THINGS:
  • Totally didn't run an extra mile last night. Guess why.
  • My Fallout character can currently snipe better with a pistol than a rifle. (gunslinger perk)
  • YAY ELECTION TOMORROW!
  • Boo bug spraying the apartment today.
  • Boo being unable to get out of bed at 5 for the gym.
  • Yay two extra hours of sleep.
  • Finally found a nice dark par of jeans that fit.
  • Also bought two new shirts with a nifty coupon at Express.

  • (Said shirts have French cuffs, don't tell the Republicrats.)


    I promise I won't ramble more about Fallout 3 or finishing my first 50 miles. For today. lady_fox and I intend another long night of nothing/gaming tonight. I may have to rave about raiding the Washington National Archives.

    I have bought Fallout. I am now engrossed. I'm only level 3, but MY GOD, I could just wander around the Wasteland for hours. I haven't quick traveled anywhere because I don't want to miss anything.

    I have quick traveled mostly because I want to conserve ammo. but, I think I'm going to do some wandering in the near future. My current missions have me infiltrating super mutant nests in DC ruins. Lamesauce. I think it's back to beating up raiders adn finding random quests. So many random quests....

    I'm level 8. Max small guns is crazy especially with the Gunslinger perk which gives you wicked accuracy bonuses.

    I was reading the forums today. People are PISSED that the level cap is 20. Um.. how are they already at level 20? The game has been out less than a week. :/

    these are not avid fallout players. i think all the games end up at level 20.

    I have no idea. Nor do I care. Level twenty seems high enough to me. With my current character build, I get 20 skill points per level. 400 skill points over the life of a character PLUS perk bonuses PLUS bobblehead bonuses? That seems pretty awesome.

    I'll be THRILLED when I can explode heads from 300 yards with a .32 caliber gun. Maybe I'm just LAME though, wanting to wander the wasteland as superman.

    I've been pumping a bunch of points into Small Guns. The perks I've taken so far are 1 level in Quick Learner and 1 level in Gun Nut. I have had some problem with running through ammo pretty quickly, but I've also got a lot of points in Melee, so I've been able to conserve well enough.

    I thought the game topped out at 20 like the rest. Personally, I'm glad that there is a cap and once you're there, there's nothing to do but go, you know, play the game instead of incessantly grinding.

    GRINDING IS MY JOIE DE VIVRE!

    How does melee work for you? I can't imagine playing as a beaty character. I'm slow enough responding to a vicious dog pack in combat using VATS. Can't imagine having my slow-ass reaction time AND needing to get in close.

    I made an egregious error and my save game got biffed, so had to take a day off.

    Note to XBOX players: don't manually save over an auto save. Bork bork bork.

    Ouch.

    What kind of character are you rocking?
    assfingers From: assfingers Date: November 3rd, 2008 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
    small guns/sneak/speech for now, and she is pretty neutral right now.

    When you play a super-good character, people walk up to you and just give you stuff. I've currently raked in 100+ caps and 7 stimpacks from random settlers loving me. :D

    I've got butterflies something awful waiting for the polls to be tallied up.
    abmann From: abmann Date: November 3rd, 2008 03:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
    I'm excited. I see no reason to be pessimistic yet. If Obama doesn't win, people will be very ornery after all the polling data.

    I would be much more at ease if I didn't remember what happened in the last election. Hello, Gore Vs. Bush?
    abmann From: abmann Date: November 3rd, 2008 03:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Gore did not have the same lead in the polls heading into the election though.

    I'll feel better when it's announced and done with. And then only worry about some nut job shooting the man Kennedy style.
    I'm so excited to go back to actually LIKING the president. I haven't been this pleased since Clinton was reelected.

    Fallout has ruined my life now, just as Oblivion did before it. Even my dreams are now looking like a first person shooter. Horrible.
    abmann From: abmann Date: November 3rd, 2008 04:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Totally, dude. I have been dreaming with a 40's music sound track. Also, I'm spending entirely too much time considering what quests to do next while away from the game. Finish the DC raids? Start collecting bobbleheads? Just wander?

    More to the point, WHERE THE SHIT HAVE YOU BEEN?
    From: adamgreeney Date: November 3rd, 2008 04:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
    I got caught up with life. I bought a business, so now i sell swords, knives and all things nerdy and asian for a living.

    Life? What an interesting phenomenon of which I have heard much. I intend to partake at some date when I grow up!

    YAY ELECTION TOMORROW!

    Why didn't you run the extra mile last night? Were there rabid lemurs outside?
