Around the web and on newsstands

Here’s a few interesting mentions that I thought I’d share.

Starting on the print side, there’s a special issue of PC Gamer out now called “How To: The Ultimate Guide to DIY Gaming” that provides some cool stuff for Oblivion and Fallout 3. For Oblivion, they have a walkthrough called “Create your own zombie massacre,” that offers a 12-step process for creating your own zombie-fest with the PC version of the game. As for Fallout 3, there’s a section at the back of the magazine called “Gaming Papercraft!” that includes a cut out version of our Vault Boy bobblehead. I’m not the best with arts and crafts, so I haven’t yet assembled one, but the final product as it’s shown on the cover of the magazine looks like it’s worth the effort.

In other print news, the UK magazine 360 has a new cover story on Fallout 3. Along with shedding some new light on the game, the article also serves as a crash course for learning more about Fallout 1 and 2 — sharing information about the series’ timeline, factions, vaults, and more. For more information on the magazine, check their official site.

For those that have been following our updates, we’re happy to learn that we made the Final Four in The Escapist’s March Mayhem Developers’ Challenge. Our next matchup is set for Saturday against Turbine — the developers behind The Lord of the Rings Online. The winner will take on either Valve or Harmonix a week from today for the “championship.”
