  1. Hello, can I ask - would I be allowed to use some of your Fallout 4 Review clips in my coming video, mainly addressing your comment near the end saying perhaps modder's can do something with this? I think some folks might find that interesting, Edit: For example, I would show a short clip of your Mama Murphy, and then show a gorgeous version , a new dialogue UI, and bug fixes. To be honest, I have not been producing for a while. I am 71, and had various issues all resolved. Note: apart from helping the players, this might boost my new start, and increase revisits to your video, stay safe. Greetings from an oldish Scot..😀
  2. This is a painting I did of the moment in Fallout 4 when you emerge from the Vault. I am a new recruit, and if you like my work, please leave a like and maybe follow me. Both here and follow my twitch channel link below. Please tell me you thoughts of my work, I would love to have some feedback from fellow wastlanders!https://www.twitch.tv/masterjack555 Follow me on Twitch. Also!

  3. Ok. Started a new Fallout 4 character on the new Survival difficulty. Run down of the experience so far: 1 - first, before I could even START a new game I had to disable all my mods just to get the stupid game to load. This is a bug because they all worked again once I was able to find a save point and reactivate them. 2 - speaking of saving...limited autosave and no quicksaving got old REAL fast. Now, keep in mind when I play normally I sometimes forget to save at all, and considering how many bugs there are in the game it was fortunate that the game had an autosave. While I like the idea of only being able to save by sleeping in a bed the game is faaaaaar too unstable to make this practical. Oh, did I mention I was KILLED BY TRYING TO SLEEP SO I COULD SAVE??? Fixed it by downloading a mod. 3 - no fast travel...I'm actually looking forward to working around this. Since this is a new character I haven't made it very far yet. but I think not being able to fast travel is going to force me to set up mini-bases at the various settlements. I'll definitely have to create market stalls so I can sell stuff. So far this promises to be the neatest challenge to work with. 4 - hunger, thirst, tiredness and disease...all features that I intentionally modded into Skyrim and other Fallout games. The only problem I have is that while the effects they have on you are great (not regenerating health and action points as quickly, difficulty aiming/lockpicking, etc.) they come on you way to quick. I drank two purified waters until it said I was properly hydrated and ten minutes later I was thirsty again. Will have to find or request a mod to adjust those values. 5 - no console...the command is locked out so you can't access it. normally this is fine, half the time I hit the stupid ` key while trying to hit 1 anyway. But...I have a crafting mod installed that allows you to place objects more precisely and make your settlements look much nicer (also helps get rid of those annoying corpses that won't de-spawn). It requires the console to work. Have to find a fix or my settlements are going to look boring again. Beyond that I need a few more tests. The "no saving" was the biggest draw back, which I knew it would be. Like I said, Bethesda games are just far too unstable to make limited saving a practical feature.
  4. I didn't see this being reviewed on the front page so I decided to give this a go. Please note I am reviewing the Xbox one version and performance may vary. Fallout: Nuka-world is the last DLC pack that was released by bethesda for Fallout 4 and adds a brand new open world, based around a abandoned pre-war theme park based off the iconic drink you constantly encounter across the fallout franchise, adding with it, a brand new questline where you can literally become a raider warlord and conquer the boston wasteland settlements by violence or raider diplomacy (ie blackmail and intimidation). I'll be covering a few sections in this review, so lets begin... New world map: The map where the majority of action will take place, the park in the title, is truely huge, in my opinion easily twice as large as far harbours world map. The park itself has several areas to explore, beginning in a central hub already made 'safe' which includes a arcade filled with playable games, which allows you to win prize tickets that can be refunded for special weapons, the home bases of the three major factions in the area and also features, in a nice link to fallout 3, the reappearence of the character of Sierra Petrovita, the nukacola obsessed NPC from fallout 3. Other areas include a sci-fi themed zone, a wild west themed area that for some reason is full of mini-graboids and a zoo full of mutated wildlife as well as areas outside the parks walls, such as a haunted house with a creepy quest I will not spoil here. Some of the rides can also be repairs towards the end of the main story by rebooting the parks nuclear power plant and restoring power to many parts of the park, a nice touch for completionists. New Content: Next up, new things. As stated above, the park itself is controlled by three raider gangs...the pack, a animalistic gang based off a wolf pack mentality...the operators, a almost spec ops outfit and the disciples, a classic violence and torture raider gang. As you progress through the story and clear zones of the park, you have to choose which gang controlls which area, with the one you ignore the most turning on you in the final mission. Each faction has its own preferred weapon and armor, with the packs weapons being brightly and garishly coloured over the operators professionally upkept weapons. It also includes a brand new follower in the form of a raider who will help you in guiding you through the main 'raider path' quest... The DLC also adds a horde of brand new gear and a new ammo type, in the form of the 7.62 round, which is used in the Kalashnikov-like handmade rifle. Other weapons include a new type of nuka grenade, a new version of the fatman called the nuka-nuke launcher, MIRV grenades and a water pistol that can be modified to fire exploding rounds powered by weaponized versions of nuka-colas. Others include a vastly superior version of the X-01 power armor that is found by performing a 'scavenger hunt' style quest to locate computer cores to repair the sci-fi zones main computer. For kleptomaniac/weapon and armor collector players like myself, this is great fun and the handmade rifles new ammo packs one hell of a punch. There are even nuka-world themed robot parts to customise and bots made via the robot workbench. Finally, there is, as stated, the ability to take command, over the course of the main story, the raiders of the park and lead them on a campaign to take over the settlements in the wasteland, eventually coming to blows with preston and the minutemen. For evil-aligned players, this is great fun and is a wonderful reward when you take over the park. Sadly this also brings us to... Cons: The above 'raider path' is also a con for players like me who wanna play the hero, as the only way to power up the park is to choose the alternate quest to kill off the raider gangs in the park with extreme prejudice and a minigun (weapon of raider annihilation choice may vary). This sadly can make it hard to know what to do, as it converts all the quests, such as the one to pacify the park zones or repair the power, into unmarked quests, making a raider playthrough essencial the first time round for new players to the DLC to know exactly what to do and where to go, though luckily zone-specific quests such as the computer core scavenger quest can still be activated and retain their markers when you discover them and from my experience makes it far harder to get some of the special weapons without the use of cheat mods as, using the 'good guy' quest path requires you to kill the NPC's giving out the reward and limits some weapons like the hallucinagen grenade to what you can find in the DLC's world map. Luckily these cons are not truly game breakers and can easily be ignored via the use of separate saves. The new area is a little small and some areas on the map, such as the town on the top right of the map is nothing but a ghoul-infested filler, with no purpose then just being there, which in my opinion is a missed opportunity, something I hope the modding community takes advantage of at some point. Final verdict: My final verdict is a nice, solid 8/10. Nuka-world is a nice little finale for the official DLC packs of fallout 4, adding lots of content, the ability to play as a proper villain and raider and a huge world map to explore which sadly suffers from lightly penalising players that wanna play the good guy by either forcing them to play evil the first time round or spend some time getting lost. Its a fun DLC that fallout 4 players will find enjoyable however and worth a play.
  5. Ever since the "Special Edition" came out I've been playing through the standard version of Skyrim again, well...as "standard" as 80+ mods will get you. On a whim I sat and watched Joe's review from when the game first came out: 10/10 with a Badass Seal of Approval. Then I started thinking about Fallout 4...and how I was ultimately disappointed with it. Don't get me wrong, as an open world game I enjoyed Fallout 4 a LOT (according to steam I've put about 100 more hours into it than I did Skyrim...which I've played over 715 hours ), but the story was barely there and uninteresting, I didn't feel like I was creating my own adventure like I did in Skyrim, and unlike Skyrim I actually managed to find and complete almost all the major side-quests in one play through (which made subsequent play throughs feel very "samey"). And now I'm curious. We've already talked about what we as fans would love to see in the next Elder Scrolls game, but based on what we got in Fallout 4 and the prevailing trends in RPG games recently, what do you think we can logically expect in the next ES game? Like it or not, I'm pretty sure Bethesda wants to keep expanding on the settlement mechanics from Fallout 4 (I had fun with them, but ultimately I feel they really detracted from the game). ...and should I have used Affect in the post title?

  7. Far Harbor is certainly not the best DLC the Fallout series has ever seen, but is still mostly unique and really good. You start by receiving a radio message from Valentine Detective Agency asking to meet there and start a new case. This sends you far to the north of the Commonwealth, and through a short investigation you set sail for Far Harbor. The boat ride in is reminiscent of the Point Lookout DLC for Fallout 3, which gives you a glimpse at the island as the boat drives toward the docks. Mechanically, and in a storytelling way, this DLC recycles a lot. The island Far Harbor is set on is overcast by a radioactive fog, which poisons you as you journey around, just like the poison cloud from the Dead Money DLC for New Vegas. Again, the game makes you choose who to support and who to exterminate, and even the new weapons and enemies aren't that interesting. What the DLC lacks in innovation, it does make up for in atmosphere and world building. PROS Whole new map to explore. Great story revolving around the island and the characters on it. 4-5 hour main story time, 8-10 hour completionist Multiple possible endings CONS Few new weapons, none of which are at all unique. Enemies are underwhelming and feel like reskins of other enemies. Reused mechanics from older Fallout games. Overall, I would recommend playing it just for the atmosphere and story. There is a lot to explore on the island and a lot of hidden story to find, so completionists will have a ball here.
  8. I wanted to share this in-case someone has or had trouble playing this game on a potato machine like me! So, after some time tweaking, i managed to make this game run a lot better on this old ass rig of mine, with help of a mod, a tool, to make it all more sexy without compromising all that much fps, and i changed some .ini configs to disable unnecessary stuff like god-rays. In the video i try and compare the two AA settings whilst showing my In-game fps, since those two settings take most fps, and make more, impact on the image in my opinion. ( Trying to get the best image possible as my rig would allow while still being playable) And because upgrading the shadow quality and distance even more to make the game look even better would result in a good -15 fps average on either setting! ;'D ~~Rig: GPU: XFX AMD RADEON HD 5830 1GB VRAM GDDR5 OC CPU: AMD FX-4300 QUAD CORE (2 THREADS) RAM: 4.0GB DDR3 MEMORY RAM OS : WINDOWS 10 64/BITS PSU: 750Watts MO : gigabyte ga-970a-d3P REV 1.0 Native res: 1920x1080 60hz ( 1440x900 60hz borderless while playing) Using latest possible AMD crimson driver~~ I personally find this a huge improvement from what the standard game, where in areas i would get 10 fps on all LOW. And now all because of a mod really, i am able to play and even install several mods on it, and even plugin a "sharp" injector, to remove the blurriness of stuff this game seems to like doing. I ultimately got two options to play from. Current config with TAA + Sharp, and or current config with FXAA + sharp. (FXAA runs better tho) Here's the link to the mod you'd need: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/606/ The instructions of tools used to sharpen the image and what not, links, Game settings used, .ini files, TUTORIAL, installation etc... can be found in the text document in the video description ^^ You can ofcourse, just install the mod, and play vanilla just fine, but, its kind of ugly still. As you won't get higher than medium-low settings at times, even with textures on ultra! (Blurr and edges be damned.) In-game quality should look like the first picture in the video (Compressing video files sucks)

I heard they are probably gonna do something with the "glowing sea", or a complete underwater experience? OR ALIENS? (<Yes please). Or perhaps a blast to the past? Excited to see what they'll come up with! What kind of DLC do you think they'll put forth?

  13. Seriously, Garvey fucking irritating and actually made the game un-enjoyable in parts for me. First of all, biggest reason he's annoying, the endless god damn Minutemen quests, which are literally the exact same two or maybe three quests again and again and again, and the game already has enough problems with quest variety, and he gives them to you just by walking near him. In fact, that's one thing that annoys the hell out of me about this game in general, the amount of characters that just run up to you and automatically dump a "Go here, kill these guys" quest on you. I really wish Bethesda patch that out, because it's just annoying. At least in Fallout 3 you had to actually talk to characters to activate quests, if it's getting to the point where I'm running away from a guy in the Railroad because I don't want him to dump a quest on me, they've done something wrong with the game's design. I got so tired of running away from Garvey before he dumped another boring quest on me, I actually set him as my companion just to send him to Coastal Cottage, WAAAAAY away from me so he just be there alone and not constant dump the same 'go kill raiders' quests on me. And to be brutally honest, the game has actually got way more enjoyable now that I don't have to worry about that crap. He doesn't even make a good companion, because he just bitched and whined at me the second I asked for money or did anything that would help me. If you don't act selfless constantly he just sits there bitching about how you're acting. Fuck off, Garvey, honestly XD Now I'm just gonna list off nitpick things that bug me about the game: Biggest one, the lack of mission variety. I think by now it's fair to say there are way too many missions where you just go to a place and kill everything. When you compare it to the quests from older games like the Wasteland Survival Guide, or the Tenpenny Tower, or anything as interesting as the guides from Elder Scrolls. They're reaaaaaally banking on the laser musket being more iconic than it really is. It's in all the trailers, it's in the title screen, it's like they're trying to make it the new hunting rifle. I dunno about you guys but I never use the laser musket, it's too inconvenient, even as a sniper rifle. Why is it I have to help defend a settlement that has 30 Mk II machine gun turrets defending it? Like, literally nothing can go near that settlement without being torn to pieces, yet I have to drop what I'm doing to go help them. The settlement has a defence rating of 150 for christ sake. The lack of choice in clothes you can put armour pieces on. There's, what, five, maybe six outfits in the whole game that let you wear armour over them? Considering how wearing armour pieces is better than any one piece of armoured outfit you should be able to wear more things under the armour, or at least be able to upgrade the outfits. What about you guys? Anything bugging you about Fallout 4? Bare in mind guys, it's okay to admit there are things wrong with the games you love. I'm actually having a blast with Fallout 4 despite how annoying I find some of these things
  14. hey guys im doing a one life run of fallout 4 if you want to check it out http://www.twitch.tv/mainman651
  15. Which faction did you support the most in Fallout 4? My playtrough and opinion is below. (SPOILERS BELOW) I felt such conflict going trough Fallout 4's main story line for the first time, firstly, i supported the Minuteman, then, i felt the urge to kill kelogg. So i did, and i found my first real interesting faction soon afterwards, the Brotherhood of steel, while at first i discarded them, i couldn't resist getting on that air balloon the first time i saw it. But i felt like i was betraying the railroad who i had discovered earlier, but i did not relies they where a major faction before. As soon as i learned the intention of the BoS, i found out they where in conflict with the railroad's ideals and vise versa. But funny enough, they both despised the Institute. So i went on and build up my massive crudge agains't the institute, but, i felt conflicted, The brotherhood tag along to cleanse the commonwealth of filth, and scavage goody tech, with they themselfs thinking they are paving the way for civilization to grow. Yet, the railroad want's to save the "Human like" or "Conscious" or "self aware" synths, which is also a noble objective, but perhaps less productive for the future, as it is unknown what gen 3 synths are capable off (make replicas?). So there i went, trying to help both factions as much as i could, up until the moment the BoS wanted to move on the institute, and so i build the so called device needed to get myself in there. When i did i was expecting resistance, since my service to both factions must have caught the institute's awareness. Yet it had presented me with a child, and a old man (Feels insert here from that moment on). Me and my questionable nature, forced me to question the old man about everything the institute was doing. While the info was quite limited, i felt a certain pitty, and decided to give them, as i did the others, a chance, so i went on to do all faction quests at once, not knowing which one i should support, the BoS became more fanatic, the railroad became shady as fuck, and surprisingly the institute became more open to me the more i helped them. Also presenting me with more and more info on why they do the things they do. All in all, the only factions i believe have a chance to help the commonwealth and beyond are: the Brotherhood of steel, and the institute. As i understand The brotherhood is one of the most advanced factions in East united states, they have been growing significantly since the events of Fallout 3. They scavange all the prewar goodies, to advance them self's and keep others from tinkering with the toys. Also cleansing all post war "filth" Believing they are doing humanity a favor by avoiding another doomsday event at all costs. The institute is an isolated faction, trying to expand with the help of there toys "Synths", being extremely efficient in scavenging and gaining a presence on the commonwealth, they are highly advanced, and have the capabilities to soon reach a point where they could recreate the wastes itself (Just like gecks, or so they made me believe that) and use there toys to do the hard and dangerous work for them. They are a more "The future" kind of group just like the BoS, but are thinking more ahead with there tech. As i understand, the railroad is a group, made out of synths and humans trying to destroy the institute and simply wants to save the gen 3 synths, and destroy anyone who opposes that goal, regarding them as equals to humans, due to the synths ability to gain consciousness. As soon as the brotherhood arrived, they immediately went hostile learning of there intentions, as did the BoS. Ultimately, i went with the institute and destroyed the other two factions, because i believe the other factions will not contribute quite enough to actually make a huge difference in the commonwealth and beyond, even though the Brotherhood has a good chance, they are too zealot-ish and egoistical and that makes them blind to certain things. I was quite surprised by the institute, the way they view things, and why, they don't seem evil, they are just smart, and egoistical, when it comes to self preservence, or atleast, that's what i noticed. They let me believe they truly have the capability to change the wastes with there technology, and are willing to apply it, for the good of all, with extreme caution. (AI Takeover anyone?) In the end, you become the head of the institute, the leader it needs. They are told to do as you say, so that means you can order them to be more passive and help people along the way by instigating them to release the past methods used arguing they where obsolete. If they are so advanced as they seem, the best option would have been to help them since the beginning, because of the assumption they are the best hope of a "pre-war world" (Or modern post war world) Assuming they achieve a means to use as minimal raw resources as possible and are able to create artificial resources anytime in the future. Because that would be ideal. And i personally don't believe the BoS or any other faction could possibly achieve such level anytime in the next 200 years. This is what I understood while playing, you might have other opinions or found other info about the factions i am unaware off. So please, who did you go with ultimately?
  16. Hi ladies and gents, started a new project on my channel with Fallout 4. It's part let's play, part review in progress as I chat about my experiences with the game on a day-by-day basis. I don't normally do stuff like this so any feedback you peeps you could give would be much appreciated. Part Two
  17. Is anyone else getting rather dissapointed with the roleplaying aspects of Fallout 4? I'm finding it harder and harder to immerse myself in the game as more and more often I feel like I don't have a lot of options. Playing a male character has really brought this to my attention with how flat the male voice actor sounds. I don't mind having a bit more direction in my story (I do love Mass Effect, after all) but I've gotten used to huge amounts of roleplaying freedom from Bethesda games. Sure, every now and then I see options to extort caps from people and shit like that, but I've never really seen any options to be outright evil on any of my characters. And from what I've heard from people who've gotten into the Institute storyline, there's still not really a lot of downright evil shit. The new dialogue system sucks. Like, sucks balls. No matter what you choose it usually ends up with the same outcome, the only thing that might be different is if whatever person you're traveling with has an issue with how you phrased it. I'm already missing the wide-open freedom of Skyrim, of New Vegas, and of Fallout 3. I could do whatever I wanted, be whatever I wanted to be. But in Fallout 4, there's not nearly as much freedom. In Skyrim, I could run off after Helgen and not look back. Sure, I can do that in Fallout 4 after I leave the Vault, but I'm finding there's not nearly as much to do. The world just isn't grabbing me like Skyrim or New Vegas did, because it's very obviously trying to force me into a role here. What if I don't like that role? Well, too bad, you won't have any interesting quests to do. I still love the game, the gameplay is fantastic, a lot of the characters are great and most of the dialogue is well voiced. Am I alone here, or is anyone else in the AJSA feeling the roleplay blues?
  18. I tried, okay. I tried to like Fallout. I seriously tried to like this damn franchise. I played Fallout 3, New Vegas, and hell, I bought Fallout 4 day one (It was either this or Battlefront, and that for sure as hell wasn't happening). I. F**king. Tried. But I can't do it. I just can't. I don't know with this franchise anymore. I just can't enjoy Fallout and I seriously don't know what it is. It has nothing to do with it being an RPG or its post-apocalyptic setting or anything. I seriously don't know what it is. I absolutely hated Fallout 3 and New Vegas when I first played them. Now my reasons for that was because of the shitty gunplay they had (which has not aged well might I add) and the downright ugliness of the games. Everything was an ugly greenish-brown in Fallout 3. Wasn't any better in New Vegas, which everything was orange, only uglier. I seriously thought that those were the main reasons for me not liking those games. But then Fallout 4 happens and yet with the much improved gunplay and art style, I still hated it. This just saddens me. I want to like this franchise, I really do, but it just can't happen. I didn't even make it past lvl. 20 yet. It came to point were I was forcing myself to continue because I payed $60 for this game. But I just can't keep trying anymore. For all you guys who are loving Fallout, great. I'm happy you are loving this series and the recent one that came out. But me? I just can't do it anymore. Have you guys ever felt the same way with any other popular game or franchise out there?
  19. So this happen... MLB stepped in to remove a (non-profit) mod taking the standard baseball jersey and turning it into a David Ortiz jersey. "The use of these marks is an infringement of our rights," an MLB rep told the Boston Globe. "We plan to enforce those rights."

  20. So what are your people amazing, or amazeballs, none story encounters. That would exclude the Deathclaw encounter at the beginning in Concord. To begin this out here are 2 that I had. 1. I was walking into the outskirt of a city when I came across a trading caravan, who was fighting a group of Synths... Who was also fighting a group of Super Mutants, which included a suicider. So of course I join the fight, I cant just stay out of it. Well... Suddenly a Deathclaw charged into the mix... Yeah, I lost my head at that point, literally. And that caravn was leaving the whole time. 2. I came across this tower, and thank God aswell because when I went to the top I were attacked by a group of raiders, which included a Legendary Raider. Well It thats not the amazeballs part. Because out of nowhere a Deathclaw AND a Alpha Deathclaw charged the raiders, yes Im not joking, I even took a screenshot. Luckely I was on the top of the tower with a rather good sniper rifle and over 100 bullets. Unlucky me, while the raider bits remained both the Deathclaws just vanished after I killed them THANKS GAME
  21. Fallout 4 is coming soon. What does everyone expect?
