They made a lot of things better, but they made a lot of things worse. Trouble is, the things they made worse were the epitome of Fallout... so it's become a very general FPS instead of a "fallout".

Fallout5:
Re-do perks/ranks like FO3/NV.
Re-make the 'lone warrior' somebody without a pre-written script/personality.
Re-do conversations.

Make scrapping/building more user friendly or at least a better walk-through.

Keep shooting/vats (personally I liked the old vats, but I understand how the new way would be preferable to most).


Still a good game. Just not a Fallout.

I had no idea VATS was Q until maybe 10 hours in..

Steam in-game doesn't work for me half the time. Anyone else had problems?

No pre-written personality. So basically remove your spouse and child from the story?

I forgot grenades were a thing. Pretty bad. No different buttons cause controllers?

Re-do it so you're not clearly the white knight coming to save people.
One of the cool things about fallout 3 was running through the game as the +100 guy with the "angel" perks (or whatever the fuck that was called). Then also running it as the "devil" and killing people and not just for shits after a save only to re-load.

The end result of the plot can be "good" but with FO4, it's clear you can ONLY be the good guy.

I never do say no and kill people on my first playthrough, didn't know.

Light spoiler. Maybe. Some people are crazy about that stuff.
Spoiler (highlight to read):
There are multiple endings and they did seem to force everything to be an in-between option.

The only gripe I have with it is you can clearly see the creeping console influence in the menus and navigation, which displeases me on PC.

And there we have it. After Skyrim I'm not really surprised. I picked up Borderlands P-S on sale instead.

Who actually bought any Borderlands for the vehicle gameplay? Can't say whether or not the increased traction helps or makes it worse.

Yeah. It's just good enough for the old schooly graphics to pass. But it's sort of getting tangential to Fallout 4.

quick question, how does collecting bobble heads affect you? it raises your stat point in that bobble head but can't you just do that with a level now anyway?

in past games I would avoid picking them up until a very late level because it was more beneficial then. is it all moot now? does picking them up at level 2 give you the same result as picking them up at level 200?

email ur reply back asap

I know the skills have beneficial unique perks for each one you find. For instance, I just found the Repair one that makes fusion cores last 10% longer.

On that note, I've again started using my Fallout strat of using the shittiest weapons/ammo far longer than is prudent. Currently I've barely used the power armor at all because I'm irrationally afraid of "wasting" my fusion cores.

Your CPU barely beats minimum requirements.

With an i7-2600K and a GTX 760, I don't meet the recommended settings. Been a long time in coming, considering I built this computer to run Space Marine. I suppose I should hold off on Fallout 4 for that reason, if nothing else.

Saw that after I looked at em but I never had any problem until those crashes 50 hours in caused by a quest. I ran it on max-ultra/1440p for the first 20 hours or so. Was even fine when i had 100 raiders go up against 15 mirelurk queens. Have been fine since too.

I did blow dust off my case today. Front was covered.

Definitely caused by something not cpu. If I walk to far in my base it crashes.
