    Anyone in chat over the past couple days has probably seen me post about this. It's done. :)

    Normally Im quite critical of DLC, I hate what the PC video game industry has become. Its a cesspool of microtransactions, worthless season passes and early access games that never get released. However, I think the way Bethesda is handling this is okay. I'm not thrilled they jacked up the price of the season pass by 20$, but they always seem to put out pretty good DLC. I loved everything in FO3, Skyrim, and FO:NV (technically not Bethesda, but same universe). They've also released a number of free updates now, we're already on version 1.4.

    I'll continue to trust some companies like Bethesda and From because their DLC is always spot on. From Mournhold to Dawnguard, Bethesda's been on point. (So long as you look past that horse armor haha.)

    Bethesda has generally been really good with DLC, I agree. While horse armor might have been a weird move, Oblivion also had Shivering Isles which was a damned good DLC/Expansion. Knights of the Nine was also pretty cool, albeit not quite as nice as Shivering Isles. All of their Morrowind and Fallout content was great too. I have high hopes for even the smaller DLC's coming out from them.

    I like to think of Bethesda as the TOOL of game developers. They generally pretty quiet about things. They don't constantly put stuff out there other devs do. They like to take their time with it. So when they do finally release their new game, it ends up being worth the wait.... just like TOOL :)

    Came here to post that haha.

    It looks much more involved than I thought it was gonna be. I'm so pumped for another Bethesda DLC cycle.

    Tuesday afternoon for Sony NA due to their store update schedule. It's 100% not Bethesda in this case.

    The DLC is neat. Somehow my mods didnt break it, so thats cool. The quest is pretty short but fun. The level of robot customization is insane. Now that Codsworth is a hulking behemoth death machine, I actually have a reason to use him.

    I just started playing the DLC (haven't even finished the main questline, I got bored of RPGs for a while and have dedicated most of my gaming time to NBA2k16).

    I've found that for me,
    Ada is a useless piece of ....
    . Being able to modify robot companions is going to be sick, though.

    I had to force start the quest because it didn't trigger on the one save file I wanted to use. Only played a tiny bit, and watched the wife play a bit more. Gotta say, for a rinky dink little $10 DLC, it seems really well put together. I feel its worth the money at this point.

    My codsworth is a fvckin baller. And by that I mean he's literally a ball on tank treads and my wife and I giggled at him uncontrolably.

    Quite an enjoyable DLC though I do wish it was longer. Story line was way too short for me.
