The article using the word "Reboot" has me greatly concerned..

It is very clear that the update did not fix these issues either, as the animations still look to be terrible from the gameplay that has been shown, and the faces of NPCs still look very dead.
Bethesda fans are well aware of the limitations of the Creation Engine.   But frankly, I don't care about the quirks of the engine, as long as they deliver an entertaining game. Game play > graphics > engine !   I will most definitely not refuse to buy the game simply because Bethesda didn't write a whole new engine for it. Get real...
It's an outdated engine. I am real. I refuse to support an AAA+ development team that is clearly being lazy. There is absolutely zero reason for it. I'm sorry, but I remember from Skyrim how painful it was to witness NPC bugs and their jarring movements, not to mention dealing with the terrible companion AI.    This is 2015. I'm not paying to play a game that is using an engine that is so horribly outdated, but you enjoy your old-gen game! Frankly it is disappointing to me that any player would support Bethesda Softworks, when it is so clear they are not putting their all into their games at this point, but just riding the coattails of past successes and expecting modders to fix their sloppy coding. Like I said, there is zero excuse for such shortcuts from an AAA+ development studio.  
  .... I cant even find words. Its not the same engine as from oblivion. It has been updated, it has been refactored, it can continue to do so indefinitely. What difference does a "new" engine have? Just because its newer doesn't necessarily makes it better. The engine they have been using for years has all the use cases they require for their games covered so what benefit would there be to put hundreds of man-years re-inventing the wheel only to solve the same usecases? Yes there are bugs, glitches and anomalies but these are complex systems in the context of the open world games they are trying to develop. Lets also not forget even these "new" engines (which i wish you would specify) have many many man-years worth of R&D and production time behind them and more often that not based on predecessor code.      
It is the same engine. Updated or not, it is still the same engine. They updated the same engine they used from Oblivion for Skyrim, guess what? Skyrim still had many of the same issues that Oblivion did because it was the same engine! Also, poor animations and buggy NPC AI cannot be excused in a game being released in 2015. It just can't. It's not like this is a game being released from an indie development studio.

 

You also don't seem to understand the difference between an engine update and a brand new engine. A brand new engine strives to solve all the issues the old engine had, and is able to do that since it is being built from scratch. An updated engine can only do that to an extent since. There is a difference.  


My friend, you have no idea.

You just don't start from scratch after investing millions of dollars and time in an engine you re-design, refactor and update.

Of course its a different engine. what you say is contradictory.

for example;
Doom 3 source code:
https://github.com/id-Software/DOOM-3.gpl

Doom 3 BFG source code:
https://github.com/id-Software/DOOM-3-BFG

If you go through those you will see there is major changes including a new realization for rendering,and if i remember correctly they even have mega textures as a feature.

Doom bfg is not doom.
Fallout creation engine is not gamebyro version X.

As for you complaints about AI and such: That's something they should look at.
If fixing bugs were as trivial as you think they would be plugged and patched then and there.

got news for you, bugs like to hide. and they hide well.

why oh why cant it be this simple.

"Deliver a product with x,yz features, Customer pays for product containing said features."

whats really happening is:

"Say you are developing x,y,z but try to make as much mass market appeal by raising product expectations whilst cuting as many corners you can to maximize profit. leaving fans disgruntled because you had to scale back features because you made to much hype"

If you can provide solid market research data showing that there is enough interest from players to justify the investment, it would be made.

The thing is - western theme anything is not very popular at this time - no western movies are being made, there are no popular western themed anything right now. Its an unpopular theme at this time.


Red Dead Redemption sold 12 million copies...
There is a large enough interest in the wild west genre to make a profit.

A first i though i would just plop down the pre-order money and be done with it.
But then having actually took a second to think about it, What would i actually gain from giving them the money now?

Or you play the baby grown up
That is what I thought.
 don't think so the trailer shows they died in the end, plus the damn fallout thing happen after more then 200 years after the bombs, and I hope at leat bethesda don't butcher that up....  plus i'm the only one who had the feeling it will be the same old in a new map all over again?
Yep.  If I recall correctly, the first one took place over 100 years after the bombs fell.  The second one takes place 2-3 generations after the vault dweller from the first one created their village.  3 and New Vegas were after that.

This is a actually a pretty interesting read:

Originally posted by lizen12 I'm looking for a game where the dungons are really big, where it takes a while to learn them. I remember playing legend of mir and it taking weeks to learn the layout of certain area's like bug cave. I really want to try and find a game like that again where I can enter a dungon/cave and just get lost of hours grinding and fighting my way through it.
  Aion has some pretty spacious open world 'dungeons' (areas populated with elite mobs) They are designed for groups but some people can solo if they are proficient with their class.
I dont think that is what he's looking for.

 

It isnt - large open area - not a dungeon. This is something that mmorpgs have done - introduced instanced large open outside areas for groups that players started calling "dungeons". No! Dungeons are underground maze like caverns like upper and lower Guk in Everquest 1 where you get completely lost within 5 minutes.


They are not instanced... they are in the open world and are a maze.

The fact that they dont go DOWN is neither here nor there.

Anyhow, Microsoft addressed this information LAST YEAR.

Per Microsoft: 
he Windows Technical Preview will only occur within the Technical Preview period.


Which has been extended indefinitely.

You don't want it right now, believe me.   They have a LOT of ironing and bugfixing to do to meet their release date of the end of July. The current build was not entirely stable to say the least.       (But I still pick that over that dreadful Windows 8/8.1 anytime)
  I've been using Windows 10 for the better part of 3 - 4 weeks now with the latest insider preview edition and had 0 issues   games running better / full compatibility with all my old stuff, faster loading times, windows edge (replacement for internet explorer) runs faster than firefox or chrome and with less memory leak issues...   i'm extremely happy with the upgrade and have had basically no issues except having to do a DDU driver wipe for my video card and reinstalling the drviers, other than that everything has worked straight out of the box and better than 7 / 8 / 8.1
I was gonna post to say it would take a major effort by Win 10 current users/testers to convince me to upgrade from Win 7. You did a good job here though.   Still not convinced cause I hated Win 8 altogether.
I have been testing windows 10 Since last year, its still buggy and a mess. Unless you have a PC you dont mind messing up, dont use it yet. Windows 8.1 is still the fastest and most stable OS they have made yet. 
no idea what version you're running, but my experience on windows 10 is amazing.. maybe get a newer version or something... stop spreading misinformation
I have it running on 3 systems. My mule PC is so bugged its hard to use and black screens all the time and you need to hard reboot to get it running. My Wifes PC it runs like butter. My Gaming PC is just usable. The OS studders from time to time and once every 3 days it crashes if I dont reboot it often. Huge problem right now is you cant select what windows updates you dont want, so it keeps installing the wrong drivers on 2 of my PCs. The feedback windows for win 10 has a whole wack of bugs being listed and some so bad they have killed the OS and only option was a format reinstall. If you are running smooth and clean, you are the rare customer. Windows 10 is buggy as hell for most users. 
i know about a few people   The person that talked me into upgrading and about 4 friends i've talked into upgrading who all also have no issues, but i genuinly mean it when i say this that it sucks that you're experiencing issues. i know 6 people isnt a huge sample size, but on the same note it's pretty good too that being said i had one friend who did experience issues, which could have been resolved if he downloaded his network card drivers (but he's super impatient and like gets overly frustrated and gives up if something doesn't work instantly) and he had no wifi and full blew up and just formatted his PC without even trying to install his wifi drivers. Other than that, everyone i know has had great experiences... no issues with automatic updates installing wrong drivers, no freezing up randomly, no black screens (Could be driver related, is it those driver not responding issues?), no crashes, or stutters just an enjoyable experience. Also the reason i'm genuinly sorry it isnt working for you is that this is by far one of my most liked versions of windows, it's fast, games run better for me now then they did by windows 8.1, it's only marginal like maybe 4 or 5% performance increase but it's better than nothing.
So you ran a benchmark program running Windows 8.1 and then installed Windows 10 and got 5% higher benchmark? Because on all my systems they were down not up. Even on the PC that is running it like butter. 
why do i need a benchmark when i have real fps readouts from actual games?
  Because its hard to get metrics on how much the new windows kernel effects performance when there are many other factors to consider like the state of 3rd party video drivers for said kernel.  
again... a benchmark is not going to tell me anything that playing a game isnt with video card drivers...

i'm using latest beta AMD drivers (which do not even have windows 10 support, there is released WHQL versions of nvidia drivers with windows 10 support), with a 2 x Radeon R9 290's and my games are performing 5%ish higher framerates then they were in windows 8.1 with unsupported drivers.

 

that literally tells me all i need to know and a benchmark isnt going to tell me any different, benchmarks very rarely give you any real world results... benchmarks are designed to push as far as they can, most games don't...

 

real world performance, windows 10 is outperforming windows 8.1 which outperformed windows 7 for me. thats all that really matters.


All I'm saying is that you cant reliably relate that 5% increase directly to the new kernel when there is other software in the mix.

I'm actually in the camp that thinks windows 10 will perform better generally.
It's just to early to start stating 'facts' with supporting software moving at different development paces.

After watching the trailer, I got a question: the scenes of people flocking to Vault 111 at the time of the announcement of the nuclear attack, then at the end the Vault Dweller emerging wearing a Vault 111 suit. Could he be the baby depicted in the cot? If so, then the time passed between the start of the war and the emergence of the Vault Dweller couldn't be more than around 30 years. Could Fallout 4 be set around the same time as Fallout 1 and the events of Vault 13? WIth the flashback scenes in the trailer, is this a hint that the events in Fallout 4 are set in an earlier time than in FO2 and FO3?

The rumor is: You get cryogeniclly frozen. (possibly at M.I.T) - so it was like yesterday that the world was normal.

Also the events of fallout 4 take place 10 years after that of fallout 3, Apparently.

I have been testing windows 10 Since last year, its still buggy and a mess. Unless you have a PC you dont mind messing up, dont use it yet. Windows 8.1 is still the fastest and most stable OS they have made yet. 
no idea what version you're running, but my experience on windows 10 is amazing.. maybe get a newer version or something... stop spreading misinformation
I have it running on 3 systems. My mule PC is so bugged its hard to use and black screens all the time and you need to hard reboot to get it running. My Wifes PC it runs like butter. My Gaming PC is just usable. The OS studders from time to time and once every 3 days it crashes if I dont reboot it often. Huge problem right now is you cant select what windows updates you dont want, so it keeps installing the wrong drivers on 2 of my PCs. The feedback windows for win 10 has a whole wack of bugs being listed and some so bad they have killed the OS and only option was a format reinstall. If you are running smooth and clean, you are the rare customer. Windows 10 is buggy as hell for most users. 
i know about a few people   The person that talked me into upgrading and about 4 friends i've talked into upgrading who all also have no issues, but i genuinly mean it when i say this that it sucks that you're experiencing issues. i know 6 people isnt a huge sample size, but on the same note it's pretty good too that being said i had one friend who did experience issues, which could have been resolved if he downloaded his network card drivers (but he's super impatient and like gets overly frustrated and gives up if something doesn't work instantly) and he had no wifi and full blew up and just formatted his PC without even trying to install his wifi drivers. Other than that, everyone i know has had great experiences... no issues with automatic updates installing wrong drivers, no freezing up randomly, no black screens (Could be driver related, is it those driver not responding issues?), no crashes, or stutters just an enjoyable experience. Also the reason i'm genuinly sorry it isnt working for you is that this is by far one of my most liked versions of windows, it's fast, games run better for me now then they did by windows 8.1, it's only marginal like maybe 4 or 5% performance increase but it's better than nothing.
So you ran a benchmark program running Windows 8.1 and then installed Windows 10 and got 5% higher benchmark? Because on all my systems they were down not up. Even on the PC that is running it like butter. 
why do i need a benchmark when i have real fps readouts from actual games?

Because its hard to get metrics on how much the new windows kernel effects performance when there are many other factors to consider like the state of 3rd party video drivers for said kernel.

On a more entertaining note ,  Fallout 4 is already among the best selling (atm, not over time ofc) games on Steam. Preorder mania. No preorder bonus known yet, no release date known yet, no gameplay seen yet, we barely know anything about it atm. LOL

$104AUD for a game that i don't even know if i will get before 2017..

Kinda hard to justify a pre-order personally.

Looks like the rumors of the protagonist having a voice in fallout 4 might be true..

Which saddens me deeply.

Ideas are a dime a dozen ... whether a game is good or not is in the detailed design.

For example, what is the combat like .. is it well designed and fun? Are there stealth elements? Is the game convenient to play?


Thats not detailed, that still looking at development in an abstract way.

Is it well designed and fun? - really? designing for a game to be well designed and fun lol? chicken and the egg much?


Is the game convenient to play? - That's very much a iterative and QA driven aspect.

No, I'm a great believer in a great deal of Analysis and design happening prior to production but what you describe is not what should be focused on in that phase.

1. Assess core Audience.
2. Assess product viability.
3. Identify Core Concept (Overview/setting)
4. Identify Core Gameplay (Mechanics)
5. Identify Challenges (Will this kill the budget or conflict with Concept or gameplay)
6. Test.
7. Iterate and/or back to 2.
8. Build.


Hopefully its fallout 4.

I fear it may not live up to expectations tho.

The pledge rewards aren't really enticing for people that own or have pledged to the other games.

Personally, I wana see more videos about the game before i pledge.
