Also IMO the laser musket is the best sniper in the game.

No it isn't.

Well that's just excessive...

I finally found myself a Gauss Gun. Sure, it doesn't do anywhere near as much damage as the gun + perks combo in that vid, but it makes heads go SPLAT! very nicely. 

The game's suffering from the same old Bethesda levelling qualm, I agree... I'm level 40 now, and although I've boosted the difficulty from Hard to Very Hard around level 15 or so, I'm still breezing through it. The bugged McCready companion perk doesn't help: it's supposed to give you a very lovely accuracy bonus to headshots in V.A.T.S., but the bug gives pretty much all headshots a 95% success chance - even when the chance to hit any other part of the enemy's body is 0.

I'm considering going to Survival mode, I don't really like what that does. Sure, let enemies hit me harder, but don't turn them into bullet sponges that you have to grind away at. Sure, make ammo more rare - but not by making sure enemies take hundreds of bullets to die. That seems unimaginative, especially after the interesting ideas Obsidian implemented for the New Vegas survival mode.

I'm stuck in the OCD loop of helping the settlements with their stupid raiders and ghouls.  Have to start ignoring that shit and finish the game.

Yeah, I'm a little annoyed that these things keep popping up.  On the other hand, I had to expand my Power Armor repository when I got up to 13 of them.  Basically, all I did when I played the game over my Xmas break was go on Power Armor hunts. 

My son and I almost finished Gauntlet: Slayer Edition, but that last boss battle is rough.

I started Fallout 4 awhile ago but never finished and had my laptop stolen. Started again a few months ago on a luck/agility ninja build but got distracted. The news about fallout 76 got me excited so have been playing again and enjoying it. I think I'm going stick with the minutemen faction for my first time till completion then if I want to do a second go of it try anther one. I probably won't get 76 when it comes out right way so will have some time with it. Is there any advantage of faction, minutemen seem like the most straight forward.

The factions don't matter all that much in the long run, it's just the quest selection and some cosmetic options. You can also kinda mix and match the minutemen with some other factions.

Really miss the factions system from New Vegas

I really miss a lot of things from the actual Fallout games (1, 2 and New Vegas).

I really want to like Fallout 4, because it really does have good elements. The base building can be fun (though the available sites are kinda shite), the general feel of it is generally captivating, but the quests are shite, the world is just empty and lifeless under the very thin surface, and none of the stories that are being told are captivating in any way. The radical dumbing down of RPG elements did not help at all.

I know it probably won't be great, but I am hoping for the Fallout: Cascadia mod to work out well:

There's Also a total conversion mod headed our way for New Vegas. I'll dig up the name later tonight.
