Yes, there is Fallout news

But not the news you expect
Boxart
Shout out to Gamebanshee who noticed a few familiar names in the latest ESRB rankings… Fallout 1 2 and Tactics. As you may remember, Interplay lost the rights to sell those games on December 31 2013, and since have been absent from the Steam and GOG store… This could be a sign of their immeient return, as foretold in The Elder Scrolls by Pete Hines, VP of Marketing at Bethesda some time ago.

Dateline: Rockville, MD

But not the news you expect
BOSBag
New from the Bethesda store… This is probably their prettiest bag to date.


$US58 will get you this baby. The Euro-Beth-Store is starved for stock, and is back to just the 3 rather crappy looking shirts.

News from the wastes

Wasteland 2 gets an upgrade
The guys at InXile are still tweaking away Wasteland 2’s UI. Here’s their changes to the Dialog UI. WastelandimprovedUI

Reneé Auberjonous sanctioned

Water Sanction
Reneé has been hard at work filming and at conventions (hence the delay getting back with your questions)… Instead Here’s a sneak peak of some of his upcoming work that sees him play a corporate CEO sitting on a large supply of water in an ever drying world (Hey, haven’t I played that game before?)

Relic of the war that wasn't

Floppy Jaloppy
Many of you have probably never seen a floppy disc, and if you have it was probably a 3.5 inch, or maybe for the slightly older of you, like me, you might remember the 5.25 inches...

If you saw CBS's 60 minutes this week, you might have been shocked to see some 8 inch floppy disks, and even more shocked to see that they're still used in the US military's Miniuteman nuclear systems.

I suppose using antique hardware is one way to make sure you don't get hacked... You might remember the Iranian nuclear project was stymied by a virus uploaded to centrifugal control systems via USB sticks... Cant exactly do that on these machines. Even if you can find an 8 inch disk to put your virus on, they only hold 1 megabyte each.
