    I mean it's not even like Gulpers are some super-death engineered killing-machine like Wannamingoes or Deathclaws, gulpers are just an animal basically. It would be like Vault Tec releasing angry gorillas to exterminate surface dwellers.

    Ehhh, it's not quite that "The Division's central plot" easy. Not the least being those stone age morons not being anywhere near one another. You need a way to distribute the virus massively, vaccinate presumably the populations you want to keep alive (all vault-dwellers who are in "good vaults), and it to be 100% lethal but last long enough not to burn out.

    but yes, you're right. Gulpers are a silly means of genocide.

    To get this thread back on track with the show, here's a few videos between Creetosis, DWTerminator, and Enclave Emily about the show.

    I think we need to get a retcon discussion going at some point too. Compile all the things people are noticing along with ourselves. How Vault 33 is near the area where The Cathedral was, how cold fusion was already in the games via the GECK, how the idea for Vault 31 was copied from Vault 0 in Fallout: Tactics, etc.

    Didn't stop it from being the main big evil plot of the series twice already.

    If the intent with the gulpers was to be an anti-caveman bioweapon they would have said so. I assumed that was the point at first too, but Hawthorne merely says they were crossbreeding humans with radioactive resistant species.

    Isn't a major point that their plan is stupid and only because they're racists? I mean, wiping out ALL LIFE ON EARTH TO RULE THE ASHES is pretty much the OG idiocy of the biggest complaint about the Fallout series.

    Oh yes, in-universe they are trying to make better humans not Gulpers.

    But I admit I have always been trying to figure out reasons for fallout 4's idiotic Super Mutant plot with the Institute.

    That was one of my theories.

    I can't make that writing work, though

    I agreed with most of the people listed above but I wasn't a fan of Synth's take on Fallout show, the guy feels like the type of person who is too consumed in their beliefs, which is type of person I despise the most regardless of what side they are in.
