☆ My First Encounter With A "BLOATER" ☆ #TLOU #GamersUnite

What's the most memorable thing about Bioshock?
 
The jaw dropping twist in the tale?

The amazing gameworld?

OR

That first encounter with a BIG DADDY!!??!!
 
For me it was most definitely the moment when you experience the awesome power and devastating scariness of the BIG DADDY!
 
It was a defining moment in the last generation of video games.
 
One where you are genuinely scared........
 
Yesterday I had a repeat of one of those moments........

Fallout games are all about the journey rather than the destination......


I have been exploring the Mojave Wasteland for the last 3 months and it has been so much fun....

BUT The Journey ENDS HERE

Throughout the Fallout series you are given the option to bring along a companion for the ride and I am a great fan of companions as the Wasteland can be a very lonely place for the courier…

 

The companionship afforded by these select band of Wasteland heroes 

(& villains) is extremely valuable to the player in combat and funnily enough the additional person to share the load with means you form a lasting relationship with this person (if that’s possible).

 

It's an odd occurrence really as you begin to start really caring about these sharers of your experience, especially after you assist them with their very own side quest which invariably gives you some backstory on how they have managed to end up in the wasteland.

★Fallout New Vegas - Game Diary 4 "Weapon Of Choice"★ #GamersUnite

Whilst marauding the Mojave Wasteland you get the opportunity to trial many superb weapons.


There are bog standard weapons like the .357 Magnum or the 9mm Pistol.


Then there's the slightly more advanced weapons like the Laser Pistol or the  10mm Machine Gun.


Not forgetting the fact that there's a whole plethora of melee weapons to utilise such as the humble baseball bat through to the Super Sledge and other quirky ,specially named melee weapons such as

Fist Of Rawr & Golden Gloves

After that you get the rarer versions of your standard weapon set which come affectionate names such as Annabelle and Lucky


Then there's the awe inspiring super destructive weapons such as the Missile Launcher or The Fat Man!


Over the course of the walkabout in Mojave you get attached to particular weapons.


Here's The Top 5 Weapons Of Choice that we make sure our hero, Dana, doesn't leave the vault without.......

☆Fallout New Vegas - Game Diary 3 - "Are You A Lock Picker OR A Computer Hacker?" ☆ #GamersUnite

In Fallout the Lockpick and Computer Hacking skills are art-forms…

 

Lockpick requires a steady hand as you tease the Bobby Pin inside the lock and try and find the right sweet spot to get the lock to open.

 

The harder the lock the tougher the sweetspot is to find which will get you entry into the forbidden area.

 

Computer Hacking on the other hand is a test of logic and problem solving as you scan the words and characters for a clue to the terminal password.

 

Within the jumbled characters and words there are a number of brackets which ,when in the right order and selected, will take away a 'Dud' password or even replenish your guess allowance.

 

With the guess allowance set at 4 the Computer Hacking is tough nut to crack as you search for that elusive pword and a <> or a ( )

 

Once you have cracked the code you then get to view the forbidden information that was being concealed away or even sometimes that terminal will give you access to a particular door that you may not otherwise be able to open.

2 years after finishing Fallout 3 I decided it was time to be consumed by the post apocalyptic wasteland again.

 

Fallout New Vegas was my experience of choice this time and this time I've decided to trial the documenting of my Mojave Wasteland journey.

 

This could make for good video games journalism or it might just end up being tedious.......but I'll give it a go because I'm sure that buried within the Wasteland is a Story to tell.........
