As most of you know, Fallout 4 released a few days. And like any other gamer out there, I’ve been playing it for the past few days.
Despite not really following any news on the game, those last few days waiting for it were way too long. Due to veteran’s day I took off the entire week, it was just a lucky coincidence that the game launched in the same week that I was off and my girlfriend had to work. Or was it… Hmm
Due to the fact that I couldn’t wait for the midnight release on tuesday. I, like many others, connected to a VPN in Australia to have the game unlock for me a bit sooner (11 hours to be exact) so I could play without losing sleep.
There’s been a lot of people talking about Fallout, what they like, what they dislike, lots of reviews, everything you need to know about the game is somewhere out there online. So I don’t really feel like talking about everything.
What I do want to say though, is that I absolutely love it. I currently played about 25 hours total on it, and haven’t even started progressing the main story yet.
It’s been a few years since New Vegas came out and we were able to roam one of the wastelands that came about after the Great War, which started and ended on October 23 2077, for the first time. And we all missed it (or at least most of us did).
I played through Fallout 3 and New Vegas a few times and was looking forward to this instalment of the games.
It does not disappoint at all, unless you’re one of those people that likes to whine about the fact that grafics aren’t what they should be. I have to admit that it’s not like GTA V or The Witcher, but it still looks and play pretty good.
Ghouls terrify me though. I never liked them in the previous games but the Fallout 4 ghouls are like the World War Z zombies. They’re fast when they spot you, and it’s freaky. Every time I come across “corpses” I shoot them again, just in case they suddenly stand up.
Fallout 4 crafting is fun, and if you’re into building, the settlements will take away hours upon hours of your time.
In general, if you liked the previous games, you’ll love this one. Some things have changed, but in the end, all we really want to do; is explore the commonwealth.
Stay tuned o7
