I’m digging it. I like it more than NV myself but that’s just me. I got the collector’s edition with the PipBoy phone case (that’s really all it is). It’s neat, but I don’t really use it. I do like the phone app though. I keep the phone I was going to use in the case (My Nexus is too big to fit) on my desk with a charger usually with the map up. Makes for a nice secondary monitor.
The building is neat and I’ve seen some really good ones. But yeah, I started on the quests and then kind of gave up. Red Rocket is my base right now though I might move to the StarLight Drive. But it sucks that I went back to Sanctuary to find a synth attacking and I didn’t get any notice. Plus they damaged my defenses and resources and I didn’t know it. I thought I would get a notice. I think I might do some cheating to setup a decent base or two and then leave it. I do wish it was more optional. And that the tutorial was better. Didn’t know highlighting a settler also highlighted what he was assigned to.
I have all the other games too (original copies and digital). I love the series. I even kickstarted Wasteland 2. I’ve run into graphic problems with the game not starting and crashing. I bought a R380 to play the game at a decent framerate but it still crashes if I play all day. I need a new case and motherboard for the game box anyways. Maybe soon. I do wish they had done a bit more tutorials though, like the fact you have a flashlight or can holster your weapon. But I’m loving it.
