People can you fell it! Just one more day before Fallout 4 is out. At first I could wait, but now if I wait anymore I’m going to explode like if someone with the bloody mess perk shot me. How do I know that particular perk will be in the game? I didn’t until a few days ago when the tech times website reported someone got their hands on all the perks listed in the upcoming game. Yes just one segment of a battery of Fallout 4 fallout of information people were able to acquire through less than legit means. While I myself had the willpower not to look at anything so far, for the perks I gladly took a peak. If nothing else it will get me ready for the game tomorrow, and if you guys want to see behind the curtain as well just click here. They say it contain spoilers in the perks lists – but not really.

 

 

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Luck

 

As we come to the end of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video series we take a look at the most other worldly stat in Fallout: Luck. Now you people may not be superstitious in real life, but in the wasteland you’ll need all the help you can get and being lucky where it counts will save you. Think about it; an invisible hand helping you making better shots, find better loot, making the impossible possible. And since this is Fallout you can run with it with wild and crazy elements including fan fav Mysterious Stranger.  Sadly no matter how high you put luck it doesn’t break the game in your favor; you’ll still die, get crap gear, and say the wrong thing to the wrong bandit lord from time to time. However if you hate life and want a  hardcore run of Fallout 4 then by all mean reduce luck to 1.  You’ll be beating of the yao guai with the stick in no time – seriously because you’ll won’t be able to find any good weapons with a 1 in luck. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Agility

 

Now we move on to the most popular stat in the Fallout series – Agility.  For good reason though as Agility is the main stat for standard firearms efficiency , dodging death blows, and stealthy sneak attacks. All good things but the main advantage to Agility is that it increases the effectiveness of V.A.T.S. or the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System. That system is what makes Fallout stand out from the rest, it allows players to target vital areas on your enemies  to cripple or disarm or (for 97% of fallout players) shoot / whack their heads off. The more agility you have the better your V.A.T.S. so it’s always a popular choice just for having cool glamour shots in Fallout. Of course you’ll be doing more than shooting things in the game (maybe, I don’t know), but if this is your first Fallout put at least 7 point into this one – you thank me later.

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Intelligence

 

Even though I’m a Charisma man through and through it always a good idea to focus on Intelligence as well. Think about it, in the super futuristic reality of the atomic age (before the holocaust) everything was powered by the mighty atom: robots, cars, even some of our food. Now how many of those things were made or controlled by a computer? Try all of them. Don’t you think it will be smart to at least try to turn off the laser turret shooting at you than throwing rocks at it like a super mutant? Heck you might even be able to make it fight for you instead, it’s a win-win. That being said… There’s also advantages of being stupid in the wasteland, mostly comedy, but hey it’s your call.

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Charisma

 

What makes a good leader? It is bravery? It is loyally? It is money? Nope – it Charisma! Yes Charisma, it’s that quality that makes you the coolest person in the room. That special (word play totally intended) something that  people can’t learn, earn, or buy – unless you talking about the Fallout series then that stuff is totally buyable which you really should. Now this is from personal experience but charisma is a far more useful stat than any combat stat in the game. With it you can influence people, get information easier, get cheaper rates from the merchants, even have your allies fight harder for you. It’s win x infinity as far as I’m concerned with it, while without it can be quite a chore getting anywhere.

 

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Endurance

 

Now fokes having super strength is awesome and being a stealthy mofo is l33t, but sooner or later you will be punch in the mouth. If you want your adventure in the wasteland not to end before it really even began then invest into your Endurance. Keeps you happy, healthy, and most importantly not dead on the first blow you suffer. Want to know more, then please inform yourselves with the video provided above.

 

 

 

The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Perception

 

It’s time for another helpful S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video to infotain players of the upcoming Fallout game. They covered strength last time which is fine because when you’re carrying power armor, a laser mini gun, and other scavenged goodies the last thing you need is to lose quick travel because you’re too heavy. However let’s face it Strength is a utility skill mostly, Perception on the other hand may not seem all that useful it does give a resorceful player pleaty to work with as the video will show.
