Amazon Prime Video's Fallout show seems hotter than a nuclear bomb. In fact, the TV series has now led to such a strong interest in the video game franchise that a popular modding website has had to issue a statement about "heavily degraded" performance.

Spotted by Eurogamer, Nexus Mods revealed that downloads have more than doubled since the Fallout series debuted earlier this month.
