    Ah I was only kidding, seriously though I wanted to see something like that. It's just a feature though right? Ha those saying the AI is improved are full of shit.

    Yeah it was hilarious. The AI is so shitty, you can make a comedy series 'Fallout 4: AI Fails'.

    Ready for some screenshots of silly shit?

    So, yeah, I got a pretty overpowered weapon that deals limb damage to the legs regardless of where I shoot so guess what happens when I shot a damage sponge? Their legs cripple. But when it comes to ghouls their legs come off. So here we got a ghoul, still alive, missing three limbs (which is ridiculous to begin with) and is floating in the air.

    Next up, clipping dead'uns. This happens quite commonly for me with ghouls and molerats.

    You thought I was kidding about my weapon being OP? I thought ghouls who'd lost their legs would still be crawling after you? These motherfuckers just lied there and allowed my power armor to kill them through static electricity.
    everybody get the fuck down.jpg

    And finally, some ayy lmao.

    So, yeah, either Bethesda should patch the limb loss out when it comes to their legs or they should patch in animations and attacks for crawling. I dunno what they'd do about the one in the first screenshot though. Maybe just let him lie there and wail at me with his one lone arm until I cut that one off too. 'Tis but a fleshwound!

    The faces of the Feral Ghouls are much less detailed now than they were in the previous games.... they actually made the models worse...

    The animations and attack patterns have improved though. And to be honest, Fallout 4 looks way better in motion than it does in screenshots. When you look at a screenshot the blurriness of the textures become startlingly apparent but when I'm in the game, playing, it really doesn't look so bad. This is the first time I even took a look at a charred feral ghoul in a screenshot and I'm genuinely surprised by how awful their textures are. It's kinda like when you pause an anime during a quick sequence of animations.

    But yeah, I don't see how they failed to even live up to the faces of Fallout 3's feral ghouls. I ain't playing on the highest settings though, maybe that's got something to do with it. :shrug: Don't wanna play with choppy fps so fuck if I care, looks good enough in motion to me. Just gotta avoid taking too long to look at things.

    I have seen screenshots of the game running on ultra and they look the same. There are already mods trying to fix them. Not only did they made it into straight up zombies in this games (which was kind of what the original ghouls were subverting to begin with....) but they also half assed the models like a motherfucker. The Bloaed Ghouls literary look like a model edit that just took them about 5 minutes. This game is such a joke...

    I think the current feral ghouls must have been inspired by the original Robocop movie, particularly that scene where one of the bad guys falls into a puddle of radioactive goo and starts to melt.

    I couldn't tell when it came to some animations since the majority of the time they run like super soldiers on fast forward mode. There was that tripping animation when trying to hit you but it looks so stupid. The models lack detail as well, they have this...meatball texture and they have a shitty impersonation of Nosferatu's face, they've degenerated ghouls into nothing more than zombies. Atleast you can shoot their limbs off and watch them sit there with only an arm reminding you of Anakin Skywalker. Eh oh well there's nothing that can be done to fix this garbage.

    Ghouls have literally fallen from organized and relatively powerful or at leas someway important groups to pieces of zombie shit.

    Yeah and they're also doing the whole bigotry towards ghouls again in Fallout 4. Ghouls were kicked out of Diamond City because of course they were and then some of them set up near... The Slog or something? And the leader of the place is all like "ah come on man, we can show them we're just like them, that we're all right. Peace and harmony yo." I haven't been to some other civilized locations like Goodneighbour (which is supposed to have ghouls inside of it) but yeah. Way to rehash Fallout 3, Bethesda.

    I think the ghouls look worse in F4 than F3. Now they just have leathery skin and black eyes. In Fallout 3 and previous games they were truly hideous.

    Yeah they've pretty much prettified the ghouls... Why!? I love that decay! It's why I found ghouls hot in the first place. Now it isn't the same thing... And the one time I got a female ghoul get all flirty with me I couldn't even flirt back!

    I am kind of surprised no one has yet mentioned the Cabot quest here.
    Alien precusors, nonstandard geometry, mysterious artifacts that prolong life, crazy older family members et al.
    Is this kind of cheap pseudo-gothic/lovecraft-ish imagery all the rage now?
    Even for Bethesda, this is just too stupid and gimmicky.

    And Non Feral Ghouls don't even look similar to the feral ones, those just look like lazy retextures, hell the mod that allows you to play as a Ghoul shows that their body textures are extremely low res.

    I think Cabot House was so dumb that it got it's own special thread.

    There's a mod that lets you play as a ghoul? Damn, you'd think they would attempt to fix that stupid pipboy interface. I mean the inventory screen is super tiny but it's okay because when it comes to mods "Yay titties!".

    You are aware that neither the GECK or the Script Extenders are out so the only mods that can be done are simple edits and texture replacements right? Also the game came out 2 months ago, mods take time to make even when the proper tools are out....
