    They really should make ammo weigh nothing, especially missiles and mini nukes.

    Was very weird ingame to be presented with a hidden mini nuke and the first thing I do is to just throw the goddamn thing away.

    Also, you actually shouldn't pick up every foodstuff you can find. That shit gets heavy. Stims and radaways and so on are heavy enough.

    I always take the perks that make food and chems weigh like 90% less. Just easier and I never have to decided how many of what chems to carry around and stuff.

    Also, make sure you get rid of spoiled food, it can add a lot of weight

    Finally doing that evil Fallout 4 Children of Atom playthrough.

    Only took me a million years, glad I waited though. Sim Settlement Conqueror is going to help me turn the commonwealth into one big crazy nuclear family.

    Don't forget you can turn it into fertilizer though and get abit of XP out of it.

    Did anyone ever make a really good all in one fallout 4 mod? I know some like horizon but it seems to change a whole lot, and I have heard good things about Unbogus Fallout Overhaul but it doesn’t seem as comprehensive.

    Its already been five years since Fallout 4 launched.

    God, I'm gonna be an old man by the time 5 will get here. Hopefully Starfield is amazing.

    If wastelanders is half way decent that would probably lift fallout 76 up to fallout 5 status...

    I already enjoy it a lot, the multiplayer stuff is pretty much blatantly extraneous (the main effect it has on me right now is every once in a while I have to move my camp a bit because someone is in my spot.) but it holds up quite well as a single player 3d fallout game from a gameplay and exploration perspective, it just needs a bit more plot.

    Sorry but that's not how I play Fallout.

    If it's something that can be picked up, it belongs in my pants. Pockets. Pants pockets.

    I might do another Fallout 4 play through when the new consoles arrive.

    Assuming it gets patched, it’ll look amazing in 4K, 60 FPS, HDR, etc,

    Will it though? I mean with all the extra mods to add stuff the engine doesn't do by default I am sure it can look great. But seeing the same drab color scheme in HD doesn't sound very appealing to me.

    I get the feeling that it won't have enough content for that. Maybe in a year or two if they keep pumping out Wastelanders style content.

    Wastelanders might just be about ten hours with abit of faction grinding, more of a new MSQ than a massive overhaul of the world. I don't think that'll be able to satisfy a lot of people but we'll see how it turns out. I've tried to avoid a lot of gameplay videos about it to avoid spoiling it for myself.

    HDR alone adds a surprising boost to visual quality. Lighting and colours become so much more vivid.

    When I got my 4K tv, I was surprised to find it was the hdr that made games look so good, even more than the to 4K that some games got.

    Everything they've been saying is that Wastelanders is pretty damn big, but advertising is all lies, so who knows?

    I’d love a nice 20+ hour main quest which is what I’m expecting. I’m not expecting new lands or enemies or the like other than humans. I am pretty happy with fallout 76 as is, so I’m not expecting an overhaul, just some actual guys other than robots and zombies to interact with.

    I need that damn extra storage (I'm not too proud, I'll pay for that shit and enable them) but I'm not going to let Sony gouge me too every month on top of it.

    FO76 has the best story out of any of the FO games. It actually felt dark, hopeless, and tragic. It tells a great story that weaves a bunch of disparate groups together, all of whom failed to face the threats a radioactive wasteland threw at them. It has the most sweeping, interconnected narrative of all the FO games, and by far does the best job of painting an actual world. The characters and stories are amazing, and it was a pretty incredible feat to pull of without having any conversation breaks with talking heads. The way the story unfolds as you uncover what happened to the different parts of West VA society as you move across the map is again, amazing.

    It was a refreshing departure from the tired FO formula of you being the special chosen one who has amnesia, ventures through the wasteland with reskinned copies of the same factions to find out that somehow all the parts of your life you don't remember make you the most important man in the wasteland.

    All things considered it's my favorite FO. So fight me.

    Yeah. It also has the best map design, easier to navigate while still feeling organic to the setting.

    The game’s biggest problem is that the archeological feel of the game combined with the lack of human NPCs and the general nature of being an MMO made the game feel static after awhile. That and I have come to hate Bethesda’s encumbrance systems.

    I had a great time with it as is and am back Day 1 for the update.

    The archeological feel is one reason why I like Fallout so much, though. I like all of those stories they write.

    Exactly. Uncovering bits and pieces of the story always felt good. It gave me that "one more building, one more landmark" type motivation.

    While others wandered to fill their stash with junk, I wandered to filled my soul with lore.

    The stories suffered all the time from "....and then you find their corpse." because that was the only possible ending.

    Otherwise, yeah, they did OK to great story-wise in places.

    I feel like it would be a great story in parallel to a more active story, like honest hearts. It’s all great content and lore and I enjoyed it. Its just a bit like a really great appetizer tray without a main course.

    Wait, I was joking. What do you mean, @Dr. Chaos?

    Oh wait I guess you need a PS Plus subscription to play? I kinda have been taking it for granted that most people are on PC, but that I guess isn't necessarily true.

    edit: OK, I didn't know about Fallout 1st until now. Is that what you mean? That on top of PS Plus, I assume?

    Correct.

    I had been playing Fallout 76 on PS4 since performance wasn't very good on the PC version for me but I'm upgrading my desktop soon so that won't be a problem.

    (replace mats with the name of your text file if you named it something different)

    Voila, you now have 200 of each crafting material in your inventory. Repeat as necessary. You can also change the quantity given in the text file to however much you want.

    So, in other words, it's Bethesda leaning into the kind of storytelling that Bethesda has done best since at least Morrowind (I haven't played any of the games before that, so can't judge): scattered around in in-world books and pamphlets and notes?

    And little dioramas, yes.

    Their main quests continue to be ass, but that's like saying "Bethesda's games are buggy on release"; it's expected, practically part of the brand.

    FO76's main quest wasm't that bad, but that's because it was almost literally "we will go around the whole map, eventually"
