I don't know whether or not I should skip school and work to play Fallout 4 tomorrow.

Mario Maker is where it's at right now.

Mario Maker is damn good. I should boot up my roommate's Wii U sometime this week.

SnC is in turmoil for at least a month now. :(

Meh, watched the beginning, the vault part was much shorter than Fallout 3.
Pretty much all i wanted to see.

If I had a Wii U, I would be playing the shit out of Super Mario Maker.
But, alas, I do not.

Nobody around here is equally hyped about LotV...

[Looks up what LotV stands for]
Oh hey, they're finally finishing Starcraft II. :P

As much as I am interested in Fallout 4, I don't like the fact that my YouTube feed now contains nothing else. I'd rather experience the game myself when I get the chance to play it than watch other people do so.

its got an endless line of red reviews on steam, i think that means it is different from the previous titles. Looking thru it, I noticed recurring themes of 'only 4 dialog choices at almost all times', 'crappy console port', 'wasteland cod', 'OP stuff early' and stuff. Looks like it had been dumbed down for the kids with lots of features removed. Nobody was impressed by the building feature. Discuss?

It's been a downward spiral ever since Bethesda acquired the franchise.

It's 78% positive reviews on Steam, 2much.

There are some things I don't like about it; I prefer the old dialogue system, for example, but overall I'm loving it. The combat feels great, the world is expansive and interesting, the AI is much improved and the crafting and building aspects are surprisingly robust.

It's far, far too easy on normal difficulty, but once I ramped it up to hard it feels much more like New Vegas did on hardcore mode. Much more fun and challenging. There are fights you literally just can't win unless you play it super smart, and I love that. On normal difficulty I wasn't even considering whether I could take a fight or not - I just went in as a one-man-army all the time and never had any trouble.

Also something I think has been largely looked over is the sound design. The sound effects are vastly, vastly improved. Every surface feels unique and real, and bullets whizzing by your head are exhilarating!

17 hours in, still very, very much enjoying it. Occasional bugs are frustrating and require a restart, but it's not been enough to prevent me enjoying it.

If you liked Fallout 3 and New Vegas, you'll like this. If you didn't, you won't. Simple.

I have a few friends that loved New Vegas and hated Fallout 4 so...
