    Maryland is full of wiggers and suburbanites, a DLC featuring stick skinny white kids in giant basketball jerseys having mock gang wars where they run away as soon as a single shot is fired is more accurate.

    This DLC is full of Louisiana bayou stereotypes. For all the supposed accuracy in Fallout 3's Capital Wasteland this is just retarded, it's like the difference between the LA Boneyard and New Reno.

    There's about three full barrelled 12 gauges up on the Nexus last time I checked so it's even more worthless.

    I can has Roleplaying Game?

    but making dialogues is more difficult compared to weapons (you know the kind of dialogues that make SENSE).

    Also much spoken words or things to read make lidle jimmy's head dizzy. So he gets new toys, like guns and of course retarded targets to use them on. Bethesda knows their costumers.

    Happy lidle jimmy
    poor retarded targets ...

    Wow, inbred, mutated hillbillies in Bethesdas new Swamp location. Color me surprised. No really! I am! Just about as surprised that, at closer inspection, the ocean turned out to be wet.

    But seriously, who didn't see this coming a mile away when they first announced that it was in a swamp? Way to not take the swamp setting anywhere original. But originality isn't what Bethesda does best, I guess.

    Looks pretty good except for the terrible title font.

    Not very different. Different, but still keeping that postapocalyptic vibe.

    Kind of.

    A little bit.

    Miniature, quark bit.

    PS: Psychonauts defaults to awesome.

    Wow Left 4 Dead 2 is really going the Southern Gothic route huh?



    Oh, wait my mistake. Seriously did someone put off doing their DLC presentation to read Preacher comics and so this is all they had to show?

    I just love how well this trailer shows what kind of RPG maker Beth is.
    Trailer in a nutshell.
    (intro, gunshot, gunshot, gunshot, gunshot, gunshot, explosion, "You don't belong here" Coming in June.)

    That's why I said it was embarrassing, it was chock full of tropes, it's like they practically copied every single trailer that happens to have a swamp and/or rednecks.

    Only thing that could have made it worse was some hick yelling "We don't like yer kind 'round here."

    I actually like the look of this one. Fallout needed some hillbilly mutants. I guess they could have gone with the desert look of The Hills Have Eyes, but I don't mind that there is plant life in a coastal area.

    But I still wouldn't pay 10 USD.

    Virgina, West Virginia and western Maryland (all surrounding DC - or within a couple hours) certainly is mostly mountains, woods and huntin'. Go east of DC, while more populated, you get marshlands and coastal places - more hunting and a lot of fishing. The only really direct super-populated areas are DC/Baltimore area which is one big metroplex, everything around it is varying levels of civilization to backwoods - there's certainly an element of "redneck" there.

    They wouldn't show that in the trailer... they have to leave a few surprises for the player to find.

    In Fallout 3, I missed Fallout's spirit, in the DLCs, I miss the spirit and the universe. I understand the envy to expand fallout's world, but all this shit is wrong. they don't know how to do it so they use Lovecraft or Mad Max backgrounds to do it. pathetic.

    But thats much more Appalachia then Southern Gothic. Hatfields and McCoys vs huge mansions in swamps. Now clans fighting over marijuana, meth labs and the last Mountain Dew plant, that would be Appalachia.

    Oh shit. Bethesda, you dumb fucks, how this in any way is connected to Fallout?

    They're trying to make experiments with some random B-movie plots like killing zombies at the swamps or being kidnapped by the aliens. It is so cheap as it is generic as hell. And what pisses me off most of all, that they still call it Fallout.

    If F3 was a rape, I don't know how this must be called.
