I didn’t realize I hated my Xbox One until I loaded Fallout 3 on it and felt all warm and fuzzy when I saw the Xbox 360 logo and heard the Xbox 360 theme.

Hey, you. Gal or guy who’s interested in video games but still doesn’t have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One (or, of course, the PC equivalent). Now is the time to buy one.

Let’s say you own an Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and you’re looking at getting Fallout 4. How does the game shape up on each platform? »
The character creation system in Fallout 4 sure is robust. There are seemingly endless options. But there’s one thing it’s especially good at: making unsightly characters. »
I’m 20 hours into Fallout 4, and I still don’t know whether I like it. That’s a testament to the game’s virtues as well as the game’s failings. I have no plans to stop playing.
