16 Improvements Fallout 4 Can Make For Settlement Building

Fallout 4 Settlement Improvement Workbench

When I heard the announcement of Fallout 4 coming out, I was understandably excited. I thoroughly enjoyed Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. When I saw Bethesda’s showcase of Fallout 4 at E3 I became concerned. I recognize certain things in games that I can end up losing myself in, and Fallout 4 had an awful lot of those things. All that junk I pick up is suddenly useful? ... Read More »

Fallout 4’s Dialogue Wheel – Short Answers That Make No Sense

Fallout 4 Dialogue Wheel

A great many people seemed to be upset that Fallout 4 was moving away from the more traditional “choose from a list of options” dialogue tree and instead going with a “dialogue wheel” of sorts. Conversations were now limited to a total of four responses at any one time. I can see how at first glance it might seem that this is ... Read More »

[Updated] New Vegas: Five Years on the Long Fifteen

Evening Over Goodsprings

It’s been five years since Bethesda Softworks published Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas, and with over one thousand hours of in-game experience (so sayeth Steam), you could perhaps say I’m slightly overqualified to cover the game’s anniversary.

18 Things Fallout Shelter Needs To Fix

Things Fallout Shelter Needs To Fix
