A few weeks ago (well, more like 30), I decided to try my hand at fan-fiction. The best part about writing your own stories based on...whatever...is that you can borrow from the game/TV show/book etc. without being bound to the "rules" that the producers, game developers put down. You can do almost anything, which I like, because some of hte options that Bethesda gives you I don't care for, so I can "skirt around" these issues without them damaging my story. If you're interested in reading this work in progress (I post a new chapter each Sunday), see the most recent one here. If you like, there's a list of previous chapters to read on each page.
This Week's Trivia
America's first newspaper was called "Publick Occurrences, Both Foreign and Domestick." No that's not mispelled; that's how they spelled alot of things back in 1690. It was a folded three panel sheet of paper (sort of like the maps you get a hotels), and was printed in Boston on September 25th by two men named Benjamin Harris and Richard Pierce. However, the British didn't want "unlicensed" publications, so closed it down after its first and only issue. In an odd twist, we don't even have our first newspaper here in the US. Its over in London in the Public Records Office.
I don't know about you, but I think they should give it back. It is our newspaper, after all.
Last Week's Polls
How do you like snow?
- Third was comment! I feel better about making comments about ...Comment than I did about Other and Comment Below.
- Second was no snow! Me too!
- And first was fluffy! More fun than hard and crunchy or icy and slippery.
If Fallout took to the open sea would you wish to be...?(from SaintPain)
- Third was a pirate or sea raider. "Kick ass!"
- Second was ye olde Vault Experiment. I don't know about you, but I get a sick feeling if I look down for too long in a moving vehicle. I can't imagine being in a boat that rocks and rolls and bobs constantly.
- And first was the NCR navy. Being that they started in a state with a large coast, wouldn't they have one already?
Being as Bethesda has released a remastered version of Skyrim for PC, PS4, and Xbox 1, what other game(s) would you most like to see completely overhauled and re-released for modern consoles? (modified from StormRider71)
- Third was Red Dead Redemption. Never played it. Heard about it though. Some kind of western game, wasn't it?
- Second was Fallout and Fallout 2. I think I've heard of this every year. You know how much remodeling that would be? It might cost more than it was worth in the first place.
- And first was Morrowind and Oblivion. I think they are making one of Morrowind and Skyrim called "Skywind," but it is a long time from being completed....and PC only.
