I’m a big fan of the Fallout video-game franchise. I got a section of a shelf at home dedicated to bobble-heads, Pop Figures, collector editions, plushes and what not.
The main image of Fallout is the character Vault-Boy. The mascot of an insane corporation called Vault-Tec. His ominous smile plastered all over the post-nuclear wasteland of Fallout’s fictional universe.
Today I get an email from the Bethesda Store trying to sell me a t-shirt that says “War Never Changes” and with a graphic of an average man-looking Vault Boy seeing a nuclear bomb going off.
With potential war looming against North Korea and the U.S., I find this very fucking ironic. I can’t buy this shit anymore.
I’ve wrapped up the main story in Fallout 4 for the first time, so here are some of my favourite shots along my journey. Please excuse the HUD display. No spoilers.
Eerie. Gloomy. Who’s that at the end of the tracks?
“No…no…It’s not fair…There was time….”
Diamond City, made inside Boston’s famous baseball diamond.
Watching this fly over was something spectacular under the morning sky.
My collection of Power Armour.
Found this at the Atomic Cat’s Garage. One of my favourites.
A perfectly composed scene with Nick Valentine asking my character about Shaun.
A very artistic scene here. I tip my hat to the programmer who placed these here.
A gorgeous retro-futuristic poster. Nearly preserved in the Commonwealth.
I just love The Minutemen symbol.
I think I found this in an office somewhere.
This kitty lived in Covenant. The only thing not keeping a secret.
Piper wondering why this place stinks so much, and wondering when we’re gonna leave.
This Mirelurk looks like he’s doing “Buddy Christ”.
