Brace yourself, Fallout 4 is coming.

And I finally have a reason to get a next gen console…

I had been thinking of doing so for some time but I’m so far behind. I have a good twenty plus games from the last gen that I haven’t played what with my travelling and general disinterest in video games in the last five or so years. The general consensus is that I should purchase the PS4. A lot of people seem to want me to add them on PSN.

I’m in no rush, I think fallout isn’t out until November. I can wait for console prices to fall further and probably get the console with fallout 4 in some kind of package deal. More about the game. The reveal looked very typical of fallout 3. I could never decide which of the two I preferred.

I liked the atmosphere of fallout 3 but I found Vegas a lot less rigid. I think that in all I put more hours into FNV than fallout 3. I think fallout nv was just a lot more fun to screw around on. You know that you’ve put too many hours into a game when you smack a notoriously over-powered deathclaw around with a bladed gauntlet.

I did wonder about the BOS airship in the intro. Part of me really wants to be able to fly that thing. The introduction of vehicles in fallout would be an interesting mechanic even if their usage was limited in keeping with lore and the post apocalyptic setting. It would be interesting but a part of me doubts it.

We also saw dogmeat, our faithful hound. I’m kinda glad we have our dag because that animal saved my ass many times. I came to love that digital dog. I was surprised by the protagonists line or two of dialogue. It’s about time he had a voice.

I also hope they add all the little details that made Vegas such a good game. The stories, tragic suicides. The lovers whose skeletons are found in their final embrace. It was dark as hell but it set the scene. My ideal would’ve a mix of the fallout 3 atmosphere and those details from new Vegas.

I wonder if it’s smarter to wait a month or two to buy the game. I remember the glitches and all the fixes that new Vegas needed. It was a great game but buggy as hell. Probably smarter to let them work out the kinks before buying the game. 

At the moment this is the game I’m looking forward to.

It’s Sunday again.

Sundays for me mean one thing and one thing only, boredom. I don’t have anything to do around the house or outside the house. Gaming has kinda been ruined for me, I can’t sit and play games. I’d put my guitar on but I can’t even be bothered with that. Last night was the beginning of an off day for me, as if Sunday couldn’t get any worse. I got to thinking last night which is something I should have probably avoided. It looks like I’ll be writing today and by writing I don’t mean posting a spiderman meme with a relevant title.

I woke up, put on coffee, put some music on and had a cigarette. That is literally all I’ve done today. The only friend I can be bothered to see is out-of-town so I’m not out today. Yesterday I was considering being more social but if it means I have to sit in my friend’s house and watch him play FIFA 14 for hours I’ll pass. Same goes for Call of Duty. The way I saw it I can go out and find new friends or just go see old ones. This is all irrelevant seeing as my priority should really be looking for work. I’m not sure if I wrote that for you or for me.

So Survivor 2299 is a fake…

I will admit it had me for a few days but I’m a skeptical S.O.B at the best of times so I was just waiting for someone to report a discrepancy somewhere and they did eventually confirming my suspicion that it was a fake. It does surprise me how so few people expected a Rickroll, this was a perfect opportunity and everyone should have seen it coming. People jumped on the hype train and got stupid. Lesson learned. Until next time. People should have twigged when the domain was registered with Go-daddy and the site’s code changed after a thread on Reddit disputed its authenticity. I mean if those weren’t red flags then you’re a little slow.

I kinda feel bad for r/fallout. They seem genuinely upset if not angry about the whole thing. If I was as invested and less cynical maybe I’d be too. From the other side of the fence I’d have to say that this was a 9/10 troll. Would have been a 10/10 if the troll in question didn’t hesitate and change the site’s code. I’d bet he or she was in that thread at the time, started sweating and screwed it all up. I bet that fucker is laughing his/her ass off right now and I have but one thing to say to them:
Well played. Well played.

And to r/fallout. Although you were naive I do feel for you. Learn from this and don’t get fooled again. I feel your feels.

What the actual fuck?

I recently read an article saying that EA digital purchases are going to be more expensive on next-gen consoles. My first thought was ‘ha that would be a bitch if EA actually made good games.’ Then I saw a few on the list I liked and it began to bother me a little. To give you a real idea a normal game here is something like £40 maybe a little more if you bother with all that special edition crap. They’re looking at charging you around £62 for their games. What the actual fuck? What gives a piss poor company like EA the right to charge so much for these games, it’s an insult really. I’ve often asked myself how such a company that makes such a poor product could still exist, I honestly hope that pulling this crap is the death of Electronic Arts but it won’t be. Unfortunately. Also if these games are available in stores of their usual price why is somebody going to spend the extra money? Some sort of extra content maybe?
Good thing that AC:4 and BF:4 are available on the PS3 because to be honest these two games are the only reason EA sees a penny of my money other than that the rest of their products aren’t worth bothering with. No shit to their original creators or developers, I have no issue with them, just EA.

All dressed up and nowhere to go.

And I was going to be social tonight… I arranged to see my friend today after he has been with his pregnant fiancee for a few days. It’s no biggie or anything, all we were going to do was play GTA V online and maybe some Battlefield 4 too, might have a few beers. Just normal guy shit. Life has moved fast for both of us, him more than me of course but I’ve had my own adventures. I guess it kinda takes us back to ’05 when we’d do it every weekend. It’s happening a little more often because he’s going to be a father, funny how life does that. He is relatively young, mid twenties to be more exact. Soon it’ll be a rarity. At the moment my life is going absolutely nowhere but I’m turning it toward some direction by the new year, hopefully.

I got clean and everything, Sundays are always a lazy day. No exceptions. On the seventh day I rested…
I like to be clean generally but it definitely gives a sense of routine when you’re stuck in limbo. Sunday is my day off regardless. I do not attend any church and therefore have nothing to do on a Sunday. The only time I’ve ever actually enjoyed Sunday was in good old ‘Murica because things were still open and after church there was food and book shopping. Life was good. I have to admit that I miss Sunday nights with my woman and her family. That said the day of Thanksgiving is destined to suck because I loved that holiday.

Well we’ve re-arranged for another day anyway so it isn’t that bad. I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go. I can play fallout but I want to sleep tonight. Today I tried to play GTA V offline and ended up using the money to buy LS customs, driving into a bar and shooting some people, driving off and eventually getting arrested for the first time ever because a cop caught me off my guard. I just couldn’t really be bothered with it. Now I was stupid enough to get an Xbox 360 instead of a PS3 and due to the fact I’m not on Xbox live that garage glitch is kinda game breaking in terms of completely fucking up the car customization and storing your favorites. This is kinda off-topic but alas it pisses me off immensely.

Things are mediocre at best.
I wonder who’s gonna get killed this Black-Friday. I know that’s in bad taste but I really don’t get why or how you kill someone accidentally or maliciously over a fucking bargain.

The truth is out there

Fallout 4

Now this is a game I’m genuinely excited for. There’s been a lot of speculation with the tweets from three dog’s voice actor which seem to confirm that fallout 4 is underway. Then there’s the survivor 2299 website which is fake and had/still has a lot of people fooled. All of it is hyping people up for the release of this game. Even if the second one was just a clever way of screwing with people. Either way I look forward to this game. I wondered if anyone else here was eagerly awaiting news. Let’s hope it doesn’t go Van Buren on us. I thought I’d also like to add that three dog annoys the living shit out of me.
