Fallout 3: A Game Of Moments Fallout 3: A Game Of Moments

With the third installment of Fallout, Bethesda, who picked up the rights to the games from Interplay, made significant changes. The most noticeable ones were the introductions of a single, vast 3D environment and real-time combat. From a narrative point of view, though, the biggest alteration was the shift to…

Fallout Works Best in Urban Environments Fallout Works Best in Urban Environments

Many would agree with me when I say that Fallout New Vegas was an upgrade from Fallout 3. Those of you who have played the classic isometric Fallout games, know that New Vegas felt more like a Fallout game than Fallout 3. It brought back the dark humor that we know and love especially from Fallout 2. But there was one…

GOG Removes the Stench of Games for Windows Live off Fallout 3 GOG Removes the Stench of Games for Windows Live off Fallout 3

I woke up this morning, bummed. The news informed me that a certain world superpower decided that planet Earth isn’t worth looking after. Normally it’s news that only affects them, but things are getting very real now. It may not save the planet, but GOG released some news that made me completely forget that it’s hot…

In Remembrance of the Future Great War In Remembrance of the Future Great War

Today, in the future year 2077 of an (hopefully) alternative timeline, is the day the bombs were dropped across the globe. All nuclear-capable nations, primarily the United States, USSR, and China, laid waste to humanity and brought to us a radioactive world filled with raiders, radroaches, and Mama Murphy. Today,…

Fallout 4: Nuka World - That’s it?! Fallout 4: Nuka World - That’s it?!

It’s official, Nuka World will be the final piece of downloadable content that will be released for Fallout 4. It was mentioned at E3 2016, but after i had heard, i was in shock and frankly, in denial somewhat. I simply couldn’t believe that out of the 6 DLCs that were released, 3 were focused on additional items for…

So for the next 7 days I will be posting a Fallout-related article per day to bring the hype. Today’s article is about the radio stations of the…

Late to the Game: My First Foray Into Fallout 3 Late to the Game: My First Foray Into Fallout 3

The Fallout series is one that I have always heard great things about and with Fallout 4 being just over the horizon for its November 10th release, I thought I should give Fallout 3 a try. As a disclaimer, I never played any Fallout games except for their mobile app, Fallout Shelter. Going into the third game of the…

I Like Fallout 3 and New Vegas. But I Like Them For Different Reasons.

Fallout 3 and New Vegas are the games that made me want to be a PC gamer. I have recently built my own rig and I have finally got a working mod set up on both games. I have heavily modded both games by improving graphics, lighting, adding more content and using game play overhauls (FWE and Project Nevada respectively)…

I know this column was supposed to be about a dungeon designer game, but then this idea came to me in a … well, you know.

Get Pumped! (Summer 2015 edition) Get Pumped! (Summer 2015 edition)

Like many people, I carry around a lot of doubt, mostly aimed at myself. It’s difficult to fight through or argue against, especially since most arguments take place in my head and I can be extremely stubborn. So when I find reasons to get HELLA PUMPED, I cling to them like the lap bar of a roller coaster. Here’s what…

It’s time for another installment of A boy in Hell, A Fallout novella.

How This War of Mine Uses Choice and Consequence How This War of Mine Uses Choice and Consequence

Many games incorporate player choice, but none quite like This War of Mine. Let's see how 11 bit studios made possibly the best morality system by going against conventional design wisdom. Spoilers for This War of Mine and Far Cry 3.

Kotaku. Kotaku changes. A lot. Since the dawn of videogame blogging, when our ancestors first discovered the entertaining potential of blogs and videogames, Kotaku has changed in the name of everything: from a simple, insatiable desire for more page clicks to just because they can.
