    That is still a rumor. I mean, there was a tumlbr rumor and a very obvious fake fallout 4 announcement rumor that Beth showed journalists a trailer behind closed doors. The one where some bell chimes and it was in boston and shit.

    I really hope that rumor is wrong because it would mean the institute which would mean stupid android slave analogy which stomps on the fallout lore much moreso than the f3 main quest (if that is possible)

    Maybe, but I am not so sure (though I really want them to stop using Gamebryo or how is it called today). Fallout 3 was released in 2008 and it already looked quite dated back then (but it run smoothly on old PCs).

    Suppose they upgrade the engine a bit more from the Skyrim version (esp. better shadows and lighting system), it will look good enough for next-gen, esp. since next-gen will be riddled with what will basically be old-gen ports for the next one or two years (FO4 likely being no exception).

    Not defending FO3 really, but let's remember that the point of that quest was that they were insane assholes larping as vampires.

    If Bethesda wasn't staffed entirely by idiots, one would be inclined to think it was a subtle meta-commentary on their fanbase.

    I believe Carmack has said iD Tech 5 can't be used for open world games like TES and Fallout.

    Bethesda is about to(?) rape FO's corpse again, meanwhile STALKER 2 became a F2P shooter. It's a sad world we live in.

    Everyone, let's predict the dialogue of future Developer Walkthroughs by Todd Howard in a poor, but sadly succeeding, attempt to hype Fallout 4.

    "Dialogue now has more deep and meaningful impact in the game. It's no longer about making a black or white choice."
    *GRAY ACTIONS CONFIRMED!*

    I believe it tanked Quake Wars, too, which was an excellent, deep game plagued with performance problems thanks to "megatexture" bullshit. He basically used them as betatesters for Rage.

    Bethesda have said since shortly after buying id that they were not going to use an id engine for Bethesda Game Studios games. The core Fallout and Elder Scrolls team have a good thing going with updating the same old engine and making content for it quickly, and that shit sells great no matter what people on forums say about it.

    I think QW ran on DOOM3's engine with megatextures slapped on it.

    I'd like them to go even further eastwards to Louisiana/Mississippi.
    Drink some whisky, tune the radio to some old blues and shoot mutated alligators with a laser rifle in the swamps.

    Then again I don't really look forward to another Bethesda Fallout, no matter the setting (and Obsidian appear pretty occupied with PE).

    Yeah, but PE is for now.
    It was how long after FO3 that New Vegas came out?

    Personally, I would like to see Oregon and beyond. Would love to see New Arroyo and its tribal/vault dweller mixed people, and further north, up to Seattle and such.

    I really would't mind Texas either, all-new factions, perhaps Caesar's Legion or what remains of it somewhere in the border, and the mentioned-only "Robot City" briefly talked about in Van Buren designer docs.

    Please, no more Caeser's Leagion. I don't even want to hear about their remnants doing stupid shit. Please let them stay dead.

    Post apocalyptic midwest would pretty much look like pre-apocalyptic midwest; don't really see the appeal as a setting.

    Good Beth fanboy impersonation.

    Something has to be dead, in order for it to remain dead. Seeing as Caesar's territory is the most expansive of any faction in Fallout, even excluding the addition of the newly conquered mojave, there's little chance of that happening.

    I definitely want some mention of the legion, at least more than the half mention of Beth's brotherhood in Vegas.(Which was more than they deserved imo.)

    You really wanna go down that path? You really want to see Bethesda try something original when they couldn't even get BoS right?
