Is that what they call the moonshine they brew on the Prydwen's engine deck?
Yeah, but those power armour are bad ass.ID: gq7yodd
You can have power armor without them.ID: gq8i9o3

Answer me this question, Why does the brother hood not want to take over the institute? Its got resource's, tech, food, medicine a fucking working teleporter system and free labor in synths?ID: gq7nz2t
Maxson is extremely paranoid about the technology of the Institute even existing being enough to destroy mankind. Listen to his rant during Blind Betrayal. To him everything from the Institute is a threat to humanity and must be destroyed as soon as possible before it destroys humanity. He doesn’t want it to exist, not even under his control.ID: gq7l6iv
For the same reason that the Railroad and Minutrmen don't and all do the exact same thing with the Institute.
Bethesda ran out of time.ID: gq7zsvm
Pretty much for the same reason the Institute wants to erase any evidence or holdovers from the Old World. Ideology. Also, much like it's West Coast counterpart, the Brotherhood isn't interested in non-military sciences. As for food, with the sheer number of farming settlements that can be set up in the Commonwealth, hydroponics doesn't really matter when the entire area could function as a veritable food basket, especially compared to the Capital Wasteland.ID: gq7lba1
Pretty sure it's the other way around, the Institute has the superior tech, resources and has teleportationID: gq8n54e
Because Bethesda decided that a big explosion looks cooler for a finale.
Mr House dunked on them hard, god the writing for Fallout NV was something.
Woolie will love it when he LP's it
I really liked the Brotherhood we had in 3, I really enjoyed that they where helping out and not just being dumb tech hording isolationists.ID: gq7rusd
Yeah, but they being straight up good guys kinda hurts the overall moral dilemma. If there is nothing bad about them it is a no brainer to help them. They needed something like the NCR to help you realize how incompetent they were in 3 .. or something.ID: gq8ab0m
That's kinda why people dislike then, they're just boring white knights in power armor. The Brotherhood has always been interesting because they're a mixed bag: sure they've got the coolest tech and this warrior-monk aesthetic going on, but they're also a group that is so bound by tradition and distrust that they'd rather hoard their toys in the dark than do anything else. When you switch that up and make the faction with the coolest technology into the ultimate moral good then all nuance is gone and they're just The Good Guys. Nobody in Fallout should be The Good Guys and have the means to act on that moral imperative.
Why is he dressed like leon
Honestly his point of view makes sense from his background. He was literally raised within the BOS, under the harshest circumstances, since according to Fallout canon, DC’s got it worse than nearly every other major hub in the country save for maybe the Pitt. Since the official canon has historically coincided with good karma endings, the only positive interactions he’s had have been with a random vault dweller and a wasteland scientist trying to clean the Potomac. Combine that with the schism within the BOS, he effectively had to compromise his morals to a certain extent to save his family from extinction. Basically imagine the war in Afghanistan, but without any support from congress or the Pentagon, and a literal teenager inheriting the unenviable job of keeping it all together.
Having played it last year, I kinda wish the Brotherhood went more in the direction they were heading in 2. They were so small as to only appear in like 3 spots in the game, and one of those was a joke random encounter, and they had a thing about using their advanced tech and knowledge to help people who had a chance of vastly impacting the wasteland like the Chosen One. It was a really interesting direction, although since they weren’t really out and about I guess they couldn’t do stuff like they do in the rest of the series and that might get old at some point.ID: gq8sgc1
Yeah, from a secret bunker to flying a giant ship over a wasteland. Weird direction.
The brotherhood in FO4 are objectively pieces of shit.
