Well, when one creates a black man with a purple hair-do and green eyes, or an Asian gal that's COMPLETELY fucked in the facial department (my little brother's profile)... you just run with it.

Starting today and going on for any number of Mondays (until completion), I'll be telling y'all of my grand adventures through the (ultimate) wasteland of the Mojave desert in Fallout: New Vegas as told only in the way a patient wayfarer would. Please note this is only a semi-serious initial play-through, so please be calm and realize the elements of humor present in here as you come across them. Enjoy!

The Doc's Place

Waking up after from being left for dead, I discover a whole bunch of crap in my sack that wasn't there when I started that job. A sturdy over-under shotgun, a wathered-looking sidearm, and a grenade launcher, amongst other things lie with my usual medical supplies and trusty canteen. Upon gaining some form of consiousness I look over at the man who was caring for me. He adressed himself as Doc Mitchell and asked me my name. I answered with my name- simply Gabe Monroe. I wanted to slap the living shit out of him for deriding my parents' choice of name, but that'd be contrary to my current situation. He had to go muddling around in my head for a bit to get all the lead out of he, so he handed me a mirror so I could examine myself to make sure nothing was out of place. Sure enough, everything was in place- my beautiful black skin, my dazzling green eyes, my purple Sarge haircut and survivalist beard, everything about my manhood was in order. All the doc could say was that "everything that mattered was in order". I REALLY wanted to slap the shit out of him. After helping me up, he took over to some "vigor-matic" thing and had me test my skillset real quick. Turns out I perform real well after being shot in the head, but something in the back of my mind... you get the point. He then sat me down for a quick psychiatric evaluation and found that I'm plenty good with guns, technological stuff and speaking. Pretty accurate, I'd say- first time all day I didn't want to slap the hell out of him. Before we were done, he wanted to get a quick medical history from me so he wouldn't assume I had a family history of being shot in the head. Racist bastard. In exchange for that, I thanked him for healing me up... and took him for his guns, ammo, medical supplies and other assorterd sundries.

Back On My Feet

Afterwards, I strolled on out of the place and headed out into the bright midday sun and wandered around for a bit. I wandered into a nearby schoolhouse to see what they were teaching the kids these days out here... turns out it isn't much, since the place was abandoned, save for the little green bastard bugs wandering around in there. Wandering around a little bit more, I come across the 'bot that saved my hide. Don't know why he's called Victor, don't care. All I know is this- he/it saved my hide and got Doc Mitchell to heal me up good. After walking into the bar and (nearly) getting mauled by a husky (why does that ALWAYS happen to me?), I get greeted kindly by Sunny Smiles. She's fine... for a white girl, I'll admit she's DAMN fine. She took me out back and gave me a shit rifle to play around with for a bit. She showed me around a bit and gave me a few caps for taking care of some geckos for her. Hell, she even taught me out to make some healing powder from a couple of simple plants found out here in the wasteland! We headed back into town towards the bar.

Shit Heats Up A Bit

Walking into the bar, I see a man arguing with a woman in front of the drinking portion of the bar. Turns out the woman is Trudy (the owner of this fine establishment), and the man was a scumbag "Powder Ganger" by the name of Joe Cobb. Turns out he's after a man by the name of Ringo. After speaking with Ringo (who is in hiding), I've managed to enlist Sunny and Trudy to help him and myself against the powder gangers. Just need to get an old codger by the name of Easy Pete and the General Store owner named Chet. Things are starting to get a bit more interesting now.

Well, that's it for today. I'll have more when I continue this fine adventure later on. Thanks for reading!

And no mention of the Red Faction franchise... assholes decided to NOT include the ever-present notion of oppression in Armageddon, so why continue it from there? It's unfortunately dead in the water.

Hardly anything for "The Adventures of Tintin", though.

Obama has had to deal with the fallout the Bush administration caused. I admit he did not deliver the amount of "change" he advertised, but its hard to get new things done when you have to clean up after the last guy

Actually, his "change" was that of a downward spiral. Look at the facts- he turned down the biggest job offer in recent memory because he felt "rushed" into it, as opposed to buying into something failing as badly as Gizmondo. Looking at JUST THESE TWO, who would you say is the worse of the two?

The issue with Keystone is the jobs are only temporary and the potential environmental damage isn't worth temporary jobs.

Environmentalists and their crystal balls. "This or that may happen so lets not do it!" Its a load of horse shit. If building this pipeline would cut out or dependence on Venezuelan oil (which it would) would not only lower the price per barrel drastically, but also weaken a not so nice nation. If it takes drilling right through a fucking caribou to get that, I'm all for it. Why? Cause fuck a caribou. True the jobs may be temporary, but what construction job lasts forever? It would help several states get some guys back to work. Not like Obamas "lending" of 25 million to save 16 jobs and create 30 some odd new ones with some experminetal biofuel company. Get the pipeline in now, work on the biofuels later. Cause right now most Americans care hurting at the pump.

Besides, these biofuels may actually cause more harm to the environment than the supporters say.

Thank you Alex for being awesome.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Why did you do that? I don't want to see or hear anything about Mirai Nikki, that's poison for me.

But the yandere is calling out to you... OBEY!!!!!!

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: I'm sorry, but that image is totally lost on me.

Also, I appreciate you doing work at 1AM, Alex. 'Specially when Candyman is involved.

Ever heard of the term 'yandere'?

Personally, I like how the first one perfectly blends all of the above to deliver a horror title not seen since the OG Silent Hill. The second one got just a ~tad~ more action-y, but still delivered on the rest of the list.

Hmm... to those spreading the rumors-
