Fallout 4

I don't know about you, but I think I'm coming down with something. Cough, cough, yes I'm definitely coming down with something, and I suspect I'll finally succumb at around 12am Tuesday morning. Completely coincidentally, Tuesday is when Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) releases. Anticipating an infectious sickness bug, Bethesda's Pete Hines has helpfully released a signed sick note (opens in new tab) that you can present to your boss/teacher/authority figure.

Fallout 4 sick note

You've already preloaded (opens in new tab) Fallout 4, right? If, like me, you'd rather wait for the reviews, you'll be pleased to hear that they're going live today at 8:00 EST / 13:00 GMT.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
