    In Which Kimberly Grows Up in Vault 101

    Y’all. Y’all. I actually started playing a game tonight that wasn’t either Skyrim or Elder Scrolls Online! GASP!

    Specifically, I started a Fallout 3 run. I’ve actually owned Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas for a while, I just haven’t gotten around to trying to play either of them. But my household has started watching the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, and we’re enjoying quite a bit.

    In fact, it’s inspired Paul to break out his XBOX 360 for the first time in eight years and start a new Fallout 3 run of his own. This was not as easy as you might think–because that machine was old and cantankerous, and its disc reader had stopped working! Paul had to order a new laser part for that reader, and do surgery on the console to get that installed and working. During all of this, he also wound up blowing away all his old save data. And he just started fresh with a brand new game.

    At the same time, I was thinking it was high time I actually tried it out on the Steam Deck. So I finally installed it, and then did a bit of work to plug it into my existing Vortex install. My thought here was to do something similar to my Oblivion setup, where I’m running as close to vanilla as possible, with only bugfix mods.

    More deets behind the fold.
