    Agree with Kalniel.

    I do feel the dialogue is awful, very basic options like Yes/No/Don't Know/Sarcastic all laid out so one option is easy to press with a controller. Think I would have preferred less speech and more comprehensive written dialogue. Also some people where the option exists to speak just grunt and don't say anything at all even if you have just saved them or something.

    Definitely feels more like a console port than a PC game that gets ported to consoles.

    Left University and currently unemployed - no fallout anytime soon that's for sure!! I've even resisted the temptation to pirate it, because of how much I like the franchise and respect the developers a lot

    Re: War... War never changes (who's playing FO4?)

    I find it fun - I did notice some of the metacritic user reviews have been spammed by the same people posting in both console and PC sections. I do think some PC gamers have too many first world problems,and the whining about graphics....meh! I could understand if Bethesda started saying it was going to be the next Crysis,but they never did,but once we knew it was Creation based MONTHS ago,it was quite obvious how it would look. But TBH,I find its perfectly fine for what it is.

    However,my main issues are the fact that the main character seems to walk very slowly,even when lightly loaded,which gets grating after a while and the DOG NPC is annoying as it gets in the way at times due to the way the command menu is orientated.

    I do also prefer the older style menus for dialogue,and they do need to work on the animations more too!!

    Re: War... War never changes (who's playing FO4?)

    Playing it on PS4, loving it! got it yesterday and played about 4hrs last night, it's very much the same old stuff but shinier, which is what I wanted I guess!

    Performance is 'ok' few slow downs as is being reported everywhere. So far I've not wandered more than a short distance from the starting position but there's plenty to do, I did struggle with how to exit power armour for ages to the extent I had to Google how to do that! Not sure I'm OK with its battery running low rather than just scavenging armour in the wasteland but it does add a new element to how you use it.

    I'll be playing more tonight

    Ahh, I really want to play this, but due to time constraints I will have to wait another week or two. At least any major bugs should hopefully be patched out by the time I play it

    Yeah, I wondered why when I looked on Amazon there were 5 star reviews for PS4/XBox and 1 star for PC - lots of people with rural internet or monthly bandwidth restrictions (including one person with a 15GB monthly limit) having major problems with only being sent 1/5th of the game!

    I think one of the first mods I make will be a change to that system. Maybe a quest for an ever lasting fusion cell, or a devise to recharge them in the workshop or something.

    It is a bit of a pain, you can still fast travel with it being dead but in the middle of battle of out exploring it could cause problems.

    It seems the engine has had a bigger overhaul than people thought:

    http://gamegpu.ru/rpg/rollevye/fallout-4-test-gpu.html

    Look at the CPU scaling tests!! The game is reasonably well threaded it appears!!

    Caps lock toggles "always run" (run, not sprint - it doesn't drain your AP). I have had it toggle the wrong way sometimes, especially if I switch between windows.

    I'm enjoying it overall but I agree that a lot of the controls are odd - the base building stuff is really turning me off though to be honest I'm not sure that's just the controls. I also really wish they'd display the actual dialogue choices rather than just the type of response too.

    Oh and it's running fine with everything at max on my GTX 970 at 1080. I've actually had it running on my monitor (1680x1050 - 16:10) and my TV (1920x1080 - 16:9). Works fine on both but you have to reset the config between them otherwise it crashes when you launch it (it wants to use a made-up 16:10 or 16:9 resolution).

    I've not seen that yet, lots of mist though!

    I've been avoiding the settlement building as it is apparently a bit pointless (well at least as pointless as any video game) still not got to Diamond city or whatever it's called, loving it still

    Me. Got about 27 hours in so far and on level 18. Played until 5am on release day then went to work.

    Mr Burnout has also purchased this on her PS4. PC looks so much better.

    I actually think it's better in every way to previous games. Big Fan of the Franchise and I really cannot see nothing wrong with it. If it ain't broke, then no need to fix it.

    My R9 280x runs it at ultra fine with godrays turned to low. average 55fps. Drops a little in built up areas. Looks amazing though.

    Will be on this for a while.

    I'm enjoying it, settlement building is reasonably satisfying, although kind of annoying you can't put up internal walls/doors without farting around a lot. That being said, my 10 storey bar/hostel/mall/powerstation complete with machine gun turrets, lasers and power armor garage is kind of fun.

    Re: War... War never changes (who's playing FO4?)

    I haven't played it as much as I would have liked, been split between this and Starcraft II but doing ok so far, have been to Diamond City and its nice to see some side quests from interacting with different people, power armour I haven't used much as the cores run out pretty quick.

    Re: War... War never changes (who's playing FO4?)

    Eeks, 53 hours according to Steam... But quite a bit of that has been messing around with character builds and Sanctuary. Reasonably far into the main story, next mission is taking me far South which is apparently filled with 30+ mobs, so as I am only level 21 I'll have to level up a bit. In fact, quite a few of my side missions for BoS and Minutemen are in level 30+ areas too. Kind of a bit stuck where to go right now.

    Quite enjoying my current build, although I could definitely use a bit more HP/resistance. Mainly use stealth and a silenced sniper, also have a really nice silenced, unlimited 10mm pistol. One thing that annoys me about stealth play though is that if you fire at a group of mobs from a long distance and whilst hidden, the whole group immediately charge at you and start firing. Other than that, it's pretty good.

    Haven't used power armour too much, was a bit concerned about Fusion Cores not being rechargeable and fairly rare. However I currently have over 30 in my inventory, so I could start using them more I guess. Only have two right now (the T-45 you get early on and the BoS one), and not modded them much either. Need more SPECIAL points for that!

    I really want to try a stealth melee build, saw a clip of someone using VATS to take out a whole group in melee, looked awesome. Also seen another video of someone one shotting a high level Deathclaw. The damage modifiers you can get are insane (Big Leagues +200%, Rooted +25%, Ninja +400%, Blitz - not a damage modifier but allows you to use VATS for melee at a greater distance, Bloody Mess +15%).

    BTW, I'm playing survival, so many legendary mobs and drops it's not funny!

    Really need to find some level 21 friendly areas!

    I found cores hard to get at first but now I have about 8, I don't want to use them though so I'm saving big them for bigger battles, I still don't like that I'm forced to do this.

    Mucked about with building last night, still not "getting it" though.

    Traders, where are they all? I've on my found one so far that has a pitiful amount of caps and I have a TON of stuff to sell just sitting in a locker in sanctuary.

    And radscorpians, seriously, they're kicking my arse, what's with them?!
