10 Questions We Still Have About Fallout 4 Before E3


Magnificent. Superlative. Droolworthy.

These are just a few adjectives that described Bethesda's pre-E3 reveal trailer for Fallout 4. The trailer sent the hype train into orbit, and was jam-packed with little hints and easter eggs that needed a trained eye to catch, and it left us with a bevy of questions before the big show kicks off.

30 of the Most Ridiculous Examples of Fallout Logic

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are two of the greatest games ever made. However, being as vast and expansive as they are only gives them more room to have some rather... err... "interesting" quirks.

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:

A couple months ago Redditor NoohjXLVII posted online, thanking Bethesda for Fallout 4, which he said helped keep his mind off a family tragedy.

“I have spent over 500 [hours] in this game,” NoohjXLVII wrote on the Fallout 4 Reddit (via Eurogamer). “Partly due to the fun gameplay, the new survival mode, and just the game in general. My dad passed away last year (age 56)... I didn’t take it well.”

He dealt with the pain through creating a bipedal sentry bot and naming it after his father -- GR-36 (father's name was Greg). Then, this summer NoohjXLVII was struck yet again by another devastating blow: he received a call that his 24-year-old brother was in the ICU. His brother passed away shortly thereafter, and his friends started up a GoFundMe, which details his medical condition.

“Thank you Bethesda for providing me with this wonderful game and distraction for everything I’m going through,” NoohjXLVII wrote.



“The words they use sound exactly like him, however he was also a pretty funny guy, full of puns,” NoohjXLVII wrote online yesterday, giving thanks to Bethesda, and saying he'd forever be in their debt.

“P.S.,” NoohjXLVII added. “Don’t feel guilty about taking his stuff! He insists you take it and in real life he would give you the shirt off of his back to help those in need.”
