Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > 15 years of Fallout - 30 September 2012

Hi Folks, plan to promote this a bit more in the next news post but in the meantime....

The Raspy voice bitEdit

In September 30 1997 a man walked into a video game store. He sees a strange box (yes, video games came in boxes back then) not shaped like the others, red in colour with a picture of a futuristic looking helmet on the cover. Eventually he got tired of the game, sold it to a second hand gaming store, where I gleefully snapped it up after being introudced to the "best game ever" previously by a friend...

15 years later, although the game may have changed a lot, the graphics more shiny, all the characters are now voiced and turns like pre war civilization remain but a treasured memory; yet one thing remains the same... War, war never changes.

The EventEdit

15 years of Fallout shouldn't be allowed to pass by without some kind of marking. I'm looking for ideas for events, promotions, competitions, etc that we can run to mark the anniversary. They can be small simple things, or big things.

I plan on talking with Wikia to see if we can get them involved... but in the meantime, what do you the community think could be a good idea. If you have one, please add it here so we can all comment on it and see what we can arrange... Agent c (talk) 19:55, July 16, 2012 (UTC)


The HoleEdit

For the Hole, I'm thinking about running a short "Villans" mini series (to temporarily replace the current championship) in the week prior, and the week of the anniversary. We'd run a double heat on the 25th with 4 selected end game villans (including The Master, Lanius, General Jing-Wei and crowd favorite Frank Horrigan) with the final the following week.

Comments (Hole)Edit

Great, but how about a double-Hole? To have the users more bloodshed fun when they see the fights. Energy X 09:41, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

Some sort of ContestEdit

Stay tuned for more details after I talk to a few people... Agent c (talk) 19:55, July 16, 2012 (UTC)


I think a SNM special is a MUST, including extra content (polls, challenges just for that day). Energy X 19:57, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Comments (SNM)Edit

Absolultely! Agent c (talk) 16:38, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Wikia GamesEdit

I've spoken to George @ Wikia games who are eager not to let this pass by. He's going to use his connections to see what devs we may be able to get involved, and some contest ideas. He's suggested we run a special period 2 weeks before, and 2 weeks after. Agent c (talk) 16:38, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Comments (Wikia)Edit

Twitter Feed Launch and Social media sitesEdit

At the moment, the Twitter Feed linked to on the Wiki links to Ausir's. I'm hoping to launch the official Nukapedia Twitter at the start of the anniversary period. We'll see what we can do about the Facebook and Google+ links as well. Agent c (talk) 16:38, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Comments (For the whole event)Edit

hey guys! Well i was just trying to think of something and then i remembered a while back that a majority of the video-game streamers did a big stream-a-thon for Kingdoms of Amalur:reckoning and thought maybe we could try to get in contact with streamers and streaming sites in order to do the same thing for the fallout games!
