    <p><a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/video/hack-fallout-new/706323" target="_blank">Watch this trailer</a>, as far as I can tell it's about decapitating things with your gun. People are still looking buttfuck ugly, so we can conclude that Fallout: New Vegas is staying true to the Elder Scrolls formula.</p>

    I always thought the people in Morrowind looked fine but they started to look awkward in Oblivion.

    yeah very "fine" and walked like there was a dildo up their ass.
    At least 1 thing oblivion did right was character models and graphics overall

    Yeah, haha... ha. They did walk rather oddly but I didn't have any real issue with the models themselves. Sure they weren't amazing but I didn't mind them in the least when I played it.

    Morrowind at least tried to make most of the races distinctive looking.


    Whereas in Oblivion all the elves looked just like the Imperials, only colored differently. A High Elf was an Imperial with a cold and an even larger forehead.

    I think that's what made them look so odd to me. They all seemed to have unusually wide faces. I though the imperials looked decent enough but you described perfectly what made the elves look odd. I was also upset about the lazy changes made to the beast races.

    Dear Pedobear, it looks like shit. Has FO3 looked this shit? I've forgotten. Especially that talking whore at the beginning. Felt so like late 90s. For fuck's sake, how long has it been since Bloodlines came out, now? They are not even trying.

    Also, the ragdolls... :facepalm:

    It's amazing how such a whackjob of a game can sell so many with marketing.

    LOL. I've tried to finish Oblivion several times and each time, either the terribly uninspired shit graphics or the equally dull gameplay put me off.

    I guess I should actually watch the video...

    ...wow, that does look a little bit bad. The physics, kill cam and lighting are all still wonky but that's to be expected. They even included tacky strippers but at least I can dress up as a crazy spaceman and as if mirelurks weren't annoying enough enemies we can now look forward to lakelurks (what a great fucking name). The wasp/winged things look good though and the kids eating the stupid looking rat seems neat to bad it's probably a scripted gimmick.

    They stop me every time and I like pointless exploration.

    Looks just as horrible and retarded as original.

    It will be fun to watch retards who like to bash Bethesda praise Obsidian for raping the shit out of Fallout series.

    I was hoping it would be decent because I actually had some fun with Fallout 3.

    LOL it even has your character wearing a bear head helmet, dressed medieval style and carrying a huge anime sword - in 2200+!

    Truly it is an addon to Failout 3.

    And the animations, the combat, the models, the fugliness of it all - teh horror

    I mean for fuck's sake it looks like some cheap trash made by some obscure eastern european studio - this is a new low even for Obsidian

    I like the spaceman suit better but who doesn't want to be a wild-man barbarian? It's actually one of the least lulzy things I've seen in the game so far.

    * I thought the big sword was a hockey stick with something taped to it?

    Stupid work - can't watch the trailer to see if the camera has been fixed. What do you say bros, is it now preferable to play in 3rd person?

    Like most of the older players, I was furious when F3 came out. As I watched this video, I just :lol:

    I don't know what that means.

    I was :lol: too, because it looked like regular xcubicle action game and pity the fools who play this as next-gen "RPG".

    I just wanted to say that I watched the video on my mom's laptop. it is nothing like the amazing new vegas footage i saw.

    1. video was captured by a moron with chucky cheese hardware (traded it in for tickets won from.. gasp.. console games and literally pop-a-mole games)
    2. guy is a fallout 3 moron. there are non-moronic fallout 3 fans. but this guy loves fallout 3 for all the wrong reasons. how dare he capture the same shit that fallout 3 already had but in new vegas
    3. lots of good shit atmsophere . even more quirky lighting and stuff but you will come across amazing effects!

    i will be getting the game soon.

    Wat. Models in Morrowind were extremely shitty. The environment actually looked nice, until they fucked that too with Oblivion and F3. Bethesda, Bethesda never chances.
