Just to let you all know that Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics are now free till December 14th on GoG.com Not sure if there is any truth about this but according to GoG.com the Fallout name is changing hands so GoG might not be able to have the games for sale on their site much longer. So if you have ever enjoyed the series or like me have only played the 3 one or New Vegas you might want to grab these while you can.

Yes, that is true. At the end of the year the rights for those games will be transferred from Interplay (who is signed up with GOG) to Bethesda (who is not).

This giveaway is basically out of spite, but it benefits users, so why not.

Is there anything special you have to do to get them? And is this for PC? If so I may have to check it out 'cause I've never played Fallout before~

I guess that means I gotta download them while I can. I already bought them years ago, though.

I got Fallout 1 for free a while back, and I've got to say, it's pretty difficult. Kind of like XCOM: UFO Defense, you can pepper the landscape with a machine gun volley, but you won't neccesarily hit your target, and one mistake can cost you your life.

Is Fallout 2 similar in that regard? I'm keen to play it because I heard it has various improvements on the original, but if I'm being honest, Fallout 1 was a bit too hardcore for me. And damn, that time limit!

If you guys can't get through just keep trying that's what I did. All you have to do is put them in your cart and checkout thats it. Once you do that all they will be yours forever. You don't even have to install them right away.

@Gioku: All you have to do is create an account with them and that's it. Then just look for Fallout, Fallout 2 and Tactics and "purchase" them.

I liked Fallout 1's gameplay more, but Fallout 2's gameplay is different, yes. Easier, too. But have you tried turning down the difficulty in Fallout 1?

I'd say Fallout 2's gameplay is pretty similar, personally. Although the expanded content (more perks, more levels, more items, and much better followers) and lack of time limit definitely made the game easier, it's still obviously the same system; I'd be wary recommending it to someone who found the first too hardcore.

That said, I found the first quite manageable. Fast shot trait with melee might have been a bit of an exploit, though (they were incompatible in fallout 2).

If you're planning on playing Fallout 1, do yourself a favour and tag melee weapons and speech, also pump points into agility.
