    Fallout 4 is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. The fifth major installment in the Fallout series, the game was released worldwide on November 10, 2015 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    So I got burned doing a dlc quest and my character started glowing orange and wouldn't stop, basically the lava texture became my skin. Couldnt fix it so i reloaded and was able to get it so only my hands are orange for some reason. It looks kind of cool, but I really wish it wasn't there. A bit annoying to spend 4 full days with this character and now it looks like a glitch

    Never thought I would enjoy a game from this series but got this due to a lack of new games to play. Really enjoying it.

    I had an issue where my companion was permanently downed, and another instance where they came out of the water swimming on land. Had to load back and lose progress :(

    My lava hands went away after a long play session thankfully. I beat the DLC. It was really good for 10 dollars. No Shivering Isles of course but a decent few hours worth of quests. The final dungeon specifically was one of the game's biggest. Having a lot of fun building robots too. It's weird making Codsworth look different. They look great when they fight.

    The Tesla gun is sweet. I'm putting most of my points in robotics now. Problem is I'm level 50+ and I didn't have very many points in intelligence before the dlc.

    I'm not terribly far in this game but I love every second I spend with it. booting it up now for what I am hoping will be an all day session.

    This game is incredible. I've put about 75 hours in so far (level 45 ish) and only completed 2 main story quests. There's just so much to explore I can't stay on task for very long but I don't hate it!

    Started a new character the other week that I will be using for DLC. Although I'm not as addicted to this as I was Fallout 3 and New Vegas, this is still such a strong game and remain perplexed at the backlash this got by some fans.

    What was the backlash all about? Do you know specific examples of what people didn't like?

    Only put about 10 hours or so into this game so far but it's really fun. I love the exploration and open world aspect of it. Not a huge fan of the combat mechanics but they're not terrible. Also I constantly have too many items and have to keep dropping stuff haha.

    Invest in the lone wanderer perk, it lets you carry a lot more weight when not traveling with a companion and dogmeat doesn't count as a companion so you get the boost to your carry weight as well as having dogmeat carry stuff too.

    Wait the companion can carry items? If so, that is very good to know haha. This is the first Fallout game I've played so I'm still a noob. Thanks!

    Yup, all companions can carry items, start talking to them then hit "trade" and just transfer anything you don't need to them. That's how you can equip them with various types of armor or new guns, just highlight the new item you want them to equip then at the bottom it should tell you which button actually equips that item (Y on xbox).

    Awesome. Thanks for that info! That will be very helpful.

    Dialogue was the big one. I think people felt they stripped down a lot of the rpg elements or maybe expected a huge step up from other Bethesda games. Personally I love it.

    @Vivatoto I guess I can understand that, it is quite different than previous games. I actually like how they don't show the full dialogue, it got a bit distracting sometimes.

    Does anyone know if doing the DLC before completing the main story has any negative effects?

    I'm over 100 hours in at this point at level 58 and still haven't gone to find Nick Valentine. I feel like this game may never end and I'm ok with that.
