The new engine has its perks and it’s flaws. We all know that. But there are some things that many of us can agree on, and it’s the design of the newer gen enemies looking a little…different.
The newer models of molerats just seem to look way less menacing than previous Fallout games. They’re smaller and are a lot more broken spawn-wise. Pathetic.
While the newer Fallout games incorporated a lot more story and character to the super mutants, the older model mutants just seem to be more memorable with the permanent protruding teeth and wide varieties of armor.
Feral or not, the ghouls in the newer Fallout games are not even remotely close to being as dangerous as they were in the past. I remember being terrified as a low level to wander the Wasteland or Mojave at night because of the endless lightning-speed ghouls. They’ve lost their touch and scare factor in the newer vanilla Fallout games.
This point is mainly just based off of the nostalgia factor for me and most players. We understand the idea that sentry bots are supposed to be beefy and very intimidating, but the gritty style and look of the sentry bots in the older games just hits different.
Again, it’s the menacing factor for the older mirelurks. While the queen in the newer games is equally as terrifying as the old games, it’s more crab-like and seems less mutated. I know there’s time frames and how long it takes the enemies to mutate lore-wise, but we can agree that the older mirelurks are more intimidating and fun to kill.
Doggystyle?!! We’re not animals! I know my wife better than that. She may have a habit of getting her hand stuck in the car door, and I am a handy man myself. When it comes to blue collar jobs however, it’s a no go for me. Growing up in the church, I assumed that all women weren’t like my wife.
Look, I know what a succubus is alright? I literally live in the church. I just had no idea that my sweet little angel would act like this. We were just at the county fair enjoying the food when a group of guys walked by dressed as medieval knights. They were quoting absurd things like necromancy and she started to chime in. It’s like she became a completely different person!
After talking to them for 15 minutes, she seemed a little off. I asked her how she knew all of this stuff and she basically shrugged me off. So later that night, I made sure to stay up and make sure she knew I wasn’t awake. What happened absolutely shocked me.
She left the house at 2:40AM. I knew exactly where she was heading. I followed her to one of the large tents at the fair. She had no idea that I was watching from afar. I-I can’t describe what I saw because I get sick. Those men, the cameras, the…I know now that I can never look at her the same again. Later that week, I started faking a bad cough and recommended her to go to the hospital.
The results came in. I had no idea that she was like this. I’ve been married to her for so long. I know I have it too. I-I just. I have to go now. There’s nothing else left to say.
It was 2008. At the time, my wife and I were struggling sexually. Not in an erectile dysfunction type of way, but in an adventurous way. We needed to spice things up a little yaknow? So one morning, we saw an ad in the paper.
We knew that this was exactly what we needed. It was the quickest unanimous decision her and I ever made. We knew that Boise didn’t offer much, but goddamn this was something. The fee wasn’t much either. I’m not telling you cuz that’s none of your business. What you do need to know, however, is how quick that 2 hour drive was. We were so excited that we didn’t even pack lunch.
We treated the whole introductory course like we weren’t going to plow the hell out of each other so we didn’t get the instructors suspicious. The minutes felt like hours as we were anticipating the best experience we were ever going to have. It was a cool, sunny day at around 73°F with mild winds. Perfect for hang doin. We drove to the drop site and waited for the right time.
And we have a liftoff! The cool wind grazing against my body only elevated my excitement. I know what I must do.
I signal my wife to open her legs. I make a dive for it. I know that the instructors on the ground are watching but I have been anxious for TOO long. The positioning and timing is perfect. And just like that…I’m in. Our dreams have come true as we are the only people in the world that are currently having sex whilst mid glide, probably. Everything is perfect.
Everything was perfect. The hang glides got intertwined and caused us to come spiraling towards the earth. We knew what we had to do. So right after finishing, we cut the lines and prepared to parachute to the surface. But for some reason, her parachute was still connected to the glide. She tried to escape but it seems that fate had other plans for her.
They heard my name and they’ve heard my desires. I will not confess to these accusations. The satisfaction and glory of the prosecutor will not be met. The judge heard my case. The jury didn’t seem to meet the agreement, however. So, after 14 years they finally got me. They finally got the Hang Glide Killer.
The Fallout series by Bethesda has been experiencing a drop in sales over the past few years. Ever since Fallout 76, less and less people are becoming interested in the story and franchise. My boss and I were recently in a meeting discussing what would cause an increase of sales, and I proposed the idea of having a variety of vehicles around the wasteland.
Everybody loves the stories of Dukes of Hazard and SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT. But imagine yourself running into one of these cars whilst traversing the wasteland. You’d be hootin’ and hollerin’ too if you experienced this like I did in the picture above.
Who needs mods to make your character go faster when you have the fastest car in the wasteland? Being able to find, restore, and drive around the wasteland running over ghouls and raiders will make you feel like the king himself.
Own Your Own Business
A super reliable way to earn caps! Think of it as the player trading Fallout 76 offered but with sick ass cars. It’s a reliable way to get to the quests you want without fast traveling. You could also have the hottest car in the whole server making you a target, or a stud.
Become A Professional
Forza ain’t got shit on these new Fallout ideas. Become the most experienced and respected racer in the wasteland. Battling other players and NPCs in epic tracks and open roads. You could also use this experience for extremely effective drive-by’s on those who deserve it.
Learn the Trade
Learn the REAL LIFE trade in the newest addition to the Fallout series. Who needs schooling and an apprenticeship when you can make an online living repairing the vehicles of the experienced racers and criminals. Imagine yourself as Ellie from the famous Borderlands series and you’ll understand where I’m coming from.
This post goes towards the console players and the demographic that fits us all so perfectly. We all know people that are like this.
We all love joining a party or game chat just to hear what Xx_deathk1llR_xX had for lunch. These people are probable one of the most annoying when it comes to a relaxing late-night gaming session. We don’t want to hear your Chipotle burrito. Mute your mic.
The Ear Rapist
You’ll just be randomly playing a video game or watching a video when all of a sudden, your friend decides to imitate the sound of a hippo getting railed by barbed wire. These friends are hilarious to have in a party just because of the pure randomness of their actions. If they do it too much however, they are just bound to get kicked from the party.
The Tryhard Ear Rapist
There’s always that one person that takes things way too seriously and acts like they’re trying out for a professional Rainbow 6 tournament. These people are fun to have in your party for the sole reason that you get enjoyment from their anger and screams. These are also the type of people that will lose in a Call of Duty match and make it impossible for everybody else to trash talk due to the pure volume of his/her voice.
Just your average Jerry.
This dude can’t help but forcefully turn you on to his music by blaring it into the mic. There are times where this dude’s music is so loud that you can hear his trap beats more than his callouts. If you encounter this individual, it’s best recommended to turn to Mr. Ear Rapist in your party to inform the kind fella that his music is just a tad excessive. A polite “SHUT THE FUCK UP!” would be perfect and simple enough.
The Wind Tunnel
This person for some reason is always hot to the point that he/she will always have their fan on and pointed directly into their mics. No matter how much you tell them to turn their fan off, they will always have a faint sound of a wind tunnel in their mics throughout the rest of the party chat. There’s not stopping it.
“I’ll Be Right Back”
This is the type of dude that will say, “Hey hold up I’ll be right back. I gotta piss.” or “Yo I gotta let my dog out. I’ll be right back.” and then remain AFK for the next 30 minutes to an hour. They’ll be gone for so long at times, you think that they’re preparing a meal for 4. Which in reality, is what they do.
You can hardly ever get this dude to finish a
This dude will make crucial callouts to your team in a match and then rage because you’re not listening to him. When in reality, he’s the idiot because he forgot to unmute his mic. This is a common occurrence with almost all players with a mic.
This person is usually permanently muted because he/she is too poor to even buy a mic or the games that you want to play. This is mainly because this person would rather spend their money on weed or booze. These people are extremely depressing and usually depressed themselves.
That was a brief list of most of my party chat encounters. I know there’s more out there but it would be impossible to name them all.
Everybody knows that the ways to modern cinema either involves real life locations, CGI, or a green screen. Green screens have been used for multiple cinematic masterpieces, so today I am going to discuss the best uses for green screens around the world.
You Can Literally Be In Minecraft
Why spend your Saturday morning with your family and friends when you could be killing the ender dragon and accidentally falling in lava in real life? Any person with sense would easily choose greenscreen Minecraft over family affection and friendship.
Covering Your Car
If you’re like me and live in a hot climate and don’t want to walk out to your car literally melting, you could cover your car with your greenscreen and keep it cool. You’re not a director for a movie. So you might as well put some use into your money.
Landing On The Moon For The First Time
We all know that shit never happened, but YOU can be the first to defy the deadly radiation from the sun on the moon’s lack of atmosphere by landing on the moon. While there is little reason why you would need to go there so urgently due to the fact that there isn’t a Cold War anymore but hey, it’ll be fun.
Meet Alan Jackson
He’s literally everybody’s favorite person on this planet. Why wouldn’t you want to see him. He’s the greatest country star of all time and everybody’s dad. You would be and idiot and I would hate you if you didn’t like him.
We all know we can’t do it in real life…BUT BEHIND A GREENSCREEN YOU CAN. No one will judge you I swear. Mainly because you’ll be by yourself committing these acts of violence against the innocent.
When none of your friends are awake and online, you get a feeling of loneliness and isolation that can’t be put into words. When working night shifts, you would tend to find yourself in this situation every weekend. A way to cope with this feeling is to play these certain video games alone. This is a short list of what I came up with.
With captivating environments and addicting combat, the Assassin’s Creed saga is always a go-to when nobody else is around to join your party or call. The 4th installment of the series, “Black Flag” is a fan favorite around the world for the unique environment and entertaining free-roam mechanics. Also…SHANTIES!
This 2016 Campo Santo indie release is a game like no other. Though the main story is short lasting around 4-5 hours, this open-world is a visual masterpiece for anybody looking to just relax and feel free and isolated from anybody else.
Grand Theft Auto
The king of all Rockstar games and a fan favorite all around, any game from the GTA series has hours upon hours of open-world fun for anybody mature enough to play it. Just don’t be that guy that goes into online and ruins everybody’s fun by constantly killing them.
Classic Halo Trilogy
Ah…The great feeling of nostalgia. Whether you were 8 the first time you heard about these games or 18, playing it today gives almost anybody joy. Going back on the old times and remembering all of the fun memories that you had with your friends in custom games and multiplayer. There’s no other feeling.
The Fallout Series
Of course Bethesda would be on here. While I could have put Skyrim as this entry, due to biased and personal experiences with friends, the Fallout series has one of the greatest communities in gaming history. The entrancing post-apocalyptic world has hundreds of hours of pure entertainment and fun experiences. Whether you started out playing the classic trilogy or began in the latest installment, this series is like no other.
The Metro Series
There seems to be a trend with post-apocalyptic video games and single-player enjoyment. The incredible immersion in the Metro series is often regarded as the best for any survival-horror game ever made. The desolate environment and the intriguing characters will have you hooked for a very long time.
This wouldn’t be a game list without Minecraft. Minecraft appeals to all ages and its thousands of mods offer years of playing experience and enjoyment. If you believe that there is nobody that wants to play video games with you, hop into a random server and meet new friends. You never know, they might become lifelong.
The Last of Us
Do you want to play one of the most graphically impressive and immersive video games of the modern world? Well look no further than The Last of Us series. There has been great controversy over the story-telling of the most recent release, but if you’re like me and play video games casually and not like a neckbeard, you will enjoy every moment of The Last of Us.
Alright listen, we all know that midnight snacks are the best snacks. But to determine which snack is the best is where the debate lies. So I (The Pidge) am going to determine which midnight snack is the most popular and best overall based on my totally credible sources… Here we go.
10.) Hot Pockets
Let’s face it, we all know that pizza or a hot pocket is god-like food to consume late in the evening, but there are its downsides. Let’s start out with the fact that you have to be awake and mobile enough to cook it and eat it. Personally, I never have enough energy to get up out of my bed and have the urge to go cook. This is why I rank it number 10.
Leftovers usually tend to sooth people’s sweet spots when it comes to breakfast or lunch for the upcoming week, but from my personal experience, there is nothing else like heating up the dinner that you had the night before when all other fast food delivery services are beginning to close. Leftover pizza or spaghetti is a must-try for a midnight snack.
We all know that water is delicious in the middle of the night right as you wake up, but have you ever had the sweet taste of an orange soda or a Pepsi as soon as you wake up. I will tell you that there is no other taste in the world than this one. The carbonation and the sweetness of the flavor will sooth and calm down whatever feeling you are experiencing in the moment.
Sit down, grab a nice glass of juice, and enjoy the night to yourself by chowing down on some delicious cereal. Cereal was clearly designed for breakfast but because you’re feeling adventurous, you decide that this philosophy does not apply to you any longer. So you chow down and enjoy your own personal freedom of judgement.
6.) A Basic Sandwich
An easy and reliable solution for your hunger in the middle of the night comes with basic fridge-found food between two pieces of bread. This option is often difficult in the middle of the night but extremely rewarding.
If you know, you know. Anybody that consumes nicotine will understand that waking up in the middle of the night in a drunken stuper or just having a bad dream can be easily calmed with a little nicotine. Every smoker can agree that the greatest nicotine buzz of the day is as soon as you wake up.
4.) Taco Bell
When in doubt, always go for the Bell. Always coming in clutch with its late hours, Taco Bell has quenched the hunger and thirst of millions in the wee small hours of the morning. Seriously, if you haven’t, try a burrito at midnight when nobody else is awake.
Your friend that has always been there by your side whenever you’re in need. The basic fluid that controls 70% of your bodies is bound to be in the top three of this list. Drinking water when being awake in the early hours of the morning is both healthy and satisfying.
2.) Gas Station Food
Open 24/7. Gas stations are always safe refuge for the hungry late at night. With an extremely large demographic of truckers, night owls, and stoners/drinkers, gas stations have always provided comfort for those needing a late night snack.
1.) Chocolate Cookies
The greatest and most popular midnight snack for anybody that wakes up with a sweet tooth. Chocolate cookies are always there for you when you don’t care about your health and only car about satisfaction. The sweet taste will make you feel like a child again and tell your body to relax and stop worrying about what you were thinking about. With an even combination with these cookies and milk, your night will feel just right.
What I Was Gonna Put.) Alcohol
Always a good choice when pulling an all-nighter for high-risk, high-reward, alcohol isn’t necessarily the best for going to sleep unless you consume a large amount of it. If you do plan on this, expect to be awake for a few hours regretting what you did. This combined with nicotine will determine how your night is going to go.
The new era of trash talking is here. It all started in the golden days of Halo 3 and Call of Duty. But now that the new era of video games is here, there are new ways that people have discovered to trash talk. This list is to show you how to win every single psychological battle with the other player(s).
5.) Ear Rape
The classic ear rape has been one of the most commonly used methods of trash talking in gaming history. “They can’t trash talk if they can’t hear themselves.” Is the philosophy behind this method. It is quite effective towards people that are clearly trying to shit talk your K/D. It is even more effective if you have an entire team use this strategy for the brief few seconds in between rounds. It does critical damage at all times but is mainly used during evening gaming.
4.) Playing Music On Your Phone
Test out your enemies music taste by blaring your favorite rap or country song into your headset. This tactic is highly effective in getting muted by your targets. When you get muted, that shows that you have shown dominance over your enemies and they are too scared to battle with you. This tactic is highly effective against grown men that can’t take a joke, which is over half of the whole gaming community.
People that have way too many numbers or X’s in their names are naturally bound to be more toxic or sweaty than others. So, the best way to approach and strike these players is to either trash talk their beloved name or come up with your own ridiculous name and become the thing you sought out to destroy. There are not many things that are more infuriating than getting killed by xXx_No0bK1llR_XxX repeatedly. So the solution is to destroy their self esteem by striking their creativity and decision making skills, or lack there of.
2.) Being On The Bottom Of The Team
When you are doing poorly in a match, there is nothing more entertaining than to trash talk the top player on the other team. This move is highly effective and predictable. When using this move, the person being trash-talked will always reply with the same argument that you gave, making him unoriginal and inferior to your supreme wits. This is a move that trumps many other strategies and destroys your enemies psychologically.
Honorable Mention.) Racism
The most commonly used way to aggravate anybody on the other team is to be highly racist toward them. People that were alive to be a part of the roaring modern racism movement of the late 2000s video games have grown to be immune to this method. But despite recent events in the world, this method has returned and is highly effective towards people that are clearly better than you at video games.
1.) Ole Reliable
The rarest and most effective method of trash talking is by using Ole Reliable. The least expected and most ear-pain inducing instrument when blared into a mic is the best method of demoralizing your opponents. This method is even more effective when more than one harmonica is being used. Completely throwing your enemies off-guard, this method almost always guarantees a win for your team.
Let’s just say that today while working at the water treatment plant, you had a run in with your boss’s ex-wife who happens to be your mom and while looking at her, you think to yourself, “I could really use some fucking pancakes right now.” So you quit your job and out of pure excitement, you speed to your nearest Denny’s at 2 A.M.
After hitting a fire hydrant and walking to your nearest Denny’s, you get seated almost immediately because the place is nearly empty. You look around to see what type of people you’ expect at a 2 A.M. Denny’s. Truckers, 2nd shift workers, theatre kids, and depressed military personnel. The cold air breezing in from outside makes you shiver because you’re still soaking wet from working all day. You get your menu from the semi attractive waitress and decide to yourself that you are going to get breakfast. So you go for the Lumberjack Slam and enjoy your meal. It fills your stomach with joy but it also doesn’t feel right at the same time.
You wake up to the sound of a pan hitting the floor. Mary looks over to you and says, “…Hello? Are you even listening?” You don’t agree and proceed to fillet the breakfast sausages that are laid out in front of you. Mary takes the tongs out of your hand so you take her hand and burn it off with the fryer grease. Screaming in pain, you both call the police. After calling the police, you realize that doing this was a dumb idea and you just now remembered that you forgot your car. So you break through the Wendy’s window and run out into the street searching for your car.
You are searching everywhere but you cannot find your car. The police sirens are starting to get louder and the lights are getting closer. In a frantic mad final dash, you hijack a person’s 2004 Toyota Highlander and gun it down 3rd Ave. After 20 minutes of searching, you find the car parked at your house where you left it. Now it is all starting to come back to you. You realized that you sell GHB to teenagers and you accidentally drugged yourself at Denny’s and you’re now waking up from your trip. So after bringing it all together, you calmly go back into your home and lie down in bed, after setting your alarm next to a burnt hand, you go to sleep ready for the day tomorrow.
