Re: Fallout 4 - Is it for me?

Here I am thrashing a deceased equine. This goes to the question: “Will it be fun?” To really answer it, you have to look at the main criticisms of the game. This is particularly slanted to the PC version.

The UI is horrible, but it goes [more]

Re: KOTOR II receives update 10 years after launch.

I reinstalled the game and have played it a bit over the last week. If you read the original post you will see that this game received an official update 10 years after its release. I'm looking at it from a PC perspective, so I can't say what they [more]

I'll just put a few more thoughts on game play and starting your character.

Re: FO4 - Mega Settlement Building

If you are on a console, I don't know that there is anything that you can do as far as raising the building cap. Maybe once the GECK is released and there are mods for consoles that raises or removes the building cap. I'm assuming that there are no [more]

Re: Fallout 4 - Is it for me?

Can I play the game without settlements? - For the most part you can. There is a part of the main quest line where it requires you to use some settlement mechanics. If you skip by all of the minutemen quest, this could be pretty frustrating. [more]

Re: FO4 - Mega Settlement Building

I like this but it seems weird that they don't support a lot of it in the base game and you need mods for so much of it. I play on the PS4 and don't really like using mods anyway, and it's annoying to me how much maneuvering it takes for me to [more]

Re: Fallout 4 - Character Builds

Have you considered Life Giver instead (or in addition but as a higher priority?) Survival level combat is basically a function of how long your health bar can hold out since there's no quick healing. I'd need to go check the math again, but I [more]

Re: Fallout 4 - Initial Mods

The good news is that the Fallout 4 1.2 patch is now in full release on Steam. The bad news, according to this Nexus Mods forum thread, is that intentionally or not, it breaks support for mods.

Re: Fallout 4 - Initial Mods

Just a note. Today, Bethesda released an update 1.2. It more than likely will disable mods that were running on 1.1. If you can disable the auto update before it updates, it will save you a world of grief.
