    @Varwulf probably trying to diminish traffic to their servers. The last thing I read in their Facebook profile is that they had doubled the amount of servers but it wasn't enough. They're quadrupling them.

    Yeah, here's their forum post on the Fallout giveaway:

    "
    Please note that all three classic Fallout titles are pending right holder change. Sadly, to the best of our knowledge, we'll be forced to remove Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics from our offer. That doesn't mean, however, that you won't be able to download them if they are already a part of collection by then. Secure your copies today (or anytime before Saturday, December 14, at 1:59PM GMT)!
    . . .
    We're currently experiencing server issues due to the highest traffic ever noted on GOG.com. We did anticipate much interest in our 2013 DRM-Free Winter Sale, as well as our Fallout 1,2, & Tactics giveaway, but the number of visits exceeded our highest expectations by far. And we mean FAR. For today, we've prepared double the number of servers that were needed to support our highest day in traffic to date, but it turned out to be not nearly sufficient. We're working on quadrupling our server supply, now.
    "

    Bethesda has no games on GOG, as far as I know. -_- (At least, I've been waiting for DRM-free Doom 3 for bloody ages...) Seriously, get Fallout now.

    I already have them on CDs, but I "bought" them on GOG anyway.

    Gonna play some Fallout (1) tonight. Just installed Fallout FIXT megamod. The game looks so much better in full HD too :)

    There's one thing I've ever wondered about the Fallout universe. It is quite well established what happened in North America, China, Europe and the Middle-East. But what about Central and South America and Africa? Is there a canonical definition of what happened there? Were they badly hit by the world crisis? Were they hit by nuclear warheads as well? Or are they the last green paradises on Earth?

    I haven't played Fallout yet, and dunno the lore that well... But a global thermonuclear war would certainly result in a prolonged nuclear winter. Even if neutral countries survived direct nuclear strikes, they would have suffered catastrophic crop failure, climate crisis and likely breakdown of society.

    Nuclear warheads hit Australia, causing the entire continent to become an irradiated toxic wasteland full of mutants.

    This has also happened in the Fallout universe.

    Well a Nuclear winter is better than being hit by warheads AND the FEV virus... so Australia is out... What about South America and Africa?

    Well as expected the Fallout games (1, 2, and tactics) are no longer for sale on GoG.com. Also its apparently no longer for sale on Steam either :(

    Hopefully this is all just a bunch of legal stuff



    and they can be put back on sale shortly. I've enjoyed Fallout from what I've played so far :)

    I lost the promo, only saw this thread now ... :(! Tempted in resort on the dark arts to scale the odds of injustice here... but no, not for now :)!
