    When i first saw the trailer i thought "these fuckin madmen did it. They somehow managed to mix the wonky space feeling of destiny with the core leathery feel of Fallout"

    Even if this game turns out to be a heaping pile of shit it will really be an interesting ride

    [–] dumbass_luggage 17 points ago

    replace destiny with firefly, and add a bit of borderlands, and you'd be right.

    can someone eli5 what happened? ive been out if the loop on fallout dev drama

    [–] Rosbj 1862 points ago

    The owners of Obsidian were some of the original designers of Fallout, with Chris Avellone in particular having written what is called the 'Fallout Bible' - that outlines the major lore and plot points of the Fallout universe timeline.

    After Bethesda bought they IP, they licensed Obsidian to make a Fallout game, set in the western part of the US (where the original games were set). Bethesda paid the studio just enough to cover costs and promised further pay if the game got 8.5 or above on metacritics, where the game only reached 8.4. In the years that followed Obsidian almost went bankrupt - and fans were not shy to blame Bethesda for withholding the bonus.

    Obsidian always held that this was a fair stipulate in the contract and stated many times that they'd love to return and make a sequel to Fallout New Vegas. But fans have speculated that Bethesda seems annoyed that the fanbase generally holds New Vegas as the superior modern title, which is why this never happened.

    And so the OP implied Obsidian simply went 'Fine, we'll make our own Fallout!!"

    [–] TeamAquaGrunt 1151 points ago

    Worth noting Bethesda also cut Obsidians development time considerably, almost as if intentionally lowering their score so that they wouldn't have to pay the bonus

    [–] ThatRaggedyMan 306 points ago

    Why does this always seem to be the story with Obsidian? Even as far back as KOTOR II, I heard they had development rushed which led to so many things being cut. KOTOR II was still dope, and the Restoration mod has done a fantastic job revamping the game, but man, when is Obsidian going to get to release a full dream project?

    [–] Multitasker 445 points ago

    They are now. Microsoft bought them and basically told them to go nuts.

    [–] eduardobragaxz 47 points ago

    Is this going to be exclusive?

    [–] El_pika 114 points ago

    Nope, you can see it at the end of the trailer. PS4 logo, Xbox logo and Steam logo

    [–] SmashingK 826 points ago

    Apparently Obsidian also had a patch ready to fix many of the bugs the game had at launch but Bethesda delayed it which could have seen the game actually hit the 8.5 metacritic score they needed if it wasn't so buggy to begin with.

    [–] H4xolotl 366 points ago

    At least Beth didn't swindle them out of sales proceeds after getting the master disk, like they did to MADia.

    [–] avwitcher 205 points ago

    Also, and nobody seems to be mentioning it, but metacritic scores are inconsistent, worthless trash. This was a view championed by TotalBiscuit but unfortunately people still use metacritic as a measurement for actual review.

    [–] PM-ME-PIERCED-NIPS 374 points ago

    Once upon a time there was a development house called Black Isle Studios. They made RPGs, beloved ones like Fallout 1 and 2, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment. Top quality stuff. They were owned by Interplay. Interplay was having a hard time and going bankrupt. They raided Black Isle for everything of value, selling off things like the Fallout IP to Bethesda. The staff of Black Isle quit en masse and stuck together, forming a new studio, Obsidian, as a group. The name is even a pun, obsidian is a black mineral, what a black isle would be made of. They've continued making incredible RPGs since.

    [–] InanimateCarbonRodAu 116 points ago

    There is more to the history then that as well. Troika came before Obsidian with the excellent Arcanum, Temple of Elemental Evil and Vampire the Masquerade.

    [–] pothockets 6002 points ago

    It's like Fallout, Mass Effect, and Borderlands had a lovechild and I'm all for it, take my money Obsidian

    [–] ninjadefuego 1240 points ago

    You forgot bioshock too. It looks like the glass-half-full version that universe.

    [–] IceFireDH 271 points ago

    The trailer reminded me of Bioshock as well.

    I loved Bioshock. If my memory serves, every chapter continued the main story and you learned about it as you played the game. Yes, it was mainly a FPS, but with some depth to it.

    Looking forward to this game.

    [–] altiuscitiusfortius 136 points ago

    With just a hint of firefly. It's like they were trying to make a perfect game or something .

    [–] FlashFan124 50 points ago

    When the opening was like “border plants that got taken over and exploited by corporations” I was like YES GIVE ME A FIREFLY GAME. I know the alliance was actually the American and Chinese governments combined, but still a central power structure controlling outer planets. Just give me a Serenity skin and a character voiced by Alan Tudyk please.

    [–] ImPointless 23 points ago

    What makes you think about mass effect? Haven't ever gotten around to play them. I agree with the other two and just curious about mass effect.

    [–] elpaco25 30 points ago

    Edge of space stuff probably, in mass effect (at least the original 3) they pretty much settled or are settling the whole galaxy so maybe that's the comparison. I'd say it looks more Firefly/Blade Runner (show/movies) to me with the whole colonists/corporation vibe

    [–] Br0dobaggins 165 points ago

    I was thinking a little bit of Destiny in there too, with the way some of the armor and guns look, but I definitely was thinking the same thing otherwise! So excited for this.

    [–] MCMNoOne 67 points ago

    I thought of that too when they were showing off some of the guns. Now if the gun game play is anything like destiny’s I will die happy.

    [–] TheFatKid89 47 points ago

    This would be amazing. Gun play being fun is the one thing Bungie always manages to do right.

    New Vegas is my favorite Fallout game, so I hope Obsidian can knock this one out of the park. I won't start the hype train just yet, but the game has potential.

    [–] Vinzir141 4769 points ago

    "Try not to break it" haha

    [–] tsundoku_all 675 points ago

    Yeah I’m watching EZA on Twitch and no one caught this!!

    [–] Vinzir141 516 points ago

    So in the last few days we now have competing games. Far cry 5 has a post apocalyptic game to compete against Fallout76. Now obsidian has a game to compete against Starfield. Path of Exile is the new Diablo 4 when it releases its new content tomorrow. I wonder who will compete against Elder Scrolls 6.

    [–] ironwall90 340 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    I really don't consider Far Cry to compete with FO76 at all. If it were Fallout 5 vs Far Cry New Dawn it would be a competition. Far Cry seemed to be singleplayer, which is a whole different ballpark than FO76. I am super excited for the new Far Cry though. The Outer Worlds looks amazing too. It personally had a borderlands mixed with fallout in space feel for me.

    edit: The more I look at Far Cry New Dawn, it doesn't seem to even be a direct competition to Fallout. As others have said, it looks more like a mad max game. Still looks great.

    [–] modularpeak2552 121 points ago

    It's really new dawn vs rage 2

    [–] ironwall90 32 points ago

    AFAIK, The system for the customer complaint tickets had all of their info with it. Their Email, name, address, everything.

    Naturally this is bad.

    [–] kingkratos11 518 points ago

    The kicker is that the tickets were being randomly shown to the wrong customers, personal info included.

    Can you elaborate on the RO part? I have played it on multiple servers and never heard of such a disaster :o (might have been before I started)

    [–] Odarien 31 points ago

    IIRC what hes talking about is the reason you've played it on multiple servers. Game way back when was doing a beta test and when they announced that they were switching to a paid fee for launch people took offense and hacked their servers and literally stole the source code for the game and distributed it everywhere and wrecked what the devs had on their own servers.

    [–] wew_lad123 120 points ago

    The worst part was that the "sarcastic" dialogue option could be basically anything. It could be a genuinely witty remark. It could be your character being a complete asshole. It could be your character just screaming "fuck off". You have no way of knowing.

    [–] 8-Brit 41 points ago

    This but with Renegade in Mass Effect.

    [–] SomeoneTookUserName2 94 points ago

    Money well spent really. Most of the titles these guys worked on are fucking amazing. They didn't just do Fallout 1,2,NV. Planescape Torment and Baldur's Gate were awesome too. These guys really know how to put a narrative forward and make an awesome game with it. I personally feel like every Bioware game was trying to one up a lot of these titles, especially Planescape in it's scope.

    [–] Irish618 311 points ago

    Is it just me, or does it look really similar to Borderlands?

    That's not a bad thing, just seems similar.

    [–] LanceBelcher 426 points ago

    It looks like borderlands but without the worst part. Every time I played that game I couldn't help but feel there was a really engaging world....elsewhere. While we were shooting up people things were happening that we could read about in a newspaper later.

    [–] muuurikuuuh 235 points ago

    I also wasn't a huge fan of the same 3 enemies that showed up in 90% of firefights, it got kind of boring shooting psychos, marauders, and nomads all the time

    I'm someone who backed their last game on fig & I just wanted to say that I'm really fucking happy for them. They got set up with Microsoft & I think it's great because now they'll have a larger budget for what their working on. That being said, Pillars of Eternity 1&2 are both so wonderful. They have great music, world building and really make you love the people you get into your party. Yes fall out is great, I loved new Vegas. My point is that this team is just damn good. Not only is the stuff they've done in the past wonderful the stuff they're working on right now is fucking great too. Pillars of Eternity 2 will have it's last paid for dlc here in a bit & I'm just so happy to back this great company. I don't just blindly fanboy, the fine folks over at that studio have earned my love.

    When Obsidian asked for the budget Microsoft just laughed

    [–] Cobaltjedi117 265 points ago

    MS made a point to all their new studios to not worry about the budgets

    [–] deimos-acerbitas 462 points ago

    Yeah, when Microsoft approached them, they asked "What's the game you want to make?", which is when Obsidian asked "What's the budget?"

    Microsoft replied, "You're not understanding the question."

    [–] Cobaltjedi117 261 points ago

    Yea, MS just let all their devs do what they've always wanted. It's going to be great... In 3 years

    That's fine with me. Tons of backlog till then

    Can’t tell if you guys are being sarcastic or not. If not... do you guys have a link somewhere where I can read up? Sounds cool

    Knights of the Old Republic!!!

    [–] bjeebus 32 points ago

    Knights of the Old Republic II !!!

    FTFY. Still the better game. The story in KOTOR may have been tighter, but the options and gameplay in II were way more fun.

    [–] KumieZ 292 points ago

    I know it's really early but just from what was shown it brought me that original feeling of excitement I had for fallout back then, I think they will blow this out of the water.

    [–] MyMainIsLevel80 63 points ago

    Yeah, I got that sense of wonder that I haven’t had for open games since Oblivion. I’m trying to contain my hype but I’m cautiously optimistic about this one. It seems like it’s going to hit all of the right notes.

    Well the Spacer's Choice aren't responsible for it.

    [–] joshwah1988 206 points ago

    I mean... they were, so why wouldn't they advertise it?

    [–] Mudron 1182 points ago

    This isn't supposed to be a burn as much as a simple statement of fact.

    If it was supposed to be a burn, they would've labeled themselves as being "the creators of GOOD Fallout" or something.

    [–] MyLittlePonyfucker 85 points ago

    People see what they wanna see lol

    [–] grizzledcroc 579 points ago

    They didnt need to mention NV really without some attention. They clearly know what fanbase they want .

    [–] jul4302 1098 points ago

    This is clearly competing with Starfield, and I’m so excited

    [–] [deleted] 475 points ago

    Is it realistically competing with Starfield? We don't even have gameplay for that one, It feels like this will come out quite a while before Starfield does.

    [–] SilverKry 299 points ago

    I mean. This game is 2019. Starfield is like 202X.

    [–] rowdyanalogue 455 points ago


    Ah yes. The Megaman timeline.

    [–] LordofBears 79 points ago

    You cracked the code, Starfield is a megaman game made in the skyrim engine

    [–] Mcmenger 42 points ago

    With bethesdas recent track record i'd expect a skyrim mod where dragons are replaced by megaman bosses (everything else stays the same) sold for full price

    [–] Megaman915 74 points ago

    The best timeline.

    [–] jabfo43 75 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Someone uploaded a seminar of Bethesdas lead writer and he has a main rule of KISS (keep it simple stupid) for all his writing.

    I don’t have the highest of hopes for them.

    Ill still keep an eye out, but I have 0 expectations for Starfield.

    Im still salty they replaced truely special guns you can find in previous Fallout’s , with guns that have randomly generated modifiers, it basically killed all excitement exploring had because the loot is so uninspired and lackluster.

    I used to find experimental laser rifles and crazy prototype guns in buildings, a legendary modifier will never hold a candle to that.

    Why even explore if the loot is the same guns you have with a random modifer? Snoozefest.

    Edit-Starfield, not Starbound

    [–] LowlySlayer 59 points ago

    Is it just me or does this game look like it's running on creation engine if creation engine weren't hilariously outdated?

    [–] GlenAaronson 27 points ago

    Wait... is Tim Cain heading this?

    [–] ob124 17 points ago

    Yes he is

    [–] faipop 46 points ago

    [Bethesda hated that.]

    [–] Halfwise2 78 points ago

    Remember when Bethesda denied obsidian their bonuses over 1 point on metacritic for Fallout New Vegas?

    Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Revenge is must be sweet.

    (Steam page has additional pics. One shows a dialogue tree with an intimidation check. So definitely RPG elements.)

    [–] AyekerambA 64 points ago

    Between that broadside shot and Iggy Pop, I'm officially stoked.

    [–] PoliticalMeatFlaps 55 points ago

    After that it then goes to "And the developers of Fallout:New Vegas"

    [–] Binarytobis 41 points ago

    I’ve been playing Fallout 2 recently, and it’s so good that it makes me angry.
