No matter how much time you’ve spent with Fallout 4 since it launched last month, it probably hasn’t had as big of an impact on your life as it has one gamer’s from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. According to a report from RT, the 28-year-old man is suing Bethesda, the developer of the game, for 500,000 roubles ($7,000) after losing his job and his wife.
He says that he didn’t know the game would be “so addictive.”
It was pretty obvious that Bethesda’s new iPhone game Fallout Shelter would be a hit from the moment it was announced on Sunday. Fallout is one of the most beloved IPs around and Fallout 4 is one of this year’s most highly anticipated games. That said, I’m not sure anyone thought Bethesda’s mobile game would ever be this successful. More →
Bethesda kicked off this year’s E3 gaming conference with a huge press conference that was packed full of announcements, and fans of gruesome, gory games have a lot to look forward to from the Maryland-based video game maker. Of course, since the event took place late in the evening on Sunday, you probably missed it.
Fans of the Fallout series know by now that the fourth game has been confirmed earlier this year, after years of rumors. What’s more interesting is that Bethesda on Sunday afternoon revealed more details about the upcoming game in its special pre-E3 media event, including Fallout 4’s release date. More →

The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.
Valve has been leading the charge with the Steam Workshop, giving Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 modders the opportunity to share their creations with a large audience, but starting this week, modders will be able to start setting their own prices for those creations and selling them directly to consumers.

You won’t be performing Dragon Shouts on your Wii U anytime soon. Joystiq reports that Bethesda, the developer behind smash-hit games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 3, has no plans to release any games for Nintendo’s newest console at the moment and all of its announced upcoming games will release only for the PC, the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One. This isn’t as big a deal for Nintendo as you might think because neither Skyrim nor Fallout 3 ever released on the original Wii.
