Ugh! I keep feeling like I'm lvling too quickly. I do 2 main quests and 5 sidequests and contracts turn gray. I do 5 sidequests/contracts and the main quests turn green/gray. There's a lvl 11 and lvl 15 quest in Skalige while I'm lvl 18 doing the lvl 12 main quest in Novigrad still, and it would feel really weird to go to Skalige already before at least Novigrad is done let alone the rest of Velen.

I still can't really get into the game because it keeps nagging at me: Am I doing this all in the wrong order and am I skipping content right now?

The completionist within me can't stfu!

Nice patch, but I don't understand why they reduced the amount of coin that chest and creatures give. Its hard enough getting Coin in this game without them making it even harder now.

Don't forget to go to the banker in Novigrad and convert your currency to Crowns. Did that today without knowing I was carrying different currancies. I received 1800+ crowns.

Oh my god, getting into religious reviewing site now? lol

CCG reviews have been featured here for a couple years now. I'm always fascinated to read reviews that come from a particular perspective.

EDIT: In fact, I'm usually more likely to read CCG than a "regular" review just for this reason. I don't even read reviews these days to make my gaming decisions, I rely on word of mouth from all of you, as well as watching Let's Plays.

Word of mouth and lets plays, sure. But why you praise CCG above other review sites is honestly beyond me. What does a perspective from someone who's deluded and cannot think critically do for you that makes it better for you? I despise religion and if I had the energy for it I'd openly boycott CCG. Why? Because I strongly believe religion is for idiots and religion poisons everything, and it should not be a taboo to express that openly.. like the media is forced to do these days regarding smoking.

There. I said it.

Not only did you not read my post properly (I wasn't the one complaining about graphics) but you don't know what you're talking about either.

You did amuse me, so points for that. The fuck off finish was weak though. Try harder.


Apologies. I took the general hatred of the thread and somehow applied it to you.

And, I kind of do know what I'm talking about. I guess my film vfx background conflicts with the video game cute idea of AO.

No, you don't know what you're talking about. You said that what we perceive as AO is just baked into the textures. That is simply incorrect these days when we talk about the AO feature. You either made a horrible rage-typo in that earlier message or you do simply not know what you're talking about despite your background.

Didn't some mod add ambient occlusion for Skyrim? I remember trying and then turning it off because it slowed things down enough to be annoying. My video card is kind of old though.

What I want out of Fallout 4 is:

Stuttering fix
64bit exe that can use maximum RAM available
Mod support, of course
FO:NV style "hard core" option

That about covers it. If there are a lot of graphic options I can't turn on or if my card just isn't good enough anymore I will totally upgrade it for Fallout 4. I'm going to wait and see how performance is first though.


I'm sorry, but ambient occlusion is fucking expensive. What you *perceive* as AO, is actually just baked into the textures. AO is pretty much the last thing you do with a finished environment, so (pre-alpha) fuck off with that noise.

That's incorrect. The actual AO technology does not need it to be baked into the textures. Old games "baked" it in, yes, by designers painting it in manually. I remember doing this in the Morrowind editor.

The AO tech, however, does that for the designer, which is why it's performance heavy and why it can be implemented by complex mods.

I agree that graphics aren't everything... but this DOESN'T EVEN HAVE AMBIENT OCCLUSION! A graphic feature we've been enjoying for 6 years!

The graphics shown in this trailer are simply crazy last-gen. Like you said, graphics aren't everything.. but to say that bullshit as a counter-argument for the complaint that the graphics are nevertheless dated as shite as some here do, is just sad.

They must have done something REALLY interesting and different for this game not to feel like nothing more than an expansion. But, knowing Bethesda, I highly doubt it -- all their games are somewhat the same, but at least they gradually improved graphically.

Depends on what it is. For example, the Temerian armor is available at a vendor in White Orchard, the prologue area. It's pretty expensive when you're just starting, but it's worth it.

As for the horse armor, I discovered it's a whole set of mid-range gear you can buy. Each the blinders, saddle, and saddle-bag contribute to the overall "armored" look. No actual special attributes.

Hmm, had no clue about the armor at the vendor at white orchard and now I'm lvl 14 so I guess I got better stuff now.

Btw, I wish there was a way to make lvling just a bit harder. I'm a completionist but within hours I rocketed over the required level for quests I still had to do, while at the same time there were still dozens of questionmarks all over the map. Instead I decided to go to Novigrad for the main quest because I didn't wanna tower over that one.

On the note of questionmarks... Is there a way to remove them? Because of them "exploring" feels more like ticking off boxes than actually exploring...

The graphics look fine

stop yer fucking whinging....

Pretty much. It wouldn't matter if it was being released for free tomorrow, someone here would still bitch about it.



I'm with you all on this one. I'm getting pretty tired of all the whining and bitching about the graphics. First it was, when it is it coming out. people were going batshit crazy waiting for it. now that its been confirmed all they can do is bitch about the graphics.

Same old Blues Crew at their best. Its like a no win scenario with these guys I swear.

Meh, think the difference with the whiners and the praisers is that the first weren't the people going batshit crazy waiting and the second were. The whiners can look at this from a distance and say "... Meh." while the people that went batshit crazy just knowing FO4 was out there somewhere just decided it's easier to continue the crazy flow instead of facing an underwhelming truth.

In all seriousness I do know I'm being a bit trollish about this during the entire thread already.. and I AM looking forward to FO4 too and I KNOW graphics aren't everything. But come on :\ be honest with yourself. This stuff wouldn't even hsve visually impressed you years ago. And it's not just a studio. It's Bethesda. The company that could make Africa a better place thanks to Skyrim alone.

I got bored in fo3 about 20 hours in. It just became too much of a slog. The first time going through the sewers facing all kinds of crazy monsters that could end me was thrilling/terrifying. Doing that about 10 more times just started being annoying.

There was one spot in the trailer where they go through a cityscape; I thought, that looks like Rage (Another game I lost interest...though that one only took 3 hours)!

Yeah, that part made me think I was watching Borderlands 2 without the cartoonish shading.

What kind of mediocre comment is that? Not surprised seeing who wrote it, but fuck me.

People were hyping the fuck out of FO4 for months already based on mere rumors about it. Now they finally show this stuff and while it's not crap per se I cannot honestly believe that anyone here was actually impressed by the trailer. Sure, it's fallout, and evidently that alone is already enough for people to jerk off on but don't expect me to believe that anyone here -- anyone! -- is truly looking back at this trailer thinking even remotely the excitement they expressed here by just giving way to their biased fanboy.

I'm sure we can explore 8000 caves and other interior again, spread over miles of land, and I bet it's all the same shit again with a bad and too short main quest, as always, and that's alright. All I'd like is to do that brainless shite over again in a new, jaw-dropping jacket.

Sure, graphics aren't everything. But.. that dog doesn't seem to have fur :\ I mean, yeah, I'm spoiled enough to look at the dog like that by now.

And if it ain't graphics to look forward to, it's just a Fallout 3 expansion to me. "And there's nothing wrong with that! XD" Yes there is. Shit's bled dry.

Hahaha fuck offfff with that crazy fanboy excitement! I'm sorry, I really don't want to sound like a troll, but we all knew FO4 was happening already and all we really wanted to see was something impressive. And truly, do not lie to yourself: this was not impressive.

If someone showed me this and told me it was some awesome mod community putting great time and love in a FO4 mod for Skyrim, I think I might have believed it.

The load time between EVERYTHING is what kills it for me. If they could work on cutting that down it would improve things greatly.

Load times? Never heard of SSD apparently...

I have one of the newest and fastest SSDs, and loading times are hardly influenced by it because their seems to be some endless handshaking going on or something. More often than not I just stare at the city from above for 2+ minutes, sometimes followed by a desync.

Ruined it for me too. I'm spoiled by all the quick loading times of games lately no matter how beautiful or big the maps are that if I cant jump into a game within less than a minute I get aggitated, let alone when a game loads 1+ minute multiple times between every fucking match.

Is it just me or does vsync always create unreliable/inconsistent performance? The newest example is in The Witcher 3. Sometimes the fps can very noticeably drop, and when I disable vsync then.. I don't notice it at all. And that's basically my experience with vsync since forever.

Yet a friend of mine cannot play games without vsync on because the slightest tear makes him mad, yet I never hear him mention above complaints ever :\

You can twist it and turn it as you like. Respec option in any game (except MMOs where sometimes the devs change entire classes and it's only fair you are given a chance to respec if your gameplay changes through no fault of your own) is retard casual gamer crap for n00bs who can't play to rectify their dumbass decisions.

It also makes zero sense from a roleplaying perspective. It takes time to develop your character. Everything is a (slow) learning process for your character. To be able to instantly unlearn everything and relearn some completely different shit is immersion breaking and simply outright stupid. It takes you out of the game, it destroys any sense of consistency and persistence and it completely waters down your (level-up) choices since the consequences are zilch if you can simply respec at any time. Fuck this casual MMO crap.

Do you have some sort of brain damage?

Trust me, I think he does. It's only because I never put people on ignore because everyone here has their moments of dumb shit.. otherwise he would have been the first. Every of his fucking comments is the same measure of stupidity as his quote above.

Respeccing isn't about "hey, lets try something else!" but it's there because people can misinterpret a skill description, simply misclick or realize their chosen skillpath really didn't end up to be their thing. In the end, it's about having fun. Fun > realism.
