This Is Not A Review: Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

FO4_Experiment

Brad Gallaway recently rolled out a new column titled This Is Not A Review. In it he discusses general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game he’s playing, but not reviewing. It’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z. I’m hijacking his column to offer my impressions on Fallout 4‘s latest DLC — Vault-Tec Workshop, which is developed and published by Bethesda for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Team Fortress 3?

HIGH: Launching into the air and landing the perfect Pharah ultimate

LOW: The feeling of helplessness against a Bastion/Reinhardt combo

WTF: A Play of the Game in which Junkrat kills himself and three others by flooding a room with grenades.


Doom (PS4) Review

Doom. Doom never changes

HIGH Remembering to use the one-hit kill chainsaw in a tight spot

LOW Frustrating boss fights
