Until tomorrow (Saturday, September 30th, 2017) at 11:59pm PDT, Steam and Bethesda have the original Fallout game for free. Like EA’s On the House promotion through Origin, this is not just a free weekend. If you “install” the game from the Steam store (although you only need to “install” it to your library -- you can actually install it whenever you like) then it is, apparently, yours to keep.

Honestly, whenever I get around to it, this would be my first time playing the game, too. Back in the 1997 time frame, I was mostly playing games like Command & Conquer (including Red Alert). I never really got into RPG games, be it Western or Eastern. But, due to the wonders of PC gaming, I can just go back and, you know, play whatever I missed... because old games can be awesome, too.

Okay, I’m rambling. Add it to your Steam library if you haven’t already (and, of course, if you have a Steam account).

This mod has been eight years in the making but we may soon see it released for us all to enjoy.  The New Vegas mod will put you into the wilds of the NCR after being rather abruptly ejected from your home in Vault 18.  This will be a nice experience for those who found Fallout 4 to have strayed a bit far from the games roots, especially in the dialogue.  Head over to Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN for a video showing off the mod and giving you a look into how your adventure will start.

"Vault 18 is at the heart of the California Wasteland high in the San Bernardino Mountains, and its legendary Wasteland Scouts have managed to keep its secrets safe for decades despite the wars raging beyond the great door. In their old age, their adventures have created a new generation to take their place… if their rebellious adopted kids survive the threat brewing within their own ranks."
