I like the retro-future aesthetic and the pedigree is obviously top notch, I'm just need more details about how the game actually plays.

This will be the most Fallout game of this gen.

Question...if 2K owns this license and obviously Bethesda owns Fallout, how does Obsidian make any more Fallouts without getting sued? Running out of ascetics.

More interested in this than I was in Fallout 4 or New Vegas (finally a Bethesda/Obsidian game that doesn't look like ass), but really not loving the tone and humor.

Could just be the trailer getting some lame gags to to throw into a quick trailer, but as of now I'm not loving that aspect of it.

I thought that was a grown ass man with a job, being engaged and having a house I was above letting out a high pitched sound and excitedly shaking my arms in response to something.

Evidently I was wrong.

Super curious to see if this will get a sequel. I’m assuming it will be successful, but Take Two one the publishing rights for the first so they must have some sort of right of first refusal?

Everything looked great about this BUT then saw that it was yet another new rpg that is forced first person. Why? Why are newer rpgs doing this? Cyberpunk and now this, there are plenty of us that prefer to play in third person, even in TES/Fallout games. Just make it an optional choice and let the players have that choice instead of forcing it upon them.

Having force first person really sucks the fun out of rpgs when it comes to customization aspect, getting new armor/weapons, making your characters visual appearance, etc feel completely useless since you won't ever see those for the vast majority of playing.

Hell yeah, I love the tone and quirkiness that they’re shooting for.

This is my Fallout 4. I won't say New Vegas 2 because it's not an RPG.
It’s an RPG, though? New Vegas was a first person shooter RPG as well (that you could happen to play really jankily in third person).

I feel your pain :(

If they own the rights to a sequel wouldn’t we say they may as well be de facto owners of the IP?

How do you continue the IP without a sequel?
More accurate to say they have first rights of refusal on the sequel. Likely Microsoft would just make a deal with them (buy out their contract) if they want to make a sequel.

Less development time since you don't have to ensure everything works from 3rd person and the impact to the scenes is the same. That said, I do wish there was an option for that. Even in Fallout/Skyrim I sometimes use 3rd person perspective. That said, it won't stop me from enjoying the game.
