At last, we can smooch Fallout 4's Nick Valentine


When the moon hits your eye like a shiny chrome pie, that’s amore!

I don’t know about you, but I thought Fallout 4 was a thoroughly disappointing experience. There’re too many problems to list with it, but sat atop that pile is a big, adorable, scrap metal one: I can’t sleep with Nick Valentine.

Despite being a major NPC, Nick can’t be romanced at all. It doesn’t make much sense since you could bang a robot in New Vegas, but that’s the way it is. Or, rather, the way it was, thanks to the magic of modding.

Fallout 4 modder Shadowslasher410 has released a mod that allows you to get down and dirty with Valentine. It includes fully-voiced dialogue trees (which seem to be previously existing dialogue that’d just being reworked into a new context), and characters of any gender can hook up with him.

You can download the mod through Nexus or It’s recommended you start a new game, or at least reload a save where you haven’t already maxed out Nick’s affinity for you.

Now if you excuse me, I have a synth boyfriend to smooch.
