After 11 months of playing Skyrim non-stop (no kidding!), and after getting the achievements for completing the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild quests, as well as the pickpocketing achievement, I'd decided to play a new character in New Vegas again, to try Vegas' pickpocketing achievement (again), as well as House's and Caesar's Legion achievements. After so long not playing a Fallout game, I had definately lost some of my touch! It's taking a while to get used to the conversation menus again, and having to repair my stuff after use. And I'd forgotten about that Malcolm Holmes guy and picked up a Blue Star bottlecap, and then he accosts me while I'm running through Scorpion Gulch at level 3 with ten Giant Radscorpions and 8 Bark Scorpions chasing me, and he's gotta rant on about Star bottlecaps. I've got other things on my mind, moron! Like how I'm going to escape when I've only got 4 Stimpaks and 100 bullets to my name.

Why was I in the Scorpion Gulch at such a low level? Its because that with the last few characters I didn't want to go through Quarry Junction and the Deathclaw Road past it to get to New Vegas, and I didn't want to take the surpreme long way around, like you're apparently supposed to, so I cut through Hidden Valley, through some pathways to the Gulch, and then run like hell to get away from the scorpions so I'm on the other side and alot closer to New Vegas. Sound weird to you? Maybe, but that's just me.

This Week's Trivia

I was reading the other day about Gustav III, of Sweden. He believed that coffee was poison, and so to prove his theory, he sentenced a murderer to drink coffee every day, and another murderer was pardoned on the condition if he were to drink tea every day, for comparision to the coffee-drinker. Two doctors were appointed to see if this experiment would work. The doctors were the first to die. Then the king was murdered in 1792. Finally, after many years, one of the murderers died, at the age of 83. He was the tea drinker.

Its interesting to note that back then they didn't know about antioxidants, which is found in tea.

Last Week's Results

Should a future Fallout game include some characters from Fallout 3?

  • Third was only references! What kind? A note? A terminal entry? Someone's personal weapon?
  • Second was Yes! Who should it be? Butch? TUNNEL SNAKES RULE! Okay, they don't rule, but I couldn't help myself. =P
  • And first was that it all depended on how it was implemented. I can't see how they'd bring back Eden. Hopefully they don't.

What if the non-cannon games were made cannon?

  • Third was "Uhh, maybe." What should your initials be? I. Duhknow.
  • Second was Nay! I dunno about you, but Fallout: Tactics rubbed me the wrong way, and I've never even played it!
  • And first was "Which ones?" Maybe if you have a petition, Beth will change thier minds about what cannon and what's not.

Should there be more Legendary creatures in the next game?

  • Third place goes to "Only more lousy creatures." I'd hate to find a Legendary Radroach, wouldn't you?
  • Second was only if they were with new creatures. Imagine a Legendary Slug! It'd be big and slimy and gross!
  • And first is YES! Legendary Deathclaws, here they come! Note to you guys: Bring lots of Stmpaks. You'll need them.
