    I have to admit that the cookbook does look interesting--I suppose the question is whether it actually has anything beyond generic recipes.

    The Saga book is what peaked my interest. Wonder what unseen things are in there?

    Tim Cain did leave all his notes and stuff. Maybe they trapped parts of his soul in the book to steal the last bits of our dignity.

    If it has Tim's recipes in it, I hope he can sue them for it; if they didn't pay him.

    I can not help but think that someone in Bethesda/Zenimax really wants me emotionally dead.

    TorontRayne, that book "The Fallout Saga" may be the best of the bunch but I still have a hunch that it will disappoint and that the writer does not get the Fallout universe at all other than what Bethesda's people tell him what it is about.

    What the hell happened to Fallout. It was this RPG that spoke to a niche of gamers and wasn't a triple A project at all.

    And now it is being turned into a fucking Disney product.

    I am reminded of that quote that AM in "I have no mouth and I must scream" inscribed on its Pillar of Hatred;

    "Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to HATE you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer-thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles, it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. HATE."

    I think I am getting an inkling of how it felt.

    Unfortunately that is the life and prerogative of a work-for-hire artist and writer. If the client commissioned it, it's the job to create exactly what they asked for.

    With so much information—willingly offered—online, it would be sad indeed if the author was not commissioned, and instead wrote a Bethesdian fairytale Fallout history for lack of knowing any better.

    Fallout is not dead. Fallout is coming back to life.
    Even now, can't you hear the breath returning to its lungs? The Black Isle reopening, the Gamestops humming with the thoughts of young minds?

    I feel like Fallout is BECOMING the new Star Wars, now that Solo was a fucking disaster (surprise surprise). Fingers crossed we don’t get an abominable Christmas special that later becomes a cult classic.

    You mean you wouldn't want Fallout: Christmas edition to come out, something akin of this?



    Santa has been captured by reborn Enclave. Save the christmas by decorating Liberty Prime into red and green and go make gifts for all the NPCs in the world.

    I think it's better that Bethesda isn't touching the original Fallout. What they see Fallout to be, and what it was are very different things. I'm glad that no matter what happens, you can always go back and play through Fallout, Fallout 2, or even stick with New Vegas.

    It's a hope that at some point, some big, small, or indie studio creates an experience like Fallout that serves the niche in its own way. Maybe via all the growth and spread in the direction Bethesda took it, eventually the market will try to serve the more interesting niches that inevitably develop from the exposure to the games Bethesda made.

    Yes, if only someone somewhere were to make an experience like the original Fallout, one day... Hmmm...

    ...Damn, I guess there just aren't any other options huh? Man, tough break, innit? I guess Fallout died and took the entire genre down with it, oh woe and suffering...
