Fallout 3

  • No Fallout 3 PS3 DLC (and what's with all the schadenfreude?)

    How many times can you tease Sony about the state of the PS3 before you become bored? The news that Bethesda won’t be developing DLC for the PS3 version of Fallout 3 has prompted me to ask this Very Important question. Read More

  • 3D movies won't save Hollywood, nor convince us to ditch our HDTVs for movie theaters

    3D movie technology, as it stands, is a load of go-nowhere rubbish. If Hollywood thinks that the tech will convince moviegoers to leave the comfort of their homes, filled with HDTVs and Blu-ray (or upscaled DVDs), it’s got another thing coming. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Fallout 3 Collector’s Edition for $49.98 (Xbox 360)

    Oooh, a collector’s edition! Today only, Amazon.com is selling the Xbox 360 Fallout 3 Collector’s Edition for $49.98 with free shipping. What do you get for being such an adamant collector, besides the game itself? Things! Read More

  • Fallout 3 mod tools now ready to roll


    I’m sure we’re going to be seeing a lot of extra Vaults out there in a couple weeks — Fallout fanfiction forums are, I’m sure, just flamin’ hot right now. With any luck, they’ll make a few dungeons that are actually challenging. On normal difficulty (I know…) I ended the game with about 80 stimpacks and at least 20 mini-nukes unused. At that point… Read More

    Yahtzee seems to be not too opinionated on Oblivion with Guns, which I believe means he loved it. I’ve just embarked on the main quest after getting the best unique weapons and armor on the entire map, and the game just got really easy&hellip… Read More

  • Saints Row 2 and Oblivion With Guns selling like hotcakes


    Or so they say. There aren’t a lot of actual sales numbers back yet, but THQ has shipped over two million copies of the well-received GTA-like game to retailers and seems to be riding high, while Bethesda’s highly-anticipated Oblivion With Guns has shipped nearly five million copies, and I don’t think that includes Steam, which was how I bought it. I guess technically… Read More

  • Grudge match: Fallout 3 vs. Oblivion


    There’s an interesting comparison here between Bethesda’s two major works of this generation, Oblivion and Fallout 3. In the end, it seems Oblivion “won,” although the reasoning is pretty flimsy. Now, I think the idea of a comparison in the first place is flawed, since it stands to reason that for two things to be compared, they must first be different in some way. And… Read More

  • Fallout DRM not exactly "mild"


    Earlier this month, one of the Fallout 3 developers at Bethesda described the intended DRM for the game as the “mildest form possible.” Well, Securom7 isn’t really the mildest form possible, since it has a serious problem coexisting with drive emulation software like Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120%. Now, they could have done a lot worse, and to be honest, it doesn’t… Read More

  • Fallout 3 now available, ads pulled, don't even think about killing kids

    It’s been a ridiculously long time since Fallout 2 hit the scene (10 years ago) and available today is Bethesda’s much hyped and highly anticipated RPG Fallout 3. Thousands of retailers stayed open into the early morning last night to quench gamers thirsts for destruction and gore. Some folks in DC didn’t take too kindly to the ads because they depicted our nation’s… Read More

  • Fallout 3 leaked: On top BitTorrent sites, Usenet

    Fallout 3 for the Xbox 360 has leaked onto the Internet, and it’s available on all the big BitTorrent sites, Usenet, etc. You’ll needed a modded console to play it, obviously. The 6.52GB file leaked sometime yesterday, only a few days after the game went gold. I would say this is the second biggest leak of the year—Grand Theft Auto IV‘s leak, I think, was a… Read More

  • Fallout 3 gone gold, plus system requirements

    Goooooooold! Fallout 3 is ready to go and will be available on store shelves and online in North America on 10/28, in Europe and Australia on 10/30, and in the UK on 10/31. Take that, you limeys! I’m going to make it a personal goal to beat it by the time you lay down your pounds sterling at Ye Olde Games Shoppe or whatever. This is revenge for being more charming than me, so yes… Read More
