I am so disappointed in this game. I expected something like Fallout 3 but perhaps more lighthearted. But this game is a joke. The quests are the simplest, stupidest quests I've seen in a very long time and the backstory is almost invisible. And the gameplay mechanics are so simple. I have finished the Firestone missions but I simply find no motivation to continue.

So far I'm loving the game. Gameplay is great and I'm loving the humor.
