Wot I Think: Fallout 4: Far Harbor

The Fog comes and goes. Sometimes, on a good year, it hangs thinly around the mountains, or concentrates itself somewhere avoidable. It’s a hassle, but folks manage. Other years, it reaches out and drapes itself thickly across the whole island, swallowing villages and ruins and marinas. Folks manage a lot less. There are things in The Fog, you see. Old things, all twisted up by radiation and ill will. Sometimes The Fog carries poison. Sometimes it just drives you mad. Welcome to Fallout 4‘s Far Harbour. This is a bad year.

Dishonored Gets Comic & Novel Tie-Ins, First Due August

Dishonored 2 [official site] won’t be with us until November, however that doesn’t mean we can’t catch up with supernatural assassins Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin before then. Bethesda have announced comic and novel tie-ins to launch this summer, see, set in the Dishonored universe and taking place between the events of the original and the incoming sequel. The first issue of the proposed four-part comic series kicks off in August.

Fallout 4: Far Harbor Rolling Out Like So Much Maine Fog

Far Harbor, the first big hunk of DLC for Fallout 4 [official site], launches on Thursday (mostly) at midnight. Seeing as it’s already Thursday in some countries, hey, it may already be out! You may be playing it this very minute, reading RPS on your phone because you just can’t get enough. Though given what I know about Australian ISPs, maybe Europeans will be playing before you poor gits down under.

Anyway! Everyone, everywhere can now see a bit more of Far Harbor’s spooky island, weird enemies, big guns, and whatnot in a new dev video marking its launch:

Dishonored 2’s New Abilities Sound Promising

Dishonored 2 [official site] is one of those games that I don’t need to read about, because I’ve already decided that I’m going to play it based on how much I enjoyed the first’s blend of magic and stealthy murder. Still, for you, I have mined Game Informer’s recent preview for news of how its new and old powers will function.

Doom Gets Ready To Rip And Tear With Launch Trailer

Doom [official site] is impending. Whether it’s imminent Doom is a matter of perspective – sure, it’s been in development for eight years, but its launch in eight days is still far enough away to feel imaginary to me. Is it inescapable Doom? I suppose we have posted about it a fair bit. And unless something unprecedented happens, it’ll be inevitable Doom. All of which means that yes, it’s time for the new Doom’s launch trailer. Onwards to meet your Doom!

Fallout 4 Visiting Misty DLC Island Of Far Harbor On 19th

The first two Fallout 4 [official site] DLC add-ons were okay enough, but eyes have been on the third one. The first proper one. A big ole hunk o’ story by the name of Far Harbor. That’s the real stuff. Far Harbor will send the gang up to an island off the Maine coast to investigate goings-on between a colony of synths, Children of Atom cultists, and the regular townsfolk. Given that Stephen King owns all fictional representations of Maine (actual legal fact!), it’s no surprise that Far Harbor’s first trailer seems to be riffing a bit on the dark and foggy shores of that iconic author, dreamweaver, and visionary. With a bit of H.P. Lovecraft too.
