In Russia, Fallout 3 Plays You


A bunch of Russian gamer nerds couldn’t help notice the similarity of many of eastern Russia’s current abandoned buildings and surrounding wilderness and the bleak, deadly setting of Fallout 3. So they decided to basically have the ultimate cosplay event, and get together with everyone dressed straight out of the Vault, as it were. I don’t know if they’re LARPing or just dressing up, and I also don’t know if this is fantastically awesome or really, really depressing. I do know that this massive gallery of pics is awesome, so go look at them and try not to think to hard about the ramifications that modern Russia is basically post-apocalyptic America. Thanks to the beguiling Jason Y. for the tip.
