New Fallout 4 content!

…For Minecraft: …Minecraft is adding a Fallout 4 mash up pack to consoles “soon”. The details mention “the coming days” so you probably won’t be waiting too long for the, wait for it, ablockalypse.”  Fortunately or unfortunately as you might see it, that’s apparently just for consoles.

Three hours ago he committed to not drinking today, still in recovery from a 12-drink Thursday bender while nursing an ear infection. Yet here we are, embracing heavy-handed pours of Belvedere while surveying the workers in adjacent high-rises hacking away at their keyboards.

“He looks worried,” says Persson, pointing to a man in a building across the street rubbing his face and staring blankly into a computer screen.

I mean, you can build all this stuff, but you’re the only one living there?  Kind of oppressive, in its way.
