Now for something completely different, here are some thoughts on the ever changing nature of war based on something on the Fallout intro:
“War,” intones Ron Perlman, “war never changes.” There’s something we don’t hear often enough. Very pithy. Really sums up the history of warfare. I guess if I could amend just one thing in that statement it would be this: war changes. Sorry, Interplay/Black Isle/Bethesda et al, you’re just wrong. But don’t let that stop you from opening every Fallout game ever like that.[…]
So Bethesda, if you’re reading this, how about kicking Fallout 3 off with this post instead. I’m sure nobody would mind. Fallout fans are a fun-loving group, they’re very loose about this sort of thing.
Yep, we’re all happy tree huggers for sure. I don’t agree with everything that is written there, but if you are into Political Science or International Relations like me you’ll have some fun.
