    Yeah probably because this isn't reddit and people who post here make valid points and reference facts and evidence to prove their point rather than drooling on their tablets to form sentences.

    (Let's see if I can try and get this thread back on track) 38: T-51b power now needs power cores that run out after like 5 minutes, even though lore in previous games specifically states it's power source can last for hundreds of years

    Collateral damage is fine.
    Premeditated murder is wrong.

    All I ever wanted to be is a single female lawyer who puts bullets into the bad people. Todd knows my deepest desires. Single female lawyer for life....

    43: The female Sole Survivor, despite being a god damn lawyer can somehow hop right into power armor despite having no training…so does this mean power armor requiring training is retconed too?

    That she went to law school is pretty much all you know about her. People go to law school for all sorts of reasons. Some were activists, some are asshole cops. Most make a lot of money idk defending Nabisco injecting liquified Premium Plus crackers into the eyeballs of rabbits. She really could have been anyone.

    Sorry, just the whole "dude who's actually a combat vet who could have literally any psych history could actually handle the wastes" vs woman with some law school thing kindof irks me. Better arguments for where this game makes copious non-sense are here.

    The best part of it is: this even be a fucking issue if Beth wasn't so intent on shoving a damn backstory down our throat!

    What backstory? You have a kid, and are related to a whole race of synthetic people now. Ok, compulsory heterosexuality maybe, but that fits the being immersed in extended 50s nuclear family mentality thing as does pretty much everything else making you pretty much an insipid nobody where anything could fit. Is being locked in a Vault in other games not specifically confining enough a backstory for you?

    We're talking about character creation, and how it limits making sense of a story that makes no sense. I actually don't find it as confining in that regard. The game would make the same amount of sense if you had been their lost cat.
