Everything Game – Review

If I was to describe this game in just a few words it would be “what the actual fuck” that was before I got playing it and actually got into it. It’s actually a really clever game, it makes me laugh, makes me smile, gets me thinking and also makes you think differently. Its so hard to explain.

This morning I’ve played as so many objects, creatures, trees, particles and the narration throughout the game is something else, this guy could read me a bed time story and I would have no issues falling asleep!

I’ve only been playing it for a good couple of hours today, for £11.99 I reckon I’ve had my moneys worth already! It’s nice to not actually have set objectives, to free roam around as well EVERYTHING!

I’ve not much more to say at the minute but as I’m currently floating around the sky as a set of leaves paired up with other leaves and breeding with them… here’s a thought.. if you want to play as anything and everything give this game a go.

Get more Settlers in Fallout 4

If you have trouble like me getting more #Settlers into your settlements then just follow the below steps that have helped me!

Food – The more food you have, the more people you can get. Just planting food will not be enough. You need to assign a worker to the food so it can be counted as a resource in your Workshop menu. To assign a worker, go into the workshop menu and click on a settler. This will make it so you are commanding him and can use him where you see fit. You can command them to harvest food, to go guard posts and work at work stations.

Recruitment Radio Beacon – You will need a generator, a power pylon connector and of course, the recruitment beacon. Place the generator anywhere you want and place the power pylon and recruitment beacon near it. Use triangle (Y on xbox) on the pylon to connect the wire to the generator AND therecruitment beacon. The beacon will automatically be on and you can turn it off if you think a settlement is getting to big. (I don’t always use the following sometimes just a beacon and a generator connected with a wire will do the job)

Water – Making sure you have enough water is another key. I try to keep it around 1 per person and normally go a bit overboard so I can stay away for awhile if new settlers come. A water pump doesn’t need to be manned by a settler and is pretty easy to make.

Beds – If you have 17 settlers, you need 17 beds. It is always good to have extra beds so new people can come and join while you are out adventuring. This is what I found the hard way, sometimes you just need to have more of everything to keep them happy.

Defenses – This isn’t 100% needed to get more settlers but it will help keep your settlers alive. Every now and then a camp of yours will be raided and you can go defend it. Placing turrets, traps and guard posts will increase the defense of a settlement and increase the odds of your settlers surviving.

You can assign a settler to work at a guard post to increase defenses with that. You can also give settlers new weapons and ammo to help out when the raiders attack. I would avoid explosives though, they are more likely to blow themselves up with it then use it properly.

I generally forget about the little camps from the #Minutemen missions and concentrate on building up the main ones first. You can always sort the smaller settlements out later on down the line. Currently I am building up the #Castle, #StarlightDriveIn and of course the #Sanctuary

Fallout 4 is back

A couple of weeks ago I posted “Bored of Fallout 4” this was because I got bored, I had destroyed the #Railroad, I destroyed the #Army with a Nuclear weapon. I was only left with the #MinuteMen and to be honest Preston was really getting on my nerves with made the game boring. Going around and keeping the settlements happy.

I decided to give it another go and this resulted in my buying the #SeasonPass which gave me access to the #Automatron, well if you don’t know what this is give it a go! It brings in Robots to the world of #Fallout and allows you to create your own. It makes the game a little more interesting but don’t do what I do and go after the #Mechanist straight way. It will cut the game short and now I am back in the same boat just helping out the settlements.

I’m going to carry on playing it for a while but I have a feeling it may go again very soon unless another add-on is released! 🙂

Bored of Fallout 4

Well it’s finally hit me, I have got bored of playing #Fallout4. It was all good up until I completely blew up and killed the #RailRoad and the #BrotherhoodOfSteel.

I made the mistake of joining the #Institute, the thought of knowing my son was the leader of the Institute I knew where I had to be. Now all the missions I have are the silly little ones from the #MinuteMen. I made a big mistake by killing the rest of the factions. I REALLY WISH I HADN’T gone down that route.

So now I find myself with rubbish side missions, getting very little XP, doing similar things over and over again, killing raiders, killing goules and having to go back and forth talking to Preston. Not what I call a fun game anymore. I refuse to start again and do the game a different way so I’m now on the hunt for another game to find and play that can get me as addicted as #Fallout4. Any recommendations?

PS4 Remote Play

This weekend I decided to start playing around with the #PS4 #RemotePlay application that #Sony has just released for Windows and Mac OSX. I was extremely excited to see this being released although it probably does mean my #Vita and #VitaTV are going to be made redundant now!

Download Link: https://remoteplay.dl.playstation.net/remoteplay/lang/en/index.html

Installation on Mac OSX, really easy, simply download from the site above and launch the app. I didn’t have to open any ports on my firewall, nor do any configuration. Simply sign in with your PSN ID and it should go away and find your PlayStation! Simples!

The only grumble in which I have and it’s nothing major is that you need to have your controller connected via USB which can be a bit of a pain in the arse.

I have tried this from my local network and also outside from my friends house and both worked exactly the same without any lag or frame drops. But I guess this also depends on your internet connection at both locations!

Apart from that… WELL DONE #SONY! You have done extremely well with this app!

Fallout 4 Addiction

I’ve played fallout 3 before and couldn’t really get into it, I found that wondering about in the wasteland getting attacked by random creatures, not having enough weapons or bullets to be just a little depressing and I couldn’t get a long with it.

Fallout 4 then got released and I decided to buy it, again I found it difficult to get into and getting killed in the commonwealth was just too much for me, then something happened… rather than just giving up I decided to carry on playing. “It’s not too bad this” I thought to myself and I suddenly went from level 5 to level 26 within the space of just a few weeks. (I put some serious gaming time in) to get to that level and went through joining the railroad and other various factions that appear throughout the game.

I appear to be getting withdrawal symptoms now though, whenever I don’t play it I feel something is missing in my life. This has never happened with a game before. I also try and play every spare minute I can, but this is getting too much. 1 hour turns into a full day of doing nothing but killing synths, monsters and raiders. It’s amazing.
