    If this was on Consoles, I could understand.
    While it wouldn't be for everyone, I'm pretty sure some People would lap up the chance to get 3 and New Vegas on current gen consoles, add 1,2 and Tactics for a nice little bonus and I guess you got yourself a pretty decent deal (relatively speaking).

    If this is PC exclusive however, then I find the collection rather pointless.
    1&2 are nearly always on sale. And picking them up for a decent price isn't too hard. Hell, if you played 76 last year, you would have got them for free.

    New Vegas and 3 are pretty cheap these days too.
    Meaning the only game this collection would be useful for is those want to play 4. And I doubt many People would pick up this collection being new to Fallout, so I have to ask, who is it for?

    3 and New Vegas do work on current gen consoles already I believe, at least they're backwards compatible on xbox. They may also come with a modest resolution increase. Even the original xbox Morrowind works on xbox one and comes with some extended graphics.

    It's 18+, that could mean this is uncensored. Children & Bloodpatch etc.

    I'd guess they're still censored, only a repack of games.
    Just didn't see a point for them doing a different file packing for this local exclusive release, especially it's for UK/Germany.

    Doesn't make much more sense in German. They just took parts from the Fallout 4 and New Vegas blurbs and put them through Google translate, which explains the translation of Wasteland to "Ödland" (just missing the Umlaut)

    Nah. Fallout 3, NV and 4 are USK 18, which makes the whole collection USK 18.

    Strange enough I feel like Odland makes more sense considering how weird the game is.

    I'm confused as to how this is a cash grab. Companies release bundles and anthologies all the time. This is probably a great time to get into Fallout with all the games except Fallout 4 Online in one go

    I hate when game companies just re package everything and sell it back to you. Like most people dont have these games already.
    Just make a Steam Bundle if you wanna sell these games in a pack at the same price why make a physical release?
    Because there always needs to be a way to cash In, right?

    I bet they didn't even fix Fallout 3 to work "out of the box" in Windows 10, before packing it in this Collection. :lmao:
