    Hey great work Rajun, its always tough to make something from very little information but you still did splendid. Would be very cool if in one of the future games we get a better insight into the China side of things and maybe even some more information on these Hei Gui suits. Great work!

    Thanks.  You know, that's an interesting talk point.  As the world becomes more "global" and we know video games are played world wide, would a Fallout taking place outside of the US be a viable game in the international market and would it be viable in America?  I mean if people in Japan and China can play Fallout 4 taking place in Boston and still enjoy the game, wouldn't it be the same that we could play Fallout: Moscow and enjoy the scenery just the same?  Granted the music may need tweaking to fit the locale but I love the architecture of Russia (the onion top buildings) or Fallout Europe with old castles and stuff.  I think I could still enjoy the game from that perspective even if the game were not taking place in the US. 

    "Fallout: Moscow" -- I think you mean the Metro series ;)

    I think the problem is that you have to find another country with such a distinctive, easily-imitated culture as 50's America. There are other examples, but it would definitely be something unusual for the series.

    Well, every country had a culture in the 50's when they were around.  Russia, Japan, China, and while they may be unusual to "us" (ie American's) don't you think the culture they used to portray America was equally odd to players of the game from other countries?  Yet they adapted and accepted the game.

    I didn't mean that there wasn't a 50's culture in every country, but you are right about foreign players still enjoying the game. I can imagine certain countries for sure.

    I came across some new data this weekend that I felt might tie in to some of the discussion in my initial article so I've amended it accordingly.
