Wot I Think: Fallout 4 – Wasteland Workshop

Wasteland Workshop is the second serving of Fallout 4 [official site] DLC that offers players new settlement items, crafting options, and the chance to capture wild creatures before pitting them against one another in purpose-built arenas. Beyond that, there’s not much else to it, no quests, no story, which is a fact reflected by its modest £3.99/$4.99 price tag. But is it worth your time? Here’s Wot I Think.

They’re Coming Outta The Goddamn Balls!

Before my parents abandoned hope of me not growing up a degenerate and allowed me to watch murdermovies, I was fascinated by the local swimming pool’s Aliens arcade cabinet and Terminator 2 pinball table – Cool Things I couldn’t have. Ooh, the hours I spent watching bigger kids play or waggling the joystick as demo as I pretended to play the demo! This… isn’t quite going where I wanted to. Let’s skip ahead to the bit where I explain that an Aliens table is coming to Pinball FX2 this month as DLC. Also coming are an Alien vs. Predator table (boo!) and an Alien: Isolation one too (ooh!).

Fallout 4’s Wasteland Workshop DLC Due Next Tuesday

The second round of Fallout 4 [official site] DLC will arrive next Tuesday, April 12th, Bethesda have announced. Like Automatron before it, the Wasteland Workshop DLC adds more bits and pieces to the current world rather than going somewhere new (that’s being saved for the third pack). The Workshop will give survivors new things to build in their settlements, from decontamination showers to taxidermied monsterheads, and also trap creatures for gladiatorial combat (or any other nefarious ends which spring to mind). Here, have a peek:

Train Valley DLC Visiting Germany With Bombings, Wall

RAF always after my trains :(

Do you know of Miniatur Wunderland? It’s the world’s largest model railway, with around a thousand trains, thirteen thousand metres of track, and two hundred thousand people across more than a square kilometre with diddy versions of everything from its home town – Hamburg, Germany – to Las Vegas. There are cars, crowds, farms, festivals, boats, ships, planes, a space shuttle, fire engines which go out and fight fires, and a drowned body in a river being investigated by a forensics team. It sounds pretty amazing, in short, and I’d very much like to visit one day.

So no, I’m not at all surprised that the first DLC for fun rail management game Train Valley [official site] is focused on Germany. They flipping love trains.

Built-A-Bot Workshop: Fallout 4’s Automatron DLC Out

Automatron, the first DLC release for Fallout 4 [official site], came out today. It’ll let wasteland survivors create and customise their own murderbots, all wrapped up in a new quest line. You want a buddy who’ll leap at folks with dual stabby road drill arms or a big wheelybuddy bristling with guns? Get in, my son.

Plain old Fallout 4 is on sale to celebrate the launch too, with a 33% discount.

Greedo, Jabba’s Palace & A New Mode For Battlefront

I haven’t been back to Star Wars Battlefront [official site] since release, which is partly because it left me a little cold after I’d grown accustomed to the lovely, dad-pleasing graphics and partly because the nostalgia bubble I’d spent a couple of months in burst after finally seeing The Force Awakens. (It was Quite Good But). If they ever introduce a playable Jawa mode, I will be back faster than Han Solo telling porkies about the Kessel Run. Utini, babies. This seems sadly unlikely; for now, EA/DICE seem focused on more maps and, though beloved, C-list characters that no-one in their right mind would call Heroes.

XCOM 2 Anarchy’s Children DLC Out Today

Happy Saint Paddy’s Day one and all! A day for dressing up in garish green hats, novelty glasses, and orange wigs. Which is what I assume we’ll be able to do in the latest XCOM 2 [official site] expansion, Anarchy’s Children, which promises “100 new exotic customization options for your soldiers, including new hair styles, face paints, armor, lower face props, decals, helmets, masks and more.” I guess we’ll find out either way when it launches later today. Top o’ the mornin’ to ya, Advent soldiers.
