Re: Fallout 4

The rumor seems to be that Sony wanted Bethesda to QA and validate all user mods before release because of instability issues that can occur on XBox One.

Re: Fallout 4

If that's true, I understand Sony's position, but would prefer it to be a user-beware kind of situation when installing mods. It's a bummer, because I was looking forward to the mods.

Yeah, there's certainly warnings about user based content. It's also impossible to properly QA and validate every single mod submission, so I understand Bethesda's position too. I'd think people would be smart enough not to blame Sony for instability.

For fans of The Silver Shroud, make sure that you bring the outfit with you to Nuka World and equip it in the Western-themed section of the park.

Re: Fallout 4

I haven't played Fallout 4 since it was released and I completed the main story, 100 hrs or so of play time.

Since I got the digital deluxe edition, all the DLC has been waiting for me in Xbox, and I finally decided to take a look. I didn't check anything about them. No backstory, nothing. I actually decided to start with what I considered one of my old open tasks... and it ended up being Far Harbor.

Fast forward 20 hours... I'm still at the island, probably not close to finish the main story. And I'm loving the story! That's some great DLC.

Re: Fallout 4

One that I need to go back to....I didn't play any of the previous Fallout games and got this months ago when it hit $29. I still have about 30%= of the area on the map to see and also go back to other places. One of the pre-reviews I read said even after "400 Hours"...the Devs were finding new stuff they didn't even know about. I love the huge open sandbox which is pretty much..."here's the key...do what you want and have fun". Some of the Towns & Cities you can almost spend several days alone in. And the side characters are such fun with all their stories and play. I can see why it got 9's and above....

Re: Fallout 4

I got this a little while ago when it was on sale for $20 digital. I really do like it, but even on easy mode, this game is just kicking my ass. And frustrating as hell.

I'm just constantly dying, and it isn't fun. In one instance I was just walking to a quest, and it seems like I randomly just stepped on a landmine in the woods, because i just blew up. No warning, no nothing.

Or I'll peek my head into a building to see if there's anything in there, and instantly be swarmed by 6 ghouls at once and die.

I don't know, it seems like I'm just missing something. For a world with so much stuff all over the place, it seems weird to have to "stick to the road or die instantly". Maybe I just suck

I felt the same. I dig the open world and it's gameplay, but it stopped being fun (pretty early on) solely due to the difficulty. In these types of games, I like to explore and find all sorts of shit on my own, but the difficulty and instant deaths in F4 prevented that for me. Which is weird, because that was never an issue in their Elder Scroll games.

Re: Fallout 4

The trick to staying alive in Fallout 4 is....

Use your "Friend/Companion"...let them deal the most, attract and take on the enemies while you stay behind them.

Upgrade Armor and pay attention to their perks....like some armor has bonus against ghouls. Armor is your best friend or at least to me it is.

And early on collect and sell any and everything you can so you can buy and trade for better gear. And get you 'benches" up to help make better stuff

...and a tip on the ghouls.....shoot their leg(s)....they can't attack if they don't have a leg and get a easy head shot for extra points

Re: Fallout 4

Yeah, I did all that, and while it would get me through some hostiles here and there, I still died a ton, enough to keep it from being fun. In fact, doing all that extra work you detail and still dying a lot, makes it even worse, as like I said, I didn't have to do any of that shit in Skyrim to stay alive.

Re: Fallout 4

Sorry to hear your troubles. I really need to get back into this. Where are you at in the game? I do know early on I went to a few places and got my butt kicked and didn't return until I got better gear and better guns.

As far as companions early on Dogmeat is still good reliable and will protect you. Codsworth is great with his melee and flamethrower and has the second highest strength only behind Strong plus he has high endurance. But Cait is really good overall with a shotgun and a good set of armor. If you have Strong, the Super Mutant it's even better. Equip him with Super Mutant Armor and a heavy melee weapon and he'll take care of everything

Re: Fallout 4

Re: Fallout 4

Like in previous games, it doesn't matter.

I had already finished the game when I played Far Harbor, and based on my decisions I hoped to get more friendlines from some group, but I don't think it mattered. (Or was the opposite? to receive more opposition? I don't remember).

Have fun! It's a really good DLC.

Re: Fallout 4

WOW!! Far Harbor for me is more fun than the main quest; which I have now given up on to finish Far Harbor. Really enjoying this DLC and it has breathed new life into the game for me. Spent most of the weekend playing it.

Re: Fallout 4

I was at Best Buy today and had to do a double take when I noticed that they had a Pip Boy edition of the game on the bottom shelf. It must have been put out recently because I never noticed it before. The crazy thing was they still wanted $120 for it

Re: Fallout 4

I let someone barrow my Fallout 4 copy thinking they play it for a week and give it back...Nope. They said if they had known more about the game they would've got it long ago....it's one of their favorites. I should've stayed with this and Ghost Recon instead of venturing out with other games...and come fall I have no idea what I'll do with SW Battlefront 2 and want both Middle Earth: Shadow of War and Wolfenstein: New Colossus.

And I failed that stupid Ship Mission at the very end and didn't get the cannon and hope I can still go back to a early save point and re-do it...which it seems is possible. One heck of a game though.
