Here's the way I described it. The Nookcolor is the bastard child of the iPad and the Kindle.  It's a sub-par iPad and an overdone, bloated eReader.  It's a Jack of all trades and a master of none.
 
Personally, I'd still rather have the Kindle.  If I'm going to go after an eReader that does "apps" why not just spend the extra money and get one that does it right?
 
Also, you can still pirate books on the Kindle.  It's a lot tougher to do so, but it can be done.

@sammo21: According to the timeline, there was a reactor that almost went critical in New York.  That would be a cool setting, if they did it right, but even still this wouldn't work as a pre-war game.

@owl_of_minerva: Having grown up in the Atari 2600 era, those are easy cannon fodder for my distaste, but I'm more so speaking on early-90's era games.  You're right.  The cookie cutter side scrollers of the 16-bit era are painful to go back and play.  I can always go back and play A Link to the Past, or Earthbound, or something like that, but it's tough on some of the less in-depth games.

" Maybe they could do some weird flashback sequence, like put the tutorial in pre-war soldier training or something. But for a full game? Hell no, the whole point of Fallout is the post-apocalyptic setting. "
Sort of like the did with the Operation: Anchorage DLC?

@Tennmuerti: Sadly, I feel this way even when I'm not swamped with games.  The old games just don't seem to hold up as well as I thought they would or hoped, I guess.

Maybe the trick that fixes the end of this quest will work for the regular Nightkin?  Just go some place safe and "Wait" for 24 hours?

@Venatio: I doubt they're really be able to make a good game about the events leading up to Fallout.  Plus, there was a lot of time that passed between the events of Fallout, and when the war began, so there'd be a ton of disconnect.
 
I don't know, just seems to me like it would be a generic war shooter at that point.
