They are the same person; the friend’s name is randomly generated from a list of 6 names per gender, just like his/her baby. Their gender is always yours, and the baby’s gender is always that of your child.
On that note, figured out the issue with the kid having no name. Will be fixed forthwith.
@Eric_Moser Choosing how you want to introduce video games will indeed be in there. As well as being an event I will likely face soon in my own real-life playthrough. As for Fortnite, fie on it. Never played, but it sure sounds like PUBG would be more up my alley. Crafting is just not my cup of tea. I don’t want to build the axe, I just want to hit someone with it.
@Carlos.R I loved that part; Fallout 3 is in many ways inferior to New Vegas. But the intro is not one of them. It has one of my favorite first hours of any game I can recall.
@derekmetaltron I think the difference at kid age will be minimal. I thought about limiting sport/activity options by gender, but realistically some boys do dance or gymnastics, and some girls do football or basketball.
As teenagers the differences will be more pronounced. If not entirely unique scenes, at least wildly different versions based on gender.
