Crap!

I know what I'll do though. I'll enter the area at a lower level, then come back when I hit fifty with T51-B power armor and the special super sledge.

Yeah no, This thing is a god.

You better be packing super stimpacks and everything, cause seriously, he will kill you.

It has the most HP out of any enemy in the game, and it hits twice as hard as a normal death claw, sir.

It's probably not in the games, but it's probably information from the Fallout Bible.

Welp, while I may not being playing Fallout much anymore, I have been working on Bioshock 2 for the PS3. I have to say, I liked the first one much better, but still, this is a pretty good game. One again, I come to find all those wonderful little power ups are fun to experiment with, especially Pyrokenisis! (Maybe I have a little -too- much fun with fire  :P). Ah, Little Sisters...once you get over those large yellow eyes and that warped/demonic voice their sporting they're actually kinda' cute! Harvesting them just isn't in my heart...don't get me wrong! I'd love to have more Adam but those little faces and their calling me 'Daddy' just melts this tin-man's heart. Love those Little Sisters...

Those Big Sisters...*shivers*

Wow, the legality of that is questionable. Seriously, you might refuse someone service for being a jackass, but I've never heard of being charged more for it.

Deathclaws... mimic human speech? Since when? o.O

In Fallout 2 the intelligent Deathclaws were able to "speak", but lacking human vocal cords they did so by mimicking human speech in the way a parrot does. The vast majority of Deathclaws don't have the intelligence to do this and the canon ending for Fallout 2 (as things stand for now and expanded on slightly below) is that all of the intelligent Deathclaws were wiped out by the Enclave by the end of Fallout 2.

A direct quote from Chris Avellone on the subject:

"BTW, the talking deathclaws were destroyed at the end of Fallout 2. Xarn and Goris did not go on to create a new species. They are gone. Kaput. Goodbye. In fact, any mutant animal that talks can safely be assumed to have died at the end at the exact minute that Fallout 2 was over."

It is advised to have the 'And Stay Back' Perk coupled with your highest capacity and fastest shooting shotgun to take down a deathclaw.

However, I also use the Anti-Matter rifle in the middle of maxed out stealth from a vantage point that the deathclaw AI cannot reach... most of the time. Shoot a leg on each 'claw and they won't reach you.

5 hours playing a game is nothing.

Try playing 24 hours with only 30 minute breaks to eat 3 meals and 5-10 minute breaks to use the bathroom.

Then we'll talk. ;D

This is the kind of behavior that makes people think that all video-game players are antisocial wackos, you know? It's not true though. We're antisocial because we're tired of other people stealing all the food for our wizards. D:

Depends on the game.  I spent many an hour entertaining the little Oni with a silly purple dragon.

I got L.A. Noir today. I like it a lot. It's not as movie-ish as people make it out to be. It's just a little more cerebral than, "Jack nearest car, run over as many people as possible before stunt diving out of it so it becomes one large missile you ramped to take out a police helicopter."

I mean, I like that and all, but that doesn't make L.A. Noir bad. Plus, it's developed by Australian team Bondi. Which raises the question: Given the explicit M rating it got in the states I wonder if Australia would ban its own game?

Uhm... we have an M Rating. And MA. Its R18 we don't have, so if it only got an M in the states, it should be fine. The two things I've noticed that really get to the ratings board seems to be drug use and post mortem damaging. Anything that glorifies a drug (like turning Morphine into a health upgrade) and anything disrespectful to the dead (this includes dramatic character death, bodies still moving/twitching/bleeding after death)

Saints Row got around it pretty cleverly though. They made their drug power ups have negative side effects. Booze didn't just give you super strength, it made your screen wonky. It didn't glorify the use of alcohol as much, so the OFLC approved.

Sex, however... that ones a strict no-no. I hate having my entertainment evaluated by a bunch of aging, sheltered dicks :/

Just played the Red Faction: Armageddon and it's pretty much a piece of crap. not sure why we need another Red Faction really. Gorilla was fine, but I really don't care about this new one.

Played the demo... it was alright, but putting it underground in corridors kind of detracts from it. 3 was great. Jump a car, spear through a roof, pull a turn on landing to slam through a wall, car starts smoking up, get out, hammer through a wall, the building gets the ass blown out of it, shudders, the glass shatters as the strain starts to hit from all the support being blown out, and the thing collapses on the soldiers inside.

Now what we got is a linear shooter where things explode. They explode good, don't get me wrong, but I'll miss being on the surface.

Got L.A. Noir. So far, its pretty good, but I do have two issues, one very minor, and the other a pet peeve, so I can't really call it a problem with the game. First, it doesn't really have the polish of GTA4/RDR (just some jittery animations so far, nothing big). The other is... the physics.

Wheres the ragdoll guys? :/ This is Rockstar, the company currently in bed with Natural Motion, the Euphoria guys. Its there, but its hardly even used... people react to gunshots with standard animations and then keel over with standard animations, then clip into a ragdoll, and it makes zero sense to me. I tried shooting someone in the leg so I could arrest them and they just did the standard "Oh no, a bullet!" jerk and kept going.

I want L. A. Noire so bad. It doesn't come out for another 2 days, though. Which is probably just as well, as the last of my finals is on the 24th, so I'll probably be better off finishing those. After that, though, it's two months of gaming, RP and sleep.
