Fallout 4: The Kotaku Review

In the late 20th century, people hoped that the new millennium would usher in an age of promise: hoverboards, flying cars, personal robots, and the like. That future, the one that everyone predicted, never quite came to pass. Not in the way we thought it would, anyway.

The Games I've Shared With My Dad

It seems a bit strange to do things this way this week, but my Dad is sick. Very sick, as a matter of fact to the point where (I’ve been informed) he was on the verge of being clinically dead the day PAX started.

I didn’t actually know at the time and was only informed of this fact yesterday morning, so understandably I’ve had family on the mind. And given that this regular feature was coming up, the only thing I could think about was the few memories I’ve shared with my Dad over video games.

The Relentless Champions Of Classic Fallout 

For years, No Mutants Allowed, a news site and message board, hung in a happy obscurity. It’s the largest Fallout fansite on the internet and was founded back in the late ’90s under the shadow of the first two games in the franchise.

The First Five Minutes Of Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

With the fourth numbered instalment on the way it’s the perfect time to take a short trip into the past, to an era when Fallout games needed lengthy explainer sub-titles and a man could proudly kill a rat by shooting it in the crotch.

Talking Toasters, Pop Rocks And Other Fun Stuff Cut From Fallout 2

The sequel to Interplay’s legendary post-apocalyptic role-playing game was bigger and badder than the original Fallout, which translates into more space on the cutting room floor for discarded storylines, abandoned features, unrealized non-player characters and a fully-upgradeable, completely drive-able vehicle.

Humanoid Raccoons, Supermutant Invasions And Other Cut Fallout Content

I would have loved the original Fallout so much more had the planned mutant raccoon faction made it into the game. VG Facts’ “Leftovers” series looks at the S’lanter faction, extra maps, the planned Supermutant invasion and other bits left out of the post-apocalyptic classic.

Descent Is Now On Steam. Go, Go, Go.

In 1995, a video game was released that was unlike anything else that had ever come before it. And, really, anything released since.

Classic Fallout Games Pulled From Online Stores, Will Return Soon

It’s — you guessed it — a legal issue. It all started with a news post on Good Old Games, which announced the removal of Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics from the site’s catalogue. Shortly after, the trio of post-apocalyptic RPGs was “removed” (the actual pages stayed, with only the buy links being deactivated) from Steam as well.

Classic PC Franchise Quietly Purchased For $7500

Freespace was the world’s last great space combat series, a genre you may not even be aware of if you’re under the age of 20. Yet it’s still quite active today; the amazing Battlestar Galactica mod Diaspora is built on Freespace 2’s engine.

What The Hell Is Up With The New Black Isle?

Black Isle was one of the great game studios of its era, but the the visionary company that existed in the ’90s and early oughts is no more, and its revival is something else entirely — something that seems more sketchy every day.
