Despite some annoying glitches, "Fallout 4" is of this year's greatest video game experiences, columnist Jake Magee writes.
i waited seven long years for this game,loving every second...happy it's here at last.
Didn't you play New Vegas?
i did,but it wasn't the same..i liked it but liked the setting for 3 better
I love it when the physics go wrong. I watched a box tumbling end over end at high speed in a basement last night. Very entertaining.
Every second is a blast. Im playing right now... typing this from the toilet :P
Haven't picked up f4 yet. Can you still drink from toilets to quench le thirst?
Alot of them are broken and have no visible water but some do so yes :3
Agreed. Game is awesome, just haven't had much chance to play it yet. Also got Divinity and Wasteland 2 on the go plus Bloodborne expansion next week. Need more time.
I'm having a weird experience with Fallout 4. First 30 hours was good, then i started to get really pissy about horrible dialogue wheel, bad copy/paste faction missions, overall poor quest desing and new leveling system (your SPECIAL's don't matter, you can have everything in the game pretty much). Then i dropped doing faction missions and started going forward with main quest line. Suddenly really good and fun quests started popping. Then i gave base crafting a chance and it's a ton of fun. Most of my money now is going towards buying shipments of wood and steel etc. Now i'm loving it as it is. I like New Vegas more, but Fallout 4 is different kind of good.
Yeah my only true irk so far is the quests for the minutemen settlements and brotherhood of steel constantly repeating. Should be more like Fallout 3 in that aspect where once you're done then you're done. I understand gathering certain items for caps but the whole settlement saving quests are bugging me.
I've been having a hard time getting in to this one. It feels dated. Witcher 3 beat this game on just about every possible level for me.
I agree, Witcher 3 is a better RPG.
If you but more importance in storytelling, dialogue, characters, voice-acting and quests, than action and mediocre looting. Witcher 3 is a better game. More varied quests with FAR more attention to detail (not just go to X place and kill everyone, there's quests where you go to a wedding with a ghost etc. non-action quests), Geralt's voice commentary even in smaller and simpler quests, a lot of interesting characters and grey characters (you want to kill some people as soon as game gives you a chance, only to find out at the end of the quest line that you feel bad/sorry for them), and there's even grey quests where you have to make decisions that have options with both good and bad outcomings. It's fun when game makes you feel helpless in a quest where you have to make a hard decision, when you are used to RPG's with "Im the second coming of Jesus, son of god" or "I'm the spawn of Satan, root of all evil" paths. Just pretty much everything that makes a good RPG, Witcher 3 does it better than Fallout 4 or any other RPG of recent years.
I wouldn't call it a gaming triumph since there isn't really anything spectacular about the game .. Very similar to fallout 3 but i guess that's good
