While there isn't much Fallout-related news to report, we've still rounded up a few minor news items for you to read. - IGN Middle East has published a list of features and improvements they'd like to see in a hypothetical (but very likely) Fallout 4. While IGN is popularly perceived as a lowbrow website, they seem to actually be very concerned about the game's writing, and dedicate it two items on the list ("A personal story" and "Better writing"): Better writing As much as I love Bethesda, I will be the first to admit that they don’t know how to create memorable characters. Fallout 3 absolutely nailed the world building, the freedom, the atmosphere, but the characters were as charismatic as a wet tissue. New Vegas on the other hand had far more memorable characters (Mr. House, anyone?), with interesting dialogue, fleshed out companions, and most of all, the dark humor. This made Fallout 3’s shortcomings all the more obvious in contrast. Fallout has always been about balancing the the doom and gloom of the wasteland with the black humor of its characters. Fallout 3 did have memorable characters like Fawkes and Three Dog, but these were few and far between. We don’t want a The Last of Us-type plot, but we would appreciate a few livelier cast of characters to accompany you while you Mad Max it up. - YouTube channel TheGebs24 has a video on the canceled Fallout Extreme. It's mostly a round-up of info that was already available, though apparently some of the devs that worked on the title were contacted and the video might be updated with their feedback in the near future: <center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ntEknFFEJJM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></center> - Finally, Kotaku has highlighted the work of a Reddit user who played Fallout: New Vegas on an old black & white TV. Surprisingly, the game is still largely playable on the positively ancient TV, and one might argue that this setup even enhances the atmosphere.
