Fallout 4 - Smart Improvements and Busy Work 0

With any of Bethesda's open world RPGs, the biggest challenge comes from wondering where to even begin. Fallout 4 is no different. Like its predecessors, it depicts a massive post-apocalyptic world where the ruins of an uber-patriotic alternate history America are waiting to be unearthed. Its retro-futuristic atmosphere still holds strong, binding together the time tested formula of exploration, loot, character development, and player choice. With these elements intact, Fallout 4 is essentially...

A Fallout newcomer's take on the most recent addition. 0

The hype cycle of Fallout 4 has been one of the most unique in recent memory. In a landscape where games will be announced and then appear at E3 for 3 years straight, Fallout was announced a month before E3 and then released a mere five months later to the excitement of seemingly everyone. Everyone except me. My history with Bethesda games is as follows; Dishonored, which they only published, and about 25 minutes of Fallout 3. Other than that, I had no experience with the series, so I came to t...

Fallout 4: Maybe only a half generation leap? 6

The first time I entered a building in Dragon Age: Inquisition was when I determined that the current generation had finally arrived. Not because it looked pretty (it did) or because it played in a novel way (it didn’t), but because I did not have to see a load screen at all. This small thing in an otherwise massive game made me incredibly excited for the power of the current consoles and how that would benefit gameplay design. Sure, when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launched there were ...

Bethesda games, Bethesda games never change 0

It’s been awhile since we last visited post-apocalyptic America’s wasteland, but Fallout 4 is finally among us, and it’s already made a significant splash within the gaming community. For the past month, the game has infiltrated the Reddit front-page on a daily basis and has easily become the biggest release of 2015. I have personally spent dozens of hours wandering the streets of destroyed Boston, and enjoyed every second I spent with it. However, beneath the sheer hours of t...

Two steps forward one big step backward. 0

Fallout 4 is better than it's predecessors and even other Bethesda RPGs in a lot of ways, but in others, it's far weaker. Let me elaborate. Fallout 4 takes a more streamlined approach to the point where it feels like just as much a shooter as it is an RPG if not more. This is because it has a much larger emphasis on combat than the titles that came before it and I honestly see that as a good thing.The combat in Fallout 3 and New Vegas was very sloppy and left a lot to be desired. Unless you use...

Fallout 4 Review 0

In many ways Fallout 4 feels like coming home. While the wasteland in Fallout 4 is a different one to Fallout 3 and New Vegas the world is instantly familiar. The world of Fallout is a hostile, unforgiving, unwelcoming and miserable place. Filled with desperate people, super mutants and killer robots, the future created by a global nuclear war is a bleak one and yet it is one I love spending time within.While the open world of Fallout 4 may not be the largest it is one of the most densely popula...

Fallout 4 - A beautiful world that highlights Bethesda's lack of attention to story 0

Being a fan of Bethesda's first-person Fallout games, I had been looking forward to Fallout 4 since the first announcement. I was eager to see what Bethesda would do with a new console generation and more refined engine. What resulted is a better Fallout experience that only highlights the increasing shortcomings in the Bethesda development.Fallout 4 is a first-person shooter set in a post apocalyptic world. Extending on the Washington DC setting of Fallout 3 and Las Vegas of Fallout New Vegas, ...

Fallout 4 Review 0

Welcome back to the wasteland, vault-dweller.There’s a unique brand of excitement that follows the announcement of an open world Bethesda game. Sure, they launch with more bugs than there are in the Amazon, but no other game matches the level of freedom and intricacy Skyrim or Fallout 3 boast. Almost every item can be taken. Almost every character can be killed. They’re worlds with seemingly endless possibilities. Fallout 4 checks all the boxes for what to expect from a Bethesda open...

Just more Fallout, along with the good and bad that comes with more Fallout. 0

Bethesda Game Studios has a great track record, regarded as one of the more beloved game developers out there. The studio is know for the contagiously successful Elder Scrolls series and Fallout series. Fallout 4 is another entry into the Fallout series, as you may have guessed! It really can just be described as that, another Fallout game. The latest Fallout taking place this time in the Commonwealth of the Boston area, has all in all some improvements, but still remarkably similar to the Capi...

Fallout 4 scratches me where I itch. 0

I know a lot of people dislike this game, and I'm sure they have their reasons. However, I played it through to completion a couple of years ago on the PS4 and enjoyed it fine.I am currently having another go at it on the Xbox One X with all the DLC (and patches, presumably), and it's a fantastic experience. Gorgeous game, with an immense amount of stuff to do. I'm 80 hours in and haven't even gone to Diamond City yet. The settlement building aspect doesn't appeal to me, but I ignore it. Just w...

Fallout 4: Automatron DLC Review 0

Fallout 4’s first DLC, Automatron, added the new cool and interesting feature of building a robot, however on the grand scheme of things, left a bad taste in my mouth for the feature of Fallout DLC and Bethesda DLC in general.The main story revolves around someone named the Mechanist, a person who’s been controlling some of those deadly robots around the Commonwealth. Your character learns of these robots through a caravan who got attacked by the robots. The sole surviving robot, Ad...

Fallout 4 0

Fallout 4 is a Bethesda Studios game. I personally don't mind what that means. Yes it has it's glitches and bugs along with NPCS getting in my way and sometimes not responding to quest related moments.But I loved Almost every minute of the hundred or so hours spent in Bethesda Studios latest gem of a game.It seems like a fair assumption to say I've been witness to an overwhelming amount of content in this game ,but true to form from Bethesda I still have unfinished quests and paths I missed enti...

Fallout 4 Review 0

Story-The beginning is set before the bombs fell. and i wish that was explored more. But the story itself is a major improvement over Fallout 3 but New Vegas is still better told storyFactions- One of the nice things about this game is that the brought back the faction system from New Vegas and they are less black and white and more shades of gray.Companions- They can get away but they are fun, have interesting stories, and can't dieCombat-Yay! It feels like a shooter this time.Ending-Fallout Ne...

Fallout 4: Far Harbor DLC Review (Xbox One) 0

Fallout 4’s Far Harbor DLC actually delivers what we as Bethesda fans would expect from a Bethesda DLC. Far Harbor adds an entirely new location with a whole lot of new locations, interesting and better-written quests, and characters to explore. So far, this is the best DLC we have seen for Fallout 4.The DLC starts you with a missing person case in the Commonwealth. Ellie of the Valentine Detective Agency informs you that a family has lost their daughter and are asking for help. Once you ...
