In news that makes me even angrier I didn't think of it first, Bethesda has agreed to honor Imgurian GatorMacheteJr's payment of 2,240 predominately hard cider bottle caps for a pre-order of Fallout 4. The announcement was made by Bethesda Community Manager (aka fan liaison) Matt Grandstaff via Twitter, and sounds like it will be the only time bottle cap payment is accepted, so don't get any ideas. Remember: second place is the first loser.
He told me since I was the first person to do this, I would be receiving a copy of the game this November, and that he would be running my caps over to deposit them at the People's Bank of Point Lookout.
Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Start saving bottle caps for Fallout 5?" What? No. There is no way I'll still be alive by the time Fallout 5 comes out. I was going to say I should tell my family I'm getting married then create a wedding registry with nothing but Fallout 4 on it so somebody buys it for me. "There is no way they'd believe you even have a girlfriend." True. You know what my dad said when I told him I was bringing a girl home for Thanksgiving last year? Me neither, it was hard to understand through all the laughing. I think he was asking which hand she is though.
Thanks again to SV, for reminding me of things my brain is too sad to remember on its own.
