STASIS is a recently released isometric style point and click adventure game created by Chris Bischoff. Fallout was a big influence on Chris, even hiring Mark Morgan to create the soundtrack on STATIS, and as part of the game's promotion has produced a couple pieces of fanart showing what Fallout could look like today if the series was still in isometric style.

IGN rated STATIS 9/10 and had this to say:

You can check out STATIS at GOG or Steam:

Fallout-inspired, post-apocalyptic RPG Krai Mira is now on Steam Greenlight.
From the game's description box text thingy:


Krai Mira is a single player adventure that takes place on boundless steppes, radioactive swamps, distinctive settlements and grim mountain forests of the same-named island.

Scorched by the sun and hopelessly irradiated, the Earth is soaked in toxic waste and blood of its former masters. Those who remain are fighting to survive the endless and senseless struggle with the environment, and, inevitably, with themselves.

Inspired by original Fallout, Krai Mira also borrows some features from such games as Diablo and Commandos. Though we focus on the combat system you will also enjoy wandering around, exploring new locations, trading and performing quests in this post-apocalyptic world.

In development since 2013, the game could very well see its release next year.

Awesomely enough, there's a demo out there for you to check out.

At the end of 2013 the rights to publish Fallout 1, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics changed hands from Interplay to Bethesda. At that time the titles were pulled from Steam and GOG. In June of 2014 all three games returned to Steam but were absent from GOG. This disappointed many fans of GOG as Fallout was hosted there for over 5 years with all the extra content and configuration GOG provides. Until now Bethesda has not supported GOG as a digital distribution service and many were doubtful(myself included) if GOG would ever sell Fallout again. However GOG is full of Polish tenacity with the will to hunt down publishers and developers for the right to digitally distribute games and they have finally convinced Bethesda to come on board.

Today Metro posted an interview with Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, giving us an interesting look at how Bethesda operates. There are several statements which I'm sure our community will find amusing so be sure to check it out. There isn't a whole lot of new information about Fallout 4 which seems to be intentional. He did speak of the differences between Fallout 1 and 2 which I thought was interesting.

Polygon also announced a book featuring concept art from Fallout 4 appropriately named The Art of Fallout 4. A limited edition version will also be available on the Bethesda store. The Art of Fallout 4 will be available for purchase December 22nd.

Fallout Shelter has finally released on the Google Play Store, so Android users can take a shot at running their own Vault. Fallout Shelter is Free-to-Play though there are some in-game purchases which are optional. IGN gave the iOS version a relatively low score, so keep that in mind. The micro-transactions are supposedly less intrusive than most mobile titles, so it might be worth a look for Fallout fanatics. Kotaku shared a few tips for the iOS version which should help those looking for assistance.

Yesterday Fallout 4 Footage taken from Gamescom was leaked on Youtube. Zenimax's copyright team was pretty fast in getting it taken down but this being the Internet it was downloaded off Youtube and put up everywhere including Pornhub(reasoning Zenimax wouldn't venture there).

The footage was taken discretely from an audience member and it is shaky, blurry, out of contrast, out of frame, has some guys head in the way for half the video and the other half is filmed between two people's shoulders. Only half of the Gamescom demo was uploaded and it is in German. Overall it is a garbage tier video and really isn't worth that much of a watch. However with Fallout 4 HYPE everyone has watched it.

Since it has been around 30 hours since the leak Zenimax seems content to let the pirated footage speak for Bethesda's work for the time being. When a low quality Suicide Squad trailer leaked at Comic-Con Warner Bros. choose to release the high quality trailer far sooner than they intended rather than allow a shoddy video to represent their product. It remains to be seen if Zenimax will follow that example. This does seem to be another nail in coffin of convention exclusive footage particularly in gaming with the rise of services like Twitch and Youtube fuelling a massive audience for live streamed events.
