This has been a busy week for the wiki, a lot of ideas have come up, changes that are on going and other projects in the works.

In short mini-modding is a declaration that something is, or is not within the rules. Key phrases that indicate someone is mini-modding include:

- "You shouldn't be doing"
- I am
This can also extend to certain actions, like trying to tease information out of individuals of wrong doing.

- The mini-modder is told it is not their place to call:
- This can lead to arguments and fights

- The mini-modder is left looking rather sheepish.

Once again, it is gamers favourite time of year to flock to Steam and see what is is up for sale. Courtesy of The Courier NCR for life spotting Fallout: New Vegas for $2.50, I have done a little bit of investigating and the entire Fallout Series is on sale until the 5th of July.
All base games* are reduced by 75% and expansion packs are cut in price by 40%. The best deal by fair listed is the Fallout Bundle, which includes Fallout 1 and 2, Tactics, the Fallout 3 Game of the Year, Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition, and Fallout 4 and its Season Pass for just over USD $60.00.
If you want to fix your back catalogue or have been waiting for a good deal on Wastleland Workshop, now would certainly be the time to consider buying.Read more >
Bethesda have just released an email advertising that Fallout 4 will be free to play this weekend (25th-28th May) only. For anyone who has a steam account or Xbox Gold, now would be a good time to have a play around and pick the game and its downloadable content up for up to 67% off.
Update 05/26/2017: I have now seen the Steam offer and can confirm that Fallout 4 is 67% off and the Season pass has been reduced to 40%. Individual DLC packs have not been reduced and remain at full retail price. If I get confirmation of the Xbox prices I will update these as well.
Update 05/27/2017: Apologies for the comments being disabled, not sure how/why that happened, but they are now open again.Read more >
