    Maybe something like the Beam Saber from No More Heroes?

    Come on, the simulation opens a vault and only you can do it?
    I've seen porn plots with more depth than that.

    You can't tell me that someone spent more than 2 minutes coming up with that.

    More like they came up with this totally K00L idea and worked ass-backwards from there with some flimsy fucking excuse to justify PEW PEW lasers. Fuck off.


    You need to be ashamed of yourself as a Fallout/RPG fan if you buy this shit.

    While I like the design of the armor, the "only you can enter" simulation is bullshit.

    Not surprised though.

    Guess it requires a pip boy then. Despite having advanced tech neither the Enclave or Brotherhood seem to be able to hack past barriers in their way. Enclave can't start a water purifier that requires a 4 digit code on their own and the Outcasts can't get past a door despite having a smeg load of explosives.
    I'm sensing a pattern here. No wonder everything is so backward in the capital wastes, it's full of wazzoks.

    200 years of inbreeding finally taking its toll on Vault Dwellers, BoS, and Enclave alike.

    Are you the official judge of what Fallout is? Because I thought you were just some fan of Conan and Fallout on the Internet. Don't tell me what to think.

    If I come off as a Bethesda defender, I'm not. I know that Fallout 3 is a faint ember compared to the sun that is Fallout. Doesn't mean I can't have fun with it. Kind of like Tactics, a game that isn't as good as Fallout 1 but fun to play.

    The pointless bickering of people with small penises. Just kidding.

    Apparently even Mr. computerman president wasn't advanced enough to crack that oh-so-difficult code. They should've brought in Marvin the paranoid android.

    Am I the only one thinking of the "Dark Brotherhood Assassins" circa Morrowind:Tribunal by looking at this picture?

    Actually, I was thinking "Is that Mass Effect?"

    I also noticed that the trees in Alaska look a lot like the trees in post-apocalyptic DC.

    Good to see they've finally overcome their denial and aren't even bothering to pretend they're adhering to the setting anymore. That armor - as already pointed out - is lifted straight out of a Metal Gear Solid game. Yes, it looks cool. No, it's not even remotely setting-appropriate.

    I would also agree that the story sounds almost impossibly contrived. Like the sort of contrived that requires a conscious effort to achieve.

    I agree that the suit look like it's been ripped of from Metal Gear, whether it's from VB or not. Specifically, it looks like an all-black version of Grey Fox/Cyber-ninja... they even included a sword. Even if it wasn't a ripoff, it's definately the product of 21st century futurism, not mid-20th.

    I find the sword to be pointless and there for "OMG SWORDZ!!111" effect.

    Why? You can already max out by level 20, what possible point is there to adding an additional 10 levels? Have they upped all of the skills to having a max value of 200 and rebalanced the system? Or do they just want to make sure that even the worst character build can be maxed out with ease?
