    So, it turns out that article I posted earlier about the making of Fallout 1 was in fact the first article in a week-long series of articles covering Fallout to celebrate the anniversary, though they did not mention that in the first article.
    However, a new one just came out where they made note of this at the top:
    This one is about Fallout 2. Snippet:

    Huh, must be from a later version than the ones I played.

    The visual quality alone should tip you off that this isn't from the vanilla game.

    /edit: should have been a hint to the article writer as well.

    Of course, I was just wondering which mod it was from. :P
    Games journalists don't actually play games, especially not old ones.
    Besides, they don't seem too picky with their screenshots over there: https://www.pcgamesn.com/sites/default/files/fallout perks.png

    Love Fallout 2, but it's funny that they wanted to introduce the villain earlier and make him feel more like a character. I know who they're talking about, but I don't even remember his name right now. He was a dude in power armor? I cheesed him in the final fight? That's all I remember. I felt like I knew way more about the Master by the time I met him than I ever did about 2's villain. And I still remember most of that years later.
