The best part of waking up… is Vault Boy in your cup!
Word must have gotten around as we’ve spotted a foam version of Vault Boy this week on Reddit, Twitter, and other social media sites.
Update: Less than 24 hours until this limited edition shirt is no longer for purchase.
Soon you’ll be able to go through life with a different (and hopefully clean) Vault Boy shirt for weeks on end. Today at store.bethsoft.com, we’ve officially kicked off our ‘Vault Boy Tee of the Month’ sale. As the name alludes to, we’ll be selling a different limited edition Vault Boy shirt each month.
Our first VBTotM shirt celebrates the Animal Friend perk which appeared in the original Fallout, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas. Pre-sale has begun today and we’ll be taking orders until next Friday. After Friday, May 17th, they will no longer be available for purchase, ever!
Come back next month when we reveal the VBTotM shirt.
Happy to report one of our most popular items on store.bethsoft.com, our Vault 101 hoodie, is now back in stock.
Couple interesting Fallout bits worth checking out this weekend…
Spotted while reading The Verge, Flickr user LockVanish has taken pictures both in DC and Las Vegas and matched them with screenshots from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Be sure to admire all his efforts within his Fallout Flickr sets.
In unrelated (but equally awesome) news, last week Kotaku featured a post highlighted breathtaking Fallout 3 screenshots taken by Flickr user Anthemios. Learn the mods he used to make screens like the one above here.
Want to drool over more screenshots? Dead End Thrills’ Duncan Harris has followed up his Skyrim work with some mod-enabled Fallout 3 screens.
FALLOUT® MMO RIGHTS RESTORED TO
BETHESDA SOFTWORKS® IN INTERPLAY LITIGATION
All Fallout® Intellectual Property Rights Belong Exclusively to Bethesda
January 9, 2012 (Rockville, MD) –ZeniMax® Media Inc. today announced that a settlement had been reached in the lawsuit filed by its subsidiary, Bethesda Softworks®, against Interplay Entertainment Corporation in 2009, Bethesda Softworks LLC v Interplay Entertainment Corp., seeking cancellation of the license granted to Interplay to develop a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) based on the Fallout brand. Bethesda maintained in its complaint that Interplay had failed to meet the conditions for the license and the license was therefore of no continuing validity.
Under the terms of the settlement, the license granted to Interplay to develop the Fallout MMO is null and void, and all rights granted to Interplay to develop a Fallout MMO revert back to Bethesda, effective immediately. Interplay has no ongoing right to use the Fallout brand or any Fallout intellectual property for any game development. ZeniMax will pay Interplay $2 million as consideration in the settlement, each party will bear its own costs of the litigation, and Bethesda will continue to own all Fallout intellectual property rights. Interplay will be permitted to continue to sell the original Fallout ®Tactics, Fallout® and Fallout® 2 PC games through December 2013, after which time all rights to market those games revert to and become the sole property of Bethesda. Under the original agreement pursuant to which Bethesda had acquired the Fallout property, Interplay was granted certain merchandising rights to sell those original Fallout games, but those merchandising rights will now expire on December 31, 2013.
G4TV.com’s Videogame Deathmatch: Best Franchise is down to eight legendary series. With only three rounds left, Fallout is still in contention, and currently taking on Assassin’s Creed.
