Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh Fallout 4 is coming out on November 10th.
Bethesda made the announcement themselves:

I have been waiting for this game since the 4th time I beat New Vegas. I’ve avoided pretty much all spoilers, all previews, and all everythings since the original teaser where it was revealed, sigh, that the main protagonist is using a voice actor rather than allowing the player to fill in the blanks. I’ve reconciled myself to that, though.
The main thing that I am wondering is if the plan is to follow in the footsteps of Fallout 3 and have something approaching a 4-Color approach to morality (Megaton vs. Tenpenny Tower, for example) or a somewhat more conflicted attitude toward competing prior assumptions with regards to morality (Mr. House vs. the NCR vs. Yes Man/Protagonist vs. Caesar had some seriously different priors going on… and there was a serious argument to be made for any and all of those four endings (depending on your priors, of course)).
I suppose that the main thing that I am hoping is that, once again, I get around 80+ hours of gameplay out of something that I eventually discover is only the tutorial for the real game that Obsidian will be putting out using the same engine.
But at that point I’m looking forward to the sequel to a game I haven’t even played yet and that’s no way to live.
So… what are you playing?
