Yes indeed, it turns out the latest addition in what's quickly becoming an irritable string of incessant Fallout 4 add-ons allows players to capture, then pit monsters up against one another in a gladiatorial arena.
That's pretty much all there is to get amped about here though; and if we're being entirely honest, this should've been included as part of the original game! Kind of a dickish move on Beth's part to require us to download another DLC to build walls and roofs freed from the perils of having holes in 'em.
Plus, there's the whole Preston Garvey surviving bit...
Like, seriously, man? At least the Automatron add-on spawned strangely transfixing creations like this though:
How's your vault doing? Hit by any radroaches lately?
At least some of your vaults must be thriving, because the free to play mobile game Fallout Shelter made over five million dollars in its first two weeks on the market. It even managed to free us from the tyranny of Candy Crush in the top 3 iOS apps list.
Surprised by its success? So is Bethesda; Fallout Shelter was meant to be marketing for Fallout 4, not a money making Behemoth. According to Fallout 4 director Tom Howard, "The main thing it has done is give us more faith that the gaming audience is enormous, and they don’t care what device they’re playing on," so don't be surprised to see more mobile games in the future.
If you're an Android user who's pissed you haven't been able to get your hands on Fallout Shelter, worry not, relief is coming; they're working on an Android version to be released soon.
Marcy Long's built herself quite the reputation as the Commonwealth's most hated character. Fallout fans just can't stand the chick, AND she was marked as an essential character, which made her impossible to kill in the game. This dude straight up fires her out of a junk mortar:
And then there's the whole bizarre tutorial of how to get rid of Marcy Long with a f**king Deathclaw:
Well the latest patch to hit Fallout 4 changes all that. The list of fixes in the update includes actual bugs, but also this little weird tidbit:
Jun and Marcy Long are no longer essential after completing “Sanctuary”
My running theory here...Bethesda was all about fixing the players' collective disgust toward Marcy Long. The hate was too real. People took it as far as creating mods in Fallout 4, where you could manage to kill Marcy Long.
Anyways, the reactions so far seem to be pretty dang positive:
