With just a month to go before the big release of Fallout 76, we finally got to play Bethesda's big upcoming survival RPG. Nadia returns with a full report! Plus: We add Fallout: New Vegas to the Top 25 RPG Countdown [download link here]!

In discussing Fallout 76, we hit some of the biggest questions surrounding its upcoming release. For instance, what will it be like to play solo? Is it really that easy to troll your friends with nukes? And does it actually feel like a Fallout game? We'll get to see for ourselves pretty soon with the upcoming Fallout 76 beta, but here's an early peek at what to expect.

Also in this episode: We continue our Top 25 RPG countdown with Fallout New Vegas! Check out my piece exploring the Making of Fallout New Vegas from last year, then settle in and listen as Nadia and I talk about why Obsidian's spinoff deserves to be counted among the best RPGs ever.

Show Description

It's a week in which Axe of the Blood God pushes the big red button as Nadia returns from her trip to West Virginia to share her experience with Fallout 76. Kat and Nadia talk about what it's like to play solo, the nuclear quest, and whether it fits with the character of the series. Then Kat and Nadia add a new entry to their Top 25 RPG list: Fallout New Vegas! Listen as they talk about Fallout New Vegas' classic quests, its rich history, and the unique choices that help separate it from the rest of the 3D Fallout games.
