VATS was waaaaaaaay overpowered in 3, to the point that upon returning to it I actually also found myself purposefully avoiding using it in fights just to make things even remotely interesting.

New Vegas toned it down a lot, but it also gave you ironsights as well, so you still had reasons to avoid it.
I know a lot of casual players got lots of enjoyment out of slo mo rapid fire headshots into enemies though.

I can see why people like it. For enemies that you overpower anyway it can at least make it entertaining.

Wait so it's been confirmed there's no karma system? Not being able to quantify my assholededness is kinda disappointing, but my biggest fear when they announced full VA for the MC was that dialogue would often be out of sync with my character's motivations while limiting the available choices & actions. Ran into that A LOT in Dragon Age...less so with Mass Effect due to it being written around a morality scale.

Hopefully Fallout is up to the task.

You can turn off the VA if you want.

after looking at the perks, heres my build:
S 6
P 4
E 1
C 6
I 5
A 3
L 3

endurance seems pretty useless, just stack up in radaways & Rad-X and I'm good. Going for a heavy weapon playthrough, I've never done a playthrough like that so I'm pretty excited! normally do stealth :)
Where did you find the perks?

I love VATS. It's one of the truly unique features in FO combat. There are plenty of FPS games out there to choose from. But none let me plan out my shots and watch sweet carnage and mayhem unfold in slow-mo.

I'm hoping them changing it from stopping time to just showing it down doesn't drastically change that aspect. I really only enjoy shooting in my own when sniping, otherwise it's VATS all day every day.

PC shots, Ultra settings

i7, 970
Wheeeew, lookin' good. I'm really hoping my i5-3570k doesn't screw up performance for me. My 970 should handle it fine, but I don't know how much being below the CPU requirements will hurt things.

I really don't have much use for END but man being able to breath underwater seems like it could be important for this game

PS those PC pics look dope. Makes me wish I had a gaming PC honestly.

Damn, I really hope those shots aren't really the PC version maxed. Aside from the lighting, they look god-awful in just about every way. This game isn't even a 75% off buy for me at this point.
