First day in Commonwealth (Fallout 4)

My first day in the Commonwealth.

The game starts off like the usual from the trailer, in the year 2077. The game also takes you through the usual create-your-character-and-name-it walkthrough. You select your SPECIAL stats, and off you go. You’re out of the introduction in about 20 minutes give or take, before you can roam around the wasteland as you desire. The game will also try to guide you if you’re completely lost and don’t know what to do.

It’s a win/win for both newcomers to the Fallout series and experienced players from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.

                <img width="240" height="240" src="" /> 
        <div class="caption">
            Image overlay

What we want to achieve is a slightly transparent overlay with a caption over the image when we hover over it:
