Fallout 4 Rumor

A post on Bubblews states that Bethesda showed off Fallout 4 at E3 last week behind closed doors, saying a brief trailer (oddly specified as 37 seconds in length) was part of the presentation. They say "it seems there was a leaker inside" who allegedly shared unconfirmed details about the unannounced next installment in the action/RPG series. These details include word that the game will come to Windows, as well as Xboxes One and 360 and PlayStations 3 and 4, the game will be announced before next year's E3 but is not expected to launch before October 2015, the main setting is Boston, and more. This is all to be taken with a grain of salt, though it's interesting to note that one of the editors at Strategy Informer commented on that site's report of this with a smug: "I... can neither confirm nor deny that rumor. :p"

What's MMUE, jim?

Mission Mojave - Ultimate Edition It's a bug fix mod. There's another bug fix mod out there, but it's essentially a compilation of other individual bug fix patches merged into one. MMUE goes farther and fixes the bugs themselves rather than just compiling a bunch of smaller fixes into one.

Thank you, sir.

Yeah I had the same approach, most of my mods are very minor UI mods or graphical tweaks/enhancements. Of course it still somehow ballooned into 50+ mods and by the time I was finished I didn't really want to play but that's a different story

EDIT - On that note, are there any must-have mods for New Vegas? The Brazil one looks amazing but I have tried it yet.

I don't like using overhaul type mods until I've played the game at least once. I generally play the first time completely vanilla, then a 2nd time modded a bit before I go all out with the crazy overhauls. I've played it once vanilla and once with DLC and a few light mods. IMO, the DLC make the game too easy with the level cap increase and perks you get from completing the DLC quests.

I suggest using MMUE to squish bugs, and then add some immersion mods and texture replacements. I would also install some UI mods like oHUD with DARNUI. After playing with those it makes me want to puke seeing screen shots and videos of the stock UI.

For me it was little mods that made the game more enjoyable, especially if you're playing it in hardcore mode. There was one that would let you use a pilot light and flamer fuel to use ovens as a camp fire for cooking/crafting. I think it was called simply called Oven Cooking.

Another one I used was called Manual Reload. It requires NVSE, and does what the name implies. No longer will you automatically reload when the last shot is fired, you either manually hit the reload key or switch weapons. Sometimes it's faster to switch to a second weapon than reload which is one reason I like it. The other is that it makes the game remember how much ammo is in each weapon, so if you're down to just a few shots left (or empty) and switch to another weapon, when you re-equip the first weapon it isn't magically reloaded anymore.

I plan to play again with JSawyer's mod. I'm going to keep it simple though, just use the MMUE bug fix along with UI and texture mods. I want to keep to the original game as much as possible, but make it more challenging.

I'm playing (and loving) Fallout NV right now - my first attempted playthrough got cut off with a hardware failure that required a rebuild pretty early in, so believe it or not I am just now experiencing it for the first time. As a fan of the first 2 seminal games in the series, I still see enough "Fallout" in NV to be worthy of the name despite the perspective change. It's a great game - the fun exploration easily makes up for its other shortcomings.

Ironically I just loaded my 144th mod for New Vegas, and have it pretty much dialed-in, fined tuned, and running great. No CTDs, no stuttering, or issues so far; hopefully they don't rear their ugly head over time as my save file grows.

Have you gone to NexusMods and loaded up an mods, or are you just running Vanilla?

Enjoy!


I am running vanilla. I have sifted through FO Nexus but haven't installed any yet. Thanks for the advice all.

The general consensus on this board 2 weeks ago was that both consoles will sell poorly.
The general consensus today is that at least one console will sell poorly.

Publishers aren't as convinced as posters here, but I'm sure they have concerns. Makes sense to at least target the older consoles for a while. 10/15 seems extreme, but if the PS4 and 360 have only sold a few million each by then it makes sense. If they have two solid holidays then it's easy to just drop those products.

FOOK2 (Fallout overhaul kit) is definitely the best mod if you aren't looking to change anything. It's bug fixes and some cosmetic changes with some added content that fits in with the game perfectly.

I'd get all the unofficial NV patch mods for sure.

I also like Nevada Skies.

I also run J.E. Sawyer's mod. I am surprised nobody mentioned it yet. I kind of consider it part of the game.
http://twofoldsilence.diogenes-lamp.info/2012/09/jsawyeresp-v5.html

I have my NV running with a "full screen window" utility that gets rid of micro-stutter and the 4gb extender (to enable more RAM for RAM guzzling texture mods) plus NV FOSE (the script extender).

It took some tweaking to get everything right but now it's great and I'm playing through for the second time. I LOVE the "Old World Blues" DLC.

New Vegas Bounties is pretty fun too.

Note: The mods that turn the city of New Vegas into one huge area almost always eventually caused problems for me and I think I tried them all. Not worth it.

Monster mod is gone from the Nexus but you can probably still find it on sites that are less picky.

If you want to fight a lot look into A World of Pain.

Project Nevada is considered to be the top overhaul mod for NV, and I'd definitely check Martigen's.... I forgot what he called it for Vegas... Monster Mod still?

Darn's UI is a must too.

lmao you guys are all to rawr. Fallout and fallout 2 were great games.
Fallout went way down hill with fallout 3, so for me fallout 4 looks to be another console crud.
Wasteland 2 looks to be a great pc game and just wanted people to know about it. For people that didn't know wasteland is where fallout got it start. Wasteland is also the best PC rpg of all times.

I didn't know we are only allowed to care about one game at a time! Well fuck me, I've been doing it wrong all this time.

Who cares about Wasteland 2 when the sun is going to turn into a red giant and bake our planet crispy?

If it's not isometric and turn based, it's not Fallout to me. Bring on Wasteland 2 instead.

Fingers crossed that Bethesda will actually finish and polish the game this time. Yeah, and, forget the last gen consoles, or at least down-port to them please.
