I'm sure that there will not be many people reading this posting right now, since I have let the community die, but for those loyal patrons still checking in, or for our esteemed guests that have discovered us by chance, I am pleased to announce that I will be taking steps soon, in order to bring the SNM back to its former glory!

The hiatus that we have been under was due to both personal and professional reasons, and I have finally gotten back to a point in my life where I can start maintaining this site, and providing the time and love that it needs to foster a healthy community.

So, with all of that being said, start expecting regular updates again over the coming weeks. Content will start off a bit slow, as, with a relatively dead community, there is only so much content worth putting out. But I will be going through extensive efforts to bring in new patrons, and as the community grows again, and I introduce some exciting new features currently in their experimental stages, you all can start expecting the SNM to cater to all of our patrons needs, once again.

Thank you all for being so patient with us. We hope to earn your loyalty and friendship again, and soon.

As of earlier today, over Bethesda.Net, the first static news over future Fallout 4 content was finally released to the public, and the news released was a real doozy. Before getting into the new content, however, it was noted that as of March 1st of this year, the Season Pass price, will be going up from 29.99 USD, to $49.99 USD (£24.99 to £39.99 GBP; $49.95 to $79.95 AUD), as an adjustment price for further content being planned by Bethesda.

So, for those of you that have not gotten your hands on a Season Pass, yet, and are interested in doing so before the price goes up, make sure to get it now while you still can! Bethesda has already confirmed that all collective DLC for Fallout 4, will, at minimum, be at a 60 USD value, which means that the Seasonal Pass will be the best deal, right now, for those of you interested in purchasing the entire Fallout 4 experience (until the game is re-released as a full package, at the very least).

Now, onto the important news:

Price: $9.99 USD | £7.99 GBP | $16.95 AUD
Release: March 2016

"The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons like the all-new lightning chain gun. Even customize their paint schemes and choose their voices!"

Wasteland Workshop
Price: $4.99 USD | £3.99 GBP | $7.95 AUD
Release: April 2016

"With the Wasteland Workshop, design and set cages to capture live creatures – from raiders to Deathclaws! Tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers. The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixie tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!"

Far Harbor
Price: $24.99 USD | £19.99 GBP | $39.95 AUD
Release: May 2016

"A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours."

Hey guys. Happy to bring you the news that Bethesda has just posted on social media that the first Fallout 4 DLC is "not far off." Nobody knows exactly what this could mean, but Bethesda has also mentioned that they plan to overhaul survival mode, adding food and sleep management and will feature diseases as well. Whether or not this is part of the DLC or will be in a patch is not yet known. Here are some screenshots of Bethesda's posts:

Make sure to update your copies of Fallout 4, as the 1.3 update has been released by Bethesda for both the PC, and now the consoles, which fixes quite a few bugs, while also making a few subtle changes to the base game.

Some of the more interesting highlights, are as follows:

1) When picking up objects, they can now be rotated around, allowing for the decorators in us to get even more OCD about our homes!
2) A prevalent companion glitch was finally fixed, which had made it where companions could be permanently affected by radiation sickness, decreasing their stats and carry weight.
3) The Killshot perk has been fixed, so do not get used to those permanent 99% chance headshots while in V.A.T.S.
4) A bunch of quest fixes, as Fallout 4's initial release saw to many game breaking bugs that could outright break the main questline.
