  • Soapbox Why Fallout 4 Has One of PS4's Best Open Worlds

    Kell Andersen reckons Bethesda's Boston is spot on

    "You see that nondescript object way over there in the distance?" a game developer in an ill-fitting outfit says as they wave their hands in the vague direction of a comically oversized projection screen splattered with images of their latest open world adventure. "You can walk all the way over...

  • News Fallout 4 Patches Will Copy Skyrim's Approach on PS4

    First update is coming soon

    Before its launch, Bethesda promised plenty of free updates for Fallout 4, and now that the game's been out for over a week, we're starting to hear how this is all going to work. Needless to say, the developer's now building future content, and the title's first patch should be releasing soon. There's no word on what...

  • News Someone Made a Working Rubik's Cube in Fallout 4

    What a square

    Fallout 4's building system is just another mechanic slathered on top of what is already a pretty darn dense game, but we're beginning to see the fruits of the addition. One committed wasteland constructor has compiled 128 generators, 36 terminals, and thousands of wires to create an in-game Rubik's Cube. It took him/her 25 hours to...

  • Poll How Well Is Fallout 4 Running on Your PS4?

    We hope it's rad

    It's been about a week since Fallout 4 launched, so we think that it's a pretty good time to get some feedback on how Bethesda's latest is performing. As you're no doubt aware, the developer doesn't have the best track record when it comes to making games that run as they should - but from what we've watched and read around the...

  • Weirdness Adult Site Sees Drop in Traffic on Fallout 4 Launch Day

    High vaultage

    Vault dwellers found a different kind of joystick to play with on Fallout 4's launch day, as adult site Pornhub – not linked for obvious reasons – reported a 10 per cent decline in traffic on the day of the role-playing game's release. Apparently page views dipped at 05:00AM on 10th November, around the time most people would have...

  • News Ridiculous Fallout 4 Numbers Point to Bethesda's Most Successful Launch Ever

    It certainly didn't bomb

    Bethesda seems to have really knocked it out with Fallout 4. The post-apocalyptic role-playing game has been headlining every major gaming website all week now, so it's safe to say that it's popular – but even its most optimistic fans wouldn't have thought that it'd be this popular. The studio has stated that the title...

  • News Keep an Eye on Your Calendar in Fallout 4

    Minor spoilers ahead

    If the tagline didn't already warn you, yes, there are minor spoilers in this article - that's why we didn't want to ruin everything with a headline that gives it all away. Something that we happened to stumble across in Fallout 4 purely because we were in the neighbourhood, Diamond City will celebrate the holidays if you...

  • News Fallout 4 Looks and Plays Fantastic on the Vita


    It's been a while since we've written anything about Remote Play, but this deserves its own story: Fallout 4 looks and plays wonderfully on the handheld format. Earlier in the year, Josh Hamrick tweeted that he was working around the clock to make the functionality dazzle in Bethesda's gigantic role-playing release – and the embedded video...

  • News What if Fallout 4 Featured Various Celebrities?

    Character creator put to the test

    Well, it didn't take long for a YouTuber to do some amazing things with Fallout 4's character creation suite, did it? The embedded video shows various famous faces recreated in Bethesda's colossal role-playing release, and while some are more successful than others, you could do worse things with your two minutes...

  • Guide What Are the Best Perks to Take in Fallout 4?

    Especially S.P.E.C.I.A.L.

    Fallout 4's perk system has seen a rather drastic overhaul from what prior games have offered. In some ways, it's more streamlined, while in others, it allows you more freedom to build your character exactly as you want. As always, though, you'll be swamped in options – but which perks should you take? With any luck,...

  • News Will Fallout 4's Robot Butler Say Your Name?

    Hours of fun await

    When Bethesda showed Fallout 4 off for the first time at E3 2015, studio lead Todd Howard mentioned that your robot butler, Codsworth, would actually say your character's name if it was in the title's database - he wasn't lying, either. When this particular author started the game and called his vault dweller 'Robert', for...

  • Guide Fallout 4 Hints and Tips for Beginners Fresh from the Vault

    Rad times ahead

    So, you're finally out of that vault, and guess what? The world's not in very good shape. Nuclear war has ravaged the Commonwealth, which is now home to horrors of all shapes and sizes – and you've got to survive in it. At first, this can be a daunting task: Fallout 4 is a big, reasonably complex game, and wrapping your head...

  • Round Up Fallout 4 PS4 Reviews Are Radioactive


    We've had Robert Ramsey locked in the Push Square vault for weeks now, and he's emerged with a 9/10 review for Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4. Of course, while we've got more post-apocalyptic content lined up than you can shake an irradiated stick at, it's always interesting to see what's being said around the web. Here are some choice...

  • News Fallout 4 Has a 500MB Day One Patch on PS4

    And it sounds important

    You'll need to download a 500MB patch for Fallout 4 if you want your game to be optimised before beginning your adventure on the PlayStation 4. We reviewed the title with the update installed, as it was actually made available to download days ago. We can't tell you the specifics of what the patch does, though. The update...

    Review Fallout 4

    V.A.T.S. more like it

    Well, here we are. Seven years after Bethesda's last crack at post-apocalyptic America, Fallout 4 is easily one of the most anticipated titles of this relatively young console generation thus far. The developer has more than proven that it's a master of crafting engaging open world titles in the past, and this latest romp...

  • Feature Is Fallout 4 a Broken Mess on PS4?

    Judgement day

    Let's not beat around the bush: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all launched in shameful condition on the PlayStation 3. All three games run on what is essentially the same, creaky old engine, which is one of the main reasons why many of you are understandably sceptical of Fallout 4's technical...

    Good timing, guys

    Well, isn't that just great? In a move that's exactly what you want from your store of choice just days before Fallout 4's release, there are reports that GAME is cancelling some pre-orders of the title's Pip-Boy Edition. The deluxe edition of the game has become something of a phenomenon, having completely sold out not too long...

  • News Fallout 4's Launch Trailer Will Make Your Hype Go Nuclear

    Not long now

    Yep, you'll soon be hearing the sound of bombs dropping. Fallout 4 is mere days away, so evidently the time is right for Bethesda to deploy the game's rather intriguing launch trailer. If you want to go into the new-gen wasteland blind, however, you may want to look away now. The reasonably lengthy video shows locations and...

  • News Bethesda Reveals Graphical Changes in Fallout 4

    Graphics, graphics always change

    Bethesda has detailed the graphical technology that powers Fallout 4. For those unfamiliar, Bethesda will be using the Creation Engine to bring the title to life, which is the same engine that was used for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. That doesn't mean that the former will look like the 2011 fantasy RPG, however,...

  • News Fallout 4 Features More Music Than Fallout 3

    Play it again, Johnny Guitar

    Fallout 4 has three times the amount of musical tunes compared to Fallout 3, Bethesda has announced.

The first batch being those that many ears will recognize from artists like The Ink...


  • DLC Review Braving The Evil Within's Season Pass on PS4

    Ruvik's cube

    Survival horror games are part of a somewhat niche genre that constantly break moulds and, in the process, either make unexpected, monumental strides in innovation or uproarious setbacks by straying too far into other genres. Regardless, many of them have shocked the gaming world, and The Evil Within was no exception last year. Much...

  • News Feed Your Hype with Loads of Fallout 4 Concept Art

    Big electric swords?

    We're at that point where anything even remotely related to Fallout 4 has people shaking with anticipation, so Bethesda's probably picked a good time to show off the game's massive art book, which will be available from its online store starting from the 22nd December. The 368-page tome contains concept art of all shapes and...

  • News Here's Why Fallout 4 Isn't Getting a Demo

    Pete Hines has spoken

    No, Fallout 4 isn't getting any sort of demo, but it's for a pretty good reason. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing for Bethesda, said it's not possible to cut up Fallout 4 into a small piece for a demo. Of course, this may not be that disappointing considering most people are...

  • News Here's 15 Seconds of Absolutely Brutal Fallout 4 Gameplay

    Just a flesh wound

    Well, the headline says it all. Bethesda's apparently started ramping up hype for Fallout 4 by releasing 15 second clips - and this first one focuses on a perk called 'Big Leagues'. The description reads: "You now do double damage with a melee weapon, and gain a chance to cripple your opponent, or grand slam their head clean...

  • News If Carlsberg Made Fallout Beer, It Would Be Available from Amazon Now

    And it is

    While this author would probably prefer an ice cold Nuka Cola, Carlsberg appears to have put a jagged lid on the Fallout 4 hype by announcing that a range of branded beers are available from now. The lagers – inspired by Bethesda's upcoming role-playing game – come in packs of 12, and promise a "refreshing zesty hoppy...

    Luck be a man with a magnum

    It's been a fun ride, but it's finally time to say goodbye to Fallout 4's charming little educational character building videos.

Well, according to Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing for Bethesda, the answer isn't a straight no. "I don't have info to...

  • News Fallout 4 Won't Have Performance Problems on PS4, Says Bethesda

    Do you believe?

    Let's face it: the big question regarding Fallout 4 right now isn't whether it'll be a good game - it's whether it'll actually run well on the PlayStation 4. Bethesda's open world titles have a history of bad performance on PlayStation, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 3 both launching in shamefully shoddy condition on...

The aforementioned collector's edition has been out of stock since...

  • News It's Weird to See Fallout 4 on a Vita Screen

    Control specialist handling Remote Play functionality

    It's a strange sight, isn't it? Fallout 4's easily one of the most anticipated games left to release this year, and it just seems weird to see it on a handheld display. Like all PlayStation 4 titles, you'll be able to stream the post-apocalyptic role-playing release to your Vita via Remote Play,...

  • News The Elder Scrolls Online Orsinium Map Is Unsurprisingly Massive

    Plus new screenshots from the expansion

    The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is big. It's so big that it dwarfs many other open world titles on the PlayStation 4, and as you'd expect of a massively multiplayer online title, it's absolutely crammed with quests, dungeons to explore, and creatures to kill. The good news is that it's about to...

  • News Fallout 4's Penultimate Character Building Video Has Some Impressive Agility

    Gotta go fast

    Holy-moly, can you believe Fallout 4 is now less than a month away?

This week's instalment focusses on...

  • Feature Five Things Fallout 4 Needs to Get Right on PS4

    Fall in, fall out

    Blockbuster releases are strange things. You spend what feels like an eternity waiting for the next big thing, absorbing all of the excitement that you possibly can, and then before you know it, it's already a week after launch day and you've pumped 100 hours into your new favourite game. The hype's dispersed somewhat by this...

Releasing next month on the 18th November, the PlayStation 4 downloadable content promises 20 hours of new...


  • News Fallout 4's Charismatic Character Building Is Crucial when Coexisting with Creepy Creatures

    Charmed, we're sure

    Wow, it's time for another Fallout 4 character building video already? Putting the C in S.P.E.C.I.A.L. is charisma - an attribute that's of great importance to those post-apocalyptic survivors who don't necessarily like to shoot their way out of every sticky situation. Charisma allows you to trade more effectively, persuade...

  • News There Won't Be Any Console Exclusive Extras in Fallout 4

    Thank the Ghouls

    Sony's been signing deals left and right since the start of this generation, locking down exclusive incentives for its system. However, one release that it's failed to partner with is irradiated role-playing game Fallout 4, which seems to be sitting not-so subtly in Xbox's camp. Does that mean that the Redmond firm will be giving...

  • News Fallout 4 Will Irradiate About 30GB of Your PS4 Hard Drive

    We've seen worse

    Fallout 4's Xbox One product page - yes, we know - states that the digital version of the upcoming open world title weighs in at just over 28GB, which means that you can expect the game to take up around the same amount of space on the PlayStation 4. It's a hefty chunk of hard drive, but we've definitely seen worse. In fact,...

  • News Fallout 4 Mutates with a Massive Perk System That's Yours to Explore


    Bit of a short video this one, but it's worth a watch if you're into Fallout's role-playing game elements. Levelling up in the post-apocalyptic series has always been handled well, with tons of different perks allowing you to craft your own specialised play style. Things are being taken up a notch with Fallout 4, though, which boasts an...

  • News Endure Fallout 4's Newest Character Build Video

    You can take it

    Fallout 4's back with another charming video in its S.P.E.C.I.A.L. series, and this time, it's all about endurance, which is an important trait to have when you're trying to survive in a radioactive wasteland. This is the third of Bethesda's character building clips, so if you haven't seen the first two - which focus on strength...

  • News Wolfenstein: The New Order Star Says There's More on the Way

    B.J.'s Back-owicz

    Bad news for Adolf Hitler: it sounds like a Wolfenstein: The New Order sequel is in the works. It's hardly a surprise, as Machine Games knocked it out of the park with its previous entry and expansion The Old Blood, but it's nice to get a bit of confirmation – even if it doesn't come courtesy of an official source. Instead,...

  • News Fallout 4's Original Soundtrack Should Be Fantastic

    Composer is bringing new sounds to the wasteland

    Everyone always seems to remember the licensed radio tracks from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas whenever the series' audio is brought up, but we'd argue that the original soundtracks actually stole the show from time to time. Both titles sported very haunting scores that really captured the dusty,...

  • News Fallout 4's Canine Companion Is Based on This Very Happy Dog

    Is probably being paid in snacks

    Fallout 4's going to have quite a few companions that can be convinced to join you on your adventures, and while we have no doubt that there'll be some colourful characters up for grabs, everyone loves a bit of Dogmeat. Okay, so that sentence didn't quite come out the way that we planned, but we're eager to see the...

  • News Perception Is the Point of Fallout 4's Newest Video

    Don't get too cocky there, sport

    Fallout 4's educational video series is back, and this time it tackles perception. The perception skill makes you more accurate in VATS mode, and also helps you do some not so legal things - like pickpocketing and picking locks. It goes without saying, but the wacky humour is back and it's actually pretty...

  • News Three Dog Voice Actor Not Returning for Fallout 4

    Insert Three Dog howl here

    It looks like Erik Todd Dellums, the voice behind Three Dog in Fallout 3, won't be filling the airwaves of Fallout 4's wasteland. The voice actor took to Twitter last week to express his disappointment with not being included in the upcoming Bethesda role-playing game. "I admit, the finality of this tweet felt like a...

As with the other games in the franchise, your attributes will determine the base...

    Review Dishonored: Definitive Edition

    Not Attano improvements

    It's almost been three years since Dishonored snuck onto the PlayStation 3, and when we donned the daunting mask of Corvo Attano back then to creep through Dunwall without so much as killing a soul or making a sound, we still regard Arkane Studios' runaway success with much-deserved admiration. Whether you choose to take a...

  • News Bethesda Promises Free Content Updates and Confirms a Season Pass for Fallout 4

    Bethesda's gone ahead and opened up the vault to Fallout 4's post-launch plans, and they're probably just as you'd expect.

It says that these patches will not only fix potential issues, but they'll also add new...

  • News Fallout 4 Features More Voiced Dialogue Than Any Other Bethesda Game

    More than Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined

    Seeing as Fallout 4's wasteland is, well, you know, a bit barren, we suppose its inhabitants have generally got a lot of free time on their hands. And when the world outside of your tin shack is packed with things just waiting to eat you alive, spending a lot of that free time chatting to other doomed souls...
