Wasteland style Fallout game??????

Post by Wombatprod »

Greetings all,

I just wanted to put out my thoughts with the change in the gaming environment that has happened with Microsoft purchase of ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda, would that make it easier for a wasteland style fallout game like the original fallout 1 and 2?

Yes, I am aware of the history of Wasteland and the sequels which are fantastic and highly enjoyable but would there be any interest in seeing something similar for the Fallout setting or maybe doing a more "X-com" style with the Brotherhood of Steel?

I would love to see either option in the future or more wasteland games, all options are great. I was just wondering what other people were thinking.

Regards

I wanna play a Wasteland city/state builder. The Rangers are supposed to be descended from army engineers, right? Well let's engineer the Wasteland into a more hospitable place. Build bridges, roads, set up construction projects, etc. Think like Tropico and Sim City.

Or imagine like a Spintires-like spin off where you drive a realistically handling Kodiak through a realistically modeled Wasteland environment and you gotta take care to avoid getting stuck in mud pits and ruins and whatnot. Your vehicle could have extensive customization. The premise could be as simple as "you are a delivery driver".

What about a Wasteland Monster Hunter like game. Instead of playing as one of the Ranger's kill teams like Echo or November, you play as a team of Ranger researchers working to collect, study, and understand the various new strange flora and fauna of the Wasteland. Maybe you're working to open a zoo.

Bethesda produces some of the most popular franchises in video game history, including The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Doom. If Microsoft wanted to get a ton of popular properties in one purchase, it found the perfect publisher. It really is that simple.

I'm on board with this, and it's frankly the whole reason I jumped into the forums. The settlement functionality in Fallout 4 adds the "just one more turn" feel to the game, which if done properly, can add a whole new dimension. Imagine 2-4 players, collecting parts and equipment and building settlements, and pacifying or hiring local thugs for defense; then each of those players calling on other Ranger squads to come to their assistance if things get hairy, with each group having to prioritize based on what's going on where they are... might be complicated to code, but the payout would be amazing.

These are also the mentally nutritional equivalent of cherry pie filling, as opposed to Brussels sprouts, garlic, liver, and eggs. It's no wonder they are so popular with their chosen audience.

The Divinity series has been kicking since 2002, but it was not until the 2014 title Divinity: Original Sin when the RPG series found mainstream success. Those familiar with Wasteland's Isometric RPG gameplay will only have to adjust a little bit to this series' mechanics. Like Wasteland 3, the two games in the Divinity: Original Sin subseries can be played cooperatively from start to finish, a rarity for the genre.
