Big Brains Beats Nuclear Ne'r-do-wells in Fallout 4

Featured post

As Alec rightly suggested the other week, the recent run of Fallout 4 [official site] S.P.E.C.I.A.L. skills system videos are little more than pretty-looking regurgitations of what we already know. But I love them.

In just two days Fallout 4 will be just one month away. Let’s mark the occasion with a swatch at the fifth and latest short: Intelligence.

In past post-apocalyptic Fallout excursions, I’ve had a tendency to shy from the action. Instead of charging head-first, gung-ho into confrontation, I’ve much preferred planning my attacks from afar. I’d like to think this is because I’m an intelligent player, but it’s most likely because I’m a shitebag. If you are smart, however, the latest S.P.E.C.I.A.L. trailer is right up your radiation-ravaged street as harnessing a propensity for mixing imagination with science will lead you to great things.

Your medicine, navigation, chemistry and crafting skills all stand to be improved as a result of your burgeoning brain cells in your quest to understand that it’s “survival of the smartest” in the wasteland. “An empty mind is a vessel for knowledge and intelligence is key to unlocking opportunity,” the pseudo-50s faux-public service short tells us. Well, aye, but so too does pegging it the opposite direction of a Death Claw, I’d have to argue.

Survival of the smartest, you say? Quite.

Whether you consider yourself intelligent or not, all you need to know is Fallout 4 is out November 10.
