  • It's really real this time! Bethesda has a countdown clock up on their Fallout page. A teaser announcement is expected tomorrow with a full preview at E3 later this month.

    I'll believe it when I have the game in hand.

  • It only took them 18 years to put a little color in Fallout. Finally a bit more spectrum besides grey, green, and brown.

    And it'll be nice to see Boston nuked.

  • It looks good and I'm happy it's coming out. I've played through and beat every Fallout game dating back to the early games on the PC. I would have preferred they didn't re-use the same engine used for Fallout 3, Skyrim, etc....but oh well. I'm sure there's enough improvements to make it a worthwhile and epic game.

    So glad it's coming to PC!

  • F3/NV/Oblivion all ran on the Gamebryo engine; F4 looks to be running on an expanded Skyrim (Creation) engine.

    Not sure if I wanna get this on PC or PS4.

    I'm torn on what platform I want to get it on as well. I'll probably end up going with the PC version though, simply for the modding aspect.

  • One reason to get it on PC is that you can realistically dimiss using VATS for your attacks, because you can use the mouse to aim. Unless you're good with aiming with a joystick (yuck).

    I'm hoping that there will be some easter eggs in the game...maybe some deflated footballs lying around.

    I think that any PC capable of running Skyrim will be able to run this game. I could be wrong of course, but that is what I think.

    Eff scalpers. ebay should have a no resale policy for pre-ordered merchandise that hasn't even been released. Really though, it's way too much money for a piece of plastic that just houses a smartphone. Just get one of those workout armbands and slide it down to your forearm. Same experience.

    After Silent Hills was cancelled and the whole Konami debacle, ebay was pulling PS4 systems with the P.T. tech demo installed.

    I don't recall them mentioning the birth defect rate though ....

    I ordered one for a friend in Australia but i'll be shipping it off to him when it shows up (I'm not marking the price up) since he couldn't get one there.

    I could have probably ordered more to flip but with my luck they would release a million of the things the day after i got them and I would be stuck with all that cost.

    No. Calvin and Hobbes is the greatest comic strip ever written. More people should be aware of it.
