iPhone 17 Slim Design, Camera Features, and Launch

Fallout London

The Fallout London total conversion mod for Fallout 4 was supposed to launch on St. George's Day, April 23rd, but Bethesda's next-generation update disrupted those plans. We last heard from the team over a month ago when they announced the inevitable delay without being able to nail down another date. This morning, Project Manager Dean Carter (known online as Prilladog) posted an update on the Fallout London Discord channel. To be clear, the message isn't mainly about the release date; it is instead an endorsement of GOG, which helped the Fallout London team a lot with the mod's distribution. The […]
