I have to admit, I am probably further along in this game after playing it yesterday than I ever got in Fallout 3. I basically got to the supermarket right at the start of FO3 and then went off and did my own thing for a few hours, then restarted. Again and again and again. On the plus side, lots of people complaining that this is just more of the same, and I don't really know the old game well enough to be bothered by that. I actually really like it.
My main thoughts:
- It seems like most of the missions so far are just: "Oh, X is in trouble. Go and kill some bad guys that are threatening X." I think I will head to Diamond City soon in the hope of something different.
- I have absolutely no idea what is going on with the settlement building. All I know is that I need "circuitry" to do anything, and I don't have it. It's basically a less accessible version of Fallout Shelter.
- Making my own character able to speak has added a lot, and I love the details, like the robots not figuring out what has gone on. I have nerfed my own character by making him a charming nerd though, and I'm having to waste a lot of perks on pumping up the Ability stats.
- As far as I can see, my weapons don't detioriate any more. Does this mean that there is absolutely no point in carrying more than one of each gun?
Is there ever a reason NOT to be in your power armour? Absorb way more damage, take no fall damage, carry more shit, customize it with red flames and look a fucking boss. Is the game pretty designed that you will allways be using it? It's hard to see a downside.
There are only a limited number of the power core things that power those suits in the world, once they're gone, they're gone, and you can no longer use power armour at all. I do hope you've not been burning through them on relatively easy parts when you should be saving them for trickier bits I intend to keep my power armour stored away and only use it as an absolute last resort, for a particularly hard mission or whatever.
Yeah there's fuck loads of traders in DC. Some of them sell some killer items, like 14,000 worth of torso armour and special weapons. I need a loan.I just passed through Diamond City on my way to my last quest. Fucking bedlam init Gunshots, mutants and raiders everywhere. Also stumbled upon 1 of those Yao Guai, shot at it naturally... big ol' pile of nope those things.
Finally found a trader earlier and sold on most of my unwanted weapons and armour. Sitting at around 2 thousand caps atm I think. Takes traders 2 days to get more caps, for anyone wondering.
The thing is I nail the locks on the first or 2nd go, I've just not seen any pins drop, like, anywhere. Must just be unlucky.I didn't hang around long in DC, didn't really find anything. Only had pipe rifle ammo and some molotovs with me so didn't fancy squaring up to anything. Just been fast travelling between Sanctuary and the robot garden place to sell things for the last hour or so. I feel a bit underpowered atm tbh.
Weird. I've had 20 something bobby pins on me since the first couple hours of gameplay. Haven't found them in too many places but when i do it's generally a stash of 5+. Probably worth quicksaving before you pick if you're low on pins.
I didn't use it at all, but then I got stuck at Cortege Plant or something, full of raiders and turrets. I found it really hard, so went and got my armour and absolutely breezed it.
Hot plates and any old electronic items usually give circuitsI thought that plant really knocked things up a notch as well. I walked through a door on to a stairway, took a potshot at the nearest guy and immediately had seven bad guys using me for target practise and explosives testing. Dogmeat was great at blocking the door/my escape as well, so I died. Again and again and again. Then I hit upon a great strategy of going in, firing randomly, and letting two or three raiders follow me outside to be picked off.
Those mutant things are quick as well, aren't they. Bloody hell.
Thanks for the help, veteran Fallout'ers.
Seriously though where can I find this circuitry scrap that I'm apparently desperate for?
I get hit by a rocket and it's goodnight vienna. Also don't have enough dps to bring down the suicide one in time. I'll re-visit it later after a few more levelsAye, managed to clear it last night. Stayed well away on a nearby hill with a long range weapon to clear the outside, not so bad once you get inside. There's 2 bodies on the bridge near the plant you should loot if you haven't already.
