Why Fallout Fans Should Be Excited For Wasteland 3

Why Fallout Fans Should Be Excited For Wasteland 3

Throughout the ‘90s, Brian Fargo was eager to create a sequel to his 1988 post-apocalyptic RPG, Wasteland. There was just one problem: Electronic Arts owned the rights. More importantly, EA wasn’t interested in funding a Wasteland sequel. In 1997, Fargo and his team at Interplay Productions got so tired of waiting on EA that they released a spiritual successor to Wasteland called Fallout. Over the years, Fallout has grown into a massive franchise of its own, which is now owned by Bethesda. However, the two series still share much of the same DNA. If you’re eager to play another game in the vein of the classic Fallout titles, then look no further than Wasteland 3.

“People don't often realize it, but the Wasteland franchise precedes Fallout,” says Wasteland 3’s game director Tim Campbell. “But now that we've had a resurgence of the Wasteland franchise, there is a perception that Wasteland is kind of like Fallout, and it's funny to think that it is actually the other way around.”

Top Of The Table – Counter Attack

Top Of The Table – Counter Attack

One of my favorite things about the board gaming hobby is the way games explore such a wide array of concepts, themes, and genres. The constraint of abstraction that is necessary to reduce a situation into something that can be clearly articulated on the table breeds a fascinating array of results. For longtime tabletop enthusiasts, much of the joy of a new game is discovering the way the designers and artists have crafted something that "feels" like the concept or activity the game presents, whether that idea is Lovecraftian monsters or bird-watching

This week, we're looking at a sphere of board gaming that rarely gets attention – the sports board game. In this case, the game at hand is Counter Attack, a wonderful project that captures much of the excitement and tactical thrill of soccer. And to offer the thoughtful perspective on the game that it deserves, my colleague Matthew Kato stepped in to check out the game, and offer his take as a guest columnist. He's had many years of experience with an array of sports video games, and because we're played board games together as well, I knew he'd have something meaningful to share about exploring this meeting point between sports and tabletop fun. 

Here's what Matthew Kato had to say about Counter Attack.
