    we all know Fallout BOS is gonna suck bigtime in terms of gameplay and style, but what i don't understand is how they managed to make the graphics so ugly! come on, this is the 21st century, we're past linear filtering and 256 colors! take a good look at these screenshots:

    Because it is a cheap production.

    Serious Sam is a cheap production and it still looks great. i think the main reason is that they have people working on the game who don't know shit about graphics and game design. i mean, look at their project leader! :twisted:

    It's not Chuck's fault that he's a direct to bargain bin developer, with such hits like...uh...uh...well, he's the man that brought you Run Like Hell!

    Yeah...

    It's funny that Chuck is taking the coward's way out, while Reflexive took the bites and criticism, then said "Okay, okay, perhaps we were a little off on some things. So what should be done to increase the gameplay potential of this game?"

    Chuck is just like a naive little kid who plays the "ban/delete and play Iraqi Minister of Information" and then gets upset when people see right through his game. Reflexive has shown that they can learn, given Star Trek: Away Team and how that did mediocre and is pretty infamous. They know it was pretty stinker-quality, and went to make some improvements based upon their target audience.

    Chuck is just hoping that he gets enough impulse sales for his game, it appears. It doesn't appeal to Fallout fans, and there's a few naive people who like the idea but haven't been shown exactly how bad the game is shaping to be nothing like Fallout or anything in its setting.

    by the way, the screenshots i posted aren't from Fallout: POS. they're from a 1997 action game called Take No Prisoners. the fact that the game was rather mediocre at its time and that Fallout POS graphics are almost the same, if only a little bit better, just shows us how badly Chuck's masterpiece is going to suck.

    Hardcore Fallout fans dont like it because its a lame action game. All the other braindead console gamers wont like it because the graphics suck. They should just start throwing money into a fire, because they are wasting money making this game.

    First of all i think you guys are idiots the game is stil in the ALPHA phase. Do any of you brain-dead irradiated sacks of wasted flesh realize what that means? It means that they are quite a ways away from finishing it so those are graphic they realease so the press/public can see the direction they're going. You guys are doging on this game before there has been a single playable demo or any really good video of gameplay. So i think you guys should stop fondling your dog long enough to realize that you need to wait longer to rip a game i could care less what you say after a game comes out but dont rip it b4 it even is at the beta stages. You guys are sounding a lot like people talking about the Zelda:windwaker game but it was amazing how quickly they all changed their tune when they acually played the game. So all im asking is at least give the game a chance

    No, "Evilspawn", we sound like intelligent Fallouters who know what is good material and what is utter shit.

    Angelina Jolie - good material.
    Fallout : BOS - PIECE OF UTTER SHIT.

    I like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, because I didn't go into it with the expectations that it would be a logical continuation of the story, or that it would hold with the theme - I came into it looking for an action/adventure game with limited character advancement opportunities. That's exactly what I got, so thank you.

    In a Fallout game, after following the series thus far, I'm just not content to look for the same mindless killfest tripe with limited character advancement. It just won't work for me. I don't think I'm the only one, either.

    PS: How do I get an Orderite tag? :D (Not that I mind being a Freak of Nature, and all.)

    PPS: I've made the majority of my 21 posts in The Order, is why I ask. If this is a newbie question, well, hell, I'm a newbie. Enlighten me.

    I think the Orderite tag is for posters who contributed a lot to NMA before they redid the site back in April. Could be wrong though.

    After 25 posts you get "It Wandered In From The Wastes"

    The Order is a clan, so you'd have to ask to join them.

    For some reason, EvilSpawn sounded like Europa and the guys. But of course, that's just how I read it.

    Haven't we been here before.......?
