I am so done. Fallout 3 is great. Played it all last night with a brief hiatus to watch the Obama infomercial. Points!
Luck 10 is awesome. Add a high agility and small gun score and I'm a head shooting fiend. I don't bother shooting real time at all, mostly because most bad guys drop with 3 to 4 bullets in their cranium. Surprise. :D
Also, I've already found a sniper rifle. I just need to repair it and I don't think I'll ever have to engage bad guys again.
The game is making me want to play a thief, which never happens, because it turned hacking and lock-picking into surprisingly entertaining mini-games. I'm not exactly certain HOW you could survive the game with no weapon abilities which saddens me. I want the all talk, no shoot option.
I own a house and a robot butler too. He tells really bad jokes.
I'm pretty much ignoring the main quest to do the Wasteland Survival Guide quests because maiming yourself for research is AWESOME.
You can actually eat anything you kill. There's even a perk to let you eat humans. :D
Weapon condition is realistic, interesting and INFURIATING. Darn broken weapons.
Low endurance sucks: I'm already addicted to vodka. Well, I guess that is fitting.
Bethesda did a great job matching the humor from the first Fallout to this one. It's silly.
Also, the in-game radio stations are just perfect. Wandering the wasteland with 30's and 40's music is such a wonderful touch. So, yeah. Love it. I have tis afternoon and all day tomorrow off. Guess what I'll be doing? :D
Re: Obama infomercial. Interesting medium, innovative considering previous elections and I good idea all around. However, I am not the intended audience since I'm already decided. but I can see how a refresh of all his policy ideas is really nice. Honestly? i wish John McCain would do something like it because I don't know where he stands on a number of things. I don't think McCain knows either anymore.
Articles: McCain - creating and recreating the man: Discusses McCain's inability to present a consistent image and campaign narrative. Isn't that, like, socialism? - commentary on the hypocritical last line of attacks from the right. Palin '12! - um, oh dear. -- Oh sweet, passed that certification project where the model records we were supposed to use were WRONG. I guess I win for fixing them.
That's 16 application certifications. Hmm.. wonder how many tests and projects total? Roughly 30+ tests and 30+ projects in the last 4 years. Wow.
