http://fallout.gamepedia.com/Vault_jumpsuit and the full developer diary can be found here, it's a really interesting read. I hope we get a developer diary for Fallout 4, I'm interested to learn more about the weapons http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/co...ign.163925462/
An interesting read, indeed.
Honestly, I've never perceived the texture to look like denim. I'm wondering if this was something corrected with the Hi Res textures? (never got to play with them) I'm seeing a lot of pics on Google that do in fact look like demin seams, and they look a lot sharper in detail.
I guess my biggest misconception is that the original suits from F1 & 2 appear to be a tight leather, as you mentioned in your blog. I've never read anywhere that the "Fallout 1" suits and the "Fallout 3" suits were different, so just assumed it was leather. And like you mentioned earlier, lots of people have made that connection as well.
But I've taken this discussion wayyyyy off topic. After watching the trailer another 20 or so times, I'm really excited for the game. I secured some tickets to the Bethesda E3 event in Sydney, i'd probably faint if we get to see some gameplay and find out more about the story. Fingers crossed!
So how about that climate system? Finally a Fallout game with dynamic weather (rain, anyway) and atmosphere.
I just preordered my copy, no sign of a special edition yet but if one pops up i'll upgrade. Not release date yet either but they're doing stuff at E3 in a few weeks. A little off topic but here's a guy who writes songs inspired by games and even got one as the end of Wasteland 2:
check out his other stuff too, his song based on Deus Ex: human revolution fits the game really well. Kinda hope they get him to do a song for the next Deus ex game

Bethesda never changes!.
There's an interesting theory rolling around that I actually quite like. The vault dweller you play actually comes from the pre-war era and the opening moments of the game (post character creation if there is one) takes place before the bombs fell. Some details that support this. The trailer has been boasted by Bethesda as using in-game graphics. If this is true, than everything we see pre-war are actual in-game assets. And any Fallout fan out there would know that every vault has a different purpose in experimenting on how humanity would cope with post-war scenarios. Having vault 111 be full of pre-war civilians woken up centuries later would be a unique twist on an already game changing twist from Fallout 2.
So do you think the PC will speak this time? After playing Mass Effect, the mute protagonist seems old fashioned. If that is Ron Pearlman, it'd be great to have hime voice your male character. And get somebody equally talented for the female (but not Jen Hale - she's Shep).
The PC at the end sounds like Troy Baker. Ron Perlman is the one doing the narration on the radio and there are rumors that he has his own character.
I think they probably just had Pearlman do the trailer since he was already there recording stuff. I wonder what other celebs they'll get though. Fallout 3 had Liam Neeson and Malcolm McDowell and New Vegas had a few stars in it too. Wish they could get some of the actors from the original 2 games back for parts. Be amusing to find a roaming Junktown vendor who is related to Killian and voiced by Richard Dean Anderson or another BOS soldier voiced by Richard Moll.
I know this is going to be an unpopular sentiment but, gosh, I hope that this game does not have all of the factions and weapons modifier attributes that were introduced with New Vegas. Fallout 3 was the first game I played in this series and it is probably my favorite game of all-time. While it had an amazing amount of depth, it's still retained a bit of simplicity as far as actual gameplay, and I really did not enjoy New Vegas because of all of the additional factions and similar mechanics. - if I wanted that much complexity, I'd buy a couple of d20, a sheaf of paper and a scientific calculator and play Advanced D&D.
But I know that many other people liked them as they hearkened back to the earlier Fallout games, so I assume they will be back in the new one.
I just noticed a few things: 1) bethesda actually took the time to make the leaves on the trees fall colored to match the time of year in the flashback, for a trailer most companies would have fudged it. 2) in the flashback there's a book on the nursery floor that looks a lot like the book you use to set up your character in Fallout 3. Probably just an easter egg like the comic books/magazines next to the armor in the garage.
