My brother and I will be playing the game, I'm curious about the game partly because it is set in Boston.

I'll check to see if universal hub is in the game

You'll have to tell me if they allow you to play the game inside the subway tunnels or if its all above ground.

I'd *almost* play this just to walk around Boston.

My understanding is there parts of the game that does go underground. Including Park street station, I understand there is also Andrew station, but I'm not sure if that goes underground as well.

You'll have to wait a few months for the Brookline DLC expansion.

Now the young families and young professionals can afford to move in, right?

Are there Smoot marks on the collapsed Harvard Bridge?

Wow, that was a depressing way to start Veteran's Day! Took me right back to my childhood fears.

I really have to wonder if they include the Big Dig or not in this game. I know the world takes an alternate timeline where Scollay Sq survived. But did the West End still get urban renewed? If the Big Dig didn't happen, then the remain is the "other" green monster? Or did the timeline is diverged even further and neither happened.

it got the local character/culture down pretty good.
(history, sports, education, science/technology, ...)

university square feels like harvard square.
the institute feels like m.i.t.

they got somerville wrong (they put it south of the charles near j.p. and its much too rural for being the densest east coast city).
however corvega assembly plant is located near cambridge adjacent to an elevated interstate (assembly row was a gm plant at one point -- though unsure if they made corvettes there).

the putrid green overpass highways remind me of pre-big-dig i-93.
they used the old scollay square combat zone instead of the recent chinatown incarnation.
