RobCo Fun is a magazine in Fallout 4.

CharacteristicsEdit

Each issue of RobCo Fun read adds a unique holotape to the Sole Survivor's inventory. When used, the holotape plays a game based on a retro video game. The holotapes can be used at any time, provided they are in the Survivor's inventory, and can be played on either their Pip-Boy or on any terminal.

NotesEdit

  • The RobCo Fun magazines' holotapes are an example of Mise en abyme, as the player is playing a game, within a game.
  • Each RobCo Fun holotape is a reference to a real-life video game of the late 1970s–mid 1980s:
  • Unlike most other magazines, RobCo Fun issues respawn and can be collected an indefinite amount of times.
  • The Pipfall magazine's cover character is wearing a "101" shirt underneath his jacket. This is a nod to Fallout 3, in which the Lone Wanderer grows up in Vault 101.
  • The comic name and the fact it has a game inside it is a reference to Amiga Fun, a comic that gave away free games much like RobCo Fun does.
