This time we followed the three month rule before buying the latest DLC for Fallout 4. O.K. maybe more like the two month rule. It seems that the Vault Tec Workshop and Nuka World DLC is the type of game content that people either love or hate. We didn’t find the complaints about Vault Tec workshop quality to be justified quite frankly. That is, perhaps, because our own Julie mods Bethesday games and knows how the set pieces work together. As for own Julie she like the Nuka World expansin, even if it was a bit too brief. That may have been her own doing however as given the opportunity to either unite the raiders or get rid of them and free the traders she took the latter route – or as one guide put it, “the short and brutal route.” Still, much of Nuka World waits to be explored.
Maybe we enjoyed the content because we like the settlement building so much.
We find that is just our cup of tea – and the additions like robots of Automatron poured the tea good and hot…
Personally we loved freeing Ahab the robot (depicted above) from the raiders who tried to enslave him. In the end we found he was more than happy to guard over one of our favorite settlements. But it seems that Bethsda put a little more intelligence into the “artificial intelligence ” than we expected. One evening we came back to town from a day of adventuring only to find Ahab bellied up to the local bar demanding a drink. And when a robot that sports to shoulder mounted cluster bomb launchers, a missle launcher and a gatling laser demands a drink you give it to him…just like our bartender did below. Still we can’t help but think of the old joke with the gorilla who orders a drink in a bar and ends up complaining about the price of the drink…”And at these prices you won’t get many more gorillas in here!”
