The Fallout New Vegas… That wasn't

Craig Boone
just had my rifle with me. Just me. Against all of them, so... What else could I do?!Craig Boone?

When you were walking through the Mojavie, did you ever stop to consider maybe Craig Boone's voice was wrong?

Although Jason Marsden did a brilliant job of voicing Boone, Liam O'Brien recorded a number of Boone's lines but were never used. For your listening pleasure we include them for you below.

The Elder Scrolls Online - Pricing revealed
Bethesda Softworks
The Bethesda gang, like most of the worlds video game industry are in Cologne Germany for Gamescom, and are talking Elder Scrolls Online. Matt Firor talked to Gamestar (Germany) about the subscription model for the game.
We're thrilled that gamers are looking forward to diving into The Elder Scrolls Online and we've been working hard to deliver the game that fans want - one that's worthy of the Elder Scrolls name. Choosing the right business model is part of that. We are going with the subscription model for ESO.
We're building a game with the freedom to play - alone or with your friends - as much as you want. A game with meaningful and consistent content - one packed with hundreds of hours of gameplay that can be experienced right away and one that will be supported with premium customer support. Charging a flat monthly (or subscription) fee means that we will offer players the game we set out to make, and the one that fans want to play. Going with any other model meant that we would have to make sacrifices and changes we weren't willing to make.
The Elder Scrolls Online offers unlimited play for the first 30 days with the purchase of the game. The choice is yours to play as much as you want; hundreds of hours of content, PvP, etc - is all there for you to experience with the base purchase of the game. If you want to continue playing for hundreds of hours more after that first month you'll pay a flat fee for continued, unlimited access to the game.
We'll talk about further discounts, etc. later, but for now, we are very happy to finally announce our model. It's very simple - you pay once per month after the first 30 days and the entire game is available to you.


We'll go into details on this later, but the basic monthly charge will be $14.99/€12.99/£8.99 and expect some discounts if you buy multiple months at a time. We'll also support game time cards as well as a variety of payment methods.


New Jobs for Marcus?
Michael Dorn photo
Some interesting news from Michael Dorn (@akaWorf on Twitter) this week. Fallout fans fill of course remember him as Marcus in Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, and of course everyone else in the universe knows him as Mr Worf from Star Trek (apparently he's had more screen time in Star Trek than anyone else).

Firstly, we might soon see a return of Mr Worf - Apparently Mr Dorn has been in talks for some time with Paramount about a return of Star Trek to your TV screen. Speaking to the Huffington Post everyone's favourite FEV-enhanced-Klingon was quoted as saying:

"Last year there was interest and I talked to a couple producers and we actually had pitch meeting with Paramount and CBS, Business things got in the way in terms of the JJ Abrams movie coming out and CBS/Paramount and their relationship with JJ Abrams. I don't think they wanted to step on his toes by putting a new series on, but it's not dead yet. I've finished the script and hopefully someone will take a look at this and say 'we can do this."

But with any luck, Mr Dorn might find himself a little too busy to sit in prosthesis for hours on end, with the launch of the "Swallow your Bliss" kickstarter.

Swallow your Bliss promises to be "30 Rock meets Gordon Ramsay in stilettos" and "Sex, good eats and laughter (whilst playing golf)", going behind the scenes at a network cooking show. With Mr Dorn playing "Quentin" (surname to be determined by fundees) the director of the show within the show.

Other names involved include Chris Rich from Reeba/Murphy Brown/Boston Legal and Lisa Long from Modern Family/Shameless.

5% of all donations will also go to the charity "LA Mission". It is however a "Flexible funding" campaign, which means even if they don't reach their goal of $75,000 in 23 days the money will be taken (However they plan to make the pilot anyway with whatever is raised).

This facility would act as a regional government headquarters after the bombs had fallen.
