We woke up this morning to a YUUUUGE potential leak. Maybe. I mean, it's not like most regular franchises aren't in development at some point. So really, this is just probably confirming what we already know, right? Does this kind of news even get you off anymore, or do you need the hard stuff? The real game juice? Screenshots. Dev diaries. Hard, long, wet code.

Regardless, I'm more excited for the next Elder Scrolls OFFLINE game...

    Bruce has a lot of options on games he hasn't played.

    So this might get a lot of kickback, but here is what I think would work for an "MMO" style for Fallout 5.
    Basically, combine the online aspect that Assassins Creed Unity had with Fallout style gameplay.
    You can play through the single player story line, no problem. But there are areas where you can 'log on' and join up with other players who are in the areas for certain missions.
    Also add co-op for the entire Fallout game but give that 2nd player the ability to take over and play in place of your AI companions.

    Fallout 4 is just lack luster when it comes to quests and actual things to do. There is such a small amount of quests and even with the quests there are, they are so boring and not well written that I don't even feel like the DLCs can't fix. I really do hope that Obsidian do make a game with the Fallout 4 engine, like they did with New Vegas because they are a lot more reliable when it comes to actually writing a good story, even for the smallest quests. The dialogue options go without saying that they are the worst and linear way of masking that it's just "Yes/Sacrastic Yes/Mean Yes/No" and I agree greatly with what Lawrence said about the difference in content when it comes to quests, like the farmer's daughter thing. Fallout 4 generally feels extremely streamlined and linear, which is surprising for an open world game, but after 100 hours in New Vegas or even Fallout 3, I still had plenty to do, whilst in Fallout 4, 100 hours in I already discovered mostly all locations on the map and the only quests I had in my quest log were the absolutely stupid repeatable missions from the Minutemen or any other factions, etc. The lack of content in Fallout 4 is disappointing, and I'm glad at least Lawrence is bringing it up, I feel like Achievement Hunter and Rooster Teeth are a little more drawn away from making critique about Fallout 4 as they were sponsored by Fallout Shelter and Bethesda many times, and I'm sure they'll deny this, but you can see the bias. The way they were shutting down Lawrence's actual good review of the time that he played of the game was a little saddening, considering these guys report on games, etc.

    tl;dr, Fallout 4 lacks good content and feels linear for a open world game. Lawrence is on the right track.

      While I did and still do have a lot of fun with fallout 4, I definitely agree with you and Lawrence on the lack of deeper or more complicated quests or just more unique things to do in the game. While I have a lot of fun exploring the world and fighting the enemies, I always have this small feeling in the back of my mind that I wish there was more to do in this cool world. However while I do see your reasoning to why you might think that Rooster Teeth are bias, I have to disagree with you on that. I feel that they are not truly reviewing it not because they are bias or that Bethesda has sponsored them in the past, but because they have always made a point to avoid giving reviews on any game. They have said time and again that they do not wish to be seen as video game reviewers.

    I'm with Lawrence on this one, ME1 is my favorite, and they fucked up part of the canon having you reload in 2. Also, it ages so well, and I loved the mako. it was fun to drive around on abandoned planets searching for stuff to collect.

    I think it's funny that on the Patch, Gus, Meg, and Ryan relentlessly made fun of anyone who said Fallout 4 wasn't an AMAZING game, and insulted the hell out of a guy that dared to give it a score in the 70's (which is still a decent score). Yet here, we have 4 other Rooster Teeth/Funhaus guys who pretty much think it was mediocre. I only wish we could get that kind of diversity of opinion on one show.


    I know it's unreasonable to expect that all the time, though. But I do wonder if any of those Patch guys have changed their opinions.

    You know, it's so hard listening to an opinion that goes against your own because I LOVE the Mass Effect Trilogy, but listening to you guys talk about how you should be more open and interpretive to someone else's opinions has really helped me be appreciative and think more about not only the games I like, but why other people like the same games I do. Thanks guys!

    I had the exact same experience with Fallout 4 as Lawrence, So many people saying how amazing it was so I invested myself for around 40-50 hours and tried my hardest to like it but I just couldn't get into it. That said I sunk at least 100 hours in Fallout 3, New Vegas, Oblivion and Skyrim, also played through Fallout 1 and 2

    I know you pay attention to analytics for videos on YouTube but I was just curious as to how often or whether or not you ever check the numbers on the Rooster Teeth site or app? If there is a drop in views on the YouTube side do you ever see if the site or app side picks up the slack? Ever since the Rooster Teeth app it is how I view about 90% of Rooster Teeth content now.

    I feel you, Lawrence, I've played exactly 39 hours of Fallout 4 and I found it boring as hell. I think it comes down to Bethesda games like FO and TES all being very... modular? All of the gameplay seems to be just a different flavor of the same mindless thing you did 2 minutes ago, and after you've done that for the first time in a previous game (Skyrim, FO3, Oblivion, Morrowind) it's just boring to do it again in the next game they crank out.

    Lawrence kind of glossed over it, but I feel it's worth saying again: If you have a Google Play Music subscription you automatically get YT Red. Dunno if it goes the other way. But as a Play subscriber, it was really cool to just stop seeing YT ads when it rolled out.

    I like the discussions you guys had, and just with regard to Mass Effect and some of the choices, like adding in reloads, the developers said they liked the reasons in game why it was unique but when they looked at how things were played after release they realized that instead of tense firefights where people counted their shots or timed them, they'd get people who would go wild and then sit and wait for it to cool down and start again. They said this wasn't how they intended it to be played and they felt the lack of ammo got rid of some tension they were aiming for

    bruce... you cant say you played an mmo if you played less 24 hours because theres no way you got to even half of max level in 10 hours. did you even do a single one of the dungeons in eso to call it trash?

      I think he's saying he doesn't want to put 24 hours into something before he gets to the fun part. Some people find leveling and max level stuff satisfying and entertaining, others don't.

    The appeal to Elder Scrolls and Fallout is how customisation your character is in terms of gear, stats and moral choices. You can't make a MMO as as diverse for balance reasons.

    I have a question about the Youtube Red ads. You always say that it directly supports the content creators. Can someone shed light on how this works? I want to know how paying $10 monthly would support FunHaus more than me watching the ads before/during all videos. With there being so many creators on Youtube is there some way to confirm that me paying for YTRed gets more money to FunHaus/RT? To me, it just seems that YTRed has to support so many YouTube creators spread out and then you guys missing the direct ad views from me could be detrimental? I'm just confused about it.


    Edit: By me saying there are many creators spread out, I mean to say that how much of my $10 would be distributed to FunHaus/Rooster Teeth over other videos from other creators that I end up watching as well? Just seems like it would get spread thin.

    I've put exactly 300 hours into playing Skyrim; this includes beating every quest, not including the quests that renew themselves immediately after being completed (e.g. Night Mother quests), and getting every achievement. I can completely understand Lawrence's feelings behind Elder Scrolls and Fallout; there were several times that I shut out of the game for having to go into ANOTHER cave, fight ANOTHER Draugr lord or whatever, and then go back only to have it repeat. I honestly had more fun walking around the world and discovering new places and people.


    I guess the only difference between Lawrence and me is that I'm much more stubborn when it comes to playing a repetitive game to get towards an ultimate goal.

    I agree with Adam concerning hype around games. Personally, I feel like it's getting a bit too much, especially with how early a game is announced. It creates an awkward balancing act for the developers because they have to keep people engaged and interested, but at the same time not reveal too much. That or they announce it and let it fall into almost obscurity, which can be a hit-or-miss scenario; either people get excited again for it or just stop caring.


    Developers also risk saying something that is bound to change, as all games are, while fans still believe it will be in the final product. This can hurt the game/user reviews of the game because they were let down by the hype.


    Hype is intoxicating. We all fall victim to it at some point. We just have to remember to take things with a grain of salt.

    I enjoyed Fallout 4 and Skyrim, but at the same time I do like a lot of the changes suggested in this video. I guess ideally, to have both a wide appeal and also a deeper gameplay, maybe you could have multiple game modes? And not just like " you control the story and make huge decisions" vs "story controls you", but also separate selection for like "can quest NPCs be killed" and "do you need to eat and drink to live".

    I respectfully disagree with what you guys were saying about Mass Effect. Personally, I feel like Mass Effect 3 was the best of the series. My reasoning comes down to: gameplay, replay-ability, and then story. To me, ME3 had the best gameplay of the series, the controls felt well done, each weapon actually had a different feel when using them, and the different abilities allowed for multiple tactics. I also played through ME3 three times and ultimately got all the achievements for the game, something I rarely do because normally it feels like a grind. And honestly, I liked the story. I liked what I got to do as Commander Shepard, I liked interacting with my squad, and I liked where I got to go.


    Maybe it wasn't your cup of tea, which is perfectly fine. But to just write it off as "dumb" or "bad" just like that is a little upsetting. Of course its not a personal attack against fans of the series and I didn't take it as such, however, I did have a bit of a visceral reaction to how dismissive you were of it.

      The ME3 ending was kind of the only downside to the game for me. And I didn't think it was that bad? A little disappointing, sure, but not riot-worthy.

      I guess it has to do with expectations; I played ME3 in 2014, having heard all this "the ending sucks the ending sucks" and it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected from all that shit.

      I didn't get how he said he didn't like how all the quests in Fallout 4 were the same when you boil it down to its very basics but he did like Mass effect 1 and how well it holds up, you literally see the same template of rooms several dozen times when exploring planets.

    Honestly, I'm with Lawrence about Fallout 4. It was basically a dick stroking simulator where problems were solved with bullets pretty much exclusively ... which isn't really what I want from Fallout.

    I half agree with Bruce about Mass Effect being dumb. The main story in the Mass Effect series was kind of generic and not that interesting. What kept me playing were the stories of your team because their individual stories were much more interesting than the plot of the game.

      I haven't played Knights of the Old Republic or Jade Empire, but from what I've heard that's basically Bioware in a nutshell.

      Wow I came here to say this. I think a big reason for the outrage over the ME3 was that it was a generic ending to a generic main plot. You get so caught up in your squadmates stories that the ridiculous concept of the reapers doesn't seem so outlandish. The Citadel DLC was always the real ending to ME3 for me.

    • DarkTempler7 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I get that with Dragon Age. I loved interacting with the party members in 2 so much that I didn't care if the 3rd act was a little disjoined from the rest of the game.

      I really enjoy BioWare games but their main plots need to improve. DA: Inquisition felt like fantasy ME3 to me but I still enjoyed it though. Also, I didn't mind the ME3 ending because the game was like ending after ending. I never got around to the Citadel DLC but I only heard good things about it.

    I love the Mass Effect series, they're probably my favourite games (so I'm obviously a bit biased here) but sorry Bruce, I think it's fucking idiotic to call a game series dumb if you've never played any of them.


    I can accept that other people might not like the games and have some legitimate complaints, like Lawrence (Although, there was melee in all three games. I agree with the thermal clips though).


    It's ridiculous to just completely dismiss games without having played them before.

      They had an in-universe reason for the thermal clips in a codex entry, but it was cut. The reason was that it supposedly increases the rate of fire, somehow.

    • Adonalsium FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Oh no.

      For me, the thermal clips were actually an improvement? I thought the canon reason why you don't reload was cool, sure, but it also just made the firing mechanics kind of a pain. My entire ME2 experience was like "everything I didn't like about ME1 is gone, everything I did like is still there". So ME2 was incredibly enjoyable for me.

    I agree with Lawrence about open world games. I think a game with more choices and ways to play the game would give players the ability to have unique experiences. While I absolutely love the Elder Scrolls, I have always wanted more from the experience. I think the problem with that sort of game and why it will probably never be produced is because there is this need to please everyone. Many people don't want to play something where decisions can drastically affect outcome because gaming for them is something casual. Many people that play games don't want to have to care about what decision to make.


    There is also the group that wants every single experience in the game, in order to feel like they have fully completed the game. This also comes with the stigma that if you don't play all the way through every decision and option, you have not officially completed the game. If every decision caused a different experience those kinds of players would be hard-pressed to complete every possible outcome.


    It's hard to find a happy medium in the gaming world, and I guess what the developers have created sells, and sells well, so they continue the trend. I will of course always probably enjoy open world games regardless, since I am fond of them, but I do wish there was the opportunity to individualize the experience and create decisions with more dramatic affects to the game.

    This might just be a personal preference, but I really like the way these pod casts run, it has a "home made" quality that the RT pod-cast doesn't have to me. For instance just having the little bit of intro where Lawrence discusses the game their going to play. I listen to every podcast that RT produces, and I like them all differently for their own aestetics, to me Dude Soups is that it feels like you could just be sat off to the side as one of the guys.
