Fallout 3

  • Fallout: New Vegas screenshots, now with orange HUD

    Fallout: New Vegas looks a lot like Fallout 3. This insight and more, right here on CrunchGear! Read More

  • First screenshots of Fallout MMO (that may never be released)

    Long before Fallout 3 there was Fallout 2. And before that, Fallout. Interplay made the two first games, while Bethesda made the third one under some sort of licensing deal that would allow Interplay to create new Fallout games not connected to Fallout 3. Then Bethesda sued Interplay, which puts a game it was working on, a Fallout MMO, in jeopardy. These are screenshots of that game, to be used… Read More

  • Fallout Holocaust: Experiments in ultra-violence

    Sandbox games are nothing new, but in general, most players try to play the game in the way the designers intended: be good, complete quests, and reach the eventual end of the game in an orderly fashion. Sometimes though, you just have that urge to be bad. Gamer and writer Alexander Gambotto-Burke has written about his descent into madness, and how purely visceral and difficult it is to play… Read More

  • Yeah, all those Fallout 3 DLCs will be available for the PS3 soon

    Man, how did we miss this yesterday? Well, if you didn’t already know, all those Fallout 3 DLCs will be coming to the PS3 this year, with the first one, Operation: Anchorage, debuting in late June. The other two will be released thereafter, most likely at 4-6 week intervals. Read More

  • Really Broken Steel: Fallout 3 DLC launch marred by bugs, bugs and more bugs

    Looks like Broken Steel, the latest expansion pack (“DLC” in newspeak) for Fallout 3, is giving both PC and Xbox 360 gamers a whole host of problems. PC gamers have reported receiving a cryptic error message when trying to install the game; Bethesda blames a Games For Windows DRM-related glitch for the problem. (I wonder if the pirated copies are affected by this glitch? Good… Read More

  • Video: This is the Fallout 3: Broken Steel trailer

    Within lies the Fallout 3: Broken Steel trailer. The expansion comes out tomorrow on Xbox Live and Games For Windows Live. It’ll cost 800 Microsoft points. It raises the level cap from 20 to 30, and it somehow fiddles with the game’s ending. That is all. Read More

  • DLC alert: Fallout 3: Broken Steel for PC, Xbox 360 on May 5

    Yet anotherFallout 3 DLC is coming our way. Available on May 5 for the PC and Xbox 360, Broken Steel takes place on Andrews Air Force Base, just outside the DC Wasteland proper. The level cap is being raised to 30, and there’ll be more guns, perks, enemies, etc. About what you’d expect, in other words. Read More

  • Bethesda's lawyers to Interplay's lawyers: Hey, where's that Fallout MMO you guys promised?

    The Almighty Dollar strikes again, with word that Bethesda is none too pleased with Interplay’s progress on a Fallout MMO. Interplay sold the rights to Fallout to Bethesda a few years ago, and those rights included everything except an MMO. Hence, Fallout 3. But! Now Bethesda, seeing so many dollar signs, is asking Interplay what’s up with its supposed MMO. Translation: Hey… Read More

  • 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
