I'm thinking of a deathclaw companion or even maybe a feral ghoul with some sort of device like helmet making the ghoul co-exist with humans, deleting his reasons for attacking innocent travelers and putting a modest behavior of loyalty. A character like a ghoul or mentioned an android who has been here since the war, and maybe he has information on the origins of what happened during that time.

These are just my wants nothing more!

For me, I think It'd be cool to have an android as a Companion. You may rescue them and they become a companion for you.
Perhaps, it'd be cool if you could somehow build your own android or something and make them fight at your side.

An android would be super cool. Androids are one of the things I'm most excited for in Fallout 4. Ever since that mission in Fallout 3, I've wanted to go and visit The Institute and all their advanced tech.

All chances of having a deathclaw, (or an intelligent one atleast) are unlikely, due to this statement:

'' The Fallout Bible is mixed as to whether Xarn and Goris could reproduce and save the intelligent deathclaw breed. In a March 11, 2002 update, John Deiley (the creator and designer of much of the talking deathclaw content) wrote:

In any case, there is a chance that two intelligent deathclaws survived to continue on the species. I realize that they are both males, but that is fine. When they were engineered by the Enclave, the intelligence gene was made male specific and dominant. What this means is: Any intelligent male that mated with a non-intelligent female would (most likely) produce intelligent offspring.

However, in a later (July 10, 2002) update of the Fallout Bible, Chris Avellone denied that the intelligent deathclaws lived, writing:
BTW, the talking deathclaws were destroyed at the end of Fallout 2. Xarn and Goris did not go on to create a new species. They are gone. Kaput. Icon sic Goodbye. In fact, any mutant animal that talks can safely be assumed to have died at the end at the exact minute that Fallout 2 was over.
Any last words, talking animals?
I thought not.''

I would be hyped up for an android companion, it'd just be an interesting experience if executed right.

Any companion that has strong personality is a good one.

look let's not beat around the bush here, the best reason to get a companion is to increase your carry weight and haul more loot out of raider dens.

so I want a pack brahmin Betsy was supposed to be a companion in New Vegas but was cut due to time restraints so hopefully Fallout 4 will let us have some kind of mule companion to use.

Hell maybe we can get something badass like a pack Yao Guai.  

lol!

An Android with a very high carry capacity. Need them to hold all my loot. Must be willing to wear power armor and like fancy things....

ANDROID DEATHCLAW!?

Wouldn't mind a Enclave Remnant or another uncommon companion like a Radscorpian (Giant) or something around there. I get tired of the same ole' humans, and what not.

Even though this has been done in past fallout games i would say either a super mutant or a paladin of the BoF. Think about it Fawkes in fallout 3 was a best and no one could even hurt you, plus he had a very decent carry weight. The paladin is the same way, a person supped up in power armor with a giant gun of some sorts.

But from what I've read on here alot of you guys have many great ideas.

I'm really hoping for a strong silent type like Charon. He's such a badass. He can deal out so much damage while being calm and collected. But although, it'd be better if he was a little more... personal able, not like a statue. Other than that I hope there is a goal companion! Waving Smiley

A Clone of Theodore Roosevelt. For reasons. I honestly think he would be a Badass and the next leader of the Enclave.

Personally, I believe a sequels should explore new atmospheres, personalties, and character types.
So it'd make sense for me not to like a clone of Boone.

I think it's highly likely that an android companion is already in the game and I hope it brings a story that wrestles with ideas of transhumanism, artificial intelligence, and ghost in the machine type themes - bringing in questions of ethics, evolution, nature, etc... (think Deus Ex)
Something like that would be awesome.

I'd also love to see some kind of punk or redneck character... a simpleton or something.

Well, I would want something out of the norm. Preferably a companion who isn't exactly trained in combat or just coming along for the ride.
It would be nice to see a companion like Ellie from The Last of Us, Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite, or Clementine from the first Telltale's The Walking Dead in Fallout 4. Players have to take up a bodyguard role, meaning players will be the "Fighter" type of the duo, while the other one is the "Support."

I don't know, I would like that in Fallout 4.

Honestly, none. No companions. They just get in the way. They're only useful as bullet sponges and pack mules...beyond that, I'd rather not be bothered with them at all. At least, that's how I feel about all the followers/companions in the previous Fallout games, in their un-modded form.

If Bethesda makes Fallout 4's companions behavior adjustable to your play style in it's initial release, as in an AI preset for stealth, commando and chicken-sh!t, then I'd say whatever the game throws at you. I'm not particular so long as the companions have some kind of separate story line to explore that has nothing to do with the main quest. The more side quests, the better.

Sometimes I feel like the only one who plays without a companion. Anyway, I agree with your statement. Usually when I'm trying to do an important quest, I'll have ED-E blocking the damn door or getting me shot for no good reason. Sometimes they venture off and do their own thing and ruin the lonely feel of the game. One of the reason's I play fallout is for the desolation, because the feeling of loneliness and having the whole world against you for survival makes the game feel more authentic.

^ I agree with you 100% tehuitzaldebamf! It was worse in FO3...you're the Lone Wanderer for Pete's sake! I've only ever used Willow as a companion for FNV, and she got on my nerves after a while...it's a great mod, don't get me wrong. I just kind of like being an army of one. Plus, I've always added my own custom .esp files that up the weapon damage for all the guns and melee weapons...so a single bullet or two will kill you deader than Caesar's Ghost...and a numpty follower skipping along, singing oldies and drawing the attention of nearly every armed maniac in the wasteland is a 'very bad thing' Smile I just didn't have the heart to tell her to shut up, so I just removed the mod instead!

Okay...thread derailment over, back on topic!

Springboarding from what we know about Boston so far, I'd like to see a set of companions that come down to a choice. We know that there are renegade androids and bounty hunters; I think having a turning point quest where we get one or the other based on what "side" we choose during the quest line.

I'd like to have a android that has ran away from the Commonwealth much like Harkness in Fallout 3. And you could go around and possibly find upgrades for his systems and such.
