  • Fallout Fans Make Own Vault for Post-Apocalyptic Birthday Party Fallout Fans Make Own Vault for Post-Apocalyptic Birthday PartyOne Fallout fan was turning 30, so he poured himself a stiff drink and reflected on the end of his youth, right? No! He and his wife rebuilt their garage door into an elaborate recreation of a Vault-Tec Vault Door, christened their home Vault 30, and had a huge birthday/Halloween party for all of their friends.

    The Vault Door was made out of particle board and cardboard, and was lovingly defaced with “Tunnel Snakes Rule!” graffiti after it was finished.

    Inside the couple set up computers showing Fallout Pip-Boy screens, a Vault Boy cake, Nukla Cola bottles, and other appropriate decorations and ...

  • Dwemer Spheres the Latest ESO Loyalty Reward Dwemer Spheres the Latest ESO Loyalty RewardThe latest goodie for players have stuck with The Elder Scrolls Online for six months is – another vanity pet. Huh.
    At least it’s a cool one! The Dwemer Sphere started rolling out (sorry, couldn’t resist) this week. It follows you around and does Dwemery stuff and that’s neat and all. But we’re hoping we can get something more substantial for our loyalty soon.
    ZeniMax rolled the loyalty program out in September with another vanity pet, the High Hrothgar Wraith.  The loyalty rewards are only for those that have the required cumulative subscription time, but don’t worry. You haven’t missed out if ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Still Coming to Consoles Elder Scrolls Online Still Coming to ConsolesZeniMax has gone so silent on the delayed PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online that you’d be forgiven for thinking that they’d been quietly canceled.
    But thanks to a plucky fan who can count to six and noticed that ZeniMax’s “six month” delay was nearly up with no news, we have a sign of life. ZeniMax responded on Twitter to say the console versions are still a thing.
    “Please rest assured: we are still hard at work on the console versions of #ESO and look forward to sharing more information soon!” the Tweet reads.
    No new date was given ...
  • Crossing Souls is an 80s-O-Rama RPG Crossing Souls is an 80s-O-Rama RPGhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNWP0oiOF74
    If you were an 80s kid, the new trailer for Devolver Digital’s upcoming RPG Crossing Souls is going to overload your visual cortex with a concentrated dose of nostalgia. Wicked headrush, man.
    The game follows five kids on an RPG adventure in 1986 California. As you can see, the unique art style evokes Earthbound as well as 1980s animation. They even put a super serious voice-over and some tape tracking issues in the trailer, a nice touch.
    Here’s how the developers described the storyline of the game in a press release:
    These remarkable kids will defy the laws of nature to interact between ...
  • A Quick Primer to the Gap Between Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition A Quick Primer to the Gap Between Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisitionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXX3omLY_JM
    Here’s a quick video showing how the end of Dragon Age II led to the beginning of Dragon Age: Inquisition. That whole mage rebellion thing went over even worse than you would have thought, and the situation at the beginning of the new game is a powder keg waiting to blow.
    Dragon Age: Inquisition is out Tuesday on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows.
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Now Available for Early Play on EA Access Dragon Age: Inquisition Now Available for Early Play on EA AccessDragon Age: Inquisition doesn’t come out until Tuesday. But you can play it right now if you meet certain conditions.
    First, you need an Xbox One. Second, you need a subscription to EA’s EA Access service, which is a $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year service that allows access to EA Vault titles and five days early access to upcoming EA games.
    If you can tick those off, you get to download the full Dragon Age: Inquisition game and play it for six hours. Yeah, that’s all you get, which is just getting started in what’s reportedly an 80 or ...

  • Elder Scrolls Online Update Squashes Bugs From Last Update Elder Scrolls Online Update Squashes Bugs From Last UpdateThe most recent patch to The Elder Scrolls Online was massive, adding a new city, Undaunted daily quests, new facial animation and tons of gameplay tweaks.
    So of course it introduced a few gremlins of its own. ZeniMax Online Studios tried to push out a patch yesterday addressing some of those. Unfortunately, there was an error in the process and an older version of the patch which didn’t contain all the fixes was applied. ZOS said in a blog post it intends to try again on Thursday morning to complete the patching process.
    Here are the full patch notes or the patch ...
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s DLC Will Be Free The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's DLC Will Be FreeYep. Even the horse armor.
    The Witcher 3 will have 16 pieces of DLC, according to CD Projekt Red. But you won’t have to pay for any of them. The free DLC packs will begin releasing the day after the game is out Feb. 25 and follow every week. The first two sets will include some new armor for Geralt (and his horse) and new beards and mustaches for Geralt (sorry horse), a new look for Yennefer of Vengenberg and new quest.
    CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński explained the company’s approach in an open letter:
