Thanks to a new Status Menu for settlers that lets you know if they're being lazy and not meeting their daily Tato quota. Which then makes the dispensing of corporal punishment just that little bit more justifiable. As opposed to tyrannical. It can also be used as a handy tool to properly manage any settlement peacefully. Apparently. Anyway Fallout 4 has been patched! Released today for the PC version, with PS4 and Xbox One coming soon, the latest Fallout 4 patch also brings a number of improvements and bug fixes to the game.

The PC looks like it's also getting some graphical love with the addition of HBAO+, the fanciest and most advanced of the lighting effects. Spiffy.

In other Fallout-related news it looks like Bethesda is holding another E3 conference this year, which is neat. And a bit surprising as the one for last year seemed to only exist to service the announcement of Fallout 4. What will this year's show bring? Only time will tell. Literally, because it's still a bunch of months away.

Got properly stuck into this recently, have been enjoying it, though I don't like the settlement building in first person (if it zoomed out to some top down view that'd be awesome).

My god is it buggy though, and difficult to get running well, what a joke! It's basically F3 with a different setting and fairly lifeless.

I love Fallout but still disappointed Bethesda didn't put the effort in to make it a great game.

It's a great game but getting rid of actual stats and just having perk levels is what f***ed it, that and shallow dialogue and pretty bland areas where nothing interesting is happening.

Yeah I'm regretting throwing so many points into charisma, the conversation is shallow as.
