      A fairly innocent but also somewhat pointless question. Not going to spend time watching a comedy like Louie if I am a fan of serious sci-fi or fantasy. You can interpret the tone of a show/movie well enough from ads, clips, trailers, and the audience that is attracted to a show or any other given media product. You then make your decision to say "I have no interest in buying or subscribing to this particular product" and move on with your day like any damn adult would. There is too much content out there and not enough time in the day, if there is a more than 66% chance it isn't for you why spend the time on it.

      You can see Todd panicking in interviews now. With the show raising Fallout's recognition levels into the public consciousness the demand for a new game is rising equally as quickly. And he knows damn well the team he currently has at Bethesda isn't capable of creating anything new on their own, or working with any other engine than their gamebyro junk.. Esp. doing it within 2-3 years.

      Microsoft might take it off them and throw the IP at someone else.

            Fundamentally wrong statement

            Frick no, Fallout 1 was bad out of the gate. It was released in 1997. That's far too late for it to be as broken as it is, for it to be as easy and handheld as it is, for the combat to be as tedious and filled with nonsense as it is, for the skill and perk system to be as shallow as it is, for player's dialogue to be so limited and poorly written, and generally just fricking amateur hour bullshit.

            The only thing slightly redeemable about Fallout 1 is the art, the setting, and some of the writing for the characters. It's why, when people complain about the later Fallouts--and to keep it on-topic, when they complain about the TV show--they are entirely focused on writing, setting, and canon, because when you actually play it, the old Fallouts were just as buggy, boring, and shallow as the 3D ones.

            Go suck a dick, homosexual. All of the things you mentioned are why the isometric Fallouts are good. Setting, writing, characters, art direction, animations and particularly the gameplay.
            That's also why NV is shit. Even if you have decent writing, the shitty Bethesda engine, the awful gameplay and the fricking horrible grey, washed out graphics and art direction completely ruin it.

          What about it has aged so terribly? The pre-rendered 3d looks nice, the writing is engaging, the gameplay is fun.

          Bethesda's games looked and played like ass at launch, frankly. That engine was already ten years old and showing it's clunkiness when F3 came out.

    The thing that infuriated me about the show was that they never once showed the characters' character sheets. They were THIS close in the beginning scene by talking about Lucy's speech skill. All they needed to do was make her "joke" about she was a 4 in guns, etc. Have Maximus pull out a BoS card that shows his personal skills, etc. It pissed me the frick off that the show didn't bother with this and we had to assume what their skills were.

    I find it funny how Amazon actually made a show where you actually need to have played the games before to fully understand everything that's happening (they don't explain bottlecaps for instance). The secondaries who watch this shit and talk about it without reference to the games just instantly reveal they're only capable of enjoying things at the surface-level while the creators of this adaptation actually did care about the IP for once and obviously so do the true fans.

          In Fallout 1, because core theme of Fallout 1 is that water is life, water is power. Water traders are the biggest organization in the game, your quest is to secure water for your people, the main antagonist dips people into magical FEV water to turn them into supermutants. Meanwhile Fallout 3's story is that THERE IS NO FRICKING WATER

            caps are a fiat currency backed by water

            It intially starts as 1-1 physically backed equivalent for water, but then NCR coins superceded it. When the NCR's gold reserve gets destroyed, bottlecaps return as a fiat currency

    i'm a fallout nerd whose fav is F2 and I loved the show. people complaining about it are miserable autists. the show is as lore accurate as a series like Fallout, which is full of retcons and inconsistencies in the core games anyway, can be. it's an enjoyable show and services the lore and universe very well.

      Bullshit, Bethesda is just so bad at writing people have accepted it as normal. Yes, there are retcons between Fallout 1, 2 and NV, but they aren't outright contradictions that make one mutually exclusive with the other. Moving Shady Sands 20 miles is completely different from moving it to 200 miles. You can retcon shit for the sake of advancing the story or you can retcon shit to confuse the frick out of viewers if they start asking questions. The Vault experiments were a retcon but it didn't contradict Fallout 1.

        FNAF is a rare case of not needing to play the game to enjoy it, it doesn't have good gameplay and the only reason it became so popular was thanks to "Let's play" youtubers overreacting for their videos. Can't think of any other good examples right now, but FNAF is a game purely used by e-celebs to create parasocial content. It's like watching a scary movie with a friend

    Why did the Brotherhood guy just decide to drop down in the middle of nowhere like that? They mention that they still have a long ways to go until their drop off point. They had no like sensor type of thing to pick up clues that he would find interesting, so you cant claim that. You also cant claim it was like intuition either, because he doesnt even notice the clues there, his squire points it out and he doesnt seem to care. You also cant say "oh, he noticed the radiation from the cave" because hes clearly scared and panics and doesnt want to go in there.

Quite frankly I don't give a shit if someone says that I'm wrong, to me this show was decent to good entertainment. I've talked to my friends about it who have also played the games and they don't give a shit about it so I dropped the subject.

      The show is actually pants on head moronic. From the common sense point of view I don't understand how the show actually started or what it even tried to get across, nothing about order of events and chain of events makes sense and when you ask show questions you are being "nitpicky" when the show is a mystery thriller that wants to be asked questions, and its themes are incoherent except the basic "the victim was actually the villain the entire time" twist. And when you nitpick clear inconsistencies with the games you are a virgin hater and Fallout games have always been inconsistent. Extremely bizzare case of handwaving of any pretty legitimate criticisms. Like how it doesn't make sense that the Ghoul used the power armor flaw (which is shooting at its torso) against first knights he encountered but not Maximus and then also pointing out that Titus's armor has a different type of welding possibly making it so that the flaw of shooting at its torso probably wouldn't have worked on his armor, which definitely means that Ghoul didn't try the flaw on Maximus because he has no way of knowing that Titus's armor has different welding and he would have no basis to presume the flaw would work on power armor type he's somehow unfamiliar with, despite being a Ghoul for centuries and never coming across T-60s prior to this show somehow even. The entire show is just an AI generated image, the more you look at it, the more you ask it questions, the dumber it gets. I can't believe someone genuinely got paid to write pic related, no one even bothered to check how this scene would retroactively apply both to Goggins's character/history and participation in the show. He didn't even know he would have to fight knights in the NCR headquarters, that was entirely coincidental with Maximus failing upwards and Quintus just deciding to trust Maximus where cold fusion is despite lying to his face just minutes prior.

          You forgot the part where he was seeing his bounty slipping past his fingers as he was right then and there to grab it and actually had more reason to use "the flaw" on Maximus than he had to approach the knights in episode 8 at all. When he clearly gained the high fricking ground over him at least?

          >decide to get some armor piercing rounds, just in case
          No, the implication is clearly that he always has special rounds on him at all times, he's a walking gameplay mechanics reference (like picking up cherry tomatoes to restore health or essentially using VATS). There's zero evidence to suggest he didn't already have armor piercing rounds on him against Maximus and just didn't use them and wasted his bullets shooting at him and he also had no logical reason to assume he would have to tackle any knights at all in NCR observatory, the place, the place of the enemies of Brotherhood of Steel.

          Even writers understand the story is stupid and characters are stupid in it, which is why none of the main characters canonically have INT over 5. These writers are incapable of writing better than that.

    I've never played any Fallout games and I like the show. The whole mid 20th century technology/society future doesn't make sense to me no matter how I look at it.

      Just think of it as a return to a better time after the failed social experiments of the 60s and beyond.

    i just simply have no interest in it
    that goes for pretty much all game>screen adaptations
    I like the most of the fallout games, and I like the premise and lore of the series but I just can't be assed watching it in a tv show

    The show is dumb even if you played the games or not and it's basicly fallout 4 the movie. Also when he fights the bear the he lands a couple good hits visibly rocking it and then decide to run away just dident make any sense

    Excuse me. If this discussion has NOTHING to do with the GAME at all then it rightly belongs in Cinemaphile

    Some of their changes are moronic, like shady sands new Vegas and the ghouls needing serums to not go feral.
    I still think the show is enjoyable, the set pieces feel a bit cheap tho.

    It really rubbed me wrong that thing about the ghouls. Cause they introduce this new gimmick in one episode and solve it for life in the same fricking episode

    Why didn’t the ghoul just attack the ghoul-serum place if they had so many fricking vials anyway. And if he needs them every single fricking day how in the hell is there a single non-feral anywhere? That’s at least 150 years of drinking that stuff

    I like them both, but I’m only halfway through the show and I swear to god if this shit turns into some dumb love story between the Maximus and Lucy I’m never watching it again.

    All baiting aside, as someone who's never played the games, I'm at least enjoying the gratuitous violence. I love when futuristic post-nuclear age tech hits like it's supposed to

    These threads take me back to being on Cinemaphile in 2008-2010 and trying to argue with Fallout 3 fans that Fallout 3 was shit. My autism hadn't fully matured yet so while I was autistic enough to argue about such things, I was still stupid enough to think everybody was capable of basic reasoning. So I'd keep trying to prove shit like
    >Let's even assume FO3 was "good." Can you acknowledge that that doesn't NECESSARILY entail that it was a GOOD FALLOUT GAME?
    or
    >Do you acknowledge that something can be "fun" without being "good?" For example, moronic children have fun eating sugar. But isn't it better to set the sugar aside temporarily, and learn to bake it into superior confectioneries?

    Now I can't imagine actually wading into the muck of a moron's brain and trying to convince them that eating shit is bad because shit tastes bad and tasting bad tastes tastes bad. I have way too much experience with the moron shoveling shit into his mouth and saying "BUT I'M HAVING FUN EATING IT? ARE YOU SAYING I'M NOT HAVING FUN?"

      Weren't you annoyed that they still used bottle caps?

      • 3 weeks ago

        No. I already accepted caps as becoming the currency for the series overall with 3, and even moreso when new vegas had them and had pre-war machines accepting them as money. Plus there was always kind of an issue with Fallout 2 where you would open a military depot which hadn't been opened since the war, and it had the NCR currency minted less than 20 years ago as loot.

    The show was good but went a little too far in a few specific moments, they could have explained a little more of the backstory better but I'm not a stickler for it.

    I enjoyed fallout 1, 2, and 3 was my favorite. I haven't played 4 and I was bored to tears and quit NV before finishing it.
