I didn't spoil anything! I've said nothing beyond what was already hinted by Todd Howard at E3.

Here's a non-spoiler: it's obvious that Bethesda spent a lot of time making this game special. If you liked the gameplay of Skyrim, this will really tickle your pickle.

Pretty sure they even outright stated it, calling the player character the Lone Survivor.

Muthafuckin launch trailer is out. I'm on the phone so grabbing the link would take too much effort.

Pete Hines recently tweeted that graphics are 1080p 30fps for both consoles, and PC has no restrictions on resolution nor fps.

Anybody that preordered through Amazon should have received an email confirming release day delivery of both the game and the strategy guide. I got mine through Gamestop so I'm braving the crowd at midnight in freezing weather in the hopes of getting some promotional shit to take home.

Just a few days left. Less than 100 hours.

Ironically enough, I uninstalled Skyrim, which I never played on PC but played a bit on 360 as my console purchase came with a download code for it, to make room for Fallout 4.

The FO4 subreddit is blowing up lately with some pretty kick ass material (not spoilers, either) leading up to the game's release. The love for Fallout is making itself very well known.

I've already been posting a lot of stuff there today, albeit under an assumed name because somebody already took Tessou. Who the fuck takes my goddamn name?!

My Fallout themed Loot Crate arrived a few minutes ago. Lots of cool shit in a giant box.

Game unlocks at 12:01am EST tomorrow night for US players. My copy is installed, mocking me with a "you can't open this yet" message.

Cecilia is anxious to create herself now that female customization options have been overhauled. No more potato faced characters!

HAH! Use Pete Hines' doctor note if you need an excuse. biggrin.gif

Mine unlocks at 11pm tonight, so I'm stuck watching twitch streams and cursing the "preordered" stripe on my installed copy that won't let me play.

Just because you like the game doesn't mean that its faults magically goes away for other people.

True, but I'm looking at the game from a technical perspective, whereas he was very blatantly going with opinionated bias. "It looks shitty" has no basis aside from personal taste.

Metacritic is brutal if you look at user reviews. Professional reviews do not follow that logic, with a 23-1 positive/negative split. There are two ratings systems for a reason.

Here is an actual review of Fallout 4 by a regular player on Metacritic: No "Hardcore mode", no weapon/armor degradation, no reputation system, no "traits", and the plot and characters are flat.
But you can build weapons, houses and interact with the "real" pip-boy, so who cares?


Allow me to translate: "It's not New Vegas so it's garbage."

As for glitches, it's a Bethesda game on day one. After 18 straight hours in the game, it locked up on me twice. I've documented a few glitches, but aside from the lockups (which didn't freeze the console, btw) the only one that really sucked was where my companion wouldn't get out of "unconscious" mode even after fast traveling. Also, the radio skipped a track once. I missed half of Sixty Minute Man. sad.gif

I'm not trying to be a dick to SushiYummy. I'm pointing out that his critique of the game lacked an editorial point of view.

not my critique its metacritics. my review is that its an rpg.I watched some guy stream it and die over and over again because the save was when he was being attacked by a dog so he had to mash q to get the turn based combat system going. This is all because the time he had to react was shortened by a stupid black screen everytime he loaded into his save. Eventually RNG saved him.

Edit: hype killed the expectations. Like watch dogs. dont overhype.

edit edit: as to quote totalbiscut:"i dont review rpgs because they take hundreds of hours to play" Professional reviewers play the game for a few hours and write their reviews. Really a professional review like ign: well it has bugs and stuff 9.5/10. What kind of review is that.

Way to condense two pages of review into a cromagnon sentence.

Almost every pro review came after at least 60 hours of play.

I'm not gonna fight your opinion, just the brevity of it. Can't play 60fps 1440p on Radeon, zero stars. Saw physics error once, Bethesda failed us all. I could go on.

My own experience so far is "happy and enjoying". It's definitely a step up.

I'm really enjoying it. Bethesda really stepped up in the writing department. A bit sad repairing is not a thing anymore but that's fine since power armor requires regular upkeep. The game is pretty great. Mind you it doesn't make me move new vegas out of my top 10 of all time or anything but regardless it's great. Really like the legendary weapons/armor that can spawn off of enemies. My biggest issue has to be with companion accuracy. They are REALLY bad at aiming..



@sushiyummy32
It's called metabombing. It happens occasionally with big time releases. With all the witcher 3 fans crowding up the fallout 4 forums on steam and elsewhere I'm surprised it's not worse. Witcher 3 may be a great game but that doesn't give them the right to act like asses.

It was slow to start, and I still feel like it could be faster, but there's story and backstory and soaking it all in takes time.

I like the lack of weapon and armor degradation, as I don't play for the RPG aspects, I play to be engaged by the story and the side quests. I've always found that shit to be distracting, when I have to wander off to try to find another gun or piece of armor to repair what I've got, or to find a suitable replacement.

I've been happy with it though.
