Fallout New Vegas DLC contest this time was to suggest research projects for DLC3: Old World Blues, taking you to the technological graveyard of the Big Empty, one winner:
I chose the one from Blinzler below, because like Old World Blues, it draws upon the history of Fallout and in this case, Blinzler's entry reminded me of the Burrows (even though the Burrows never existed, one of the goals of Old World Blues was to dig into the history of how certain inventions and critters in the Fallout universe came to be). As long as the experiments don't involve Power Armor. Or Vaults. Because both of those are taboo. Shhh. But other stuff is fine. If it's in the Mojave.
Blinzler: FEV enhanced squirrels. To guard the mutant trees, of course. The ones with all the skeletons around them.
If you're not familiar with the original Fallout 1 concept for the "Burrows" and the fact that it was flushed from Fallout 1, check it out. Burrows Design Doc on the Fallout Wiki
And, of course, an Honorable Mention for Comedic Value.
ericsiry: OWB research project: Who is Bending All Those Tin Cans?
I have wondered the same thing, and I can see the Think Tank of the Big Empty obsessively studying such phenomenon.
I'll think of a new contest soon before the 19th. I don't have anymore Fallout shirts, unfortunately, but we'll think of other cool Fallout-related prizes to fire over.
