New RPG Is A Love Letter To Fallout, XCOM & FTL

It’s called Bedlam, and it’s a post-apocalyptic RPG with Fallout‘s ramshackle vibe, XCOM-style gameplay and gorgeously detailed animated art. There’s also permadeath, marauders, mutants and cyborgs. I like all of those things!


My First 20 Hours With Wasteland 2

“Forsaken by his people, he strode into the wasteland,” the narrator intones in the intro to Fallout 2. 16 years later, and creator Brian Fargo has delivered that promise anew in a very literal way: by making Wasteland 2, a spiritual successor to his Fallout games that’s also a… sequel to their predecessor.

A Fallout MMO That You Can Play Very Soon

Interplay’s Fallout MMO might have been nuked into oblivion by a lengthy legal battle that Bethesda ultimately won, but that doesn’t mean all hope for massive scale wasteland shenanigans is lost. FOnline: Ashes of Phoenix is a free fanmade Fallout MMO coming next week, and it certainly looks the part.


The Strangest Thing That Didn't Happen In Fallout: New Vegas

The Wild Wasteland perk lets you see some bonkers stuff in Fallout, but it never quite matches the absurdity of this New Vegas “easter egg”.


Why You Should Care About Wasteland 2

“There was this one moment in Fallout 3, when I came across a prisoner at some raider camp,” I said. “She was still tied up, but all the raiders were gone. Maybe they were dead or something, I don’t know. The game gave me a choice: I could take her supplies and leave her there, or set her free.”
