Fallout 3 and 4 were Bethesda-flavored fun, although I’ll acknowledge that Fallout 4 is in the running for “worst game I ever liked.” (its polar opposite is Witcher 3, a game I wanted desperately to love but I just didn’t have any fun at all actually playing in between the story bits.) Most of those 1000-plus hours Read more

I miss freelancing sometimes. I especially missed it when I got called back into the office after working from home for 2 and a half months (for no good reason either, I could EASILY have done my job indefinitely from my home office.)

Back in 1994, my mom paid $80 USD for teenage me’s Christmas-gift copy of Final Fantasy III (VI) on the SNES. Phantasy Star IV, which came out around the same time, was similarly priced. Read more

I look at the AAA space and I’m just like “look. If I want to play a game that’s going to hit me up front AND hit me for DLC down the road, I want the upfront cost to be reasonable and the DLC to be worth paying for.” Read more

We’ll find out when TES6 comes out and I decide whether I want to bother paying full-price or even “first or second Steam sale price” for it. Read more

I am sadly not well-versed in vintage Fallout. You really have to have been there to appreciate those old CRPGs, and I didn’t start PC gaming in earnest until 2004 (and by then Morrowind essentially redefined what a computer RPG should be in terms of player expectations. Those old your-dice-rolls-are-showing Read more

I loved every single thing about that webseries, but HBO-quality it is not.

If we don’t get a “war never changes” over a long establishing shot during the first scene of the first episode, what are they even doing?

The 1100+ hours I have on Steam in Fallout 4, the 1600+ I have in New Vegas, and the nearly 400 I have in 3 (not to mention the 800+ in Skyrim and a whole bunch in Oblivion back in the games-on-disc days) remind me it was a helluva run before Bethesda completely fucked it.

So a post-apocalyptic American Horror Story type of deal? If they’re going to do that, they should do the games out of order and alternate between Black Isle/Obsidian West Coast Fallout and Bethesda Game Studios East Coast Fallout.

I’ve been saying for quite awhile that the ideal medium for video game adaptations isn’t to movies (which infamously suck beyond redemption—almost without exception depending on how you feel about the Milla Jovovich Resident Evil flicks on the sliding scale of just plain bad to so bad it’s awesome.)

At least IL finally legalized recreational so those loony loopholes are no longer relevant.

Same thing was the case in WA before I502 passed.

I’m still not entirely convinced I survived the second one. It is a distinct possibility that I have, in fact, died and gone to hell.
