Fallout 4 Offers Many Different Play Styles, Romance Options and Much More

Published

Bethesda RPG games like Skyrim are all about giving the player options, and Fallout 4 is no exception. At QuakeCon 2015, the developer revealed some amazing new details about the open-world, post-apocalyptic game that will make you wish you were playing it now.

“Wherever, whatever, and however you want” is the response Bethesda generally gives when asked about what player will be able to do, where they will be able to go and how they will be able to get things done. In an interview with The Guardian, Fallout 4 Director Todd Howard shared a lot about those details, mentioning that there are so many options that you could even complete the game without killing enemies:

“You can avoid [killing] a lot. I can’t tell you that you can play the whole game without violence – that’s not necessarily a goal of ours – but we want to support different play styles as much as we can.”

While not my cup of tea, this passive, stealth-based style of gameplay has been a favorite of many fans of games, with titles like Skyrim offering players the option to complete the entire journey without killing a single person. We wonder if such a thing can be accomplished in Fallout 4.

The details released at QuakeCon 2015 are more straightforward, revealing just how ambitious Fallout 4 is:

  • The companion system from the previous Fallout games is back, this time giving you over 12 companions to choose from, ranging from robot to human.
  • In-game characters will be able to say and pronounce thousands of names for your character, including names like Marty McFly and Katniss and more hilarious ones like Mr. F***face.
  • Not only can in-game characters say your name, but their internal systems are also rendered, including the skin levels. For instance, Mr. Handy (a robot) was shown with its internal systems already rendered, just in case you ever decide to murder it and watch the gears go flying.
  • There are 275 different variations of 70 perks in the game that correspond to your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. selections.

As for romance in Fallout 4, it is the first Fallout game to give you romantic options, which, unfortunately, are only available with human companions regardless of their gender. It’s a lot like Skyrim, which awarded you for getting married.

Both Fallout 2 and Fallout 3 allowed you to pay for sex with the prostitute Nova, but that can hardly be considered proper romance. The same thing can be said about the ability to flirt in Fallout New Vegas.

Fallout 4 might not have the best graphics you have ever seen, but it is jam-packed with quality continent that will keep you busy for months. What are you looking forward to doing in the game?

This Is Mortal Kombat 11’s Official Cover, What Do You Think?

Published

Mortal Kombat 11 official Cover art with Scorpion

It’s familiar, but different; simpler, but engaging.

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed the official cover art for Mortal Kombat 11, and its of little surprise that it only features Scorpion.

Compared to Mortal Kombat 10, the overall design is brighter and simpler, featuring a yellow, hot background that surprisingly works well with Scorpion’s yellow outfit.

Scorpion’s pose is imposing, and its interesting that NetherRealm chose go with the more modern version of the character rather than the classic one that appeared in the reveal trailer.

Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23, 2019 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

What do you think about the cover art? Better yet, what’s you favorite Mortal Kombat cover art of all time? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Epic Games Store New Return Policy Allows Unlimited Refunds, But…

Published

on

Epic Games Store logo

Gamers get more leniency and a simplified verification process.

Epic has updated the Epic Games Store’s return policy to make it more competitive with other digital storefronts.

With the old policy, you were allowed just two refunds per year, but now everyone has unlimited refunds within 14 days of purchase and with under two hours played.

The Epic Games Store doesn’t have a “self-service” solution, at least not yet, so you will have to go through Customer Support to request a refund.

A change was also made to the verification process for receiving a refund. Customers no longer have to provide their IP address, last four digits of the card used, account creation date, and other information if the return meets the set criteria, though a contact form will still need to be used.

Epic plans to add more regional pricing options to the store. There are currently 30 different regions available, encompassing a total of 130 countries.

Half-Life 2 Co-Writer Eric Wolpaw Has Returned To Valve, But Why?

Published

What could Valve be working on?

After leaving the company in February 2017, Half-Life 2 and Portal co-writer Eric Wolpaw has returned to Valve.

Shack News confirmed the writer’s return after finding his name listed in the credits for Valve card game Artifact. This would mean Wolpaw joined sometime in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Jay Pinkerton, another writer that left with Wolpaw, has also returned to the company, but it’s not known what the two are working on.

Whether its the rumored Half-Life VR or some other project, for Valve to successfully entice two of its writers back into the fold, it must be working on something exciting.

What are the chances it’s Half-Life 3?
