    Well I for one am in a nice mood today :lol:, so am gonna reserve judgement - I mean, if I was dead I'd have turned in my grave at the announcement of The Witcher series (or something) ...but that turned out, somewhat ok! ..And as one who's read up a little on the Fallout lore, it might be interesting!

    If it won't be full of bugs and glitches, then the show wouldn't be really true to the source material.

    I was thinking of a Fallout TV show just recently. Hope they don't screw it up.

    Hopefully it is the people behind series 1 of Westworld rather than the later efforts.

    That's kind of ironic considering a few years ago IIRC Westworld copied Fallout Shelter yeah? I know two separate divisions and what not but still kind of weird

    It's awesome to hear that it's in the works. Sadly, it's also on Amazon, so...

    Sorry Todd, sorry Jeff - I already have Netflix. You know what that means... :ph34r:

    I hope it is not hyper sexualized or self aware for that matter. I want a dark, bleak, and hopeless dystopian setting like Fallout 1.

    They had the chance to re-release Skyrim and they ruined it

    I really liked amazon show "The boys", I believe they have enough of resources and talent writers to produce a decent TV show.

    Whatever. I've already lost faith in Bethesda to make the Fallout series interesting again. I doubt Amazon can make something worse than Fallout 76's shit show.

    In before PG13 generic blank slate good guy that woke up in a vault with no knowledge of the current setup but knows how it all works vs some unambiguous pantomime bad guys (and only one homogenous faction of them) dragged out for 13/23 episodes (including a few in a single location to save budget) before "it was all a dream"/"but a vision of a possible future", all with some utterly ham fisted message or mash up of 50 (save the gay whales mirelurks from being nuked by impoverished countries ruled by dictators or something, and yes a (strong independent) tiny teenage girl can go hand to hand with power armour encased super mutant as in this universe the Brotherhood of Steel and super mutants teamed up).

    So the mega corporation is making a series that is super anti capitalist??? Bethesda is really a parody of itself, Amazon is just a joke

    Is Fallout anti capitalist?

    I have not played the most of 2 (granted 1 and 2 might as well be a different franchise compared to 3 and beyond) but have a reasonable grounding in the rest at this point.
    I struggle to think of anything that would back that up in either the narratives, mechanics, lore, world at large, factions within it or anything else, never mind something pervasive in all of that.
    There have been nominally communist factions portrayed within it (see battle of anchorage) and they were hardly all downtrodden sweetness and light.

    The caps money system underpins quite a lot of the game, positive outcomes happen playing within it, getting loads of money does not tend to make the game harder to do. You get a few factions working towards the greater good that are less concerned with money but
    Wild excesses, not doing the job you are hired to do, sacrificing lives to get caps and the like might be criticised either in other factions, NPCs, karma and the like but I would say that is more humanist than anything else.
