The good: Fallout 4.
The bad: There’s no official release date yet, but once it’s announced, it’ll mean that I’ll have to get a new PC (desktop, not laptop). Which is good in and of itself, but it’s also expensive.

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.

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.

“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.
