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.

Can you blame us though? Perfectly proportioned, and eager to abide by your every command. Who would've thought replacing Codsworth's typical thrusters with Assaultron's legs could've struck such an impact on dat aesthetic appeal?

Fallout 4 Gamers Are Forging Codsworth into a Full-Fledged Demonic Robo Monster in the New DLC

If you made it this far you probably already know that Fallout 4's newest Automatron DLC is a shining proclamation to the power of a well-armed robot army. It comes as no surprise then that you now have the chance to outfit your trusty robo companion Codsworth in an absurdly diversified number of ways.

How's your vault doing? Hit by any radroaches lately?

At least some of your vaults must be thriving, because the free to play mobile game Fallout Shelter made over five million dollars in its first two weeks on the market. It even managed to free us from the tyranny of Candy Crush in the top 3 iOS apps list.

Surprised by its success? So is Bethesda; Fallout Shelter was meant to be marketing for Fallout 4, not a money making Behemoth. According to Fallout 4 director Tom Howard, "The main thing it has done is give us more faith that the gaming audience is enormous, and they don’t care what device they’re playing on," so don't be surprised to see more mobile games in the future.

If you're an Android user who's pissed you haven't been able to get your hands on Fallout Shelter, worry not, relief is coming; they're working on an Android version to be released soon.

Here's the Recap of All the Highlights From Bethesda's E3 Showcase

It was a highlight-packed showcase with dozens of awesome moments that made the crowd cheer. DOOM and Dishonored 2 made appearances, but the obvious star of the show was Fallout 4. To say we're hyped is the understatement of the century.

E3.

E3 never changes.

Actually it does, because this year marks the first year ever that Bethesda will be having its own conference at E3, and this year is all about everything Fallout 4! Tune in for new features, gameplay highlights, and all the latest news coming out of Bethesda regarding the most highly-anticipated game release of the year.

Speaking of releases, Bethesda should also be announcing the game's actual release date. Fingers crossed for 2015.

Fallout 4 has been officially confirmed with the arrival of this brand new trailer.  Watch the video above and follow a handsome pup through an all new, significantly more colorful wasteland.

Boston confirmed! That's the Paul Revere Monument. We also get a glimpse of the Old North End and Charleston.

Is it weird that I'm excited about all those people who are about to die horribly?  

The trailer brings loads of new stuff to see, but perhaps weirdest of all, the guy we assume is the player character has an audible line of dialogue!

Bethesda has confirmed that rumors circulating of a trademark filing for Fallout: Shadow of Boston are totally fake, not real, 100% a hoax. Last year we saw a leaked casting call for a Fallout game taking place in Boston, so perhaps that's where the cruel person behind this hoax got the idea. That said, you can still hold out hope that a Boston game is real, just not this Boston game.

The latest in the string of Fallout 4 teasers has brought us a message in morse code: It now bares the rather complex code of: "ZL/QRNE/FVFGRE./V'Z/URNQVAT/GB/GUR/VAFGVGHGR./TBQ/XABJF/JUNG/UNCCRARQ/GB/GUVF/CYNPR/ABJ./GUVF/BYQ/ONFGNEQ/JVYY/URYC/HF./UR/ZHFG/URYC/HF./--0321--" or, "MY DEAR SISTER.
