    As part of their Winter Sale, GOG.com offers Fallout 1 and 2 as well as Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel for free for the next 48 hours. If somehow you don't have them yet, grab them!

    GOG has already been DDoSed.

    I actually bought them all off GOG a few weeks back. Still, I'm certainly telling my friends to get them. They have no excuse now.

    I heard that this is because GOG is losing the license to sell Fallout at the end of the month. Which might also mean I can't re-download it from them. Does anyone know if there is any truth to that?

    Bethesda is getting the distribution rights from Interplay this month. And GOG.COM doesn't have a deal with Bethesda(or Zenimax) so they will probably have to remove them from sale. As for your games you own, they should be safe:

    Get!

    For the same reason I bought them on Steam a few weeks ago. They might disappear for good soon..

    Alright, thanks. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to. Never know maybe Zenimax will come to their senses and start dealing with GOG.

    Do we know if Zenimax are going to support theses games on Steam or just bury them?

    I just got FO 1 and 2 for free! :D

    As I mentioned in my intro, I've yet to play either of them, so I'm looking forward to my winter break. :)

    Are there any important downloads for fo tactics?

    Is there a simplified/best way to edit portraits? All the in game portraits suck and damn I'm too dumb to fallow the directions I've been googeling.

    Not sure if you understood me but was talking about tactics in game portraits. Sorry if I bugged you, it seemed topical.

    Oh, you are talking about modding the game, sorry I misunderstood.

    I don't know if these are easier than what you've been finding, but we've got fairly short and sweet directions for changing your character portrait in the FAQ thread of the Tactics Modding Forum. If you've got questions the thread can't answer, the folks down there are pretty good at what they do.

    I don't know, according to Botkilla, over at GOGs user reviews, Fallout 2 is "Overall Waste of My Time"

    I think I might have to give these Fallout games a miss...
