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.

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...

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...

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.

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.
