    As someone who didn't play either I can say hivemind is completely right.

    As someone who put entire Bethesda subforum on ignore list (don't want to reopen old wounds), I wonder why I still see this thread on main page, why it's not there.

    better it be due to this than so they can talk about gamergatetm

    good review bubbles, I didn't play FO4 because I knew it would be shit and review mostly confirmed my expectations but I particularly enjoyed your example of skill checks literally not making any difference

    Took me two days to read, but good review.

    The initial footage of Fallout 4 had me intrigued, because the world looked so much more colorful and varied than that of Fallout 3. Reading this, the game sounds worse than I could have imagined.

    While the review is good, so far I havent seen as much butthurts and rage as expected from such a gem.

    Either fallout 4 is too shit, or RPG Codex is too mainstream...

    The latter is a terrifying vision.

    I bet half the reason is that when a typical F4 player sees this 30 page behemoth of a review, he doesnt even try to read it. Hell, he havent read any of the stupid books at school, why would he read a book on the internet!

    They both look like smug bastards imo.
    Appropriate for a true Codexer though.
    :incline:
    And they both wear glasses.

    From all the comments, this was the one that scared me the most:

    Please tell me that's a troll.

    You could have pointed out more flaws for #6

    Like how the settlers are effectively invincible unless attacked by the player, making the act of setting up defenses essentially larping if you do things like set up turrets in effective positions or plant traps instead of just maxing out the defense value as efficiently as possible so you won't get random defense prompts (which are the only way for settlers to die since they're only invincible when the player is near and even though you had more than enough turrets to defeat those four raiders since the player wasn't there then everyone died)

    Thanks to this review I now know that even the codex is infested with the need for VO. FFS, this takes 15 mins or so to read. I take longer shits every single day

    Thanks to quoted reddit comments in this thread I now know:

    1. Diablo was a turn-based game
    2. Reviews should only contain facts and zero amount of subjective opinions from the reviewer.
    3. I hope ITZ comes soon and takes all these people with it.

    I dread to think how long a VO version of this review would last

    A lot of pho and ramen. Supplemented with bad and overpriced Mexican food.

    It'd probably be a two-disc audio book.
