    Mh...seems you are right.

    Oh, don't get me wrong. This new system is dumb, but it makes *some* sense to have the basic offensive abilities as low level perks.

    Hmm that could be fun in Fallout 4 considering your the dad, gonna be disapoint if I don't get to pointlessly kill myself in such a way that it kills my son when he tries to fix the mcguffin I broke to stop the bad guys from doing the same thing I wanted to do anyway.

    If unarmed still has the crit kill animations from Skyrim it'll never get boring, gonna suplex me a Deathclaw. :wiggle:

    Yes, but if I'm reading the perk chart right, each attribute also offers passive bonuses, ie. just having more Strength increases your melee damage, Perception boots your VATS chance to hit, Charisma increases your success rate in dialogue checks, etc. Obviously we don't know how large that bonus is, but say you got 10% bonus melee damage per point of Strength, then you would probably want to max strength out if you have nothing else to spend points on.

    And the problem is that unlike Skyrim, you can't decide to stop leveling up in order to prevent enemies from scaling. So you're going to walk around as a melee character with all the useful perks and 10s across the board and you'll still be climbing in levels.

    Kind of off topic but I forgot to answer something the Innerhfish wondered when that storm on saturday cut my power off, VOSE means "Version original Subtitulada al Español", or just original audio with subs.

    Jeez, that green has been mentioned, it's seriously unbearable.
    I'm not sure whether I'll buy it. Removal of skill system and what I'm reading about dialogue have utterly removed any hopeful curiosity ("it's still FALL-OUT") I could've had left. Weapon/armor modding might about the only thing right now that looks sweet. I just can't wrap my head around the dialogue thing. By now nobody is expecting another Myron, but well, this is just "what kind of vague flavor to I want to give my warrior?"

    I have no idea how the settlement system works, but these things can have a way of getting weird if you're managing a large community with tons of responsibility, but still have to go take care of trivial quests on your main/secondary storyline (something similar was pointed out in several DA - Origins reviews).
    As for games that pull of isometric, not sure if it's been mentioned, but Divinity Original Sin does, and recently also on consoles. Apparently with success.
    Who's excited for Just Cause 3, though?

    The settlement builder is bullshit with no meaning. Because it's Bethesda. Remember marriage?

    That green from that ghoul video hurt my eyes, it reminded me of Oblivion's light spells that made the area it lit a weird green color.

    Morrowind just lightened up everything. I actually enjoyed using it.

    At this rate the next game will have loose game assets(voices, models, ect) with the game engine and they'll say "F*** it you modders can put it together yourselves have fun! For $39.99 extra you can get the Nuka Cola asset pack!".

    There's no way anyone at bethesda would go out of their comfort safe zone and venture here. They wouldn't bear the shock. :P
