Fallout 4: Starting Over

June 18th, 2017

I’m not the kind of guy who plays games over and over and over again in quick succession.  I think I’ve played through Fallout 3 two or three times and I’ve only gone through New Vegas once.  But sometimes things break, even though they shouldn’t, and you just have to start over.

So now I’ve restarted Fallout 4 from scratch, sort of, and I’m going to see if I can do it differently than I did last time.

Game Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015)

April 4th, 2017

I reviewed the first of the Tomb Raider reboot games a while ago and I knew they were putting out a new one, I just completely forgot about it until recently when I picked it up.  I thought the first game was pretty decent and had about the same expectations this time around.  I actually like these games more as shooters than they are platformers, although they still have that element to them, but I’m more of an FPS guy than a puzzle solving guy anyhow.  So did this game make any improvements from the first?  Read on to find out.

Why I Hate Fantasy RPGs

March 19th, 2017

I’ve been listening to a lot of roleplaying podcasts lately and one thing that I always notice when someone is playing D&D or Pathfinder or some other fantasy system, at least when they’re playing them seriously, is that I really lose interest very quickly. I’m fine when they’re playing for laughs, but when they want the listener to take what they’re doing seriously, I just can’t do it. Fantasy roleplaying, to me at least, is a complete waste of time and here’s why.

Which Fallout Has the Best Music?

December 25th, 2016

I don’t know how this came up in my mind, but I was listening to the theme for Fallout 4 and started to try to remember how all of the previous Fallout themes went.  I’m not a huge fan of music in general, but I know that when I was playing Skyrim, I used to listen to the soundtrack in the car a lot.  The theme for that game is amazing and I feel the same about the theme for Fallout 4.  So I asked myself which one was best and had to go back and revisit all of them.  Therefore, here they all are.  Let me know which one you like the best!

Why I Support the Institute in Fallout 4

November 29th, 2016

I never really got the paranoia of the Institute in Fallout 4.  In fact, the Institute seems to be one of the only decent factions in the game, if you want to look at it realistically. Yet when I say I favor the Institute, even other Fallout 4 players get upset with me because they’re supposed to be “evil”.  But why are they evil?  Why are they worse than anyone else in the game?  Let’s look at that, shall we?
