The radiation storms in Far Harbor are mesmerising. In fact, I’m minorly obsessed with the fog mechanics of the entire DLC. Before, the fog just sort of existed, but this DLC had the fog moving and being active around the harbour town of Far Harbour (or maybe Far Harbour is the entire island. I haven’t figured that one out yet). Either way, I’m hooked already.

I originally treated myself to the season pass because I was really after the settlement items (yes my one-woman mission/obsession to rebuilt the Commonwealth continues). But I’m finally taking the opportunity to dive into the narrative side of it. And about time too. Usually, the narrative is what I’m all about. Which is a statement that goes into all video games I play. I am never interested in pure fighting games, they have to be engrossing and immersive stories. Which is probably why my highest ranking video games so far are the Fallout series, the Bioshock series and the Batman: Arkham Trilogy (Origins was a prequel, I’m sticking with trilogy!)

For now though, I’m sticking with Fallout, because I’m far from finished obsessing over visuals.


“I’m through accepting limits
’cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!”

This morning’s cup of Earl Grey is sponsored by Wicked, one of my absolute favourite musicals (though that list might be slightly too long to be considered meaningful). It was rather pleasurable to wake up with song lyrics stuck in my head, instead of to-do lists. Despite having gotten so little done yesterday, my mind needed the respite.

I did not expect to hit a bump in the road so early into this Uganda project. I didn’t consider that since I’d previously already had Koha installed and set up for me, the process of doing so would be quite beyond my technological capabilities. It is a rather large bump in the road but hopefully, with some outside help, it won’t be the rapid end to our project.

Sadly, my to-do list isn’t shrinking as of yet. The fact that I have just turned on my Xbox will not really help either. But I could use a little bit of time off before diving back in. Time off have been a rarity these last few months, so some guilt-free Fallout 4 is more than called for I’d say.
