The production values look great for a 'AA' game, but I do wonder how the budget will impact the scope of the game.
I also don't love the hammy-ness level of the humor. The original Fallout was dark with a sprinkling of absurdist humor, not the other way around. Hopefully they're playing up the humor for the trailer but the game itself will have more of an emotional range.
This is EXACTLY what I wanted. New Vegas meets Mass Effect with meaningful dialogue options, tons of room for player choice, and companions with fleshed out back stories and moldable relationships. It's instantly my most wanted [confirmed] 2019 release.
Haha. Yeah, I don't know. I'm a huge space opera/adventure diehard, but this... I don't know, kitsch? Yeah. Kitsch is the word for it, I guess. (I'm exhausted. lol) But yeah, the kitsch, the intentional cheekiness of sorts, it's never really my scene.
Like I said, though. I'm still there Day 1! I have absolute confidence I'll dig it anyway.
This is it guys. This is the Fallout 1, 2 and Arcanum successor we've been waiting for.
Right on the heels of Bethesda shitting the bed with the Fallout franchise, Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky swoop in to pick up the pieces. I simply cannot wait.
Not sure why people keep saying it.
It doesn't resemble modern Fallout that much, and it surely doesn't resemble the Fallout games Tim Cain actually directed.
That said, both the directors for this game were also the lead for Vampire Bloodlines, and GOD if I'm hoping some of that will show in this one, way more than I care about any Fallout resemblance.
