My Texts from Fallout 4 (NSFW)

I willingly admit I am not good with FPS (first person shooter for the uninitiated).  The first time I tried to play Halo I shrieked and tossed the controller sideways when an alien popped up in my vision.  I have gotten better at it.  I learned how to operate the look control separately from the walk control.  Learned how to aim better.  Learned to shoot while backing away from the thing coming at me, or strafe, or simply turn tail and run.  But it’s still not really my style of gameplay.  I much prefer third person with the camera backed out so I can see what my character is doing.  And I also tend to prefer non realistic weapons or magic if you got it.  But despite all of that, I got curious about a game. A game with a cutie cartoon mascot and a post-apocalyptic world: Fallout 4


This is not a game for the kids.  Nor is it a game to play when the kids are around.  I’m not even sure I should be playing it.   I definitely yelped, jumped, and what have you as I played it in my house…alone…in the daytime…on a dark, grey, winter’s day….  

These are the texts I sent my husband yesterday on my second day with the game.  The game is eerily set in my hometown area. 

  • I just discovered Walden Pond.
  • I am so fucking lost.  I just found Lexington.
  • And I just screamed out loud.
  • No no no no
  • This game is terrifying.
  • I’m lost.  I don’t know how to get home to my good armor suit thing.
  • Corpses chased me. 
  • I am being a total chicken and waiting for the storm to end and the sun to come out before I go after new enemies.
  • Fuck I just got bombed.
  • Got an achievement for that too.  “Touchdown.”

Today I found my map function.  Looks like I’ll keep trying to make my way to Fenway, or as it’s called in Nuka Cola world, Diamond City.
