Brian and I got ourselves a PS3 for Christmas – a little early – and so this Saturday has been devoted to gaming, specifically marathon sessions of Fallout 3. We both loved the first Fallout (and I think he liked Fallout 2, though I never played it), so it was an obvious choice for our first PS3 game.

I took a stab at playing it this morning, but I’m not all that good at any game I deem “twitchy,” which means anything that requires more coordination than taking out your average Dragon Warrior slime, because, although it’s not apparent from this blog – at least, I do hope it’s not apparent – I’ve got some mild coordination issues. Thanks to rather a lot of physical therapy when I was very young, it only really plagues me when I’m trying to remember which button changes the perspective, and the camera is pointed somewhere at my feet, I may have accidentally given my pistol to a dead ant, and oh, by the way, there’s a pair of rabid molerats trying to eat me and I just simply can’t deal. On the upside, that doesn’t happen to me very often, because I play the kind of games where everyone takes turns beating on each other like civilized folk. I can handle a very small amount of twitch in my games – I did play through the first Fallout, once as a pacifist – but past a certain point, I’m pretty hopeless.

Also, I’m pathetically easy to creep out – something about horrifying post-nuclear wastelands just tends to make me antsy, you know? When I played the first Fallout, I nearly held my breath the whole time I was in the Glow. Still, I notice that Brian is just now, after playing all day, wandering around the area I got myself repeatedly killed in earlier, so I wonder if my problem is that I got in too over my head and didn’t realize it?

In any case, Fallout 3 features some nicely tailored, practical-looking Vault jumpsuits, but me, I’ve got a soft spot for the shiny retro ones. The Vault number is on the back, so you can choose for yourself which vaults Ivy and Grace hail from.

  1. I finally bought Fallout 3 a month or so ago. What a wonderful way to connect paper dolls to your other interests!

  2. For a minute there, I thought that was a superhero outfit…*shudders* Anyway, although I don’t play video games much…never did…this jumpsuit’s kind of awesome. I love it! (Although it took some getting-used-to with the colors.)

  3. Fallout 3! I knew there was a reason I liked you! :D I think that’s actually the only XBox game I’ve ever played. And I suck. But it’s still fun. I’m ridiculously excited about this outfit XDD

  4. ooooooh! pretty! a nice warm outfit for winter! shiny is best! Hey Liana, do you think you could do a parka with fur? that would be nice! anyone agree? Merry Christmas!

  5. I’m pathetically easy to creep out, too. I slept with the lights on for a few nights after I saw ‘Coraline’. I have a friend who’s into the ‘Fatal Frame’ series and when that game has Japanese spirit-ghost-things leaping out at you all the time to the point where I made her let me stay the night because I didn’t walk a quarter-mile home by myself in the dark.

    So, believe me, you are not alone. Of course, you’re NEVER alone…..

  6. I didn’t get to play much of Fallout 3, too many mutant things and not enough bullets :) Out of curiosity, would you consider making something Tron inspired? I loved Clu’s jacket in the second one, when he was doing is Emperor of Rome impersonation.
