Bethesda Softworks Launches Website with Countdown, Fallout 4 Speculation Runs Wild

If you’re like me, you spent waaaaaaay too many hours back in 2008/2009 sitting in front of your 360, lights dimmed and eyeballs bleeding as you roamed the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Washington DC in Fallout 3. When you finished, you wanted more. MORE. Sure, Fallout: New Vegas was alright,  but it just wasn’t the same as Bethesda’s masterpiece.

After years of petitions, DEMANDING that Bethesda just give the people what they want, it appears that…something is about to be announced?

Yes, earlier today Bethesda launched a 24 hour countdown timer that is leading up to what most are assuming is the announcement that Fallout 4 is indeed happening. Or it will be an announcement about an announcement. E3 is only two weeks away, and most gaming journalists figured that would be a pretty good time to give some basic information.

Or maybe Bethesda is just screwing with all of us and we’re about to see what’s for lunch in the cafeteria next week.

At any rate, we’ll find out whether or not to stockpile our bunkers for the apocalypse tomorrow morning.

Update: The link now takes you to the Fallout 4 trailer. Rejoice!

Pher Sturz

Christopher, or Pher as most Great Apes refer to him (except for Chimpanzees – because they’re rude and never tip waiters either…), is a normal looking Homo Sapiens Sapiens. He’s so normal looking, he’s the host most likely to turn out to be a serial killer or trained assassin. Pher claims he is not, but that’s exactly what we’d expect him to say. Pher has never cofounded an anime convention, which makes his life incomplete and Nick and Trae just feel sorry for him most of the time. Pher left Nerd & Tie at the end of 2016.
