Taking a break from QuakeCon prep, here’s some of our favorite recent stories from around the web, including fan videos and amazing mods.
Last week at PAX Australia, Wade K. Savage debuted his Fallout: New Vegas tribute — Fallout: Lanius. The teaser is already up, and a recent tweet from Mr. Savage indicates we’ll be seeing the full film online very soon… we can’t wait.
Elsewhere, the newest Fallout: Nuka Break fan film from Wayside Creations has made it’s way online. Watch the 25-minute Fallout: Nuka Break – Red Star on the MachinimaPrime YouTube channel.
Looking for a video with more Skyrim flavor? Kotaku recently posted about TheDangerousBrew’s new fan flick, Journey’s End.
YouTuber Toby Turner (aka Tobuscus) has made a name for himself creating literal interpretations of movie/tv/game trailers. For his newest video, he’s tackled our E3 trailer for Wolfenstein: New Order, and it’s literally the funniest thing we’ve seen all day.
From Tyrannicon, the animators of popular videos like Skyrim: 300 comes Skyrim at the Movies: Superman. The fan film created for Nerdist features memorable moments from the original four Superman films — yes, even Superman IV’s Nuclear Man belting out, “Destroy Superman!”.

It’s been a loooong time since we did our last modding interview on Bethesda Blog, but I thought it was something that would be fun to bring back.
This week we’ve Scott Chaunce (aka Soolie). A college student hailing from Tasmania, Scott’s gotten some attention for his popular Tropical Skyrim mod…
What compelled you to create this project? Do you live in a cold weather area and needed a vacation?
I guess I never really ‘decided’ to create this project, it sort of just happened. Before I started work on it, I had always wanted to play through a tropical/desert climate in an Elder Scrolls game. Because I enjoy creating new environments and landscapes, I decided I might have a go at creating a few small tropical islands and deserts just for fun. However, I started to get a little excited about it, and I wanted to see results before I had even started. So, to satisfy the little part of me that just wanted to know what it would look like. I quickly made up a few desert textures and applied them to the tundra area. I then launched the game, turned the grass off and what I saw surprised me.
