“Wastelanders wasn’t even on our radar”: the Fallout 76 community is the reason we’re getting human NPCs

The news that Fallout 76 is getting human NPCs in its Wastelanders update made me whoop with joy, and I just know that I wasn't alone in that elation. With the absence of human NPCs being the main criticism of Fallout 76 for so many people, this could be the first sign that Fallout 76 is gradually becoming the MMO we thought it would be. But according to Marc Tardif (co-studio director at Bethesda Game Studios), that Wastelanders update and the NPCs in it wasn't on Bethesda's radar until the com

Steam In-Home Streaming is now available outside the home

Steam In-Home Streaming, which lets you stream Steam games between devices that share a network, has "experimentally" been unshackled and is now available outside the home, too.

And the same is true of a website, because once we’ve visited somewhere on the web, there needs to be a good reason to return.

One of the important elements in how page rankings are determined is exactly how new the content on the linked page (or pages) is.

Terraria unveils the huge Journey’s End update

The PC Gaming Show brought us some big news about 2D dig ‘em up Terraria today. You might have looked at the game and thought “that doesn’t seem right” but I assure you it’s true.

Human NPCs are coming to Fallout 76, complete with full dialogue trees and a new quest line. The news was announced at Bethesda's E3 showcase, as part of the Wastelanders update which will be free for all players.
