Haven't bought it yet, looney. Fallout3 was one of my favourite games but could never replay it on Windows7. Just want to hear some impressions of the game before I pull out my credit card. Besides, still have a lot of leaves to rake. Starting a new game would totally destroy that ambition. fall

I thought the game was being released on November 10th, but I could be wrong.

Steam allows you to download the game now; it will get unlocked on the 10th (or 11th). I downloaded it just now, so it will be ready to play soon!

Mentats, anyone?

That review seemed pretty darned positive.

I really hope the game is as good as Fallout 3.

Well, all the advertising is saying that it's their (Bethesda's) most ambitious games yet. They pulled developers off other projects to work it. The Fallout franchise has really turned into a profitable venture for them. I have three wishes for this game:

1. That the character development tree is easier to track and more meaningful then F3
2. That there is some actual gauge for character alignment progress other than "cutsie" Fallout Boy illustrations
3. That the main quest arc isn't as brief as past Bethesda games

Is that too much to ask? lol

I pre-ordered Fallout 4 on PlayStation - unlocked at midnight, just in time for the day-one patch installation to kick in. So I went to sleep!

Luckily, I've got Wednesday off for the sole purpose of playing the game. Can't wait!

So, first off, the character creation screen is pretty cool.

You can choose a male or female character from a married couple who are standing in the bathroom of their home, presumably admiring themselves in the mirror. You can customize your character to quite an extent but I didn't bother too much, with the exception of some makeup changes, since in the pre-generated faces I found a sultry dark-haired vamp who looks just about perfect for a roaming hero in the post-war wasteland. I'm amused by the thought of her tooling around with her perfectly groomed hair and her over-the top makeup; Chanel-red lipstick and 1960's-style cat eyeliner.

I was also amused by "my" hunky husband (who I had also customized a wee bit so that he could keep up with his trophy wife) making comments like, "absolutely gorgeous" or, "beauuutiful" while my character applied her makeup at my commands.

I quit at that point because my laptop seems to want to cycle down its battery and charge it up again, so more later once the game actually starts.

Man, what a time suck. I've spent the last two and a half hours just building things in my two settlements.

I seem to be carting around lots of crjunk, too. And I have a doggie. But the doggie is really not much good in a fight, at least so far.

I guess you can store stuff in containers and come back for it. I'm going to find one in the Museum and fill it with the really borderline stuff I've found.

The game runs flawlessly, though I am finding the interface a bit clunky.

As far as gameplay goes, so far the game is...Fallout. Again. And that is very much a good thing.
