I've heard from the grapevine that you are stuck with a male main character because of voice acting. I seriously hope this is false or they think to rectify it.

That'd be a serious decrease in character customizeability, something which has been a key feature of the fallout series from the beginning . .
And as such, i do hope that you are wrong about it, but i would not put it past them <.<

Isn't that why the main character from a lot of games never speaks (or at least is not voice acted)? So you can be whoever you want: any gender, ethnicity, have any accent, etc.? It seems strange to spend the extra effort (and time and money) to reduce freedom. Especially in a first person game that is supposed to get you invested in being the character.

That is precisely why. It seems an odd choice for both Fallout and Bethesda, both of which have long since held customization of the character in high regard.

It seems even odder to instantly lend credence to rumours that appear on day 1, after the only media we have seen is a single video with a man at the end.
Let me remind you, that all the promotional material for the canon vault dweller always made them male before. This did not limit your character creation options.

There is SOME credence to it, but I'm just hoping that it is wrong. Current theories are that said main character is actually from pre-war and that his vault's schtick was cryogenic freezing. A neat theory I have to admit. This comes from the fact that the voice of a pre-war character matches the character at the end of the trailer. Which would again, make some sense as he's searching through the ruin of his old house. (other crazy theories involve being an android since we're supposed to deal with MIT and the Commonwealth). I'm mostly curious to see if we see the game before the end of the year.

appearantly, that rumor is part of a bigger infodump that so far has been pretty much correct.
it was leaked by a disgruntled employee after she was fired for some reason.

further information says it's only for the main storyline quest and after that is done it won't be the case anymore.
and it supposedly won't be important for the DLCs to follow either . .

i am still not sure how to feel about this . .

if i remember correctly (highly unprobable), fallout was the first CRPG that allowed you to MAKE and play a female character . .

So, let me get this right. There is this ominous "info dump" (not sourced here, so far), that a "disgruntled" employee leaked.
It is not inconceivable that some truths are mixed with incomplete information and / or outright lies then, isn't it? After all, that mysterious employee is not gruntled anymore and has an interest in smearing their former employer.

Just sayin': It's a bit early to proclaim the sky falling.

Oh by the way:
there's a steam sale for the entire fallout franchise this weekend.
so if you haven't, look into buying some of the fallout stuff.

From what I heard, the part about not being able to play a woman is made-up bullshit.

Does it really matter? It may be that I'm coming at it from a different place, yes it is a step backwards in customization, but as long as the game play is good I can't get that worked up about it.

Mind you, I'm not crying "sexism" or anything ridiculous like that. It just is something that goes against the grain of both the company and the series. If I want to play a game with a voiced character and railroaded storyline, I could go listen to Cary Elwes snark lines at me all day in A Bard's Tale. Which I might do, it was a good game.

It might not change but sometimes it rises to spectacular new heights.

I'll settle for playing Fallout Shelter in the mean time.

I am curious why the "future 1950's with some cowboys" idea behind Fallout doesn't get the same flak as the "future 1980's with magic" that Shadowrun gets. At least I haven't read any arguments that all of the books and magazines around the world in Fallout should be replaced with ebook readers because it's the future and we already have them.

Then again, I'll accept pretty much anything in fiction, as long as it stays internally consistent.
