LAST TIME we found out there were a bunch of supermutants somewhere I'd have to kill, and the Brotherhood of Steel wanted me to go to someplace called the Glow for some reason. Sounds fun! And healthy!
dum de dum
Here, you can see my radiation resistance is at a measly 10%. This will not do!
Pop a few of these babies here...
Yeah, now we're talking.
What's that Ian, you want one? Too bad, suck it up.
Alright THIS time I'm not gonna die while I'm walking around here. Hopefully.
I want to take a moment here to mention that the item system in this game is remarkably stupid, and that just using the rope in my inventory gave me a "That didn't do much" message and made it vanish entirely, causing me to load and try again. I think you have to select the rope, or the hole, and then select the rope or something FRICK I DON'T REMEMBER IT'S JUST ANNOYING BASICALLY
Looks just like that other abandoned vault we explored that other time!
People in the future sure loved their tables.
Nothing worthwhile to rob from the dead here. RIPOFF
Oh hey I was running low on plasma
Wait there's a trap near
what do i do
Poor Dogmeat got hit by the trap. Which seems to happen a lot.
He can take it.
Nothin over here, mostly.
Must check everything
Huh, lot of weird stuff here. Alex said motion sensors were kinda useless so forget that.
Tools can be useful when you want to fix something, so I'll take that.
GET SOME READING DONE
This looks like the guy I came to see!
A hard drive, how peculiar
An odd looking hard drive BUT STILL
I CAN FIX IT
You don't say.
I'll just borrow this here.
OW HEY I HAVE THE CARD LET ME THROUGH
Do you want me to use science on the door first what
OW WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
Oh you have to specifically use the card from your inventory on the door, fine. BE THAT WAY.
ONWARDS AND... DOWNWARDS
Nothin new here.
What have we here
I have a feeling these Sentry Robots are going to pop up and try and kill me, probably when I fix the power.
Hey, a rocket! I'll just throw this at an enemy really hard.
There we go.
Well if there's a trap, surely I can disable it here.
More eventually deadly robots. Hmm.
THIS IS GOING TO BE ANNOYING LATER, I JUST KNOW IT.
Ugh so much ammo everywhere
SO MUCH AMMO
ON WE GO
I see "the drain is clogged" and my first thought is HOW CAN I UNCLOG IT
Turns out it's just flavortext.
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON CINNABAR ISLAND
Oh neat, a computer. TELL ME ABOUT POKEMON CLONING, COMPUTER
Also, I ate a thesaurus.
You don't say.
So this must be the cause of all those supermutants! Mystery solved.
And if so, how do I make it? What random items will I have to combine?
Oh. Well I guess there's only one solution then.
2002 eh? Not that long ago!
Although the nuclear holocaust in this happened in what... the 1950s, didn't it? I forget.
Please keep going, it's fascinating.
OH BOY OH BOY
DO I SMELL A GRUE
Aww that was not as interesting as I'd been hoping.
Yeah yeah I know that, tell me more about FEEEV.
Uh, because. NEXT QUESTION
Unprotected sex, you know.
YEAH THIS IS THE BEST PLACE FOR CHESS WHILE MY RAD-X SLOWLY WEARS OFF
I have no idea if any of this is important but BY GOD I WILL SAVE ALL OF IT
More talk of this powerarmor. I need to get me some of that.
AND SO, THE CONTAGION "LUCIFER-ALPHA" WAS RELEASED, SIGNALING THE CATASTROPHE no wait wrong game
Come to California for all your genetic experiment needs!
Darn it, I still need to fix this I guess.
Do NOT shoot these computers, we're serious.
Anyway this elevator needs MORE POWER CAPN so we'll have to go fix this generator first.
Played a lot of Pool in the Glow before it went down.
Yes I will take all your robot hearts.
FINALLY A PLASMA PISTOL AND I'M CARRYING TOO MUCH JUNK TO KEEP IT
WHAT A WORLD WHAT A WORLD
time to shuffle some stuff around
How'd this peasant escape the castle
Alright, this looks important.
Hey guys could you give me some space
UGH they trapped me against the generator FOREVER in such a place where I couldn't actually do ANYTHING, including fix the generator, until one of them moved AND IT TOOK THEM AGES ARRRRRRRRGH
FALLOUT THIS IS SO OBNOXIOUSSSS
even more annoying cause I gave the tool i wanted to use to Ian so I had to steal it from him but I didn't have enough ROOM until HE MOVED and ARGH
There we go, no thanks to you losers.
Man I want another perk, when can I get another perk
Ah that's much better.
And just as predicted, robot attack!
SEE IF YOU CAN SHOOT ME WITH NO SENSORS, ROBOT
Yeah, that's right.
Amusingly enough, the robot used a normal gun to shoot at me and company. I dunno why the image of a robot holding a sniper rifle cracks me up so much. WELL WHATEVER IT'S MINE NOW, BUDDY
Alright, let's finally check out Floor 5 after all this time.
OH MY GOD ROBOTS
Thanks for that robot, that's really helpful.
Upon being blinded, the robot promptly ran away. Ha, sucker.
I didn't take caps of this, sadly, but Alex told me a certain grenade works good on the robots, and this battle was actually pretty tough. So at one point I decided to try throwing the grenade at a pretty close range, which promptly incinerated me, Tycho, AND the robot. OOPS.
I had to load and try again, as you can imagine.
You don't say.
Hey, all the specimen tubes are up! Let's see if Jenova's in one.
My favorite magazine.
Also that armor in there was way better than the metal armor, as well as way lighter. ALL THAT ITEM SHUFFLING LAST TIME FOR NOTHING
ah well, whatever.
That's more like it.
Oh hey, this looks important.
More plasma guns! Just like everyone keeps telling me to use! Better pick this up.
I guess it doubles as a bayonet.
CLOGGED TABLES WHY DO YOU MOCK ME
So many pistols. I will take this laser pistol for my own.
Alright, let's actually use these and see what happens.
Jeez Barnett way to be a buzzkill WHY WON'T YOU LET US EXPERIMENT
I hope our escaped, mutated, hyperintelligent raccoons don't cause any problems.
The number of animals chosen seems so random in these. I guess animals are kinda hard to come by these days.
SURELY NOTHING BAD WILL COME OF THIS
Oh hey, I get experience for checking these, sweet.
LASERS: NEAT? Y/N
Wait, they just had sniper rifles, what kind of super robots where these suckers fighting
A FAIRY TRIPPED, IAN, WHAT DO YOU THINK
I was briefly concerned going in that Ian, Tycho, and Dogmeat might have trouble with the Glow since I didn't give THEM any Rad-X, but actually it seems they are perfectly fine. I AM THE ONLY ONE SUBSCEPTIBLE TO RADIATION POISONING I GUESS
Anyway, now that I've got their thing, surely the Brotherhood will let me in now! I wonder what stuff they've got in there. Maybe some neat stained glass windows or organs or something.
