On a less crazy note, I had completely been ignoring the use of explosives in Fallout 3 until late last year. I didn't realize their true damage potential and thought of them as something annoying that I kept finding laying around.
It all began in Grayditch.
I was crawling through the Fire Ant invested Grayditch. The little jerks had flame breath, and remember that whole part in my last Fallout 3 post about not wasting ammo? Yeah. The ants made me waste ammo. A whole butt ton of it. Plus that whole getting burned thing.
|Plus Side: I could turn them against each other.|
I fought through two of the Nest Guardians and was looking through my backpack to see if there was some way I could kill them easily, especially since I decided I may as well waste everything. Then lo and behold, THE BOTTLE CAP MINE
I placed it down hesitantly and unsure of how it was going to work. Remember, this was my first time actually using explosives. I was alone, I was afraid, and I was getting a little hungry probably. I took quite a many steps back and waited. The Nest Guardian came around the corner, stepped right on the mine, AND WAS EXPLODED RIGHT TO THE CEILING! It was so beautiful. I loved it so much, I killed the other ants in just the same way, and even used the Fat Man on the Queen ant because I DON'T TAKE NO MONKEY BANANAS.
It was from then forth that whenever I have gotten in a super tight situation, I rely on my 'splodies to DESTROY THE WASTELAND FILTH Super mutants *cough* *cough*
Kind of like this:
I'd like to give some thanks to DystopianWonders for poking me with a stick. Go check her out if you like that book stuff. I hear it's all the rage! Somewhere. Possibly. *Shrug.*
I hope to get many more videos and posts to you guys soon enough. Keep checking back, and remember, people are like people-sized people. Ta~ta!
