    I figured out it was the manhole cover right after I almost got murdered by a pack of molerats in the bathroom

    I fucking love the
    ghoul mask.

    Just popped into Dupont Circle while trying to find Rivet City, and a horde of my rotting brethren followed me into epic battle against a swarm of raiders.

    So VATS is obviously for people who aren't good at aiming because it sucks up ammo and you can't use it at any good distance

    but shit, the camera following the bullet into the Super Mutant's cranium which then proceeds to explode is worth it

    VATS is great for dealing with motherfuckers up close

    assault rifle burst in the cranium, fuck yes

    also, how the hell do you get Power Armor training?

    Haha, is that the Capitol Building? I was just there.

    I like when you go to the meeting room or whatever, there's a copy of "Lying: Congressional Style" on the podium.

    so, how big is this game world?

    Like, compared to vvardenfell or cyrodil

    π

    I mean, I get that it's just a city and not an entire continent or whatever

    but still, it seems like there's a very large variance in encounters

    well

    in that case, how big is it compared to the californiarea of fallout 1 and 2

    It's pretty fucking big, I'd say. Maybe not as big as the surface area of Fallout 1 and 2, but there are certainly more points of interest.

    Its not just one big city. D.C. is roughly a quarter of the map, the rest is the surrounding open wasteland.

    It feels a little smaller to me than Cyrodiil, but there are more interesting locations sprinkled about. Its also kind of necessary since you don't have a horse to run around on.

    Yeah, Capitol Building. I can pretty much annihilate everything with my plasma rifle so I just ran through the whole thing and killed everyone. Too bad there weren't any big rewards, but I got plenty of ammo and stuff. And there was a behemoth.

    The map is 50km by 50km

    which is bigger than Oblivion's. I think that was Cyrodil right?

    Yeah, it was cyrodil.

    also:
    I was wandering around the western portion of the wasteland last night and accidentally found Dad. I was like, "Screw you Liam Neeson, you're staying right there until I find you on purpose!"

    Then I reloaded and left that vault.

    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.
