We pressed on. There are more NPC. Like, one at a couple of locations. However, they do nothing that the computers didn't do before. They offer no side quests, just loads and loads of dialogue that you have to listen to all of to get your next quest. We were having fun as it goes. Then he fell asleep after his lunch and I decided to play alone for a while. I am level 8. I walked for 30 minutes to get to the next quest only it was full of level 25 ghouls. After dying twenty or so times I just gave up. I don't understand this game. Like, in Fallout 3 (and to some ends 4) the people you have to engage in combat with are usually around the same level as you. As you level up so do they, so it retains that balance. However, numerous times now we have found ourselves up against enemies with four times our level. And it's absolutely impossible, you just chew through what little ammo and stuff that you have and retreat with nothing. I don't know if this is because the worlds are not private, or, if it is just deliberately being a ****. I'm not sure what I am supposed to do to level up 15 times and find the weapons needed to tackle this quest. It's hardly like there are loads of side quests you can grind on long enough to be able to win. So, all I can assume is that the game really was designed from the ground up to be pay to win. Either way I think that could well be the last time I play it.
