Will obsidian be making another Fallout?
Will they have to use the shitty dialogue system? And will they bring back skills?
At best hope for a better implemented dialog wheel, like in Alpha Protocol and maybe some return of the skills/better integration of skills into the dialog. And for the actual lines to be written better.
I'd want them to do it properly again, but it s best to not hope for such things.
Meh if it's another desert walking simulator then who cares.
>BUT M-MUH JINGLE JANGLE
It was good but I couldn't be bothered to finish it. I put 100 hours into FO3 though, and 4 is fantastic so I think obsidian could do an amazing job as long as they focus on game play over autism.
> I can't believe Fallout 4 was such a massive disappointment
Honestly almost everyone here I think knew it would be bad, but holy shit they still managed to blow me away with how shit Fallout 4 was.
Ha ha faggot
I expected it to be terrible and it turned out to be fantastic.
The most we can expect is maybe some DLC from them, but another game is highly unlikely.
F4 is built in a way so there's no room to expand or improve. It worked with 3 because 3 was already an empty game (both in terms of gameplay, perks, and the world). Making a spin-off would require a) reusing the exact same perks/level system, or b) making the game from scratch. The latter would take too long, and the former wouldn't do good for sales, because who wants to play the exact same game twice?
Even if they do go with option A, they still need to fix the dialogue. Unfortunately voiced protags are becoming the norm, so to go from having a fully voiced character to no dialogue whatsoever would be seen as a downgrade. Their best bet would be to give you multiple voices to choose from a la Saint's Row 3, but it would take months to record all that dialogue.
Finally, there isn't much more they can add. NV was so good because it added so much more, such as weapon mods, more perks, factions, and better combat. 4 pretty much incorporates roughly 90% of NV's ideas (albeit not very well), so unless they can find even more stuff to add, Bethesda won't see a point in releasing a spin-off.
tl;dr Don't expect an Obsidian Fallout anytime in the future.
I think the game is very enjoyable. The dialogues feel less stiff this way and be honest, Fallout 3 / NV didn't have dialogue more complex than this anyway. All the different options always did was just some further interrogation, not much more.
Instead, we get atmospheric scenes and - which I fucking love - characters with some depth that open themselves to you step by step, making it very rewarding to play with NPCs and change them every now and then.
The only thing that's really shitty is the generic quests. I don't care about random settlers and "blow up monsters in dat region xd" gets dull pretty fast.
