Is there a mod that removes these assholes? The level scaling is absolutely retarded in this game.

It's not like I CAN'T beat them, if I just circle strafe them with the Terrible Shotgun for 7 minutes or play peak-a-boo with Eugene, then they go down.
The issue is that there's shitloads of them and they're the opposite of fun to fight.
Someone needs to bust into the game files and see what the actual odds on idiot savant are. I have a feeling Int 9 is going to be better, because there'd be no good reason to go over 6 if it wasn't.
Anybody got any working download links for the fallout 4 video leaks?
Because the entire plot revolves around transhumanism / the singularity bullshit. Also Kellogg has an implant you loot and take to the Memory Den for PLOT REASONS so they're a thing on the east coast.
no crits for heavy weapons
sniper perk is fuck-useless
permanently chem-bosted for the win
Fuck VATS. Fuck everything. Can't stop the Juggernaut, bitch.
Remember, if you're gonna insult someone, make sure to use the correct insults
You know she legitimately is an all around better choice for being the SS than the dad in addition to her VA being miles better and having cute hair/butt.
As far as your sole motivation being "find your kid" and dealing with adult grandpa Shaun (with the option to kill him) it feels right for the mother of the kid to have a much higher emotional stake in the "baby" than the dad would. They're both on equal footing as far as surviving to begin with since the spouse you choose is the vet.
Does that remove the bonus secret damage they do with Tri-Laser Rifles?
>he uses VATS
yeah, it's a disgrace. I'm still going to ride Nick every day come sex mods. Can't stop the future.
The audio file for Ending (1) has the SS monologue over what is clearly a nuke (or equivalent) going off and destroying what they worked for and Ending (2) is about losing Shaun.
You'd imagine it's A) blow up shit to save Shaun from himself/work with Shaun/??? and B) is very obviously stop Shaun from blowing shit up or whatever evil shit he's doing.
Any news on Synth Nora as a companion/waifu? Or any synth waifu? I really hope Todd didn't fucking blow it.
I want to get to Pain Train as fast as I can, synergize it with jetpack AOE jumps and Heavy Weapon use.
>literally no way of improving character speed in FO4

He had to go somewhere. He's an asshole, we could all be playing the game right now if he sent files to 3dm or rg mechanics or some shit. Also, he went along with the 2 hours meme.
>please help us fight the future, anon
I'm afraid I've got some bad news for you, Elder.
Hello Shaun, this is me, your father, Walter Bishop
>generic playthrough man
It became popular because Bethesda's retarded radiant AI spouted it over and over again.
It's the same fucking process. A companion will spout something annoying a thousand times and people will latch onto it.
I'd really like to know how these motherfuckers can sit there and agree amongst eachother that a character repeating a one liner for a game that lasts 80+ hours is a good idea.
Bethesda pretty much does nothing but shit out these long games and you'd think they would have picked up on some basic common sense decision making.
Nigger you said unplayable, not fun. New Vegas is perfectly playable without Vats and the only time anyone sane goes near Fallout 3 is using it as a New Vegas shooting gallery accessory.
I wonder if she's reacting to your karma status.
>anon please stop being such a bad influence on me, you're making me upset.
Closest inspiration is pic related, since I'll be customizing my guns personally and carry tools for any possible given situation (mines, grenades, various gun types etc.) And I'll be playing as, while not an edgy motherfucker, someone that wants to make the world a better place, even if it means killing people along the way.
>confirming a character's appearance in the intro
>confirming a character's personality in the intro
>confirming everything about your character in the intro
Why is Bethesda so against player freedom in the Fallout franchise?
They have no problem just throwing you in the world with TES, but with Fallout they really limit your choices.
Why is that?
Prolly gonna go something like this.
Will have to train Luck thou.
I'm pretty sure there's some kind of karma system related to companions. Valentine comments on wanting to do more good deeds for others when you ask how the relationship between them are going.
Mate ordered Pipboy Edition of Fallout.
I missed out, he's been a total cunt about it.
"Just my copy of Fallout cancelled this is fuckin bullshite"
>Intro isn't Ron Perlman
I'm okay with this. It's time they broke the mold, Ron won't be around for Fallout 5 anyways.
Because Fallout, and most RPgs, have always been games with fairly set protagonists.
Only Elder Scrolls has been notable for its "literally zero background" approach to RPGs, which it gets constant criticism for since thats not ver RPgish
>Ron won't be around for Fallout 5 anyways.
Anon I swear to god
>implying pip boy wont become next big fashion bomb
I hope you die a slow and painful death, Burgerposter.
>UK RETAILER GAME ARE CANCELLING PIP-BOY PREORDERS
TOP FUCKING KEK
Nah, not really. They'll probably set the role your character plays and that's it. They don't go as far as Beth is with FO4 giving you a personality and family and everything else.
just picked up this game to play in the mean time
Fallout 1 and 2 didn't have this.
And New Vegas worked very well with a simple background (you're a courier hired to deliver this chip).
Only Fallout 3 and 4 are fucking shit up.
Na dude, even as far back as Bauldr's gate they had very set backstories like
"your some adopted shit that's spent his entire life with this elder dude and, and you were a generally good person, and you care about him a lot, which is why you try to find out who killed him and why".
>preordered Steelcase edition
>they still haven't taken my money
>all they did was try to hide the textures with the lighting
>people gobbled it up because of all the bullshit they said in the article
Normies are so easily manipulated.
This is what they get for preordering.
Karma for willful ignorance and letting Todd get away with his satanic shenanigans all for a piece of plastic.
Need those fucking Duracell cores to run long enough to purge entire dungeons.
Plus, Radiation weapons are OP against humans, which is what most combatants are.
hence Chem Resistant/Chemist
>Fallout 1, you are a generally good guy/gal who has lived in the vault their entire life and obviously has some sort skill set, reliability, and dependability, that the Vault chooses you to go out and seek the water chip.
>Fallout 2, you are some tribal shit whose mother is the fucking leader of the village, you have an aunt, you like both of them, and you care enough about your vilige to go out and try to find a GECK to save thier asses
>New Vegas Literally all of Lonesome Road is one massive forced backstory
Stop trying to revise history you autist.
Divinity Original Sin
I'm not saying they don't give you an already set path. But it's not a completely defined existence either for your character like how Mass Effect, Deus Ex or FO3/4 is.
He's rich, he probably has more left years in him than you.
Please leave Ron alone.
Man, I was so hoping Valentine was a sociopath whom you can help find a humane side. Oh well.
>Stuck in some asshole mudslime island for work.
>100kb/s internet (with massive latency, so no online gaming of any kind).
>Fallout 4 still stuck on "purchased"
We can start downloading when?
REMINDER THAT FALLOUT IS NO LONGER AN RPG. TOO MUCH FREEDOM IS BAD.
Anon, if you look ahead of you, you will see stars redshifting. That's how backwards you are.
Except you can't. You can convince him he is wrong, and that you have the power to keep these nations alive, but you can never convince him it wasn't you.
Which also doesnt change the fact OBsidian said it was you.
1: YOU ARE A VAULT DWELLER FROM VAULT 13 WHO WAS ALWAYS WHITE
2: YOU ARE A WHITE OOGA BOOGA LITERAL TRIBE MONKEY WHO SUDDENLY LEARNS CIVILIZED ETIQUETTE FOR NO GODDAMN REASON
NV: YOU SPECIFICALLY CAME FROM CALIFORNIA AND WALKED UP AND DOWN FROM NEVADA AND THE DIVIDE A LOT
3: FALLOUT 1 REHASHED
4: YOU ARE A PRE WAR FUCKAROO WHO GOT FROZEN AND ARE EX MILITARY
It all seems exactly the same to me.
You kind of can because it was late DLC that most people played through the entire game without knowing.
People are upset because wife+kid+go find your kid is a lot more personal than the past main quests and is extremely hard to ignore compared to "water chip"
Here's my build

the guy said 2 hours, don't be a whiny turd.
Its a joke. The only people I know that still buy overpriced plastic and other video game extras are my friends that are all early twenties, which is hardly 'adult' age.
I'm not going to personally going to spend forty bucks on some random cheap plastic when thats 3-4 books or whatever, i don't actually care what you do with your money as long as you enjoy yourself.
if you ignore the water chip, you lose the game, anon.
how bad are you at fallouts?
are you tommy wiseau?
For my west side brothers
and sisters, here's what that means in our tongue
Yes, anon. Yes. Welcome to modern RPGs. Just let me shoot shit and make a waifu.
I al so saw on stream a "Piper didn't like this" due to a failed speech check with someone in Diamond City (it was asking for advance payment for a quest) but I don't know if it's related to failing the check in itself or just the PC being a greedy fuck to Piper's friend.
What are you even implying? Some books are five dollars, some books are limited print from thirty years ago I have to spend fifty bucks on because theres no PDF torrent/they aren't on bookz.
My copy of Goethe's Werther is leather bound German and only cost me like 7 bucks.
>people actually do this
I know this is a bait post, but why? The game is a subpar shooter, the dialogue is shit, the story isn't really worth it etc. What are you actually playing for if you take most of the gameplay away to become a mary sue?
Way to prove that you didn't play the games, kek.
Nothing in Fallout 1 implies that you are a good person or has some sort of skill set or reliability or dependability. Jacoren was just sending people out to find. Vault Dweller wasn't the first one. You can ignore the main quest if you want too.
Fallout 2, yeah, you're tribal person, descendant of the Vault Dweller and you do go out and save them, you are the chosen one.
There is no massive forced backstory in Lonesome Road. All Lonesome Road says is that you made deliveries and you did odd jobs here and there.
I know Ulysses is often hard to follow, most of people have a problem with the way Ulysses speak, but that's all he says about the Courier.
But in Fallout 4 you are a white guy named Nate who was a soldier, with a white wife named Nora who was a stay-home-mom, with a white son named Shaun. And you love your son. And you love your wife. And you are a good person.
It's the latter. A guy was missing and the PC's first reaction was "Well, what's it worth to you?" Piper's whole deal is doing good for good's sake, not for gold and glory
Nah, I actually do that in New Vegas and 3. Stay triggered, nignog.
>take most of the gameplay away
It's more fun being an unstoppable badass, it adds gameplay for me. Sorry I don't play the game exactly like you.
Nobody answered in last thread, so I'll repost.
Do you anons think it would be good if Unarmed became the quick melee, instead of gun bashing?
Streamlining isn't always bad.
I loved that they did it for throwables, Project Nevada didn't get it quite right.
I pre-ordered FO4 on Amazon but bought the Season Pass on GMG as it was quite cheap.
Anyone know if there will be a problem if I activated the code on steam without the basegame in my library?
For my anons wondering what the girl looked like
she's not that great.
>needs to cheat to be an unstoppable badass
It would be nice if you could take a perk for either gun bashing or Unarmed. Then you could choose if you want to strengthen your fist or add knives to your guns to do quick melee damage.
>there are people who ACTUALLY paid full price for FO4 through Steam
Pic related. It's what we'll both be getting, only I paid HALF. Kek
No, it takes two hundred seventy-two levels to max all perks and ranks.
>character creator lets you be a gook, spic or nigger
What the the fuck was they thinking?
>at least fucking earn it
Why? When I just said it adds to the gameplay for me? why would I want to wait to have fun? Once again, I don't play like you.
Plus newer Fallout games are not about difficulty,. Higher difficulties = more enemy health and the AI is dumb on all of them. Why you would care about skill in this game is beyond me.
damnit these are fucking good
i meant SPECIAL
because that's what the guy posted that he was going to alter to 10.......................................................................................
I was thinking in line with like Republic Commando, from which most FPS's seemed to take this idea: you can't use Unarmed at all as a standalone attack, but you can modify it by wearing brass knuckles/power fists, etc.
Yeah, games with dumb AI and enemies just gaining more health on higher difficulties sure is about skill, anon.
Thats like saying "is it really cheating if I want a cool weapon but I don't want to complete a quest for it"
Achieving something through underhanded methods that skip over the correct way to do something is literally the definition of cheating. Git gud and earn that shit.
I swear, entitled babbies these days think they should be allowed everything without ever having to work for it. No wonder the NEET population is growing.
None of it is cheating because it's a singleplayer game. I don't 'cheat' but I don't care if other people do, it literally doesn't matter, play how you want. I think the anons who complain about it are just insecure neckbeards who put their self worth into how much 'skill' they have in games.
>the new SPECIAL/Perk system is better! they said
>removing skills is a good thing!
If it's so easy, then why can't you do it? I'm not claiming anything requires skill, but you must be severely lacking or disabled if you have to cheat in order to get something, ESPECIALLY in a bethesda game.
It's a fucking singleplayer videogame you loser. You're talking like this is some job. Literally who cares besides you insecure fucks who put all your worth into how much 'skill' you have in videgames? Jesus christ.
chechnya bechnya bup bup bup
go eat a potato and hate kapitalism
Actual screencap from 3DM.
Get hyped fellas
It is a good thing. I always hated skills, ever since FO1
I don't think what FO4 has is optimal, but it's a step up. I just wish all perks were creative, adding some new mechanic, like Pain Train or Nuclear Physicist 3, but it's still okay.
as i thought
You need the Mod Configuration Menu
Once you get that, you go to the pause menu (not your pipboy screen), and click Mod Configuration Menu
One of the "categories" should be A World of Pain Loot Destruction. Turn it off.
The reason it's in there is because AWoP NPCs have some decent gear and could unbalance early on.
>your son is the villain
My God that is so hilariously cliche. How the fuck did it take 4 or so years to develop this?
I don't think you understand. This is not a matter of not being able to do anything, this has nothing to do with skill. This about what's fun to me. bethesda games, once again, are not about skill. They are more fun to be an unstoppable badass. I still like to use mods to have enemys do more damage to me so I die quicker, but other than that I'm OP. Sorry you're so upset I don't play a singleplayer game the way you do.
If I want to play an FPS for difficulty I'll play Stalker or FEAR on the hardest difficulties.
have we seen third person nora walk/run animations
>want something and use underhanded method to attain it
>durr hurr it doesnt matter if that is the definition of cheating because it's easier for a casual like me
Keep trying to justify it, but you're still a cheat and a mega casual.
In the new trailer, very little of it though.
Хyй пococи, пeтyшoк :)
Ктo нe cтpeлял из ПКП, тoт нe пoзнaл cчacтья.
>Nobody supported the Railroad
thank you, 4chin.
Although, compared to BoS pigeon-brains, even they are a good choice.
So glad I stayed in these threads and got the story spoiled. I'd be fucking salty finding that out after hours of gameplay. I knew he'd show up eventually, kind of hoped he'd be a raider or something, but main villain. Fuck that, I'd probably lose all desire to play after seeing that without any prior knowledge.
I'm pretty sure Minuteman are basically your Diamond Dogs, they'll guard your settlements and do whatever you want, they are neutral with little impact on the story.
no lol it jus keeps getting delayed. 3dm has the game now but hasn't developed crack. They're uploading full game without crack, so it should hit the big sites (TPB, etc) in about 2 hours.
>I shouldn't have to earn the things I want! They should be given to me without any effort or time on my part!
Holy fuck why did they do this? The system used by fallout 1, 2 and sort of 3 was literally perfect. Why would they do this weird pick shit thing like witcher 3? Also speaking of witcher 3, how did a bunch of commies make a game so well animated that fallout 4 looks like it was made by blind people?
>The system used by fallout 1, 2 and sort of 3 was literally perfect
it literally was not
SPECIAL was pretty much meaningless, you could have 1 CHA but still be the smoothest motherfucker in the wasteland.
The OG Minutemen were paramilitary vigilanties who assisted the revolutionary US military in fighting the British.
I'm pretty sure it's the same for these guys, except instead of the British it's raiders, supermutants and other assorted scum. I think they will have little impact on the story.
With Nuclear Physicist, anything is possible.
Also, Fusion Cores recharge when you stand still, and even if you run out of charge, you'll just become overencumbered and won't be able to use VATS (which I never do anyway)
So basically I'm getting bamboozled here?
