Fallout 4 came out a couple of days ago. I initially thought of getting the PS4 version of Fallout. Then I realized that since mods will probably come out first on PC, I ended up getting the PC version at my local favorite game store. I could have gotten it from Steam, which retails for PhP2,670, but I decided to get the box with DVD + Game Key instead. It’s cheaper by PhP275, and it includes a DVD, a Steam Key, 1 game poster and Vault-Tec level progression guide.

Anyway, here’s my first 30-minutes gameplay of Fallout 4 for your viewing pleasure. The video may be played in HD 60fps.

Here are 5 Things I discovered while playing Fallout 4:

  1. Character creation is by far the most funny and awesome thing about Fallout 4. I actually spend more than 10 minutes to create one, and tried to convince myself that the character I made looked exactly like me. (Spoiler: The character I made does not look like me IN ANY WAY. I failed).vlcsnap-error392

  2. The 10mm Pistol is kinda OP. Taking out a giant radroach and even steel-clad raiders only need a bullet for as long they get hit at the right spot.vlcsnap-error799
  3. Graphics aren’t really that great. Yes, the game’s graphics is a huge step up from Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, but it isn’t something that can match Metal Gear Solid’s state of the art graphics. (Disclaimer: I’m playing Fallout 4 at Ultra Settings)vlcsnap-error473
  4. Fallout 4’s world is huge. While there are debates if Fallout 4’s map is bigger than the past Fallout games, it is undeniable that there are plenty of things we can do in Fallout 4. In fact, there’s a large 2K sized map that you can find in the game files. A copy of the photo may be seen on this link or in the spoiler tag below.

  5. D-dog may have been a lot skilled than Dogmeat, the latter is far “overpowered” than the former. First, Dogmeat doesn’t die in game but his attacks are initially meh. He just becomes unconscious when his health drops to zero, which in my experience rarely happened. Second, Dogmeat can pick essential things for you and fights off whatever it encounters along the way. That, unfortunately, kinda sucks because it is possible to get discovered when you’re trying to catch your opponents by surprise./
