The new trailer for Fallout 4's upcoming DLC Automatron is available and unveils more from this Pokemon styled Robot collector building pack. It also hints there may be some exclusive story content here as well even if light it would be welcomed. Interested to know whom will be playing this on launch day as I might not be but want to know more about how it plays.

Automatron will be available for download on PC, XBox and PS4 March 22.

Oh damn, that's in a week! That seems sooner than I expected although I'm not sure when I expected to see DLC. That does look cool. I wonder what the most effective weapon would be against them. There certainly seems like a great variety of robots! I might jump in and take a look at it, we'll see. I did order the Season Pass, so it will definitely be mine.

Yeah, me too. Seems like all this content is coming soon.

I thought I ordered the Season Pass, but it doesn't look as though I did.

I can't remember if I decided not to get the Season Pass or if I decided to wait. I just know that later, I thought I got it, but I apparently didn't. So, I missed out on the special price, but I decided to go ahead and get it anyway. I spent a couple of days playing this new DLC and I pretty much finished it. There is still a mission left for me to do, though. I'm not sure if it's a radial mission, but I assume it is. I do like the new companion, Ada. I particularly like her because when Travis and I were in college together, our programming classes were based on that language, Ada. I enjoyed getting components to upgrade her using the new robotic crafting station. Although, I didn't have the required perks to give her many of the upgrades, so I missed out on some. I did change her paint to blue, though she was pretty much already blue. I think her default color was cyan or something else that's bluish.

Travis must be quite busy this semester. I'm surprised that we haven't heard anything from him regarding this new DLC. Oh and I was wondering what would be the most effective weapon against robots. Well, it seems that a shotgun is definitely a really good weapon against them. I seem to recall Travis mentioning something like that in another post.

I picked up the season pass. So far I haven't played any of it. I tried playing Fallout 4 the other day and for whatever reason, didn't continue. I hope I find the drive to finish the game as I really enjoyed up to the point I got.

Last I heard he played it but yeah, i'd expected a full review by now too smile

I am not too high level but the shotguns have been a staple of my gameplay so far. The shells are easy enough to find and they pack a huge punch. I try and pick off smaller guys with the handgun but when things get crazy, out comes the shotgun. Recently(or when I was playing it) I got an automatic shotgun which does a bit less damage but can really rip out the shells.

Yeah, I regret the mistake I made of not getting it when I thought I had it and it was cheaper. I could have saved some money, obviously, but ah well, mistakes a part of life. Haha.

Yet again I'll repeat myself, pretty much, haha. I believe I have suffered from anxiety with this game, which makes playing it a bit frustrating. It easily and quickly overwhelmed me. There are a huge amount of weapons to choose from and tons of ways to modify them. Armor is pretty much the same, although I find it much easier to choose what to use. I pretty much stick with whatever's better than I have. The perk system also overwhelmed me and, like weapons, continues to do so. Now that I can make and modify robots, there are perks I need to get better mods for them. That goes with armor, too. I haven't really messed with weapon mods, though. I did go ahead and get the Armorer perk and I think I have it to level 2 now. Almost all of my S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats are maxed, except for the last two. I'm still level 50-60ish. There's still a lot I can do in the game, which is good because I can get those other perks I need for mods.

Well, like I said (don't you love all this repetition?), he seems to be extremely busy with this semester. However, he'll be done in the next few months, so I'm sure he'll post his input later.

Yeah, I like the shotgun, too, it's a very effective weapon. However, I've used it so much that I've actually run out of ammo and have had to try other weapons.

Makes sense. For me I think it just wasn't clicking with me and I don't continue on if things aren't fun.

I've been buying it from vendors but I use the shotgun VERY sparingly.
