The thing I wanted to focus on however was not that piece of incompetence but the one that apparently lead the supermutant army to wipe out pretty much every bit of the wasteland besides the brotherhood and junktown.
My ending cinematic was filled with short clips stating that Shady Sands or the Hub essentially got wiped out by the supermutant army. Which bugs the crap out of me cause when I was traveling I saw the random stranger who gives directions and he stated these places were overrun. So I prom ply dashed to Shady sands and discovered.... nothing. The town was fine.
So my question is did I screw up something? I blew up the military base and had the Master blow himself up. Did my game glitch? (annoying but eh) Was I a noob for finishing at lvl 12 and not finding more sidequests?
Such questions haunt me and I hope the illustrious champions of these forums can answer me (or in other words thanks for any answers)
