I bought all DLC on discount having abandoned the game ages ago after completing the story due to being totally unenthusiastic about the online only 76...you guys think I'm going to have fun playing them? What's the best DLC?

Most of it just seems to add stuff to your building menus. Didn't get the Far Harbour one as it was too expensive.

Don't know what the two DLC I don't have are selling for right now (FH and NW) but I wish I'd spent my money on one of these instead of Residential Evil 6. I've spent that many years playing first-person open world games that third-person railroad games, especially with so many button prompts and combos are very difficult to enjoy nowadays. They don't even keep 'open door' assigned to the same button for every door.

Game breaking bug near the endgame ruined the DLC for me. Also didn't like the fact how you become the overboss within the first 30 minutes.

This is a joke, right?

 

Nukaworld is the worst Fallout DLC ever made in terms of story and implementation into the base game. SPOILER ALERT to anyone who hasn't played it yet, but if you actually want to experience the Nukaworld questline, you have to break your Fallout game by siding with the Raiders and wiping out the innocent people living at your settlements who were aligned with the Minutemen. And since Fallout 4's RPG mechanics are basically garbage, you're already forced to be a good guy by establishing these settlements and supporting the MM to begin with.

 

You have to play the entire Fallout 4 game essentially as a goody-two-shoes baby face, then suddenly Nukaworld asks you to make a complete heel turn for literally no good reason. If you refuse to side with the Raiders then the DLC will last you no more than about 30, 45 minutes. If you want to play through the rest of the content then you have to become a different character who goes against everything your original character has been building throughout the Commonwealth.

 

SPOILER ALERT... here's the Nukaworld storyline: Raiders set up a trap to catch the Wanderer, but it's not really a trap, they actually want you to become their leader and king because apparently you're the ONLY ONE capable of destroying a few robots and some wild animals and solving a little puzzle... that's it. That's the whole thing. It's a monumental disappointment, even more poorly written than the original game, and provides you with nothing redeemable aside from maybe the AK47 which you could've had with mods anyhow.

 

I really enjoyed Far Harbor for what it was. Cannot say the same for Nukaworld.

Fair enough.  Yeah, I wasnt a fan of having to return and mow down some of my settlements.  I ignore all of that after those couple they make you do to clear your quest log.

 

For me it boils down to;  you can't beat a good post apocalyptic amusement park.  :)

There actually is a way to finish Nuka World as a good character. Essentially, you just kill all the Raider gangs in Nuka World and that's it. Good thought out story eh?

 

Despite that Nuka World still was a ton of fun for me, as the individual parks were cool to explore.

Here goes your non-bullsh*t information from someone who actually played and paid attention to it.


Nuka World isn't a DLC to progress with. It's something you should start with.

Spoiler

 

If you're with the Minutemen, you can destroy Raiders in Nuka World after getting the mission from a merchant and call it a day. You still have side missions lying around the land and there are also arcade mini games like Whack a Mole with redeemable prizes.

 

Otherwise, complete your trial and kill the Overboss. Yes, you're supposed to be dead in there, but you killed him. So you are basically the new acting Overboss now. Then like Batman, you receive yourself a butler, called Gage and also a wasteland mansion overviewing the Nuka World. Now of course, since you're playing a video game, you gotta go with video game logic and run errands while being the overboss. You are set to expand the territory within the Nuka World landmass first and that is by taking over the available sectioned parks from robots that evolve themselves to protect their 'homes'. Then you expand to Commonwealth, this is where it becomes cancer for those who have secured settlements. At the end of the day, one of them will be unhappy with your treatment and pull a rebellion against you and the rest of the gangs.

 

Basically, you will be the mafia boss by the end of the game. By completing the main story, you lit up Nuka World once again and it becomes your giant trading post (with the enslaved merchants). Your further Commonwealth expansion, however, is optional. You can turn them into Raider settlements or Raider suppliers. If you turn them as supplier, then the settler stays but you will lose control of it. If you choose to set them as Raider settlement, you can kick the Settlers out in unpeaceful way or convince them to just leave without any bloodshed. You may come across hostile Minutemen in the process. Preston also will no longer be your friend, though the Minutemen will still be non-hostile faction. You have one settlement spot in this DLC (which is located quite far to access).

 

 

 

 

I personally prefer Far Harbor over Nuka World. And that tops with the fact that I hate replaying/restarting a game. Now my progress is a bit all over the place with the Raider stuff going on.

Spoiler

 

Far Harbor's location feels different compared to Commonwealth and Nuka World. In Far Harbor, I felt like embarking on a journey. While in Nuka World, I felt more of doing stuff and going back and forth to the hub area style. The FH story starts by helping Nick taking a case of a missing person and from then on, it's all one-point-leads-to-another style. You will encounter story twists and more stories about Nick, Synths, and Children of Atom. You have a few extra settlements to take over in FH (five if I'm not wrong).

 

Far Harbor has mostly more mutant animals, while Nuka World has more robots. One DLC eats you. The other burns your character into ash.

I'm probably being too harsh but it's mostly from the aftertaste, not the content itself.

Nukaworld is well designed and fun to explore but it's attached to the larger issue of Fallout 4 being a completely failed RPG. Nukaworld itself, like the rest of the base game, would've been vastly more enjoyable if they could have provided ANY kind of CONSISTENCY in terms of the writing or the characters or the plot. As it stands, it's just a series of interesting ideas that were poorly executed without much depth, but which are housed within an attractive and highly modifiable sandbox. Fallout 4's real saving grace is it's community and extensive moddications which go a long way to 'fixing' and improving many of Bethesda's oversights and omissions. And perhaps my frustration in general stems from the disappoint I see coming in Fallout 76; like they're going to make the exact same mistakes... and it just sucks.

I just tested my mod save with loads of mods and seems ok. Weather redux/Darkernights looks cool but something odd happened: when I travelled to diamond city the entire town was hostile and attacked. Plus I one hit killed everyone with a knife. Not sure if my guy is OP or if this is caused by a mod (I hadn't installed any that would do this I think.)

 

Still looking good for my next playthrough

I have steadily been removing some mods I stopped using and added new ones. Still on 255 mods, but most of them are larger, collective mods now, rather than single armors.

Most good mods make it to consoles anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if they are approached by Bethesda to do this.

Got my Fallout 4 back. Reinstalled everything except Vault Tec DLC due to the heavy bug that auto-destroy the main generator and insta-kill everyone.

 

Played for a few hours again. Felt so good. Killed so many things with my Throatslicer knife and finally managed to get Piper off the relationship status.

PS4 has a limit for each game save. Make sure you don't exceed. Delete some of the old Fallout 4 save file.

hey guys, I have the infamous 'Fire Support' glitch where Danse and company keep telling me there's hostiles around (Gouls) when there isn't. there's a mod to help fix this, but 

A.will I be able to remove the mod and it still work afterward and 

B. will it mess with my abilities to unlock the achievements I need to once I remove the mod? or does it permanently effect your game?

well that f*cking blows... second time I've had a game breaking glitch for FO4. almost tempted to just destroy the BOS but I enjoy some of the quest they hand out... 

 

 

 

is there there any way around this glitch or am I pretty much f*cked as far as the BOS questlines go?

I'm on the XB and thanks for the link. I really don't want to do it, but I just might have to. Can I just continue and beat the game without having any interaction with the BOS?

Yes.

Pretty sure you can do the Nuclear Option with the MM or the RR or even help the Institute without ever advancing the Brotherhood line.

Spend those skill points wisely.  Get the 'waterboy' skill (or whatever it's called) early.  That lets you swim without taking rad damage.

 

I like to bank my skillpoints for those moments you may need to ramp up quickly.  Like...later in the game you may be presented with a lock to pick but you aren't an expert.  It may cost you 2 or 3 skill points to quickly gain the needed lockpicking skills in order to proceed with picking that lock.

 

Don't ignore armor crafting.  

 

Later in the game having a travel companion that can shoot well helps.  I love dogmeat but sometimes it's best to leave him at home and bring along someone who can 'really' help out in combat.

The 0kb error butchered my game. No free mods installed anymore, only creations. I can't even start a new game because I'm getting an infinite black screen. That's what you get from supporting a sh*tty microtransaction currency business.

 

I contacted Sony to get a refund for my recent purchase of 1500 credits. Getting the solar canon and the condo broke my game. I don't think I can redownload and reinstall it all and start a new game over again just to get f*cked later anyways. No matter what I do, always ends the same and I can't just go back to playing vanilla like that.

 

With F4 broken and F76 being always online garbage, I'm done with Fallout. It's been great. I wish they gave Obsidian the steering wheel again.

I just got 0kb yesterday aswel (well not yet, but the early warning signs are there), i have worked out that when installing the game (in a safe manner, rebuild database/clearing cache etc...), i can only have 49 creations installed, if i get the 50th, my game will start crashing when exiting the creation club (after downloading something), and eventually get the 0kb error. But if i have purchased/acquired all these creations why should i be limited? PC and xbox can get all the creations, and they also get a larger selection of mods to choose from. At least give me the option to uninstall a creation when i want to get something new, instead of having to waste days or even weeks reinstalling the game again.

 

The 0kb issue started when sony updated the ps4 system a while back, it improves stability of games (less crashes), but games like fallout and skyrim are plagued with a new problem (0kb). I think the 0kb error was always there, but the update greatly increased the chances of it happening. If you go to the official bethesda forums there are topics showing up daily (in ps4 support section) asking how to fix the game after they get 0kb, i just hope Bethesda/Sony notice it's such a big problem right now (the more creations available, the more chance of it happening)

-Don't kill people in settlements. They don't respawn ever and they can carry valuable items to purchase.

-Take Rad Resistant early. Radaway and Rad-X are rare and Rad Resistant loses it's usefulness at higher levels.

-Don't even think of entering the Glowing Sea early. 

-If you plan on building stuff, take the perks which let you scrap weapons and pick up any crappy guns enemies drop for that use.

-Sarcastic dialogue options are usually pretty amusing and act as a fancy way to say "yes" to most requests.
