Above is the latest edition of Game Trailers’ Music in Gaming series. This week’s discussion focuses primarily on distribution of music on gaming platforms — with Fallout 3 composer, Inon Zur, sharing his opinions on the matter. Next Sunday, the final segment on this series will air, with the panel discussing the future of composition in games — should be interesting to hear Inon’s thoughts on that.
Elsewhere, there’s a new press coverage out of Europe to check out. At Gamers Universe, there’s a lengthy video interview with Pete where he sounds off on topics ranging from VATs to DLC discussion. New interviews can also be found at Bit-Tech, GamersGlobal, and Guardian.co.uk. From the latter, here’s a snippet of Pete discussing pacifism in Fallout 3:
Can you tag Medicine, Repair and Barter, and focusing on those skills, still be able to complete the game?
Pete: Sure. We recently had someone play through the game and finish it while only killing one thing very early in the game…a Radroach. I’m not saying I recommend everyone run out and try to play the game as a pacifist, but if you want to give it a try, it has been done.

IGN’s UK branch has a new preview up on the game. Here’s a snippet:
“Our first steps outside the Vault reinforce the fact that Fallout 3 is gorgeous, its landscape a considerable improvement over Oblivion’s rendering of Cyrodiil, and despite the bleak nature necessitated by the post-apocalyptic setting it inspires awe on a regular basis. While we’ll stop some way short of saying it’s one of the best looking games of the current generation — textures can prove a little flat and it sometimes lacks the high-def sheen that marks out the frontline of other AAA titles — it’s certainly one of the most atmospheric this side of BioShock.”
Finally, over at the BBC, Mark Cieslak put Fallout 3 atop his list of the Best Games on Show at E3.
