Three Dog's coming back?

...

FUCK YES!

Oh, YES! PLEASE!PLEASE!PLEASE!PLS!PLOX!

Three Dog was so much better than Mr. New Vegas and I loved FO3. Due to the Lone Wanderer boosting the signal, the next game could conceivably be set anywhere in the eastern US.

Now I'm excited, even if we're probably a long way off...

800 hours of play and *still counting* with Fallout 3. Non-modded on the Xbox no less. It would take quite some time to properly articulate exactly how or why that game has such a grip on me.

About 200 hours of play on New Vegas (a significant portion spent on a couple of DLCs I loved). I got my money's worth, but have no desire to ever play it again.

To each their own.

If it is as good as New Vegas, I will buy it. New Vegas sold me on the series although I'm going to wait for a good sale before picking up 3.

*backs into a corner

D:

I....I-I thought I killed you >_>

tmande2nd:
I killed him because I could not stand his voice anymore.

Not like Bethesda ports player choice over anyway.

I hope the next Fallout game is an MMO.

I would like to hunt you down for what you just said.

StormShaun:
I still think that his radio station has been boosted to all over America then just DC, why? Of course it's because of the Lone Wonderer, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't do all the work and already in command of the Brotherhood of steel.

Still... I look forward for Fallout 4 because I is going to look like Skyrim (For the graphics) but a little better.
Also because of (hopefully) all the new stuff it will bring. :D

I do not think he would be in command of the Brotherhood. He did not seem the "Commander" type. Perhaps the Public Relations person. I think the Brotherhood would be able to recruit and increase their ranks because of his calls. With increase of manpower, they could spread out and form a new nation (like the NCR did). Perhaps even explore the... dang forgot the groups name, Commonwealth(?)... and see the new technological advances (or old, because of reinventing stuff) they did. They were not that far away from the Capital wastes anyway.

You want to know something? I've beaten the game several times and fully explored the capital wasteland however I've never once spoken to three dog. :p

Wait... what?

How do you do that? Don't you have to talk to him to advance the Main quest?

3 was better. Sure they did not have some of the game play that made NV good, like the faction standings and a slightly better barter system. But they lost ground on the storytelling, and your character just seemed not to have any back-story (just the base game, I do not know if Lonesome Road added or not).

3 felt like you were changing the political landscape of the Capital wastes, helping the Brotherhood establish their nation, Or helping no one but yourself.

In NV, all the towns looked and felt the same. But in 3, Each one had a different life to it. From Megaton, a town in a crater that was formed by an unexploded nuke (some people worshiped the bomb). To Underworld, a town in the US Natural History Museum made up of goules.

Go ahead and by GOTY edition of 3 now. The only thing you have to lose is the hours you will spend exploring everything.

Wait... what?

How do you do that? Don't you have to talk to him to advance the Main quest?

No, you can totally skip him by going to the Jefferson Memorial before meeting him, that's what I did my first playthrough.
Or you could stumble onto the vault that he's at, I think that works.

I found out by accident you can bypass him and go straight to Rivot City instead. The downside to this is I missed out on a cool scripted scene.

Huh... I've never tried that. What quest does it skip to if you go right there?

Getting the Brotherhood to the radio tower, fixing his antenna, and I think there's another one in there that gets skipped somewhere, can't remember.

All I care about is that they are likely putting it in Boston, and will hopefully ignore the West Coast. Now all I have to do is wait for Obsidian to make the real Fallout 4.

I'll be over the moon to have more Fallout. My only issue is I wish we could have one game set somewhere other than the US. Sure I love the diners and the propaganda-screaming Mr Gutsy and the ubiquitous Nuka Cola vending machines, but it'd be nice to see how the other side fared after the bombs came down. An alternate China based on their projections from the 50s of a glorious socialist future. Fallout Taipei.

Hell, the whole world is supposedly devastated. Fallout Rio. Fallout Paris. Fallout Cumbernauld? They wouldn't even have to change much of the scenery.

DVS BSTrD:
Maybe Fallout San Francisco?
"Thanks for listening, girly men."

Bethesda have already commented that they'll take the East Coast and let Black Isle/Obsidian handle the West Coast, plus San Francisco was already in Fallout 2. 4 is billed to be set in The Commonwealth mentioned in 3, supposedly built up around MIT.

OT: Three Dog was such an annoying gob-shite in 3, it'd be a shame for him to reappear in 4. He was the Fallout version of The Adoring Fan, singing the PCs praises over and over. The soundtrack to 3 was amazing but it was such a shame we had to put up with him mouthing off between every few tracks.

Me55enger:
Good to hear they skipped NV and went for what look like a Fallout 3 "sequel"

Fallout 3 was totally mind-blowingly amazing. NV was like the mutated half-creature of that binary.

Lookin' foward to it.

And I feel the exact opposite!

FO3 Bores me to tears
FO:NV is still a joy

(Good thing we all have the freedom to choose or we'd be fighting each other in The Thorn's pit!)

Ldude893:
All hail 3-Dog, glorious DJ of the atomic wastes and player of catchy 50s music.

Seriously, I'd love to see him come back for a sequel. Perhaps they're setting the next game in New York? Then again, that city's been incredibly overused in gaming.

As far as I'm aware, the plan has been for it to be in Boston for a while. The Commonwealth, which, if I haven't forgotten my Fallout lore, is an extremely unique environment in the known Wasteland. They even teased it with one of the main plot characters in FO3 (Doctor Li, I believe) who went there on her own.

Shoggoth2588:
Awesome! Well mostly...Is there a petition to get the next Fallout on the Wii U yet? The gamepad would make for an awesome real-time Pipboy for example...

While that would be cool, I don't want Bethesda to sacrifice development time so they can port it to the wii.

ALL OF MY YES!!!

Though, on a more measured note, I found Fallout 3 to be one of the best games Bethesda has made (I perfer New Vegas, but thats beside the point). It has they're best writing, quests, and even corrected the travesties in Depth that Oblivion committed (Though that Said i still really liked Oblivion)

I just REALLY of hope they dont follow the Skyrim trail again and dumb down more shit for newcommers to the series

War Penguin:
Aaaaaand the Fallout 3/New Vegas bashing begins...

OT: Yes. Yes! YES!!! Three Dog was the best part of Fallout 3! God almighty I hope he's in the next one and this isn't just a cheap publicity stunt! /sarcasm

Fixed that for ya.

:P

I hope Fallout 4 learns from the brilliant Fallout NV. A wide diversity of endings which change for every location and major character depending on your interaction with them, a superior morality system that extends beyond the boring standard binary good/evil choices, a darker and edger theme, better character development for your companions and side content that felt more influential in the game world.

I've always had a suspicion that Fallout NV was designed to be experimental in many things it did so that beth soft could adopt the most successful and popular innovations and build upon them (I mean, weapon modding, disguises, survival stuff, faction game play, the dual morality system, the localised morality system, modular ending design etc)

Given the way they were willing to alter the leveling system in TES to include 'perks' from their experiences with FO3, because they found people liked them I think we will see adoption of some of the best and most popular features of FO:NV hopefully taken a further step.

Its nice when you see two innovative groups bouncing ideas between themselves.

That is true I guess. The Lone Wonderer is the kind of person who likes to get his hands dirty instead of leading and giving orders.
And I could see him as an "Icon" for the BoS but not apart of it.

Honestly if my guy did anything it would be either...

- Wonder the country by himself (Well he is the Lone Wonderer) killing threats, helping good factions and killing bad guys. So basically he would become a wasteland legend.

- Make his own faction. Devoted to doing good and etc.

But hey... we have not idea what the cannon ending or Lone Wonderer would be... but I would like to see him again. D:

The Idea of a fallout game with a new shiny polished engine makes me excited

the Idea of it being made by bethesda..... cautiously optimistic..if not a little disapointed

3 was better. Sure they did not have some of the game play that made NV good, like the faction standings and a slightly better barter system. But they lost ground on the storytelling, and your character just seemed not to have any back-story (just the base game, I do not know if Lonesome Road added or not).

But the writing in Fallout 3 was horrible and riddled with plotholes you could drive a 727 through.

Awesome. Fallout 3 was fun, though I still feel that New Vegas added some desperately needed improvements. Namely on repair.

Then again, I may be biased, due to my love affair with Jury Rigging. Seriously, that perk is a must-have. And I love it so, so much.

So, really, I'd love a Fallout 3 sequel, so long as they carry over the repair system from New Vegas, complete with repair kits you can craft, and the Jury Rigging perk. That would be perfect.

Also, good to see Three Dog again. The guy had style.

Mr.Tea:

Sansha:
I desperately hope this is more East Coast lunacy. Maybe New York, or even Toronto or Anchorage. I'd LOVE to see a Fallout set in a cold climate. New story, huge history, new kind of hardcore mode.

Whoa whoa whoa, you're probably just mentioning it because it was DLC for Fallout 3, but Anchorage so far from the east coast that it's further west than the entire west coast!

I know this. I got excited and my mind ran away on me.

Scratch that...reverse it. I say fie to Fallout 4, I'll have Wasteland 2 and Project Eternity to keep me warm at night. Also Three Dog is the reason I never listened to the radio in Fallout 3...just terrible VA.

EDIT: Hmmmm I'll also have Shadowrun Returns and probably Cyberpunk 2077 as well...Bethesda are going to struggle to get a look in o my PC.

What do you mean? I thought Fallout 3's writing was a bit silly, but plotholes?

I killed him because he, like everything else in that game, had a completely illogical existence and ruined my verisimilitude at every turn.

Fair enough. That's a reasonable subjective opinion.

While NV didn't have character backstory I really didn't feel that it was detrimental.

But I couldn't stand the story and world in Fallout 3. When I'm playing an RPG I expect the quests to make some sort of logical sense. New Vegas did this well. Fallout 3 has a city built around an unexploded nuclear bomb for no discernible reason, gives you the option to explode said nuclear bomb for an absurd reason.

The less said about Little Lamplight the better. There are a myriad of other gripes with characters and locations that made me roll my eyes. Little retconns that Bethesda indulged in that made the Fallout universe fall apart.

I will admit that the Fallout 3 map was perhaps more fun to get around than New Vegas but I'll take verisimilitude and narrative over "fun".

New Vegas doesn't exactly need a story. It expects you to know it already because frankly everything NV did was leaked way back before Fallout 3 even existed. That and the West Coast has plenty of development, and is rapidly expanding. A trend started way back in FO2 with a very obvious future that they tell you throughout the game.

Back story? You made your own back story by talking to the NPCs. You aren't told explicitly because no one really cares.

"oh no I lost my poor daddums! oh no!"

All anyone will do is laugh and maybe even try to scam you. So it makes literary sense to keep it to yourself instead of explaining your entire life story to whoever comes along. That and the DLC did expand on it, which in turn is commentary on the human condition and the hypocrisy of Ulysses. Even though the DLC doesn't explicitly show that commentary, its there.

And on top of that, what politics? All I seen where "nice guy" whiners that couldn't do a single thing to help themselves. Even though they had the most trivial problems in the history of Fallout. Problems the West Coast laughed at even with California reverting back to a desert. And on top of that, the whiners didn't even know what they wanted and when they did their mentality was contrived at best.

I'd love to see a Fallout set outside of the US but I know that's a pipedream. A fallout set in and around Moscow would be really interesting, Beijing and Shanghai too, see the devastation from the other side.

They could even do a Fallout London, it is one of the most interesting cities in the world.

Three dog? Meh.. Mr. New Vegas was better!

Hopefully you can make a character in this one that has hair like a black person's other than some kind of afro and a low cut.
