    This floating robot has an exposed buzzsaw and flamethrower. Robots can malfunction. Accidents can happen. Yet the Fallout 4 protagonist family keeps one in their home and lets it near their baby? That is insanely stupid! The same applies to other Fallout games.

    Wait, all the protagonists in the other games have a Mr Handy and a baby? Shoot I must have missed that bit.

    The Mister Handy Type 2 (seen in the classic Fallout games) do not have the buzzsaw or the flamethrower and are mentioned to be more like repair/handymen type of robots than butlers. Even the way the Type 2 float is better designed, it is two "propeller fans" (I don't know how to describe them better in english), while the type 1 is some jet propulsion system (imagine the damage to the floors, furniture, ground, etc that would cause and how many fires it would start). Even the "arms" in the classic fallout games type 2 are just six arms with a "hand" at the end, so they can grab and operate tools or other objects, while in the type 1 they have three arms but no hands (or do they have one? I can't remember anymore) and I have no idea how they would grab things or do stuff like washing dishes or carrying stuff.
    The butler Mr Handy (Type 1) is a Bethesda creation and makes no sense.

    Funny how nearly Mr. Handy and Mr. Gutsy you encounter in Fo3 and FoNV has gone feral and will attack you on sight. Funny how Codsworth didn't.
    The English butler voice for Mr. Handy in Fo3/Fo4 sounded great IMO. The butler voice Obsidian made was awful.

    Fallout 1-2 Mr Handies are more like technicians, workmen, and arent much better armed than a strong guy with metal fists.

    It was Fallout 3-4 which went fucking retarded and gave butlers flamethrowers and buzzsaws.

    Much like Beth game, those Mr Handy were made to be sold, not to actually satisfy the customer.

    You have a problem with the buzzsaw? Don't worry, buy the attachable saw cover, just for $5.99!
