GOG.com is offering Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics for free for the next two days as part of their Winter Promo giveaway. That's a savings of $29.97 compared to their regular price.
The Fallout series is a post-apocalyptic action role playing game series in which you assume the role of a Vault Dweller, the survivor of a nuclear apocalypse who must now roam the radiation-blasted landscape looking for parts to restore the water making ability of their home Vault. Fallout 1 and 2 continue the same story line, set 80 years apart from one another, while Fallout Tactics is actually a spinoff game that focuses on tactical combat rather than role-playing.
Like much of GOG.com's catalog, the three free Fallout games are older - Fallout originally debuted in 1997, Fallout 2 in 1998 and Fallout Tactics in 2001. Also, like many of GOG.com's games, the three Fallout games are not "native" Mac (or Windows) ports - in fact, they run inside of a DOS emulator. Having said that, they work on a wide variety of Intel-based Macs and are a lot of fun to play, so don't let a little emulation stand in your way of having a great time - for free.
Editor's note: As I posted this on Friday GOG.com's web site seemed a bit overwhelmed with traffic, so don't be surprised if you have to retry a few times before the game's download.
