Fallout 4 – Completed

It's an enjoyable game but feels all too familiar, the main campaign is not that satisfying especially the ending & only a few of the sidequests offer a new experience.

It's a much more reliable release though, I had a few crashes & graphical glitches but much less than the previous games on the 360.

I've completed the ending for Brotherhood of Steel & part way through the Railroad ending not sure I can muster the enthusiasm at the moment to see it through, after playing it for quite a bit over the xmas break I need to just step away from gaming at the moment.

Overall not bad but certainly not game of the year.




Fallout 4 – Companions



I've put in nearly 60+ hours into the game now & barely touched the main questline, I do however have quite a few companions in Codsworth, Dogmeat, Garvey, Piper, Valentine, Strong & Danse.

I used Codsworth for a while because I liked his sense of humour, did not get on with Garvey because he was giving me too many new settlement quests & accuracy was poor with his laser rifle. Valentine is good but you can't give him any armour to equip, he will only wear his detective outfit. Strong is a Super Mutant & I've not really used him at all. Danse I hate, in fact the Brotherhood of Steel seem like real twats in this game. I've stuck with Piper for now & given her my combat rifle & old combat armour. Also she seems to be built like a Terminator who can survive explosions.

I've moved my home base & all companions to Red Rocket to limit the amount of time I spend on settlements having to deal with settler related issues. I'd rather spend my time exploring the wasteland.

Fallout 4 – Combat



I've done quite a few quests now & have switched out my companion to use Preston Garvey. I've made a quick video to show the combat against a group of raiders,

I like the way the enemies now flank you but with a high perception & agility my accuracy on the weapon is very good so I very rarely tend to miss any shots. I always use vats to attack, I'm not playing it like a FPS game but an RPG & like decide which part of the enemy to attack. For raiders I tend to go for head & on ghouls legs to slow them down.

Settlement building & management can become a bit of chore so I've toned that part of the game down a bit to focus on exploring the wasteland & completing quests.

I will do a video shortly showing the two houses I have built in Sanctuary for the settlers & myself.

New Game – Fallout 4

Sorry MGSV will have to wait for now, Fallout 4 feels very familiar to the previous Fallout 3 & New Vegas games which is not a bad thing because I enjoyed both of those games.

Some slight refinements in control & level upgrades with the introduction of a minecraft style settlement base building mode are the only changes I have noticed so far.

Console sharing with the boys has limited my time in wandering the wasteland, there seems to be a lack of a tutorial so I have been following the in-built help menu & various tips on youtube to figure out base building, not sure if it plays an important part in the game but I have been clearing up Sanctuary Hills & building new homes, power, defences & resource gathering food/water.

My character is level 6 at the moment & focused on perception & agility to increase the vats accuracy & ap points. I have gone for the lockpick, hacking & gun nut perks the other points I have spent on upgrading the SPECIAL stats.

Will get back on the main quest this weekend & head over to Concord.

Fallout Shelter – Completed (iOS)

Having reached the 200 dweller limit, I spent some time on moving rooms around the vault & below is a screenshot of my full vault. Just got a bit more charisma training to go on my character before he is fully maxed out on all stats.


Fallout Shelter – Vault Limit (iOS)

I've hit the 200 Dwellers vault limit, with not much else to do I'm focussing on levelling up my character to max in all stats & re-organising my vault into sections for electric, food & water production.

Hopefully a future update might add more to the game.

Fallout Shelter – Level 50


Still playing but only really spending five minutes in the morning & evening checking in to see how my wasteland wanderers are doing & if I need to recall them back to the vault. I managed to hit the level cap of 50 with Dr. Li so she is now just looking after the vault door ensuring it is regularly serviced & keeping the raiders away.

Fallout Shelter – Nuka Cola Factory


Finally made it to 100 dwellers & built a Nuka Cola Factory, annoyingly you need high endurance to work in the factory so I have sent off four dwellers to the training room & only have two working in the factory at the moment. Not much else to do now except upgrade the existing rooms & increase the number of dwellers in the vault, game could really do with an update.
