Well, Fallout: Cascadia looks interesting.

Fallout: Cascadia is going to be a fan expansion set in Seattle. It uses the Fallout 4 engine, but it seems to be drawing a lot of intellectual ideas from Fallout 3 and before. In particular they want to bring back S.P.E.C.I.A.L. (stat) checks, which is something that was only mildly used in Fallout 4 – and I’m actually a little surprised about that.

There’s a big team on this, so hopefully we’ll have another Falskaar (a similar project for Skyrim) on our hands.  Eventually.  This is probably going to be a while.

PS: I certainly hope that the Enclave is involved, somehow. I’m still convinced that they were originally going to be in Fallout 4, but then got turned into the Gunners.

NOW MY LONE WANDERER HAS A MOTORCYCLE.

HO HO HO

[Screenshot for when I get to it later]

…Yup, somebody finally figured out how to get a working motorcycle into Fallout 4. I’ve tested it out, and it’s functional: there’s some weirdness with the camera angles, and if you go too fast you end up driving on stuff that the game hasn’t rendered yet, which can be hilarious.  …But it works. It’s a goram motorcycle that you can drive, and that shows up on the map so that you can teleport to it again when you need to.  People have been clamoring for this and/or cars since the game came out, and it’s finally here.

So, hey, Fallout Nuka World is dropping.

This is not exactly the best time in the month for that, because I have deadlines over the next two days – but, hey, who asked me?  …Then again, this DLC is likely to interfere with my usual Queen of the Girl Scouts play style, so I may be not as involved. I do have to remind myself that there are people who missed the old karma system from Fallout 3

 

[UPDATE] I may end up getting something up my nose over the entire slave collar thing. I have a problem with stuff like that.

Fallout: Red Star.

This is apparently several years old, but it doesn’t matter.  It’s very good and I wouldn’t understand it all if I hadn’t been playing Fallout New Vegas for the last month. Still, the production values on this are seriously impressive.

So, recommend me some Fallout 3/New Vegas mods.

Note: I don’t want to make the games harder, I don’t want to destroy my frame rate, and I do like my surroundings just a little less dead and desolate. With all that in mind: suggestions welcome. Fallout 3‘s habit of long distances between fast-travel points is particularly annoying, as is the pre-4 version of VATS.  But I gather that I’m not the first to say those things.

Hey, there’s a Bethesda sale going on over at Steam.

40% off a bunch of titles, including Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.  I’ve been meaning to grab both, so: cool. The sale’s also happening on Amazon, so feel free to click those links. Also: if you haven’t grabbed Skyrim yet, twenty-five bucks for the whole shebang is frankly a steal.

In the Mail: Fallout: The Hot War and Bloodshift.

Two books that don’t really go well together, or indeed together at all: but apparently Amazon decided to toss the two items together and deliver them at the same time.  Which is fine. Efficient, even.

First look at Fallout: Vault-Tec Workshop on Tuesday.

I might actually watch this, because I’m curious about whether this is going to get integrated into the main Fallout game.  Also, where it’s going to get integrated.  There are a couple of places on the map where it’d be useful to have a settlement, particularly if you’re playing Survival Mode which I have no intention of doing any time soon.  I find that waiting to buy combat damage upgrades is giving me all the workout that I need, really… (more…)

The Bethesda #E3 Fallout/Skyrim presentation (Console Skyrim users, take note).

Executive summary: Two workshop expansions (armor/weapon racks and I don’t care about the rest, and build your own Vault because why the heck not?), a let’s-dance-around-the-Mouse’s-lawyers DLC (‘Nuka World’), something about Fallout Shelter yadda yadda yadda, and… remastered Skyrim.

The Silver Shroud Quest for Fallout 4.

Not quite my play-through, but fairly close.  Worth. Every. Second.

Fallout Flu.

Turns out the world is a lot less crapsack when you have energy weapons. And is that not true in real life, as well? Plus, I figured out that you’re supposed to punch the Q button in combat and then line up your goram shots. My die-to-not-die ratio corrected itself a good bit after I discovered that, let me tell you…
