Oh wasn't there a Kotaku about Fallout 4 being in Boston? Or was it Bollocks by this one Troll?


But couldn't just everyone submit a patent and office have still check if this is legit?


Oh and Ben Affleck as MC?

What did you expect? The series is all about America.

The series is about survival in a post apocalyptic world, with tactical combat.

How often can they milk the same exact setting for real, hey look its 50s America again. But in the future.

Tropical setting would be cool, or Asian , or European. Anything.

Well, that whole setting is kinda what makes the series unique. Otherwise we'd just get Bethesda Wasteland.

Haven't we seen enough faux patent submissions last year for several things? I don't get my hopes up...

VGX Reveal pls!

Well...Fallout (and Wasteland to a degree) are both based around post-WW2 fear of communism and possibility of a follow-up conflict truly being a war to end all wars, best exemplified by American jingoism.

While you could set Fallout outside of the USA, it is as key to the setting as GTA taking place in the US.

It's getting closer!

I never really got started on New Vegas... I have the GOTY version, so I think I'm covered until Fallout 4 is released.

Kind of off topic, but my first thought when I read the thread title was that it's some kind of Shadow of Mordor spinoff.

Fallout is all about the "exact same setting". The setting is the main draw for this series.
The music, the vaults, the pitboys, the propaganda.
