Fallout, the Power Armor really exists (but good luck buying it)

Fallout, the Power Armor really exists (but good luck buying it)


One of the most iconic items that immediately recall Fallout is definitely the Power Armor. The armor is present in virtually every chapter of the series, including the fourth (which you can buy on Amazon), but we never expected to see it in reality as well. Yet that's what happened on Reddit, with one user who managed to find one in perfect condition during a real estate sale.

Saw this guy at an estate sale today for $ 5000. from gaming

Obviously the one seen on Reddit is not real armor. The Power Armor of Fallout comes from a GameStop and was built as promotional material for the release of the third chapter. There is already a very similar precedent: one of the Best Buy chain stores sold the same armor for about $ 500, a figure that is certainly more affordable than that required during the real estate sale.| ); }
Fallout 3 debuted in 2008 and is one of the games that has initiated the rebirth of the brand after the acquisition of the franchise by Bethesda. Todd Howard and associates worked on three chapters of the title, including an online-only spin-off. The new chapter will certainly arrive in the near future, but first it is time for Bethesda to deal with Starfield, the first original IP of the development team in over twenty years of activity. Stay tuned to geekinco for all the news and announcements in the pipeline from the world of video games.

Economic fallout from Hurricane Fiona to reach $2B to $4B in Canada

Cleanup is underway in Atlantic Canada after Fiona made landfall early Saturday as one of the most intense weather systems to ever impact the country. Hundreds of thousands were left without power and scenes of incredible destruction emerged from Canada's far eastern reaches.

AccuWeather founder and CEO Joel N. Myers estimates total damage and economic loss from Fiona in Atlantic Canada to be between $2 billion and $4 billion. This negative impact to Canada's economy is in addition to the $10 billion in damage and economic impact estimate that AccuWeather issued for Puerto Rico.

At least three deaths have been reported in Atlantic Canada related to Fiona, including an 81-year-old man who was swept out to sea, Canadian news outlet CTV News reported. There was an extensive search for the man, identified as Larry Smith, but search efforts were suspended Monday.

'Our hearts go out to the family of Larry Smith. This is an unimaginable time for our province and I cannot imagine the additional pain you are enduring now,' said Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week deployed the military to help clean up and recovery efforts across the region.

'This is the worst damage I've ever seen here,' Pat Smith of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, said. 'We stayed downstairs cause the whole house was shaking.'

Myers has been studying the impact of extreme weather events on local and national economies for decades.

His estimate is based on an analysis that incorporates independent methods to evaluate all direct and indirect impacts of the storm. This includes insured and uninsured losses and is based on a variety of sources, statistics and proprietary techniques AccuWeather uses to estimate the damage, and includes damage to property, job and wage losses, infrastructure damage, auxiliary business losses, flight delays and medical expenses.

The estimate of $2 billion to $4 billion in losses for Atlantic Canada also accounts for the costs of evacuations, relocations, emergency management and the extraordinary expenses for cleanup operations and the long-term effects on business logistics, transportation, tourism as well as the costs of ongoing health effects in the aftermath of the storm, including those of unreported deaths and injuries.

Sustained winds frequently exceeded 100 mph in the hardest-hit areas, causing significant damage and widespread power outages across Nova Scotia.

The storm's central pressure bottomed out at 27.55 inches of mercury (933 mb), which is a new all-time record for Canada, breaking the old record of 27.76 inches of mercury (940.2).
