Not a L4-7 Entry

This post has got nothing to do with L4-7 testing or stateful engines. It’s about video games, because this is my other passion. Today, on the amazing Good Old Games website, you can get Fallout for free – and legally.

Fallout was released in September 1997 and is one of the best post-apocalyptic, turn-based, role-playing game (yeah, that’s quite specific) game ever released. And today you can get it for free.

While on the topic, there’s currently a Kickstarter Project to fund Wasteland 2. The original Wasteland was released in 1988 and inspired Fallout. The only reason the name and franchise are different is because Electronic Arts (which published Wasteland in ’88) didn’t release intellectual property rights to Interplay (which published Fallout in ’97) so the later publisher just changed the name, setting and back story.

If you claim to love games, get Fallout now. Or wait a few days and pay 5 or 10 dollars, which is the usual range for games on GoG.
