    Wow, they butchered the Super Sledge too? Was hoping to have it's badass look from 3/NV, now it looks exactly as they described it: Just a hammer with a rocket slapped on the back, because "Reasons". Personally preferred the Super Sledge being some sort of High powered hammer with a kinetic storage thing inside, so when it whacks someone, it would release the energy out and send the enemy flying. Like a....shotgun hammer I guess?

    Thanks. They do make it easy for Bethestards by telling that it's shit in the title already, but the same thing will probably happen to mine as well. I don't really care myself, but it's a friend's project, and I think it might upset him. I've warned him already, though.

    Yeah melee has been really gimped in this game. Pretty much 95% of enemies use guns, few that don't pretty much exclusively use shit like pool cues and security batons, with maybe a sledgehammer thrown in occasionally. Unarmed is also pretty much dead on arrival, as you can't use power fists with power armor, and you do so little damage with your bare fists in power armor that you may as well just pull out a pipe pistol to fight with instead. Basically all the legitimately good or fun melee weapons you have to buy, and to top it all off, they don't have anywhere near the same level of modifiability that guns get. Oh, and Deathclaws do have a grab move that instantly kills you regardless of how much health you have, so yeah, pretty much suicide to try and get into melee range of one.

    No one wanted to.


    Bethesda watched Conan play in horror and realised, too late, that they made Fallout 4 too cerebral for the vast majority of its players.

    How long until someone puts the original Fallout on the Pip-Boy game player?

    :lol:

    I've been lucky so far. All of the times the retarded AI decided to dance around a bunch of explosives it was some "Raider Scum" asshole. The dog usually stays behind me when I'm sneaking.

    And I'm always sneaking since in FO4 you sneak at pretty much the same speed as normal walk.

    Even that was better in New Vegas. The psychic kid was an ok NPC, that Whitney Houston Mama Murphy is annoying as fuck.

    Not to mention completely avoidable. Didn't find that kid until my 2nd or 3rd playthrough (as well as the merchant next to him) and his answers were pretty vague iirc.

    Wayne Newton was a great choice for Mr. New Vegas even if he is a has-been C-lister. He fit the game perfectly and, honestly, gave a decent enough performance despite his advancing age. Also, like you said it felt more like actual news reports than Three Dog commenting on your character.

    The DJ in FO4 is horrible. I get there's a quest you can do to make him more 'confident' but that feels like a bunch of forced SJW anti-bullying bullshit. The DJ in these games should fit the area like Wayne Newton fit Las Vegas. Lots of Boston types they could have gotten. Bill Burr would have been a good choice.

    So people buy Bethesda games to mess around with their bugs? Surely they've hit a gold mine within this niche market! :smug:

    The music is really good this time around. Along with the challenging combat, attacking Quincy down south felt, dare I say, epic having to take all my drugs and barely making it out alive while some power armor guy chased me down.

    Andhaira said the same thing once.

    He was reduced to begging for accounts.

    And make no mistake, by the time this is all through, Tyrannosaurus Rex will beg.

    Or maybe it's because Fallout 4's opening is the longest and most boring of any Bethesda game yet. Yes, even worse than Skyrim's carriage ride.

    As Daedaolos said, it's more likely people that preordered but didn't have time to play yet or people that are waiting for some patches and/or mods before they start playing. Some might not be interested in playing now, etc.
