You have no idea how much I dread any Fallout launch.

The Hype, the Hype never changes.
Even if there is a bit too much of it.
I've been rpetty good at avoiding hype of all games in general. However I know when certian brand name games launch, I have to find a new group of friends ebcause suddenly I have nothing in common or even relatable witht he people I used to spend time with. :/Guess I'll be playing more Wildstar this month.
*patiently wait for Star Citizen. I said patiently ? I lied !*
I'm not a great fan of the "Hype" even if i'm a great fan of the Fallout licence... But i will wait a moment before playing it. The time they patch it a dozen of time (it's bethesda, the bugmaster) and wait a steam sold (praise lord Gaben)but due the low number of friend who play almost anything.. I don't have to change friends. It's a kind of advantage !... I guess.
Oh gawd, star citizen... XDA friend of mine has already spent over $3500 on that game, buying ships before they even exist.When he hit hard times IRL on money he got mad he couldnt re-sell them ebcause no one wanted a game that didnt exist yet.
That.... That.. I will just stick with one ship or two and wait the official launch ^^'
I wouldn't say no one wants a game that doesn't exist yet, as it has over million backers and there are many other games that people pay to support even if they only saw a tech demo.
But most people don't get it. You're not buying the game, or the ship. You are contributing to the game development and the copy of the game along with a ship is what you get in exchange. People just don't think about it that way, gotta consider all the risks that are involved.
Of course ships are "purchasable" this way so devs would get more money out of people, but i don't really see it as a bad thing.
No one is forcing anyone to do anything and it is perfectly feasible to wait for the Star Citizen launch, then buy the game and get the ships by actually playing it.
Star Citizen, lol, the game that never was. I gave up waiting and hoping and just seeing pretty movies instead of game play and bought Elite Dangerous instead. best gaming decision I ever made. ED has come a long way from the 'mile wide, inch deep' beginning. Now it is a game worth playing. But back to Fallout. I only came in at Fallout 3, then New Vegas but Fallout is a game you keep going back too again and again. It is highly modable so is never dull, my Fallout 3 and New Vegas are almost unrecognisable from the vanilla versions and keep on changing as the highly skilled player-modders produce new stuff. Fallout 4 promises to be a modder's dream and already has a highly intricate crafting system even in the vanilla version. I will be playing the hell out of it for sure. Yes, maybe it is hyped a lot but so what? That is how games are produced these days. Maybe if FE had had more hype...? But that is spilled milk. Call me a sheep if you want but I'm happy to follow the flock rather than die in the wilderness.
Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.
I would rather die peacefully in my sleep, like Grandad, than screaming, like his passengers
this made me lol

I do enjoy Fallout but I don't go so far as buying the edition that comes with a pair of socks. That's just silly. The merchandising on this one has gone completely off the deep end.
the impulsive part of me wanted the pipboy edition, but the rational part bitch slapped it and said i didnt have a smartphone
That's why you slap her back and say, "Oh no you din't...I do have feet girlfriend, and I'ma buy the Special Sock Edition!"
*Stares at the companies fighting for rights to produce fallout brand sodas*
i actually dont wear socks until winter when my feet get real cold
And i thought i'm only one who refuses smartphones :D
Same here. Bleh.. Why have a smartphone when the only thing i do with my phone is... to phone ?
I'm not going to lie, this post is incredibly unneeded, and therefore shouldn't be on a site where we're supposed to be a community that supports one another. This is bashing a MASSIVE fanbase. I understand that this game is incredibly hyped, I get that. But isn't every game? Star Wars Battlefront, Dishonored 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, Halo 5, Black Ops 3, Rainbow Six Siege, there's a massive list of games people are hyped for. If you're calling people who are excited to play a game they've waited years for sheep, then aren't you a sheep for getting so excited over your own weekly parties? Instead of trying to be the cool-kid nonconformist on the block, how about you take this post down, because it may bother some people to the point of them believing this community is toxic towards players with certain interests. I will admit, I am a huge Fallout fan, as I have been playing them for years, but making a post that is literally critizing fans of a game, in a community of a game with a very similar setting, is incredibly asinine. I get that pre-releases and shit like that are like a "Whoopty doo" situation, but if you're a fan of a game, do whatever the hell you want with it. I like my cake, you like your cake. And for the special editions, if a person likes collector items, let them like collector items. People collect shit. That's their buisness. I'll be sure to include a "Baaa baaa" post everytime I see an announcement for your parties that people get excited for. Have an excellent day.

Just wondering why you got personal Kabou...
The posts I made were a broad comment about "hype". Hopefully in an amusing way. Essentially, theres no need for anybody to get thier knickers in a twist.
I got personal in this situation because this isn't a broad comment about "Hype", there is literally the well known iconic symbol for Fallout in the picture you posted. And the "baa" things would just add to the annoyance. This is still bashing an entire following of a game which is being released soon. Don't give me the bull crap of you posting this just because, when Fallout 4, which is a hyped game, is coming out in 4 days. Essentially, there's no need to make a post like this, when this community is already seen as toxic.
I posted "Critique welcomed".. your all welcome to have your say
But Kabou. Do not presume to tell an author how thier post was intended.
To repeat .It was not intended to be toxic or " Bashing" it was intended to be humourous..
I will let Reaper decide wether the post and now thread stays or goes
Who in the world finds it funny to be called a sheep? I can almost promise you that at least 50% of this game's community is a Fallout fan. Hell, FE and Fallout have a similar concept. Yeah maybe YOU found it funny, but I'm sure the fans of Fallout, and the fans of pre-purchasing/ordering games found this to be bashing. You actually called them sheep, and then proceeded to do it again. That is toxic, whether it was meant to be or not.
Meh, one calls it humourous and one calls it toxic. The intent of the OP has been explained by the author. The reader can either agree or disagree but they cannot state as fact the intentions of the author. If this is to become an argument then it is an argument that cannot be resolved. Maybe it is best left?
I agree, Kabou. People should have the right to enjoy what games they like, Buy what editions they take a fancy to for the collectors items.
WHATS FALLOUT? OH DEAR, HOW DEPRESSING ,ANY FRESHNESS IS SO FAR GONE MUST THE HYPE GO ON /

I'm sure I am not a fallout hyper..I rather spend time being a gopnik in GTAV:
"Meet Strelok,your friendly gopnik neighbour."
And Guild Wars 2.Though,I sure enjoy'd seeing that Bethseda finally did what people wanted.But I won't touch the game until I'll get bored of the rest of the games,after all,I didn't even bought it and won't plan since I wasted actual around 50-60 euros on GTAV,which,in my country,that's quite a lot of fuckin' money..
As this post made just for -joking-?I rather see it insulting.As people have the freedom to play what they want and buy whatever game they want.Even a fuckin' hentai game for their fantasy desire.
I havnt found a hentai game worth buying yet. :P
Try Hatoful Boyfriend.Not hentai but...
I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. While I do believe the intent was to be a light-hearted jab, I suspect one of the reasons things are a little raw right now is that folks are panicking a bit about how Fallout 4's release is going to affect this community as a whole, so there's likely some pressure outside this thread on both sides.
