Here’s the latest and, unless they’re about to do something fruity with full stops, presumed last of the short S.P.E.C.I.A.L. animations which break down Fallout 4 [official site]’s character attributes.

Just in case you’re brand new to all this, the most interesting implication is not a new one. When that random gunslinger arrives near the end to help out, yes, that’s a thing that can happen.

As yet, no Fallout game has tried to explain him to any meaningful degree, and let’s hope that noble tradition holds.
Fallout 4 is out on November 10, lest you didn’t know. That’s, what, three weeks away now? How did that happen?
