When people play role playing games, they often role play as what 'they' would do, or some non-specific entity.
When I play Fallout New Vegas however, I play as an actual character. Or at least this time I am...
Meet my new character, Courier Extraodinaire Sarah Palin.
Luck: 8Whaddaya mean now that ya missed a spot? That's free health care for ya...What a ridiculous question!Only one answer really...
Uh oh... the Low Intelligence might be starting to show already...
Engaging in the ol' chase me through a door and into a frag mine routine. Kinda smart for her, but then again, Sarah Palin is a hunter.
Sarah Palin has a solution to prison overcrowding. (and her Black Widow perk is already paying dividends)You were a Powder Ganger... now you're just powder... yeah...Buck up or stay in the truck!Uh huhDeputy Beagle earns the special helmet so he won't hurt himself.
So.... that's it for now. I'm hoping to engage in a pictorial based saga of my journey, reacting to the world as Sarah Palin would. Or how the public perception of her would anyways.
As far as the game is concerned, I chose only one perk, Good Natured, and three tag skills, Energy Weapons (I've been through two playthroughs with Small Guns and its boring now), Speech (obviously) and Medicine. (It was the only Housewife based trait of the bunch) So far, she's helped Goodsprings defeat the Powder Gangers terrorizing the town, and made friends with everyone. Sarah Palin however, isn't much of a scavenger and so she doesn't go rifling through everyones house, grabbing things that can be grabbed without karma penalties. That's just unrealistic. So unless it's from villains or their possessions or otherwise unclaimed, she's not taking it. It'd be wrong. Then she paid her respects at the Yangtze Memorial before heading up to Sloane... more to get the marker down then anything, before following the railroad back down to the NCR Correctional Facility and then down to Primm, in hot pursuit of that fancily dressed fellow and his Khan-esque cohorts. While in Primm, as you can see, she saved the Deputy and killed all of the Powder Gangers there. Lest we forget. Support our troops!
Now she's currently heading South, to get a pardon for Meyers so he can become the Sheriff for Primm, because she knows the current one is too cowardly and a fancy robot as a Sheriff? C'mon now...Meyers should be the Sheriff... why?!!!Small Town Values!!!!!!Tough On Crime!!!
!!!End Federal Bureaucracy!!!
Well there you have it so far... Hour One of Fallout New Vegas as Sarah Palin.
If anyone has any feedback, suggestions, recommendations that this is a waste of time, please feel free to share. I'm not actually sure how amusing this all actually is.
