I’ve always been a fan of Fallout, a big fan of Fallout. I’ve played countless hours with Fallout 3, played Fallout and Fallout 2 and also the looked upon, Fallout: Tactics. I’ve seen all of them through to conclusion, connected with Fallout 3 emotionally and it became one of my favorite videogames of 2008. Truthfully, the build up to Fallout 4 was emotional and years of patiently waiting for something to drop, now we’re 4 weeks away.
Witnessing Fallout 4 in motion was more then enough to sell me. The world looked more like 1950’s America then Fallout 3 did, the new look of Nuka Cola, the new weapons, awash with color. A brighter-looking Fallout. A “happier” looking Fallout. You would expect after 200 years, the world would be depressed but it’s actually not.
What a good-looking videogame, Fallout 4 is. It’s absolutely beautiful. There was plenty for a throwback to 2008 when Fallout 3 released, the gameplay harked back to Fallout 3 while tearing down old things and building new things but you have to hand it to Todd Howard, that man knows how to make a good videogame if Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is any indication.
The engine that Fallout 4 is running on is a supercharged rebooted Creation Engine that powered The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim back in 2011. Fallout 4 will land on November 10th, a day before the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Further echoes of Fallout 3 is the V.A.T.S ( Vault-Tec Targeting System.), it’s a rebooted and retooled version of the same V.A.T.S that was in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, everything about Fallout 4 seems to retooled which I love and it isn’t reskinning much of anything.
Everything that I’ve seen on Fallout 4 since June of 2015 as been so far really good. A making of a very good videogame and my personal Game of the Year. I’m buying a really fancy train ticket to the end of the road, and at the end of the road, Fallout 4 will be waiting for me in open arms.
We’re just 4 weeks away from the full release day, let us ride in unison now. Go Fallout 4!
