Playawaste Raiders FTW

Last night while working on the designs I just googled “fallout 3” (despite being the first kid on my block to own a Nintendo, I don’t like video games) again and poked around. Several sites I can’t get to, now that I’m at work, but here’s a few choice links.

10 Ways that Fallout 3 is like Burning Man

I’m digging the retro/post-apocolypse mash-up. It suites me. Didja know,

“On July 4, 2008, Fallout 3 was refused classification by the OFLC in Australia, thus making it illegal to distribute or purchase the game in the country. In order for the game to be reclassified, the offending content in the Australian version of the game would have had to be removed by Bethesda Softworks and the game resubmitted to the OFLC. According to the OFLC board report, the game was refused classification due to the “realistic visual representations of drugs and their delivery method [bringing] the ‘science-fiction’ drugs in line with ‘real-world’ drugs.”

This, this cosplay I could get into.

“Nuka-Cola Recipe
1/3rds Cream Soda
1/3rds Coca-Cola
1/3rds Mountain Dew(or any other caffienated drink you like)

Mix it in bottle, slap on the sticker, viola! NUKA-COLA!

Nuka-Cola Quantum Recipe
Two drops of Blue food Coloring
Two drops of Red food Coloring
One Foosh “Seriously Caffeinated” Mint
1/3rds Sprite
1/3rds Mountain Dew
1/3rds Squirt! soda”

I might make some Nuka-Cola cap necklaces for people, using the template in this tutorial:

Download the sdtks to the first two games.

Volpin Props has a “Fallout 3 AER9 Laser Rifle.”

A few songs from the sdtk

Or you can make your own helmet.

Or food labels.

All my thanks to my bookmark Superpunch, where I found most of these. (click for link to Pip Boy-o-Rama). Remember kids, only you can prevent human flesh fires!
