Guys... I think I’ve lost my gamer mojo. I’ve playing Fallout 4 since Sunday morning and not once have I felt any kind of emotion towards the game. On one hand it’s great to have another sandbox with a bunch of places to explore, on the other... Blergh it’s just another sandbox with a bunch of places to explore.

The thing is, in the 30 hours I’ve played nothing special has happened in the game, I don’t care about my son being kidnapped, and apparently nor does the voice actor of my character.

I hate that finding Dogmeat is no longer a special moment cause he’s forced to join your party right at the start of the game. Yet, for some strange reason I feel bad to leave him behind because I’m a stupid person that has feelings for a dog that doesn’t even exists!

The crazy occurrences that would happen all the time in FO4 and NV are gone... or if they exist I haven’t been able to find those funny places. Seriously the people in this game are not as quirky or bizarre as they were in previous titles. Maybe it’s a Boston thing?

Of course, not everything is negative. First of all... I’m still playing the game and I don’t think I’ll stop anytime soon. But man, doesn’t the whole experience feels like a drag! I’m wishing that the few good things I’ve found so far outweight the issues I have with the game...

Tonight’s topic: Which 2015 title has disappointed you so far? Do you have hopes that the game can turn the tables and win your heart?


Tonight’s jam is brought you by Charles Mingus and his big band!
