    The responses that were given seem to assume that you mean the more recent installments, but assuming you mean the original Fallout, the answer is a resounding yes. If you do mean Fallout 3, consider first if you didn't mind the Elder Scroll awkwardness and lack of story and if you enjoyed the faffing about in an open world, then the answer might be yes, or no, depending on your preferences.

    april first. Some game developers just have to do something. Pity. Most jokes are bad.

    Guildwars 2 had placed an film grain black and white over the display, and locking the arms into a big T or airplane. Unplayable.

    At work, we had the first all figures in the green. All departments. Hoorah!!!!!

    Hard work boys, and no it has nothing to do with the fact that we measure time differently. Also that every time unit with extra service is noted with a fork into the books.

    We did fire one lazy sod who was present, wrote his time down but did not actually work. Only possible after demoting his friends/bosses. Some people, like him, have the nack to just stumble over a new job. Amazing.

    So my UPS started switching to battery every couple of seconds and I got really annoyed because I was certain that it hasn't been more than 2 years since I last changed the battery... and then it turned out it's been more than 4. :eek:

    I have a lot of those, "Oh yeah, I saw that guy like a couple of years ago... in 2005," moments.

    Time's fun when you're having flies.

    I finally finished the draft for a second book. Now it's a matter of fine tuning it before submitting it to the press. Hopefully it passes peer review in short order.

    Well Easter is going well, I found out that relative are way easier to deal with when you've drank like.... I dunno like 9 ounces of vodka ? I honestly don't know. I'm quite drunk at the moment. I learned the metric system in school so ounces mean **** to me. Uncle tell me I've drunk about 9 ounces. Is that a lot ?

    Well, how's this for you: A shot is generally considered to be an ounce of alcohol. So you have had 9 shots. Now, I don't know your weight, but I suspect that is quite a bit.

    You'll feel great tomorrow!

    Well I'm home now, and I didn't drive, so there's that. According to Google 9 ounces is a little over a quarter of a liter, holy mother of god that's a lot of alcohol. I should seriously go to bed now.

    Bah, 9 ounces of vodka is nothing. What kind of lightweight drinkers are you?

    I played a game once, called Bloodrayne. An average game. I gave up playing when a savepoint was located after a jumping sequence. I tried the jumps over 50 times before I smashed my keyboard to pieces.

    But it had a nice story, and a female with hardly any clothes and big boobs. The feeding(Dhampir) was nice especially with the nazi's. Lots of blood, mostly due to her two swords attached to her arms.

    So, I remembered kristinna Loken who played Rayne in the movie and looked it up at Rotten Tomatoes. Only 4% out of a 100. (Uwe Boll)

    I don't get it. A fair looking lady, sex, violence and swords. How can you mess that up with only 4%. Why did someone not place the director a few steps in front of a wall.

    I mean, make a story just as thin as tomb raider. Find a nice looking actress, a few stunt D-doubles and a truckload of violence. Instant blockbuster hit!

    Only 4%.... The shame....

    Bloodrayne and Bloodrayne 2 were both actually pretty decent games.

    As for the movie, it was in no way memorable, but that's par for the course with Uwe Boll. You grab a bucket of popcorn, watch Loken bounce around for a good hour or so, and then forget about it. You don't go watching an Uwe Boll movie expecting it will change your life.

    Just saw "It Follows" today. That was one creepy flick.
