    It has been replaced with a 3 minute video showing a "movie" where the countdown was. Looks like you are a survivor from bunker 111. Not sure where that would have been, but it looks like they have flying devices now and bigger towns.

    I dug through this yesterday. Pieced together some javascript variables and came up with an API link that returned the "Countdown Reveal" content in JSON. It was a trailer for some Fallout 3 DLC so I figured it was just going to be a Fallout 4 teaser trailer and they were using the DLC trailer as a placeholder. Guess I was right.

    And what an underwhelming trailer it was.

    Not for this guy! Imma ride this hype train like a prom date! I'm a pretty huge Wasteland/Fallout fan so this is kind of great for me.

    It was an OK trailer. I am excited for a new Fallout game, but the trailer doesn't surprise or wow you in any way.

    That's true. I think it could have just been a logo with Ron Perlman overtop and I'd still be excited.

    DUDE, this is the PC gaming forum, WHERE IS YOUR PC? Hope the quest for acquisition is going well, i've yet to see you in game, we can still use more for TSW!

    No joke. I actually had to cancel the order because the day, the DAY i ordered it my transmission died. I can't even find humor in it anymore. I just want to game again but everything keeps getting in the way. Makes me want to cry.

    Fallout 3 vs Fallout 4

    Well i wanted to point out that:
    1. This game is coming out for ps4, xbox one and pc. So maybe this should be in a general forum.
    2. Trailer did not look that good. This game will probably come out in 2016. Graphics should be better than this.
    3. Took them 7 years for this right? I hope this is huge. I mean witcher 3 huge. Witcher set a new standard for next Gen games for me. Anything short of that is not worth $60 from me.

    Not every game is developed in the same way. Fallout games have never been a graphics tech demo. They have always looked decent for their time period but never wow'ed you. This is more of the same. They spend more time in other places of the game instead of creating a game that is boring but pretty like the Crysis games. Once actual gameplay comes out people will change there tune and find something else to whine about. Witcher 3 had bullshit trailers that misrepresented the graphics to a small degree on release. Watch Dogs was a much more severe case of trailers being a big old liefest.


    This was posted in the MISC section. There isn't a section dedicated to just RPG's. You need to chill out with your touchy feelings about consoles vs PC's. The facts about the hardware are what they are and any fanboyism is fun for a joke but silly if taken seriously.

    Can we get over this false dichotomy that a game can either look good OR have an interesting story? Some have neither, some have both.

    And the only thing that bothers me in Witcher 3 (that I haven't been able to fix yet) is how weird the trees sometimes look. Something about the up close textures.

    That's true, and the game still has some funny bugs in it. Hopefully they'll fix them soon. They seem to be working on it all the time. They fixed the cow/crown making exploit in a most funny way. They put a high level mob in the area if u try to do it. lol. It's hilarious.
