Fallout 4 is a true classic among fans of the Fallout franchise. While it may have some faults, most will agree that the game has led to some of the most impressive gameplay in the series thus far, and the modding communities of the world have only added to this experience. Here are five essential mods for Fallout 4 that drastically improve the sense of enjoyment while playing the game.

1. Full Dialogue Interface

There’s no doubt that Full Dialogue Interface, by Cirosan, is already one of the most popular mods among Fallout 4 players. The mod takes the very vague dialogue options from the base game and replace the options with the full lines spoken by the player character. In previous titles, the player character did not speak audibly, and dialogue was achieved with selections from a list. This mod goes back to this style of gameplay, and actually allows you to see what your character is going to say. There’s few things worse than saying something you didn’t want to say, and this mod offers a handy fix.

2. Lasers Have No Recoil

Lasers Have No Recoil, by SephDragoon, fixes a scientific inaccuracy from the Fallout franchise- Lasers simply have no recoil. Conventional firearms do because of the nature of their ammunition, where an explosion propels a projectile. Newton’s Third Law of motion states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. When the bullet is fired, the same force that fired the bullet pushes back into your body. However, lasers propel no projectile- the harmful part of the laser is the energy being emitted at the target. Instead, lasers expel excess energy as heat. A video by Shoddycast, which is actually the inspiration for this enjoyment-enhancing mod, explains the principles better.

Science aside, this mod helps the feel of energy weapons in the game, and makes them a much more appealing option over firearms.

3. Pre War Safes

This simple tweak, by Amstrad, makes one simple change to the game. Pre-war safes no longer contain pipe weapons! It was always strange to come across a safe that had been locked for over two hundred years and find a homemade pistol or rifle inside. If there’s no nuclear war, why make your own gun? This mod replaces instances of pipe weapons in safes marked as “pre-war” by Fallout 4 with actual timeline-appropriate weapons. Safes used by actual wasteland residents, however, can still spawn with these weapons.

4. Craftable Armor Size

Dislaimer: Craftable Armor Size, by John Doe Bowler, will NOT re-grow your character’s hair, nor alter their facial hair. What it does do, however, is allow the player to craft the varying armor sizes found in the game. Armor and weapon modifications are an important part of Fallout 4, and as the player’s level increases, upgraded versions of armor pieces can be looted. This mod brings these upgrades to the crafting mechanics, and can help augment the player’s armor-crafting capabilities.

5. Legacy SPECIAL

While there are many mods out there that modify the SPECIAL stats the player character has, this mod is a good choice for those players that are loyal to earlier versions of the game. Fallout 4 only gives the player 28 SPECIAL points to distribute, where previous titles offered 40. This mod brings the total once more to 40, and can be edited to the player’s liking.

Make sure to comment on what mods you think are most essential to playing Fallout 4!

Larian Reveals Baldur’s Gate 3’s Mildest Multiclass Builds

Since the excellent Baldur’s Gate 3 has been out in the wild for a while, interesting data can be gleaned, such as how players choose to play an innovative new RPG from home. Stats from developer Larian Studios and posted on the PlayStation Blog show that most people want to play as a stealthy archer like in Skyrim when given nearly limitless options.

According to a fascinating graph, Rogue/Ranger is the most popular multiclass build, with over 175,000 players using it to snipe unsuspecting enemies from range. The next two builds reveal similarly. 150,000 played Barbarian/Fighter because they loved pummeling things, and 109,00 played Barbarian/Paladin, which lets players talk to their victims before beatings.

More sense emerges as you descend. If the Paladin/Warlock/Sorcerer/Bard has high Charisma, any combination can be interesting. Charisma helps these classes cast spells and abilities and interact with NPCs outside of combat.

Playing a single class through Baldur’s Gate 3 feels great, which is what most players do. A pure Fighter or Wizard becomes so powerful by game’s end that we don’t blame you for not mixing things up!

Play as a Tiefling Oathbreaker Paladin, Dark Urge Origin (which you must resist), or Bard for real moral dilemmas. You could also play pseudo-Aragorn again.

Techland is continuing to release Dying Light 2 content as part of its long-term support. This is surprising since the meaty Good Night, Good Luck update was released a few months ago. It’s nice to know what’s coming, but no timeline was given.

IGN-exclusive roadmap trailers reveal more co-op missions, board quests, a tower raid, and replayable GRE anomalies. Executions and finishers may be added to the April Gut Feeling update, which overhauled melee mechanics. Graphical options, weapon repair, gear, and mod dismantling are always welcome.

Knives, polearms, and more enemy variants are coming, including a Nightmare difficulty. Changes to NG+ include firearms. Players can finally dress to their hearts’ content with new cosmetic options.

Has Techland’s Dying Light 2 support lured you back? Would you rather focus on something new?

Epic to Globalize V-Buck Price Hike

Epic Games expanded the Fortnite V-Buck “pricing alignment” after laying off almost 900 employees, citing “inflation and currency fluctuations”. Fortnite’s premium currency will rise in international markets, including the largest.

Epic Games will raise the price of V-Bucks and real money content packs in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Eurozone countries, Hungary, Japan, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Turkey, and the US (including all US Dollar storefronts) on October 27.

Raising the price of this fictitious currency was successful when the company trialed it in the UK, Canada, and Mexico, so it was decided to announce it worldwide now. These USD increases range from $1 (1000 V-Bucks, previous $7.99) to $10 (13,500 V-Bucks, previous $79.99).
