Explore Fallout: New Vegas Together With Upcoming Multiplayer Mod

Be a lone wanderer no more. With a new mod from Mr. Mouse (also known as Corporal), players of the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas will be able to explore the Mojave Wasteland and even complete quests with friends.

The way the mod works is that one player hosts while the others are simulating the world through that player. The players' worlds synchronize around that of the host to deliver a uniformed experience for all players involved. That presents some issues, as a dead NPC can instantly fail a quest for the group. The developer goes into more details in a Reddit thread about the mod.

The New Vegas: Multiplayer mod hasn't entered public testing yet, but that hasn't stopped the developer from showing off some footage of it in action. You can check out a video from the modder below.

Pac-Man And His Ghostly Foes Star In New Funko Figures Line

The toy company behind the Pop imprint of pop culture vinyl figures, is releasing their take on the cast of Pac-Man in March. Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and all those dastardly ghosts are getting the Funko treatment with beady black eyes and extra big heads. 

Pac-Man is pretty much just a big head already, so the adjustment isn’t as striking as seeing Peyton Manning's enormous noggin. There’s no word on when these figures will be up for pre-order, but they will be releasing alongside Dark Souls III’s Red Knight in March

For more information about when Pac-Man will gobble his way onto your desk, head here. You can also check out our other Pop figure coverage here.
