QuakeCon 2015: What Really Grinds My Gears about Fallout 4



On Friday Bethesda had a sneak peak for Fallout 4 at Quakecon 2015. Quakecon is a PC gaming conference with the largest LAN party in the country. PC Master race is in full effect. Yet, Bethesda decides to show a console game play trailer for the upcoming release of Fallout 4. Lets put aside the fact that I was cringing the entire time I saw the guy turn around or aim. The graphics were atrocious.

what-year-is-itYou might be able to chalk it up to alpha footage, but I have a feeling the final product will not be much better. I kept thinking to my self WHAT YEAR IS IT?

I am a huge Fallout fan and I would rather have great game-play over graphics, but c’mon. Aside from the painfully hard to watch demo the game itself looks amazing. Huge open world, companions, which apparently you can have relationships with, irregardless of your sexual preference. An interesting skill system which will allow you to open up special abilities. All controllable through the Pip-boy wrist watch.

One lucky Quakecon attendee actually won a real life Pip-boy!

I hope the graphics are not the final product and I am looking forward to wasting many many hours in Fallout 4.

  1. Do you even videogames? Pre-alpha under 6 months from release? Methinks you spend too much time with Steam’s Early access program where games are perpetually in Alpha.

    This is final gameplay, get over it or fuck off back to Cryengine.
