Vault Boy Tee of the Month — Fortune Finder


It always seemed like a cool idea to have metal detector to find hidden treasures in your neighborhood. Perhaps cooler (and cheaper, and not as weird) is April’s Vault Boy Tee of the Month celebrating the Fortune Finder perk.

The shirt is on sale starting today and will be available until next Friday. After that, you’ll need a special t-shirt detector to find it in the wasteland hundreds of years from now.

Vault Boy Tee of the Month – Paralyzing Palm


So how does one tie in this month’s Vault Boy Tee of the Month — Paralyzing Palm — to February’s most iconic holiday, Valentine’s Day. After extensive thought, the unarmed perk brings to mind Kill Bill’s most heartbreaking martial arts maneuver. With a shirt as stylish as this one, you’ll want to be ready to break/stop a few hearts.

You’re going to love the way you look in this shirt — available for one week only at store.bethsoft.com!

Partied Like It’s 2015


January’s Vault Boy Tee of the Month depicts the Party Boy Perk, and it’s imagery is one many can identify with right now  — a New Year’s hangover of returning to school, work, and other routines that were blissfully ignored during the holiday season.

Keep the party going with the shirt — available in men’s and women’s sizes — at store.bethsoft.com.

Around the Web – Bunker Down Edition


With frigid temperatures in our nation’s capital, it’s time to get under a blanket, grab a warm bottle of mead, and check out the web’s best Bethesda fun from around the web — none more fitting than IGN’s look at the best winter levels in gaming.

While we hunker down, Fallout fans are bunkering down underground to celebrate birthdays in Vault 30 — a vault used to celebrate the birthday of Reddit user VaultoftheSix. Get more pics here.

Meanwhile down under…


Members from BattleCry Studios have safely made their way back to Austin from Melbourne and were nice enough to bring back plenty of new previews and interviews for the game — including The Escapists’ hands-on impressions describing the game as “a deliciously in-your-face alternate reality brawler with a beautiful art style”. For more on the game, check out the stories below…

Explosion — “The new PAX video revealed a new gameplay mode for Battlecry–Land Grab. Basically, Land Grab looks like a zone control multiplayer battle. I am glad there will be alternate modes besides a basic team deathmatch mode. I expect more gameplay modes will be incorporated to the game later.”

Geek Bomb — “As a huge fan of online multiplayer games and in particular free-to-play, I was immediately drawn to the highly-stylised visuals and breakneck pace. It’s clear to see the game is aimed at the competitive market and it’s a perfect fit, with a learning curve that’s quick to understand but incredibly difficult to master, it requires skill, precision and most importantly teamwork.”

Interviews — Read and watch new interview with design director Lucas Davis at both GameCloud and KayleGames.

As a reminder to those down under, BATTLECRY’s Beta is coming first to Australia. Visit the official site to sign up.

And tonight’s update ends with a short, but amazing rendition of Skyrim’s theme from opera singer Kari Kirk, whose son, David, captured it live. Great work, mom!
