A vault with novelty board games that look really interesting but really really aren't

heh that reminds me, I was surprised to see this today at a game store. good opportunity to share.

perhaps they could have this in the vault, and every mistake would fatally activate an implant on some random vault dweller.

I remember the Vault Tech Workshop Add-on for FO4 let you do something similar to this. Did anyone mess around with that?

Well my idea for a vault would be one where little things would change each day ie: Furniture would be moved, doors would stop opening, signs would change what they said, clocks and calendars would change, maybe even the dwellers stuff would be moved while they were sleeping. The goal being to drive them to madness, unsure of what is reality or not.

For me, it was probably when I met my lady.

Let's see, I'm 33 now.  16 years ago, at some dumb party, I met a lady. We, uhm.  We acted like teenagers.  We made love and we yelled at each other and she became determined to never speak to me again.  I don't blame her.

A decade later, we encountered each other again.

Uhm.  Some other stuff happened.  For some reason, we're now together.  Long story short, I am with a lady that I am pretty enthusiastic about, and we met each other 16 years ago for no reason.  Just random chance.  That being said said, as loathe as I am to admit that I have emotions, I don't know.  I guess you can't deny them.  Now, with her permission, 16 years later, I'll never fucking let her go. 

So yeah.  The first moment I saw my lady.

Thanks again for stopping by and contributing Than. I wish I could randomly drop by, be the center of attention, and disappear again like you. If you see this, let us know how you encountered each other again because you are kind of a dick about giving up details.


Getting a little Personal here, but my moment was at the end of high school/right after it.

There was of course a girl who was probably the first person to genuinely like me. In short I ended up messing up the whole thing and we went our own way. I felt sick and afterwards I became less capable of showing my emotions to people and became a bit of a robot.

Thanks for sharing. I think almost every guy goes through that after highschool (at least I did), its a transitioning period for sure. In a few years though you'll probably kick yourself for getting hung up on it. At 26, I can't comprehend how some people get into relationships in high school and stay in them. Apparently some people do.

Another short story. When I was 14, I was failing middle school. I just didn't understand or care about school. My mother sat down with me and cried hard because she wasn't sure what to do with me. That was the first time I realized that how I took care of myself could effect other people emotionally. I promised her I would improve, and I did. I ended being on honor roll through high school and college.

This is pretty silly, but when I was 7 years old I went to one of those church carnivals, and they had that "guess the beans in the jar" game. I guessed either exactly or within 1 or 2 (although I think exactly) and won. For years after I thought I was psychic or something.

For most of our lives, time seems monotonous. We get used to things, get into habit and feel a sameness. Sometimes we try to mix things up, travel, try new things to expand our lives. But sometimes a single event, even a single second, out of your control can shatter everything that made you comfortable. A car accident, meeting your future love, winning the lottery, getting a job offer. These can change everything we thought we knew.

What is a moment that had a profound change in your life and why?

With the awful past couple of years we've had for games, 2017 is shaping up to be quite a fantastic one! Many new games coming out this fall, I surely won't have the time or motivation to play them all. Still dreaming about getting a Switch for that Zelda and Mario goodness.

For some reason I remember there being an earlier FO board game, perhaps based on FO3, though I may be wrong.

I played miniatures board games as a teenager Mage Knights and Hero Clixs etc but they became an expensive hobby. I remember someone dropping $100 at once on a dozen packs of figures only to get nothing good. That was a lot of money as a 13 year old kid!

Always saw Warhammer as a more expensive elitist type of game.

Technically, there is one, but on one has posted in it since 2010 so take that for what you will. Just search "unwashed villagers".

I'd join an anti-Facebook group.

I've actually been thinking about this lately. About how Facebook sucks now. Largely by killing off other social media websites, and adding features to compete with mobile apps, they've really lost their identity. What began as a website for college students to find friends/partys/girls at their college has become a monster trying to offer everything to everyone. Now you can even make phone calls and live video stream through Facebook, and the founder is considering a Presidential run. Its kinda insane.

For the record, I was totally kidding. Gaming will be a part of my life presumably for a long time, marriage won't really change that because my partner will accept the things i'm passionate about. But I do think and hope that when I settle down, that I'll find meaning in other things and playing games will have less significance. In a way I've been getting slightly bored of gaming lately anyway.



It's "masturbate". Masterbate makes me think of someone who's really skilled at holding their breath.

Binding of Issac: Rebirth. I've always liked roguelikes, they're like if you combined a D&D dungeon and let a computer AI go LARPING. Its not really a roguelike, but about the closest that most people can enjoy.

Finished Dark Souls 3. I basically hate the game, and never want to play the series again. Not because its hard, but because its frustrating for bad reasons. Sad to say that, because some parts were actually fun.

Theres a few games I feel I need to play soon too. Deus EX: Mankind Divided, Zelda: Breath of Wild, DOOM.

Boy, life is really going to suck when I get married and have kids and a career.

Later on, she would accept full responsibility for her loss, and then in the same breath, blame Comey.
I fucking saw that too! And I about lost my shit when she said "If the election had been held on October 27, I'd be your president" The arrogance of that fucking woman! Even if Comey had influenced enough people past the tipping point to cost her the election, theres no way to fucking prove things would be different. She's not some inter-dimensional time traveler. Its just a rather pathetic coping mechanism to justify what she was overly confident would happen, but didn't.

 My dad always used to say "don't use shoulda/coulda/woulda and just accept the results of your actions". Instead of admitting "Our message wasn't very good, and my campaign focused too narrowly on population centers. Trump obviously had more support across broader areas." its blaming Russia, Comey, and now even the DNC. Its pretty scary, and i'm thankful things happened the way they did. I earnestly think the election results may have been influenced by God, and what was meant to happen did.

Thats not an argument as to what he's done thats bad. I doubt he will ever be impeached, he's smart enough to flirt with the line without giving enough justification to actually be impeached.

The WH website is far from the only website to be behind in updates. Plus, it says "...when the data becomes available from the Administration." Maybe it hasn't become available yet because its only been 5 months?

I'm pretty happy with how things have gone so far, and the more time goes by the more I don't see how the election could have gone any other way. Like last week when Clinton said "If the election had been on October 27th I would be your President". The arrogance of her.

I can't stand most political comedians on TV. Many of them use groupthink tactics to push liberal propaganda. Edit: Not to say that conservative commentators aren't just as guilty

   This week I finish the last of my college coursework, for my Bachelors in International Business. The graduation is this Sunday, which I won't be attending (partly because I don't care, partly because its Mother's Day). College has been a long journey for me. Originally, I went to school for Architecture, not really prepared for the intensity or demands. I had never drafted before, haha. The long, lonely nights working in our studio, which was an old supposedly-haunted mansion (http://info.umkc.edu/unews/campus-history-epperson-house/) are times I'll never forget. Moving to another city helped me grow socially and be more responsible. Leaving was a tough heartbreaking decision, I don't like to give up on things, but I wasn't cut for it. I remember it clearly. It was move out day, I had already dropped my major, but was planning to stay at the school. I went to the bookstore to sell my books, ran into my ex (who I still loved and respected) and chatted for a while. I decided that was a sign not to return. I went back and cleared my room, told roommate I was not coming back, and left with a friend.

   I surprised my parents with an "I'm staying!". I took almost 3 years off, working some crappy jobs, knowing I would finish at some point. Eventually, I went to community college for a semester and pretty much hated it. I came to my current University (where my mother also graduated from) in Fall of 2014. I choose my major because I saw that almost everything sold in the U.S. was made in China, shipped across the world, and I wanted to know why and how (and how to stop it). I can't stay I liked my University much but i'm glad to be done. MBA is a consideration only if my employer will help pay the cost, and I know if it will leader to promotions.

   If anyone reading this is about to start college, here's what I have to say. Make it quick and intensive. Get done in 4 or 5 years (Summer school is great. Also CC sucks don't go) even if you change your major, which many people do. Get involved, meet many people and don't work a job unless you have to. Wander the campus. Consider the culture, it will hugely influence the attitudes of staff and students. Your early 20s are a special time when you have responsibilities but can make mistakes; Use this time to further your education and grow yourself. If all you care about is getting a job afterwards, go to a trade school. I think college is supposed to show you that life can be more than "work, eat, sleep die" which is worth the money. Good luck.
