    Dude, what’s wrong with Fallout 4? That was a great game.Report

    Just finished Just Cause 3, which was fun, but the ending was kinda lame. I was expecting a brutal boss fight, but I just equipped the games version of a gravity gun and tossed the boss vehicle into the volcano.

    Thinking about starting the new Doom.Report

      OK, started the new (Bethesda) Doom. So far, so fun! Especially with good headphones on, because a lot of locating enemies is by sound, and they do a good job with the sound. I had to fight the urge to turn my actual head as opposed to my avatar head when I heard scrambling behind me.Report

    I impulse-purchased the SNES Classic yesterday, which included a 1-hour wait with 17 other buyers at Gamestop. Went to my best friend’s house after work and had a blast on it. Contra 3 kicked our butts but Donkey Kong Country was pretty fun. Several Street Fighter matches, a little bit of Mario World, all in all a fun experience.

    I have a big work project coming up next spring that will involve several trips to Atlanta with some of my closest coworkers. This will be the perfect item to take along for passing the time at the hotel at night.Report

    Okay, I got it to work.

    It worked after I rebooted and I didn’t have to do anything.

    When it comes to using the trainer, you have to pick something like:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout

    And DO NOT make the “it doesn’t feel like a mistake” mistake of going to something like:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout\DATA\SAVEGAME\SLOT01

    Edit your character and give him all 10s.

    Heck, give yourself some Perks too. I like Awareness, Fortune Finder, Presence, and Scout, but you should figure out how you want to play and check those off. Heck, check off everything. I’m not going to tell you how to cheat.

    But remember to go to the Skills & Traits tab and buff energy weapons, doctor, sneak, barter, gambling, and outdoorsman up to something in the 60s and science, repair, and speech up to something in the 80s before you get going. (Maybe give yourself a trait or two. Heck, you’ve already given yourself some perks, give yourself Gifted! Heck, balance it out with skilled!)

    Or, hey, just play and enjoy. This is one of the great ones.

    God(ess?) Fallout! I remember playing it with my boyfriend, to be husband, in our apartment in the sweltering summer. It was so absorbing, the atmosphere was off the chain. Also the whole artistic conceit? What if 50’s era tech could do the things they imagined it doing? Vacuum tube super computers? Robots? Then they blew that whole world up and made it creepy as fish?
    Yeah it was amazing.

    Also Dogmeat was a precious cinnamon roll killer-diller. Just don’t let him near the force fields.Report

      In Fallout 4, they made him immortal. Why? Because virtually every player playing previous games would reload the game if Dogmeat died. Therefore, letting him die was a bad design. No one would let him stay dead.

      And your companions don’t really alter the game that much — they’re pack-mules, not instant win buttons. 🙂Report

        That’s so cute and cool. And yeah, in 4 they weren’t really that important. Though in fairness as I recall in 4 none of your companions “died” just got incapacitated which could be cured either by healing them in combat or winning the combat at which point they all just would get better.Report
