The greatest tragedy in my life is that I am allergic to cats. I’d normally supplant my desire for cat ownership by getting one in a video game, but, a cursory look at the mods on Nexus shows me that video game cats in popular games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 aren’t quite right.

This replica of a Fallout 4 Tesla Rifle, by Wasted Props, doesn’t just look like the real (well, you know) thing. It spins and “charges” like it as well.
Ever wonder what Fallout: New Vegas would look like in in a newer engine? One modder is trying to make that fantasy into a reality, and the progress is sweet.

It’s been said that video games are all smoke-and-mirrors—elaborate feats of code and trickery that imply possibilities far greater than what you’re actually able to do. Sometimes, though, the truth is much stranger. Sometimes the truth is radios powered by invisible cats.
If you visualize the depth buffer of a game (stay with me), you can make it look like the game is running in black & white, ala Limbo.
In a video from December 30, 2016, CNN used footage from Fallout’s hacking mini-game as B-roll to illustrate reports of recent, real-life hacks committed by the Russian government.
