Where Did Ya Get That Hat?

Your hat, my head, now.
Finally got round to going to Little Lamplight and found an intact garden gnome on a pool table. Hell, yes, that's so taking pride of place in my Megaton Love Shack. I'm going to ignore the rest of the quest for now, and take the little fella home, display it with the 16 intact minituare garden gnomes I found the other day, and have Dogmeat guard it. Bollocks to the future of the Capital Wasteland, the gnome is much more important.

Another thing-wot-I-want but is Knick Knack's hat. Unfortunately, it seems unavailable for hat collecting; I can't kill him and nick it, what with him being an annoying child, am unable to pick-pocket it from him while he sleeps and he certainly won't trade it for really cool stuff. It's a damn shame, his police cap (and Zip's stunning mole-mining hat) would look great in my hat collection.

Nukes Are Fun

Today I found out that when you shoot the cars in Fallout 3, they go off like mini-nukes. It's brilliant, especially when you get them to go off in a chain reaction.

Never going to get this game finished, keep finding entertaining things to do.

NXE Is A Great Waste Of Time

It's not fair, the blokey's clothes section gets stripey trousers, and more shoes, and those Canadian hats that look warm, and trousery suits and MONOCLES.

Really must try to stop playing dressing up with my NXE dolly for at least five minutes. I'm a sucker for all this avatar shit and I don't know why. Should really be spending the time on improving the borked bits on this blog but trying pretend wedge heels and a panama hat is more fun.

Feel compelled to fill up this gap with meaningless text so I will. Here we are. Oh god it isn't enough.

Cigarettes Everywhere

Fallout 3 makes me want a fag which isn't helpful when giving up tobacco. After accidentally coming upon a camp filled with what seemed like a thousand Super Mutant Brutes, I shot everything in there (as you do) and proceeded to rifle through their boxes and corpses (limbs, some of them a bit jumbled up making it somewhat troublesome to get their items), and found, amongst other things, loads of cartons and packets of cigarettes.

Oh God.

I also found a ciggie in an ashtray, still smouldering away in a most appealling manner. Mmmmmmm, I could almost taste it and went a bit funny, and if there's ever a time that you need a cigarette, it's when you feel a bit funny after clearing out a camp filled with what seems like a thousand Super Mutant Brutes.

Digestive Teeth

Who's brilliant idea was it to include that ridiculously stupid bit with the digestive tract of a giant city-sinking worm in GOW2? Cos it sucked.

I'm gonna play Fallout 3 instead.

Fallout 3 Is Bloody Great

I've been playing through Fallout 3 for the past few days, and was a bit worried that it might be like Oblivion (which bored the tits off me). However, I have to say that it is utterly absorbing and a fantastic way to kill off any spare time you may have.

Everywhere is open at the start of the game, so I've not really bothered with the quests yet, instead I've been wandering around the Capital Wasteland finding new places to mark off on my map and consequently looting them. Taking everything like some sort of mental kleptomanic, then hoarding the good bits in my Megatown house, and selling the shite so I can buy tons and tons of ammo for all my hoarded weapons that I'll probably never use, but it really does seem to be the sensible to do when you're stuck 200-odd years in the future in a post-apocalytic nuclear wasteland.

I've also been amassing a collection of hats and displaying them on the desk back at my gaff, though some of them won't stand up nicely so it ruins the asthetic a little.
