Someone was nice enough to leave me plans for a foosball table, so now my s*+~ty little shack has a foosball table.
In addition to my throne.
Also, I found the shelter registration robot so now I have a Fallout Shelter, but because my time playing video games is limited I completely skipped the tutorial so I have no idea whatsoever on how to decorate or furnish it, so it's just a big empty room.
The last time I tried being diplomatic and negotiated with the d~%%$eads plaguing The Wayward, and then I agreed to give them half of the treasure and then they decided they wanted it all and I had to kill them anyway.
This time I just went in full rampage and murdered them all without any negotiation and tagged their wall.
I actually murdered nearly everyone in the Pack's base when I properly guessed the trajectory of my mininuke and launched it at the leader without even bringing up VATS.
But yes the a&@&+&&s in suits are The Worst. Fortunately, I had plenty of grenades so I'd just sit behind the ice machine popping psycho and stimpaks tossing grenades or periodically shooting blind with my explosive 10mm.
It still took me a couple of tries to do it without dying.
I finally have all the star cores installed except for the last one in the power plant, which is next on my agenda.
The bottling plant was a pain in the ass, what with angry nukalurks and rampaging robots scattered liberally inside and somewhere around 10 nukalurk kings squatting on the grounds and it turns out Grognak's Axe isn't it's usual devastating self against the hard carapace of the nukalurks. Fortunately my shotgun was, or more specifically I can target their face with my shotgun.
Thankfully I was on the roof when big momma nukalurk made her entrance in the cess pool behind the factory. As soon as she burst though the muck I launched a mininuke right in her face and that was the end of her.
I found enough star cores to shut down the automated defenses, now I just have to find the other fifteen to get the power armor.
Unfortunately it froze up right after I outfitted my current power armor with explosive feet for my super hero landings. Which will come in handy when I have to murder everyone.
So I'll have to wait until later to start my star core collecting rampage (with assistance from Fallout Wiki).
So, I started anew! I decided I'd finally get further into the main story than I had, which was rampaging against the courser.
This time I decided to go with high strength and intelligence with an emphasis on modding the s~%# out of my armor and weapons.
Originally I was going to focus on big guns and explosives (which was the style at the time) however due to loot and circumstances I ended up going with a melee weapon (Grognak's Axe is my spirit guide), shotgun, and explosives build while modding the s#*% out of my weapons and armor (my power armor will have a jetpack or the Commonwealth will be bathed in my vengeance).
I'm also forgoing settlement building almost entirely and never even triggered the workshop at Sanctuary Hills and instead I established the Red Rocket as my main base. I also haven't talked to the minutemen since I bailed them out at Concord and they left for Sanctuary Hills (which I have been back to).
It turns out, the kid I was looking for was an old man with a cushy job I could mooch off of until I can get his social security number, and the railroad are actually pretty cool. Unfortunately for both of them, Nuka World beckoned.
I played for about an hour before dinner this evening. I made it across the bridge. In fairness, it's a long bridge, there was a lot of ghouls and I'd just found a Chinese officer's sword.
Kudos to technology for having graphics that are so good they trigger my fear of heights, or maybe it was because I was afraid of respawning back on the other side of the bridge.
I raised my perception up to 4 and put my other perks in hacking and lockpicking.
For whatever reason the Deathclaw in Concord wiped the streets with me (literally). Garvey didn't do s!#! from his balcony (seriously, laser muskets are the most useless weapon in the history of video games) I had to rely on raiders to soak up some damage and actually hit it with their guns.
I think when I start up again (I gots to shave) I'm going to see what happens when I shoot Garvey in the f##&ing face.

Can you launch a mininuke far enough to annihilate a charging horde of super mutants without also annihilating yourself?
I'm going with a high strength and charisma, low intelligence character named Rocko, it's actually going a lot better than I thought it would, as I can talk my way out of pretty much every situation.
I'm super disappointed at how little the lady killer perk comes up in dialogue.
Here i was, planning to double entendre my way across the Commonwealth, and so far, zilch!
Then he decides to follow us to Billy's house and wants to buy the whole f~$@ing family! What part of "I'm not a piece of s#$~" don't you understand? Is it the part with the missiles, or the part where I rip your spine out with my Lovecraft dagger? Cause, either one of those don't seem worth trafficking in ghouls.
At any rate, Bullet is dead, on account of the missiles, his little gang of gunners are scattered in pieces across a large swath of swampland and little Billy and his family are safe, for now.
So, I'm on this rooftop and I notice a group of rust devils trying to get the drop on me, of course they weren't being subtle so I took them out. Then when I jump down to loot the debris and body parts some kid yells at me to let him out, and then wants me walk him home, which is fortunate because I hadn't rampaged in that direction yet, and the rust devil sentry had ten extra missiles! Yay! Gunner ruins!! Now I know where I can put those extra missiles! Now some guy named Bullet, or Eddie or whatever wants to buy Billy off of me, not gonna happen there dickwad!

Okay... So, as you know, I wiped out the raiders, well I found the power plant and I remembered how turning the power back on would be the beezneez! So I climb to the top, killing ghouls as I went and successfully turned the power on, unfortunately it took me all night to get up there so when the fireworks went off it was kind of lost in the daylight.
Anyway, as you can imagine I had a s#+$ load of loot to pawn, so I went to the Nuka World Market and what should I find. The traders successfully shed their collars! Yay! And they stripped down to their underwear!... What?!... Yup, all the traders are now going without clothing.
I... I don't understand it, but I applaud their newfound sense of freedom!
I had decided to let the raiders settle Nuka World, I even planted their flags. Then Gage started going off on pillaging the settlements in the Commonwealth, and I'm like "Dude, I started those settlements!".
Now my power armor is trashed and I'm all out of mininukes, missiles, grenades, mines, and shotgun shells.
But there's no more raiders and I still have Kremvh's Tooth! Precious, precious Kremvh's Tooth...
I'm currently level 37-39 and have focused on modifying weapons and armor, with my weapon focus being heavy weapons, and guns, all the guns, except lasers.
I usually hang with ADA, mostly because she can carry so much junk.
I also finally took the time to meet the other gang leaders, I wasn't impressed, I think eventually murdering them all is the way to go. I'm definitely not letting them move in with Timmy and his gorilla family.
So, l met this doctor in the Nuka World market (which I just found) and she was all "If you take down the leaders of the various gangs the rest will run away.
So I took out Mags and her dick brother but then ALL the raiders tried killing me.
That b+%$+ set me up!
This is something that I'm going to need a lot of ammo for.
Goes looking for a previous save.
Took care of Red River Gulch, or whatever it's called, with all the bloodworms (they should call them yawnworms because with a VATS enhanced super mega shotgun that's what they were, boring).
Rather then fetch a bunch of s*~# for a bunch of redneck robots I just destroyed them all (except the sheriff, though I did try a few times) and took their combination.
Now I'm helping Toto and his parents reclaim Safari Adventures, but not before stocking up on some more missiles, I have a feeling 23 just won't be enough.
