Hm. It looks like there may actually be a Fallout 3 game in the works.

Metafilter thread with links.

Damn. Damn!

The Fallout series, if you didn't know, are highly atmospheric retro-post-nuclear holocaust PC RPG games, by the legendary Black Isle studio. Fallout went through Fallout, Fallout 2, and a couple of less-well regarded RTS versions before their publisher, Interplay, crashed and burned a few years ago, and all hope for Fallout 3 was lost. Probably didn't help that the single-player CRPG is moribund, and most gaming action has moved to consoles.

But now it looks like F3 may happen after all.

I also didn't realize that the F1 and F2 soundtracks are available, which is all kinds of cool.


kuzu(reru), kuzu(su)

meaning: crumble, collapse

崩壊 == houkai == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) collapse, decay [physics], crumbling, breaking down, caving in
土砂崩れ == doshakuzure == (noun) landslide

Top radical is 'mountain' (山). Bottom radical is used phonetically to express 'collapse'. Henshall suggests taking the bottom radical as two 'months' (月), and as a mnemonic: 'Mountain crumbles away in just two months.'
