    Ohhh my reddit post was linked in the article. I feel special yadayadayada


    Anyway, I do think it feels fake. A lot of networking geniuses have pretty much disproved it by now. It's very well made hoax though, I'll give them that.

    Hoax or not, who cares about Dovahkiin dressed in power armor, wielding a plasma rifle and shooting at vertibirds? :P

    Well if we are getting a new Bethesda's Fallout there is a chance that maybe in the future we get another Obsidian's Fallout. (if they keep doing this: Bethesda(F3),Obsidian(NV),Bethesda(F4),Obsidian(???))

    Blasphemy!!! But I agree. I enjoyed playing Skyrim, so if they'll make Fo4 more like it, perhaps it would be fun to play. And it we have Wasteland 2 coming out soon, so F04 doesn't matter much.

    Yes, but Van Buren had seperate maps connected by a world map. That's not a route Bethesda is going to take, they're going for a continous world.
    Thus they will shrink down the distances to walking-distance like they did since Morrowind.
    Of course, Daggerfall had a HUGE continous world, but it relied on random generation of dungeons and NPCs.
    It could work, of course, as Fallout isn't very populated, but they'll just shrink it down so you can walk from one side to the other in very short time.

    Its Fus Ro Dah, you will be Fusrohdahing Vertibirds.

    Tood Howard: "we felt that Fallout 3 was awesome, but the idea was, how could we make it more awesome?"

    Emil Pagliarulo:"Yeah!"

    Pete Hines: "Exactly, we thought a lot about it and thought, wait a min. People loved Skyrim didn't they.

    Emil Pagliarulo:"Yeah, they did!"

    Tood Howard: "So, how could we make it more awesome that was the question, and we just did it! We gave the vault dweller shouts, because they are simply cool"

    Emil Pagliarulo:"Yeah, they are!"

    Pete Hines: "Exactly. So there is this new exciting and awesome way to deal with vertibirds now, not only can you shout at them, but there are all sorts of shouts. Shouts where you can force them to land, or where you breath fire, there is even a shout to call a thunderstorm!".

    Emil Pagliarulo:"Yeah, thunderstorm!"

    Tood Howard: "We really believe that it is pushing Fallout as franchise forward in to a new age of gaming particularly for the next gen consoles. A setting like Fallout with mutation and radiation has room for all sorts of cool stuff and abilities. We have ideas that are so crazy you wouldn't believe it! Once we started brain storming, which is pretty much 95% of our work, we got so many ideas, like laser swords, everyone loves laser swords and such new cool perks, perks which alows you to choke people to death!

    Emil Pagliarulo:"Yeah, choke to death!"

    Tood Howard: ",levitate objects and throw them at people. Possibilities are endless here!"

    A minor point that leads me to agree with the hoax theory is the way the date is written. Bethesda is an American company. Why would they write the date in the European format?

    I'm just worried Boston's going to be way too much like D.C. and it'll feel like a rehash of FO3. Yes, I realize New Vegas is set in the southwest like FO1 & 2, but there was a generational platform change involved that kept the setting very fresh (also, it's Vegas, baby). D.C.'s also a very iconic place, while Boston...I mean it's got its charm, history, and unique attraction, but it's not in the same league as D.C. or Vegas.

    Oh, what the hell am I saying? This is going to be a Bethesda piece of shit and the only redeeming quality maybe, MAYBE will be the survival horror elements like in FO3. At this point I'd rather have Joshua Graham Simulator 2014.

    The title "Thesurvivor2299" really makes me think of a PARPG board game.

    That could be neat.
