Come Friendly Bombs: Modding Fallout: New Vegas To Look More Like Fallout 4

By Alec Meer on June 24th, 2015.

This isn’t a guide, because it’s designed to be an open discussion about which other fan-made doohickeys are best bolted onto Fallout: New Vegas while we wait for the more vibrant Fallout 4 [official site] as much as it is my own recommendations. I want you, the veteran connoisseur of a game I skipped over at the time, to tell me and other readers what the must-have FNV mods are. But I’m also going to share a few I’m using, which have dramatically reduced the severity of the post-apocalyptic RPG’s savage ugly-stick beating. They’ve added some of the fidelity and most of all colour that we cooed at in Fallout 4 footage – a game which suggested an altogether more appealing wasteland.

Superdog: Fallout 4’s Dogmeat Can’t Die

By Jem Alexander on June 17th, 2015.

Woof.

Todd Howard has shared a lot of information about Fallout 4 [official site] so far this E3, but this latest titbit is easily the most important of the lot. Your faithful dog companion will never die. Despite the world being transformed into a nuclear wasteland, this makes Fallout 4’s universe the most beautiful of all the universes.

Fallout 4 Release Date Announced

By Philippa Warr on June 15th, 2015.

Nuclear winter is coming. I don’t know if that wordplay worked given the Boston setting for Fallout 4 [official site] seems pretty balmy but you’ll have to make your peace with it because it’s the best this jetlag will produce. As for *when* it’s coming, the answer is 10 November, 2015.

Fallout 4 was the big finale game at the Bethesda E3 conference, with Todd Howard revealing that the studio had been working on it properly for the past 4 years, although design started in 2009, pretty much as soon as Fallout 3 was done. At the event the company showed off a lot of artwork from the game as well as sharing more detail on some of the game’s mechanics, systems and setting.

Go It Alone: Chris Avellone Has Left Obsidian

By Adam Smith on June 9th, 2015.

RPG maestro and human stretch goal Chris Avellone probably isn’t planning to go solo but earlier today he confirmed that he’ll be leaving Obsidian. The studio’s most recent title was the superb Pillars of Eternity, on which Avellone worked as a narrative designer, but both he and Obsidian, the company that he co-founded, have a proud back catalogue. Obsidian is still home to some of the finest minds in the RPG business, not least Eternity lead Josh Sawyer, so my main interest here is not what happens to the studio he’s leaving but what Avellone does next.

Picboy: Here’s A Fallout 4 Annotated Gallery For You

By Alec Meer on June 3rd, 2015.

There was a trailer for a new videogame today. The internet seemed quite taken with it. We don’t actually know much about Fallout 4 at this stage, but I went through the trailer scene by scene to see what confirmations and implications I could glean from it. 40-odd screengrabs below, with annotation wibble for each. Click on any one of them for a 1080p version and gallery thinger (though bear in mind they’re grabs from a trailer so aren’t exactly After Eight-crisp.)

By Philippa Warr on June 3rd, 2015.

Fallout 4 announced

Fallout 4 has been confirmed thanks to the launch of the official website a little ahead of the Officially Official Super Official Big Fallout Announcement time Bethesda mentioned previously.

Please Stand By: Fallout 4 Announcement Tomorrow?

By Alice O'Connor on June 2nd, 2015.

Okay, sure.

Please let Fallout 4 have green. Let it be set somewhere with trees, or somewhere with colours, or at least let it not have that ‘orrible murk filter Bethesda seem so fond of. Let it have trees and let it, somehow, stack up well against The Witcher 3.

It seems the E3 festivities begin earlier each year, as Bethesda have knocked up a Fallout teaser site counting down to 3pm tomorrow. What oh what could it be? I don’t feel I’m going out too far on a limb by declaring it’s obviously the new Fallout game they’ve clearly been working on for years.

Fallout 4 Rumours Resurface On LinkedIn Profile

By Jem Alexander on May 11th, 2015.

As another E3 approaches, hopes rise anew for Fallout 4. With Bethesda hosting their first ever E3 press conference this year, chances are high they have something exciting to show us and, if a LinkedIn profile found by VideoGamer is to be believed, Fallout may be top of the list.

Apparently We Won’t Hear About Fallout 4 For ‘A While’

By Nathan Grayson on February 18th, 2014.

Guess it's time to replay Fallout 3 and New Vegas with tons of mods. Again.

It’s incredibly odd talking to a high-profile game developer when they can tell you very nearly nothing. It’s akin to squeezing lemonade from a lemon husk that’s been sitting in an open garbage bin for upwards of a year. All that comes out is dust and lemon-scented whispers of “no comment.” But Bethesda’s case is special. The complete and total lack of any sort of Fallout 4 announcement has become the thing that people are talking about. And when they’re not doing that, they’re making hyper-elaborate bogus ARGs about it and registering false trademarks. So when Bethesda game director Todd Howard approached me on the D.I.C.E. red carpet, that’s exactly what I asked him about. Here’s what he told me.

Report: Bethesda Casting Voice Actors For Fallout 4

By Nathan Grayson on December 11th, 2013.

All of that Fallout 4 build-up was a giant hoax. Let’s face it: Fallout 4 will probably never happen. I mean, why would anyone make a sequel to a massively successful reinvention of a legendary franchise? It just doesn’t make any sense. I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up or fashioned a suit of power armor out of my ultra-sexy 2007 Honda Fit or any of that. It was all for naught… unless! It actually wasn’t for naught at all. Of course Bethesda is making Fallout 4, and Kotaku‘s obtained some casting documents that allegedly prove it. Also included: possible first story details.

Fallout 4 Hoax Creator Breaks Cover, Explains Actions

By Nathan Grayson on December 10th, 2013.

Alas.

Plenty of people try to pull fast ones on the general gaming populace. Very few of them sit down for a pleasant fireside chat afterward. And yet, that’s exactly what the disappointment wizard behind infamous Fallout 4 “teaser” site Survivor 2299 did in the wake of a freshly canceled hoax campaign. Going by the name DCHoaxer on Reddit, he hosted an AMA that revealed why he did it, how much it cost ($990!), and what it was originally going to culminate in (a full-blown CG trailer). Hoaxcrafters and pranksters the world over, meet your new god.

It’s Pretty Unlikely That We’ll See Fallout 4 This Weekend

By Nathan Grayson on December 6th, 2013.

Well ain't that a punch in the head?

Blah. Bleh. Also bluh. I want Fallout 4, you want Fallout 4, the President (probably) wants Fallout 4, but Bethesda might have other plans. After a series of trademarks and countdown websites got us all in a tizzy – our faces practically aglow with irradiated glee – Bethesda’s seen fit to put what is maybe the final nail in this excitement-killing coffin. Everyone assumed an announcement would take place at this weekend’s Spike VGX, er, “awards,” but Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines has said that we shouldn’t get our hopes up.

Fallout 4 Trademark Filed, Maybe Might Be A Real Thing

By Graham Smith on November 18th, 2013.

Another next-gen dog awaits?

Alec covered the recent Fallout 4 rumours last week, prompted by this supposed teaser site. Reddit detectives suggested it might be fake, but this weekend brought another notch for the maybe-it’s-real column. Bethesda have now trademarked Fallout 4 in Europe.
