A New World Record For Beating Fallout 3 Fast

The average player probably spends an hour in Fallout 3 simply creating a character. Speedrunner Rydou on the other hand manages to blaze through the entirety of the game in an astounding 18 minutes and 53 seconds. God damn. » 3/25/15 2:30pm Wednesday 2:30pm

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. » 3/14/15 5:00pm 3/14/15 5:00pm

The Most Hardcore Game of Fallout: New Vegas Just Got More Hardcore

Guy Beats Fallout: New Vegas Without Ever Healing

After spending more than a thousand hours playing Fallout: New Vegas, a YouTuber called Many A True Nerd decided to do one more run of the game. But it wouldn't be any old type of playthrough. This run would be a challenge, even for a Fallout master that knows the game like the back of his hand. » 2/25/15 2:30pm 2/25/15 2:30pm

Fallout Should Always Be Played On An Old Black & White TV Set

Fallout is sort of anchored in that retrofuturist 1950s post-war culture thing and I can't think of a single thing that represents that culture more than the humble black and white television. » 2/12/15 9:00pm 2/12/15 9:00pm

Dying Light Isn't A New Fallout, But It'll Do For Now

Truth be told, I wasn't expecting much out of open-world zombie-slugger Dying Light. I didn't care for its predecessor, Dead Island, and I figured this one would be more of the same—but with sweet parkour moves. And yet, here I am, hopelessly addicted. I blame Fallout 3, one of my favorite games of all time. » 2/09/15 7:35pm 2/09/15 7:35pm

The Fallout Vaults That Performed Messed Up Cloning Experiments

Vaults in Fallout are no strangers to horrific experiment—according to the lore, that's why vaults exist in the first place. Vaults were constructed for social experiments, the likes of which couldn't be carried out in any other circumstance. » 1/23/15 4:00pm 1/23/15 4:00pm

Skyrim Vs Fallout Battle Ends Gruesomely

People love pondering who'd win impossible fights. Superman vs Goku, Godzilla vs a Pacific Rim robot, my dad vs your dad. Finally, though, here's one we can actually watch: Fallout 3's main character vs Skyrim's Dovahkiin. » 1/20/15 6:15pm 1/20/15 6:15pm

Five Years Later, Fallout: New Vegas Is Still Getting Great Mods

Modding communities are odd. Some dogpile on a game, try to build Rome in a day, get discouraged/bored, and leave. Others stick with the same game for years, feeding it a steady diet of tweaks and changes, eventually transforming it into something entirely different. Fallout: New Vegas is the latter. » 1/15/15 9:04pm 1/15/15 9:04pm

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. » 12/21/14 5:00pm 12/21/14 5:00pm

The Most Random Game Of Fallout

If nothing else, I have to admire this Fallout: New Vegas player for his persistence. He's making every choice by rolling D20 dice. New Vegas is a huge game with countless dialogue options. That's, um—let me see, carry the several thousand—a megafuckton of real-life dice rolls. » 12/18/14 9:00pm 12/18/14 9:00pm

The Disturbing Cannibals of Fallout

In a messed-up world like Fallout, it's not surprising that some people would turn to cannibalism. Still, cannibals make for some of the more disturbing characters in the game. » 12/12/14 7:15pm 12/12/14 7:15pm

Man Turns Basement Into Fallout Vault For Birthday Party

VaultOfTheSix turned 30 last month, and to celebrate he turned his entire basement into one of the Vaults from the Fallout series. Yes, there was cosplay, and yes, there was cake. » 12/11/14 9:30pm 12/11/14 9:30pm

Fallout: New Vegas, As Told By Steam Reviews

Try Playing Fallout As The Doctor

You don't always have to wander the wastelands as a grizzled survivor of a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Sometimes you can play as a smartly-dressed, time-travelling British gentleman instead. » 12/01/14 6:30pm 12/01/14 6:30pm

Modders Are Turning Fallout: New Vegas Into A Whole New Game

Fallout: Lonestar isn't just any old Fallout: New Vegas mod. It might just be the most ambitious, coolest-looking Fallout mod currently in development. » 11/17/14 4:00pm 11/17/14 4:00pm

The Story Of Fallout 3's Most Evil Item

Everyone knows that things got bad in the Fallout universe when the bombs dropped. But even before that, it's been said that something... wrong was stirring. It all started with this book. » 11/14/14 8:40pm 11/14/14 8:40pm
