    Green Man Gaming is currently having an exclusive voucher for 23% off all items in their store which happens to include Fallout 4 and the season pass. This voucher expires on 10/09/15 so if you're interested you might want to take advantage of it quick. Also keep in mind that this is only for a code you can redeem through Steam so those with an Xbone or PS4 need to look elsewhere.

    Just apply it when checking out. If you you're not familiar with the site and think it might be a bit sketchy, don't use it. I've used them before but you never know.

    Mainly, this is just a way for me to keep track of ideas for a fan-fiction I recently started on and to make it easier for people to get the gist of what I'm trying to write when I ask for creative input. As I said, this is more of a conceptual stage and is more than likely subject to change.

    Basic Setting:

    -Currently takes place 5 years after the second battle of Hoover Damn (2287).

    -Courier went for the independent NV, Yes-Man and such. Sided neither with the NCR or Legion though was diplomatic in his dealings with them. Simply a background character really and is only mentioned.

    -Legion and NCR suffered major losses, Legion more-so than NCR. By 2287, both are in decline.

    Well after getting up at 5:00 am and waiting another hour for it to download, I was able to thoroughly play Old World Blues. When I finished, I definitely thought it was worth the wait.
