Somebody turned off my “ability to give a crap” switch

I have nothing of substance to say today.

I guess that’s not really any different than any other day, but today I’m not masking it by a survey/blathering/stupid YouTube videos.

Sorry. Have to have everything cleaned up and packed by Friday afternoon.
I played Fallout all afternoon.
I have three bobbleheads and have successfully killed about seven Deathclaws, but nothing packed.

Good lord, Fallout 3 is the epitome of awesome. Those of you with an Xbox (or a Steam account or a PC copy of the game) need to play this game. Seriously.

Uh…there was something else I was planning on saying today, but who knows what it was.

Miscellaneous Crap from Across the Internet

God, I love Fallout.

This is the fun you can have with the Sims. It’s fantastic. “What is it with these people constantly trying to molest John McCain?”

This is a triumph. Since I’ll be back in Moscow at the end of finals/for a few days after, I suggest we have a post-semester party in my basement and make these.

Things that rule:

Muse. This video is surreal.

Half-Life. Even when condensed to 60 seconds.

Fallout 3. Because you should have just given him the sweet roll (probably only funny ‘cause I played it, but whatev).


Sorry. Not feeling very well and am also in a gaming mood.

More Fallout 3 Insanity

So I chose this perk called “Black Widow” for my new character. This perk unlocks special dialogue choices with male NPCs. I met up with this rather crazy lady who wanted me to go get her 30 Nuka-Cola Quantums. So I oblige, but before I can leave her wannabe “boyfriend” tells me to quit messing with his girl (does he assume I’m a lesbian?) and gives me the option of getting him the 30 Quantums so that she will “do the horizontal bop” with him. Things obviously aren’t too different in Post-Apocalyptia.
Well anyway, one of my dialogue choices is to tell him that if he gets me some Quantum, I’ll have a threesome with him and his girl. He goes for it, and he happily runs off with his little shotgun to the Nuka-Cola Factory. Within thirty feet he’s crippled by a Radscorpion and dies a few minutes later after he tries to punch a Mr. Gutsy to death. It was hilarious. I tried to get him to stop, but he says, “lemme go, beautiful…I’m gonna go get us some Quantum!
I really enjoy this game. It’s awesome. It’s as if Leibniz were Xbox 360 compatible, that’s how awesome it is.
Ahem. Anyway.

Shall I compare thee to a bed of nails?



Hi people. Today I shall provide you with (gasp!) a list of my favorite games of all time. I’ve been gaming a lot lately, due to the fact that school has yet to begin up here.


I grew up on this game, so it has become part of my soul. This is one of those retro early ‘90s FPSs with no story and horrible (read: awesome) graphics. I was so damn good at this game when I was a kid.

Rock Band/Rock Band II
This game is for crazy people like Sean and myself who take it way too seriously. This game is for all college students who, despite having way too much to study for, are able to somehow play in a fake band for 4 hours straight every Monday-Saturday. In other words, this game is awesome.

Fallout 3
The most recent addition to this list, Fallout 3 is half FPS, half RPG, and it is for those reasons that I love it. It’s also got a lot of humor (threesome offers from soda enthusiasts and love letters from people who want to blow up your city, anyone?) and there are a lot of different ways to “make” your character. Awesome.
Oh, and Button.
Button rocks.

Cosmic Osmo
OH GOD RETRO! Another of those early ‘90s/late ‘80s games, Cosmic Osmo is a Mac (Macintosh, back then, I guess, eh?) game that’s entirely in black and white, which allowed for the world to be HUGE, especially for back in those days. Totally a kid’s game, totally awesome. It’s really hard to find now; apparently eBay copies are selling for like $300. It also can’t be played on Macs nowadays, which blows.

The Sims 1 and 2
The Sims is great. I always made my Sims as replicates of people I knew in real life, then I married people that I thought would go well together, and sometimes I would kill my enemies. Then I got a metric ton of mods and my Sims became orange, giant babies, 500-pound fat guys, skeletons, floating torsos, and were able to have ridiculous amounts of children (FOUR HUNDRED BABIES!). Fun times.

Gordon Freeman is like the Chuck Norris of video games. Alternate univerise alien creatures show up, Gordon’s all, “not in MY research facility, bitches!” Then he whips out his crowbar and weilds it in a way only an MIT graduate could. I wonder how bad his PTSD was after this incident? Like, every time someone mentioned the word “rotors,” did he start spazzing and chucking crowbars at fellow scientists?
That would be a great alternate sequel. “Half-Life 2: Mental Breakdown.”

The Neverhood
So have you ever seen a game made entirely out of clay? Well then you’ve obviously never played this. It’s sort of a puzzle game, in which you play Klayman, a clay dude (durh) who has to somehow get the true king Hoborg’s crown back from the evil Klogg. The music is rad, and the little touches this game has make it awesome.

Gears of War
Because “I ON DA COLE TRAIN!” is the best thing to shout in any situation. And because I like shooters.

“Dude…Mr. Turtle is my FATHER.”

So I finished Fallout 3 today. I must say, it really surpassed my expectations. I thought I’d get bored scavenging through stuff, but I really didn’t. I would strongly recommend this to everyone. It’s technically a FPS, but there’s so much more to it than that, so I hesitate to call it that.

I’m definitely going to play this again. Next run through will be my evil character, than following that I’ll go through as if it were me (which will be interesting—I don’t know if a character with my stats can survive in the Wasteland).


And don’t forget Button! Button owns.

The Best Part of Fallout 3 (so far)

So I was having a really crappy day today so instead of being useful I decided to play Fallout for a few hours.
I was on the “Stealing Independence” quest, which meant that I had to go into the ruined National Archives and retrieve the Declaration of Independence for Abraham Washington (a guy in Rivet City) so he could add it to his history collection.
So after killing about 30 Super Mutants I finally get to this room in which I find a Protectron wearing a powdered wig. This alone had me laughing for like ten minutes:

This robot claims that he is Button Gwinnett, the second signer of the Declaration, and that it is his sworn duty to protect the document with his life, even if that means fighting me to the death. My dialogue options included:

– Killing him (more of an action than a dialogue, but still…)
– Finding some ink to forge a copy of the Declaration, proving that I’m not one of the “red coats”
– “I’m Thomas Jefferson and I’ve returned to liberate the Declaration!”

Luckily, I have a high Speech score so was successful in convincing him that I was good old Thomas (after just sitting there and laughing for another ten minutes). He relinquished access to the document without much trouble and, since I told him he deserved a rest, just sat there while I also took the Magna Carta.

And the last thing he says to me is: “Do give my regards to Sally.”

This freaking made my day.


Oh, and I also have Button’s wig now.
