    I don't get how that shit is supposed to work, if it does at all. Settlement happiness just decreases when I am not there, people in Sanctuary Hills are complaining about lack of beds but there are more Beds than people in that fucking place, they have all the food and water they could ever ask for and I set up a bunch of supply routes but none of the settlements actually reach max happniess ever, some Settlements tell me there are 19 people in there but I can barely find 6 people... It just works, of course...

    Provisioners count as settlers I believe even if they are not there. So do companions I think. Happiness has a lot to do with furnishing your town with working lights, stores, defenses, furniture, etc.

    There are a couple of easy and quick ways to go about maxing happiness if you care enough to look, but I doubt you do. ;)

    I guess I'll just make a bunch of those moth devoured couches. Altho no idea why Sanctuary is hurting for beds when there are 27 beds and 20 settlers...

    Fallout 4 teaches it's peers by not following in its shameless shallow attempts to cash in on Minecraft fans, Borderland fans and Elder Scroll fans and actually make a game that follows and adhere to it's own world.

    As Tolkien once said. "Secondary belief is a necessity for internal consistency and the continuation of suspension of disbelief, once that belief is broken, the art has failed and you are back in the primary world."

    As Tim Cain said eloquently. "I'm here to explore the ethics of a post-nuclear wasteland, not to make a better plasma gun."

    It's pretty hilarious how easy itis to find the top tier melee and unarmed weapons in the game, especially Unarmed, as you could just move to salem, do the Devil's Due quest and bam, done, OR just go , top right of the map and find the location yourself.

    Most fun I have had with this game on the 40+ hours I have played it.

    Altho... Chienese Ghouls again... Fallout 4 is such a rehash of Fallout 3, is kind of ridiculous.

    Would this be considered somewhat accurate?

    If you play Fallout 4 you will know that all the "good" parts are shown in the trailers... Seriously all of them, but maybe 1 or 2.

    We're comparing it to Fallout 1 & 2 as well as New Vegas but they're comparing it to Fallout 3? Wow, to be honest New Vegas should've been Fallout 3 and Fallout 3 should've been Fallout: POS 2. :lol:

    Synths infiltrate settlements and decrease happiness.

    Also the mods for improved dialog and disabling the voiced protagonists are must haves.

    Ok, so I'm not the only one having that problem with the decreasing happiness. Fucking annoying. Sanctuary Hills has a fucking beer brewing robot with all beer recipes, their fucking happiness should be through the roof! I even built 'em a fucking outdoor bar because you can't move Buddy to a different place in Sanctuary...

    Just another reason Bethesda sucks. Even their good ideas are fucked up.

    My little review will come soon now that I finished all the "content". The design flaws in this game are through the roof. It really feels rushed in a way that is worse than usual for Bethesda. Sure, the game is relatively stable so it can be beaten, but boy does it run like shit. That janky piece of shit engine is on it's last legs. This will be known as the one where Bethesda jumped the shark by all their hardcore fans. The older (or slightly more monocled) fans know Morrowind (some even say Daggerfall) to be the one that jumped the shark (or cliff racer perhaps) but we will let the youngsters stick to their fantasies. :)

    I think I'm going to write a Steam review eventually but at the moment I can't be bothered as I'm worn out from shitting on it and playing Deus Ex with this amazing GMDX mod. Oh I still have to finish Fallout 4 if I can ever muster up the strength to pick it up again. I've have better games to play as of late. *laughs*

    My review is on hold until January because we realized we needed better microphones and maybe a Capture Card.

    PC, but Shadowplay is having some weird hiccups with the video, and I don't think it's wise to force try and record directly with the PC while running a game that is so poorly optimized.

    Hiccups as in framerate drops or something else?

    Hiccups as in the video just turns into green squares at random and the audio skips. Also Shadowplay doesn't seem consistent wit video length, sometimes it will record for 30 minutes at a time, giving me a good length of video, other times it will just record a bunch of 9 minute videos without me doing anything different.

    I've had that problem myself where one of my test run videos happened to be seperated into two videos for some odd reason. On another note I found a comment from someone stating that "Fallout 1 and 2 is boring and that Fallout 4 is a technical piece of art" in a nutshell <- LOL. I want to post the comment but I shouldn't, besides it's very painful to read.
