Fallout: New Vegas’ director celebrated its 10th birthday with a charity stream

Fallout: New Vegas celebrated its 10th birthday last week. Can you believe the best Fallout game came out on October 19th 2010? 2010! To honour an entire decade of Obsidian's brilliant-but-buggy RPG, the game's director Josh Sawyer did a couple of charity streams to raise money for the California Wildlife Relief Fund. Over the weekend, he managed to raise just under $24,000 (around £18,000) for…

Fallout 4’s New Vegas remake mod saddles up for a slick new trailer

If I remember correctly, one of the bigger complaints against Fallout 4 on release was that it wasn't Fallout: New Vegas. Obsidian's spin-off is seen by many as the series' last stab at proper, old-school RPG'ing before Bethesda turned the post-apocalypse into a playful sandbox. Naturally, a group of modders have been hard at work bringing New Vegas' guns 'n' graphics up to date with…

This huge Fallout: New Vegas mod replaces 145 NPC voices with new actors

If you've played Fallout: New Vegas a handful of times you've almost certainly done a double take once or twice when you recognise the voice of a character. Wait, didn't I meet you already? You had a different face then. The voice talent in New Vegas can be spread a bit thin at times, with some actors portraying quite a few characters. This overhaul mod…

A Fallout TV show is on the way from the makers of Westworld

War never changes, but prestige TV sure can. Today, Bethesda announced that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, creators of HBO's Westworld, are taking their cinematic lens to Fallout, working with Amazon Studios to create a post-apocalyptic telly show based on the long-running nuke 'em up RPG. Hold on, though - a darkly comic show about robot cowboys, deserts and conspiracies? Sounds quite a leap for…

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare RPG returns to Fallout’s tabletop roots

Way back in the forgotten times of glossy paper games magazines, I remember my first exposure to what would become Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game. Early previews said Fallout was going to be a PC showcase of the GURPS pen-and-paper RPG system, but it grew into its own thing. Now, tabletop studio Modiphius have announced the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Roleplaying Game, a freeform…

Fallout: New Vegas retextured by a neural network is disturbingly, redemptively beautiful

Obisdian's Fallout: New Vegas might be the best of the Bethesda-era Fallout games, but it still got dragged through the ugly hedge backwards a dozen times over. There's no higher resolution, sharpened texture pack or post-process filter in the world that can save this pudding-faced monstrosity from its blobby brown fate. Time for extreme measures. E.g. getting a neural net to re-texture the entire game…

Fallout: New California is a massive prequel mod to Fallout: New Vegas and out now

Fallout 76 may be on the horizon, with Bethesda preemptively warning players of 'spectacular' bugs, but fans hungry for a more traditional, solo apocalypse are well served today. Fallout: New California might technically be a mod for Fallout: New Vegas, but it's closer to a whole new game. Set out in the New California Republic twenty years before The Courier got shot in the face,…

Fallout 76 sets its pre-order beta folk loose on the wasteland October 30th

The radioactive wasteland of any Fallout game is a dangerous place, and twice as deadly for those who go in early. Those who pre-ordered Bethesda's multiplayer spinoff Fallout 76 on PC (or PS4), can dive into post-apocalyptic West Virginia on October 30th, two weeks ahead of its November 14th launch date. Expect bugs, server issues and occasional nuclear explosions - par for any beta, really.…

Fallout 76’s online jerks parodied in New Vegas mod

While Fallout 76 isn't out until November, you can experience a taste of post-apocalyptic multiplayer survival today in a new mod for Fallout: New Vegas. Modder "funkySwadling" has blessed the Mojave Wasteland with the sort of folks you might meet online: jerks camping newbies, jerks spamming terrible sounds and shouting hateful epithets, and groups of players geared to the nines who'll be tickled by your…

Fallout: The Frontier invites us to post-nuclear winter war

It is looking like a very fine year indeed to be a Fallout fan. Even if you're not on board with Fallout 76 taking the series online, we've got two full-game-length mods on the way, both due out before the end of 2018. Fallout: The Frontier is an unofficial expansion for Fallout: New Vegas, and has you heading to the frozen north to aid a crew…

New Vegas mod Fallout: New California due this October

While the recently announced Fallout 76 might be diverging from series standards, it looks like fans of traditional dialogue and roleplaying-heavy Fallout adventures won't be entirely left out this year. Originally announced in 2010 as Project Brazil, Fallout: New California is effectively a whole new Fallout game built on top of the New Vegas engine by modding crew Radian-Helix Media, and it's due for release on…

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 Wasteland…

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: Project Brazil becomes Fallout: New California

Crumbs, four years since we last posted about wildly ambitious Fallout: New Vegas prequel mod Project Brazil [ModDB page] and it's still not finished. It is a mighty big project, adding a fully-voiced new campaign in a new wasteland. But hold strong! "We are beginning our final approach to releasing this gargantuan mod," developers Radian-Helix Media said today, repeating that they expect to launch it…

The End Is Nigh: Fallout 4 Launch Trailer

Through a combination of avoidance and intentionally vague marketing, I've managed to come this close to the release of Fallout 4 [official site] without knowing a great deal about the setting and plot. Yes, the bombs have fallen and, yes, there's at least the one Vault involved in whatever happens next, but I had no idea what I'd be looking for out there in the…

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.

The weekend crept up on us silently, catching us snoozing or distracted flicking through magazines. But now it's here! Loudly! In our faces! And has brought a dog! Read on to be wholly surprised by which game many of us are playing this weekend, then why not tell us what you're clacking away at?
