We’ve been playing Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4 since its release on November 10th (you can follow our playthrough diary at our sister site, DepressedPress.com). We celebrated its new, more aggressive ghouls a few days later on November 15th. But what about the many interesting ghouls that don’t want to immediately chew your face off? This series is for them!
[Minor spoilers below!]
Kent is the key to our absolute favorite quest line in Fallout 4: The Silver Shroud! An eternal fan of the comic book hero, Kent spends his time in the Memory Den reliving old episodes of the ancient radio show. He’s so damn adorable! When he begs you to explore the local comics shop/TV studio and find memorabilia for him, you just gotta, right?
When you return with the costume (and the gun and some other goodies) he’s just so damn happy! The black trench coat and fedora. The pretty silver (but pretty damn useless) submachine gun. When he suggests that you wear that costume and go after bad guys – optionally delivering all of your dialog in the voice of the Shroud – you just gotta, right?
When the criminals get upset because you’re talking like a comic book character while shooting them in the face and kidnap him, he’s just so damn sad! With the torture and the pain and yelling. When you hear about it and get the option to run all the way to Medford and rescue him, you just gotta, right?
Kent’s great. We love Kent!
