Happy 5th Birthday, Fallout 3

Five years ago today, Fallout 3 released in North America. To celebrate the occasion, share your favorite #Fallout3Memories with our official Twitter account for Bethesda Game Studios – @BGS_Devs.

Related, Eurogamer recently put up a new feature highlighting the game as one of the best games of this generation. Elsewhere, GamesTM ranked the game #1 in their list of 50 Defining Games of This Console Generation, and Todd Howard commented on the honor here.

On the Storefront

Stay comfortable during your nuclear winter in these new men’s long sleeved tees. We haven’t forgotten those of you in the warmer temperatures inside the Vault. There are new men’s short sleeved shirts available as well. Visit store.bethsoft.com for the newest and best in Vault-Tec gear.

Also, don’t forget! Today is the last day to pick up your, Vault Boy of the Month: Grim Reaper Sprint shirt. Get it before its reclaimed by the Wasteland.

August’s Vault Boy Tee of the Month

Just revealed at QuakeCon (and available early for attendees), August’s Vault Boy Tee of the Month features the Rad Absorption perk. You’ll literally beam with pride wearing the shirt — as it glows in the dark. Can’t wait to see these in the dark corners of the BYOC.

Per usual, you’ve got one week to purchase this month’s tee before it goes back into the Vault.

Order here!

Gary (Updated)

Update: The extremely limited Gary hoodie is available for purchase while supplies last.

Want one of these Vault 108 hoodies? You’ll need to act quickly tomorrow when they go up at store.bethsoft.com.

Just as there were 54 Garys in Fallout 3’s Vault 108, we will only sell 54 individually-numbered hoodies* (Gary 01 — Gary 54). Due to the extremely limited nature of this item, we can’t honor requests for specific numbers.

As soon as the hoodies are available tomorrow, we’ll update this post and also notify fans following our Twitter and Facebook pages.
