>tfw Obsidian saved Fallout yet again
Daily reminder power armor guys have big dicks
>>236835272I hope they tone down the Redditness
>>236835272I get the feeling it's 10 hours long
>>236835272>nu-obsidianYeah, I think I'll pass anon.
How does one obtain the jetpack for x01? Just server hop whitesprjngs?
Is vortex good Bros?I've been using NNM for years now but things just don't work the same as they used to so I'm thinking of switching to Vortex for modding New Vegas (not 4 as NNM is still working well with it)
>>236835610what do you mean by this
oh god furries at the games award show
>>236835765I mean I hope they tone down the Redditness
>>236835272>less than 30 seconds in>goes full Rick and MortyJUSTThe only thing good in that trailer is The Passenger.
>>236835809>goes full Rick and MortyNo they haven't you dumb nigger
>>236835691Can't be worse than FO76. r-right?
>>236835809yeah but didn't Bethesda do that whole Rick and Morty promotion
>>236835538>game clearly doesnt have the slightest link to Fallout outside of "FROM THE CREATORS OF">setting is plainly much closer to Borderlands>trailer dialogue is trash>muh diversity skins on half the characters appearing in the trailer
So the 76 overseer is straight up fucking dead, right? Mountainside kinda makes it seem that way.
>>236835859>Morty, I'm a video game!Defend this.>>236835919SJWyer is still at Obsidian, that poorly animated woman with short hair will be a lesbian 100% guaranteed.
Hey guys remember that time that anon thought people who DIDNT cave in to corporate shills and mindless consumerism were the ones that got their money taken? Its a crazy world out there, dont forget to bring your nylon bag, pipboys, and power armor helmets just in case you run into any baddies guys.
>>236835805yeah what do you mean by this
>>236835913There's a difference between cross-promo ads and making rick and morty in your game
>>236836114the difference is one is an old man who you think looks like Rick and the other was actually Rick and Morty
>>236836039why post if you don't have anything construction to say?
>>236835919I mean, should they have made just a Fallout clone?
>>236836039Wow you stay woke and stick it to the corporations destroying gaming bro I can't believe nobody else figured out but you
>>236836270>anything construction to say
does Wastleland 2 make a good surrogate timewaster? not going to jump to FO76 because I'm a friendless loner who hates listening to people yap.
Honestly kinda feel bad for Bethesda right nowThey just lost ALL of their fans to ObsidianEven the ones who loved Fo3
>>236836216>same lolsowacky xD humor
>fucking NPCs not buying a triple A game and bullying a multi-billion dollar coroporation who is just trying to make games for us
>>236835761Seriously, the more I think about it the more it makes sense. He even jumped instantly at the chance to have her alive again in some form as part of the ship none of his bravado none of his bargaining or instinctive charm just a mild hesitation to say it MIGHT work then bam he was at it doing all the work himself just like he told her he would. It just makes the dick punch han pulls at the end even worse because how lando's a cuck for the next decade or so while han rides his girl around town and taking her to every seedy bar he can. Fuckers so devastated he falls back into living off the grid in seclusion over a fucking gas giant in a station FULL of droids he owns. Hell, C-3PO ends up in one of his darker sex dungeons one time in the OG trilogy where all his broken toys go to sit in the dark but not get thrown away or repaired.
>>236836463That's what you get when you hire on the Rick and Morty people.
>>236836513we don't believe in proof in this general
>>236836295Don't worry, there's an army of clickbaiting Youtubers fighting the good fight and making sure that no game is ever released with bugs again, also be sure to like and subscribe to get your opinion on other games you don't care about.>>23683640176 is playable solo, and just mute voice chat. That said, Wasteland 2 didn't scratch my CRPG Fallout itch when I played it but that was back when it released and I haven't tried the enhanced version or whatever.
>>236835272This looks very generic, setting and plot appear totally flat and basic. Even they add depth to it, its something that's been done tons of times before.It doesn't look it'll have much of what made classic fallout good, which was a unique setting for a game and a very solid atmosphere made through its setting, plot and rpg elements.Still looking forward to it, but I was hoping for something more unique than this.
>>236836630that's a shame
>>236836513I mean just look anywhere on the internet.And now that Obsidian is making an open world first perosn RPGWell Bethesda doesn't stand chance
>ubisoft makes a fallout>obisdian makes a starfield>bethesda tries to fix their consumer support
>>236836270Wow what an insightful post, we need to stick it to these alt righters. Have some 4 channel gold good sir ;-)
>>236836751At least it will have NPCs.
>>236836705>implying you have to sub on youtube to learn about video games>implying you cant just use ad block and totally remove all ads from youtube>implying people who dislike the game are the only ones that browse for reviewsWEW
>Jump in the blades of the earth mover.>Nothing happensI shouldn't be surprised...
>>236836767lol that's just circumstance and talk, not proof>>236836776why are you inferring that they were talking about alt righters?
>>236835272We're finally getting another Fallout! Yay!
>>236836286If it was a clone of Fallout 1 or 2, I'd be happy.
Damn, i mean everyone knows that Obsidian makes better RPGs than Bethesda but imagine if they manage to get proper shooting mechanics down as well now.
>>236836937>stay wokeonly cringy leftists use that phrase
>>236835272That's still from their contract with Take Two, before Microsoft isn't it? So relatively low budget compared to whatever Microsoft may be willing to pour into any future XboXoneX exclusive titles.
>>236837123How fucking underage are you rambling about leftists and the corporations.
>From the developers of Fallout: New VegasSo how come they didn't say Tyranny or Deadfire. Hmnn?
>>236837228t. Hillary voter
>>236836906They'll buy it in droves because Obsidian made the game.
>>236837294Because not only is it the best Fallout game, it's the best Obsidian game.
>>236837361>Because not only is it the best Fallout game,Wrong>it's the best Obsidian game.Arguably correct, since nothing they've done in the last eight years was worth playing.
>>236836751>but I was hoping for something more unique than this.You don't understandBethesda is fucked now that an actual competent company is making a first perosn open world RPG
>>236835530>loverslabhas FO4 content caught up on Skyrim's level?haven't tried any since I've got my hands full keeping my game from not exploding after each update
>>236837417What's the best Fallout game?
>>236837294It was their last good gameAlso to shit on Bethesda by basically saying they made the only good Fallout titles
>>236835272How many bugs do you think it will have?
>>236837294Because fans of 1st person shooterRPGs are more likely to buy this 1st person shooterRPG than fans of isometric cRPGs?
>>236837361That's actually KotOR 2.
>>236837447Was there an interview on stage that said it's open world or an RPG? Because with Microsoft funding it I doubt it'll be any more of an RPG than Fallout 4 is, and open world is not Obsidian's strong suit.>>2368374652. NMA can suck my dick.
>>236837447What? Who cares? I'm worried about how good the game will be. Not some inane corporate rivalry.
>>236837501more than NV but less than FO76
>>236837501I dunno, but I can't wait to play it 3 months after release when it doesn't crash hourly.
>>236837447Not quite, open world games have been exploding in recent years but none of them compete with Bethesda because none of them do open world the way Bethesda does. Take a look at Witcher 3, one of the most popular open world RPGs. Its nothing like a bethesda title. All open world games are still very much stuck in the trappings of copying GTA.
>>236837560It's obviously going to be an Open world RPG>Because with Microsoft funding it I doubt it'll be any more of an RPG than Fallout 4 isWhat? It'll have FAR more choices and RPG elements than 4 did(That's not hard tho)
>>236837560>FO2Shouldn't you be looking forward to Oblivion presents Rick&Morty in Borderlands then?
>>236837448It's getting there. Plenty of good animation packs available and tons of content from nexus mods work with the stuff on loverslab.
>>236837714>but none of them compete with BethesdaAnd that's Obsidian is about to show them how it's done. Bethesda's "open" worlds aren't exactly hard to do
>>236837790No, I've got no faith in Obsidian these days. Avellone's interviews after cutting ties just confirmed my worst fears.
>>236837560>Microsoft funding itThis is funded by TakeTwos Private Divsion. Contract from before the MS buyout.
Man if Starfield doesn't look like the best game of all time at E3 2019 then Bethesda is just fucked
>>236837228you started it by going on about how people who didnt by the game were being deceived by 'outrage culture and revenue". I'm just throwing your own book back in your face retard
>>236837901I hope so anon, but by going by their last few games I wouldn't get my hopes up
>Farcry:fallout even has a cuter doggo>and CARSdamn todd
>>236838040>but by going by their last few gamesThose were shitty kickstarter CRpgs.Trust me AnonThis game will put the final nail in Todd's coffin
>>236835272I'm interested, but if this fails its probably going to be the end of Obsidian.
So what exactly is the benefit of concentrated fire? Is doing headshots with it so great that it's worth it?
>>236837901>Bethesda's "open" worlds aren't exactly hard to doThe lack of competitors and imitators would disagree with you. Until Fallout 76 they worked with a relatively small team and budget compared to other major releases and made very profitable games. If it was easy to do I'm sure plenty of imitators would have popped up to get a slice of that pie.>>236838216Somebody post that pic of the BBS post about Daggerfall being a slap in the face of Arena fans and surely the company will fold.>>236838276MS owns them. They'll get turned into a support studio at worst.
>>236838318Automatic weapons with low ap costs.
>>236837294their only accomplishment is that they made fallout 1 and new vegas, what do you expect? It's the only way they can get sales
>>236838216Didn't people say the same thing when the Witcher 3 came out?
>>236838276Nah this is their last obligation for T2 and from that point on theyll be forced to make some systemseller for xbox.If THAT fails they get fucked.
>>236838357>The lack of competitorsSure in the pastBut now we have two well respected studios(CD Project Red and Obsidian) making these Bethesda type games. If Bethesda doesn't step up their game with Starfield, well they're done for.
> New F4SE out! YAY!> Update it properly!> Game crashes on loading of a file.Damnit.
>>236838495yeah and Bethesda is in shambles now. All thanks to TW3.
>>236835272How long until actual gameplay footage comes out?
>>236838530i never played a farcry game since 3 but don't their games start to become more of a competion the more bethesda goes toward the openworld shooter meme and less RPG?
>>236838647Dude Fallout 4 sold so fucking wellWhat're you talking about. Now Fallout 76 weakened their reputation and if they continue what they're doing then....>>236838742I'd say E3
>>236838530Obsidian trades on its past glories and has few of the people who made their good games still employed. CDPR? We'll see once Cyberpunk comes out, I don't know that it will necessarily be in the same vein as Bethesda's first person games. I'm anticipating it to be closer to an immersive sim with Witcher-esque RPG quest structure.>>236838784They're so very different still, Far Crys are pure action games while Fallouts are ARPGs.
God could you imagine if Outer World and Starfield release the same year...
>>236839128It'd be fantastic, I'd get two sci-fi games to play and you'd get to cry about how sheeple don't know good games when Starfield sold more.
>>236839230>2 new games and obsidian fans get to play the victim again2019 going to be a good year!
>metro looks good>farcry looks good>outerworld looks good>pete has to turn tricks to pay for the lawsuits soondamn christmas came early
>>236835272Fallout's dead, imagine spending time looking for fucking "Handmade Rifle plans" and shit and grinding "caps" and shit when you could be looking forward to Fallout 4 in fucking space. New Vegas was Fallout 3 by the way. Bethesda Fallout is no longer canon, Obsidian rises, Black Isle for life
>>236839583>Bethesda Fallout is no longer canonNever been canon in the first place.
>>236839439I just doubt Starfield is coming out next year, I'd peg it for a year or more after the new console generation launches.
>>236836114Oh I watched Rick and Morty get made into Bethesda's game for 3 straight hours, they cleared fucking Summerville 3 times, it was mind numbingly dull.
DID SOMEONE MENTION HANDMADE RIFLE PLANS
>>236839494>>outerworld looks goodDoes anyone unironically believe this? It's just borderlands without the artstyle. Boneless Borderlands.
>>236839829get some rest todd it's been a tough week
>>236839629The ad admits that Obsidian made Fallout 1 and 2 and New Vegas though, proof. Bethesda is weak to allow them to claim the truth, they never let them claim it before. These claims stand in stark contrast to Todd's performance with 76. Still don't have Handmade Rifle plans, so Todd had best acquiesce. No re-stat for going over level 15 without hanging around Harper's Ferry, since apparently that's the way you're meant to play the game.
>>236839748I wonder if people are getting fired for all the trainwrecks
>>236839829But anon, there are CHOICES. And they probably matter!
>>236839952And they're all equally boring.c.f. Pillars of Eternity and Torment.
All that's missing now is that slimy rat Randy Pitchford coming on stage and announcing Borderlands 3 and Todd gets an aneurism.
>>236839940As we know from the trainwrecks, they aren't planning on doing anything about it
>>236839940The only one that would warrant it is whomever fucked up with the ticket system
>>236839940The Bethesda leaker on /v/ who is totally legit and certainly not a LARPer said heads are rolling
Why did they make it so hard to get good X-01 mods!
>>236840328They only spawn in between level 15 and level 25
>>236840207He's 99% likely a LARPer but heads will be rolling simply because of the bad PR. Probably why Pete hasn't been seen for weeks, he's either already been fired or is working on putting out the dumpster fire before he resigns. There won't be shit on the studio(s?) but the PR department are all sweating, I guarantee it.
>>236840328Watching you suffer over that is unrinocally the only enjoyment i get out of FO76.
>>236840138People like you are why people like Emil still have jobs
>>236840328Keep grinding you stupid pig.Grind! Grind like your live depends on it.and maybe, MAYBE, i'll allow you to buy one from the Atom shop.
Whoever made this glorious bastard, any chance you can help me get close to a recreation? I have a 280 phrase soundboard I made for the Friday the 13th game and would have a blast recreating some of those hijiinks here.
>>236840475Because I know enough about the world to know that's the only fuck-up that would warrant a firing?
>>236840869You're talking to a zoomer who has never had a job and gets his opinions from e-celebs m8, don't bother.
>>236840475>Firing your old talent instead of promoting them into irrelevance and keeping them around as a senior lore consultant.
>>236840475This makes no sense as the titles Emil was in charge of were incredibly popular.
>>236835272>door stops going down>guy mashes all the buttons>it starts working againCall me fucking reddit but that got me
>>236841014>it's popular so it's good
>>236841168>if it's not popular it's only because of a smear campaign by youtubers and /v/
Why is it so hard to build what you want?I hate that its still better than most other building systems I've used in games.
>>236840475what did he literally mean by this?
>>236841168Yes,this is how thing works
>>236835272It literally looks like 'Borderlands : New Vegas'I love both Borderlands AND New Vegas so it might be good? For me at least
>>236841216well emil shits out terrible stories and people keep eating them up so he doesn't have to try I guess
>>236841168I hope Obsidian Presents Borderlands: Reddit & Morty Edition is popular so you can't enjoy it.>>236841238I'd be excited if NV wasn't the last good game Obsidian released. They aren't the studio they used to be.
>>236841195fucking sims has a better system m8 what are you on about
>>236840328Buff what're your thoughts on Obsidian's new Bethesda killer?
>>236841217No it isn't. Popular opinion simply decides on, well, popularity. Quality is only one of many factors that can decide on popularity.>it's popular because it's popular
>>236841447Sims isnt a great comparison.I'm talking about other survival games. Many dont even let you move objects once they are placed and its stupid as fuck, others dont have a quick crafting system forcing you to haul materials and pieces across your area. They are just tedious compared to this ones, and this ones system is still so damn bad compared to something thats centered around that kind of stuff like you said with sims rather than stapled on the side like this and F4.
>>236841517on the one hand it doesn't have big titty waifus. but on the other hand it has lizards and bugs he can jack off to
>>236841589Said titles were also critically well received but please tell us how that's wrong too
>>236835272The only thing this game will kill is Obsidian
>>236841786>critics matter as long as they validate my opinion
>>236841390>They aren't the studio they used to be.I won't say I'm already about to drop a preorder, but I think it has promise. It's worth keeping an eye on at least.
>>236837294maybe because obsidian has 2 internal teams and one of them worked on tyranny/pillars while the other (the nv team) has been working on outer worlds since 2016.
>>236842053talk about delusional, lmao
>>236841690>bigass gaudy marble statue on 8 inch wooden floor without visible supportsThat's a major safety hazard anon
>>236841959For sure. I'd love them to make something I want to play again, but I was disappointed with PoE and the less said about Tyranny the better.
>>236835272I dunno how they managed to make it look worse than Fallout 4 or 76
>>236841853Todd go to sleep
>>236841194Anon. Go look at the user scores and what people are saying.They're not legit and you know it.
>>236842053Obsidian isn't a big studio. You can safely assume many of the same people are those who're working on both titles. The difference is just in the writers and directors.
>>236842130it isnt a secret. theyve even given that team their own brand name now as you saw in the trailer.
>>236835272>from the original creators of fallout>and fallout new vegaslmaoi love nu-fallouts and 76, but that was hilarious
>>236842254>it's only legit when it validates my opinion
>>236842165He shouldn't have gone for non-union labor.>>236842254You don't even have to go that far, just look at the requirements to post a user review on Metacritic.>Can you make a throwaway email address?
>>236842330Private Division isn't Obsidian you dipshit, it's a Take Two imprint.
>>236842165I'm sorry anon, If it helps I added supports to the outside.>>236842403>He shouldn't have gone for non-union labor.Never use cheap robot labor. They broke more than they built.
>>236842695You didn't answer my question buff
Did they drop the Entertainment from Obsidian Entertainment when Pillars and Tranny were so boring they almost killed the company?
>>236842695get a load of this sad nigger
>>236842695Would using it at the white spring make all robots instantly hostile to you?
>>236842853>sadBut he seems quite enthused by getting that item???
Cait has never worn the nuka girl outfit in my game because it's not really her style and she doesn't seem like she would want to, but I often imagine what she would look like.
>>236842932It just highlights shit so you can see them, especially in the woods at night.
>>236842750MaybeBut now they're about to koll another company *cough Bethesda cough*
>>236842351>Shit game 0/10 is totally legit
>>236830664Modern Firearms mod has FAL.
what mo2 setup can get me this
>>236841517I watched it a little bit ago, kinda looks like a mix between Borderlands and No Man's Sky.Looks pretty cool I guess.
>>236843496dragbody has gone too far this time
>>236843338Somebody please post that screenshot of that Usenet discussion about how Morrowind would kill Bethesda because it will be a shit game.
>>236843294Caitfag what're your thoughts on Obsidian's new Bethesda killer?
>>236843680Looks great, and I look forward to learning more about it and about Starfield.
>>236835272>From the ORIGINAL creators of Fallout>And the developers of Fallout: New VegasSHOTS FIRED
>>236843836>and about Starfield.SameI really hope Starfield is good
Anonfags what is your 2 cents on Obsidian's new Bethesda killer?
>>236844347could be big.trailer seemed a bit generic though and the dyke seems obnoxious. I want to go out with beers with the old dude tho.Keep me posted.
That guy who always baits with /pol/ shit, what's your thoughts on Obsidian's new Bethesda killer?
>>236844347Pandering too hard out of ten.Looks good tho
Anyone got those new Fallout 4 Creation Club files?
>>236844347Can't say for sure until I see gameplay, but I'm hopeful. Tim Cain & the gang have a huge pedigree in roleplaying games so my expectations are at least on New Vegas tier.
>>236844347it's giving me flashbacks to borderlands 2 that make it impossible for me to get hyped, that game broke my heart
>>236844347Expecting nothing due to Obsidian's recent track record, but would love to be proved wrong.
>>236844347Forgotten 2 weeks after release and only brought up for shitposting purposes
>>236844582>Obsidian's recent track recordWhat is their recent track record? Last Obsidian game I played was Armored Warfare, which was fucking great.Until the publishers ran out of vodka and potatos and kicked Obsidian out to literally copy pixel for pixel World of Tanks
>>236844731>Pillars of Boredom>Tranny>Pillars of Boredom 2: Proof that CRPG fans are so starved they'll fund a sequel to a turdThe last good RPG they made was New Vegas.
>>236844892>He was bored by PoEADHD Zoomer opinion discarded
>>236835272And so it begins
>>236844986t. born after 9/11 and overcompensating for credEven Icewind Dale had a more engaging story than PoE, and it was about as barebones as it could possibly be.
>>236845130Confirmed for never actually playing Icewind Dale. Literally no one that's ever played that game would say it has a story.There's hardly even a fucking map outside of the never ending stream of dungeonous dungeoning dungeons.
>>236845276And STILL it kept me more interested than Pillars of Snore.
>>236844508Just the zetan pack herehttps://ufile.io/fcn2w
Anyone else like to go around shitting on people's camps and workshops just to fuck with people?PVP is broken as fuck, especially with all this pacifist mode bullshit so I do whatever I can to remind the carebears how casual they are.
>>236845452>I'm hardcore, look at me vandalizing people's shit in this baby gameWhy aren't you playing a real shooter since you're obviously a Chad?
>>236845408You must have autism then because at least PoE had character back stories and dialogue choices.Icewind Dale was literally a straight line through dungeons to the ending. No backstories, no choices, only combat.
>>236845452Why not just play one of the many games geared toward what you want?
Why is quick travel so expensive? >get a quest>quests tells you to get item>item on other side of the map>90 caps there and back>20 caps reward for the quest.
>>236845671Hmmmmmm could it be because they are trying to artificially inflate play time? Nah.
>>236845452I love to wreck workshops all day.Leave my camp alone though.>>236845538>>236845582Because messing with people can be fun.>>236845671>have camp on one side of map>vault 76 on the otherNot that hard anon
>>236845452>see someone has fortified Poseidon and has the fusion core generator running>drop mines all around it>causes the core creator to break when he trips them going for cores>he repairs it>I shotgun his gennies>calls me toxic and repairs it again, then builds a big fucking wall of cement barricades around it>I start lobbing grenades over it and blow the core creator again.>dude has a complete meltdown over voice chat calling me toxic, screaming, begging me to just take some cores and fuck off>my face when I sledge his workshop benches and stash box to pieces as he screams.

>>236845671>take over most workshops safely because people are pussies>make back money spent getting there and taking it over with repeatable defense quests>fast travel to around the map for free afterward
Is it safe to form some sort of RP bandit group with homies in fo76 or will I get banned for being too toxic?
>>236845981You will get banned. Fallout 76 is a safe space. Don't tread on me please.
>>236845981You'll get bored because most people won't resist and those who do will BTFO you with farmed or duped legendaries.
>>236845860>The real question is why they left quick travel in at all.So people can join in on events, most notably the scorchbeast queen, without having to sprint for ages in the hopes of joining in.>>236845981Depends on whether or not you film it/encounter some faggot streamer.
>>236845981Don't use "hate speech" and you'll be fine.

>F4SE just updated FINALLY. I learned my fucking lesson this time and downloaded the .exe backup tool so I dont have to deal with bathesda and their worthless updates ever again
>>236845981>RPIf you actually roleplay instead of be a dick for no reason people will probably enjoy it.>>236846071That makes sense but why not restrict it to events or have some sort of in-game fast travel like saying the Responders repaired the railway and put bot-operated carriages on them so you can only fast travel from one station to another?
Why do miniguns use 5mm? Why the fuck don't they just use 5.56mm? Like what the fuck even is 5mm?
>>236845860>why they left quick travel in at all.Because they don't want to program vehicles, and movement is too slow overall. Events would never be completed if you couldnt easily get to them.
>>236845451That's LITERALLY all I wanted.Thank you, based anon.
>>236846314>That makes sense but why not restrict it to events or have some sort of in-game fast travel like saying the Responders repaired the railway and put bot-operated carriages on them so you can only fast travel from one station to another?Because they would justify the use of caps being needed to fast travel and that is far too good an idea for Bethesda.
>>236840397Not aware of any limit to Pete Hines' arrogance, not interested in discussing his future at Bethesda
>Bethesda shitting the bed nonstop with fallout 76>Obsidian announces a Fallout killerReal talk. What is bethesda going to do at this point? Even the diehard ledditor fans are mocking the game.
>>236844347It reminds me of Firefly. I hated Firefly.Also I'm so tired of seeing the same recycled "Plucky group of malcontents vs. evil corporation" over and over again. I hope it's good, but the trailer did nothing for me.
>>236846314>from one station to anotherTheres no station in the mire.The faction headquarters could have gotten you free fast travel as you completed them.You start with 76 in the forest, then the responders at the airport for toxic valley access, the top of the world is raiders of course, then certain bunker for the free states in the mire and bos hq for travel near cranberry. The final faction would finally get you a fast travel near the ash heap. A trading hub would have done wonders as well for the game.
>>236846645Real talk, using the term "anything killer" is a surefire way to doom the game from the start. See any of the multitude of "WoW killers".
>>236846798>Theres no station in the mire.Yeah, but obviously in my hypothetical situation you'd have the map set up to provide access somehow.>>236846645>Real talk. What is bethesda going to do at this point?Stop trying to make multiplayer games and go back to singleplayer. They have Starfield and the next TES game to release before they have to make another Fallout so they can let the stink die down on that name.
>>236846645I'd be more inclined to called Far Cry New Dawn a Fallout Killer than Obsidian's Borderlands clone. That trailer was terribly uninspiring.
>>236846812>he doesn't know that it's fans coining the "X-Killer" moniker for games>he actually thinks developers are openly calling their game the "X-Killer" in a time when even disney sues the pants off fans for having pokemon themed events.
>>236846645Calling it a 'Fallout killer' is very, very premature. It looks like it could be good but trailers can be oh so disappointing compared to the real thing. I'm cautiously hopeful but reserve judgement until I know more.
>>236844347>Spacenogs>Hurr durr evil capitalist corporations! Communism rocks!>Rick & Mortyit's like borderlands + reddit. Why cant I work for the corporations instead and crush all the little guys? Tyranny let you be the bad guy, so I want that kind of gameplay again.
>>236846979Yeah I just thought having it based on the factions works better and needed less to make sense than bot carriages. It also lets people get them by following the mq so idiots wont have as many issues hopefully.
>>236847101>Tyranny let you be the bad guyDidn't play it.
So what all do you need to set off a nuke?
Scrapper been patched yet?I'll play again when it has
>>236847101Why do they have to be evil capitalist corporations? Maybe they're evil state-owned communist corporations like in China.
>>236847335Because they want to teach children that capitalism is bad.
Have they fixed the disarm grenade xp exploit yet?
>>236847035>some retard thinks I think Obsidian called it's game the fallout killer>he thinks I think all those MMO's called themselves WoW killersAnon, you may seriously have brain damage. The games industry plays nice. There's no game studio that would do something like that. Loosen the straps on your helmet. Your brain need Oxygen.
>>236847397It is when it's unregulated, just like any other system that can be exploited.
>>236847454Yes.>>236847467This. If nobody has asked Todd what he thinks of the Outer Worlds on Twitter yet somebody should, because there's two possible answers:1) I haven't seen the trailer yet.or2) I'm excited to play it when it comes out.There is no rivalry. There is no seething hatred. That comes from /v/ getting emotionally invested in fucking companies that make their entertainment.
Okay I'm getting fed up with this garbage.I have a god damn shitty bug in 76 thats permanently affecting my characters charisma and agility. I tried taking everything off and relogging and using addictol/cures. I'm about to fucking give up until they fix it because I really dont want to make a new character. Maybe the respec update will do something for it. Any ideas?
>>236847335>>236847101Evil megacorporations have been a sci-fi staple for decades. Weyland-Yutani, Tyrell Corporation, and so on. People have loved to hate giant, soulless corporate machines sine as long as I can remember.

a lot of games have an evil religion.a lot of games have an evil country.a lot of games have an evil individual.an evil corporation is just one of the common big baddies. even within fallout, we see some bad guys that break the above molds. "factions" get to be something besides one of those above. Borderlands was evil corporation though, and this game screams "we want the borderlands audience", so I think that's where a bit of that impression comes from.
>>236848606>an evil corporation is just one of the common big baddiesIt's not "a corporation" it's Capitalism and it's been there bad guy in nearly everyone of their games
>>236848237No matter what I try my cha is stuck at 4 with the minus symbol next to it. Its suppose to be at 5.Its happened with my agi as well but thats less noticeable when trying to share cards. It was worse at one point but en-equiping everything and relogging fixed it back to 4 at least thank jebus. I currently use underarmor with +1 cha and stuff to compensate but fuck its annoying. I read that F4 has a bug that can permanently lower/raise your perception as well so wonder if its related.Basically it has to do with how stat debuffs are applied with resistances in 4. Not sure what I would have done to cause it in 76 though.
>Obsidian gets to use UE4>Bethesda devs stuck with Creation/GamebryoThat's just not fair
>>236847678Todd, can you please make 2-3 star legendaries possibly drop from the union vs confed pvp event? I tried it and it was fun as fuck, but people aren't up there enough. More carrot. Maybe add gun plans there too for people who cbf making a low level for handmade plans.
>>236848606>this game screams "we want the borderlands audience"For the first and only time, I agree with our resident pet autist.
>>236835143anyone know what MRGUTSY fire. it sounds like ballastic but high defense and evasion dont do a damn thing. are they bugged?its the only thing really that manage to kill me in a no PA build

Perks to decrease the reload time on blackpowder weapons or the single action revolver when? They're fun as hell but not useful.
>>236848563It's from Alien? Never recall hearing it but maybe I didn't consider it important enough
>>236848476My problem is that I simply cant find good normal armor mno matter what,I can get around 300/300 defense but fuck its hard to get god drops on armor. At least I'm as durable as my excavator armor (except I'm not because fuck stats), going full leather can get me almost 400 energy resist.

>>236848897there are so many nice looking pies. There's a blackberry pie and a few others too. Normally, when I play fallout 4, I want to send my character a care package of clean food and water like in the hunger games, but in 76 I was actually kind of jealous of my character when she made a bunch of different fruit pies and I was choosing which one to eat.>ywn bake a bunch of pies and invite all your /fog/ friends and have a picnic on the top of the world
>>236847738what about the good megacorporations like vault-tec, robco and nuka cola
>>236849047I'd take graffix only over Creation tbqh
>>236848954And it will be forever, until corporations start playing games more than individuals do.>>236849047Reminder that Ed Boon's brother who doesn't work at Epic discovered how to get UE3 to render at 60fps on consoles while developing Mortal Kombat 2011.
>>236848476I agree with this.>barely degrades>cores last forever even without perks>can be found all over the map>basically invincible and immune to radiationHonestly what they need to do is make it so you can craft Legendary effects for weapons and armor using Ultracite and flux. This way you can make armor worth using outside of PA and so you don't have to just hope you get a good roll on a weapon. It would also make Ultracite and flux useful outside of making magic underwear. And since there aren't any 5 star enemies/legendaries right now, crafting it would make sense.
>>236849191>Every game posted was made 20< years ago>DecadeDo you know how long a decade is?>>236849243That or WW3. The only reason capitalism is so demonized is because it is the "man" in every relevant place on earth except for one
>excavator armor isnt boosting carry weightDid I miss something or is my shit broken?
>>236849228>vault-tecThe same corporation that conducted all kinds of unethical human experiments on nuclear holocaust survivors?>robcoNot sure if they were a 'mega' corporation, they seemed a little too specialized, but if they were they were at least somewhat benign.>nuka colaIIRC they were pretty aggressive against competition and rather cutthroat. They were the #1 drink not only because of the drink itself being good but also because they quashed competition. Also there's a good possibility that Nuka Cola Quantum might have been really, really, really bad for your health long-term and they didn't care - they only cared about sales.
>>236849324>Cores last foreverSomeone hasn't used PA since the update
>>236849487And that's what makes him a Chad.
What perk cards are they missing, or should add in the future for 76?
>>236848289I've never tried Sarsaparilla, but this post made me want to.
>>236849484He means in modern (ie Bethesda) Fallout
>>236849176Yes, actually. Terminator as well.
>>236849530 They should consolidate a lot of the damage perk cards. Why do you need 9 points for a single weapon? People like to use two or even three weapons, it shouldn't be this big of a hindrance,
>>236849228Good as in well written or good as in ethically? Either way you might want to go to sleep and read the post again in the morning. >>236849608I can tell. They were the driving force in everything. So go rewatch them
>>236849459>>236849460wow, smoothbrains cant read sarcasm when it's that blatant
>>236849530More specialized, RP-focused ones for gimmicks, like baseball perks that boost melee damage and throw distance but only with bats and baseball grenades, etc.>>236849571I started drinking it when NV featured it, but apparently Sarsaparilla is different flavored here in Australia.>>236849681That removes the need to specialize. You might as well just give 15 in every SPECIAL at that point.
>>236849681The main problem with damage perk cards is that statting 1 point into each tier is more cost-efficient than going all the way. Forcing people to choose damage or utility isnt a problem imo.
>>236849242Not when you realize how bug ridden most UE games are, that combined with the extreme simplicity in whats happening in the world makes it a laughable choice compared to shit like fox engine.>>236849243>ue3>relevant to ue4Reminder to attain more information before posting. Tons of games ran at 60 fps on console, it means nothing when those games have nothing happening in them compared to even simple shit like just cause or red faction guerrilla that already proved massive destruction isnt an issue on last gen hardware. >>236849681You can, 3pts is enough for 30% damage which is plenty for most encounters. If you want MAX damage you should be forced to focus on specific traits.
>>236849665In 76 you emerge from your control vault into the wilderness and follow your benevolent vault tec rep to the surface.
>>236849742Honestly since robco is never really portrayed as being all that evil, I figured maybe you weren't being sarcastic.House isn't really evil, just selfish and somewhat fixated on a past vision that likely won't ever be achievable again. His company is big and sprawling but I don't think it's ever really portrayed as being downright bad like Vault-Tec is?
>>236849681the damage perk cards should still take 9 points, but they should be consolidated with some of the secondary bonus cardsreload faster, aim down sights better and gain stagger chance (for cards 1 2 and 3 respectively, in jumbled order depending on which attribute it is) should all be effects that join the card on the 2nd star of the perks
>>236849903Tier 3 of the damage perks adding reload speed, armor pen, etc, is a change that would be a decent idea.
>>236849889control vaults are a tiny percentage of vaults. all the evil experiments were never retcon'ed. Saying "vault tec in bethesda's faullouts is good" would be a grossly inaccurate statement.
>>236849863>Not when you realize how bug ridden most UE games areIn comparison with Creation? Respectfully, I wasn't looking for a discussion about best engine and why it's Godot, just stating my disappointment with Bethesda still using Creation like the pennypinchers they are.
>>236849751>that removes the need to specialize>i know how to use rifles really well>it makes sense this doesn't translate to shotgunsStop being retarded anon. IF they squished the weapon cards into 6 points it would be a much better system.>>236849829I honestly thought that the way 4 did the damage perks was fine, if a little souless and bland. Not that 76 does damage perks and better, at least for flat damage bonuses.>>236849863Maybe if you wear PA you can get away with doing unoptimal damage. If I fuck around too much shit will kill me, level appropriate. >>236849903I could live with this compromise. It would make sense that being a master "blank" would know how to best use the weapon.
>>236849896House is the best evil that New Vegas has, but the man is undoubtedly evil
>>236849530i said this yesterday but i think that we should be able to gain 1 extra special point for every 5/10 levels after 50 so that you can eventually have everything
Anyway to fix the save file loading crash? I just updated F4SE today and was able to play for a bit but now every save I try to load except really old ones crash.
>>236849889It's not a control vault. Vault-tec couldn't fuck with it because it was civilian built and owned, so they inserted their own overseer with a secret mission.
>>236849460do you think we will have the nuka world colas added or if we will ever be able to craft our own colas
>>236849903I like this idea. I fucking despise needing to switch out lockpicking perks with my rifle ones so frequently.>>236850052This guy gets it.>hurrdurr I have a robot army that could be used to defend people and rebuild civilization>I'm going to the moon with my robosexual waifusFuck that guy.
>>236850094Even better, god bless Capitalism for saving the people of Vault 76.
>>236849530More perks that specialize using alcohol. Right now alcohol has so many perks, but theyre all bland and boring along with the effects liquor gives. Whats the point of triple effectiveness if youre just getting a temporary boost to a stat?
>>236850183>god bless CapitalismRemind me what Jesus' stance on banking was?
>>236850272Selling your cloak for swords iirc
>>236850017Yes.Its down to the devs more than anything else anon.Thats why shit like Lords of the Fallen and PUBG runs like absolute rubbish using UE4 yet other games can easily scale down to potato at 60fps. >>236850037>Maybe if you wear PA you can get away with doing unoptimal damageIf there was a way to actually have resistance to both ballistic and energy we wouldnt need PA all the time.I can chill in watoga just fine without my PA because i have like 350 energy resist. Ballistic suffers for it though so you have to bring two sets of armor or some shit and at that point why even bother?
>>236849324>It would also make Ultracite and flux useful outside of making magic underwearPrime receivers and their ammo.
>>236850247They need to reduce the points cost or increase the bonuses for sure. I was going to make a drunk junkie build for shits and giggles but when I saw how much of a point sink the perks were I gave up.>>236850343>If there was a way to actually have resistance to both ballistic and energy we wouldnt need PA all the time.Marine armor, nigga.
>>236850343>Its down to the devs more than anything else anon.Too early for me to accept that. I was a fanboy up until 76.
>>236850404>Marine armor, nigga.I havent been able to get anywhere near 350 resist in either category with it yet.Does it get that good? Normal combat armor seems to be ass now.
>>236850052Evil's a tad harsh.Uncaring, sure. Selfish as hell. He has some 'evil' traits but then pretty much everyone does.But he also has good traites. He seems to genuinely want people to appreciate and enjoy New Vegas, he wants the city to be restored to its glory days. His city can't exist and can't prosper without people in it, and he wants to ensure that there will always be patrons, gamblers, dealers, and everyone needed to keep the city alive and bright.I wouldn't call him good, not by a long shot. Perhaps a bad person but not outright evil.At least, not compared to a great many worse factions and leaders out there.
>>236850272>it's an atheist cherrypicks bible lines againNo anon. Stop making yourself look like a fool
>>236850470All armor is ass until it's modded, honestly.
>>236850523>it's a burger thinks Christianity is compatible with capitalism episode
>>236850465What are you even trying to say?If you are actually siding with an engine fag than I'm sorry for your disappointment. Engines mean literally nothing for quality. Artists and animators handle the graffix.The writers handle the stories. Level designers handle the things you actually walk around in. Game designers handle the systems that let you interact with all the other aspectsThe coders handle making it all not be absolute ass on the engine. Thats not even counting additional money for VA or marketing and QA. Then you have to take deadlines into account as well. This is the absolute most simplest brainlet explanation you are going to get as well, take it with a grain of salt.No company can master all of the above. Its pretty much impossible because as one part becomes more complex the others become that much harder to integrate without bugs.
>>236850526Obviously, I just cant find anything that gives 65+ in one category and 25+ in the other like what I currently use.Does Marine armor come even remotely close to the total averages of above?
>>236850526the worst meme is mods that reduce its durability, i do not understand why deep pocketed has to tank my leather arm's durability to the point where it lasts only 30% as long as it should, i walked past a deathclaw and despite having white knight 1 and lucky break 3 all of my armour was broken from full repair
>>236850806Please stop this shrieking. Choosing the correct engine for your needs is essential to putting out a good game.>>236850957I'd be OK with stuff like pocketed, leaded etc. decreasing max durability if increasing the primary armor quality (studded leather etc.) increased it as much or more.
It's kind of weird how pro-capitalist/US Nationalism Fallout 4 and 76 are, I suppose thats why most old fans don't like them
>>236850806I'm saying I wish Bethesda did get to use other engines than Creation and Gamebryo for their games considering it's easier than ever to license engines. I know how a few languages rather well myself, and while I do not work in game dev full time I have done some contract work in the field. I have no reason to want a discussion on what engine is better or worse (That's not how things work anyways) or, respectfully, statements such as>Engines mean literally nothing for quality>The coders handle making it all not be absolute ass on the engine

>>236851243>I'm saying I wish Bethesda did get to use other engines than Creation and Gamebryo for their games considering it's easier than ever to license engines.They're sticking with what they know and what they've tailored to their needs over years. Probably to their detriment, but until they expanded after Fallout 4 Bethesda was actually a B sized studio making their games on a B budget, they just had the AAA marketing.>>236851314Fuck no, bashing is pointless.

Which fucking sucks considering what frostbite and fox engine can handle on last gen hardware.
>>236851375Just for killing early level roaches and mole rats.
>>236851478>FrostbiteAnother great example of an engine being used for the wrong things. It's amazing for Battlefield games like it was intended, and has trouble with everything else EA forced their studios to use it for.
>>236851585They use it for racing and sports games mostly.Things that battlefield handled fantastically, ballistics and vehicles. The sports games should get their own engine though. Too bad its more than good enough for 99% of players so they will just use it as a fit all the same as unreal.

>>236852207Take grafton steel yard for steel. There's two extractors and like 100 super mutants spawn there all the time that you can kill and scrap their weapons for more steel.
>>236850073I really need help here now, neither F4 or the SE launcher will launch now, the game crashes and won't start. What the hell do I do? Why is everything broken?
>>236852370What perks are used to heal or benefit others with Int?
>>236851907Anything you get the Medic prefix on + VATS
>>236850272Oy vey, Jesus isn't G-d!
>>236852496The ones that increase the efficacy of stimpacks and rad-away.
>>236846521The fact that Hines has been given free reign to shit on consumers for years now shows the level of nepotism at Bethesda. I hope he and Emil are fired.
holy shit after getting power armor at level 1 and rad child at level 4 i'm unstoppable
>Melee build don't pick up steam until like level 25 and onwarduuuugghhh
>>236852458>>236850073the game updated yesterday for me, you have to wait for stuff like looksmenu and mcm to update as well as f4se
Well, I'm not certain if this is less or more horrifying.
>>236852616Do you even know what nepotism means or are you repeating a word you saw used on /v/?>>236852629Try making anything that needs luck perks m8.
>>236852612Those do nothing to benefit other players. If you're thinking pairing that with Team Medic from charisma, it doesn't work.
>>236852629That's fucking nothing. You don't even know what suffering is.t. person who tried to make a heavy weapons build work immediately at level 25 with an M2 off the back of a truck
>>236852725Well that fucking sucks balls, disregard me entirely. I'm glad I'm not too deep on INT on my support build.
>>236852612im curious about those, are they worth it? im not short on either because i have pharma farmer 3 so spamming them is no big deal, i also have ghoulish/photosynthetic/the sun rad removal one
>>236852370I'd argue that youre retarded for taking any high CHA characters along for "supporting".
>>236852737The worst part is that after I killed it the Thomas model started flickering and flying away so I was scrambling to get a decent shot.
>>236852629[/spoiler]They don't work end game either
>>236852816You'd be wrong, but that's OK. Just pick yourself up and try again.
>>236852616>fans are super argumentative>love to pick fights and be sarcastic and toxic all the time>people flip shit when he returns what he getsYou'd have to be a robot to put up with this community.
>>236852820Also since you can't accurately see the model it's way harder to hit it.
>>236852803Chemist for spamming diluted stimpacks and stuff.
>>236852803Int's great, but I mostly only use it for makeshift warrior or gunsmith on my supports. As >>236853016 mentioned, making shit tons of diluted stimpacks is pretty broken for team medic.
>>236852878>have to spend about 300-500 rounds with my .50 cal to kill a scorch beast>can kill it in 5 hits with my super sledgeThe beauty of alts is calling you out on shit like this.
>>236853068Sharing pharma farma and everybody just pooling most of their stims into you is also good, though you need traveling pharmacy.
>>236853016>>236853068That's a point, but it can be switched out when it's time to craft.>>236853137I thought Traveling Pharmacy was a given on any build that doesn't require STR points for damage.
>>236853115Good luck in PvP or fighting the scorch beast queen AKA the only two things to do end game.
>ticks just explode into nothing half the timeFUCK
Piper liked that
>>236853208Kill them before they swell up too much.
>>236852690NiceI'm wondering why its green. I know Fallout 76 has some new texture types, but that didn't apply for mine really.
>>236853190>he thinks queen is endgame>not farming whitesprings>pvpAnon, you couldn't have worse opinions then this, right?
>>236853208They do leave behind phantom corpses that turn into meat piles after whatever time.
>>236838530Look, as much as everybody includes term open world design in the description of the games, none of them have the same formula of Bethesda's. They're more like Assassin's Creed 1-2 type open worlds. i haven't seen any game coming close to Beth's Morrowind, Oblivion or even Skyrim type open world.
>>236853274My two leading theories are normal maps or that the scorchbeast has a glowmap.
>>236852689I have the new updates for MCM and F4SE and the game won't even start up. Not the SE launcher or the steam launcher.
>>236853284>he doesn't PvP
>>236853460>pvping>in the worst balanced game ever to feature pvpAnon, you need to stop now. You can't hold all these shit opinions at once!
>>236853318>Thomas the ScorchbeastNooooooooooooooooooooooooope
>>236853115takes me several hundred 5mm rounds to down a secure transport cargobot, with a level 50 berserkers gatling gun and explosive rounds, problem isnt damage its just that i dont have the sights mod unlocked and the damn thing flies massively high out of range of both vats and the gun and behind buildings
>>236853546>he thinks the sights will help him with the gatling gunOh no no no no
>>236853318Pretty sure they do have glow mapsAt least parts of their bodies glow. I'm leaning towards glow map because some dude on Nexus swapped out an outfit with a slutty AB / Cbbe one and took pics of it while posing in front of a dead Mothman.
>>236853509>he only kills computers You'll never experience the thrill of farming shitters for caps while denying them their workshops
>>236835530>>236838546>>236846234>>236850073>>236852689>>236853405Roll back your .exe with the steam console nibbashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLQI_DVZfaQ
>>236853658You'll never convince people you've actually played 76.
I can't believe i'm saying this but i'm actually excited about new obsidian game for once. If, just IF it will be a sucessful franchise, bethesda's monopoly on open world sandbox "rpg" might finally crash and they stop being lazy sloppy care for nothing assholes and actually start making decent games again
>>236853546i dont expect incredible accuracy but with the twisted muscles penalty im just aiming at it and hoping for hitmarks
>>236836109He means he doesn't like quippy humor, whatever he meant by that.
>>236853743meant for >>236853590
>>236853720Where was it announced it was an open world sandbox? All I've seen is the trailer and wild assumptions.
ANYHOOApparently I unlocked this without really realizing what I unlocked when I helped kill my first Scorchbeast a long ass time ago. Like a week or two ago. Somehow the RNG gods knew I liked Plasma weapons. So if anyone wants Prime Plasma weapons come find me I guess!
>>236853802Can't wait til fourplay is ported to 76 and we can fuck other players.
>>236853785I don't have a pic of the sights anon, but they are comically misaligned. You won't be able to use the sights for shit. Maybe some one has a pic they can show you..
>>236853803>2018>not open worldu wot m8I'm not saying the first game is going to be on the same scale as BGS games, PREY level of openness maybe, but if it's successful microsoft gonna pump money into that franchise to milk it as hard as possible
>>236848338>Capitalism is badCalifornia if anything is the one of the centers of Capitalism you dingus
>>236853878fourplay is over, it was cannibalised by AAF>>236853931better than nothing, unless theres a better weapon for shooting the cargobots down>>236853818fluxes are the absolute worst meme, if i can get the raw fluxes i cant get the other stuff to make the finished pure flux
>>236853694to be clear all you have to do is close Steam add "-console" to your Steam shortcut and then reopen steam and type>download_depot 377160 377162 883559999634905832and you get the Fallout4.exe before today's update. Make sure to only use f4se to launch.
>>236853968But "Capitalism is bad" is literally the theme of Obsidians next game>California is the one of the centers of Capitalism>6.2m in povertyMore like the center of poverty and welfare checks
>>236854508Flyover cuck mad that California has more people in poverty than his state has people period.
>>236854508Maybe if it didnt cost a kidney to live there
Did these madmen launch a double nuke on prime site?
>>236853931>>236854065>>236853785>>236853590the sights aren't used to aim, they just reduce the cone of firethe way you sight in as a player is unchanged, but the gun's accuracy still increases
>>236854691What would the point even be? Speaking of nukes, would I be safe if I hid in the white springs interior cells if someone nuked the place?
>>236854627>california has more people in poverty than any other state>californian is proud about thisDoes that mean you love India?
>>236854769I'm not Californian, I just love that you sad landlocked people envy people that have a coastline so much.
>>236854840>you sad landlockedI'm not even American anon
>>236853694I did this and my Fallout 4 still won't even boot up.
>>236854736yeah, but remember to bring a hazmat suit if you want to go outside
>>236854909No wonder you have a problem with people in poverty you fucking socialist.
>>236854997Who doesn't carry around a suit of PA for shit like this?
>>236855012I'm not in the EU anon
>>236855017PA doesn't give you that much rad resist
>>236855085The fuck are you using? Raider?
>>236854691Can you kill the queen with another nuke?>>236854736Yes>>236854997You can still fast travel without needing a suit.Not sure how you would even get in there to begin with unless you got trapped.
>>236855048>not even relevant enough to be a europoorLMAO @ UR LIFE
I had a kind of weird bug yesterday. Finished a Grafton event and all the sudden my health just started randomly draining. Thought it was weird and maybe some sort of delayed damage/lag. Eat a couple radstag steaks and purified water to get back up to full health. Health starts draining rapidly again. Check conditions, nothing going on. Relogged and it was fixed. Strange.
>>236855085>500>not muchlolwutSo whats the go to strategy for leveling up another character?
>>236854691if you attempt to launch all 3 nukes at once the server crashes
>>236853818I'd actually take you up on this to put it on my two shot plasma, but goddamn if getting pure flux isn't a giant grind.Wouldn't even be so bad if you didn't have to hope for nuked enemies to drop the other garbage you need to make it.
>>236855617That was already fixed.
>>236855576this actually happened to me at the west tek building, in effects it said something about burning damage but there was no visual indication except for the constant health drain for about 2 minutes despite no injury
>>236855649there needs to be some sort of way of getting flux and its ingredients except for blast for blast zones, maybe a chance of getting it from a merchant for like 2-3k caps would be fine
Why are the servers always shitting themselves?
>>236855856What if high level ghouls/radiated creatures could drop the other junk and you could combine the plants with nuclear waste to get the parts you want?Or would that be too easy?
>>236855953thats already how it is
>tfw see a sloth fighting three yao guai>happy because I help the sloth win
Well this is my load out. My completely unplanned loadout.I'm going to swap gunsmith with explosive expert and I feel like I can re-spec three points of luck to something else and not miss them.
>>236855935A) If they actually are its because people over spawn shit at whitesprings which already has the highest mob densityB) They're usually not at all and its your own net shitting the bed.
>>236855935It wasnt an issue at all when the game first came out, had the best sessions those first few days. Has to be one of the few games that has gotten less stable over time.I blame shithead exploiters that cant manage an inventory personally. Really hope austin takes care of it soon whatever the cause.
>>236856012>rifleman>expert rifleman>master rifleman
>>236856005>after the fight, sloth shuffles over to something>my heart drops to my stomach
So when clans comes out will there be a /fog/ clan?
>>236855994You cant get the stuff outside nuke zones. I was trying to think of a way to get the mats outside those zones without being too easy.ugh
>>236856016>actually it's a client side issue :^)Classic
>>236855774Yeah idk, i was inside the office where the Mayor is when it started and there was nothing around me. I got spooked when I heard my characters heartbeating randomly in my headset. Then it happened again after healing right after the meter filled.
>>236856103Is there a problem with that?
>>236856148Because that's the reality anon, whether you like it or not.
>>236856217>everyone's having the same client side issues :^)>just fuggin way she goes
>>236856116>pan back camera even more>heart breaksThis is the worst feeling encounter i've had in 76. Anyone else know this pain?
>>236856103How does this actually work? I have rifleman 3 starred and a 1 star expert rifleman. Do these all buff together?
>>236856129>playing with 4channel peopleOnly once has this gone well for me, I'll never do it again.>>236856301Yes.
>>236856253>EveryoneYou're in a minority anon, not a majority.
>>236856005The only Sloth I've seen so far was a scorched sloth.I just put it out of its misery.
>>236856217>server starts shitting for our entire group consisting of people across several states>its just your internet bro :^)Go away
>>236856269Tame and bring back to your camp
>>236856332actually I'm a white guy
>>236856301Yes.It's more efficient to use the most cards you can if you've got limited points. Three rank one cards are better then one rank 3 card.
>>236856216those 3 x 20% perks are extremely inefficient and there are simply better perks to spend the points on
>>236856332But his e-celeb babysitter told him it was shit so it must be everyone!>>236856347I want a froggo pet.
>>236856337>Things that didn't happenYou don't have any friends, you're clearly and unlikable cunt, so don't lie.

>>236856327in gtag the 4chan crew was good, we helped each other out with heists and missions i can see it being just as successful in fo76
The gauss rifle, is the displayed damage from a fully charged shot or for an uncharged shot?Does anyone know what the damage difference between a charged and uncharged shot is?
I can't wait for them to nerf melee so that my VATScrits build reigns in as the meme-king meta build.
>>236856661but the cancer that was the leadership was uncontrollable
>>236847738>People have loved to hate giant, soulless corporate machines sine as long as I can remember.yeah, I know it's a tired old trope that I've seen a thousand times in both bad and good tellings and I'm incredibly bored of it.
I AM A PASSENGER
Post comfy camps.
>>236857210I just need to find a fucking instrument.Banjo, guitar, any of the stringed ones.
>guy shoots me>Shoot him back and 2 shot him>He spends the next 20 minutes seeking revenge>I didn't even take his junk.
>>236857441The only PvP I've ever been involved in was a guy with a bounty on him that got out of his power armor before attacking me, who was in power armor.Pretty sure he just wanted to get rid of his bounty.
>>236857385Buy them or just keep taking workshops
>>236857602>Buy themI would if I ever fucking saw one. But I've only seen fucking pianos.
>>236857641I see acoustic plans for sale frequently from Responders vendors.
>>236857682Like I said, only seen pianos from them every time I've checked.
>>236857210>no flamingos and/or garden gnomesNot comf!
Where can I find a shotgun? I'm still carrying around a level 1 shotgun I need at least a 10 or 15
My camp got deleted for the first time ever today. The thing is the camp that deleted it wasn't anywhere near mine. The no build zone between camps is fucking massive.Now I kind of want to set up my CAMP in one of the pre-existing structures that exist away from a map marker. You can generally build your camp at those.
>>236858019On enemies carrying shotguns.
>>236858019They're everywhere. Scorched and mole miners carry them so try the ash heap. You gotta get out of the forest area if you want things to level scale.
>>236857210My cozy small footprint camp>>236857441I tried to help some level 107 guy defend a workshop. For some reason he killed me but left my junk for like an hour.
What are good ways to find servers with nukes?
>>236858482It's pot luck reallyA gaggle of high levels in the same space on the map is a good bet though. Probably a squad going to launch.
Anybody know of a good place with a lot of barren flat land so i can put my razorgrain farm there?
>>236859143White spring golf course.
howdyshow me your favorite photos please
why does it cost so damn much to move your camp fuck me
>>236858019The nautical bar near Morgantown airport has a placed double barrel that's level 15 under the counter.
tell me, /fog/, why is it if a guy has 50 cap bounty on the map, but i go to find him and it's only 25 once i get in range to kill?
>>236859379And why is 50 cal MG plans over 1k caps!?
>>236859261>shitty filter and grain>your favoriteYou need to step up your game anon.
>>236859445>shittyit's film grain on a letterbox frame, it's not shitty if it's appropriate lad
>>236859412metaphor for life baka
>>236859404ty will check
>>236859512>it really tickles my picture to take a dark as shit photo that no one can tell whats going on it it>this is peak artAnon, the only way it could be worse is if you were a teenage girl who just discovered black and white photos.
>>236859683>he doesn't like Snyder-corewtf
>>236855017PA adds too much weightpack light and build right and you can ignore >80% of armor anyway
>>236859793What do you mean PA adds to much weight?
>>236859961The pieces weight a bunch once you're in your chassis.
i love Ellen!
>>236860013They weigh nothing when they're on the frame.
>>236860061>just going to starbucks in the glowing sea xoxo
>>236860061I love Heather!
>>236860013No they don't. Power armor pieces weight nothing on the frame.The only weight limiting factor for PA is the weight of fusion cores. And with the batteries included perk the PAs own added carry weight can more then make up for needing to carry FCs.
>>236860128And if you're just using an excavator set for the extra carry weight when over encumbered, just the core in the frame is enough unless if it is below 10 or so.
>Found a furious cryolaterHuh, this seems like it might actually be decent. If I had the correct build.Cryolater is a heavy weapon right? Maybe I can sell this thing.
>>236860237I think it's exotic like crossbows etc
>>236860291So it's not modified by any perks?
http://timedwatcher.blogspot.no/2018/12/fallout-1-sex-text-because-sexout-was.htmlFallout 1 Katja sex modAnd just to be clear, this isn't implied sex. I tried to make the three scenes as graphic through text as I could. Leave a comment on the blog if you want to help me figure out the direction of the mod
>>236860405probably modified by the energy weapons bobblehead
76 will go free2play in a desperate attempt to keep the playerbase from jumping to Obsidians game
Can't people just break open seventysix.esm and figure out what perks effect what and shit? Feels like our knowledge is far less than it should be
>>236860551I hope the game releases soon so all you /v/ermin will finally leave.
>>236835272Looks like Borderlands.
>>236859257I keep seeing nukes on Whitesprings, so that seems like a bad idea
>>236860631looks like borderlands 2 you meanborderlands 1 was a fun and good game after all
>>236860682He was memeing you. Even though Whitesprings would be peak comfy if not for the constant nuking and legendary farming.
>>236860682Cranberry bog has lots of open, flat land and bad neighbors.
>Outer worlds actually has the original fallouts dialogue systemBethesda is finished, they wont be able to get away with releasing shit like 76 when obsidian is actually making good games for the same audience
>Vampire handmade rifleNice>Level 25FUCK
>RadBeavers don't gnaw on your house if it's made of wood.I'm surprised there even is beavers in the game. But then that opens up a possibility for featuring areas up north of WV where beavers are even more prominent, like Canadiana.
>>236860523never played FO1 but this is tempting me to do so. I'd honestly play it if it was revamped to have a shit ton of sex dialogue. Like the entire damn game
Someone make a virgin starfield vs chad Outer worlds meme
Icepick or Winter Overhaul?
>>236860602Why don't you do it?
>>236835272>Destiny styled outfits and guns>In a world full of atmosphere, characters, stories, quests, lore designed by classic Obsidian
>>236861591And with the dialogue system of fallout 1 and 2No more "hate newspaper" shit
Someone make a virgin starfield vs chad Outer worlds meme.
Anyone with calibrated shocks know how much carry weight it gives?It gave 50 in 4, don't know if cut it in half like pocketed.
>>236861661make it yourself you meme-loving retard
>>236861509I don't know about the whole game, but I am considering content for the female character as well.
Starfield will literally be bethesda skyrim but in space, much like how fallout 4 was skyrim with guns and fallout 76 is just TSO but with guns. LMFAO ROFL TROFL.
>>236835272>anti-capitalist>space cowboysOh hey, that's coo->Destiny guns and armorfuckin lame.
>>236861856shut up cuck howard.
>>236861824Well its using the exact same engine, so yeah it probably will just be fallout 4 with a different coat of paint"Captain, another colony needs our help, ive put the coordinates onto your star-chart"
Virgin Starfield vs Chad Outer Rims vs Thad Cyberpunk.
>looking for NV mods for that yearly runthrough>find Skyrim Shouts>load up old melee character>unrelenting force works>fire breath kinda works>use elemental fury to see how fast fist can go with ingame perks an->game crashes after a few swings that i could barely seewelp
>>236861980Yeah memes xd we get it
>>236862007Did you pay full price for 76? is that why you're mad
>>236862007>>236862042Probably. Only people getting mad at outer rim and new vegas posters are butt blasted 76 posters who actually paid 60 bucks for a very shit game that doxes you.
What's the actual likelihood this, everything not just the new game, kills or severely harms bethesda rather than just harming the fallout franchise?How likely is it normie norman will go "ewww...bethesda game..." rather than "ewww...fallout game..."?
>go into blast zone as a Lv 8>get 30% of a level up in a single shot>someone died ontop of the bus>take his shit and put 100 weight worth of junk in my boxThanks niggers
>>236862228I dont think normies care, they dont know about game development and how ES6 is using the same engine as 76They'll just remember all the skyrim memes and buy it
>>236862228Gamers have memories of goldfish and rarely stick to what they say.
>>236862295I feel the same way but I gets brought up often enough at work where most don't even play videogames and the few that do beyond me are just casual joe looking for a good game to play during his 4 hours of free time a week but they all use social media to some degree so they've been exposed to the shitstorm in their own way. They don't seem to really get the issues at play but they know all the buzzwords like refunds and nylon bags and shit along with the game and company names. I honestly can't say I've seen them this "well" informed on anything game related before but I still feel like they'll never really look at a game cover for the companys name rather than the actual games name.
>Bethesda shot themselves in the foot again>Rage 2 isn't on Steam
>>236862708Meh RAGE was okay nothing special.
>>236862539I think the big danger for bethesda is other companies now. Obsidian is clearly targeting the disapointed fallout audience with outer worlds. Someone else could make a fantasy game to take the ES audience that still remembers how badly Bethesda fucked up beforeTheyd have to make an amazing game to win back faith, but it doesnt seem like they will

My brother and I are both trying, we love the series. But it's been real fucking hard
>>236862708>it's on the "bad" drm instead of the "good" drmPublishers don't want to give valve a 30% cut for nothing who knew
Remember: spread as many lies, half-truths, and negative rumours about Obsidian's new game as possible. Give every new bit of information about the game a negative connotation and mock it on /v/ and in YouTube comments sections. Highlight every remotely negative aspect about the game and ignore any positive aspects - twist the truth and lie if you must. We are going full smear mode against Obsidian's newest game - they did the same to Fallout 76; it's time to give them a taste of their own medicine. We need to ensure that this game is a widely ridiculed failure.
>>236862875I don't see 76 players desperately trying to falseflag
>>236862773No company makes games like Bethesda's though. Outer Worlds isn't going to play anything like a Bethesda game, so no one will care.
>>236862773HOLY SHIT FUCKING CHOICE IN A GAME AGAIN
>>236862968Yeah if Bethesda just had the GURPS and AD&D engines to work with like Black Isle then they'd surely make games better than Fallout, Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Tales of the Sword Ghost, Throne of Bhaal, Heart of Winter, Icewind Dale 2, Fallout 2, FALLOUT NEW VEGAS
I am just glad that my friend duped his handmade for me and in return I duped my explosive radium rifle for him
>>236863042None of those games are anything like a Bethesda game, nor do they try to be.
>>236863089Almost like Bethesda makes shit games and Black Isle makes the best RPGs ever to walk the earth.
>>236863042>>236863123the fuck are you rambling aboutback to codex with you
>>236862978Another game where all choices only affect post game slideshows and change nothing in the game itself.
>>236863043>28052not the only thing you duped huh
>>236862787i never get disconnected... Sure you dont have potato net?
>>236863137This isn't made by Bethesda you silly anonAlso remember Obsidian were given an extremely small time limit by bethesda to make new Vegas, and it was still better than anything bethesda ever madeImagine what they can do now that they're the ones in control
Can somebody gift me Fallout 76? I feel suicidal and i want to die, but before i do this, i want to play this firstname.lastname@example.org
>>236863137Doesn't feel like nothing when your Enclave bros roll in support to the Dam.
>>236862773This is what I was thinking as well more or less. If any flak remains I think it will just be anti-fallout not anti-bethesda.
>>236863208>Imagine what they can do now that they're the ones in controlWe already saw it, it was Pillars 1+2, and Tyranny, arguably some of the worst games they have ever made.
>>236863202I wish it was but no, my brother and I live in different cities with different ISPs and it always happens to the both of us at the same time - and I assume the rest of the server as well.who the fuck knows, maybe it's only the servers in my region (us east)
>>236863319If Pillars was so bad how'd they get to make a sequel? I thought Obsidian were always on life support
At least Fallout 4 was about endless radiant quests and grinding Legendary items. Fucking 76 all about grinding fucking everything, getting to keep nothing, and the endgame is finding artillery piece plans so that you can dupe Legendary items (new update takes away Legendary weapon drops on enemies)
>>236863231>dies in two hits from the poorly scaled Legion soliders
>>236863319>He thinks those games are badWas there too much player choice for your liking?
>>236863221if you're feeling suicidal you need to visit a mental hospital, not play games
>>236863362Now they're free to soar with the unlimited backing of Microsoft, just like Rare
>>236857210how do you fit the crafting stations in the tents? do you put them down first then the tents or what? the melee station always bugs out so theres only one small place under the tent that it fits
>>236863362>If Pillars was so bad how'd they get to make a sequel?Same reason Pillars got made, they have an insanely rabid fanbase that keeps trying to prop them up as the best thing since sliced bread when the rest of the industry already knows that they are one of the worst game devs out there which is why no major publisher wants to work with them at this point and they had to resort to E-begging just to get a game made.Its pretty telling when the only company willing to buy you is fucking Microsoft, a company that hasn't really made games that anyone cares about for years, and generally coasts on hardware sales.
I just want a well executed, online, pve-leaning mishmash of the best parts of the Stalker and Fallout series
>>236857210where is your stash container? i think the floor safe is the smallest one you can get
>>236863385>He things those games arne't bad>characters with no real depth>none of your choices mean shit>stock worlds that have nothing unique or interesting about them>poor man's Baldur;s Gate clonesIf I wanted to play a shitty version of Baldur's Gate, I would just go play the enhanced edition
>>236863509If they ever give players control oner servers and mods in 76 you'll get it
>>236863173We also duped junks and nuka colas and some stimpaks Also ammo This is his weapon in return for his service
>>236863539Pretty clear you never actually played pillars
>>236863631>ywn find your true raifuThis game is not fair
>>236863652Played through both, and the expansions for the first one.Pillars is an utterly generic and stock fantasy setting that lacks both the decades of background D&D has, or the interesting background lore of something like Elder Scrolls.The only thing your choices actually changed were post-game slideshows which basically all get retconed in the second game anyways making them even more worthless.
>>236863631since when does radium rifle weigh 49? that doesnt even make sense
>The same engine that made the big faction war in skyrim consist of 15 people is being used for ES6I dont understand. After the fuckup that is 76 how do they think they're going to get away with this
>>236863631why a radium rifle? seems like shit outside of maybe pvp
>>236863509What do you consider the best parts of fallout? I can only say camp building.
>>2368638044 point 9, also 90% decreased weight
>>236863859is the 4.9 value inclusive of the 90% reduction?
>>236863831even in pvp it would be subpar because it isnt anti armour
>>236862815But not giving Gaben money means we'll never get Half Life 3!
>>236863826something you need to keep in mind is an engine is like a car. you can upgrade parts but still call it the same car. the engine can and will undergo upgradesdoes that mean we'll get away from all the trademark shortfalls of the engine? not at all, but it is possible. fo76 for example received light rendering upgrades
I want a good legendary so bad but I consistently find shit.The best thing I found so far was an instigating M79 grenade launcher.
>>236863989>does that mean we'll get away from all the trademark shortfalls of the engine?The "shortfalls of the engine" have nothing to do with the engine but how they design games, stop conflating the two.
>>236863989nigga 76 has shadows that disappear and move depending on where the player is looking and godrays coming out of the groundthere is no upgrade
>>236863837I like that Fallout doesn't always take itself too seriously. Stalker can be pretty depressing and anxiety-inducing after a time. RPG elements of the older FO games, and then yeah base building of new Fallout (when it works)
>>236863942Armor doesn't do shit against the radiation m8.
>>236864058Godrays coming out of the ground are an issue with the ground meshes.I think they were coming through seams in the ground mesh or something.
>>236864039Let me ask you a question anon, have you ever seen a climbable ladder in a bethesda game?You have not, because the engine is so old and the core of it is so outdated that it is literally incapable of doing such a thing
>>236863989Most of the things that people blame the engine for-No vehicles-Low number of NPCs-No laddersHave nothing to do with the engine
>>236863734What's your ign I might wanna give you a two shot though we can try to do a vertibot landing pad exploit >>236863831not the best I know but my friend gave me his two shot explosive shotgun in return despite being level 5 and the CND is shit
>>236864149>Let me ask you a question anon, have you ever seen a climbable ladder in a bethesda game?You are aware that Bethesda themselves have stated that they got working ladders for the player, but didn't use them because of NPCs being unable to use them properly. This has nothing to do with the engine, but with coding.Also, other gamebryo games have working ladders.You have no idea what you are talking about.
>>236864039it's a mix of the engine, their design, and their skill. good tools can lead to better design. can't help the last one though>>236864058it has issues but there are upgrades nonetheless. do you suppose they could have made fo76 with morrowind's engine?
Everyone is talking about the giant fuckups and big "wtfs" like no fov, and always on mics, but holy damn, there are so many minor issues.>Gameplay is clunky AFnavigating trough the world feels like running on roller skates. Not actually skating, like trying to use them to run and walk. The menu works for a game that pauses itself, but it is stupidly fiddly for a "live" game with no pause. Navigating it is legit worse than vanilla Skyrim. The options menu is so fucking bad, Totalbiscuit is rotating in his grave, you can't turn of a STUPIDLY high set depth of field effect, and I'm pretty sure there is mouse acceleration going on as well, which I don't even understand why that even still gets put in games. No one wanted that EVER. Also, the game is clearly not even designed for multiplayer. If another player stands anywhere near you, all options to loot vanish in favour of "invite to trade" buttons, you get zero exp for enemies you couldn't get a hit in on, and most of the enemies die in one or two hits with only a couple big ones needing more than that, resulting in the game feeling like it's punishing you for not soloing. I also feel like the survival aspect adds nothing other than distracting me from enjoying the game and forcing me in regular intervals to gulp down food and water and watch my radiation rise in turn. Same goes for the weight that was added to nearly everything. forcing me to dump or drop every now and then because after carrying your main weapons, some ammo, some lockpics, fucking water food and other meds, you have fuck and all left for running around and looting.
>>236864149oh for fucks sake here we go
>>236864126almost all npcs are immune to the radiation damage, players in PA will have very high resistance to the ballistic and the radiation damage, against non pa its still a small amount and most of the ballistic damage would be reduced
>>236864225You can only upgrade something to a certain pointWhat bethesda is doing is like putting lots of really nice furniture in a house thats foundation will crumble in a week anyway
>>236864149It's not that the engine is incapable of it, it's that AI get wonky with ladders. Half Life has climbable ladders but NPCs never use them for the exact same reason. Bethesda decided to just not use them.Every game that has AI that can climb ladders the AI is always really easy to cheese or they act weird when they use them even with new games.
>>236864159I am not going to try and pretend to be a expert on gaming engines but this game falls apart when mulitple players are fighting enemies together. All that stuff you listed is irrelevant but players fighting together seems important for a multiplayer game.
>>236864293You are aware that the Sourceengine used in Portal 2 still has lots of the Quake engine code that was used to make the HL1 GoldSRC engine?Engines are iterative things that get upgraded constantly. There is no limit to how far you can upgrade them.
>>236864283I want to try gamma gun in pvp sometime. most people don't have radaway hotkeyed like stims. that's assuming they aren't in power armor, which they will be. using a 2h melee too
>>236864229I use the weight glitch every time I log on now and feel no regrets. at first I kinda liked it, having to pick and choose the tools I took to the field, but it quickly became tedious even with perks and fairly aggressive inventory management. agree with hunger/thirst too, I wish there was a perk that pulled food from my inventory as neededgonna suck when (if) they fix it
>>236864391supposedly it makes your screen shake a lot when the projectile hits, but its extremely gimmicky and would be neutered by radx stacking and ghoulish
>>236864363Theres no limit if you replace the outdated code that holds back the games, but bethesda doesnt do that, they keep it inTodd said they do that because "it allows us to work quickly and the modders know it well." Which speaks to the companies true philospohyChurn out a game as quickly and cheaply as possible then let modders fix it
>>236864541Except what Todd was talking about was the creation kit, not the engine.you really don't know jack shit about what you are talking about do you?
>>236863904yeah but i dont know if he has the perks to further reduce it
>>236863859If your rifle weighs 4.9 after a 90% reduction then without said reduction it should weigh 49.
>>236864590Im looking at the results. They didnt upgrade the engine for 76 and it shows, the game is a broken messMeanwhile you're saying "Yeah the game is broken and bethesda doesnt care but maybe theyll feel bad about that and upgrade it in the future"You are just a Todd Howard cum bucket
>>236864696>They didn't upgrade the engine for 76 and it showsThey did>the game is a broken messThe bugs have to do with coding errors, not the engine.You really are retarded aren't you?
>>236864736He's just repeating outrage youtuber talking points.
>>236864696>Meanwhile you're saying "Yeah the game is broken and bethesda doesnt care but maybe theyll feel bad about that and upgrade it in the future"I never said anything of the sort you massive straw manning fgt.
>>236864696A good deal of the broken shit is related in some way to the online portion. A part of the engine that is completely new.Other glitches are old ones that, frankly, didn't matter as much when the game was single player. Like the weight glitch. Completely irrelevant since anyone who wanted infinite weight would just use cheat codes.
>>236864736Mate the engine itself is the coding errors because its using 20 year old code that bethesda refuses to update
>>236835272I'll admit it looks endearing. This part actually made me smile.
I fucking hate Obsidian.
There are people in this very thread that think its acceptable that a glitch that was in fallout 4 (and fixed the day of release by modders) is still in fallout 76This is the level of bootlicker we are dealing with
>>236864875Personally I don't care for the type of humor they put forth.Then again the trailer doesn't feel like it's actually representative of the game to me.
>>236864875cheers luv da cavulry's ere
>>236864875>the incel's only instance of happiness is when a virtual woman is talking to him positively since she doesn't have the privilege of getting disgusted of him like real people doTypical.
>>236864875Seeing this made me realise the characters in Bethesda games never actually move or emote at all during conversation, they're so static and lifelessHopefully this game is better
I don't get this meme about engines and coding errors being mutually exclusive. They are software engines.
>>236865028The closest thing we got to a character emoting in conversation was Piper and it was horrible.
>>236864854Again, you REALLY have no fuckign idea how game engines work do you?The coding errors are from scripts that are only run by the engine but are not the engine itself. They could have made Fallout 76 in anything from Unreal, to Source, to Id Tech, and still had ALL of these exact same bugs because they are coding issues with things OTHER then the engine.
>>236865028It's quite clearly a cutscene, you dope.
>>236865060Angry gamers don't understand how game development works. It's been a problem for a long time but it's getting worse in recent years when you get clueless youtubers telling literally millions of people "just ditch your pipeleine and use UE4 for your next game bro"
>>236865110Which is still a lot nicer than what we get in bethesda games where everyone is a statue

>>236865140Mandatory programming classes in schools when?E-celeb purge when?
>>236864508Weight glitch? And yeah, the weight you get is stupidly low. In Fallout I usually carry a gun for my most used ammo types but dear lord is it difficult to keep equipment in this fucking game. Specially since you do need to keep a melee weapon as well, unless you want to waste ammo on scorched and molerats.
>>236865202Todd is that you
>>236865202I get your point, but comon, some people are still playing 76 and want to talk about it.
>>236865202This. People don't discuss Elder Scrolls here in spite of Fallout 3 commonly being known as "Oblivion with guns"It's not even the same genre.
>>236865252If you equip and unequip armor with "pocketed" trait really fast your carry weight goes down, when it goes below zero to minus you have unlimited carry weight. And if youre on pc you can disable depth of field, change fov, set the game to save your char data every 1 minute instead of every 10min, remove lense flares, motion blur and all that stupid shit.
>>236865329>Oblivion with guns>Fallout with magic>Skyrim with guns again?
>>236865537Actually Bethesdas next game, Starfield, will likely be "Fallout in space"The comparison will probably be even stronger since Fallout already is full of scifi elements. Wouldn't be surprised if the laser rifle is in there as an easter egg.
I'm getting really fucking pissed off with the amount of shit people are giving Bethesda. Honestly at this point I hope Bethesda never makes another Fallout game and just permanently sits on the title, not selling it to anybody. Fallout fans have shown themselves to be a collection of autistic self-entitled cuntish retarded manchildren that don't deserve any new Fallout titles. From henceforth Bethesda should just fully focus on The Elder Scrolls - a game series that has always been superior to and more creative than the mediocre Fallout series, and has a player-base/fan-base that actually likes and appreciates Bethesda and isn't full of entitled manchildren.
>from the creators of the original fallout and new vegasBased.
My biggest hope for starfield is that it actually has an interesting plotBut bethesda games always have dogshit plots and writing so I doubt it, probably just some generic "you are the chosen one, pls save space from bad man"
>>236865862t. hasn't played any bethesda gamesFuck off
>>236865908>Must find dad>Must find son>Must kill bad dragon because me chosen oneSo intriguing and interesting
>>236865524I did know about the custom .ini but I don't really consider it an adequate fix, as this is something you really, really NEED to have in the actual game. Sure you and me, we use it, but of the total playerbase how many people will bother with editing .ini files? 2%? And of course it is annoying as fuck having to waddle trough config files to make your game not ass. btw, do the challenges reset with a new character? Can you actually quick farm atoms by just making new ones and doing the first few challenges again?
Who else Brahmin Farmin'? Gotta get that fertilizer boy. They take so much fucking budget though.
Most thing blamed on the engine have more to do with game design. For exampleThe small towns and number of NPCs are the result of several things Bethesda games do that others don't1. Bethesda games have tons of physics enabled objects in every cell, which by itself takes up a lot of processing power, but it also saves all those objects into the data when they get moved, so that they stayed moved in thier ew spot until the cell resets in 10-30 days. This is different compared to games like GTA, RDR 2, or Witcher 3, where basically chignon can be moved, and what little can be moved gets purged and reset the moment you leave the area.2. Bethesda game handle NPC body and clothing as separate objects. In a Bethesda game, an NPCs body, under armor, 6 armor pieces, glasses, face covering, weapon, and several weapon mods, get rendered as separate objects. This is why you can take off NPC clothing in the game and it dynamically disappears from their body. In comparison, in games like GTA, RDR2, and Witcher 3, you can't remove NPC clothing because most NPCs have no body under their clothes, what parts of their body you can see are just stitched onto their clothes, and they are hollow under their clothes. A single Bethesda NPC can have enough object on them to be rendering the same amount as 6-7 NPCs in something like GTA.3. Likewise Bethesda games handle scripts differently. In a Bethesda game, every named NPC has their own personal script, and even many generic guards have their own personal scripts that determine how they move throughout the day. Even walking into something like Diamond City can land you in a situation where there are 80+ scripts running at once, just in that small area. This different from games like GTA, RDR2, and Wticher 3 where NPCs in larger towns are all largely controlled by one massive generic NPC script that just makes them walk around the block all day.Its these design decision that Bethesda makes that limit the NPC/towns, not the engine
>>236865837They actually put effort in Elder Scrolls games, that's the thing.They use the Fallout franchise as testing grounds for their new Elder Scrolls games. Their Fallout games are all rotting garbage, but their Elder Scrolls game are fairly fun.
>>236865858oof, having it so blown up, seeing her real eyes und the contact lenses is kinda unsettling.
>>236865943Nothing about being the chosen one there, retard. Unlike the classic Fallout games, one of which has a protagonist literally named "The Chosen One".
>>236865943You know you can do this with any game right?>Must find water chip>Must find Geck>Gotta find the guy who shot me >:((
>>236865974>Using a buried trucks bed as a gardenCute.
>>236866005>They actually put effort in elder scrolls games>when skyrim existsCant wait to explore ES6 capital city, maybe itll have 20 citizens instead of skyrims 15
>>236865862The plot of Starfield is probably going to be you looking for your lost spouse or some shit and then getting wrapped up in a cheesy war between the clearly evil space nazis and some kind of hero faction based off of some old-world shit with a whole bunch of one-note extra factions for you to join and beat up the other factions with, calling it now.
>>236866058Skyrim is better than Fallout 3, 4 and 76, sadly. And it is way more fun too.
>>236866058Funny that Skyrim, one of the most mediocre entries in the TES series, has been more successful than any Fallout game.
>>236866094Thats a pretty fucking low bar thoughSkyrim was objectively a 5/10 game
>>236866058>when skyrim existsYeah Skyrim is an alright game
>>236866005Pretty much. The difference between Fallout 3 and Skyrim is a lot bigger then the different between Oblivion and Fallout 3 or Skyrim and Fallout 4.Just for comparison Fallout 3 uses skeletons straight from Oblivion while Fallout 4 uses Skyrim skeletons. Both just with a different texture to better fit the setting.
>>236865993>Get out of here with your critical thinking, this is supposed to be a bethesda-hate circlejerk!!!!but really though, excellent post.
>>236866094Eh, less clunky and more streamlines maybe, but better? I mean than 76 certainly. but the rest? Hardly. If you ask me, they're all shit, in the end it comes down to which side quests you like the most. As none of them have a main quest worth a fucking damn.
>>236866058The small cities are largely because people did nothing but complain that Vivec and the Imperial City were too large and confusing to walk around in and find stuff.
>>236866228>As none of them have a main quest worth a fucking damn.Why do you keep lying?
>>236866124I disagreeI think Skyrim is a 7/10game
>>236865993In Skyrim they even simplified the armor system to just torso, boots hand and head to help reduce the stress number 2 causes.Then in Fallout 4 the armor is almost back to Morrowind level complexity. Not quite but actually quite close.
>>236835272Microsoft will buy Bethesda and put Obsidian in charge of Fallout and TES, screenshot this
>>236866124Skyrim is literallyLITERALLYa 9/10 game
>>236866450Going to the next gen hardware helps.Maybe if Starfield really is next gen they can have a couple dozen npcs in a town.
I know I shouldn't be, but I'm a bit excited for TES 6's mapFallout 76's map is one of the best worlds Bethesda has made>>236866483>Microsoft will buy BethesdaT-that's not going to happen
Frankly the small city size in Skyrim never bothered me. Most of the cities were large enough for their purpose and you don't really realize how small they are at ground level on foot.The main issue I had with Fallout 4 in comparison is that it just didn't have enough. Diamond City was really the only major settlement in the entire game. Vault 81, Goodneighboor and Bunker Hill are all about the size of a Skyrim village and they're the only other major settlements.
>>236866380I think Skyrim's MQ would've been OK if they just made the ending not shitAnd I unironically think Fallout 4 was pretty close to having an amazing MQ.All they had to do was just make your choices matter, or at least show them in the end slides
>>236866450This is actually incorrect. they merged torso and pants because most of the Nordic designs they came up with covered up the pants area with skirts or w/e anyways, so there was no need to keep them separate.Saving performance was just a bonus
>>236866380F3>follow your dads breadcrums for a water purifier. Literally everyone has the same plan and is fighting you for who gets to turn it onSkyrim>Supposedly super intelligent dragon "general" comes back and sends single dragons to random ass villages and bumfuck nowhere to attack nothing in particular. Luckily you're born with the batman-toolbelt gene, Having that one weird trick that happens to be able to take him out. Dragons hate him!F4>your son is kidnapped and your spouse is killed. You are SUPER broken up and distraught about it, unless you're doing a sidequest or hooking up with someone else, but you care about your son as soon as you go back to diamond city to continue, honest! 76>Following breadcrumbs again, listening to shit that has happened instead of making or even SEEING shit happenI'm sorry anon, but the last 10 years of bethesda games are dogshit for main story, the only interesting parts are the sidequests and even they are seriously hit and miss.I mean, you can say "But I enjoy them!" which is valid, but you enjoying them doesn't mean that they're good. It just means that you enjoy them. For some reason.
>>236866732Fuck end slides, that crutch of mid 90's RPGs need to die.Fallout 4 actually having the Institute be blown into a giant crater, the BoS airship a ruined wreck across the airport, and your winning faction taking up outposts across the map, and many NPCs and the radio talking about who won, was more in-game consequence for your actions then most games achieve.
>>236866654It would be a rounding error in Microsoft's fiscal yearIf the security failure results in heavy enough fines from GDPR especially, but also US class action suit, Zenimax might just decide to sell. Obsidian was in a weak position after Pillars 2 came out weaker than expected, and after losing money on the White March 1&2 DLC when Microsoft pulled them under their warm and sweaty arm.
>>236866732I like how in Fallout 4 you do see an effect in the world when your chosen faction sets up permanent checkpoints across the map. Helps it feel like you've actually changed something.It's also why I liked the civil war in Skyrim. I even liked how some forts start out controlled by bandits, but if you clear them out the local faction take them over when the area respawns even if you haven't started the civil war quests yet.
>>236866832>Literally everyone has the same plan and is fighting you for who gets to turn it onNot him, but this is 100% bullshit, and the worst reductio ad absurdum.Might as well claim all the factions in New Vegas are fighting over the dam has the same plan "take over the Mojave!"
Fallout 4 was bad because it didn't give you the option to be a cunt
>>236865960>do the challenges reset with a new characteryes
>>236866923Then I guess you loved Nuka World.
>>236866923But it did, edgy liar.
I've server hopped 5 times now in the hopes I will find a living Evan scorched so I can kill him to complete quest. Fucking Bethesda AAAAHHHHH
>>236866919Fallout 3s greatest failing was that there was no option to side with the Enclave join up with Colonel Autumn.
>>236867098It doesnt, the F4 protagonist can only ever have 1 personality because of the lack of choices and voice acting and its "very nice family man that is occasionaly sarcastic"
>>236863631that gun's freaking insane, gratsalso, has anyone unlocked silencer for radium rifle? does it exist?
Also wished Bethesda made the Minuteman and Railroad a bit better>>236866836>>236866848Yeah I guess this makes up for the end slides. Fallout 4 still pisses me off though. All Bethesda had to do was keep the skill system for dialogue skill checks and not use a voice protagonist and normalfags would've called Fallout 4 one of the best RPGs of all time.
>>236867171Actually, that is Fallout 3's greatest strength; it cucked fascist fuccbois like you.
>>236867171Autumn has zero reason to want to let you join him.Up until the BoS basically Dues ex Machina fixes Liberty Prime he was in a 100% unstoppable position without you.
>>236867227They didn't need to keep the skill system for dialog checks. The perk system assumed every function that skill systems did in previous games.What they needed were dialog perk checks. Something that they did use a bit in DLC. Robotics expect let you skip entire sections of Nuka World quests with a dialog check.
>>236866848I think you're vastly underestimating how much money ZeniMax has. They can sit on the Fallout IP until the heat death of the universe and they won't get an offer big enough to make them sell.>>236867227Voiced protag was put in 4 as a direct result of IGN and Gamespot reviews calling the absence a weakness of 3. You have them to thank for it.
>>236866923You could easily be a cunt in 4.Stuff like:>Backstabbing Wolfgang by saying you'll help him but then choosing to help Trudy instead>Selling that ghoul kid in the fridge to slavers>literally trying to do anything that makes Strong happy>Dicking over Bobbi No-Nose during the end of The Dig>Dicking over Paul and Henry during Diamond City Blues and killing them after the drug raid portion of the quest is said and done>Lying to Malcolm Latimer about straight murdering his son in Diamond City Blues and then going along with his plan to murder Marowski>The entirety of the Nuka World DLCJust to name a few examples of moments where you can be a massive cockfaced weasel to other people.Granted I kinda wish there was more stuff akin to what you could do in NV but eh.
>>236867384>Dicking over Bobbi No-Nose during the end of The DigThat's the good and moral ending though.
>>236866832F1>find waterchip, kill mutantF2>find geck, kill mutantNV>find platinum chip, take damMeanwhile 3, 4 and Skyrim have actually interesting and emotional MQs with depth, significance and interest.
>>236867171Why the fuck would you side with somebody who killed your father, tortured you and fully intended to kill you once you were no longer needed?
>>236867497>Meanwhile 3, 4 and Skyrim have actually interesting and emotional MQs with depth, significance and interest.Listen buddyI enjoyed Skyrim's MQ, but I don't know about this
>>236867568Because I believe in the cause and am willing to look past what are petty differences in the grand scheme of things.
>>236866732Problem is that F4 main quest doesn't fucking work with an open world game. Would have been great for something linear, because then you would actually have an arc, but playing F4 I just felt the most insencere parent in the world, going from the dramatic death and kidnapping to fucking everything that moved for an EXP bonus, and a passive perk. >>236866923The issue is that F4 hinders roleplay from the get go.As a female you are a successful lawyer, as male you are a vet. Roleplay options that are out:>virgin>loner>playboy/whore>idiot>never killed anyone / pacifist>beggar>any other previous job you might have imagined for your characterAnd it doesn't even come with relevant perks, like speech and charisma for females, and energy weapons for males. So your roleplay start is always limited to "I used to live a happy family life BUT THEN". I know it's nitpicky, but it really bothers me, because the roleplay was such a big part of the series originally. Also the fact that you can't kill anybody. No decisions you can make. Want to kill Bobbi? Only if you wait for the moment were we tell you she can be killed now! If you attack her before, she'll just sit down and then continue talking. Can't have you make your own decisions, or end your own questlines! No, for quests you have two choices! You ignore them in perpetuity, or you do them. Move along now.And yeah, your dialogue choices are a fucking joke too, as it's always the same 4 things "something unrelated, accept later, yes, yes but snappy" every. single. fucking. time.
>>236867683I get the feeling you just need a sugar daddy to order you around
>>236867703Fallout 4 was clearly designed around the male protagonist and the female one was more of an after thought.It would have made more sense if the player character was always the veteran and the spouse was always the lawyer.
>>236867703>virgin>loner>idiotSo you're angry that you can't self-insert?
>>236867703>Can't have you make your own decisions, or end your own questlines!And they fucking perfected this in Morrowind."Shit's fucked since you killed somebody vital, you should probably reload the autosave from when you entered this building if you care about the main quest."
>>236867703>The issue is that F4 hinders roleplay from the get go.No more then Fallout 1/2 did in constraining you to a Vault/Village dweller background which automatically rules out a massive list of possible background options thats far more extensive then what Fallout 4 limits.
>>236867703To be fair all we know is they have a diploma in law, it doesn't mean they were necessarily a lawyer or that they practiced law. It's implied in the opening that they haven't used their qualifications recently (or at all) and some of the stuff that openly stated they were a lawyer/practiced law was cut from the game (e.g. the terminal in the house, part of the interview with Piper). They made it unspecific as to not limit roleplay choice as much.
>>236867497The difference there is that those games put a heavier emphasis of you making your own story along the way. There the main plot is just the thread your d&d DM is pulling you on along to find all these other setups along the way, they are deliberately barebones so you explore the world and make your own decisions. Of the Bethesda made ones, F3 arguably did this the best as "follow dad" was just another excuse to find sidequests, but it felt a bit obviously bread-crummy at times. The Bethesda games though, actively TRIED to tell an engaging story and fell pretty much flat on their face. In Skyrims case because the quest was fucking dumb, (and dear lord, an ancient evil awakens but you are the chosen one is a BIT played out, leave that to Final Fantasy please) or in F4 it gets stupider the more sidequests you do as all sense of urgency is lost. Fuck, I fucked around so much building settlements, doing sidequests and collecting shit, Shaun might have gotten to that age naturally while I was fucking around.
>>236867813Kek. but jokes aside, playing in outlandish ways has always been a favourite in fallout games. "these weapons only" "sneak only" "speech only" "violence only" "kill literally everyone. every. single. npc" shit like that, or different backgrounds>>236867823Aye, was one of my favourites. It told you that you fucked up but it was like "hey it's an RPG, it's your game, you can't see the ending but keep going if you want. You do you buddy". >>236867865Fair point, but I still think "random vault dweller" leaves more options than F4 does. You're in there for generations, you could be anything when you come out. >>236868042I'm pretty sure some PC terminal mentions her being a good lawyer, might be wrong though because honestly who cares about terminal lore.
>>236868596There's a terminal that mentions the male MC, none that mention the female to my knowledge. There was a cut terminal in your home in Sanctuary that mentioned some legal cases they were working on though, and a cut line of dialogue with Piper where you can mention practising law.Come to think of it though, doesn't one of the robots on the USS Constitution recognise you as a lawyer?
>>236868831Pretty sure they do. It's been a while though.
The problem with Bethesda's Fallout were never "character has a backstory" because New Vegas was the first one to actually have a character with a vague enough backstory, mostly just "you worked as a courier" and that's it.Fallout 1, you're a vault dweller, you can't be a wastelander or anything like that.Fallout 2, you're an Arroyan citizen, descendant of the Vault Dweller.But what these games got right is that after that it allowed you to construct your character in the game world.Fallout 3 got some of it right with the early childhood things, so despite having a way restricted background than 1 and 2, it actually allowed you to play the childhood of the character, if you wanted to be a cunt, do this or that,kill the overseer, bully Amata, etc, I really enjoyed the childhood portion of Fallout 3 even as restricted as it was.But Fallout 4 lacks that. You're either a good family man or a sarcastic family man.Fallout 2 had one ending only, right? It's been a while but you just defeat the Enclave cause they're the big baddies, so the amount of endings is not the problem in Fallout 3 or 4, the problem is THE endings themselves.You couldn't even join them like you could join The Master in Fallout 1. But the choices you did in the game impacted the ending slides, the closure.That's the problem with Fallout 3 and 4, you never feel or see the what-could-be, the what-if scenario that your choices made in the future game world.It is not lack of endings, restricted backstory or anything like that, it is the impact that the player has in the game world, which in Fallout 3 and 4 you have none - Megaton was alright I guess.
>>236867205It exist but I need to craft more radium rifles to get it
>>236867370If Bethesda was and continued to be a liability draining the financial power of that IP, then Microsoft steps in with a juicy check to take away all of their problems, it's not completely impossible to see
