Should I do an unarmed blogged play-through of Fallout 4?

  1. Yes, of course... Stop being a pussy and do it

  3. No, it will likely just be a waste of your precious, precious time.

    Soooo, here's the thing,

    I've done a couple of play-through blogs about beating fallout 3 & New Vegas using nothing but unarmed attacks, my head now wants to do the same for Fallout 4.

    however, I'm faced with a dilemma ...

    A - I hate Fallout 4
    B - If I do this then It's done on survival mode, and I'm all too well aware of what bullet-sponges there are already without engaging in a tickle-fight with a Deathclaw at the start of the damn game!

    Seriously though, that's not just power creep, that's fucking power-carpet bombing - "Hi welcome to fallout 4 here's one of the toughest enemies in the game! everything you meet from here on will seem dull, have fun!" )

    So, should I bother wasting my time in a game I really don't like playing simply for tradition of maintaining my *ahem* blog series?

    p.s yes I realise someone already did a 'non-violent' play-through within days of it's release, but I feel this is a slightly more testing concept as it allows me to see if I can 'break' the game within it's own rules.

    I would watched it. You would probably just rant all the way and it would be hilarious.

    You could most likely do it without too much difficulty. You can get the best possible unarmed weapon early in the game by killing Swan and it should be more or less downhill from there, the fact that melee in Fallout 4 sucks in general notwithstanding. I have no idea why you'd actually want to subject yourself to playing this game again, but hey, if your heart tells you to do it, then go for it.

    Are we talking like a sequin dress, mascot head, and powerfist play through or a serious type?

    If anyone invests time into a f4 video from NMA I would hope it would be exposing all the crap in a long-winded rant, or side track and make another Todd lies video. Those are always popular.

    I would say no. Doing a playthrough of a game you don't like is just going give you stress.

    When I say unarmed I literally mean -- no weapons ... Just fists.

    again ... no weapons at all ...

    sequin dress is a possible though.

    Heh, I say go for it. It'll be fun to watch you flounder in misery as you're unable to kill anything. I'll feel bad for you but I'll definitely be entertained.

    If you do go through with it be sure to bring some medicine for a headache.

    If you did this playthrough would you allow yourself to use companions or that perk that gives you the ability to pacify enemies? It seems like that would be the only feasible way to complete the game unarmed.

    Well, I'm my other play-though blogs I've always metagamed the crap out of things, that is to say, done things that do not correlate with the game world or are based purely on my personal knowledge of the game world that I would not 'normally' do within that gameworld.

    Such as:
    getting OP armour as soon as possible
    min-max stats (or in this case perks)

    And yes, this would include abusing 'game world assets' to overcome the shortfall of only having fists - In my New Vegas run I had a moral hiccup where I lured ghouls to some NCR troops knowing that he NCR would cause damage and act as a meat-sponge while I tidy the edges of the encounter.

    An update:
    It currently seems most people of the poll seem to think this is a bad Idea (4 for 8 against, 2 abstain), and I'm inclined to agree! I tried loading the game last night and literally found that I'd rather do ANYTHING ELSE than click a button in Steam that says [ ► play ]

    So, I think I've come up with a better option, one that I'd never contemplated before, I'll simply do a Fallout (1) run! I love that game, and honestly I think I'd prefer the challenge... (although... there is a small matter of a Deathclaw nest in that game...) righty oh, maybe I'll come back to Fallout 4 once the DLC are all released and I've had chance to forget how miserable the game makes me.

    You don't forget, I couldn't after trying to play it last night for the first time since November to do that kid in a fridge quest then record me killing him and the parents after reuniting them for your guys' enjoyment but I was only halfway through the quest before I exited the game due to sheer boredom after playing popamole by killing Bullet with my shitty little pistol.
    I don't get why Bethesda fans back this up and find it enjoyable, I just can't find any sense of enjoyment in this husk. If I were you I would just exit the game and not look back unless you must or if you're a masochist.
