Maybe you played the original Wasteland back in the late eighties. Maybe you really got hooked on isometric post-apocalyptic RPG’s later on with its spiritual successor, Fallout. A turn-based, tactical overhead RPG isn’t the sort of thing AAA publishers think they can make money with. And yet, Wasteland 2 is bringing in pretty decent cash for developer inXile.

You’re not going to see Fallout 4 for quite some time, and that makes me a sad panda. Still! That doesn’t mean that the franchise is dead, and even a former developer on one of the entries in that franchise has a few ideas for the rumoured sequel.

It hasn’t been a fun couple of weeks for Fallout fans. With the Spike VGX awards coming up, many thought that Bethesda would be showing off a PS4 and Xbox One version of Fallout 4, something bolstered by a mysterious website. That turned out to be a hoax. But Fallout 4 may still be alive, and it could be set somewhere wicked awesome.

I hope you weren’t too excited by he prospect of a brand new Fallout game on the horizon. Not only did the “teaser site” fail to have a payload, or Bethesda fail to show anything at the VGX or awards; the whole site’s been confirmed to be a fake.

The Wastelands of the post-apocalyptic Fallout universe is one of my very favourite game settings; there’s so much character in such a barren place. I am, naturally, beyond excited for the prospect of a next-generation Fallout 4. It could be happening.

Its a new year, which means new games, new tech and fresh rumours. One such rumour is that Fallout 4 happened to be at E3 last week, but judging by Geoff’s lack of radiation burns after his trip to the Bethesda booth, I have high doubts about that. And Bethesda’s Pete Hines has just locked in a 95% kill chance on that juicy little tidbit.

In a very interesting and awesome interview on Rock Paper Shotgun, Obsidian Entertainment spilled the beans on their plans for the next Fallout game. By the looks of it, they’ve put some thought into it, meaning we could possibly see a new Fallout game developed in the near future.

Since it’s a slow news day of note, and Geoff has decided to go attend a DSTV launch party for My Little Pony while hammered out of his mind on Jack Daniels and Bacardi, I’m throwing this little feature into the ring. PC cases! Customised! And they don’t look like crap! Enjoy! Exclamation marks!

Here’s what you can do in modern gaming:

You can become a god that sacrifices small children in your ever burning altar (Black and White); you can have a gun, don a nasty Russian accent, and slaughter dozens of civilians in an airport (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2); you can control the denizens of Hell or something equivalent, and torture good souls trying to stop your evil intents on the world (Dungeon Keeper); you can destroy a small post-apocalyptic town that contains struggling dwellers trying to make ends meet (Fallout 3). Let’s not forget about your decision in Mass Effect to wipe out an entire species (remember Virmire and confronting Wrex?). And there are many others.

It's also really funny and if you don't giggle to yourself at some point during its 16 minute running time, then there might be something wrong with you. It’s loaded to the brim with some serious attention to detail insofar as depicting the Fallout universe is concerned. There’s even an Enclave Eyebot – I love those guys! The short film is about a Vault Dweller, a slave and a Ghoul on a quest to find some Nuka Cola. It’s not a particularly inspired plot, but it’s the confrontations they encounter along the way that make the film great. It’s worth watching, even if the ghoul looks like he comes out of a cheesy, nineties horror film. But did I mention it’s also damn funny?

It's Heritage day today so you really shouldn't be doing anything on the Internet unless it somehow relates to organising more beer and braai vleis. However if, like me, you actually have to work today then fear not I have a video for you to watch that will consume 3:05 minutes of your day away getting you just that little bit closer to that ice cold beer. Check the video below to see what sort of weaponary and awesome sounds we can expect in Fallout New Vegas

Today South Africa is beginning the celebrations for the World Cup and Bafana Bafana, with Sandton in an absolute state of awesome chaos as people go wild and blow on their vuvuzelas. (Thanks to @AkiAnastasiou for this great aerial shot that he posted on TwitPic, saying "United We Shall Stand").

World Cup time is coming, and if I am lucky, I will get to watch some of the proceedings from the airport on Friday. I hope you guys are all really excited, this is really a time for us to all remember.

How is everyone else's day going? Any big parades in your area, deafening noise? Here's the noise we didn't post because we couldn't hear ourselves think.

I actually knew very little about Metro 2033 to be honest, I had seen the name here and there but never enough to actually pay a lot of attention to it.

The launch trailer has been released and it looks like a mixture between Fallout 3 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R, which isn't a bad thing. While we have to wait for reviews to hit before we know how the game stacks up, it looks as though there may be something special here.

Metro 2033 should hit this weekend and is only available for the PC and Xbox 360. Trailer after the jump.
