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…

Go It Alone: Chris Avellone Has Left Obsidian

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…

Store Never Changes: Old-School Fallouts Back On Steam

You might remember that a while back there was a rights kerfuffle involving sales of Fallout 1, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. Basically, the license always belonged to Interplay, but it changed hands to Bethesda at the end of last year. The games were then removed from stores like Steam and GOG, presumably because with a new rights holder comes new terms, negotiations, etc. But…

No Caps: Fallout 1, 2 And Tactics Free At GOG

As the headline says, three Fallout games for free. GO AND GET THEM. These isometric beauties will vanish from GOG at the end of the year. The DRM-free store doesn't reckon it'll be allowed to peddle them after year's end as the current deal with Interplay will expire. After December 31st, the rights belong to Bethesda/ZeniMax. However, the magic of GOG means that if you…

Carface: FlatOut Developers Announce Next Car Game

Next Car Game may well be a working title, but that hasn't stopped Bugbear from setting up camp at nextcargame.com. The video, below, is "all in-game footage" and it looks like a rock 'em sock 'em destruction derby. Hurrah! The developers FlatOut games aren't entirely about crashing cars but it's an activity that is very much encouraged. The vehicles in Bugbear's racer aren't the delicate…

Back In: Black Isle Being Resurrected By Interplay

Hmm. Well, this came out of nowhere. OK, not entirely nowhere - we are living in the age of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Wasteland 2, and talk of a new Planescape: Torment, after all - but I can't say I was expecting Black Isle to just suddenly explode out of the suspiciously human-sized birthday cake that is life. And yet, here we are. Black Isle Studios…

IsoMetro: Post-Apocalyptic Turn-Based RPG Underrail

John's just been moaning that he wants a new RPG to lose himself in for hours, and so I will provide. Well, eventually. Underrail isn't out yet - why must videogames exist before they are finished? - but if the wait for Wasteland 2 seems too torturous perhaps this could fill that turn-based, it's the end of the world and I feel fine, hole in…

Fallout Free For Forty-Eight Fours Hours

We interrupt our regularly-scheduled (no, really - we're actually semi-organised about that stuff these days) posting to bring you news that the newly de-olded GoG.com is currently offering the original Fallout for the princely sum of zero for the next 48 hours. Until 23.59 GMT on 8 April, specifically. Here! It's here! Rather good timing, what with the current Wasteland fever. It's like post-nuclear RPGs…

Kicking Up The Dust: Fargo On Wasteland

Brian Fargo has been talking about the past and future of the Wasteland sequel that he hopes to fund through a Kickstarter campaign, and as many suspected he hasn't suddenly decided to put forward the idea because his eyes sprang out of his head and turned into dollar signs after seeing this action. Nothing of the sort. In an interview with No Mutants Allowed, Fallout's…

Brian Fargo Turning To Kickstarter For Wasteland 2

At this rate, everybody will soon see their favourite developer starting some kicks or kicking some starters. Brian Fargo, creator of Wasteland, the game that launched a thousand Fallouts, has espied the queue of well-regarded figures approaching their adoring audience cap in hand and is now seeking a cap of his own. It'll be a comically large bit of headwear as he wants to cram…

Bethesda Own All Rights To A Fallout MMO

You may remember that last week we brought the news that the legal fusspottery over the ownership of the rights to make a Fallout MMO had come to an end. We just didn't know which way the nuclear chips had fallen. It seems things fell in Bethesda's favour, in a fight that now looks rather like Goliath squished David with his fist. Eurogamer are reporting…

Bethesda/Interplay Argy-Bargy Ends

It's the Duke Nukem Forever of gaming-based legal scuffles, and apparently it's over at last. We don't yet know the details - i.e. who's won, who's paying who what and most of all who, if anyone, will be releasing a Fallout MMO - but we do know that, after an awful lot of back and forth and he said no he said but he started…

Most Able: Fallout’s Tim Cain Joins Obsidian

Good, in fact excellent, tidings for those who find themselves able to enjoy Fallouts both old and new, and for anyone who lived through the 90s heyday of PC RPGs. Tim Cain, the main brain behind the original Fallout and later co-founder of the much-missed Troika, has fetched up at Obsidian. Until this July, he was at Carbine, working since 2005 on what turned out…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Fallout New Vegas Might Work Better Now

Obsidian's high-selling (five million in its first month, they say) Fallout 3 expandosequel New Vegas might be somewhat, ah, divisive, but it's certainly got plenty of earnestly enthusiastic fans. And they will certainly be glad to hear that a megapatch landed yesterday, purporting to finally fix up a ton of the RPG's infamous bugs. It doesn't look like this is going to be a KOTOR…

More Falling Out? Fallout Online Teaser Site

This is getting interesting, at least in the industry-watching way. Despite the last we heard was Bethesda denying that Interplay have been given the okay to progress with the Fallout MMO, a teaser site - including a mailing list and Beta-possibility sign-up - has just launched. The whole site is incredibly slow right now, but it's all first-person looking at cards before being lobbed on…

Atomic: Fallout Music Remastered

Enjoy the smooth sounds of the wasteland, with a freebie 24-track pack of music from the Fallout 1 and 2 soundtracks. Original composer Mark Morgan has poked and prodded the score into a shiny form suitable for the discerning 21st century ear. The whole Vault Archives set is available here, along with four streaming tracks for preview purposes. It remains incredibly evocative sinister-ambient musicology. (Via…
