Elizabeth E. looted everything in Fallout 3's Raven Rock. She collected three units of vodka, five stealth devices, four cuts of mirelurk meat and 88 Stimpacks, which weighed her down a considerable 1,437kg. Her pack was so heavy that travelling from Raven Rock to Fort Independence took four hours. She was over-encumbered and couldn't fast-travel. Elizabeth didn't mind; that way, she could talk to all the non-player characters on the way. After three playthroughs, her save file recorded over 500 hours.
On Saturday night I went to bed, stared at my ceiling in the darkness. I pursed my lips, brows narrowed in thought. Then I nodded to myself, resolute in the decision I was about to make.
Yes. Decision made. The Legend of Zelda. Breath of the Wild. best game I've played since Dark Souls.
I took a deep breath, exhaled, secure in this big decision I had just made. I made a half attempt to explain the sheer importance of this decision to my wife, who gallantly restrained her laughter.
