Yay! Fallout!

Aaaaaand it happened again. I'm turning every single rock and sweeping houses completely to find every single useful and useless item there is to be found.

Have you guys installed this?

I had some odd issues with the game like no hitboxes for items and when the alarm came on the front door didn't open up. Had to load a previous save. Anyone else have problems?

One other thing is the damn dog controls keep coming up when looting for stuff. Annoying.

The companion app is really neat for a secondary map view, I think.

It's a shame you can't access your data if you're not connected to your home network and the PC. Would do some serious procrastinating at work

ed. No wait! You can access the last data in offline mode! Wooooo! Up yours whiny customers and your compuutar pröblems!

Little bit pissed off. Decided to buy the game because I had an evening free today, went to ye olde vidja game shoppe for the first time in forever because since Steam introduced separate currencies and put on the NZ tax to all games it hasn't been particularly good value for money and also I didn't want to fuck around downloading. Put in the DVD in to install, found out it only had about a fifth of the necessary files and had to download 20GB anyway. So that left a sour taste in my mouth.

I mean if everything's going to be a digital download then fine, let us know and I'll factor my shitty Internet service into things. But if you go to the trouble of designing nice packaging and putting a disk together and making people go to a physical retailer to buy it and bring it home, how about putting the fucking game with it.

Tru dat. I did the pre-installation earlier this week and yesterday it still downloaded 24GB of stuff. Oh, well...

I bought it from http://www.g2play.net/ in june. Got it almost for half the price they demand on Steam now.

That was the last straw but the game is bad too.

Of 3, NV, and 4, this one is the worst. It is so bad because the RPG aspects of the game have either been stripped away or dumbed down.

They removed the skill numbers and replaced it with a graduated perk system. So you can't build and tweak a uniquely skilled player. They also changed the way the dialogue worked. Instead of getting full text of what you will say, you get to choose from 4 response types of

1. Yes
2. No
3. Maybe
4. Sarcasm

You can't pick the sarcasm one because you have no idea whether your character will say a funny joke or something that will really piss off the NPC. And you have to sit through the whole voice acting and can't read ahead and move quickly like before. And the fact that your lines are vocalized mean that your personality and choices are limited. You aren't a unique character anymore but instead square jawed suburbanite.

Save yourself money and get the GOTY version for $25 a year and a half from now.

The Metal Gear Solid V retail DVD only contained the 8 MB Steam installer.
And supposedly no pre-loading was allowed.

Can't deny the dialogue choices have problems. I guess they lost it in favor of a system like Mass Effect but even that has more options and is better at explaining them.
Perk system isn't what I expected but meh.
UI still sucks.

I was happy to pay 47 for it. There are no other games I want currently.

I have $59.99 in my steam wallet I don't know what to do with. Maybe pre-order Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Had fun with human revolution.

It's too bad developers don't do demos anymore. And game reviewers are horribly untrustworthy and unreliable.

Se that's another reason I'm a bit miffed about opting for the physical copy. Could have returned the Steam one if I thought it was shit. Stuck with it now I bought the physical copy. Oh well, hopefully any design flaws will be modded out or patched promptly.

I've already seen a mod that replaces the level up noise with the John Cena theme so we're off to a good start.

I didn't have high expectations.
Some faces look okay ish, others are bad.
Graphics are okay ish from 5m+ away and get terrible up close.
Animation are better than Skyrim which isn't saying much.
Perk screen was poorly implemented.
They don't tell you how to do anything which is annoying. Like how to build a settlement.
Shooting is a lot better than I expected. Not sure what it compares to.

How does it compare to the last Fallout?

I tried replaying Fallout 3 and not using VATS was painful. Only time I consistently used VATS in 4 has been against animals and ghouls.

Closest game I can think of would be Borderlands.
