There's a new game coming from Obsidian that looks like a melding of Fallout: New Vegas and Mass Effect with a bit of BioShock thrown in.



Looks pretty cool but a bit lame that romancing won't be a reality in the game.

Dang I'm torn.  Their past work is impressive enough to make me want the game, but...it seems like they're going for a particular brand of "silly" that really isn't my thing.

 

I should probably just play Mass Effect.  I still haven't even tried those ones.

You absolutely should play Mass Effect! You can get it cheap on PC. It's backwards compatible on Xbox One. It's on PS3. 

It looks a little silly but I wonder if it will be like Borderlands silly or more like New Vegas silly i.e. it has a serious tone with plenty of silly moments both intentional and unintentional.

Oh my god I'm in love with this already.  The opening has the protag in a cryogenic case (a la Fallout 4) and the anti-corporate tone of the game is a not-so-subtle fuck you to Bethesda.  I feel like I'm definitely being suckered a bit by marketing, but I have high hopes.  I love the creatures they've shown, and their treatment of the frontier sci-fi setting looks amazing.

What the fuck is this half-knockoff-half-improvement of Fallout? I really do not understand why they have made this so mindbogglingly similar to Fallout and dubbed it its own property. Visually and atmospherically identical, from what I can see, despite new assets.

Because it's the original devs of Fallout, and they want to make a Fallout game, but they can't because some other company "owns" the rights to Fallout?

 

 

I read the article and actually, it sounds reallllly good.  I think I just got turned off by the video trailer.  It's very...Hollywood Marvel movie.

I'm digging it. I'll probably try this one even though Fallout games usually don't tickle my fancy.

Like, I get it, they want to make a Fallout game, but how about changing anything in how the world looks, so it's not just a copy-paste universe? Gameplay is gonna be way better, and story will too for sure, but the visuals of a game from a universe created by Obsidian have so much potential, and this property completely squanders all of that.

TL;DR Fallout is too dumb to want to just make a new Fallout.

Game still gone be hella good.

Wait, what ? I don't really understand these criticisms, it looks nothing like any of the previous fallout games to me. 

 

I definitely want this. A Fallout-like game in space ? Yes please.

ohhhhhh, wait, do you just not like Fallout?

I mean I'd probably take as many Fallout games as I can get, really.

Re:Valence/Daemon: Wait, really? Because that's exactly how I'd describe the entire world look with the exception of like 2 Bioshock-esque locales that look much more interesting and less stale by comparison.

And nah, re: pingo, I don't like Fallout much anymore. I dug Fallout 3 and NV a bit, that's about all. I've been meaning to go back and try out 1 and 2 because I got them on Steam, but Fallout 4 was miserable and any future instalment is just gonna be either this godawful 76 concept or something much, much worse. Fallout was a fine idea but it's time to take it off of life support.
