I have created some gameplay captures of my first 40 minutes of Fallout 4 after the initial tutorial section, missing out the setup of how you get into the vault. I have already put about 5 hours in and sampled much of what the new game is about. There have been some good and some bad, so far I think that it is a refined version of 3 and the graphics are certainly improved but things like the third person mode and general gameplay in the engine remain a little robotic and as I suspected the loading screens remain between indoor and outdoor areas.
I heard that there are the typical issues with stability that usually plague the Bethesda games but not really seen anything my self of this in fact even when capturing and encoding video the game still seemed stable. That said I have found the usual bugs and glitches (and may post another video of at least one.)\n\nI am also not a big fan that some of the gameplay mechanics that seemed fine have had a facelift such as removing the repair of weapons and armour. For someone who enjoyed finding duplicate weapons so I could fix up my old gun I end up picking up too many and realising that my inventory is full... I suppose you can sell them or scrap them at the base but I miss the old method.
That said I have been pleased that Bethesda do not mix with their formula in general and leave enough time between them to appreciate the game instead of the endless sequels of Assassins Creed that UbiSoft seems to think is what people want (even with lowered sales)
Note: After 10 hours I had my first crash in the lift to diamond city, I haven''t had any further ones and I am approaching 24 hours now.
