    "a video game about a grizzled German Shepherd who learns how to love" awwwww

    Wish they would announce PC requirements already :(

    So pretty much it was Fallout 4/ Bethesda presents E3 2015.

      A few former colleagues of mine were at E3 this year and said Bethesda just smashed it out of the ballpark, their conference overshadowed pretty much everything else there. Seems like online sentiment concurs.

    The thing with Fallout 4 is that I don't want, nor need, to watch anything more about it other than that first release announcement trailer. There's simply nothing I want, or need, to know about it. It's going to be another Fallout game.. that's all I need to know.

    However, with games like No Man's Sky, I could watch videos for hours about the game because there's still so much unknown about it.
