Speaking of Kotaku, they posted information on a new community project called The Wasteland Commentaries. It’s purpose is for fans to “create an audio commentary track for Fallout 3 that is accessible in-game via audio holotapes. If successful the Wasteland Commentaries will take some discussions of the game into the spaces that inspired them and provide greater context for reflection.” Sounds cool. To read more about the project, head here.
Finally, through my Google Alerts, I found this column at The Whitworthian, which looks back at The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Here’s an excerpt:
“The modding community for the Elder Scrolls games is huge and going strong. Almost anything that’s in the game can be modified, expanded, or completely removed, and nearly anything that can be dreamed up can be added in. My copy of “Morrowind” is currently running something like 50 mods, three or four of which are my own.”
For those in the UK, wanted to let you know about the Eurogamer Expo 2009. Taking place on October 27/28 in Leeds and October 30/31 in London, folks will be able check out Rogue Warrior, WET, Wheelspin, and Medieval Games at our booth.
Additionally, on each day (and at both locations), you’ll be able to check out Paul Wedgwood’s presentation of Brink. Paul will be showing the game at 1:30 p.m. each day.
The latest developer profile for Splash Damage is up on their site. This time around, we get to meet Brink Animator Boris ‘Zobbo’ Lowinger.
Before coming to Splash Damage, Boris worked on games like MotoGP, Republic: The Revolution, the popular quiz franchise Buzz!, as well as the short film “This Way Up“, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview…
What are the best and worst parts of your job?
Best part of the job is animating people/weapons/miscellaneous bits and bobs and getting things like our SMART animations looking great.
The worst part for me is that I’m sometimes too busy to join in the internal play-tests. Well, that and having to sit near mantegra.
From the Ramblin’ Wreck of Georgia Tech, this week we meet Bethesda forum moderator Chris Bryant (aka Ratwar). Chris recently graduated from Georgia Tech and is looking for a job as a civil engineer. Also, today happens to be his birthday! Happy Birthday!
How did first make your way to the Bethesda Game Studios forums?
Well, it wasn’t the puzzle box! I actually came because I just couldn’t get enough of Morrowind by simply playing it. At first I just lurked reading the Morrowind General forum, but eventually I decided to start actually participating in the discussions, so I joined up.
In stores today, you can pick up Medieval Games — Vir2L Studios’ latest Wii title. Allowing up to four players, you can party all knight (ha!) across 30 unique mini-games and three different game boards.
Earlier this week we checked out the first chapter of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in our theater. The game dropped jaws and now a number of devs are busy playing through the full game. Uncharted 2 isn’t the only game getting lots of buzz — new releases Brütal Legend and Demon’s Souls having quickly become office favorites, too.
Now back to playing Uncharted…enjoy the rest of your weekend.

This week we’ve got a special modding interview to very celebrate a special occasion. As you may have seen on other sites, a mod for Fallout 3 was created so that forum member *Puffy*Puppy* (real name Kristy) could propose to her boyfriend Shawn.
“Hi, is there any way to get an idea of what it would take to propose to my boyfriend through Fallout 3? Via an add-on, or a mission, or a separate disk? Does something like this take a millionaire to commission it? lol. Because I am just a dollaraire. Is there a way of doing it myself and then kinda creating a level or something?”
