IGN posted some new information from Quakecon 2015. There may also be leaked audio of the Fallout 4 demo according to Reddit.

I'll share more information as it comes along.

In other news. Fallout Shelter is coming to Android August 13th.


LOOTING: Looting will be in real time, no pause whatsoever. It'll be a little window you can scroll through.

NAMES: The 1000 Names on the list will also be names focused on levity; It'll be unserious some of them, like Mr. Fuckface!

CITIES: A Bit of Diamond City was shown (Concept Art). Some of the Attendees say that they saw it were covered in snow, which'll mean there may be snow. The gameplay were located in Lexington!

DIALOGUE: Dialogue will be incredibly flexible: It'll be able to have a conversation with 2 other people at same time, like a conversation in a group.

COMPANIONS: Companions confirmed is Piper (A girl character, and no she's not that hot.) Located in Diamond City, Mr. Handy (A Robot like Codsworth), Preston Garvey (The leader of the Minutemen, or sort of). There'll also be relationships! No matter the gender you are, you can always be a couple with a boy or a girl.

PIP-BOY: When you look at the Pip-Boy, the game will pause. Even in combat of course. Inventory's also now easier to get to, as there's a quick select screen for throwing grenades and using stimpaks, etc. And this will not pause the game.

ANIMATIONS: Animations will now appear when you're using Meds, such as Stimpak, where you'll be bursting it into your chest. There are a lot of different animations, and they're way more detailed than before, even Dogmeat has a ton of little detailed animations for everything he does. AI will now also have the feature of jumping and climbin some obstacles, and they jumped through the window in the show.

KARMA/REPUTATION: There'll be procedural reactions to you, based of your reputation and Karma, so Karma will get it's respect in the game.

WEAPONS: Nothing really special of what we've seen whatsoever. There was an Automatic Plasma Rifle, but not really anything else. You can also find modified weapons in the Wasteland, and this may depend on your luck how modified it is. You can also melee with your weapon now, even if there's not a bayonet attached to your weapon!

PERKS/PERKS UI: Looked like a Jeopardy Board says some: 7 Categories and 10 Rows sat after increasingly better perks, what seen that were new was Intimidation and Attack Dog! Perks will also be depend on your
S.P.E.C.I.A.L, For example: the higher your Perception, then earlier on you'll get access to a perk dedicated to Perception.

GHOULS: Ghouls has changed a lot now, so it feels like they've changed character heavily (when you're comparing FO3 AND FO:NV): They're walking differently, like they've got some mentally impairing disorder, and the animations looks pretty fluid.

LEGENDARY: Many other enemies and such will be legendary, even human-like creatures, such as Ghouls.

BEHEMOTHS: Some Behemoths were unquestionably bigger than the one in the trailer. Some even say as big as they were in Fallout 3.

RECORDED?: It's being doubted, as they had pretty good security in the room.

HACKING: Nothing special to talk about, closely at being the same as in the third dimensional games of Fallout.

BOOKS: (Some) Books are now actually readable, like Grognak The Barbarian, with different issues!

SKILLS: No such thing anymore, and will be replaced with Perks, and it's not a disappointment calmly said.

Bethesda has announced a collection of all the Fallout games ever released for PC, titled Fallout Anthology. This limited collection will be released on September 29th in North America and October 2nd in Europe, and will come in a package modeled after a Fat Man mini nuke. Both Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas will come packaged with all the DLC released for the games, and the packaging will apparently also include a space for Fallout 4's disc.

US actor Alex Rocco, best known for his role of Moe Greene in The Godfather has died of cancer aged 79.

During his 50 year career he racked up an impressive 167 acting credits(film, TV and one video game) according to IMDB. In Fallout: New Vegas he voiced Big Sal the right hand man of the Omertas leader Nero. Big Sal is a critical part of the side quest of How Little We Know. You may also know his work from The Simpsons where he voiced Roger Meyers Jr. the chairman of Itchy & Scratchy International in three memorable episodes.

Two tasty news tidbits for your viewing pleasure.

brings us this article about Fallout Shelter for iOS, on the account of it making over $5 million in micro-transactions in a couple of weeks. A short review of the game is included, which makes some fairly good points about the viability of mobile gaming in relation to AAA titles.

Game Rant shares much of the same news, but also adds that Gamescom will be the next chance to see Fallout 4 in action. We can expect to see that in August. Most likely with news about the Android version of Fallout Shelter.

Bethesda sure does know how to rake in the caps.

Bethesda has added a couple of videos to their YouTube channel showing E3 Fallout 4 footage. There is no new footage but these videos are the raw videos that were presented at E3. So no crowd reactions, cuts to the convention stage or Bethesda commentary.

First up is the 'Gameplay Exploration' video from the Xbox E3 2015 Briefing. It show some combat with raiders, V.A.T.S use and power armor:

Second is the 'Combat Gameplay Compilation' from the Bethesda 2015 E3 Showcase. This montage was the last Fallout 4 footage from Bethesda's E3 Fallout 4 show:

For the second time in its history (as far as I remember, at least) No Mutants Allowed has been the focus of some game journalism. Over at Kotaku, Luke Winke talked to a few NMA regulars (mostly me and The Dopamine Cleric), looked through the forums, and wrote up a pretty good article on NMA's place in the Fallout fandom.

Sean says his favorite period in No Mutants Allowed was after Fallout 2 but before Fallout 3.During that stretch, the Fallout license was tangled up, its future was up in the air. That all changed on June 5, 2007, when the first trailer for Fallout 3 was released.
“At the time I was giving them the benefit of the doubt,” Sean said, “but there was some heated debate in the community. ‘Bethesda couldn’t make a game to save their life!’ and so on and so forth. I held out until I saw the preliminary artwork. It was very Battlestar Galactica, and it just wasn’t what Fallout was about. It was dark and grim, and I was like ‘oh, now I understand how they’re going to implement humor.’ They’re not going to try that sarcastic, subjective writer’s touch that earlier Fallouts had, it was just going to be dick jokes. And dick jokes are funny! But they aren’t Fallout.”

You can see some of the vitriol we spewed at Fallout 3 fans back in the day (no Roshambo quotes, though). But the article also captures the love we collectively feel for the first two Fallout games, and I think it does a good job of showing many of the reasons as to why Fallout 3 is a fundamentally different game from the first two installments. Give it a read!
