story or an immersive and well-designed world, it'd be all mouth and no trousers.

    The world of Fallout 3 told so many unspoken stories and there was a history to the places you visited that inspired you to explore every nook and cranny. Discovering hidden secrets, sometimes very dark ones, offered thrills as sizeable as a big shoot out.

    combat gameplay:

    lots of other cool stuff, too, such as customizable outposts, having your dog fetch items for you and obey commands, new crafting features.

    releasing november 10th of this year. day one purchase for me, GOTY contender for sure.

    Loving all the post apocalyptic themed games.
    Tom Clancy's The Division looks quality and a new Rainbow 6 title coming too.
    Also backwards compatability from the 360. I bought a load of 360 titles dirt cheap just before the xbone came out so I'm chuffed with that announcement

    Backwards compatibility? Eh? This is news to me ... please explain.

    *edit*

    There's also a game for your tablet that they're putting out for folks who are into that kind of thing.

    Huh ... funny how it was such a big deal beforehand (i.e. MS not offering that capability). How times change, eh?

    Tick tock.

    I've been trying to finish The Witcher 3 before this comes along but it's such a good game, that's written so well, I get distracted with 3rd tier adventures/missions.
    Fallout 4 looks special though and they've been developing Doom alongside it so the FPS elements will be stellar. Fit that into an RPG and I'm going to be lost to the game for a good 6 months

    I've still not got onto the latest generation of consoles (nor have I even decided over the choice of XB1 or PS4) - I've been playing catch up on some Xbox360 titles that I never got around to instead ... ... but with some of these titles coming around, perhaps I'll have to look into upgrading.
