This morning I received an email from Todd asking that very question. By the time I had watched about 30 seconds this Fallout 3 video by YouTube user agoministrator, it seemed like an undeniable fact.
Happy Monday everyone! Here’s the latest web coverage for you to check out.
Fallout 3 is nominated in three categories (Game of the Year, Favorite Weapon, and Favorite Environment) in the Guy’s Choice Awards at Spike. Head to Gametrailers to vote.
New reviews for Broken Steel have popped up online. Here’s a snippet from Gaming Age’s review:
“All in all, Broken Steel winds up being a great diversion and a good excuse to re-visit the Capitol Wastelands. Between the continuation of the storyline, the tougher enemies, and the great amount of action given, it’s well worth the $10 to take a ride with the Brotherhood of Steel one more time.”
The weekend’s nearly over — for many of us, it’s been full of games. Popular games at the office this week include Resident Evil 5, Killzone 2, Dawn of War 2, and Peggle — which has found it’s way onto many of our iPhones. Having just purchased it on DS, I’m trying to show some restraint.
Jay Woodward, Pink Deathclaw Rustler: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin and misc. board games (Amun Re, Dominion, Space Dealer, and/or Race for the Galaxy).
Andrew Scharf: Resident Evil 5, Peggle for iPhone.
Craig Lafferty, Senior Producer: Sacred 2, Zen Pinball, and Tiger Woods 2009.
Mike Dulany, Programmer: Peggle (iPhone), RE:5, Killzone 2.
As many of you know, Cormac McCarthy’s award-winning novel, The Road, was a major influence for our development team while working on Fallout 3. Originally slated for release last Fall, the movie is now releasing this year on October 16th.
A new trailer for the film is up — check it out here. I smell a movie night for the office.
Splash Damage’s community guy, Steve ‘Badman’ Hessel, gave me a head’s up on three new developer profiles up on the Splash Damage site. In their latest “Things You Were Too Afraid to Ask Feature,” we get to learn more about Online Services Programmer Ed ‘MrEd’ Reid, Programmer Diogo ‘fozi’ Teixeira, and Technical Environment Artist Radek ‘ElDonaldo’ Szczepanczyk.
We continue to work with Splash Damage on a new project, and we’ll be sharing more details on the game soon.
With more than a dozen new reviews for Broken Steel, I thought I’d share some of the latest links. At Gamer 2.0, Joshua Schwartzmann wrote the following:
With a solid new campaign, an improved level cap, dozens of new perks and tons of powerful weapons at your disposal, Broken Steel is hands down some of the best content Fallout 3 has to offer. With two previous add-ons already giving fans plenty to explore, Broken Steel really pushes the boundaries of what you can come to expect from future downloadable additions. This is the most complete and well-rounded addition to Fallout 3 yet, and anyone can expect to spend hours relishing in what it has to offer.
Additional reviews can be found at the following sites:

Bethesda is also doing Oblivion books. Will this be a continuation of the Oblivion story, or will it lead into another game or product?
Pete: It’s not a continuation of Oblivion but it does fit into… so it’s not like “well, Martin sacrificed himself and Tamriel was saved and next day what happened…” It takes place years or some period of time after that.
As we’ve got more news to share, we’ll let you know.
In my last post for Community Scrapbook update, we asked you guys to grab screenshots of the homes you’ve created (or at least touched up). I received plenty of great submissions, and I thought I’d share some of our favorites. Above is Burger Boy by eldiabs.
