Here's Fallout 4's official bogus doctor's excuse to get out of work on Tuesday

I'm not sure what kind of Medicine skill check Pete Hines passed to get his degree, and I'm not sure what kind of Speech check you'll need to pass this off to your boss or professor. But here it is, a baloney get-out-of-work slip for Tuesday when Fallout 4 drops.

Hines is Bethesda's chief spokesman, so he is not in your health insurer's network. Not that your HR knows everyone who is. At any rate, that's his scrawl, so I'm gonna start forgin' some scrips for Buffout and hope my pharmacist didn't go to Wake Forest when Pete was there.

Fallout 4 arrives Tuesday, about six months after Bethesda confirmed it existed for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. You should get to pre-loading it if you've bought the game digitally. If not, maybe fool around with the Pip-Boy app for iOS and Android.
