Here’s more Fallout news/coverage we thought you’d be interested in…

We’ll start at Planet Fallout, where they’ve started State of Modding — a new interview series where they talk to modders within the community. The first two interviews, JaySuS and DarN are up, with more on the way.

Speaking of mods, if you’re looking for new stuff to experience in the game, Hellforge has a new feature on 50 Mods You Should Be Playing For Fallout 3. Topping the list is the Enclave Commander mod by that we featured earlier this year, followed by Weapon Mod Kits, which we just featured today.

There’s a couple interesting articles elsewhere worth reading. At IGN, Rus McLaughlin has put together an  eight-page History of Fallout feature — that discusses the franchise all the way back to its Wasteland roots. Meanwhile, Clive Thompson reacts to post-apocalyptic atmosphere of Fallout 3 in a column for Wired. Here’s a snippet:

“The big difference with Fallout 3 is that it depicts — with remarkable fidelity — a city that actually exists, and that I’ve often visited. When I emerged from Tenleytown Station, I knew what it was supposed to look like: a bustling city scene of briefcase-toting wonks, trucks delivering packages, people buying coffee at corner stores. When I visited the location in Fallout 3, I saw nothing but the rusting hulk of a bombed-out blue car, with smoke billowing over the buckled asphalt and buildings as brittle as fall leaves”

On a lighter note, I suggest checking out 1Up Editor Kurtis Seid’s blog on entitled, “What I eat when I play Fallout 3.” Check out the brahmin feast above. Mmmm…..brahmin!
