Bethesda might actually get this right.
stop lying to yourself. being pessimistic only softens the impact of total suckage.

I lost my interest the moment I learned the game "world" will be Washington DC and a small surrounding area.

I fucking hate this.

WHERE IS THE WORLD TO EXPLORE?

WHERE ARE ALL THE RANDOM ENCOUNTERS?

WHERE ARE ALL THE OBLIVION VOICE ACTORS....  oh there they are.

I stopped waiting for this game.

I rest my case.

And in addition to everything else, the inclusion of the Fatman really bugs me. Given the guy's tone when he unveiled it, it's like they put it in specifically to be loledgy (which wouldn't surprise me in the slightest). The fact that he just irradiated himself all to hell and would be blind from looking at the blast is a backseat to that stupid announcer's "lol this is the NUCLEAR BOMB :D :D :D" voice.

Welcome to video games! We kindly ask that you check your reality at the door and turn your cell phone off during the presentation.

My only problem with the game is that it looks a little easy, but that video doesn't say where or when in the game it takes place, so I'm counting on the fact that it will be harder than that (and possibly have adjustable difficulty like in Oblivion).

Everything else looks like lots of fun.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

An entire city (ruined as it may be) is quite a lot to explore. Would you have preferred it be Oblivion-style with a whole lot of nothing in between the cities?

I stated this in my original post, there doesn't seem to be any reason to explore at all. It looks like a whole lot of nothing during the city. It looks like a level, not a zone.

I didn't mean the bandits getting higher-level crap as the player did, if that was what you were referring to. I meant the adjustable difficulty in the pause menu. I never played with it much, but I think it raised enemies' stats, for the most part.

I'm guessing there's 1.) going to be a lot of stuff underground and 2.) a lot more to see other than what they showed (hopefully with more of a sense of direction).

There will be a mini-map, and fast travel, so that should help in aimless wandering.

it looks like i could at least stand to play it for more than 15 minutes, which is more than i could say for fallout 1 or 2. i agree that it looks like a not-very-improved oblivion mod, and i don't know if it was wise to show the game in a clearly very-well-equipped, high-statsed position, because it did make it hard to make any good judgments about the combat, which looks interesting. it would have been nice to show us one or two of the landmarks he kept talking about, or like to go inside something, but i guess all that will forthcome and until then it's not like we're about to preorder the collector's edition anyway.

What I am seeing from the videos, the guy isn't loosing any health, so it is my guess that the version he is playing is a version with some sort of godmode on. Think I should recheck that, if I can get arsed. But anyways, overall it doesnt look all THAT bad, expect the goddamn nuke thrower. Thinking that the whole world has been destroyed by nukes, the people would not feel all too good about using nukes as infantry weapons. But I guess that is just the whole vidya game aspect of it.

Anyways, like I said, im not really waiting for any game to arrive, I rather be surprised when the game arrives and I get to try it, read some reviews and whatnot.

Who knows what the final version will be... Combination of hit percentages and freemode shooting + nade tossing seems rather peculiar. I was pretty worried - did that guy demonstrate it with pad-controller? No wonder the moving seemed so cubic. What becomes to graphics... Well, I think that graphics are not that important if immersiviness of game is deep enough. And most games don't look too good on my Ancient PC anyway. Besides they will most likely polish graphics soooo much before releasing.

Sigh... Probably my rig won't even run it so I'm not that optimistic about playing it soon after it release.

Nowadays graphics seem to take place over immersive gameplay :(

Bring back 'real PC gaming' already, things seem to be getting more console-ish by the moment (although i feel some games originally on console are far better on PC)

Failing that, make me a full length Deus Ex 1 mod!

Its all fun and games until somebody gets a FAIL!
