Personal Quote: "Do we have any idea what to do for dinner?"
...and I'm still in the Tutorial basically. Liking it so far though. Some thoughts below.

* * *

1. @#$% that's a dark opening narration, even for Fallout.

2. Nice job setting up the neighborhood, even if you don't leave the house until the bombs start dropping.

3. Boo. "Lance" isn't on the list of One Thousand Names. And you don't get to name your spouse.

4. Double Boo for using "War, war never changes" twice in the opening.

5. Okay, how did Nora grab Shaun in the one second between me turning away to look at the TV and then turn back to her?

6. Okay, we weren't directly outside when the bombs began dropping, though we were close. The trailers lied.

7. Oh, wow. They literally fridged Nora. OTOH it could have been my husband, so equal opportunity there at least.

7a. But it's not all that bad, since she was a lawyer. Rimshot!

Cricket chirp

7b. Because "Lawyer" automatically means "deserves to be murdered". That's funny. Because, um, nobody likes lawyers..., moving on.

8. Okay, they shot Nora and then stole Shaun, and I got frozen briefly again. Which means Shaun is somewhere between one and two hundred years old at this point. And maybe a Ghoul.

9. The "For Your Safety" notice at the Vault's lift made me laugh.

10. Oh, God. Poor Codsworth! If this is what the morphs felt like in FYS while the Ring was being built, I'm feeling a bit guilty at this point.

11. BTW I wish people would stop bitching about the graphics in this game. Yeah, it's not as pretty as Arkham Knight, but it's seven years ahead of Fallout 3, and that's good enough.

12. First big combat helping the Minutemen. VATS is proving a bit counter intuitive.

13. Also, while giving me power armor this early (and not making me do a stupid Brotherhood quest string) is nice, how do I get out of it?

14. Not liking the Community Building stuff. There's no tutorial for it. It's just sink or swim. Fortunately I figured it out eventually.

15. Last thought. For a guy who just saw his wife shot two hours ago, Lone Survivor is being remarkably stoic.

Pleasure to meet you! And yeah, I did put together the DotL page, though it needs one of the comic cover pages to be added to make it look nice.
