Bethesda confirms on their Twitter that when the Limited Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Editions  are gone they will be gone for good

Fallout 4 was easily the biggest reveal of E3 2015, helping Bethesda to blow away the competition on the first day of the conference. They even unveiled the Fallout mobile spin-off game, Fallout Shelter. Then to make sure they landed on top Bethesda blasted out the news of an official, functioning Pip-Boy figure bundled in Fallout 4 Limited Edition copies.

The millisecond collectors and hardcore fans of the Fallout series knew they could pre-order the Pip-Boy Edition they laid siege to stores. Leaving hordes of store employees scared for life and shelves barren. Leaving gamers who didn’t join the first battle for the Pip-Boy Edition worried they had missed their chance.

Their hopes grew dimmer after Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations for Bethesda Pete Hines (a man with the longest title in the game industry) detailed the supply of the Pip-Boy Edition; saying that like Fallout 4 itself Pip-Boy production is basically done. Even worse Hines confirmed that no will be produced. In the end though he gave gamers a small amount of hope that not all of the Pip-Boy Editions are gone.

Leaving room for hope that a few retailers out there knowing Pip-Boy Editions would be in high demand held a few copies back. Gamers will have to keep their eyes peeled if they want to get a hold of that Pip-Boy figure. Although they shouldn’t be surprised if no more come on the market because of how special the figure is. The Pip-Boy isn’t simply a collectible figure, it can interface with Fallout 4 similar to Nintendo’s Amiibo’s.

Good luck to any of you out there still hoping to get a hold of a Pip-Boy Edition!

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
