Besides the awesomeness and bravado of General Chase, the other two screenshots shows U.S. soldiers in T-51b Power armors and the infamous Vertibird from the Enclave forces.

Evil Nintendo DS Makes Child Scream

Posted in Gaming Rant, News, Nintendo DS on January 15, 2009 by Stephen

At least according to Ms. Clingerman.

Her 5 years old son Michael was playing with his Nintendo DS for half an hour until he had a panic attack.

“He then began to complain and cry, saying he was experiencing pain in his hand and that he wasn’t feeling well,” claims his mother, Isabelle Clingerman. “He began to scream and what he was experiencing was a type of motion sickness due to the game.”

Ms. Clingerman now hates Nintendo and she`s taking the console and games back to the store.

“I can’t recommend this game to any parent,” she says. “It’s not a substitute for reading a book or doing an outdoor activity with your child.”

As per usual, We wonder why she didn`t read a book or practice outdoor activities with her child in the first place…
