PostSubject: Small Details You Never Noticed Until Recently?   Mon Mar 05, 2018 6:20 am

Are there any small details you noticed recently when playing any of the Fallout games?

One detail I noticed was when I walked across the bridge from Novac. I always noticed this dead raider corpse at the end of the bridge. Further down the road to Nelson, I would see two dead Legion bodies. I always scratched my head as to why they would be there, and just today I found out the reason.

You see, the reason is pretty simple. The raider and two Legionnaires were shot by either Manny or Boone. Why? Because it's their job to snipe anything that remotely looks like trouble (eg: Raiders and Legion). This was a very nice detail by Obsidian.

Another detail I noticed is the melee weapon, shishkebab. Have you ever paid close attention to what the person using it is wearing on their hand when holding it? Neither have I. Well when playing around with it, I notice my courier wearing an oven mitt on the hand holding the weapon. I thought "Huh? Well, that's weird." and unequipped the shishkebab in curiosity. I re-equipped the weapon and noticed the detail. It makes sense really. That thing has got to be blistering hot.







Really nice detail by Bethesda since they were ones who originally made the concept of the weapon.

I never noticed until recently that the bomb in Megaton is bearing the Vault-Tec logo !

Spoiler:
 

I've heard here and there that a Fallout movie was once being made and the it would reveal that Vault-Tec bombed both the US and China... This little logo and the fact that Megaton's bomb is based on a american bomb seem to confirm it

That’s an interesting plot twist. I’d imagine they would have had a plan to survive somewhere. They could make an interesting enemy faction in a future game. Somewhere in between institute and enclave maybe.

As for me, during my current fallout 4 playthrough, I actually took time to read the vault computers and there’s an interesting timeline of events from when the bombs first fell until the staff begins to realize that they had been duped by vault tec. This whole time I’d thought the vault died out because there were issues with the power, which is partially true, but I never realized that the biggest reason was the mutiny due to lack of information flowing from the vault’s leadership combined with panic about the immediate future.

This may sound stupid, but Inside James Office, when you leave Vault 101 in the "ESCAPE" mission is a frame of the revelations bible verse 21:6. It's a nice detail that he has it on it's own, but On my livestream, when I passed through the office in order to collect the bobblehead, I noticed you could unlock the frame. Inside? 300 caps, a schematic, and a holotape of him narrating his feelings of losing his wife while he's left to raise you, the protaganist
I'm not sure if this is in this vanilla game, if this is because my game is modded, or what.

There is a fingerprint on pip-boy 3000 if you look closely. I never noticed it until last summer.

I’ll definitely be checking the next time I play.

When I played again to Fallout 3, I realised that the Lone Wanderer is 19 yo. This could be depressing for a young vault dweller to kills tons of people, witness tons of murder (inclunding his dad's death) and being alone.

Small, but can be stupid on my side. I just noticed that radscorpions hiss whenever it attacks you. It hisses like a cat/snake whatever. Its fucking creepy man.

I don't know if this detail was obvious,  i'm playing Fallout 3 and recently i noted in that baseball place, that there was two raiders, both with baseball bats, and one of them running trough the 4 bases, i mean i've been there before on other plathroughs, but this time i crouch to see what the raiders were doing.

I didn't realize that there was a house near Bedford Station and that there was a skeleton near Thicket Excavations.

@ElMaldito I've seen that on Youtube. I have never noticed that either.

A video showcasing the encounter for anyone wondering.


That is one thing I like about Bethesda's way of portraying raiders. They go out of their way to give a lot of them personality by making small scenes like this. I wished the Fiends had small details like this.

It's not a "Bethesda thing" look at the good ol' Fallout 1 and 2, they had a shitton of references and random encounters. 

I'm gonna share some thoughts here so...

At least the fiends had a backstory, and it's up to you if you want to maul 'em all, to bethesda the raiders are just things that you have to shoot at, just look at Fallout 4(obviously they tried to compensate with nuka world) besides, think about what New Vegas could had been if it had the same time of development as 3, of course Fallout 3 has that such of details, it was polished and finished without rush.

@ElMaldito I see your point. I too agree that Obsidian would've likely tried to put the same amount of detail for the raider gangs. The cut content with the fiend honchos highly suggest that the fiends were likely to have a bigger role in the game and be an actual faction.
