I played the Beta. Was really good from my perspective, sadly the engine hindered it quite a bit when things got hairy. If I remember correctly the Shi are Chines not Japanese, however it was stated that they were relearning their culture through kung fu movies. So heh. Maybe they assumed they were Japanese from a movie? That's the only justification I can give that might support the conflict in the writer's favor. However I strongly suspect it it was a choice of subjective favor on the writer's part. I'm on the fence on how they handled the Super Mutants and project Brazil, although there was a 4th wall wild wasteland dialog choice near the end. As a mod it's good, the liberties it takes with the lore are wonky but don't derail much. I give New California 7 squids, 2 cans of oil, and a severed arm.
