Fallout 4 Contains More Dialogue Than Fallout 3 And Skyrim Combined

Bethesda has confirmed Fallout 4 will feature a humongous storyline containing more dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined. This is an astonishing feat given the detailed and expansive environments which were paramount to both Fallout 3 and Skyrim’s narrative. It’s difficult to comprehend how the 111,000 lines of dialogue will pan out and if the voice acting refers mainly to leading characters or obscure NPCs. The dialogue was amassed over many years and has the potential to offer the most enriching story ever devised in a video game.

Unfortunately, Erik Todd Dellums, who voiced Three Dog from Fallout 3 will not be returning and didn’t record any lines. This is a real shame and would have created a sense of synergy between Fallout 3 and its successor. Nevertheless, I’m fairly confident Fallout 4 will meet the expectation of its very passionate, and loyal community. Only time will tell, but early indications about the game evokes a great deal of enthusiasm. Graphically, it doesn’t look like a huge leap but mod support should help in this regard.

I’m pleased to see Bethesda slowly divulging information about the game through public social media channels. Currently, Fallout 4 is scheduled for release on November 10th 2015, and coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Hopefully, the PC version will be well-optimized and actually allow for official mod support.

The Pope’s iPad Sold for $30,500 at an Uruguay Charity Auction

It looks like technology brought some support for the poor over in Uruguay earlier this week. The Castells auction house reportedly hosted a charitable auction, having Pope Francis’ old iPad up for the taking. There are a lot of antique fanatics out there, and such an item was bound to attract some attention.

Reports state that a buyer, whose identity is not known, bid a large sum for the old iPad, having the device scoop up a sum of $30,500. The iPad is said to have inscribed “His Holiness Francisco. Servizio Internet Vatican, March 2013” on the back and comes with the Vatican’s signed certificate and a black Logitech keyboard.

Auctions such as this are perceived by a lot of people to be gatherings where rich people go and bid large sums of money, while sipping expensive champagne and eat caviar, in order to fill up their ego and other people’s pockets. This time around, all the money raised went to a local school for the poor.

This act proves yet again that Pope Francis’ is extremely open to technology and believes it is a “way to foster dialogue across different faiths”. Whether or not you believe the same thing, just think of this: what do you use to check in at your favourite coffee shop or friends on the other side of the world?
