Fallout

Made by Interplay, released in 1997

I was doing... something... what was it...



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2010! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




So after bbot got kicked from a somethingawful tf2 server for being too annoying (this is indeed possible), he came sobbing to me like a baby asking for a Fallout post. I took pity on him SO HERE IT IS.

I've mentioned before that I had some serious problems getting Fallout to run properly on this computer without having to use this obnoxious side program, but Alex apparently got tired of me complaining about it and bought Fallout for me on Steam WHICH DOES SOLVE THE PROBLEM ACTUALLY

thank god

So maybe I can actually get somewhere in this, haha

IT'S BEEN AGES SINCE WE'VE SEEN THE WORLD OF FALLOUT! DO YOU NOT REMEMBER WHAT I WAS DOING OR WHAT HAPPENED? THAT'S COOL, I DON'T REMEMBER EITHER! We can find out together.

Oh yeah there was some chick I saved from someone, I sort of recall now

WHAT DO YOU THINK, RADIC

Good thing I killed him already! At least, I'm pretty sure I did. I think I did this out of order.

Oh Sinthia, you wacky prostitute! Ho ho ho.

And now I will never get to see this since I shot him. I've been deprived.

miss would you like to lay down

miss

This sounds vaguely familiar but eh

VICTOR SOUNDS LIKE A FUN GUY

And soon all of you are going to be dead. DEAD!

They've been practicing all day to say that.

I have no intention of killing Killian (haha) but why not lie to the bloodthirsty gang SOUNDS LIKE FUN

This is very touching. I NEED TO TALK TO THIS GUY REPEATEDLY, NOTHING BAD COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN

WHOOPS!

The only place to aim if you ask me.

THERE COULD BE MILD BLINDNESS, YOU DON'T KNOW

So uh I guess that takes care of the Skulz? Oops.

GIVE ME YOUR RUPEES

this barrel ain't going to watch itself

At least someone in Junktown seems happy.

Killian has nothing to say about me murdering all the Skulz. Well darn.

do i know you

What do I know again? I think that guy chopped up people or something?

Well dang, I thought that'd do more than that. OH WELL.

This was actually my reaction pretty much verbatim.

In retrospect I should've just killed the guy. RADIC LEAVES A SWATHE OF BLOOD WHEREVER SHE GOES

Thank you, doppelganger!

How long has this bar been here

YOU CAN LAY DOWN, IT'S OKAY

IGNORE HOW I'M TALKING TO YOU REPEATEDLY AND ASKING THE SAME BASIC QUESTIONS :D

Obviously I have to either steal it, destroy it, or protect it.

Quite suddenly, this guy decks some random woman. What.

she cried, a hand held to her forehead

I get the feeling I was supposed to do this earlier. OOPS.

what

yes thank you

Well that's straightforward enough.

ALREADY TOOK CARE OF IT, THANKS

Deathclaw what

You have a name? COME WITH ME

Huh, interesting.

I... ASSUME THIS HELPED ME SOMEHOW!

I assume the Brotherhood's a bunch of monks.

Well that was sort of useless. WHATEVER

Everybody in this town seems behind on the news.

You're a little late Tycho BUT JOIN ME ANYWAY

Well at least I accomplished SOMEthing.

LET'S GO TO SHADY SANDS CAUSE

I DUNNO

WHY NOT

These guys were pansies.

However when I got to Shady Sands it crashed. Well whatever.

LET'S SEE WHO THESE RAIDERS ARE

lol petrox

this sounds like they're badtouching shady sands

i do not approve

HAHAHAHA YEAH RIGHT

i mean

hahahaha

I am? Well that's news to me.

So I decided to try Shady Sands again and BAM IT CRASHED

AGAIN

So I guess I'm never going back to Shady Sands. I assume there was nothing important there anyway.

I wandered Junktown for a while but didn't see any more Skulz after I killed the first batch and no one talked about them or anything. Yet this quest is still active. I THINK I BROKE SOMETHING

oh well

WHATEVER I'M MOVING ON

LET'S GO TO THE NECROPOLIS

SOUNDS LIKE FUN

oh hai zombie

THIS IS AWKWARD

Anyway I killed the heck out of them and decided whatever, I'm exploring this city now. WHO'S GOING TO STOP ME

CRITICALLY HIT FOR NO DAMAGE? THAT'S TERRIBLE

AND IT BLEW THROUGH HIS ARMOR TOO!

These guys are easy.

OH HEY I DIDN'T KNOW YOU GUYS COULD TALK

UH

SORRY ABOUT KILLING YOUR FRIENDS

I immediately messed with his stuff.

STRANGELY ENOUGH, HE ATTACKED ME

MAN, SOME PEOPLE

Ghouls love soda.

These two things look useful.

EYES GETTIN SHOT OUT LEFT AND RIGHT

These zombies sure don't like people in their stuff.

Stupid zombies, shoo.

Oh hey, a level. WELL I'M NOT COMPLAINING.

More speech can only lead to good things.

A SEWER LEVEL

WHAT A SHOCK

you don't say

Found this in a corner. Hmm.

Thanks for that, Ian.

these ghouls are surprisingly eloquent

are they dead or what

game i am confused

ACCURSED MOUNTEBANK

Would zombies really need to eat or drink that much?

Shoot the zombie is on to me

This sounds like a mission tailormade for a player character such as myself!

This isn't me fishing for additional information, I actually immediately forgot where this guy told me to go.

these guys do kind of seem like pansies though

Stupid pesky rats

I'LL LOOK AT PIPES IF I WANT TO, GAME

mole rats are no match for me

(sidenote: i had completely forgotten how to reload in the meantime, so i would go into my inventory and reload manually

i figured it out around this point though)

As long as you zombies don't get in my grill we're fine

From hearing Alex talk about this game for years and years now, I can recall him saying something about a car, like getting gas for a car or something, and it made the game a lot easier? Eh I don't remember.

LARRY LOOKS LIKE A FUN GUY

oh no

Harry, the Super Mutant is available for children's parties.

>:B

OOPS

You can't really see it here but Harry has a giant plasma cannon. He shot me with it and cut me right in half! Shockingly, I did not get a cap of this. I apologize.

OOPS

let's try this again without the dying this time

That looks important

It turns out I just had to say I was a ghoul. DUUUUUUUUUUUH

Short mutants got no reason to live

HEY GUYS

LIGHTEN UP

HAW HAW HAW

66 damage, dang

Oh hey, there's a vault down here! What do you know.

And the elevator works!

Excuse me that rat wants its privacy thank you

Hey Gary

Hey Bob

how's it goin

alright

As the game warned me, there really wasn't much in here except these. THEY LOOK IMPORTANT SO I'M TAKING THEM

Check the last floor

HEY GUYS WHATCHA WATCHING

GUYS

GUYS

fine be that way

well that looks promising

what

Conspicuously glowing computer? Come here.

Oh hey, I got a water chip already! Haha this game isn't so tough after all.

you're kind of dead

Well that was my plan but I couldn't open his cell. OH WELL YOU'LL PROBABLY BE FINE GHOUL PRISONER

woooo another level

hmmm

OO OOO OOOO

I WANT A MYSTERIOUS STRANGER

OOOO HOW EXCITING

what the when did i get radiated

i assume that's bad but eh whatever

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME WATER PUMP

let's talk to the flasher instead

WORTH A SHOT

I GAINED A RADIATION LEVEL?? WHAT KIND OF STUPID HEALING IS THIS

SEE IF I PATRONIZE YOU PEOPLE AGAIN

Anyway I thought maybe I had to bring the parts I found back to the Zombie leader but he didn't tell me anything. So I ran BACK to the pump and used the parts on it like I should have in the beginning. DURRHURR

YOU WILL WORK PARTS

IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR YOU

Alright, I get a water chip and the Necropolis won't die out! Everyone wins.

Something terrible has to happen at this point, I got this chip way too fast. I'm sure of it.

NEXT UP: THE JOURNEY HOME! WHAT WILL HAPPEN???
