Hey, this is kind of a great idea. I'm almost sorry I'm sharing with everyone.

Put your location in, and it tells you which areas to avoid, while pointing out useful locations for shelter, food, supplies, and weapons. Looks like it's also going to be part of some real-world game, too. Hopefully one without actual zombies.

Quick, go watch this:

OK, now watch part 2:

Now, see what's coming later this year:

Yup, if this is real, and not some fan-made trailer, Bethesda's doing Fallout 4, and it's set in my favourite U.S. town.

Of course, over at the official Fallout page, there's no mention of this. (Sigh)

... that didn't involve Grand Theft Auto or Mortal Kombat.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling that video games are a form of Free Speech protected by the First Amendment, it seems like a good time to look back at some of the controversies that led the nation's highest court to get involved in the debate. While you've heard the stories behind notorious titles like Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto, here are some video game controversies that might have flown under your radar.

If you like progress bars, that is.

  LOVE Blooms In March

Good news if you're looking for Love.

One-man development army Eskil Steenberg announced a March 25 release date for Love, his procedural online adventure game and perhaps the most ambitious video game ever made by a single person.

...

Now the beta testing is coming to an end, and the game launches on March 25 for the PC, with OSX and LINUX versions planned. There will be a subscription fee to play, but it will likely be far less than Steenberg deserves for this amazing accomplishment.

I love my ship more than I love some of my pets.
