I was just about to ask the same thing. (OK im a little late replying)

I wasnt going to bother with this, but then when everyone (And by everyone I mean the grumbling internets) started complaining about it and it was only £20 or so I crumbled.

I just dont understand what the fuss is about - it just feels like another fallout game to me. Sure there are a couple of gripes - but its fallout. Im sure Bethesda has a team dedicated to crazy bugs ;)

I'm around level 27 I think. Biggest issue ive had is being kicked from a server doing a daily quest or it just refusing to give me ammo - or at least as much as I would like.

We're still playing well more off then on at the moment, so we're around level 8 at the moment.

PoddyMcQ and myself just started playing this around the New Year. Really enjoying it so far to be honest. Upto level 25/6 at the moment I think. I need a bigger stash and to find more weapon blueprints...

Username is Porkcrackling on Bethesda, so feel free to add me.

I was carrying (or storing in my stash box) all the blueprints/recipies I found for ages... till I realised that you just "use" them and your sorted :)
My stash box is currently full. And I notice theres at least a couple things that you cant scrap - which means they have to go in there. Not sure if you can just dump em on the floor :)

I added crackling last night - im HomerRamone if anyone wants to add me ! :)

For me its the worst game in the fallout series. Really disappointed :-\
I'm curious - what do you dislike about it ?
I've heard lots of people saying its terrible - but ive still not heard any reasons makes much sense.
The 2 most common ones seem to be:
Its really buggy
I'm certainly not going to say it doesnt have bugs- i'm sure thats a bullet point on the box with fallout games. They don't seem any worse than usual here though.

There are no NPCs
Those things wandering around - the ferals, supermutants, robots, molerats etc.. They are characters - non player ones. That makes them NPCs right ? You dont get given quests from them (well there's at least one you do ill avoid spoilers tho). but you get given the same kind of quests you have always been given in fallout. Go to this place and do/get/kill this thing.
(I guess you don't have the same "conversations" as such you have with people - but again I don't think this really changes the game-play at all - I wouldn't have really called the story writing in the previous games anything special)

Let me quickly add that i'm not saying your wrong here - not at all. (If you don't like it you don't like it!)
I'm just curious - so feel free to tell me "I just dont like it" :)
