ShogunRok commented on Review: Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop (PS4):

@sub12 At the end of the day it's just not what people play Fallout for, I suppose. I think it's clear that Bethesda was partly going after the Twitch streamer / Minecraft crowd, letting players create crazy things and bragging about their settlements on the internet.

I think there's an argument to be made in that Bethesda spread itself too thin. It tried to capture the best of both worlds - the Fallout experience people have come to expect and the more "casual" kind of "wow, it's like Minecraft!" experience. In the end, neither side of the game is really as strong as it could be.

That said, I do still think Fallout 4 is a great game, and I still play it. Heck, I've spent tens of hours making settlements - and I usually hate crafting in games. But even then, all this settlement-based DLC is just a touch too much for me.

I think Nuka World has to be something really special, otherwise Fallout 4's DLC will seem pretty weak in hindsight. Compared to Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I think it's been rather poor.

@LieutenantFatman Yeah, you can buy stuff like mounts for premium currency. Now and again, you also get loot drops in the form of 'boxes' and they contain randomised premium stuff, but you need to buy keys to open them.

And I think you can have up to 5 party members at one time, including yourself.

@kyleforrester87 I had no problems just selling everything that wasn't cooking ingredients (which are highlighted green). Everything you sell is counted up in the total anyway, so I don't believe there's any need to save things for later.

@belmont As people have said, it'll take you anywhere from 20 to 30 hours to complete, depending on how much grinding you do for experience and materials. There's also some optional stuff to get through, but nothing too significant. It's not the longest RPG ever, but I think it's a pretty fitting length overall as it doesn't outstay its welcome.

And nah, I doubt we're going to see the Vita version in the West at this point.

ShogunRok commented on You Need to Be at Least Level 20 For Fallout 4...:

@Kidfried Sorry I took so long to get back to you. Put frankly, I don't think Fallout 4's DLC has been that great. I've personally enjoyed most of it, but for the current season pass price I think it's a reasonably tough sell. That said, Nuka World could end up being really good. We'll have to see.

I think if you really enjoy Fallout you'll probably get enough value for your money for the season pass - especially if you find yourself crafting more often than not - but if that's not the case, then I'd recommend waiting for Nuka World to launch, and then waiting for a season pass price drop.

Hope that helps!

ShogunRok commented on Furi's Feverishly Brilliant Soundtrack Is Now ...:

@ekreig I think this one's felt the benefits of being a licensed soundtrack from existing artists - a good way to help promote their own music as well as the game. It's true, though - I'd love to have all of the original Final Fantasy soundtracks on music services like Spotify, for example.

@Kidfried At this point you're probably better off waiting for the inevitable Game of the Year edition which will no doubt be announced in time for the holidays or early next year.

Or, if you've already got the base game, I'd hazard a guess that the season pass will go on sale at some point in the future.

@DominicanGlory You say this site's a joke, yet you always come back to criticise what we do. I've warned you about derailing comments in the past and yet you persist. Feel free to come back when you're ready to show some respect.
