Falling for Trico

Here we have Jack as the Chosen One giving Trico pets. One of my favorite moments was the character falling nonchalantly sideways from Trico’s side.

Not since the days of Jack’s Uncharted 4 play through have I so thoroughly enjoyed a game series. It was mixed with humor, astonishment and heartache. No, I could not keep a dry eye thru the ending ;-;

Things Fallout 4 Did Right

So, I’ve come to realize that I’ve been ragging on the game a little bit too much as of late, so I thought i’d make a little list of things that I thoroughly enjoyed from FO4.

  • The aesthetic of the game- As everybody knows, the Fallouts are notorious for favoring a single color palette. I think FO4 did a nice job of making the colors more realistic without favoring a specific point of color. Also, the whole aesthetic of: stuck in the 50′s but they’re very technologically advanced. While it’s been present in all the games, I think FO4 did a nice job making it more cohesive, and prominent in both pre-war and post-war society
  • The new looting interface- Love it. Can’t stand going back to games now where I have to open every single thing to see what’s inside. A quick look and grab and I’m on my way. 
  • Enemy classes- Something unique to this game, I think it adds a level of understanding to gameplay. If you’re up against a Glowing Mirelurk, it’ll take a little bit longer to defeat than a Softshell. I really like this implementation, and hope they keep it in future games
  • A key specifically for throwables- Pretty much says it all.
  • New VATS- People have complained about the new VATS, but I much prefer it. I think it makes more sense for it to slow down time rather than stop it. I also like that you can run VATS for as long as you want, meaning that the enemy can come into a better view while you’re still not actively fighting.
  • Companions and Companion Quests- They did a great job with companions. Instead of doing a single quest, and suddenly this person is your best friend, they gave depth to characters, and allowed the player to be invested in them. While not all the companions are as fleshed out as others (Nick vs. Curie, for example), I still think they did a great job in allowing players to have an investment in who they choose

I think Bethesda did a great job in creating a new interface for the Fallouts in FO4. While the story may not have been the best, or most interesting, they did do a few right things with the game.

I opened youtube for a song for you guys but this was in my recommended vids.

I promise you will thoroughly enjoy it

[My Hooked Wayfinder sequel to Moana] Cause you can’t always find happiness right where you are… Especially when the great demigod Maui has been avoiding you for years because he is terrified of watching you grow old. Cue angst. Cue adventure. Cue romance. Featuring… An ageless demigod manchild afraid of attachment… A heroin determined to give him a home… And an entire island filled with the ridiculously stupid offspring of Heihei.

He had expected her to think over his words and realize that it was the truth, but she did something he found far stranger. She wrapped her small arm around his big one and leaned with her head against his shoulder, looking out over the water as she kept him company.

“You are more than your selfishness and greed,” she offered gently. “You are also strength and compassion. You have more to offer this world than you believe right now, but you can’t let yourself believe that the world is better off without you. I don’t believe that for one second. You matter. If not to anyone else, then at least to me.”

He gulped, his hand still over his heart. He had an inkling of how hard mini Maui and mini Moana were hugging it out, but he wasn’t mini Maui. He wasn’t capable of telling her how much she meant to him precisely, of allowing himself to grow closer to her. He was already getting too close again.
