To anyone who has ever played Fallout 3

Just playing Fallout 3, wandering through the wastes when a Vertibird flew over and landed nearby. I let it deploy 2 Enclave soldiers and a Sentry Bot, then let loose with the Xuanlong and blew its tiltwinged ass up.

The troops still remaining, I sent the Sentry (!) Bot to Silicon Heaven via the medium of a couple of Pulse Grenades, and then turned my attention to the dickheads. One flanked me whilst I was checking the other one out, but I soon realised that the one I first looked at was about 10 yards from poisony death at the stingers of at least 3 Radscorpions and a giant one. I dispatched the flanker with a couple of short range rifle rounds, and turned round to see the scorpionic spectacle.

The Enclave soldier was fighting valiantly and still in surprisingly good health, but as I walked closer to get a good look, out of left field a Deathclaw rocked up to join in the rumble.

It was awesome.

Needless to say the Deathclaw was the only thing that (just) survived, but only for about ten seconds until it met its demise at the business end of the Terrible Shotgun.

This, my friends, is why I love Fallout 3.
