Fallout 4 First Impression

Fallout 4

Found 36 posts - Go to Last Post


I played about 2-2.5 hours last night, and I am hooked. Being at work today SUCKS. The reviews out there have been pretty accurate, so far. The game is hard, and is really unforgiving in that aspect. I have died a few times already. I have been streaming my play, too.

WARNING!!! SPOILERS IN THE BELOW VIDEO!!!
My first gameplay footage from 11/10/2015 at launch

I cannot wait to get home tonight. I should have 5-6 hours of play time available to me. I will continue to stream, so, if you are interested to watch, www.twitch.tv/futiles after 6:00PM CST.


My wife must have thought I was being too productive at work today, so, she sent me the picture above when my Pip-Boy arrived.

Nope, not distracted AT ALL.

It isn't an MMO, where I kill the zorgeboosh for a class 8 repeating devastator just to go fight a level 57 busslebuddy later...

The gear is scaled for the experience, as always. My gametime is all about enjoyment. I went with the default settings for this play.
I spent time with the city builder tonight. WOW!

It is streamlined like Skyrim's crafting, but extremely deep
a lot of people on my Instagram were showing their unboxing of the pip boy edition, it looks heavenly.
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Do you think you can be a badass in my leaderboard?? GTN Badass of the Month

While not admiring the collection, I did play from about 7PM - 2AM CST. Settlement Construction is going to be a huge time suck. I probably played around in crafting for 3 hours alone.

Last night's game session (mostly) - You can see both weapon customization and settlement building featured in it. (As always, there may be Spoilers!)
futiles, don't forget to post when you're going to twitch - I'll watch it.

Here is futiles, in the Commonwealth:

I've seen futiles in the wasteland, he looks nothing like that.

Hold on...
I am pretty sucked into the settlement building and exploration. I should get back to the quests at some point, but, I like having fast travel points available...

Settlements are in predetermined areas, yes, but there are plenty.
