Free Fallout Felicitations

It's a big week for venerable download service Gametap. Yesterday, they announced they'd be merging with euro-rival Metaboli (though most likely at the expense of hosting indie-ish fare, apparently), and today they're offering up the original Fallout for no-pennies. Which is bad news for the nascent GoG, who intend on flogging the game for actual money, but at least their version doesn't involve that icky Gametap downloader bloatware thingy. Yes, it's a game a lot of people own already. Yes, Gametap's DRMy stuff means you don't get a perfect, untouched digital copy to keep forever and ever. But: free. One of history's finest RPGs, free. Go! Give yourself an excuse to complain the old ways were best.
