Hearing the front door close I looked at the clock on the wall and shook my head when I saw that it read 1:57 A.M. He couldn’t be serious right now, I know he wasn’t. He’s been ducking and dodging my calls and text messages all damn night then comes walking in this bitch damn near two in the morning like it’s normal? What the fuck?
Narrative begins pre-war. Character customization is so on point. SCULPTING. Todd says NO SLIDERS
have wife/husband. have baby (generated from ur created character whaat). have robot butler. there’s various names pre-installed in the game so if you name ur guy Howard, THEY WILL CALL HIM HOWARD
bombs happen immediately. run to vault. something goes down in the vault. 200 years later, you’re the sole survivor. pretty typical blank-slate backstory.
Environment looks beautiful and incredibly immersive. As with usual Fallout games, there’s a focus on open-world exploration.
FALLOUT: GET A LOAD OF THAT DOG
YOU CAN COMMAND THE DOG TO FETCH THINGS
Pipboy is enhanced! More realistic. Idle animations while fiddling with stats.
new MINIGAMES IN PIPBOY. play games, enhance skillz
LAYERED ARMOUR SYSTEM?? YES PLEASE.
VATS slows down combat, it doesn’t pause it.
BUILDING AND CRAFTING. YES. This seems like such a HUGE element of the game. They’ve really taken player customization to heart.
You can create your own settlement in various set locations. Scrap things in the environment and rebuild new buildings. Deck out EVERYTHING. You can build multi-storeyed buildings, set up generators and hook them to lamps, terminals. Put lights up. Make them different colours. Defend your settlement with turrets.
Fallout: The Sims
Attract settlers to live with you! You can set up farms, merchant stalls (to draw traders), send brahmin caravans to trade between your settlements. You can also make a dog house.
Raiders will attack your settlements so be prepared to defend it.
Junk becomes USEFUL… you can build things. Fallout: Minecraft. Intense weapon customization. Build-your-own laser rifle.
You can also mod your power armour! Not sure if this applies to other armour.
Boys can wear dresses A+
Gameplay on point!! Blow everything up. Call in Vertibird. Shoot things from Vertibird. RAIDER SCUM. GIANT MOSQUITOS.
STEP INTO POWERSUIT
“We knew we had a responsibility to do this game right”
THAT’S THE ATTITUDE WE LIKE, TODD
FALLOUT 4: COMING NOVEMBER 10 2015
Questions– Will there be other companions? Probably. The game didn’t reveal anything narrative/plot wise once you’re out of the vault, so I assume that’s why they didn’t give us anything on the characters.
THEY MADE A REAL WORKING PIP BOY OH MY GOD BEST MONEY GIMMICK EVER. Guess who’s buying the collectors edition whaat uppp
Fallout Shelter!! SO. CUTE. AND IT’S GOING LIVE TONIGHT. A Sims-style, build your own vault app. And it’s FREE. No internet connection needed. You can build things instantly, no typical waiting around. Doesn’t RELY on micro transactions, though there is one (?).
Imagine Sniper had a rebel/punk phase during his junior year. He hanged out with the wrong gang, got into trouble a lot of times, suspended a couple of times during the second and third semesters for vandalizing and drugs. If it was ever brought up, he would try to forget that ever happened. Also, kind of a Sniper/Spy thing where Spy finds out about that and teases Sniper, all like "What a delinquent you were. Such a rebel, heheh."
Meanwhile Spy never disobeyed his parents and dressed like a dork. Spy was a goody-two-shoes.
OH MY GOD.
SNIPERSPY AU WHERE THEY’RE IN HIGH SCHOOL AND SPY’S A CATHOLIC-SCHOOL KINDA KID AND SNIPER’S LIKE A BADBOY. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE.
My store has recently begun giving out gift bags which
include a bookmark, sticker, and color-changing “mood” pencil with
the store logo on them, as well as crayons and some puzzles. Normally, we give
these to younger schoolchildren, or adults who mention having kids at home.
Three young teenage girls come into the store wearing
school lanyards, and at least one of them has a school ID on their lanyard, so
I assume they must be freshmen. They all browse the store, but only one of them
winds up buying anything.
Me: *ringing up the purchase* “And… are y'all too
old for goodie bags?”
Girl 1: “What?”
Me: *sarcastically over-enthusiastic* “Wanna be the
coolest kids in your grade!?”
All three: “Yes!”
I laugh, and hand each of them a goodie bag.
Girl 2: “Oh, my God! We get CRAYONS!?”
Girl 1: “Look! There’s a word search!”
Girl 3: *gasping* “The pencils change color! This is
They leave the store happily, and I continue laughing.
You guys. You. Guys. What an evening! Our first ever live Zombies, Run! event was an absolutely storming success this past Friday, and it’s all thanks to our amazing fans. How do we love you? Oh, let me count the ways.
1) So many of you turned up to see us on Friday night, and in such fantastic costumes! Here’s a group shot of the volunteer Runners Five who came along to help out with the event. How badass do they look? So badass they’d make Sara Smith back down.
2) Seriously so many of you turned up that people were being turned away by the dozen. A reliable source told me that over 500 people attended across all three performances. That’s an entire Abel Township’s worth! (Depending on how many times you’ve upgraded your housing…)
This is a lot of people.
Look how many people. In just one of the performances!
3) ZR Fans look out for one another! When lindleyjo ran into some transportation problems that resulted in her being unable to attend at the last minute, collected-sports-bra stepped up and made sure she got a personal greeting from our very own Phil Nightingale and Jennifer Tan. So lovely!
4) Seriously you guys check out this zombie. This is a terrifying zombie. Zombie: you are zombie-ing correctly.
