Bethesda has issued a cease and desist letter to the game Fortress Fallout for 'confusion' surrounding their use of the word 'Fallout' in their game title.  For reference, Fortress Fallout is a tower building mobile game, not at all similar to the Fallout series, but given the size of the company making it, they've got no choice but to find a new name rather than fight Bethesda on this one.  

You may remember Bethesda doing something similar to Mojang over the game Scrolls, but Mojang was lucky enough to win their case. As ridiculous as all of this is, if you're an indie developer, maybe just don't use anything remotely related to a Bethesda property in your game title; it's just not worth the risk.  Or, you know, just go all out and call your game The Elder Dishonored Rogue Warrior Fallout: New Scrolls.

What a time to be alive, right?..Apparently celeb teen angst finds its perfect home amidst the apocalypse.

The Jaden Smith Tweets mod takes the graffiti you can find in each of Left 4 Dead's safe rooms with some variation of Jaden 'Smithisms' which all honestly sound like some sort of conspiracy theory meets overentitled teenager meets 'I'm a first year philosophy undergrad who ain't cracked a book yet but know everything...'

Bethesda's put up a countdown timer for Fallout 4.  The timer will run out before this time tomorrow, so keep an eye out for the official announcement.  

Back in December, supposed casting documents for the game leaked, which placed the setting in Boston, with references to MIT and The Commonwealth.  I don't know about you, but I would love a Fallout with Boston accents!  Wherever Fallout 4 is set, you can count on one thing: war never changes.

For the sake of full disclosure I'm still exploring the original map from Fallout 4, and now Bethesda hits us with this galvanizing bit of news..a landmass in the Far Harbor DLC is slated to be bigger than Oblivion's biggest map (even though that game came out ages ago). Let the jaws hit the floor.

The biggest catch, or qualm rather, that I hold here is the fact Far Harbor will have less 'playable content' than Shivering Isles. Ah well, if anything we'll enjoy some better developed faction quests, more challenging creatures and dastardly dungeons and higher-level armor and weapons sets.


And the big 'ol bold news for Fallout 4 don't stop there, as I'm sure you know, survival mode hit PCs today alongside a new patch. Some of the notable takeaways with the new survival mode :


-Quicksaving and "almost" all autosaves are disabled; you will instead need to find a bed and sleep for at least an hour to save the game.


-Fast travel is disabled.


-You now deal more damage, but you also take more damage. Players can also further increase their damage with the new "Adrenaline" perk, Bethesda explained. Every five kills increases your Adrenaline rank, adding 5 percent each time for up to 50 percent damage at the max rank of 10.


-Combat is now "more strategic," as you will need to make use of block/parry to stay alive.


-Threats (outside of those added by a Recon scope) will not display on your compass; additionally, the distance at which areas of interest will show up has been "significantly shorted."


-You will also need to take care of yourself, staying hydrated, fed, and rested. Don't eat, drink, or sleep for a while and your health will deteriorate.


-Fatigue will affect your Action Points, meaning the more Fatigue you have, the less Action Points you'll have available for sprinting and using V.A.T.S.
