    All those sound files on the tumblr site make it seem like there'll either be some fancy sound recordings to find(or maybe finally that promised before Fallout 3 ability to tune for various signas and recordings that they "didn't get around to implement") or, which is pretty possible considering RAGE engine, those are garbled fragments of some cinematic sequences that will be in the game, so FO4 may be even more linear than Skyrim main story was. :)

    If Fallout 4 has STALKER style weapons and combat I could put up with shit quests and story. Although, odds of that happening are less than o.

    No way it will have anything like Stalker combat.
    Stalker combat was on a level above other FPS's.

    And it shouldn't either, but rather move to the opposite direction from a noteworthy FPS game.

    Bethesda games are popular because they are
    - One of the best Barbie Dress Up games (only rivaled by The Sims)
    - One of the best Hiking games (rivaled mainly by GTA and its clones)
    So the logical path for F4 would be more Sims elements (is in Hearthfire DLC) and more GTA-ish elements. If Bethesda could, I think they'd improve customization and player houses, and add horses vehicles, turning F4 into Saints Row with post-apocalypse. Only they can't really do that, because that would require technical ability that Bethesda folks have repeatedly shown to not possess.

    Post apocalyptic for me is riding in a dune buggy shooting radscorpions.

    Does gamebryo even support vehicles? I have a vision of the whole thing blowing up (in mini nukular eploxians, obviously) if they even tried.

    Hell no. Not without mods, and even then Skyrim is much worse than Saints Row for example. They fixed that in Elder Scrolls Online, it will have better character customisation but this game isn't out yet and it's also MMO so we should compare it to EVE, and compared to it ESO is still shit.

    Nobody interested in customization plays Bethesda games without mods, and with mods they beat any unmoddable MMO or poorly moddable SR.

    the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that a game that needs mods to be good "beats" a game that doesn't

    Yo I didn't say that. Even getting off the line that voice acting is logistically a bad idea, just listen to the VA and VA design in their games. It is completely and transparently incompetent - the actors generally have no fucking idea what the context of any of their lines is, they use tiny pools of aggressively untalented voice actors for dozens and dozens of characters each, they 100% just get nerd celebrities of completely incidental voice acting ability to voice shit for marketing purposes... even like the meme-generating thing where they have many different actors do the same line is like, why would you ever do that, it is so god damn Dunning-Kruger, what the fuck, why are you god damn stupid kids buying this instead of at least like Saints Row or GTA or Red Dead run around fake worlds doing boring shit games, is Ziff-Davis marketing run by a tiny glowing god-alien from another dimension

    I know right

    Skyrim/fallout 3 did get marginally better though (note: compare to oblivion)

    I can't mod saints row, and I have to buy dlc :cry:

    The hilarious (or rather, maddening) thing is that their terrible voice acting (much like their 'endearing' bugs) only garners them more positive attention. Case in point: the whole arrow in the knee meme.

    Competent voice acting tends to go hand in hand with good writing, I find - you can't separate the two.

    I'm actually looking forward to F4, contrary to Shit Effect 4 or Hepler Age.

    At least there won't be any Gay sex or Feminazism in it.

    What flaws in the "perfect" Skyrim do you think previewers will say are fixed this time?

    As if console kiddies could handle STALKER's combat.
