Back Into Fallout 4

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2017 by getbent57

One of the best games ever is Fallout 4.  Owned this game since launch back in November 2015.  Played around 55 hours before putting it aside.  Now that I finished Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.  Was thinking about buying a new game.  There is one I really want.  While waiting for next pay day.  Put Fallout 4 back in.  Decided to start from the very beginning with a new character.  Got sucked right back in.  So know am think I will be playing this for awhile.  Then I will go buy the game I really after that.

Fallout 4

Fallout_4.jpgIts has been about three weeks since Fallout 4  came out.  Have put about 36 hours into playing and have barely put a scratch into what the game has to offer.  Have done very few quest.  Spend most of the time exploring, collecting junk then crafting.  That is what is great about this game.  It is a different experience for everyone.  So people just play though the main storyline.  Other may just do the side quest.  Have seen lots of pictures of people building all kinds of crazy basses.  There is something new around every corner.  May never finish this game.   Which doesn’t matter because I am have fun no matter what.

Fallout 4 Crafting

Fallout_4.jpgHave put some time into Fallout 4 and enjoyed very minute.  It takes some time to get used to the menus as well as the crafting. It is not the best menu system out there.  However once you do it pretty easy to navigate.  If you ever played any of the games these guys make you know there is all kinds of stuff to pickup.  Most time its just junk that has no use.  This game is different.  There is a craft system.  All the items can be broken down in to components.  Which is cool.  But tying to find components you need can be a pain.  Found something the makes it better.  If you try to craft something and are missing components you can flag it.   When you are out in the world exploring and come across items.  A little magnifying glass is next to the name of the item.  So I flag all the components that are harder to come by.  Now that the game has been out for a week.  There are all kinds of videos out there on what people have made.  There is some much to look at explore have only did about four missions.  It is easy to get distracted.  Making your own fun.

Price Of Video Games

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by getbent57

Fallout_4.jpgWant to talk about the price of videos games on how they are way too much now.  I know every time a new generation of game consoles comes out they price goes a bit.  Because they are new and the last gen games are still being made.  Then after a while the price will go down.  So far that has not happened.  Remember buying lots of game for my PS3 an they cost $60.  Then when the when I buy my PlayStation 4 they still cost about $60.  Then the price when up.  I was kind of fine with at.  Next the games went up to $70 plus tax.  Back in February (2015) bought the PS4 version GTA V with was $70.  With tax it came to 80.49.  A few days ago picked up Fallout 4.  That game any pretty much all the new games cost $80.  So with tax it cost me just about $92.00.  Which is insane.  I know some people will wait for a price drop.  However I feel like why should someone who wants a new game that just came out wait six months to a year to buy the game they are looking forward to playing.  I know for one think I will be buy less games if this price point keeps up.

Fallout_4.jpgIt is Tuesday November 10, 2015.  So that means it Fallout 4 day.  Have been looking forward to playing this game even since I seen they show it off at this years E3.  Did play a bit o Fallout 3.  But never could get into it.  However I can see myself getting into this one.  So at lunch time today went and picked up myself a copy.  There was not one else there getting a copy.  Only one old guy picking up Call of Duty for someone else.  About to load it up.  Will be back with a first impressions  update after playing for a bit.

[Update]  Played a little over two hours.  First off the game is very nice looking.  Spent most of the time looking at stuff and exploring around the first part of the world.  Right after you leave the fault.  Still getting use to the VATS system.  There looks like there is a lot of crafting stuff as well. Did a small bit of that.  Like cooking food and upgrade my gun.  Really like it so far.

Fallout_4Not sure why I haven’t talked about Fallout 4 until now.  It was one if not the biggest games revealed at this years E3 (2015).  The game looks so awesome and I know will be fun to play.  While I have Fallout 3 could never get into it.  However am a very big fan of their games.  Like The Elder Scrolls series.  The game will be out November 10, 2015.  Will be buying a copy for sure.  One of the cool things they are doing for the came comes out.  Is put at a series of very funny videos.  Called the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series.  Special is an acronym for “Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck”.  This are attributes you use to upgrade your character.  So far (as I am typing this Sept 17, 2015) they have put out two videos.  One for Strength and Perception.  They are animated and funny as hell.  But all so very helpful to those you might not have played any of these games before.  You can see the two (so far) > here and here or below.
