Fallout 4: Nuka-World review – The evil of two evils

The final DLC for Fallout 4 was always going to have a lot to live up to. I’ve been impressed with the previous content add-ons, so Nuka-World had a bit of giant slaying to do to stand out, something which it falls short of accomplishing. Although it starts strong, it manages to condense everything that annoyed me about the vanilla game and put it into one neat package. That’s not to s...[Read More]

Fallout 4 Nuka World makes you reconsider ghouls

Fallout is always at its best when balancing the bleakness of a nuclear apocalypse and a bit of humour.

Well, good news for fans of awful moral choices and self doubt! Fallout 4‘s latest DLC Nuka World has the per...[Read More]

Fallout 4 Automatron review: The Silver Shroud strikes again

  Some of you may be hesitant to reenter Fallout 4 for the latest Automatron DLC, I know I was. It’s like reopening an old wound that could take another 90 hours to heal, I wasn’t sure that my spare time can take a hit of  that magnitude again. Well it turns out that Automatron won’t take up too much of your time, and I’m okay with that. The DLC presents the Lone Wande...[Read More]

  It’s a scientific fact that dogs are the best thing in the universe, and that’s no different in the world of Fallout 4. A new mod allows players to wander around the wastelands of Boston as a dog. Of course playing as a dog has its drawbacks. You can’t use weapons, you can only bite, and you can only access dog armour. But that doesn’t matter much, because you get to...[Read More]

Fallout 4’s ending made me feel empty inside

This article contains spoilers for Fallout 4, so turn back now unless you want the ending of Bethesda’s latest RPG nuked for you. After 70 hours of gameplay in the wastelands of Fallout 4 it seemed about time to do something truly repulsive.
