You Know What ‘Fallout 4’ Needed? More Thomas The Tank Engine, That’s What

Back when I was a little urchin, Thomas the Tank Engine was the business. I lived for that shit. Thomas toys, Thomas pyjamas, Thomas drink cups, Thomas undercrackers… you name it.

The little blue dude is still going strong today. I remember when there weren't too many trains in the show, but now there's a cast of hundreds. Anything to get at more of parents' cashtacular. They call it Thomas and Friends, and Thomas has never had so many goddamn friends. I've seen arms dealers and crime bosses with smaller entourages.

But anywho, how does the children's TV hero stay relevant? By following the zeitgeist; by keeping up with the times. By… appearing in Fallout 4.

The completely batshit crazy ‘Really Useful Fallout Mod' changes various weapons and enemies in the game into Thomas. Deathclaws, missiles, Vertibirds and a couple others are Thomasfied, for reasons known only to Well Obviously Trainwiz Did It (the creator of the mod). As stupid as it sounds, it's even worse in action:

So there you have it. I'll leave you with these words from Trainwiz himself: ‘Sounds have also been replaced with horrifying, echoing train whistles. Your soul will be permanently tainted by them. You're welcome.'
