I was having a conversation with Kodi a while back in the forums about the difficulties and expense of implementing branching story lines. Good fucking gravy - 200 endings?! We can safely assume that they are variations on each other; perhaps in one ending you're awarded a gold medal, and in another you're given a block of cheese. Even still, those Bethseda guys are nuts. They're going to have some nightmare deadline crunchtime sessions.
I'm really rooting for this game. I'm not one of those hardcore Fallout fanatics who are decrying this iteration for "betraying the franchise's integrity" or whatever those forum trolls are cooking up lately, but I do hope the new experience lives up to the reputation of the venerable name. Bethseda were the peeps behind Oblivion, which I thought was something of a mess in terms of focus of storytelling. I hope their flowchart looks better than the one Vargas cooked up in the strip. (BTW, Vargas, I think the phrase "Super Jesus" is a tad redundant.)
For you arcade shooter fans, Ikaruga released on Xbox Live Arcade. This was the last great vertical scroller to be released (Dreamcast and GameCube) and is worth every penny, as long as you can handle the punishingly difficult gameplay. In case the vid below is confusing you, you can switch between black and white. When you're black, you can absorb black damage and vice versa when you switch polarity. Simply amazing game.

You may think that "Super Jesus" is redundant, but tell that to the pair of frantic, panicked, and crazy eyed badgers that are drawing up plans to meet their unfair deadline. To them, Super Jesus sounds just fine.
Maybe when they slow down, the badger responsible for your thinking and talking will come to his senses and, in a moment of clarity, will think to himself, "Super Jesus? Really? What were we on?" That or he'll simply blame the badger responsible for your lower torso.

Ok, WTF...now I'm reading that they'll have more than 500 endings!
