    Every Fallout Game Portrayed By Looney Tunes

    Since everything about Fallout has become one big shitshow, I decided to cartoonize it a little more. By the way, the thumbnail shows my actual personal rankings of the game.

    Why bugthesda can't design a proper gun?

    Lets look to bugthesda games with guns. Fallout 3 : 10mm pistol lacks sights, the "chinese pistol" is in fact a mauser C96 but somehow uses 10mm ammo, a "hunting rifle" in .32 cal. To hunt what? Rabbits? SMG is only available in 10mm, no 9mm and .45 ACP the most used cartridges of SMG's IRL...

    How the illusion and myth of Todd Howard as a good game designer came to be - Todd's Bethesda has never been a quality developer

    In this post, I assert that what Bethesda has done in recent years is no different than what Bethesda ever did under Todd Howard, and provide a detailed explanation of what I believe is why Todd's Bethesda was ever (undeservedly) regarded as a quality studio. As I say in this post, each-next...

    Elder Scrolls Rumor: The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion Remake from Virtuous Game - coming late 2024 or early 2025

    Why remake Oblivion (generic European medieval fantasy) first instead of Morrowind (unique setting) I wonder? Maybe Morrowind is next??

    Gamebryo is not bad

    I've had the realisation that the engine Bethesda uses since Morrowind in every game they develop (I think Starfield also has it) it's not actually that terrible. During the years I've seen people online claiming that this engine is outdated, or even that it's the cause of why these games tend...

    Elder Scrolls TES Skyrim: A quick 20 hour restrospective

    Friendly reminder to take two days off, buy a six pack of Monster, and watch this monocled review I am just worried it says Act 1, so it might not be full single 20 hour video.

    Elder Scrolls How would Skyrim have been without the Decline caused by consoles?

    Here is how I think : Attributes will be part of the game. And impact the gameplay way more. Vampires will take sun damage as Daggerfall, Morrowind and late stages on Oblivion Cities will gonna be open like on morrowind hence levitation/mark/recal and other spells would exist You would't be...

    Firearms in RPGs. The best and worst depictions.

    UNDERRAIL One game which I really loved how they dealed with firearms is the underrail. You have so many depth in that game, for example, a .44 magnum revolver can "hold" multiple rounds of JHP, W2C or Explosive rounds and you can load ammo by ammo in any weapon, you can load you revolver with...

    Elder Scrolls Todd Howard Appreciation Thread

    I used to dislike Bethesda after Oblivion and Fo3, but now that triple-A RPG industry is in the gutter, Todd seems like the only savior. You all know the history. Bioware sold out to EA and immediately went gay, each of their new games after DAO turned out to be worse than the previous one...
  14. The next Elder Scrolls game mechanics

    Describe them. Here are some thoughts. - the main focus will be the three coloured rainbow (RGB) with other colours present in tge background - you will no longer be able to select an attribute pount upon leveling. It will be done automatically based on the skills youve been using - perks will...

    About the Big Total Conversion Mods like Skywind/Skyblivion

    I don't get the appeal of them. What's the point in porting a game to a newer version of the same flawed engine? It seems like a big waste of time and energy, especially so when Elder Scrolls VI eventually comes out, all just for the sake of novelty.

    Elder Scrolls The appeal of Skyrim

    I was asked recently what i was that i really liked about Skyrim. Apparently many people misunderstand Skyrim here on this forum. I really think it is unfair that many people don't consider it an RPG, or consider it garbage. So i decided to start a new thread stating what i believe is the real...

    Fallout What does Fallout make you think?

    Please, if you want, tell everyone your thoughts in detail. Personally, I am a bit of an Interfag. I have always loved the originals the most, and they are my favorite video games ever. I do also love NV.

    What do you think TES6 will look like?

    It is almost a definite fact that Bethesda wants to create a sequel to Skyrim, given how well that game sold; we have heard that they are working on it from a few sources, but we know little more than that given the amount of conflicting rumours around the place. It is also likely that they will...

    If you could help design TES6; what would you do?

    Let's imagine you were hired by Bethesda as a consultant to help work on the mechanics of TES6 because "some external inspiration is needed" (i.e. they are in development hell) You cannot be fired short of killing Todd Howard, and your suggestions will be given weight but are still subject to...

    So why aren't Elder Scrolls or any rpgs made using the procedural tech that FUEL used?

    If you remember FUEL, that barren apocalyptic racing game with nothing to do... .It has quite a detailed and varied world. If we can use that tech wouldn't it be much easier, rather than wasting time on making wilderness they can devote the time to build detailed cities and complex interactions...
