Fallout 4’s game-breaking bug, and how to avoid it

Fallout 4’s game-breaking bug, and how to avoid it

I've been trying to take a more old school approach to playing Fallout 4. Namely, I've been avoiding looking at guides or tips online, because I want to experience the joy of exploring, and finding secrets on my own.

Fallout 4 Review

Fallout 4 Review

America is an irradiated wasteland. Your environment in Fallout 4 is what Judge Dredd might refer to as the "Cursed Earth" part of North America. In it, your alternate reality is littered with extravagant industrial designs and the white bread attitudes of the 40's and 50's dashed into desolation and dreariness.
