Fallout 3 (Continued)

So I bought the Fallout 3 collector's edition (comes with a bobble head, lunch box, concept art, and a "making of" DVD, as well as the game of course).

So far the game has been awesome, it's really fun. It's not scary, especially with the V.A.T.S. system (pausing time to make super awesome shots/moves), but I'm really having a hard time scavenging ammunition. Some people would mistake that as a bad thing, but it's not, it's CHALLENGING and AWESOME. I took down a super mutant that had a CHAIN GUN with my spiked knuckler....I'm not even a melee fighter character, I'm just that desperate.

Graphics are awesome, sounds are great, voice overs are excellent, combat is really fun, and the game managed to capture a lot of the classic Fallout feel. It's really quite cool, and it better be for the $75 I spent for it.

Only downside: I'm having some crashes and lock ups with it, but I'm sure they'll get those patched up soon. It just released today, I'm not THAT picky.

Fallout 3

I've actually been playing Fallout 2 in preparation for this game, and honestly it's pretty good. It takes a while to get used to the move based combat, but it's understandable. I can't wait to play a first person shooter in the Fallout world though, that'll be entertaining. In case you haven't been following, Fallout is a series based in a dystopian future where the world has largely been destroyed by nukes. There's a lot more to it, but that's the summary. It has been 10 years since the release of Fallout 2 (so 2 was a pretty basic game by modern graphical standards), and tons of people (myself included) can't wait to play 3.

Yay for pointless blog posts about video games. Let's face it, you read this far (or skipped to here, punk), so clearly it's pretty interesting to you. That, or you're bored. If you're bored, go punch a tree.

I wonder what I'm going to eat for lunch with Tony...subway is kind of expensive, but I'm hoping to work a little extra this week anyways. S'all good.

Random song from Seeqpod, don't blame me. *runs off to college*

SeeqPod - Playable Search

So I'm at college right now waiting for this computer class to start, and just a little while ago I was trying to get a soda from a soda machine, and I put a bunch of quarters in and it started giving them back. I thought it was messed up, so I stepped aside and let the next people that were trying to get pops try their luck. A couple people tried either coins or dollars but it never worked. Once every else had given up and left for class I thought for a minute and hit the "return coins" button, only to realize that I had already put enough money in to get my soda.

I accidentally stopped all those people from getting soda because the machine already had enough money to pick a flavor :P

Anyways, that was random, I know. Pepsi rocks *sip*.
