Fallout Shelter: The Facebook Game for Android

13 Aug

Fallout Shelter, the mobile game to tease players who are just dying for Fallout 4 to come out in November, is finally out on Android along with a patch for the iOS game adding new mobs to potential room disasters. Anyone who was expecting anything close to a normal Fallout game will be sorely disappointed, but that’s their fault for being idiots and expecting a mobile game sim to be more than a mobile game sim.

More than pleased with the price, I pull the trigger and (thanks to Amazon Prime) have my parts within three days.

At this point, I know that I have to unplug everything in the case, then reattach it to the new motherboard, but I’m not daunted. I’m excited! This is going to be awesome. My PC will run all my games faster, I can stream a little faster, everything will be amazing. Nothing could go wrong because I’m an independent female and I can totally do this.

A Slight Detour Gets me Lost

Turns out, I can totally not do this. Continue reading
