In post-apocalyptic news, Obsidian devs wouldn't be opposed to make another Fallout, and Brian Fargo's Kickstarter'd Wasteland 2 shows off its first gameplay.

Confessional: I make up my own stories for games

So here is a dumb thing I do: I make up my own stories in games. No, I'm not just talking about RPGs like Fallout or Skyrim where the entire point is to go out and make your own mark on the world. I'm talking about just about...more
