Fallout 4 is a great game, for many reasons. However, just because it's great, doesn't mean that it isn't lacking in some departments. One of the things missing is the trait system, that many people enjoyed in Fallout: New Vegas. Thankfully, traits are coming back, in the form of a mod.
We know that war never changes, but what about the seasons? In the world of Fallout, everything seems to be frozen in a bubble of time. Sure, crops grow, but aside from that, the trees and other vegetation remain exactly the same. Thankfully one creative modder set out to fix this little detail.
The Elder Scrolls Online MMO has undergone a fair number of changes since it was first released. The biggest, of course, was the game's transition to a free-to-play title. However, next year the game is going somewhere that few western MMO's have succeeded.
War. War never changes. Of course, neither do the people who play games like Fallout. While the games can be fun on their own, some people like to add extra challenges on their own. One popular one is making a complete playthrough of the game without killing anyone. And Fallout 4 doesn't make that an easy option for you.
Can't get enough Star Wars or Fallout this holiday season? Oh good, I'm not the only one. Well, one modder has decided that the only way they can fulfill their desire for both things was to add a little bit of Star Wars magic to the Commonwealth.
Not every game gets a lot of merchandise tie-ins when it comes out. After all, I don't remember picking up any Goat Simulator-branded soda at the store. However, Fallout fans have hardly been left wanting when it comes to merchandise. And today we have a peek at something new, and it looks fantastic.
Fallout 4 is easily one of the biggest hit games of the year. With its post-apocalyptic setting and near-endless list of things to do and quests to complete, it's easy to understand how players could get so caught up in the game's world that lose track of time. And their job. And their real-world spouse too. That's exactly what happened to a poor Russian gamer, and now he's suing Fallout 4's totally evil developer, Bethesda, for not providing him with a "warning," which surely would have prevented this from happening.
With Fallout 4 having been out in the wild for a month now, there's not much reason to mess with the mobile game, right? Well, we can't always be at our computers/consoles to wander the Commonwealth, so Fallout Shelter still lets you get some of that experience on the go. And Bethesda hasn't forgotten about it either. In fact, they've just released a new update for the mobile game.
Fallout 4 is the first game in the franchise to give a voice to your protagonist. In previous titles, whenever you had a dialogue prompt, you'd simply read your character's lines. Since your character can speak, Bethesda trimmed down their dialogue prompts, only presenting you with the smallest snippet of each possible response. If you miss getting to read through each of the responses, then you're in luck.
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. I've also found renewed joy in sharing my experiences with friends who have chosen to take the same approach. However, when it comes to game-breaking bugs, it's worth a look at what not to do. Minor spoilers after the jump.
Launch day for Fallout 4 includes the release of NVIDIA's newest Game Ready driver, ready to pump the quality up to the tippety top of all your computer's abilities. Users will - of course - need an NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU, the Game Ready driver itself, and GeForce Experience more than likely. Using the GeForce Experience, users will be able to tap into optimal settings for their unique setup with a couple of taps of a couple of buttons - far easier than going in to the game's settings and setting everything up yourself.
