Fallout 4 Rumours Resurface On LinkedIn Profile

As another E3 approaches, hopes rise anew for Fallout 4. With Bethesda hosting their first ever E3 press conference this year, chances are high they have something exciting to show us and, if a LinkedIn profile found by VideoGamer is to be believed, Fallout may be top of the list.

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 now, finally, we can explore the wasteland in all its top-down glory once more, just as god intended before he left and let nukes happen.

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 add the free versions to your account in the next 47 hours (I’m an hour late with this post – SORRY), you’ll be able to keep a copy forever. Go go go.

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 flowers of the Burnout series, which need to reset after all but the gentlest of collisions, the FlatOut rustbuckets fight, scraping, grinding and running each other off the road. Hopefully we’ll know more about the studio’s next car game, Next Car Game, soon.

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 is apparently back. I mean, look at that picture. It’s as clear as day.

IsoMetro: Post-Apocalyptic Turn-Based RPG Underrail

Is this the 8.15 to Luton?

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 your life.

Fallout Free For Forty-Eight Fours Hours

You might want to slap the high res patch http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=42386 onto Fallout

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 never went 3D all of a sudden.
