Out of the Blue

Forgetting the birthday of a loved one will usually cause big-time backlash. Luckily for me the forgotten occasion in this case was the Gunnar-man, and it seems dogs don't keep careful enough track of these things to cause hurt feelings. Gunnar was born four years ago on the day of the 2004 presidential election, so our excuse for the oversight is this year's election. On the bright side, the Devicers have recently rescued a new puppy (they're pretty sure it is a Great Dane, of all things!), and so Gunnar, Hudson the wonder dog, and I are going to head up there for a play date, which is a better present than anything I could have thought up for the little monster, who cannot get enough of horseplay, or dogplay, as it were.

Just found the most absurd bug in Fallout 3. Was fighting a Mutant Behemoth and decided to take a few shots at his skull with my Victory Rifle, which has the uncanny ability to splay enemies upon their backs (including this Behemoth). So I VATS it up and fire one into his frontal lobe and he's sent sprawling onto the ground, no big deal. Then as he's getting up I put two more into his head... and he is rocketed no less than 200 feet into the air. He comes flying back down like giant meteor but doesn't take any falling damage. Then I did the same thing x_x

As far as bugs go, this was definitely one of the most hilarious ones I've seen in a while. Was like something out of Garry's Mod.

The Victory Rifle effectively breaks the game:

Upon Critical hits the rifle will stun most enemies for 5 seconds.

I don't know what exactly "most enemies" entails, but if it includes Mutant Behemoths something is very wrong.

Isn't it about time to take the vote logo down?
