Bought it at launch and played it for a week and now I can't get back into it.

Anyone else play this game. I think its one of the best games of 2015

I've logged about 4 or 5 days of gameplay on it. Currently level 33 and have already gotten Piper, Cogsworth and Preston's affinity perks; I'm working on Strong's but he dislikes a LOT of the things I prefer doing (use power armor, pick locks, and crafting). The Glowing Sea is a pretty interesting place with only about 7 or 8 proper locations within it-there's also some cherry X-01 power armor in a military bunker.

The tweaks to power armor are interesting, especially in regard to swimming. The stuff was just treated like any other suit of armor in 3/NV; in 4, you sink like a rock and really feel like you're in a mobile tank.

I'm currently level 45, and haven't even been to Diamond City yet. LOL. I've been taking my sweet old time exploring the entire northern region first. I'm not far from reaching Diamond City now though.

I know this much, The Final Voyage of the U.S.S. Constitution is the most hilarious thing I've taken part in in a Fallout game, hands down.

The desire to finish off some of the final trophies in MGS V has kept me from getting back to it but I've done a few things since my last post.

I'm level 39 or so (held off on the perk from 38 so I could advance Gun Nut and Armorer to level 4). Finally got Strong's affinity perk and went back to about four locations to salvage discovery power armor frames and mess with all of the locks and computers I could've picked and hacked. I've been using Curie as a follower but have recently discovered that I won't be able to max out her affinity until I complete a personal quest that only unlocks once I make it further into the main story. I'm considering taking up Macready (Little Lamplight's Mayor from Fallout 3), Cait, or Nick as my next companion but I last saved in front of the toys factory for that one ghoul in the Slog.

The Strong Back perk line is interesting, but the third level perk is a tad irritating; you can move while encumbered but it eats away your AP. Being able to travel when I'm carrying 9x my capacity is a huge boon.

Armaments
One of my go-to weapons has been this Wounding 10mm pistol I got from a Legendary Raider. Every hit applies a stacking -25 hit point effect (I discover that it's doesn't actually bleed foes because the depletion effect even works on robots and turrets). After fully crafting it out for damage, hip-fire accuracy, and rapid fire, it drops foes quickl; I have enough AP to fire off 14 shots with a full bar.

I also seem to have an uncanny luck for acquiring Missile Launchers. I've scored a Lucky one, an Exterminator's one off of a Mirelurk Killclaw, an Assassin's one off of a Raider around Hyde Park, and one or two other ones with special qualities.

The most effective gun I have found was one that I purchased from a vendor in Bunker Hill, called the Spray & Pray. I hadn't even maxed out (or even selected) the perks that are associated with it (demolition expert and commando) and I was still killing previously difficult baddies with ease. I love that gun.

As of now, I am at level 53. STILL have not entered Diamond City, but the mission there I have already completed because I stumbled upon Valentine in the subway Vault while exploring. Diamond City will be my next stop.

I currently have Preston, MacCready, Cait, Strong, Codsworth, and Dog Meat to choose from as companions so far.

I'm a big fan of the Spray & Pray as well, just be careful when firing it off in close quarters; I've had enough exchanges where I accidentally crippled my arms or my legs from firing it at close enemies to be mindful of enemy distance.

I'd recommend taking MacCready as a companion, especially if you've played Fallout 3. His Killshot perk says that it only boosts your chances of hitting a head in VATS by 20%, but I've had several instances where the enemy's head was displaying 95% while every other area was 50% or less. Cait and Strong's Perks suit the berserker archetype (Having both perks means that you'll crit more often and gain more damage/damage resistance when at 25% max hit points or less).

I know what you mean when it comes to close quarter combat and the Spray & Pray. It's also annoying when your companion goes close quarters and you keep hitting him/her/it and busting up their Power Armor.

Am I the only one that doesn't use VATS?

I had far more fun with this game than the latest Zelda, and I'm a huge Nintendo guy. It is what it is.

Nope. Fallout 76 proper is an ongoing garbage fire between lackluster content, screwing up offers of a canvas bag for nylon and offering a mere $5 in virtual currency (which buys you almost nothing) and customer service accidentally leaking customer's information.
