    Video game journalists love to hype the shit out of new games and make them seem like the best thing ever. When the next big game comes along, they'll suddenly start to find flaws from their previous 10/10 game just to make the new one seem even better.

    The Codex is the opposite: when a new shit game is released, Codexers suddenly start to find good things from the previous irredeemable piece of shit (like FO3) so that they could bash the new piece of shit even further.

    With Idiot Savant you have roughly as much exp at Int 1 as at Int 10.

    Going Idiot Savant is counterproductive to getting all levels in science and since that perk is necessary for the only fun thing in the game (Building stuff) its sorta not a good idea.

    That Stalker artwork with FO4's logo has been going around for a very long time and media still uses it as if it was genuine. It's funny, because people always point out the mistake. At least there's a huge number of Stalker fans, which can only be cool.

    That's the most retarded thing I've read itt. First of, there is nothing fun about F4. Second, building stuff is by far the most pointless and dumbfucked activity in the whole game. And third, if you play on any non-carebear difficulty (very hard or survival) you have to use VATS all the time. And Luck has all the neat perks for VATS.

    Idiot Savant is the xp bonus perk? Watching RK47's LP, he's getting two free levels after doing some plot related quests or something like that... it's ridiculous.

    Yeah when it procs on a quest reward you get 5x the XP and jump up by two levels easy. You don't even have to min-max it too much, you can set INT to 3 to get that Gun Nut perk and you'll still drown in XP.

    With int 1 it procs pretty often, on any xp related activity, including building, cooking or upgrading shit, discovering locations and ofc quest completion. A jump of 2 levels is not that common but can happen (ive seen it once).

    Early on 3 levels is possible with idiot savant, the first minuteman quest for example.

    All jokes aside but F4 really does not have any decent artworks (or I havent seen them). Even F3 had some cool art with Paladin in power armor standing in front of the destroyed white house. It just shows how bethestards couldnt be assed to even pretend that they cared. I mean I never would have thought that I would say this but even Skyrim doesnt seem to be that bad compared to F4. It had some nice snowy locations that reminded me of the Icewind Dale, couple of more or less ok quests or even obllivion had some memorable guild quest lines. But f4 that is just THE bottom and yet the most sold out bethesda game..... dont know what to say..... God help us all.
    When is underrail out again??

    Some realy nice pictures there, thanx. But no one forced them to use Gamebryo, they were just too greedy to buy/make the new engine despite being one of the richest companies out there.

    Building bases is almost the only real fun thing in this Game.
    I play on surival all the time with almost never using VATS, the difficulty is still laughable low.
    The only remotely difficult encounter i ever faced was having to kill that stupid Legendary Deathclaw in one of the basements of a raider base with the low-level pipe-submachinegun while having no powerarmor.
    And even that just boiled down to simply chain-popping units of that speeddrug and shooting a bit less than 400 bullets into it.

    You on the other hand obviously suck at gaming in general and shooting in perticular if you need shit like VATS in a piss-easy game like this. On top of that, playing a game that you find no fun in is a pretty good sign that you are either some sort of masochist or just clinically retarded.

    Now sod of, you fucking scrub.

    As a software engineer, I have to applaud Bethesda's strategy. Nowhere else in the software industry do people build once-off and throw away stuff over and over again. When I was a kid, a full price game release was 12 quid. Now it's 50, plus whatever they can nickel and dime out of customers with DLC and microtransactions. Pretty much the whole industry has gone bankrupt and whole genres are life extinct because of graphics whoring.

    Bethesda's graphics might be shit compared to the industry as a whole, but from the sounds of it their QA record is on an upwards trend. The less lines of code there are that haven't been battlefield tested to death already, the cheaper and better the product. I'd prefer it better if they just kept the whole engine the same as the Skyrim revision and concentrated on the gameplay and mechanics.

    Already the bethestards in the very beth forums are trying their best to damage control on the very aesthetics of the game, especially on the weapons.

    Assault rifle looks like shit and utter nonsense, water cooled-barrel, side-fed magazine and overall just hideous design, and of,course there's the "hurr durr left bolt hunting rifle", to which their way of settling the fire is to make an idiotic statement such as:

    -Fallout is set in the 1950-60s, bruh, there wasn't any modern weapon in that era.

    Side note: the fact the player only equips one unarmed weapon on the right hand, and not even attempts to dual wield sensible weapons such as knuckle dusters and boxing gloves seriously makes me think the SS mentally challenged.

    If the weapons look terrible to you, then you lack imagination.
    I mean, I have a guy who bitch at my videos for displaying a laser rifle that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Imagine that.
    This faggot obviously knows how Laser Weapons is supposed to work and won't let his imagination overlook it.
    What an asshole.

    Can't you just imagine that every vertibird pilot was your ex-boyfriend whom you dumped after you got your sex change? I find it absolutely amazing that the game cared that much about me that a dying pilot would deliberately steer his vessel to deliver maximum harm towards me upon his last moments of living.

    If you want to be ignored by the game, don't play it. It's as simple as that.
    Ad Victoriam, wastelander. Oh, I bet you don't know what that means. It means 'To Victory'.

    It totally means "For Victoria". Your bethestadian fallout lore is weak!


    Also - where the fuck do they get all those bertibirds?

    Question for armchair generals and military equipment enthusiasts (and actual soldiers, since the codex has a few afaik)

    This is apparently the US Army's APC in the FO4 verse -

    And this is the passenger hold in the rear -

    Maybe my vision is screwed by bethesdian proportions, but that seems a little small? Maybe 6 passengers with barely any room left for storage beyond what the soldier is presumably carrying and I doubt more than 3-4 PA troopers can fit in there.
