The Fallout Series (1, 2, 3, New Vegas)

http://kotaku.com/5025204/can-you-possibly-handle-three-fallout-3-clips

Seriously, I can't believe how gash this game looks. To think it's being developed by the same people who made my beloved Morrowind and Oblivion.

(Third video btw).

It looks like the complete opposite of Oblivion in some ways, but in others its very similar. In other words, meh.

Also it's been refused classification in Australia = lulz.

I saw a preview in a mag and it looked pretty sweet tbh, but then again, I never played the first two/play many RPGs. Though, I'll check these vids...


/watches

EDIT: Yeah, I realyl like those two trailers but that demo vid is pretty crap. I don't think it was helped by the fact that the presenter had about the same personality as the average peanut, but I also imagine that it only showed a very small amount of the gameplay.

The AI looked pretty crap, after that whole VATs thing one of the enemies just stood still, waiting to be shot....

I'm still going to buy it, because it's Fallout for Christ's sake, but it's not impressing me right now.

On paper its up there with Bioshock. I love the premise and the demo is promising, but it really was rough as f'uck. Heres hoping its just a rushed demo and not a solid representation of in game footage. Im not backing off it until I see more.

Tbh, you can tell that the demo was rushed. Have a look at the preview demo for Far Cry 2 - that's about 20 mins long and is presented properly, and many game elements are introduced.

Here, a small battle mechanic is introduced, the scenery is pretty much the same throughout and hardly any plotline or purpose is explained. It's obviously not the best demo.

Wow the first video is AWFUL(Graphicswise). I'm a big fan of the Fallout series. I'm a bit worried now. Of course I'll play it but not sure if I'll enjoy it. The gore looks nice though lol. Don't think FPS gameplay will work out for Fallout.

edit: After watching the third vid. I have some hope.

That second trailer is mint Nice piece of retrofuturism. I've never played the original Fallout/Fallout 2, I'm wondering if they ever got re-released.....

i hope so. i don't mind dated or average graphics when done well. but this sort of looks low quality. like timeshift amd project snownlind and those others. ok not exactly that bad, but really dull

that dull might in fact be the vid, though? i'm going to take another look. that rifle looked like crap, though. not like Stalker crap, but really crap

i think it's for both.

I'm more annoyed about that targetting system and camera angles. They look like real immersion breakers.

The AI looks pretty awful as well.

Even though I still have some hopes for Fallout 3, I have a feeling that this is probably going to make Clear Sky look a whole lot better

Clear Sky is doing ok. have you seen the latest work up vid? pretty impressive

i always excuse Stalker graphics bcuz i think they're good. when i said "crap" i meant that sort of tongue in cheek because 'peeps always put them down

i especially like the graphics with the weather overhauled mod

I don't mean in graphics, I mean just as a game, as a whole. Being that they're going to both go for the post-apocalyptic setting and are coming out fairly close to each other, there are probably gonna be quite a few comparisons drawn between them. And as far as I can see, GSC are a hell of a lot more ambitious than Bethesda.

This game is coming out soon, but I'm probably gonna get Fable instead and get this eventually.

The guy behind fable (peter molineux) is a pretentious tool who is too busy getting off on himself to make a good game. Fable 1 was a total let down, and I'm certain Fable 2 will be as well.

I think you're being harsh on peter molyneux, sure Fable didn't live up to expectations but it seems that Fable 2 will most likely hold true to what is being expected of it.

The only thing which is annoying me is that from watching a lot of the Fable 2 videos on Gametrailers, it definitely seems that corners have been cut. The game just looks too casual.

But then again, the same holds true for Fallout 3.

But screw it, i'm just going to get both games.
