    Bethesda have released the Fallout "please stand by" image before to get everyone hyped for a new installment, I am sure. I just hope it's something new rather than a remastered version of something earlier, and that if it is new, it doesn't involve anything like Preston's "save a settlement" quest generator - my god, please no...

    Oh god another MMO that I am going to initially not be interested in then end up sucked into, I may need to clone myself. I hope Fallout would be open world PvP though. Not that I want that in games necessarily, but it would seem fitting for the fallout universe.

    Mind you just because people on Twitch said it does not mean it is true (unless it is Bethesda themselves LOL)

    So, things to note from the trailer:

    The song indicates it'll be in or around West Virginia. Maybe. I mean, it's just a song but why choose one about a specific location?

    The graphics: the character texture is bunk as usual, but the vault textures/models are different - it seems a little more stylised than the usual games. Very slightly more cartoony (but not full on cartoony). I like that. They're not going to achieve perfect graphical fidelity because of the sheer scale of their games, so constantly chasing realism ends up with a lot of stuff looking shitty. Go more stylised and you can a) save a little on texture overhead, and b) avoid the janky crap.

    Anyway, I hope it's not an online thing but considering the time frame I think it's likely.

    Kotaku says they've heard it's an online game too.

    My interest has waned.

    meh I don't really do online rpgs. I'm still looking forward to New California tho, that'll be quality. I've heard whispers of dual wield :cool:

    from someone on Reddit:

    Vault 76 is one of the Vault-Tec vaults shown on the computer in the Citadel.

    The Vault-Tec terminal in the Citadel lists Vault 76 as a "control" vault, with 500 occupants. The vault was designed to open 20 years after a nuclear war, and was among the seventeen known control vaults, meaning that it was used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults.

    --
    I think that's in fallout 3
    the pip boy shows 2102 so earlier than other games - some people are suggesting this could be taking the building stuff from fallout 4 and making it the centre of the game - building the first settlements in the post war era, which I would love.
    I too hope it's not an online mmorpg.

    I've not played 4 yet, but now I have a laptop that can run it I plan to correct this soon.

    Can any of you recommend a controller for laptops? I don't think I'll be able to play this without one. A lot of websites seem to say the xbox1 and PS4 controllers but I'm reluctant to spend £40 plus. I think £30 would be reasonable. Anything cheaper but still good would be amazing.

    As for MMO's not keen so I'll probably skip this.

    I got an XBox controller for Skyrim but tbh I thought it was a waste of money. Mouse and keyboard is still superior IMO, even on a laptop.

    Hmm yeah I'd read this. I've not really got anywhere that I can use my mouse. At least not for first person games. I'll give it a go though and see how I get on.

    I'm hyped either way, will just have to work out how to split my gaming time (or clone myself) if it is an MMO

    Yeah, i've already taken the day off work for this, even though it's online...

    If it's online I'm not really interested, loved the atmosphere of Fallout 3, New Vegas was great too, 4 was a bit of a let down, but I mostly enjoyed it, I think.

    So i've got the beta because I pre ordered it. Have played a couple of hours, so only really just beyond the initial tutorials, it's pretty cool. More FO4 than NV though. Online is pretty seamless, and you don't have to interact with other players unless you want to. Beta is pretty glitchy/jerky at times, looks to be more a rendering thing than online jitter imo. Couple of control changes are confusing, and vats doesn't slow time like it used to, so it's more 'real time' than before.

    I was given a beta code and I have been playing every beta session - will be buying it.

    It's more Fallout, nothing too horrendous in terms of "ugh, other people in my game" (massive map 4x the size of Fallout 4 map, with 24 players max in one instance).

    It is a little difficult at the moment to be social with people you actually would like to be social with in game, that is where it is failing a bit tbh. As in I log into game and I am not put in the same instance as the 1 person on my friends list. If we switch servers to play together then one of us logs off for 10 minutes to make a sarnie, then logs back on, we won't necessarily be in the same instance *facepalm*

    I wouldn't say no to in game text chat. At the moment, my only means of communication (given that I am hearing impaired) is to do great big emotes like some cartoonish idiot.

    It's actually really weird, given that the game itself has a halfway decent captioning system, so you can actually see *Scorched: Aaargh, urrrgh, no not me" come up on screen - but there is not any text chat for us deaf-uns to talk to other players. (Am considering brushing up on my morse code so that I can communicate by flashing my pipboy light.) ;)
