Fallout

Made by Interplay, released in 1997

Abandoned vaults and giant scorpions



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2009! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




SHORT INSTALLMENT OF FALLOUT TODAY since I need to actually play more now. WHAT LIES WITHIN VAULT-15?

Just have to get past the old prospector first.

QUICK, INTO THE ABANDONED WELL

A cave. Intriguing.

CAVE RATS! I NEVER SAW IT COMING

Rat stew.

Anyway looks like this vault has had a bit of trouble, what with its door fallin off and such.

LET'S GO INSIDE

OH FINE, I'LL GO LOOK AT THE LOCKER IF YOU INSIST, GREEN BOX IN THE CORNER

I forget what was in here, but apparently it wasn't important enough for me to cap. I ASSUME IT WAS AMMO OR SOMETHING

Big rat.

THE BIGGER THEY ARE, THE HARDER THEY FALL

Kapow!

It might look like my buddy Ian here hasn't been very helpful but he has. You'll see.

Lame, giant mutated rat doesn't have any giant mutated loot. WHAT A RIPOFF

I obsessively checked almost everything you could click on in here. It's all broken. I trimmed most of that for your convenience. You can't fix any of it either if you were curious.

Oh hey, a level!

So here's what your stat screen looks like normally. Intriguingly blank window down there, hmmm.

Oh neat! I like this kind of thing.

I imagine slaughtering a town would probably push you into the negative territory.

RAT-CATCHER

Anyway lets use this rope I traded from that lady to go down this shaft here

ROPE IS ALWAYS USEFUL

More walking tumors! What kind of vault is this.

Being dead and all.

GIANT ROCKS, THE FINEST IN BEDDING

MORE ROPE YES gimme gimme gimme

Oh neat, your appearance changes with your armor! You don't see that enough in my opinion.

I CAN USE ANY TOILET I WANT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT I'M A WOMAN

Anyway moving along

LET'S GO DOWN THE NEXT SHAFT

Man. Rats.

Hey cool, I knocked that rat around according to my status box.

Man, I probably could have used those emergency supplies too.

HUMANS???

Or all the cats the original Vaultdwellers had, who knows.

Anyway at this point I let Ian go kill stuff while I raided all the lockers. Hey, dynamite!

YOU'RE DOIN GREAT IAN

KEEP IT UP

Sucker.

Ian gives the pig rat a much needed pep talk.

YOU MEAN THIS VAULT DIDN'T HAVE A WATER CHIP AFTER ALL

OH NOOOOOOOOO

Well that's done anyway.

Cool, eye shooting.

I'LL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT, STATUS BOX

YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU CHECK EVERY SQUARE INCH

The great Ratcatcher, friend to us all.

HA YES

TOLD YOU

You can read these for a skill boost I think.

Alright alright I'm going

BACK TO SHADY SANDS

Darn it, now I'm hungry.

YEAH LET'S DO THIS I'M PUMPED

SCORPIONS

Well if they insist I'll come right in

Big scorpion.

RIGHT IN THE SCORPION BRAIN

Ha ha ha didn't even touch me

Also yeah I'd imagine being shot in the brain would knock you a little bit senseless

anyway went through murdering radscorpions and went up a level! Now I can get perks!

This could be interesting.

Eh.

Could be useful.

Haha this would be nice, but it's one of those things where I feel like an item might do the same thing. But I could be wrong.

OBEY ME

This could be nice, hmm.

Oooooo

But my int is already at max.

Hmm!

Then I went and asked Alex what to do.

He recommended Awareness! Alright let's do it then.

Then I dumped the other points into some stats like last time but I assume you're not very interested in that sort of thing.

AAAA YOU SHOT ME IN THE BRAIN AAAA

No problem.

YOU GUYS ARE PANSIES

Mmm, junk.

>:(

While waiting for the day to pass. Aaah, the satisfying strikethrough.

TAKE MY RADSCORPION TAIL

TAKE IT

And it went right up his nose.

Wooooo

PESTER PESTER PESTER

ya wuteva bai

Interrupted!

LAME

CAN'T I JUST CARRY WATER WITH ME

RADSCORPION IN THE LIGHT!

sadly not neon colored

Movin right along in search of good times and good news

with good friends you can't lose

This could become a habit!

Hey neat, a box of stuff! I forget what stat influences this sort of thing but I ain't complaining.

froooot

WOOO JUNKTOWN WOOOOO ROADTRIP

What a lovely town.

Like many games that let you put away or take out weapons, I often forget to put them away. WOOPS

Man me and this law, I have a feeling we're not going to get along

Leather, clothing of the future

I like jumping topics randomly HEY DO YOU LIKE PIE?

Oh now I've got Mogwais to deal with great

I just like the scenery don't mind me

also i was obsessively checking for items

Tee hee, killian darkwater

So Gizmo vs Killian, interesting

For a fee.

MAYBE I WILL

or maybe i won't, it depends

QUEST!

Alex says this isn't as straightforward as the others. Oooo. BUT WE'LL HAVE TO SEE IN OUR NEXT EDITION
