News Comments > It Came from E3 2018, Part 3

Bethsoft doesn't 'know' Fallout in general. They know pipboys, vaultboy, Nukes are for super cool funtimes, Super Mutants can be anywhere 'What's FEV?'. That's it. Its a generic, offshoot Goofy Post-Apoc Game Series with the core game loop being Explore/Combat/Gather dressed up in Fallout's clothes.

Really the only thing that seemed interesting to me from the NoClip Doc on F76 is that they are adding all the weird folklore creatures like Mothman, etc. But knowing how they build games now, they will be creatures to get a trophy, rather than any sort of weird, super involved quest with branching paths. Deep RPG or Story is just not what they excel at, which sucks since Fallout will never be like that again.

Edit: Also wanted to add, I think F76 will do well for a subset of people. Essentially those that like Survival and PvP/e games, since that's what it is.

With that first video, I really hope they don't railroad you into completing an area by killing everybody to advance. An option to bypass them all with stealth would be nice.

Sounds like they abandoned co-op/multiplayer? Pfft. Oh well, fallout, wolf and dead island 2 it is

There is some leaked info from 8 months ago on multiplayer:

"CD Projekt RED is working to implement a “social hub” in the game that will allow players to interact with one another. The game’s multiplayer has already been described as seamless by the developer, and channel host Madqueen adds that the social hub is going to be “the most important bridge between forever alone single player version and the multiplayer version of the game”

I would wait until the full reveal on the 12th however for better information.

Has anyone actually played the PnP game or is just really familiar with what Pondsmith has created?

Haven't played it no, but have read about it and acquired the source books just to read them ever since this was announced in 2013. For an opinion from someone who has played Cyberpunk PnP though and their reaction to this game trailer, I would recommend this video from Henley.

Well that's not good. It doesn't have to have Bladerunner's glacial pacing but I don't want anything near as spasmodic and shallow as a Tarantino flick. I'm not heavy into the genre and only really read stuff by Gibson and Stephenson so I don't know really know how Pondsmith comes down on all of it. I do think that we all have our own ideas about what Cyberpunk is however. I fully admit I see a more dark, neogothic, neon world where it's shiny on the surface and seemy underneath. And where those two worlds intersect is where your character should be with one foot in each. Shadowrun-ish in other words.

It's good in the sense if you understand that CD Red is interesting in adapting well known creations as perfectly as they can, they are obsessed with that. We all know that this game is based on a PnP by Pondsmith by now, and they are obsessed with bringing that to life in the same way the Witcher games are almost an exact recreation of the Witcher novels in a video game format to the point where the characters in the game are nearly exactly as they are described from the novels.

That's why 2077 is not pure Blade Runner, it is based on the Punk 2020 setting, which was not described as purely bleak and instead borrows from multiple settings. CD Red also said they are borrowing ideas from all of these: William Gibson, Blade Runner, Deus Ex 1 (they mention the first specifically) and System Shock 1&2, and Ghost in The Shell, plus mainly Cyberpunk 2020 PnP. Basically a melting pot of all retro-future fiction up to this point.

Mateus Kanik, "There are lots of cyber games around, but there’s not a lot of punk in those games. We want to put more punk into ours. We do not want to make a dark and hopeless world. We are not doing Blade Runner. It will be full of rock and roll.” Stepien concluded: “It’s more like a Tarantino approach.”

Most anticipated game for me. But damn, I'd LOVE for CD Red to do Fallout since they actually make RPGs or aRPGs.

This E3 was 99% disappointment and 1% ecstasy. This really might be the right time to give up gaming and maybe come back in 3 years.

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer - The only thing that excited me this E3. Not that this a popularity contest, but the views on this video compared to F76 and the Starfield Teaser are twice as much.

Fallout has been 'dead' for a long time. The Elder Scrolls Fallout types are just a generic Wasteland game with Vault Boys.

Haha, jeez. I'm so sorry Tim Caine, but Fallout as it was originally is definitely dead.

"My idea is to explore more of the world and more of the ethics of a post-nuclear world, not to make a better plasma gun."

Exploring the ethics of post-nuclear world of Fallout 76 with Nuclear Silos to set against your fellow players. Much ethics.

Hopefully a 64-bit engine this time. Also hoping for 4 sides for sieging a city. And it looked like the soldiers had ropes or ladders, it would be nice to know if that is physical equipment you must build for a siege as it should be.

I read this last week. For once I'm interested in a BF game again, I learned my lesson with pre-ordering since BF3 though - they are always buggy on release. I really hope they at least have joystick support Day 1.

Every Assassin's Creed has fiction in it. Isn't the entire background about Ancient Aliens? All the "gods" usually turn out to be an Alien species.

In fairness, Fallout 3 & Fallout 4 are pretty bad 'RPGs' and worse at being the Fallout Tim Cain envisioned (I.E. games about exploring ethics, society rebuilding, etc. not "making a better plasma gun") and FO3, FO4, and Vegas unfortunately have existed on a bad game engine for a decade. The franchise has gone the way of "now-gen" simplified and "peggle-ization" that Todd Howard enjoys.

awww I was hoping for a 1976 themed fallout game. That's when military stuff started to get really cool.

Not sure how that even makes sense though considering the Fallout time is completely divergent from our own. The events of '1976' in Fallout, including the technology, are very different from ours, where no matter what that timeline always leads to how it is depicted from the 1950s and onto the post-nuclear disasters from 2077.
