Bethesda Outline Anti-Consumer Review Policy

Bethesda, developers of Elder Scrolls and Fallout and publishers of Dishonored, Doom, Wolfenstein and more, say that their policy now is to send out “media review copies” one day before their games come out. That’s what they did with DOOM earlier this year and that’s what they intend to do with the approaching releases of both Skyrim Special Edition and Dishonored 2.

We think this is a bad thing for you and for everyone other than Bethesda.

Steam Game Charts: So Much Sky, Man

I cannot in good conscience be seen to apparently promote the number one game, so here's Captain Blood instead.

Back To The Wasteland: Fallout 1.5 – Resurrection

Fallout. Fallout never changes. No, wait, that’s not quite right. Fallout. Fallout has changed too much.

Resurrection [official site] is a Fallout 2 mod for all those who think that even the second game was a step too far from the original. Dispensing with many of the pop culture references with which the sequel was “overfilled”, this brand new story, set in New Mexico in a time period between the two original games, returns to “the great atmosphere of decadence and hopelessness enjoyed by so many in the first Fallout game”. All you need to play is a full version of Fallout 2. Downloads are here.
