I haven’t started yet, but I finally got Tacoma downloaded and installed last night. For some reason, Steam didn’t have a day 1 Linux release for Tacoma (probably because SteamOS), so I got it on GOG. Really looking forward to this one as Gone Home was surprisingly intense.
Also Fallout 4 continues to be a big one in our house. I bought a copy for the wife a few weeks back and have been watching her play to see the paths that she takes in the game, and how the RNG treats her. It’s been very interesting as she hasn’t stumbled across many fusion cores in the game yet, so it’s actually kind of dangerous to use the power armor. The idea that you may have to abandon your armor out in the commonwealth due to not having fusion cores is something that hadn’t occurred to me, as fusion cores have been littered about the game when I played. On that note, Fallout 4 needs a mod that makes a fusion core running dry actually a problem. As it stands, when a fusion core runs out of power, a new one is thrown magically into the armor without any interruption in service.
Fun story. My wife’s playing inspired me to start a new game. So when sent off to Tenpines to help them out, I stopped off at the robotics junk yard just east of Sanctuary. I activated the sentrybot there and told it to guard Fort Hagen, just to see if that would affect the game at all. So I carry on to Tenpines and they send me to Corvega (I have played through this part numerous times, and oddly on the last playthrough they did not send me to Corvega, which I thought was interesting). I head to Corvega, get there, find I don’t have much room in my inventory,
No problem, I figure I’ll discover the place and head back to Sancturary, and come back later. It was the dead of night, after all. So I discover it, then I head off to the west to grab a Nuka Cola Quantum, and suddenly Corvega lights the hell up with gunfire. Someone throws a molly and there’s a large burning object moving and shooting at Corvega. Turns out the sentrybot had just arrived and started murdering the shit out of the raiders at Corvega. That was hilarious, so I threw in with the sentrybot figuring it was probably the easiest way to deal with all of the raiders outside of the facility.
