What are /v/'s opinions on this series? Bethesda or Obsidian/Black Isle? 2D or 3D? Do you think there is any hope for the future after the Microsoft and Bethesda merger?

 No.926

The Xbox / Bethesda merger is good news. At Bethesda's current pace the next mainline Fallout game will release near the end of this decade, Xbox isn't going to wait that long to leverage such a popular IP. Which means we are likely getting a spin-off / non-numbered game by another studio in the next few years. Fallout 76 was a disaster which means it won't be GaaS shit either.

I've heard this a lot on the internet, I guess people are hoping for New Vegas 2 now that Microsoft owns Both Bethesda and Obsidian. But I'm not gonna get my hopes up just yet since Obsidian's most recent games have been cringefests full of SJW shit. But I guess we just have to wait and see, maybe another miracle will happen as it did with NV.

 No.930

>>929
I think "New Vegas 2" is unlikely, Most of Obsidian is working on Avowed and Josh Sawyer is working on some meme project (which isn't NV2). And I think Obsidian is still interested in making another Outer Worlds game and growing that into a franchise. So I think it will probably fall upon inXile to make the next Fallout game.

 No.934

>>930
Yeah, even if they were to get the same guys together I doubt they would make an actual sequel to NV (not that it needs one anyway imo). Plus it doesn't help that Avellone got fucking cancelled recently.
>inXile
That's Brian Fargo's company right? Would be pretty based if it actually happens, but idk how much incentive they have to attempt appealing to old fans since the Bethesda games have been a lot more profitable than 1/2/NV.

I think the writing is on the wall at this point, people don't want Fallout to be a base building looter shooter. Far Harbor was much better received than Nuka World. Fallout 76 was a huge failure and embarrassment for Bethesda. Plus Microsoft has shown they have faith in the WRPG genre to make them money, otherwise why buy inXile, Obisidian and Bethesda?

New Vegas already had its fair share of SJW bullshit writing though. It wasn't quite as in your face but it was definitely there.

Was there that much? Haven't played it in a while but all I can remember personally is Arcade Gannon being gay. But I wouldn't call that SJW since it's only a small thing and doesn't define him entirely like it usually is with gay characters. Plus you can literally just murder him or sell him into slavery if you feel like owning le libs or whatever.

microsoft is literally EA, but worse. Bethesda will be dedders in less than a decade. Either that, or they'll churn out tons of crappy games before going bankrupt. Just like what happened to Lionhead studios

Fuck, I don't have that one screencapped thread over a former microsoft game studios employee with me right now.

Basically, he worked on Ryse and talked about how horrible microshit is. They make a big enphasis on "killing" other competing game franchises. For example, Kameo old X360 release game only got developed because microshit execs were told that it was going to be the "Zelda killer". You can see a clear similarities between the 2 games.

Another example: Kinect and the shitty avatars it brought only got developed to compete directly with Nintendo's Miis on the Wii

Anons seem to have a completely outdated idea of Xbox because they've been dormant for so long. The most recent thing here is Lionhead closing and that was five years ago. In that span of time the leadership has completely changed hands and they've bought a bunch of studios.

>Bethesda will be dedders in less than a decade. Either that, or they'll churn out tons of crappy games before going bankrupt.

Xbox is making a ton of money right now and they haven't even started releasing the triple A games in the pipeline. They aren't going anywhere.

didn't play it tbh, but i just mean in general. but really, i mean even new vegas is kinda a polished turd. nothing against obsidian, from what i heard i think they did great with what they were given, but the FO3 format is just fucked for what the series was intended to be. dont even get me started on how they [bethesda] fucked canon

hi buckeye

>>952
I didn't tbh. I thought it was incredibly over hyped. Had all the same issues Fall Out 3 had, more serious bugs than 3 had, the survival/eating stuff seemed cool but it was really just tedious. The only plus side to NV is that the story was more open ended but I couldn't get into it enough to give a shit.

This is why I'm such a contrarian to rebut >>956. They made a shooter where it's literally not fun to shoot things.

I think that format, despite all the problems, has its advantages. The main thing I prefer in 3D Fallout is that there's a lot more versatility in character builds, as opposed to 1/2 where you're basically fucked if you don't choose Small Guns/Sneak/Lockpick. And a lot of the problems can be fixed with modding but as that one anon said it's not really an ideal solution.
>>958
You'd be surprised at how much better the game looks with a simple mod to remove the yellow piss filter. No idea why used that. Same shit in FO3 with the green filter.

Speaking of Underrail how is that game? I hear a lot of people calling it "the real Fallout 3"

 No.963

>>962
idk bout that
it's fun so far, bout 12 hours in.
kinda hit a wall because it looks like my psi isn't good enough.
the dev intended for you to get experience by exploring and finding little out of the way items like how you'd get bonus xp in deus ex for finding hidden rooms and passages. you can play it that way but you can optionally pick to get experience from fights.
I picked the former option and I must just need to do some explorin cause right now some of the fights are really wreckin my ass.
Anyway, definite classic crpg vibes if you're into that kind of thing but I'm not far enough in to really definitely say oh yeah this is what fallout 3 was supposed to be.

it's hard, like I said I was stuck for a bit there. looks like I was going to an area that was over leveled for me. I went to do some other quests and got some xp and some perks.
looks like you just have to keep your wits about you and not always try to brute force stuff.

It's mostly dialogue shit with a lot of the womyn characters being stronk and obnoxious as fuck. You can overlook it pretty easily, but the point I was making is that the seeds were already planted back then, it only ever gets worse when it comes to big name devs, especially when they get eaten by corporations like M$ or EA.

 No.976

Eh, might try it out sometime I guess. Honestly my main problem with CRPGs is fucking up the character build at the start so I'll just be sure to look up some tips before starting.

Oh yeah, I decided to play through Fallout 1 again and found this project:
https://github.com/rotators/Fo1in2
Basically it ports the whole game into the Fallout 2 engine with all the newer features and bugfixes plus some other optional shit you can tweak in the ini.

That's the one that basically Fallout but in Russia right? I've been meaning to try that out sometime, but I will say that isometric games in 3D look a little strange to me tbh.
There's also a Russian fan-game called Fallout of Nevada that I've been meaning to try, apparently it's bretty good but idk.
