The Bethesda RPG dilemma

  What most of us love about Bethesda’s RPG games is the ability to become another person. For instance in real life I’m not a female elf who can shoot fire out of her hands, but I could totally be that in Skyrim if I wanted to. It’s part of the fun of playing an RPG, imagining you are something you’re not. It’s also part of the reason people sink hundreds of hours of playtime into thes...[Read More]

Charlie’s top three games of 2015

  With 2015 all but over it’s that time of the year for arbitrary lists of stranger’s opinions. But you should trust this stranger’s opinion because I spent most of the year playing games, and nobody payed me off for good scores because nobody paid me, so yeah, integrity.  Without further delay, here are my top three picks for games of 2015 (and some honourable mentions) , t...[Read More]

Tom’s top three games of 2015

  2015 was a pretty good year for games. So good, in fact, that I predicted it would be really hard to choose my own personal Game of the Year. And boy was it. I haven’t agonised over a decision like this in anything other than a Telltale game in a long time. Honourable mentions: But before we get into that, here are some shout outs to the games that were great, but honestly just not qu...[Read More]

Fallout 4: 100 Nuke Mines VS. Behemoth

  As we’ve previously demonstrated, it’s fun to blow up stuff in Fallout 4. Last time it was four bottle cap mines, eight fragmentation mines, two cryo mines and a pulse mine VS. a Deathclaw, which went as expected. This time it’s 100 nuke mines (with a total of 30,100 damage) taking down a lone Behemoth, the result of which made my dogs howl in real life and may have broken...[Read More]

300 BoS vs. 30,000 Deathclaws

  We love a good NPC battle in Fallout 4. In fact we have shared some of our favourites since the game launched. This one however takes the cake. And by cake we mean pushes modern computing to the limits… this guy’s rig must be next level. Prepare to witness 300 Brotherhood of Steel vs. 30,000 Deathclaws. Yes that is the correct amount of zeros. Well, that was an unexpected result...[Read More]

Fallout 4: snapshots from the wasteland 3

  While reviewing Fallout 4, I quite enjoyed it by the way, I took a fair few screenshots to use in the piece. I only used a few of them in the final piece but I had so many others that I felt the need to share them. You’ll notice I seem to favour a particular gun, that’s because she’s amazing and has gotten me out of many sticky situations. Her name is “Boom StickR...[Read More]

Fallout 4: How exploring turned into a nightmare

  Fallout 4 has pretty much turned into an obsession for every writer at LoadScreen. Since I’m very close to the end game and don’t want to pick a faction I’ve been endlessly exploring the wastelands, searching for loot and shooting raiders right in the groin. This exploration bender has been going on for some time and up until yesterday it was mostly care free. Not anymore,...[Read More]

Fallout 4: How to kill a Deathclaw

  Sometimes bosses in Fallout 4 can be pretty overpowered, such was the case with this Deathclaw. During our first encounter the most powerful gun I had, a beefed up Kellog’s Pistol, barely scratched it. Not accepting defeat I got creative… this is why you need to hoard stuff in RPGs. Incidentally the ensuing chaos made the game glitch pretty hard. If you want to make your game gl...[Read More]

Fallout 4 review: say goodbye to life for a while

Reviewed on: PC Fallout 4 is a beast of a game. I have spent a better part of the past eight days wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Boston and have barely scratched the surface of everything this game has to offer. As many have come to expect from a Bethesda Game Studios title, Fallout 4 features not only an open world story-based game, but one littered with over arching side stories, ra...[Read More]

Fallout 4: The tale of Swan

The following article contains spoilers regarding a random boss encounter in Fallout 4. Some of you may have been to Boston Common in Fallout 4. It’s a seemingly nice little square with a small pond located in the centre and a boathouse. But as you start to search through the area you soon realise something is terribly wrong in the Common. A named character Kath is found mangled, in her poss...[Read More]

Fallout 4: More wasteland battles

  We’ve previously covered how great it is when you set up massive battles in Fallout 4. Through the magic of modding YouTuber Tyrannicon has continued to pit unfathomable amounts of enemies against each other to witness who comes out on top. In his latest videos you can watch 50 Radscorpions vs. 50 Mirelurks vs. 50 Ghouls:   60 Deathclaws vs 60 Brotherhood of Steel: And last but certai...[Read More]

Fallout 4: Snapshots from the wasteland 2
