They said that the game is in pre-production 4 months into 2018 so assuming they start working on it in 2019 and assuming the game takes 4 years it will come out in late 2023. Covid might have delayed production by few months so early 2024 is a conservative guess

fallout 4 is a good game.

Fallout 76 isn't even part of the main series or has anything to do with the main studio. It is like ESO online

What really matters is how Starfield will perform and it will affect when TES6 will be released

FO4's is made in a way that nothing interesting happens because everything feels small and scripted.

New vegas is kind of the same but the vibe is way better, fallout 3 is in between those two, but it feels less of a drag.

If anything, Tevinter is probably the best argument for pro-mage society, simply because it has continued to exist despite the best efforts of the entire Qunari host to destroy it. The Qunari aren't shy about the fact their faith specifically demands that they conquer the world and subjugate all other peoples, and their seemingly endless armies of giants give them a decent chance at making it happen. However, because Tevinter exists, they can't afford to make any real move of consequence against the rest of Thedas, because their armies are tied up trying to destroy the Imperium. And why? Tevinter has been in a state of decline for centuries owing to its tremendous decadence and corruption, has lost nearly all of its former influence, and is more or less consigned to the dustbin of history by the other nations of Thedas, but Tevinter has one thing that those other nations sorely lack: namely, comically excessive amounts of magepower. Because of this, a dying country on the brink of self-inflicted extinction is able to stop the most terrifying army in the world in its tracks.

>But then Nero appears in the actual fucking storyline

I gotta say, my feelings about the future remakes has gone from hopefully optimistic to nervously pessimistic. I didn't even mind the time travel stuff, there's story potential there (assuming they don't fuck it up). But bringing back these characters that look like Deviant art OCs and are Nomura at his most self indulgent design wise was horrible. What the fuck are they thinking?

And the worst part is that if THEY are back, it's almost inevitable that Genesis is gonna come back too, and he's the fucking worst. If this turns into some convoluted KH tier hodgepodge of "cool" anime characters, I'm going to be really let down.

>what has to happen before you say it's good or bad?
I have to actually see the things in the game and not just a few frames in a trailer

> in fact I'm going to guess you're willing to say it's good so far,
I did like Part 1, overall. My main complaints about the game are structural in that I would have liked to have more freedom to just fuck around doing general RPG stuff. Hunts, normal sidequests that can be done whenever, etc. It felt a little too linear to me, to the extent that it made me feel like there was a set amount of enemy encounters in the game, but my hope is that Part 2 will be more open as we're not confined to Midgar anymore.

>but if anyone calls it bad, you bring up this "there's no way to know if it's good or bad yet" argument.
If you didn't like the self-contained game and story elements that are already there, then that's that. But how are you judging the quality of this loop shit when we basically got a prologue and a trailer for a DLC that may or may not even have any critical story?

>Why would you be upset about the new game potentially going into new and unexpected directions
It's the entire idea around it that's retarded.
>Everybody already knows who Sephiroth is!
>Everybody already knows Aeris/th dies!

It's like saying everybody already knows the "I'll be back" line is from a Terminator movie, but haven't actually seen Terminator 2 to understand the context behind the line coupled with the powerful, dramatic scene it was used in. There's plenty of people out there that don't actually KNOW Sephiroth, but maybe OF him--or know WHY Aeris/th dies, only OF her death, but Kitase only thinks in broad strokes and doesn't care about subtly, so why not dumb it down and cater to modern audiences/turbo fangirls and just throw Sephiroth around like a neon beach ball.

Hear hear, but it’s Takahashi’s fault. He should have learned the lesson from XG, not to plan an epic space opera spanning multiple episodes assuming you’re going to be able to make all episodes before you even launch the first entry, because you won’t unless the game is good. EP1 looked awful and had terrible slow and boring gameplay and it was a slug. I’m speaking as a fan! Only hardcore fans could muster it, always looking for the payoffs for the setups that he was building, expecting to be blown away like in XG. But as far as gameplay it was not a fun experience at all until EP3 when they seemed to have found their rhythm. But alas, it was too late.

I'm going to be honest, when it came to "shocking and unusual" lore Xenogears sometimes felt like watered down SMT2.

You are entitled to your opinion.
I might pic it up SMT2 then. Sounds like a treat for those who like “unusual lore”.
>>
>>1650920
I've played both and I wouldn't say that at all, SMT2 has the coolest setting out of all of the mainline entries though.

They didn't succeed in all areas, like you said the Esper system is half-baked and ends up devolving gameplay to magic spam and undermining the individual character abilities, but the operatic theming, sheer amount of content, Uematsu going ham on the soundtrack, all of it comes together
