    Fallout Shelter is just a silly mobile game that doesn't take itself too serious and don't pretend to be part of the main series.

    If it was up to me, Shanda can overhaul it all they want, as long as they make it more fun. Fallout Shelter at the moment is quite boring, even after the exploration quests were implemented, the game is still boring after a little while.

    too boring and .. while the tutorial said that there's 'winning criteria'. googling it doesn't even shown how... (beyond that the first criteron is that player has a minimum of 80 dwellers. I don't know about the rest of it but did it involves the need of completing the VDSG book?)

    I have no idea.

    I only played Shelter twice. Once when it was released on PC and a second time when the exploration quests were implemented. Both times I didn't last more than a couple hours. I got bored as hell and uninstalled it right away.

    I don't disagree with any of this. I was just being comically melodramatic for its own sake. Wasn't trying to be offensive (perhaps I did it without trying), and I wouldn't turn around and use that word as a threat. Though I'm unfortunately not surprised that people have done so in the past. And I'm sorry if I offended anyone here personally.

    I have already firmly compartmentalized the original games from Bethesda's forays. I'm not really interested in directing any of my opinions at Bethesda, as I know that what I think is as valueless to them as their interpretation of the franchise is valueless to me. I guess what inspired me to melodrama is the feeling that their decisions for the IP are now driven not by a difference of interpretation, but ONLY by marketing and market trends. That's the sort of thing that I find reprehensible regardless of the IP.

    Yeah, I knew Fallout had a following in Russia, and it could be that I'm just unaware of its popularity in China. In that case, I was basing my assumption on the fact that this new version of it bears no resemblance in tone to the main series, and they didn't even bother to call it the same thing (but that may just be a translation issue). As far as I can tell, the only element that is making the transition intact is the Fallout Boy / pseudo-50s cartoon art style; but they appear to have removed the irony and instead committed wholly to its fantasy. The tonal contrast is gone, and only the kitsch remains. Which is a grotesque irony of its own.

    Admittedly, I haven't played it, so I may be misjudging them. But I don't think so, based on their track record.

    Looks better than the Fallout Shelter we have right now in the West like they took all the build-up ideas and just released it all at once. I play the game on my mobile from time to time while out and about and needing to pass time if online is implemented it might take my ability to play it away. I never played this game seriously but more or less for time wasting. It doesn't look too lore friendly which is worrying, for now, it's a Chinese product and not a worldwide release.

    This looks like the typical Chinese ripoff game.
