121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (12/1) on: November 30, 2015, 03:19:05 AM
This is it, folks.  The last big launch day of the year.  Not usually a big week, but in fact we have three major titles and a smattering of smaller ones.  For my part, I only have one game to pick up, despite the sales of Steam, Green Man Gaming, PSN, XBL and others, and on top of that, got it for 1/3rd normal due to some discounts and codes.  I did end up buying a R9 290 GPU to replace my four year old card and make Fallout look/run better though, so it's clearly a loss in the savings department. 

On to the games.

Have it pre-ordered on PS4 (can't argue with 20% off) and looking forward to tearing down the government of whatever country we are going. They upped the destructive capability.

Steam starts it's Exploration Sale, through Dec 1.  While the old Flash/community/daily sales are no more, you now have time to browse and decide on any game on sale throughout the duration at it's lowest price.

This week marks Thanksgiving in the US and by the looks of the release calendar, pretty much avoided by any major publisher.  Looking at this and next week, it also marks the end of the AAA release blitz.  There are only 3 major titles left and then it goes dark until after the first of the year.

I will be playing Fallout 4, although I tend to be this when it comes to the various quest lines:

yeah, either playing through #1 on both normal and survivor prepared me for this, or the game is easier.  I haven't had nearly the difficulty progressing through it that I did on the first.  The game does give out more effective weapons sooner that's for sure.

Due to my PC being the main source of Fallout, I have been playing this after the wife goes to bed and I lose access.  After the initial stage setting and the flashback tomb (which was quite nice and a great way to address one of the few complaints about the first), you get dropped off into an area which sadly comes off as not much more than a high res redo of the equivalent level in the first game.  Thankfully, once you progress a bit beyond it, the game gets into the meat of the next area, it gets much better.  The game is an improvement over the first in every way so far.  It will be a good game to balance out from the huge expanse of Fallout.

Ran across this in my search of useful information.

https://www.reddit.com/r/fo4/comments/3shl9i/fallout_4_tips_everyone_should_know/

Regarding trade routes, which makes them seem even more useful if you go that route.

https://www.reddit.com/r/fo4/comments/3smzld/fallout_4_has_screwed_up_my_loot_priorities/cwyuitx

A lot of this is in the help menus, but not always evident.

Also, you do not need to manually scrap anything.  If you leave your items in the workshop that has more than one component part, it will deposit the unused parts into the workshop.  It doesn't show that way at first due to a bug but was tested quite a bit. 

The game has a cover system in first person.  When ducked/behind a wall, aiming down the sights will cause you to peak out.

My tactic of having dogmeat hang back away from enemies almost worked against me last night.  Took some time to find where I left him.  I really love the crafting system in the game in terms of weapons and armor.  I haven't done a ton of stuff with the outpost, but still waiting on getting more people before I can expand it.

More so than any other Fallout, you would be hard pressed to screw yourself into a bad corner with this game for one simple fact.  You can level forever and also raise your SPECIALs scores instead of boosting perks on top of the usual bobbleheads which can be found to raise those levels and gear which can raise them beyond that. So, I am only starting out with a certain build but as I progress, I may put more points into CHAR to get access to the town leader perk which lets me build stores.  It's really up to you and how long you want to play it.  

8 hours in and this is already putting The Witcher 3 into contention for GotY.

I started with 3 3 4 1 3 3 7 7 specifically due to the Ninja and Crit banker/improved crit lines.  With a decent sniper (Widowmaker), I can clear out bandit camps from a distance without having to close in.  The Crit banker is useful for clearing inside areas with either carbines or shotguns as you can store and crit shot on command.

I have benched Mad Max as I am not close to finishing it up and every time I play, I end up just roaming the wasteland like an obsessive nanny, picking up every last piece of scrap on my way, until I stop and realize I didn't get anything significant done. 

I have and will continue to put time in with Rebel Galaxy as that game's progression feeds my inner Jefferson's impulse (movin on up) with better ships and harder missions.  I have one more tier of weapons and equipment to go for and about 3-4 of the upper class ships, plus some unknown number of missions in the main campaign.  It's really pulled me away from both Mad Max and MGS as I expect to actually be able to finish it without a laundry list of activities to check off before I do. 
I played a bunch of Rebel Galaxy, but didn't beat it. Keep getting distracted by new equipment and ships I need to buy.  Already started on the last tier of weapons and upgraded my ship. 

I also played a chunk of 7 Days to Die and it really scratches the open world zombie and crafting itch.  If they can improve the combat it will be great

This game probably wouldn't have happened without Microsoft, same as Street Fighter V and Sony, so the fact it'll come to Playstation at all is pretty cool.

I'm sorry to barge into this thread again, but I just wanted to clarify this bit. I have to admit I can't find any sources now since the original announcement news have more or less drowned in the more recent news (including reviews), but as mentioned earlier in this thread, the game was well into development before Microsoft stepped in. It would have been made anyway, and for both consoles simultaneously. I've more or less gotten over the majority of my annoyance with this, but I'm still super pissed that Microsoft paid to have the developers keep their mouths shut about the deal they made. As a result, Microsoft gets to tell the whole story as they want it to be portrayed, which results in the "it wouldn't have been made without us" silliness. If it hadn't been for Internet pressure, we probably wouldn't even have known about next year's PS4 release yet.

I'm glad that the game appears to be awesome though, despite all the negativity I pour on it. Looking forward to playing it next year.
I don't buy that line either, but they would probably argue that this version of the game would not have been made, which may be true.  We'll see how much that is true once the PS4 version hits and how it compares to the XB1.

If I can get Best buy to honor my pre-order with the $25 off deal they have this week for Fallout 4, I will probably break my vow and pick up Rise just to give the XB some love.

Turns out, it's $25 off a small list of games, not everything.  That just made my week slightly cheaper.

FO4 is now available to pre-load on Steam.

Well, I guess I gave in to the hype and pre-bought it on GMG so now I'm preloading that 25GB. 
My Pre-load finished last night.  You should have seen the level of angst on Reddit and elsewhere about when the keys would be sent and if soon enough to pre-load.  I had several people on twitch actually convinced that the keys would only be provided on the 10th, leading to all manner of refund and boycott threats. 

Now it's just the weekend and Monday to wait.  First time I had a pre-load on Steam in a while that I would be itching for the clock and the scramble to start unlocking.
