1. Hanging out with the crazy cat lady.
This one felt super appropriate because I was playing with a cat on my lap at the time. Let’s face it, if I was really in a post-apocalyptic universe I would be in the vault where the overseer was a cat…
2. Spending far too long customising in Sanctuary.
3. Catching up on the backstory.
I’m a newbie to the series, if there’s a dialogue option for further info I’ve asked it. Synths? The institute? The brotherhood of steel? Tell me more!
There’s also a good summary of the lore here.
What I’ve learned? Build a doghouse for him at Red Rocket and he’ll end up back there eventually.
5. Getting way too into the tunes on Diamond City Radio.
I don’t want to set the world on fireeeee, I just want to be a flame in your hearttttt
6. Not getting bugs
I’ve heard so much about people’s poor experiences but aside from the odd lost companion the gameplay has been smooth and easy.
7. Explaining baseball to crazies.
8. Restarting the game to see what happens if you don’t go to the vault.
*Spoiler alert* you die.
9. Power armor.
10. Doing the right thing.
I know, I know. Most people are busy being sarcastic, asking for money for their services and being a badass, ‘look out for yourself’ vault dweller. I like the idea of making the world a better place, spreading hope and helping because I want to. I’ve finished a lot of minuteman settlements across the Commonwealth and I think Preston Garvey has the hots for me. I’m okay with this.
What have you been up since launch?
