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.

<br>The 'Doom' franchise has long been hailed as the acclaimed forefather of the first person shooter. For quite some time games as established as 'Halo' were coined mere 'doom clones.' But after enough first person shooter gaming, the various communities deemed 'Doom' for what it's always been: the perfect final product of the FPS as a gaming category.</br>

<br>Or that this modernized rendition of 'Doom' (with the multiplayer option) is the undeniable, amped up badass older brother of 'Halo.' There's no getting around the fact that this trailer pushes the boundaries of screaming bloody madness.</br>

<br>As far as the cream of the multiplayer mode crop, 'freeze tag' stands out amongst the rest the pack. A mode of play, which involves two teams squared off in 'team deathmatch' like fashion, where every time anyone gets shot, they're essentially frozen thereafter. Only way a player can regain movement is to have a teammate post up next to them for a measured duration of time. Winning team simply enough is the team that freezes the entire other team.</br>

Bethesda! How you tease us!

In the most recent of their educational videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, the developer goes over the importance of Intelligence.

These have been a whole lot of fun to watch, but all they do is dangle the carrot in front of our eyes before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release.

Bethesda just keeps teasing us. In one way, we love it. But in another way, it just highlights how far away Fallout 4 seems.

This newest of the educational videos, which highlights the character building S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system lets you know what the deal is behind Charisma.

Tomorrow will be October, then it's just a quick 41 days until the release of Fallout 4.

We can make it, you guys.

We can make it.

Nov. 10 is soooo far away.

This super neat explainer shows off how the Pip Boy will detail character development and evolution. It looks like it will be quite a bit more complex and interactive than the system in Fallout 3.

It also looks like it's using quite a lot of resources from the free to play mobile game Fallout Shelter that Bethesda released in June.

Come on months, pass quickly already!



If you want to see more check out the educational videos that the developer has been dropping.

E is for Endurance.

Bethesda continues to explain the intricacies of its S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system with the third educational video that explains how important Endurance is in the wasteland.

You can watch the first here and the second right here.

Keep it up, Bethesda. You have our attention and soon you will have our money.

It just seems like suuuuch a long wait until the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.

Bethesda must realize this, which is why it introduced the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. educational video series to tray to satisfy our craving for the wasteland RPG. This time, the PIP boys are tackling Perception.

You can watch the first video, covering Strength, here.



Just keep making these videos, Bethesda. We'll keep watching them.

You'd think Bethesda would have plenty to do in the final weeks before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release, but the good guys and gals who are preparing the post-apocalyptic RPG also want to teach you about the game's systems.

This first video explores the Strength trait, or the S in S.P.E.C.I.A.L.. 

Enjoy!

Knowing that we are salivating for more Fallout 4 news in lieu of it's Nov. 1 release, developer Bethesda dropped some more information about what comes after that fateful launch on their company blog.

It's not really any big surprise that there will be DLC or that they will offer a season pass, but it's still neat to know.

We've always done a lot of DLC for our games. We love making them and you always ask us for more. To reward our most loyal fans, this time we'll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30. Since we're still hard at work on the game, we don't know what the actual DLC will be yet, but it will start coming early next year. Based on what we did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim, we know that it will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass.



They also discussed how the original game would continue to evolve.

We'll be doing regular free updates to the game, and like Skyrim, these will come with not just fixes, but new features. For Skyrim we added things like mounted combat, legendary mode, kill cams, visual enhancements and more. We'll work with all of you to figure out what new things you'd love to see added to Fallout 4, whether they are small tweaks or new features.

When Bethesda announced the surprise release of mobile, free to play game Fallout Shelter last June, they only released it for the iOS crowd, leaving Android smartphone users out in the wasteland.

Well that all ends Aug. 13, as the resource management/time sink/very addictive game comes to all devices running Android 4.1 and up.

It is updated with the most recent bug fixes and content and does not even pretend to apologize for all the time and money it will take from your life. There are far, far worse ways to wait for the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.

You can get it from the Google Play Store here.

You've already waited four years for a sequel to Skyrim and you'll have to wait a fair bit longer, if you can believe Bethesda's VP of Marketing Pete Hines.

Speaking to Dualshockers at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Hines laid out the current line of Bethesda Software, developer of Skyrim

Hines mentioned that he doesn't think we're close to hear about the next Elder Scrolls. Currently Bethesda is working on Fallout 4, and that takes the entire studio, which is 100% focused on it.

The Elder Scrolls Online just came out on consoles, and has DLC coming this year and into next year, and that's gonna be the Elder Scolls game Bethesda will be talking about for a while. Hines believes that it'll be a "very long time," before the team will talk about what they'll be work on after Fallout 4.



We can all rest assured that we'll have Fallout 4 to tide us over come Nov. 10. And we'll just satiate that desire by watching footage of the post-apocalyptic game to come.

Even if we have to go to PornHub to do it.

Fallout 4 comes to adult sites as leaked footage from Gamescom.

A new Fallout 4 video exists on the Internet, provided you're over 18 and don't have a problem going to a pr0n site.

Bethesda Software went to Gamescom last week in Cologne, Germany and showed off some footage of the upcoming RPG sequel. However, what they showed of the anticipated title was only behind closed doors and no one should have captured any of the private showing.

One enterprising person decided to get a hold of that footage, but Bethesda kept using copyright claims to remove it from YouTube and other sites, according to Kotaku.

In response, fans turned to other means of sharing the footage, such as file-hosting sites. These, too, sometimes got hosed—or got overloaded with requests, making it difficult to watch the footage. And so Fallout fans have turned to more unorthodox video hosting services, like Pornhub (WARNING, obviously!!) to host said Fallout 4 footage. Titled 'HIDDEN CAMERA SHOWS AUDIENCE TEASED BY BIG BUTT MAN IN TIGHTS LIVE,' the seven-minute-long video showcases off-camera footage of Fallout 4. Hilariously, it's tagged under categories like 'big ass' 'POV' and 'homemade.'





If you are so inclined, and of age, you can watch the footage here. But this link goes to an adult site, so get ready for all the gratuitous ads that promise to increase your ahem desirability...

The quality is terrible and the person describing the gameplay speaks only in German, but if you simply can't wait to see more of what's in store in devastated future Boston and the wasteland around it, click on you brave soul.

video game news fallout 4 ridiculous bottle cap pre order

Redditor GatorMacheteJr loves Fallout more than you do.  Don't feel threatened, dude loves Fallout more than any of us.  This brave vault dweller collected a grand total of 2,240 bottle caps (around 11 lbs) over the last seven and a half years, and then had the stones to send those to Bethesda as payment for a Fallout 4 pre-order. 



His gamble (and very expensive shipping bill) paid off, because he's receiving a copy of the game.  According to an email he got from Bethesda, since he was the first person to try this method of payment, they'd honor it (read: don't get any ideas, rest of the internet!).  Well done, sir!
