    What are you talking about? Fallout 2 and New Vegas canonized choices in Fallout 1 and Fallout 2. What, actually canonizing choices are a bad thing now?

    Hopefully this'll just remind everyone how Obsidian did everything better.

    At least fast food is cheap compared to a nice restaurant... Bethesda is as expensive as a really fancy restaurant but serves the same Burger and chips (fries for those that don't speak Aussie/British I guess :drummer:) but with less flavour than McDonalds.

    Far Harbor sounded mildly interesting until they mentioned the Children of Atom. Also the Mechanist has something to do with the Silver Shroud crap.

    I'm not surprised. The game is all quantity and no quality so of course they would go for the "biggest landmass" rather than "good writing."

    I'm calling it - this DLC is going to tie into Cabot House somehow, or aliens.

    Just noticed another funny thing about this announcement.
    Obviously, "more than $60 worth of content" is marketing bullshit, but that's even more to that. Let's do some quick calculations.
    Today they've announced DLC priced 9.99, 4.99 and 24.99, which makes a total of roughly $40.

    60-40=20
    Ta-da! One can only imagine the incredible content that they'll release for the remaining 20 bucks, considering the price tags for the DLC packs they've announced today. Since the only story-based pack is priced $25, it probably means that all you get for your season pass is even more horse <s>shit</s> armor.

    I can envision them releasing another set of 9.99, 4.99 and 24.99 DLCs. $80 of value for just $60(or $30 IF YOU BUY RIGHT NOW!), the only thing stopping me from running out and getting the season pass is another settlement needs my help.

    Bethesda never canonizes choices, so yes in a Bethesda Fallout where your actions have little to no consequences going back and making the players choices matter even less is a bad thing.

    Be sure to offer help to anyone who needs it. That can only help our cause!

    Laughable DLC.

    Maybe I'm alone here, but DLC should be about new storylines and not new gameplay features. Because I'm having a really, really hard time to understand how two out of those three DLCs didn't make it into the original game, especially when one of them has been a FO3 and FNV mod.

    So glad my brother could get a refund for FO4 and the season pass, I wouldn't play this crap even if my computer could run it.

    Yep, I am still in love with this one. The last light of a setting sun, the ruins and remnants of a long dead past, our main character alone on the road heading towards an unknown and uncertain future.
    Dammit, now I want to replay Lonesome Road again.

    Unrelated to the topic, but:



    I downloaded Mojave Music Radio Expanded, and that song was surprisingly fitting.

    I can't stand DLC, it's one of the many things that is wrong with the games industry, but I do like the cover art for Far Harbour

    If players actually stopped buying DLC and told the companies to Foxtrot Oscar, things would change.
    If nobody buys it the games companies will stop making dlc, wishful thinking I know.

    DLC can be good, but not when is this kind of peace meal thing on a game that is already lacking in any subtantial content and whose mechanics are so barebones. Far Harbor is the kind of DLC they should make more of, at least in theory (I don't doubt the story will be as terrible as that of the main game).
    The worst part of this is that they are basically trying to coerce people into buying the Season Pass by threatening them with a price increase, that souldn't be allowed, it's so sleazy but they are trying to word it as that being a good thing. It's already bad enough that their games are 50% more expensive over here for no reason whatsoever.

    Also lol at the fact that the Worshop one is literary a Slavery Pack DLC.

    There's nothing wrong with DLC conceptually. Done right it's simply the modern day equivalent of the expansion packs you used to buy for games as far back as the 90s. Done wrong it's blatant nickle-and-diming of consumers for features that should either have been in the game from release or added with a patch.

  18. The Fart Harbor one MAYBE is going to be good, if it is Dead Money-like: actually using your skills (not literally here), your tinkering and survival abilities and forcing you to use a different playstyle, and even using the survival mode.
    But it's going to be a lousy faction clash from Dragonborn/Point Lookout.
    Btw, has nobody noted the cheesy Goosebumps books-like art of the "cover"?

    Of note is that Far Harbor only mentions new Weapons and Armor to make you stronger, no mention of Perks or anything like that, so they realize they also fucked themselves over with the stupid Perk Chart thing and the No Level Cap thing.

    The only expansion I ever bought for a video game was GTA - London. I'm against DLC, I feel as though I am being cheated out of the full game when it comes to DLC. I've been sorely tmpted to buy the DLC for the Bioshock Games, but decided to hold my ground. I'm not forking over over all that money for something I will rarely play.

    Bought New Vegas from my local game shop for £5 ($7.13), played it a dozen times
