It has been quite a while since we’ve had an official Fallout game from Bethesda Studios (or developed by Obsidian and released by Bethesda). Some of us were rather shocked when they announced earlier in 2015 that not only does Fallout 4 exist, it is being released in Fall 2015. This of course caused the hype train to leave the station, picking up steam as the release date grew closer and closer. Now that it has pulled into the release station we will get to where we’ll get to see some great parts of a game from the Fallout universe, while other aspects will leave us wondering “Why didn’t they wait until 2016 to release it?” They spent a decent amount of developer time on related pieces of software, including the Fallout Shelter game (which was fun but grew boring quickly), the videos explaining the benefits of each S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute (that surprisingly were absent from the game), and the mobile app that would allow you to use your phone as your Pip-Boy instead of having to pull it up in game instead. Sure all of these helped build towards the Fallout 4 mythos, it could have been time spent on the game itself instead.
