Long before there was even the concept of war, there were already mothers. Cave mothers who wiped the saber-tooth crumbs from her baby’s face paved the way for fertile crescent mothers, who undoubtedly used Hammurabi’s Code as an idol threat to get her children to clean their rooms. Mothers learned and adapted as the times passed, and we saw many great mother’s shape the course of their own lives, and the lives of their children. We have also seen how the neglect and absence of a poor mother could negatively affect our society, and thus we learned to appreciate mothers even more. Even still, the modern mother and the future of mothering still holds true to the original constructs born of instinct in those very first days of human life because motherhood, motherhood never changes.
Except…of course if atomic warheads drop all over the entire earth, you’re sudden frozen in a underground vault, and you only wake long enough to see your husband murdered and your baby abducted before being released into a unrelenting world of destruction and horror. What would being a mother be like then?
If Fallout 4 is any indicator, that would be ONE BAD MOTHER. Let’s find out together today on my live stream of Fallout 4, where I’ll start up a new character, our mother figure, and adventure out with a keen eye for nurturing. We’ll be playing on the PlayStation 4, and the game will be on the new Survival mode, so get ready to watch someone die a bunch.
The stream starts at 8:30 AM PST/11:30 AM EST with character creation and we’ll try to get into the game proper at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 NOON EST. The stream is below, so please join, watch, comment, question, and enjoy!

I ran through for a few hours before we ran into a connection error, so I’m going to take a brief break, get in proper contact with my mother, and then we’ll try it again around 11:30 AM PST / 2:30 PM PST. See you then! In the meantime, feel free to view the first video below.
