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.

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.

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.

Microsoft reports on its Superfish hunting trip

Lenovo had a fish problem early this year, one that refused to die even when it was ignored. The Superfish adware fiasco left the world's biggest PC maker with mud on its face and an angry mob at its gates. While the scandal has seemingly died out, with Lenovo frantically moving to fix both the technical problems and PR fallout, not everyone is safe yet from the deadly fish.

Franken requested a response to his questions by December 15, and down to the deadline Uber has sent back a reply, saying it "welcomes the opportunity to respond".
