Is Fallout dead too?


No? HL2 Episode 2 came out 7 years ago. Fallout NV came out 4 years ago and there were rumors of Fallout 4 at E3


Kid Icarus: Upring was twenty one (21) years in the making.
Super Metroid -> Metroid Fusion was 8 - 10 years.
Action speaks louder than words. But words, when used right, overwhelm any action - Me, 2006
Let's put a smile on that face - The Joker, 2008

Neither of those games claimed to have adopted an episodic format and left the audience on a cliffhanger.
Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Well, there was a gap of 16 years between Tex Murphy 5: Overseer and Tex Murphy 6: Tesla Effect. Not only that, but the Tex Murphy series used to get new games every couple of years, and Overseer ended with a cliffhanger.

Then, 16 years later, we get a new game. Sure, it feels a bit indie, and FMV games have been dead for years now, but it IS a new game, continuing the story from where it left off. And its an amazing game, BTW. ^^
Difference between 30 and 60 FPS. If you can't notice it, you need new eyes.

Technically, but Wasteland 2 is more like what Fallout 3 would have been if it wasn't Bethesda-ized. There are lots of things that go a long time and get revived, especially now with Kickstarter being a thing. Things like Elite and Tex Murphy.

It was pretty clear to me that they had no idea where story was going anyway, so I'm not particularly hungry to see them try to finish it. HL2 had a crap ending. Episode 1 has a crap ending. Episode 2 had a crap ending. Extrapolate.

I'd say it's Half-Dead.

It's a dormant IP, not a dead one. It will rise when it seems all hope is lost, a shining beacon in the darkness, presented by GabeN, riding a mighty steed.

Half Life 3 will arrive one day. Today is not that day. It is too soon.
Steam Summer sale: June 19th - June 30th
Amazing deals on great games, including AAA titles. Only on PC. Thanks GabeN!
