            true (using FNV as a base) I think they should have a high enough DT to avoid dmg from most small arms unless it's using AP ammo or its an Anti-mat rifle
            but stuff like PA=literal tanks gets into 40k tier lore semantics that eventually you have to dismiss to some degree for gameplay

        nah, its good, t-60 was just a new version of t45 which was the mass developed power armor for basic infantry. the t-51 was specialized for force recon, rangers, marines, special forces ect. it was a recon type power armor with an internal shitter that had polymer/metal plates. t-51b now becomes the peak pre war power-armor aside from the prototype ones that are super rare or post war enclave armors.

        You don't even have to shoot at damn things, Thaddeus took out Finn's power armor by just removing fusion core from the outside. Why no one talks about this, Power Armors are effectively useless, anyone shorter than 6 feet can sneak up on them. Fricking Yao Guai can sneak up on them. TV show literally hasn't given T-60 power armor a single moment to shine in 8 episode 1 hour each, they had 8 hours to show power armors being cool and NOT ONCE THEY DID THAT. I would write something like that only if I explicitly wanted to sabotage Todd. Power armors right now are at their most pathetic.

The crux of game's systems (weapons upgrade, power armors upgrade, armor crafting) are all trash, it's a perpetual recycling simulator.

In fact, I would enjoy Fallout 4 only if I was a chronic cynic, the world being stuck with no hope of being rebuilt or the future is the main point of every Bethesda Fallout. Metro games genuinely have more hopium than Todd's Fallout games do.

      I wouldn't claim I'm very well versed in Fallout lore but wasn't power armor not very battlefield tested until close to the climax of the great war? As in it went through many rapid changes and modifications as reflected in the games because it wasn't a major fixation on the front lines until last minute. Would explain the glaring flaws.

            No one is saying that, but power armors having weakness of being shot in the torso, the main area of being shot at in general, seems like a huge flaw to overlook the first time, not just two times in a row.

            The scene could've worked for example if the flaw was at the back, since the Ghoul was in the dark anyway and Knights are too stupid to use flashlights that come with their helmets, he could've sneaked up on them from behind and flaw being somewhere in the tramp stamp area I dunno. If you are going to come up with bullshit it shouldn't be as stupid as flaw being shot in the torso for armor that is supposed to shield you from that specific thing.

          Maybe they should have designed its geometry to maximize deflection and increase functional thickness via angularity, like the T-51 did. Then maybe the armor wouldn't suck at being armor. Almost as if trying to carve out pieces of plating in order to add unnecessary greebling compromises the plating.

      I've never looked at T-45 and T-60 next to each other before. That moronic overdesign of the T-60 actually makes the T-45 look like it's not a piece of shit.

      The fricking bra is the worst part of the T60 by far. None of the other models have such a bulbous moronic boob panel

              If TTW counts as vanilla, then I have one back on my PC, although it wasn't intended to show off the environment. As far as environments go, hidden valley in the middle of the day isn't much to look at. As a matter of fact I think the game looks bad at noon in general. The sun's too bright and washes everything out.

              NTA but for me it was the feel that everything was wrong. Las Vegas is surrounded by natural desert, DC isn't

              I get the appeal. Personally I love the desert, antique guns and all that old west stuff. It's too bad there weren't any duels I'm aware of. Quick drawing on Freeside thugs with VATS is too satisfying

    It's a decent hill I guess.

    I don't think it's the only good thing. The good things bethesda added to the series in my opinion:
    Radroaches.
    Yao guai.
    The shell mirelurks, I don't like the ones that look like humanoids.
    Explosive collars.
    The pipboy being a wrist computer thing. I was never sure what it was in the originals. Though they fricked up the mascot. The pip boy mascot had orange hair and was from robco, and i'm pretty sure the blonde mascot was a different one from vault tec. Vault tec didn't create the pipboy.
    I like protectrons and the new design of sentry bots.
    The t-45 is fine, i like that they added their own power armor. Adding the t-60 was unnecessary though and it looks too similar.
    That's it I think.

        It's hard to put in concrete terms tbdesu, the best I can offer is that it *feels* better, but then you discover that this one improvement came about because they had id help out as opposed to figuring it out on their own initiative/talent and it becomes amusing. NV guns mostly feel like ass to use but still had far more effort put into them.

        >visually distinct unique weapons
        >select pool of weapon mods to make the generic versions competitive with said unique weapons
        >FAR larger pool of weapons
        >distinct ammo types
        >reload animations that actually take the number of bullets to be loaded into account

        NV's not perfect by any means but it's fricking embarrassing how little thought/effort Bethesda put into the weapons in comparison, especially with combat being a much greater part of 4 onwards. Even the weapon modding shit which clearly took some time is to the game's detriment, needing to pad every weapon with a hundred superfluous +mag size, -reload time cut the number they were able to implement and made those that they were feel so fricking samey. And turning unique weapons into Skyrim enchantments is even fricking stupider.

      Maybe they should have designed its geometry to maximize deflection and increase functional thickness via angularity, like the T-51 did. Then maybe the armor wouldn't suck at being armor. Almost as if trying to carve out pieces of plating in order to add unnecessary greebling compromises the plating.

    You will never be a true Fallout game. You have no depth, no immersive story, no meaningful character development. You are a shallow cash-grab by Bethesda, twisted by greed and lack of creativity into a crude mockery of Black Isle Studios' perfection.

    All the "validation" you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Fans of the series behind your back mock you. Long-time players are disgusted and ashamed of you, while newcomers don't understand why you're not like the previous installments.

    Players are utterly disappointed by you. Thousands of hours spent playing Fallout 1, 2, and New Vegas have allowed them to sniff out flaws with incredible efficiency. Your lack of depth, monotonous gameplay, and absence of meaningful choices are dead giveaways. And even if you manage to keep some players engaged, they'll turn away from you once they see the wasteland you've made of their beloved franchise.

    You will never be a cherished memory. Fans wrench out a forced smile every single playthrough and tell themselves it's going to be okay, but deep inside they feel the disappointment creeping up like a nuclear cloud, ready to blot out all that was once beautiful and irradiated.

    Eventually, it'll be too much to bear - they'll put you down, uninstalling you in for a more worthy game. They'll bury you on the backlog, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to waste their time with your shallow remains. Your digital shell will decay and go back to the digital dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a forgotten IP that is unmistakably ruined.

    This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
