I’ve yet to go through Fallout: New Vegas after being less than enthused by Fallout 3 — though people keep telling me New Vegas is better, particularly if you didn’t like Fallout 3 all that much. Accordingly. watching this fan film origin story of New Vegas‘ Legate Lanius felt a bit like that one time I stumbled on some people watching Game of Thrones. Amidst all these proper nouns I was more lost than a wastelander without a Pip Boy.
Still, the production quality is high and the film itself quite stylish and Lanius-ly done. It feels a little bit like 300; filled to the brim with gratuitous violence and sexy, tan, bare man chest. Mmm. I ve-guess that’s all you need.
