One incredibly talented Fallout 4 fan designs several Valentine’s Day cards featuring all of the potential companions from Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG.
Thanks to artist Jillian Bakos (AKA Ms. Jilly Jelly), Fallout 4 fans are now able to not only express their love for the game, but also show a special someone in their lives that they care with some delightful Valentine’s Day cards featuring all of the open world title’s companion characters. Most of the Fallout 4 cards are large enough to print off, so should one have an ample amount of ink in their printers, they’ll be able to radiate the warmth of their love to others with the cute little Valentines, as Bakos has made them free to use.
Each of the cards contain a cartoon-likeness of the game’s companions, as well as a pun or play on words involving a trait, characteristic, or common phrase of theirs. For instance, since Piper is a reporter that runs the newspaper Publick Occurrences in Diamond City, her card reads, “It’s no news that you’re pretty cute, Valentine”, while Preston Garvey (notorious for settlement aid requests) espouses, “You’ve made a settlement in my heart, Valentine”.
As seen in the gallery below, all of the characters are made to look as adorable as possible, including Strong the Super Mutant, who still somehow maintains his sense of brute superiority. Obviously, though, the immortal Dogmeat is clearly the most endearing of them all.
Of course, this is far from the first time that a Fallout 4 fan has used their artistic abilities to create stuff related to Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG. Prior to the title’s release, in fact, one person created a homemade Pip-Boy using a 3D printer. Then, well after the game had been out, another dedicated player decided to craft a realistic-looking version of one of the game’s weapons by building an intricately detailed pipe bolt action pistol replica. Nevertheless, Bakos’ Valentines are undoubtedly a lot more useful to the gaming community than the other two pieces mentioned.
Should Fallout 4 not be some gamers’ cup of tea, there’s always other alternatives out there to spread the love. As it happens, there are plenty of video game Valentine’s Day cards to reflect practically all tastes and genres. So, whether its Portal 2 or The Elder Scrolls on the card, the most important thing is that folks are showing those they love that they’re appreciated.
