It definitely is.

I just finished the Cliff Edge Hotel quests Brain Dead and Brain Dead 2.

When you go to Far Harbor you definitely have to take ...

Re: Fo4

Just finished up playing the main quest (plus a bunch of side & radiant quests).
Finished up as BOS lvl 65. I don't use VATS much, slows down gameplay too much for me. I'll probably dink around for a bit and decide if I want to download a DLC.

The DLC is good. Well worth doing.

So what is your technique for taking down a maximum level Legendary Deathclaw? Especially after he spots you.

At level 65 you are not yet high enough to spawn Albino Deathclaws, Chameleon Deathclaws, or Mythic Deathclaws. So I'm not going to ask you your technique for taking down a Legendary Mythic Deathclaw. After you level up more I will.

My technique does include VATS mainly because of certain VATS PERKS. I can and do take them down right up to a Level 107 Legendary Mythic Deathclaw after I observe them and then they discover me and charge ... no game reloads ... first time. It is fun.

I use terrain, obstacles and the jet pack (if out in the open, I back off). I use my Gatling laser at range and an explosive combat shotgun to finish them off (both are modded up). Usually, I kill them very fast, if not, 50/50 whether I die or not (and reload). At least they are more predictable than a legendary scorpion that freaking hides in the sand.

Early on, I just died alot

Re: Fo4

You gotta level up XJ so you can start getting Legendary Mythic Deathclaws.

I do VATS. In VATS I first focus on one leg and cripple it and then the other leg. Only a Legendary Deathclaw has enough hitpoints to survive the crippling of both legs. You then can actually finish it with gun bashing.

Once in a while he gets me with a swipe or two but the maxed out ballistic weave is amazing.


Jet Pack .... Nice. .... Did you get the Freefall Boots? Have you jumped off the Prydwin? Have you jumped off the Fusion Building roof?

Re: Fo4

I've been playing some FO4 recently with the HD graphics and I'm enjoying it but I have to say the flaws in this game are so distracting that its very difficult to take seriously sometimes.
I think the trick to enjoying it for what it is to just get involved in the exploration and hunting aspect. If u think too much about how silly a lot of it is u will lose the immersion.
You know; 200 year old fresh food, wooden structures happily standing, paper documents strewn across the ground and possibly worst of all the sheer congestion, the huge numbers of factions living so closely together and so on. Right now I'm hunting for a fusion core because they keep dying so quickly despite powering simple machines all this time.

Characters are often not fleshed out, story dialog silly and limiting and mission plots basic. I think theres a big problem too where nothing the player does seems to impact the outcome much.

Anyhow, the improved graphics give it new life.

I hope that we get a new game soon that can give us much more realistic sophisticated and mature gameplay. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was very good but a little light on story. We need some sort of hybrid between these games.
