National Radio Day!

Happy National Radio Day! I don't actually listen to the radio a lot, just Pandora or one of the other internet radios. I love to listen to old radio dramas though. Strangely enough, I discovered my favorite one through a Fallout 3 radio mod. It played old recordings of an old sci-fi show called X Minus One. I loved it so much, that I found it online and downloaded them all. Not all of them are memorable, but most are very entertaining. The one I remember the best is the one where humanity is trapped underground after the nuclear bombs fell, much like Fallout 3. I can't remember the name of it though.

Also, there was a Creatures radio show at one point! There aren't any recording from the show, but the original site has been archived. I found it while searching for radio agents, and thought it was too neat .

There aren't a lot of radio agents, but the C3/DS ones are pretty good. Two of them are just the beat box from C3 in an object pack. The one from the connective agent pack does allow you to inject it in DS standalone, if you have C3 installed. The survivor and portal radios are probably the most interesting radios in this bunch. They play different songs, and the survivor radio even makes the Creatures around it say something.

Creatures 1 Wolfling Runs are Impossible

...for me at least. C1 is the only Creatures game that I can't run a wolfling run in. I can run them in DS without a problem and have even managed a few in C2 before. But C1? No. I've tried many times and I either stopped it half way through to cure all of the sick Norns, or watched them all die. Recently though, Jessica updated some of C1's food sources. So I figured I would give it another shot.

I should have learned from past mistakes though, since the run failed miserably. All of my males died before breeding, so I hatched a new set. I got one egg from them, which I promptly froze. I figured things might get better after that but they didn't. All but three of my Norns were wiped out in a plague on the island. So only two males and one female survived. The males are probably going to die from starvation and the last female isn't doing much better. She's sick and dying in a corner.

So even if C1 wolfling runs are possible, I don't think I want to try them anymore. Especially not after this run. She's just sitting there, sneezing. There's even a cheese by her foot, but she won't eat it.

just eat the cheese please
