Featured article
An electromagnetic pulse, commonly abbreviated to EMP, is a burst of strong electromagnetic energy. An EMP can be generated in numerous ways, from industrial accidents to specially-designed generators. However, EMPs are best known from their first documented source: nuclear weapons. As the primary effect of an electromagnetic pulse is the desctrucion of electronic elements, there are some weapons that generate it, used primarily against various robots. These include the pulse grenades and the pulse rifle prototype developed by the Reaver Movement. While similarly named, the YK32 pulse pistol and YK42B pulse rifle are not EMP weapons but generate an electrical pulse effective also against living targets.
[edit]Did you know...

... that only a single Ballistic Orbital Missile Base survived until 2253?

... that you needed to sign a special liability waiver to watch the T-51b power armor presentation at the Museum of Technology?

... that before the Great War the United States reformed from 50 states into 13 commonwealths?

... that John Carmack of id Software would want to someday work on a Fallout iPhone game?

... that Obsidian Entertainment was formed by some former Black Isle Studios employees?

... that the Gun Runner gunsmiths in Fallout: New Vegas resemble three main characters of the TV-series Mythbusters?

Bethesda Expands into Austin
By Agent c

Some news from Bethesda today. The headline of their news release says they've "expanded" into Austin, however, all is not as it seems.

What is now Bethesda Games Studios Austin was yesterday known as "Battlecry Studios", a subsidary of Zenimax Media LLC. For those of you who need a refresher on the Zenimax empire, Zenimax owns publisher Bethesda Softworks, who in turn owns Bethesda Games Studios. So rather than a new studio, this is more than a rebranding.
