Yeah we have some new Fallout 4 news here's what I got
Summary I got from another site:
Highlights: Gamespot's video player is still aids.
No new gameplay videos, it's just them talking over the occasional backdrop of cut scenes from the existing trailers and/or Fallout 3 gameplay. Game handles large scale, multi party combat much better than before, especially with VATS.
Skill system appears to be gone, replaced with a perk system that is based around your SPECIAL stats instead. Each point of stat unlocks a different perk, so if you start with ten Strength, for example, you can potentially take even the last Strength based perk right at the start.
Looting corpses is more streamlined, you seem to be able to mouse over them and see their contents, instead of interacting with them like a container.
Radial menu for weapon equips. Hooray for consoles, aids for PC, as always.
Dog will loot stuff for you.
Can shoot off limbs of feral ghouls, including legs, and they will crawl at you like typical zombie game style enemies.
Brotherhood of Steel is confirmed to be a potential friendly faction, mentioned that the player can "call in backup" from friendly factions.
Protagonist will self narrate while walking around the gameworld, similarly to Witcher 3.
Radiation in the game no longer works like in previous games. Instead of taking away from your stats, it now works exactly like it does in Fallout Shelter, where it takes away from your maximum health on your health bar.
Melee has critical hit animations, mentioned was hitting someone in the nuts to knock them down, then bashing their head with a baseball bat while they are on the ground.

I'm really interested in the voiced protagonist, especially now that I know they will comment on things around the world. Everything sounds so fantastic (I'm looking forward to kicking people in the nuts and bashing them with a baseball bat) and I honestly can't wait.
I noticed he said you can call in good factions to back you up so hopefully there will be others and not just the Brotherhood of Steel. Can you imagine if the Boomers were in the game and you could call them in with their plane to bomb the area? That would be badassery at it's best.
I'm loving the idea of shooting off limbs and actually having it affect the creature or person unlucky enough to get in your way. I want to see a ghoul hopping for his life or a Raider with only one arm still trying to fire a two handed gun. So many possibilities and ways to do things. My head might explode from all the directions it's going.
I really hope there will be a way to modify your body as well as your face too. I want to be able to control the weight of my character and the height too. I'd also love to have an option for body modifications at some point. Like if you get in good with the Raiders then you have an option to get tattoos from them etc.
Can you imagine if the Boomers were in the game and you could call them in with their plane to bomb the area? That would be badassery at it's best.
And then whoever the poor unfortunate souls you bombed were, see you walking through the fiery rubble towards them in your shiny power armour, holding a ridiculously massive gun...Wake me when it's november please, I need this game
The voiced protagonist thing actually seems quite interesting now tbh, at first I was a bit 'meh' about it but I'm starting to come around Damn, everything about this game sounds amazing, and gameplay we've seen so far looks just as good, if not better

I hear if you blow the limbs off feral ghouls they just keep coming at you, like shoot off a leg they'll fall to the ground and start crawling around. Which makes me wonder, what happens if you shoot all the limbs off a feral ghoul? Both arms and legs, do they just start like what, flopping at you? Rolling around and try to bite your ankles? Or would like they just be dead at that point? Or would they just lay there and look at you with this 'f*ck you bro' look on their face? You know what, first thing I'm going to do in the game is find out when I get the chance.

I have a feeling when this game drops theirs going to become a new section jsut for player characters lol. People are going to sink so many hours into just one playthrough alone its going to be unreal. But hey im not complaining one bit. over 400 hours into new vegas and i still play it. Ill be set for a long time with this no level cap. Super OP characters away!
