The Fallout series, from the third game onwards, I've spent hundreds of hours in and I've loved every minute. They are fantastic sand box, open world, games that do a fantastic job balancing player freedom whilst constructing an interesting and well delivered narrative. When Bethesda shared the Vault Tech 'Please Stand By' image the day before yesterday on Instagram I rolled my eyes and just assumed it would probably be a Nintendo Switch or mobile title. I was VERY wrong.
Like most people, I too was pulled in by the hype for this game when it was announced and even went as far as to pre-order it (something I never do), completely ready to become an intrepid explorer in the wilds of space. I was pumped to side with one of the possible factions or go it alone as a pirate, in large scale space conflict mixed with Star Trek-esque planetside exploring. It burned like hell that all these features were barely even skin deep and the game did not deliver on many of the promised features. Two years on though, it refuses to die.

It's been a horrible and disturbing situation for some time, rumours of mistreatment by carers and business partners, with some allegedly taking advantage of the legend who is currently 95 years of age and revered the world over for his sweeping influences on our current culture. This came to a head recently when the man himself took to Twitter and has begun to take legal action against those that have wronged him. It's a story that will make you furious and resolute at the same time.
Now, the header for this piece is something seemingly most people have known for a while but hey, cut me some slack, I'm slow at discovering new things. Seeking out the unfamiliar takes a lot of working up to, y'know? Over the last week and a bit I've been introduced to the multi-talented aspects of the man who we'll all soon see as young Lando and god damn, he's got a lot going on, and all of it is brilliant.
It happened, the meteor has landed and has caused quite a bit of chaos for the open of Season 4. It didn't hit Tilted Towers as speculated by ourselves and about 98% of the internet, which goes to show you that you shouldn't trust everything you read online kids! That being said the things that the event has shook up and the new feel and content inclusions going in to Season 4 have me pretty pumped for the game as there's more reason to return to the island than ever before. What exactly am I looking forward to, because it isn't winning...
