Couple interesting Fallout bits worth checking out this weekend…
Spotted while reading The Verge, Flickr user LockVanish has taken pictures both in DC and Las Vegas and matched them with screenshots from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Be sure to admire all his efforts within his Fallout Flickr sets.
In unrelated (but equally awesome) news, last week Kotaku featured a post highlighted breathtaking Fallout 3 screenshots taken by Flickr user Anthemios. Learn the mods he used to make screens like the one above here.
Want to drool over more screenshots? Dead End Thrills’ Duncan Harris has followed up his Skyrim work with some mod-enabled Fallout 3 screens.
During today’s QuakeCon panel, “The Game of Making Games”, Todd Howard shared that his current favorite Skyrim video is Skyrim: 300 (Battle of Thermopylae). Created by Tyrannicon (maker of The Great Battles of Skyrim series), the video pays homage to the epic battle from Zach Snyder’s 300.
To create the video, Tyrannicon used the following mods:

In Dishonored, using the Bend Time ability allows Corvo to slow down the action and take a more tactical approach to various scenarios. Inspired by the game, tmdoodleschannel’s video on YouTube demonstrates a bizarro version of Bend Time — letting viewers see his fan art created in a matter of minutes.
To all the moms out there, we wish you a Happy Mother’s Day! We can’t thank you enough for the amazing things you do.
Tim from Vancouver can attest to this. For his birthday he asked his mother, Vera, to create a Skyrim cake featuring Alduin. Visit her blog, Baking Obsession, and see how she proved her Level 100 cake-making skills.
