Summer Games Done Quick is a charity marathon from Speed Demos Archive that features speed runs from a variety of games and genres. This year the event is raising money for Doctor Without Borders. This event had a speed run for Fallout 1 and another for Fallout 3. Both runs were subject to bid wars where donors were able to bid on certain aspects of the run.

The first run was done for Fallout 1 by DrTChops. This was an any% run which means the runner aims to simply complete the game without any additional requirements. Saving and loading were used as well as using the start/end combat glitch to avoid combat.

The second run was for Fallout 3(PC) by BubblesDelFuego. This was also an any% run. Quicksave/quickload glitching allowed the runner to skip dialogue, clip through walls which allow some major sequence breaking, avoid enemy attacks and avoid fall damage. Also a cripple speed glitch was used to allow 160% run speed.

IGN posted some new information from Quakecon 2015. There may also be leaked audio of the Fallout 4 demo according to Reddit.


Quote:



LOOTING: Looting will be in real time with no pause whatsoever.


NAMES: The 1000 Names Todd Howard mentioned will be varied; some of them are ridiculous like Mr. Fuckface!


CITIES: A bit of Diamond City was shown (Concept Art). Some attendees say that it was covered in snow. The gameplay was located in Lexington!


DIALOGUE: Dialogue will be incredibly flexible sometimes having the option to have a conversation with 2 other people at the same time.


COMPANIONS: Companions confirmed are a female named Piper located in Diamond City, a robot similar to Codsworth, and Preston Garvey who is part of a group called the Minuteman. There will also be relationships like in several of the Bioware titles.


PIP-BOY: When you look at the Pip-Boy the game will pause as in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. The inventory is also easier to get to.


ANIMATIONS: There will now be animations when you are using meds such as Stimpak. There are a lot of different animations, and they're way more detailed than before; even Dogmeat has a ton of little detailed animations for everything he does. AI will now also have the feature of jumping and climbing through some obstacles.


KARMA/REPUTATION: There'll be procedural reactions to you based off your reputation and Karma.


WEAPONS: There was an Automatic Plasma Rifle, but not really anything else. You can also find modified weapons in the Wasteland. This may depend on your luck. You can also melee with your weapon even if there's not a bayonet attached to your weapon!


PERKS/PERKS UI: 7 Categories and 10 Rows. Intimidation and Attack Dog! Perks will also be depend on your SPECIAL.


GHOULS: Ghouls have changed a lot now from their previous two appearances.


LEGENDARY: Many other enemies will be legendary. Even human-like creatures such as Ghouls.


BEHEMOTHS: Some Behemoths were unquestionably bigger than the one in the trailer. Some even say as big as they were in Fallout 3.


HACKING: Nothing special to talk about.


BOOKS: Some books are now readable.


SKILLS: No such thing anymore. Will be replaced with Perks.

Bethesda has announced a collection of all the Fallout games ever released for PC, titled Fallout Anthology. This limited collection will be released on September 29th in North America and October 2nd in Europe, and will come in a package modeled after a Fat Man mini nuke. Both Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas will come packaged with all the DLC released for the games, and the packaging will apparently also include a space for Fallout 4's disc.

Two tasty news tidbits for your viewing pleasure.

Forbes
brings us this article about Fallout Shelter for iOS, on the account of it making over $5 million in micro-transactions in a couple of weeks. A short review of the game is included, which makes some fairly good points about the viability of mobile gaming in relation to AAA titles.

Game Rant shares much of the same news, but also adds that Gamescom will be the next chance to see Fallout 4 in action. We can expect to see that in August. Most likely with news about the Android version of Fallout Shelter.

Bethesda sure does know how to rake in the caps.
