Bethesda teasing Fallout announcement as E3 nears

"War," Ron Perlman will almost certainly growl during Bethesda's E3 press conference. "War never changes," he'll likely continue. Then he'll go on about some past wars, which were bad, and tell us about fictional future wars which are also bad. Bethesda are teasing some sort of Fallout announcement, see. New or old, original or remaster... we don't know. But at some point soon we'll get…

The Fallout 3 remake mod Capital Wasteland is cancelled

We've previously covered the exciting-looking Capital Wasteland mod for Fallout 4. Planned as a full remake of Fallout 3 in the later game's engine, one prerequisite for such a project would be to port over the voice audio files from the original game, a legally grey move that could potentially earn the project a cease-and-desist or other legal threat. Wanting to preempt such issues, the Capital…

Capital Wasteland looks a lot like Fallout 3 in Fallout 4

Last time we looked at Capital Wasteland, the Fallout 4 mod unofficially recreating Fallout 3 inside the newer game, the team behind it were showing off a montage of environments. That's nice and all, but it's a stage many remake mods for many games have reached before fizzling out. Now they're showing: no, look, we really are doing it. A new gameplay video shows a…

Fallout 4’s New Vegas and Fallout 3 remake mods show off progress

One of the few certainties in this ever-changing world is: right now, someone, somewhere, is remaking an old Bethesda open-world RPG inside a newer game from that series. Fans are working on bringing several Elder Scrolls games to several newer Elder Scrolls games, while others are trying to put Fallout 3 and Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas inside Fallout 4. The teams behind the Fallout 3…

Fallout: Autumn Leaves Is A DLC-Sized New Vegas Mod

Desert-dwellers rejoice, Fallout: Autumn Leaves [official site] heralds a return to the post-apocalyptic Mojave in a mod similar in size to an official DLC expansion. Inspired by previous Fallout installments, Planetscape: Torment and Arcanum, Fallout: Autumn Leaves dumps The Courier into Hypatia, a never before seen town just east of Novac. From here, he must once again scour the barren Desert Wasteland in a journey…

Teddy Bear Swapsies & Drunken Tomfoolery In Fallout 4

The other day I grumped a little at the idea of our dutifully posting all seven of the Fallout 4 [official site] S.P.E.C.I.A.L. videos over the coming weeks, but you lot rightfully called me out on my cynicism. These cute animated shorts are doing a handy job of summarising Fallout's systems and general attitude. So here's the fourth one then, this time looking at that…

Post-Post-Apocalypse: Fallout 4 DLC & Modding Details

You shouldn't really eye up the dessert menu before your main course has arrived, but sometimes the need to know that profiteroles are definitely available gets the better of one. And so it is that ears are already pricking about Fallout 4 [official site]'s post-launch stuff things, including word of downloadable content and a vague window for its mod support.

Fallout 4’s Mod Tools Won’t Be Ready Till Next Year

It's hardly a Bethesda RPG if you can't replace some part of it with the chugging terror of Thomas the Tank Engine, but Fallout 4's mod tools won't be ready at the game's launch on November 10th. Speaking to IGN, Bethesda's VP of Marketing Pete Hines said that, their "entire focus is on finishing the game."

The Bomb: Fallout Anthology Out October 2nd

Bethesda are taking advantage of the encroaching release of Fallout 4 [official site] with plans to release a hefty collection of Fallout games. They're calling it, quite naturally, Fallout Anthology. Put a circle around October 2nd in your calendars; the Anthology includes all five games in the Fallout series from the original through New Vegas, and all the relevant DLC in between. There's also space in its…

Wasteland 2’s Live Action Intro Sidesteps Perlmanisms

I can remember covering the first wave of big Kickstarter games in all their crowd-sourced hype, and feeling conflicted with every post. It was so exciting that all this could happen, traditional barriers between games and their players so suddenly eroded, but at the same time it all seemed like so many promises, talk of a new golden age that was so still so impossibly…

Fallout 4 Is Or Isn’t Being Revealed Soon, Would You Believe

Could it be? Is it even remotely possible? Has a major videogame publisher truly decided to make a sequel to one of its best-selling games? O brave new world, that has such speculation in't. Bethesda alternating between Elderses and Falloutses seemed pretty much a given to me, so when talk arose around a URL apparently bought by Bethesda and entitled 'Survivor 2299', a return to…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for boarding up the windows, counting the canned goods and panic buying videogames. Also, for doing things for the first time. Every year the Interactive Fiction competition attracts inventive entries in the words-you-play genre. Every year, Emily Short writes smart-words-you-read about the entries she likes, and it's worth spending a day diving through the round-up of her favourites, before playing the games for…

And Here’s Obsidian’s Idea For Fallout: New Vegas 2

When you speak with someone in Las Vegas, the topic of conversation naturally shifts to Vegas-themed things. In the case of Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart, that meant Star Wars, of course. Oh, and I guess Fallout: New Vegas. During a DICE chat that lasted innumerable moons, months, seasons, and centuries, Urquhart and I briefly touched on his studio's return to its old techno-magically irradiated Black…

RIP Skyrim/Fallout 3 Artist Adam Adamowicz

You may not know Adam Adamowicz's name, but if you've played either Fallout 3 or Skyrim, you'll have seen masses of his work. His job was to produce the vast and imaginative collections of concept art that made their worlds so exciting to explore, from characters to weapons, to the jaunty hats your hero could opt to wear while slaughtering deathclaws and daedra alike. Very…
