    Fallout 4 is gonna suck big time but it could have been alot worse if they had included that horrible character Three Dog from Fallout 3. But fortunatley he wont be on the game! I know this wont save Fallout 4 from being ruined by Bethesda but anyway.

    I used to think that PC Gamer was a serious gaming mag but if one of their journalists calls Three Dog a good character that really tells something of the journalist working at PC Gamer. Or is it a joke?

    Three Dog a good character??!

    People actually needed to be warned that their guns wouldn't work if broken.

    I'm sure Bethesda will invent a character just as pointless.

    I thought he just advised people to keep their guns clean just in case?

    Well games of a certain intellect level resonate with people of a certain intellect level.

    If by bringing it to life they mean trivialize the entirety of the setting by having a DJ that is only obssesed with the player even when there should be more urgent shit going on in the wateland than the player collecting glowing Sodas then sure.

    Who says they won't make another NPC DJ named Four Dog? Then pat themselves on the back for making a shit reference while Todd whispers more lies in everyone's ears.

    I understand why people hate him, but I always found Moira to be more offensive, for the simple reason that she was a major character with a lot of quests attached. And she was really stupid, I mean like really stupid, not game stupid where she is just writen like that, heir writing was worse than 3Dogs in my opinion. But hey, I am glad that both characters are gone by now! Anyway ... I am sure someone will take up their place, seems the BoS guy with the laser-carbine might be a good candidate, we will see :V

    Her survival guide with such information as "Mines are harmful" and "Don't get irradiated" and let's not forget the "Molerat sticks and how not to make them".... 200 years after the war, you would think people would know that fra mines are dangerous and how to hunt at least small mammals.

    Hunt... things? Nah we just survive on magical macaroni from two hundred years ago. I can't believe you actually proposed legitimate hunting and killing animals for food... you savage!

    Also you gotta wonder how the fuck people even get said guide when there is no functioning communication between settlement and the printer is in the middle of a raider infested ruin. It would've made more sense if Moira was in say the supposed trading hub of the region (yeah the 4 house town) and she had a printer with her and the guide was part a way to help people and part a way to make more money for Canterbury commons. Then again, too complicated for bethesda.

    Agreed... but you do realise money only exists for the player so he can use it on guns and shit? It's not like we need it!

    As much as it hate the Moira character, i think it is a pretty conscious move from Bethesda to make the character as despicable as possible. So i can't really blame them for, at least once, succeeding in reaching a goal. The problem comes from the fact they ultimately take her too much seriously by actually releasing the book.

    About 3dogs, it doesn't mean much. Sure, THAT 3dogs won't be there, but it doesn't prevent them to introduce any other 3dogs, that works essentially the same. Someone magically aware of everything you do and only things you do, that praise/blame you all the time on public radio channels, radio channels that are listened almost everywhere in the gameworld, and yet, nobody aknowledge what you did, nobody use that knowledge to trust/distrust you further. It doesn't matter who deliver the lines if they don't change the way this thing work.

    Well ... to be fair ... that is actually a point that would make sense in my opinion, since not even today everyone takes care from mines/explosives like in Afghanistan and radiation and it's dangers might be forgotten after 200 years! Particularly by the common people. Though, the writing of the Survival guide was simply stupid.

    It's for me really just that Moira is writen to be stupid in a game where every NPC is stupid. No NPC in Fallout 3 is intelligent and you have always to assume that they are stupid, even the one that are meant to be serious. Scientists are stupid, doctors are stupid, your dad is stupid, President Eden is stupid, your companions are stupid, the BoS, the towns. Simply everyone is stupid. Now if you try to write a stupid character to be inherently stupid in a setting full of already stupid characters is ... well .. .stupid. Moira could have worked if she was the ONLY stupid character in the game.

    Did I already said that she was stupid?

    Moira's pitfall isn't her stupidity, it's her tedious intonation. In my naive and younger self I always presumed that she would have written on how to disarm mines, etc, but thinking on it, she probably just wrote 'don't step on them!'.

    What I want to know is why he's called Three Dog, because that's a weird bloody name. I question that before I question Scaborous Scrotus or Ballsack Jonathan or whatever the new names are in the MM franchise.

    Where there 2 other previous Dogs before him?

    The problem with the content of her book is that her idea of research is sending some dude to step on mines and tell her "My atoms are screaming" when asked about radiation. It would've been more interesting to show that she has other helpers doing research for her and that your input would actually sound like a knowledgeable person talking about it instead of you just giving "smug" answers. And if her writting had shown her as a knowledgeable, maybe even smart person who just looks stupid because of her excentric behavior and maybe a little bit of insanity, instead we got... this



    [SCIENCE] Odd it appears that the burst of radiation has turned you into a ghoul.

    How scientific.


    Also is 200 years after the war, you would think people would know how to hunt small animals and to not step into poison.

    Yeah, it would have been really really awesome if inteligence answers would have been actually acurate SCIENTIFIC answers, explaining for example in detail what radition actually is. Like with the ionisation and particles and all that science mumbling. But that would have actually required some kind of research.
