Ramen and a Half Podcast: Episode 4

In this episode we discuss all things E3 that caught our eye!

Fallout Shelter (Android) Mini Review

Fallout ShelterThis game has only been out for about three weeks, on Android, and it doesn’t seem that I’ll stop playing it anytime soon.  When Bethesda announced this game back during E3, I was excited to play something new that was Fallout related; though I would have to wait two months to get my hands on the Android version, but it was worth the wait.  Not a day has passed since I haven’t been on this game; leveling up their abilities or sending them out in the Wasteland.

Fallout Shelter Vault

The game is simple enough.  You are the Overseer or your own Vault, sort of like the big boss, and your job is to build your Vault while making sure the people that live in your vault don’t die.  You’ll have to build water treatment plants, diners and power plants to be able to keep your Vault up and running.  While running your Vault, you’re also going to have to deal with fires breaking out, Radroach and Mole Rat infestations, Raider invasions, and the scariest of all… Deathclaw invasions.  I’ve had two Deathclaw invasions in a row and let me tell you, it is the worst thing that can happen to you.  Your power, water and food storage goes down quickly and they can (and will) kill your Vault dwellers so fast that you had better equip every dweller with good weapons to defend themselves.

Fallout Shelter Deathclaws

I really don’t know how long this game lasts.  Is it never ending? Will it game over once you reach your 1000th vault dweller?  I’m not sure if I’ll ever find out that answer because once Fallout 4 comes out this November, like so many others, I will probably be playing this game a whole lot less.  It’s a fun game.  Even if you are not a fan of the Fallout series you can still have fun, trying to see how big you can make your Vault.  Thank you Bethesda, for such a simple yet addictive and fun game; I can’t wait to see how your main title is going to turn out.

I give this mobile game an 8/10.  So long from Vault 47.
