Fallout 3 DRM won’t be that bad

Fallout 3 DRM won’t be that bad

Fallout 3 is a game that is seriously anticipated. And while it used to only be available on PCs, it will now, for the first time, be available on the Xbox 360 as well. That development spells DRM issues and Bethesda developer, Pete Hines attempted to set the record straight during an interview with Shack News.

Pre-order Fallout 3 and get a fake 45

Pre-order Fallout 3 and get a fake 45

Is there really any reason to pre-order most games except to get yourself some swag? I rarely have trouble finding a game on release day unless it's something crazy-big, and even then it usually just takes wandering into Walmart or Meijer and grabbing it. So what crazy free goodies are you going to get for pre-ordering Fallout 3 at GameStop? You'll be getting 5 free tracks from the game.

No demo coming for Fallout 3

No demo coming for Fallout 3

When you know that a major game will be coming out, you'll usually wait around for a demo to come out a short while before the actual game does. You'll usually get enough of a taste of the game to leave you wanting more, and thus play it over and over. However, if you're hoping for a demo of Fallout 3, you can stop, because it isn't happening.

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

When you play a game, you expect there to be one ending. (No, throwing your controller through the TV in frustration does not count as an ending). Sure, some games do give you a chance to experience different endings based on the choices you make throughout the game. However, even in these games you're limited to a few at best. Not Fallout 3 though, it's got more ways to finish than you can shake a stick at.

According to a recent podcast with Bethesda's Todd Howard, there are more than 200 possible endings. No, that's not a typo, there really are two zeros on that number.

Interplay Finally Looking To Produce Fallout Online

Interplay Finally Looking To Produce Fallout Online

Now all they need is the money. So far they have taken nearly 6 years to go from being $59 million in debt, to being only $3 million in debt, which is apparently an acceptably enough amount to start looking for investors in their last gambit.

Apparently a lot of the money that went towards paying off their debts came from Bethesda when they bought all of the Fallout intellectual property, with one exception, Fallout Online. Now they are begging, borrowing, and stealing to get the dough to make an MMOG or massive multiplayer online game.

HP WebOS class action settlement reached

HP WebOS class action settlement reached

The saga of WebOS has been running for years now. Palm was the first to roll out the OS as an attempt to compete with Apple and Google in the smartphone wars. Eventually Palm failed and HP bought the OS and Palm as a whole. That purchase of Palm and WebOS turned out to be very bad for HP with the company losing money in major fashion when its aspirations failed and it too sold off WebOS to another firm.

Apple and Google reported to be pulling down games on the basis of “Flappy” names

Like a zombie that refuses to die, Flappy Bird has still been seeing some activity days after its official demise thanks to imitations and scams proliferating on the Internet. Now it seems that Google and Apple are finally putting an axe to those clones by rejecting or even removing games from iTunes App Store and Google Play Store if they have the word "Flappy" in their name.

BlackPeopleMeet PR agency IAC “parts ways with” Sacco for racist tweet

BlackPeopleMeet PR agency IAC “parts ways with” Sacco for racist tweet

A PR agency that handles CollegeHumor, OkCupid, the Daily Beast, Vimeo and other high-profile web properties has "parted ways with" a corporate communications officer over a tweet deemed offensive by the company and some of the grassroots public. The tweet came from one Justine Sacco's personal account, not a company account. It informed her followers that she was about to fly to Africa, commented on the AIDS epidemic on that continent -- and implied that she thought her being white inoculated her against the deadly disease.
