5:30 AM is just never a good time to get ready on a Monday, especially when you've been up much too late the night prior.
A little background on me: I'm a geek. I build computers and play video games, silly things no grown man should do in his precious little free time. However, I haven't had a chance to play in a good long while with everything going on at the house.
After last night, perhaps that's for the best. I ended up picking up on my unfinished game of Fallout 3: New Vegas and the next thing I knew it was way, way, way past my bedtime.
Upside: I saved the Hoover Dam and destroyed a tribe of vicious slavers.
Downside: My whole body feels as if it was worked over with a hammer while I slept and I'm going to be completely useless for the rest of the day.
If you've never played Fallout 3, I highly recommend it. Not only is it a solid game, but the whole thing is set in a retro-futuristic world that should appeal to any mid-century design enthusiast. I couldn't really find any quality shots of the buildings or interiors (I guess most players are focused on the action rather than the design). However, you may recognize a few pieces that were "inspired" by real-life Mid-Century Modern designs, such as the Heywood Wakefield M364-G TV table and Eames shell chairs.
Go ahead and give Fallout 3: New Vegas a try sometime. Just keep an eye on your clock.
