If you were anywhere close to Texas I'd offer to fix your PS3.  I had enough experience taking apart 3 of mine as well as several customers, with moderate success.

Be very careful sinking a ton of money into a new console right now, as it's likely both Microsoft and Sony will be announcing their new consoles this year (though neither are likely to come out soon, Microsoft's will probably be first).

How much longer do you think they'll be supported?

Pretty much any good game you can get on xbox is also on PC. I don't think there's really any good reason to get one.

PS4, on the other hand, has so many good exclusives...

If you have PS3 games you don't want, however, I know someone (me) who'd maybe take them off your hands. :D

Also, what exclusives does the PS4 have that the Xbox doesn't?

So Fallout 4 sucks. It's boring for starters. Then, the Brotherhood of Steel quests broke, and then I accidentally shot a Diamond City guard, so the entire town is hostile to me, which means I can't complete the main quest either. Meh.

Fell down the Path of Exile rabbit hole. I've nothing to say about this game that those of you have played it didn't know already.

Every day its the same question.

HOW CAN YOU DO THIS BETTER THAN BLIZZARD DID WITH THEIR OWN IP? HOW?!?!
FOR FREE!
Yes I'll buy more stash spaces, I need them for all the worthwhile shit this game drops.

I enjoyed the game but the story bugged me.

I also wish ARPGs would get out of the, you need to complete the game three times in order to get to end game.  That is one thing that Blizzard finally got right.

I'm enjoying the story, it's delivery and scope puts me in mind of the Malazan BotF books. It certainly doesn't dumb things down with its exposition and there is an impressive amount of lore material in game which provides necessary context. I also appreciate that the main story is much longer than that of D3, rather than being relatively short and then essentially just the same content over and over.

I've not yet completed the main story but, at level 62, I'm not getting a sense I'll need to repeat the same content over and over to get to the end game. So its leaps ahead of Blizzard in that regard so far.

I think it is the complexity of builds and itemisation harkening back to D2 which does it for me. Having to worry about resistances again, rather than just what my set-build +legendary optimisation will be, is refreshing. I don't necessarily think it is "better" than D3s approach post ROS in that regard, just different.

I refuse to give the time of day to any ARPG in 2019 that still believes class should be gender based.

FO4 didnt grab like previous installments did, though I still enjoy it immensely. That said, I often prefer to make my own fun in sandbox games, rarely do I finish the main quest.

BOS quests are definitely buggy, need to use the Unoffical Patch mod to fix the quest (and many other bugs).

As for the NPC hostility, if you sleep 24 (or 48?) hours in a different cell (like Sanctuary home or whatever you use), they should reset to neutral.

Yes, time for that system to go. Bothered me way back when I played D2, glad they fixed it in D3. Some developers still haven't caught on though.
