Re: Fallout 4 Far Harbor dlc thoughts

Here are a couple of minor cons.

1) They introduce a puzzle mechanic to one point in the main quest. If you hate puzzles, you may want to check on the solution before you do it to speed things up. I'm not a big puzzle person, but I [more]

Fallout 4 Far Harbor dlc thoughts

This is a pretty good dlc by Bethesda standards. A little spendy but pretty good.

It kind of goes off of the standard method of having the dlc plot be separate from the main story. Along with this, in all the recent games, companions were [more]

Re: Rocket League Free Weekend on Steam

I ended buying it after binging on it this past weekend. It is fun game and my understanding is that is also available for Playstation. The Steam version is Windows only.

Negatives

1: Mouse and keyboard is supported, but I can't [more]

Rocket League Free Weekend on Steam

This is one of those titles that made a lot of people's top 10 list for 2015 so I thought I would give it a try. I did the tutorial and 4 matches so far which last about 5 minutes. I am playing with a controller but there are keyboard and mouse setup [more]

Re: Fallout 4 Automatron dlc and New Survival Be

Where is the 5x figure coming from? Is that a new feature in the revamped survival mode? One of the complaints (fairly common on YouTube and in forums) about FO4 is that cells respawn way too quickly in the vanilla game, leading to the tedium of [more]

Re: Fallout 4 Automatron dlc and New Survival Be

I'm one of those that think the sleep to save system is a horrific idea. I totally get that they are going for a Dark Souls vibe, and I loved, loved, loved that series ... but this is just out of place in this game. It's just not appropriate for [more]

Fallout 4 Automatron dlc and New Survival Beta

My general thoughts on the Automatron is that it isn't worth the $10 by itself. If you really enjoy the crafting and the settlement system, you can make your own robots and assign them to settlements. The main story is pretty short as it should only [more]

Re: Fallout 4 Quick? starter guide.

To shoot a the fusion core on Securitron, I meant to say Sentry bot and not securition. A little difference there. Okay a big difference.

I did confirm that the penetrator can get multiple kills with one shot also. Crit shots also [more]

Re: Fallout 4 Quick? starter guide.

I've been playing a bit lately and thought I would put in a note about the Penetrator perk which requires perception of level 9. It's a little finicky on how it works but it does have some incredible situational uses.

What can be [more]

Re: Fallout 4 - Character Builds

I started a new build from scratch and part of the inspiration was from a somewhat prominent YouTuber criticizing how overpowered Perception is in the game. The argument is that high perception makes VATS to hit too high and thus makes the game easy. [more]

Fallout 4 Quick? starter guide.

I put together a little starter guide for anyone starting out in Fallout 4. The game gets a little unfair criticism by eliminating skill points and removing the level cap allowing players to have perfect 10 builds with every perk. While theoretically [more]
