post apocalyptic weapon design 101...

Here's the originals for Fallout 3. Not to be megalomaniacal since everyone here made this game happen, but these two weapon designs are very special and dear to me... 'Scuse me, got something in my eye here, 'snif, snif'.. Ahem. See below for the continued magic as people I've never met in faraway places actually went ahead and fabricated them so they could be gleefullybrandished in pleasant public settings.
I hope they weathered up that hotel lobby with some empties....

Proud Moment....

When someone goes to the trouble to build one of your designs at home... Well, It's like Christmas morning. On a personal level, this is the best kind of award you can receive for working on a game.
For the uninitiated these weapons were initially concocted by me and the team for Fallout 3. The shishkesword had my brain in knots for weeks, and several trashcans full of wadded up drawings later getting that one was a real eureka moment... To say the sculptors in these pictures did them justice is a vast understatement.
Hats off for an awesome job done with... Love For Absurdly Wicked Weapon Designs! Thank you Thank you Thank you. See that Red Stripe next to the Laser Rifle? Next one's on me.
