Fallout is free on GOG for the next 48 hours

One of the best PC RPGs of all time, Fallout, is available for download free of charge from Good Old Games for the next 48 hours.

Normally the game would set you back $US4.99

The servers are being hammered as you’d expect, but you don’t need me to tell you that you totally need to download this.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Fallout 2

Possibly my favourite RPG on the PC.

Fallout 2 is set roughly 80 years of the original game, with the player controlling a direct descendant of the original Vault Dweller. Your village, Arroyo is in peril: you need to find a Garden of Eden Creation Kit (G.E.C.K.) in the remnants of Vault 13, the facility from which your ancestor began his/her journey. It’s a bit lighter and funnier than the first game, but it doesn’t compromise on the story or gameplay.
