The Fall of Games: Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Video Series – Luck

 

As we come to the end of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video series we take a look at the most other worldly stat in Fallout: Luck. Now you people may not be superstitious in real life, but in the wasteland you’ll need all the help you can get and being lucky where it counts will save you. Think about it; an invisible hand helping you making better shots, find better loot, making the impossible possible. And since this is Fallout you can run with it with wild and crazy elements including fan fav Mysterious Stranger.  Sadly no matter how high you put luck it doesn’t break the game in your favor; you’ll still die, get crap gear, and say the wrong thing to the wrong bandit lord from time to time. However if you hate life and want a  hardcore run of Fallout 4 then by all mean reduce luck to 1.  You’ll be beating of the yao guai with the stick in no time – seriously because you’ll won’t be able to find any good weapons with a 1 in luck. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

 

 

 

Gameroween 2015: Video Game Characters that make good costumes (Dog from Half Life 2)

Dog

You know people I played Half Life 1 and 2, it was a good experience and told a good enough story but I don’t have the almost zealous fervor many of the fans seem to have for this two game series (count the DLC episodes as part of HL2). While it will be a shame if the now urban legend of a sequel, Half Life 3, never comes out I wouldn’t say it will break gaming without its presence either. That being said we can keep the memory of Half Life alive with Costume choices this year. Sure you can pick Gordon Freeman or the best CPU co-op character ever Alyx, however for my choice I would recommend Dog the robotic juggernaut. One: robots are awesome (when they’re not trying to kill you), two: Dog is a bipedal, almost gorilla like robot with super strength and Zero Point Energy device that allows him to grab almost anything, and three: like his namesake he acts likes a loyal dog – short of barking (I think).   So it obvious why you should become Dog today as Half Life fan; however you’ll get bonus points for the complete set. If you’re a couple one dresses as Gordon, another like Alyx, and the pet as Dog; less points if your pet is not an actual Dog but still awesome none the less.
