I played for about an hour before dinner this evening. I made it across the bridge. In fairness, it's a long bridge, there was a lot of ghouls and I'd just found a Chinese officer's sword.
Kudos to technology for having graphics that are so good they trigger my fear of heights, or maybe it was because I was afraid of respawning back on the other side of the bridge.
I raised my perception up to 4 and put my other perks in hacking and lockpicking.
For whatever reason the Deathclaw in Concord wiped the streets with me (literally). Garvey didn't do s$#~ from his balcony (seriously, laser muskets are the most useless weapon in the history of video games) I had to rely on raiders to soak up some damage and actually hit it with their guns.
I think when I start up again (I gots to shave) I'm going to see what happens when I shoot Garvey in the f*%&ing face.

Can you launch a mininuke far enough to annihilate a charging horde of super mutants without also annihilating yourself?
I'm going with a high strength and charisma, low intelligence character named Rocko, it's actually going a lot better than I thought it would, as I can talk my way out of pretty much every situation.
I'm super disappointed at how little the lady killer perk comes up in dialogue.
Here i was, planning to double entendre my way across the Commonwealth, and so far, zilch!
Then he decides to follow us to Billy's house and wants to buy the whole f++$ing family! What part of "I'm not a piece of s+**" don't you understand? Is it the part with the missiles, or the part where I rip your spine out with my Lovecraft dagger? Cause, either one of those don't seem worth trafficking in ghouls.
At any rate, Bullet is dead, on account of the missiles, his little gang of gunners are scattered in pieces across a large swath of swampland and little Billy and his family are safe, for now.
So, I'm on this rooftop and I notice a group of rust devils trying to get the drop on me, of course they weren't being subtle so I took them out. Then when I jump down to loot the debris and body parts some kid yells at me to let him out, and then wants me walk him home, which is fortunate because I hadn't rampaged in that direction yet, and the rust devil sentry had ten extra missiles! Yay! Gunner ruins!! Now I know where I can put those extra missiles! Now some guy named Bullet, or Eddie or whatever wants to buy Billy off of me, not gonna happen there dickwad!

Okay... So, as you know, I wiped out the raiders, well I found the power plant and I remembered how turning the power back on would be the beezneez! So I climb to the top, killing ghouls as I went and successfully turned the power on, unfortunately it took me all night to get up there so when the fireworks went off it was kind of lost in the daylight.
Anyway, as you can imagine I had a s*+$ load of loot to pawn, so I went to the Nuka World Market and what should I find. The traders successfully shed their collars! Yay! And they stripped down to their underwear!... What?!... Yup, all the traders are now going without clothing.
I... I don't understand it, but I applaud their newfound sense of freedom!
I had decided to let the raiders settle Nuka World, I even planted their flags. Then Gage started going off on pillaging the settlements in the Commonwealth, and I'm like "Dude, I started those settlements!".
Now my power armor is trashed and I'm all out of mininukes, missiles, grenades, mines, and shotgun shells.
But there's no more raiders and I still have Kremvh's Tooth! Precious, precious Kremvh's Tooth...
I'm currently level 37-39 and have focused on modifying weapons and armor, with my weapon focus being heavy weapons, and guns, all the guns, except lasers.
I usually hang with ADA, mostly because she can carry so much junk.
I also finally took the time to meet the other gang leaders, I wasn't impressed, I think eventually murdering them all is the way to go. I'm definitely not letting them move in with Timmy and his gorilla family.
So, l met this doctor in the Nuka World market (which I just found) and she was all "If you take down the leaders of the various gangs the rest will run away.
So I took out Mags and her dick brother but then ALL the raiders tried killing me.
That b#@$~ set me up!
This is something that I'm going to need a lot of ammo for.
Goes looking for a previous save.
Took care of Red River Gulch, or whatever it's called, with all the bloodworms (they should call them yawnworms because with a VATS enhanced super mega shotgun that's what they were, boring).
Rather then fetch a bunch of s*~@ for a bunch of redneck robots I just destroyed them all (except the sheriff, though I did try a few times) and took their combination.
Now I'm helping Toto and his parents reclaim Safari Adventures, but not before stocking up on some more missiles, I have a feeling 23 just won't be enough.
So, I walk to Oberland Station, on account of Preston saying they're having a ghoul problem.
The lady there is all like "yeah, those f~!~ers keep wandering in but I know where they live" "where's that?" "Hubris Comics".
So I look on the map and lo and behold, Hubris Comics is like 6 miles away through at least 3 combat zones. And you're telling me they're just wandering over here, to harass you.
Found the rifle in a clinic crawling with blood bugs and bloatflies, which are both easy peasy.
On my way north I found Sunshine Tidings Co-op which Preston was super keen on getting settled. So I cleaned out the few ghouls and radroaches squatting there, set up a turret, generator and a few water pumps and planted some corn before setting up the beacon.
Either Preston Garvey knew he was in way over his head, or I said all the right things when he told me his backstory, but either way he made me general of the minutemen (shouldn't it be minutepeople?) and I can choose Preston as a companion.
I'll try not to lead them to their deaths.
Or at least lead them to some seriously epic deaths.
I'm a pretty tough a#&*~#$, but even I cut and ran from the old power plant swarming with super mutants packing serious heat, but yet this one brotherhood bastard not only made it through, but was able to hole themselves in at the top before succumbing to their wounds. All without their power armor!
Pours a forty on the curb.
Real heroes don't wear power armor.
Or maybe they should.
