hadn't played it yet, and was waiting. However, I broke down, got, "Fallout 4," when there was a good deal on it and have played it more than I probably should have off-and-on over the last few weeks. Yup, I'm obsessed with another game and my wife has long since grown tired of hearing all the never-ending gunfire that occurs when Preston Garvey isn't harassing me to help a settlement.
After a good chunk of time invested I've done some of the earlier main quests, a chunk of assorted side quests, and built some settlements. I still haven't discovered the faction known as, "The Railroad," but have done a decent amount of exploring, leveling-up, and modifying my weapons. Before I discuss all that I like let's address the less-positive things, however.
You can be someone in this game who shoots their guns a lot, or runs up and smacks people whilst occasionally switching to guns for the enemies too high-up to hit, that's about it. Then of course there are the bugs, the delightful bugs. Some make the game suddenly crash on you (it has happened to me enough I am saving even more obsessively than usual) and others just make everything look extra funny. They are an annoyance, but with any, "Fallout," or, "Skyrim," game from Bethesda bugs are to be expected and hopefully eventually patched. Still, despite all this there is some fun stuff too! That brings us to...
I also enjoy my companions, with the assortment I've met proving to generally be good company, and more useful than annoying--something previous games would sometimes lack. I don't want to spoil the story too much as it has some interesting twists and turns, but I will say it cleverly makes you engage in some tough decisions later on in the game that carry actual consequences and, "Lock-off," other quests from certain factions, as it were. Another element I quite adore is how I can modify my weapons, clothes, and suits of Power Armor. Speaking of that famous getup, in previous games the Power Armor was just that--some extra armor--in this game it is like a walking vehicle you hop in and power with fusion cores you find scattered across the land. You can tweak the features as well as give it a spiffy paint job (if you find magazines with directions to do so) and it comes in handy during the more difficult fights you may face. The huge amount of customization options within the game really help give it more of a personal touch, with everyone able to make their own snazzy settlement, weapon, or suit of Power Armor.
Not Too Shabby
Even though the game isn't as full of depth as past titles in the series, it still is some good fun and has stolen a great deal of hours from me. I continue to be a big fan of the, "Fallout," games and even if this 4th one is more of an action-type game than previous ones, I still adore it. Plus, whenever I want to do my stat-heavy gaming like in the old-school, "Fallout," games, I always have, "Wasteland 2." Now I'm eager to continue exploring, and seeing what future downloadable content might hold!
