A Few New Distractions (From Game of Thrones)

Bethesda had a conference last night, Game of Thrones also had their season finale but that’s not important right now. They talked about some of the games they are working on. There are only a few that I am really interested in, Fallout 4 and Doom (Doom 4).

Fallout 4

This is one that I have been waiting for a long time. Ever since Fallout 3 came out in 2008, I have been a huge fan of the series. This is evident from all the Fallout stuff I have purchased over the last few years. Fallout 3 is my second favorite game of all time (Half-Life 2 being the first). The open world, the story, the choice, that was something I never experienced before. The Elder Scrolls games kind of had that too but I was never into the whole fantasy thing. I was always more of a sci-fi fan.

When they showed off more Fallout 4 stuff, I was over the moon. The world in this game looks even bigger and more vibrant than 3. I suppose it isn’t too hard when 3 was mostly brown and grey. I like how this one starts before the war and then transitions post war. They also recorded dialogue for the playable characters where the male one is voiced by Troy Baker (I hear he’s big in this thing). There is also crafting in the game where you can build houses and then make settlements and have to defend them. You can also have multiple settlements. The amount of customization is mind blowing. Also the collector’s edition gets you a freakin’ Pip Boy.

The worse part is that I have to wait until November 10th to get it. (Shame, shame, shame … inside joke). Here’s a demo of it:

Doom (Doom 4)

There’s also Doom, it’s been 12 years since Doom 3. I played Doom 1 and 2 a lot. I liked the amount of action they had and how quickly it happened. Doom 3 was a little slower and more just things constantly popping up out of nowhere. What got me was the demo which was awesome:

I’ll probably almost be done Fallout 4 by Spring 2016 when the game comes out.
