Open world! Go where you please!
This was the promise of the future. What we wouldn’t have given back in the days of Donkey Kong Country to have been able to free roam across DK Island with the promise of new levels to be had… new loot (and bonus level barrels, of course). Back in those days, theera of the 1990s when the video game hobby was really finding its feet and jumping into an obscure late-night tv commercial thing to a generational standard – oh what amazing machines our Super Nintendos and our Segas were – we were fixed on pre-determined path by our video game designer overlords. Except for the occasional warp pipe, we progressed from level one, to two… to three.
It is no secret that Fallout 3 was one of my favourites. Fallout: New Vegas appealed to many, and although I enjoyed it, it never quite struct the same resonant chord with me that Fallout 3 did. However, the success of both made a sequel inevitable…

I remember the day, back in the wild times of the mid ’90s, when we were still amazed by Mario Kart 64’s whole eight character roster (Wario, playable? Wow!). Back then I’d rush home from the store as fast as the city bus would get me there (not very) – and pop my brand new shiny cartridge into the ’64. Boom! New game, product complete, fired up in all its early 64bit 3D glory. Two years later, that game would be just as was then – awesome. No patches required.
We’ve been having so much fun rounding up Fallout memes and illogical game moments, we thought Link deserved a turn.
Read on for the best the web has to offer for Legend of Zelda memes…
We love Fallout, and have always kept up with new entries in the series.
With a big Fallout 4 announcement expected at this year’s E3, this could turn out to be next year’s most anticipated game. Let’s take a look back at some of the crazy nonsense this series has put us through… in meme form!

The community is buzzing with excitement for Bloodborne, the Souls sequel that isn’t. One of the most anticipated games of the year so far, Bloodborne promises to deliver the best of blood, gore and horrific monsters you have come to expect from games for the PlayStation console.
For those of you like me who are eagerly anticipating the release of Fallout: New Vegas, tomorrow is the big day! For those of you are unfamilair with the franchise, Fallout is a grim depiction of the a post-apocalyptic future – as it was envisioned in the 1950s. Fallout 3 stands as one of my favourite games made yet, and for those who have not tried and are curious, this piece of software is highly recommended. And yes, this image is just Death Valley, not a nuclear blast, but hey – it looks convincing, doesn’t it?
I feel like it is long past time I said a few words about the Xbox 360’s Mass Effect 2. Mass Effect 2 is Bioware’d space RPG that continues the story of Command Shepherd in his battle against a great threat to humanity. I am leaving plot references vague, in order to to avoid spoilers, but be warned regardless. Long story short: It was a good game with a lot of great things to say about it, but I was still disappointed.
The teaser trailer for Fallout: New Vegas is out. See for yourself. The trailer looks intersting – Vegas appears like a diamond in the rough… a futuristic city of lights in the otherwise post-apocalyptic environment. The Capital Wasteland (Fallout 3) by comparison was the ruined remnants of Washington DC and didn’t have much live within it – except the angry super mutant kind. Good music choice, too.
