Fallout 4 Has More Dialogue Than Fallout 3 And Skyrim Combined

Fallout 4

Fallout 4 has more lines of dialogue than both Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim combined. The upcoming open-world action game will boast more than 111,000 lines of dialogue, according to a tweet from Bethesda. Apparently, it took many years to finish Fallout 4’s voice recording process, but it has now finally been completed.

It stands to reason that Fallout 4 has so much dialogue since the game’s protagonist speaks throughout the game, unlike in Skyrim and Fallout 3. In fact, Fallout 4 will be the first time an open-world Bethesda game features spoken dialogue for its protagonist. Additionally, the protagonist can be either male or female, which would mean twice as many recordings were needed for the character. Brian Delaney and Courtenay Taylor served as voice actors for the protagonist.

The robotic assistant that makes an appearance at the beginning of the game will also be able to call the player character by a variety of names – Bethesda has said Mr Codsworth’s voice actor Stephen Russel recorded himself saying thousands of popular names, as well as some other, ruder, names that some players like to name their characters.

The enormous amount of dialogue in Fallout 4 may be a result of Xbox One and PS4 games now being sold on BluRay discs, as opposed to Xbox 360 and PS3 games which were sold on DVDs. It grants a significant boost in storage space, which means Bethesda has more room to play with when it comes to things like dialogue. Bethesda has yet to announce just how much storage Fallout 4 will take up, but we can safely assume it’s going to be a lot.

A few days ago, many Fallout fans were disappointed to learn that Erik Todd Dellums, voice actor of Three Dog from Fallout 3, wasn’t included in the Fallout 4 voice recordings.

Fallout 4 releases November 10 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Bethesda promises the game contains no level cap and unlimited play after the completion of the game’s main quest.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
