Seriously? You made a pipboy that...

  • Does not include the game
  • Does not interface with the game
  • Remember - your Pip-Boy is not a toy.

 

How does it NOT interface with the game? 

No shit it's not a toy. It's a heavy, shoddily crafted, ill fitting apple watch.

 

Scratch that. It IS a toy.

This to me looks like a case

This to me looks like a case of looking for something to be angry about when there's not much reason to be angry about.

Seriously, guys? This is really stretching it. There's been plenty of other previous Fallout Merchandise (yes, before Fallout 4 too, shockingly) that didn't interface with the game. Why get angry about this of all things?

Because my cell phone does interface with the game? They went through all that trouble to make that neat little toy but didn't make it interface with the game. With everything they stuffed into that thing it doesn't seem like it would've been hard to also stuff a version of the cell app in there.

And who said anyone was angry? I'm more disappointed.

Coming from the guy who seems slightly angry in the DLC thread, Kind of funny.

I'm not angry that they're

I'm not angry that they're releasing it.  I'm angry that it won't sync to the game.

 

If it did that then I'd probably be dumb enough to buy it.

I just bought a couple of

I just bought a couple of 'Sugar Bombs' cereal bowls and unless I throw them at the screen I'm sure they won't be interfacing with the game

True. Though the ways in

True. Though the ways in which a cereal bowl interfaces with things and the ways in which existing versions of the Pipboy already allow in game interface do vary slightly.

You're right. On second

You're right. On second thought, that pipboy should have been included with the pipboy app. Maybe that's what you were originally getting at. I'm sure someone could mod that pipboy cellphone bluetooth toy thing to actually use the actual pipboy app for smart phones. There has to be a way.
