We get a lot of questions here at Bethblog HQ. Mainly about werewolves. However, over the last few weeks we’ve received more than a few inquiries about purchasing Fallout 3 DLC on Steam separately. Today we have a pretty satisfactory answer on the issue: Yes You Can.

In a fitting event to mark the birthday of Washington, DC, Steam now features all five Fallout 3 add-ons for individual purchase. In fact, here’s a handy link to all of the DLC pages on the Steam store. Please note: the Steam DLC is only compatible with the Steam version of Fallout 3. That said, happy content downloading.

We’ll start at Gamerzines. They have a two part interview (1, 2) with Brian Fargo that’s worth checking out. You can also read their preview on the game by downloading PS3Zine #37.

You can find more Brian Fargo interviews at X360 Achievements and GameReactor. Additionally, new previews for the game are up at Atomic Gamer and Gaming Angels. Here’s an excerpt from the former:

“For a game that’s coming near the end of this year, Hunted already looks very polished, with great animations, solid fighting situations, and interesting tactics as the two fighters take advantage of their strengths and minimize their weaknesses.”

Roundup: Fallout 3 DLC captures more awards

The downloadable content for Fallout 3 may have earned you a few digital trophies, but now it’s earning the team that made it some real metal. That’s Todd up there above, graciously accepting Machinima.com’s Inside Gaming Award for Bethesda’s post-release support of the game.

G4’s X-Play also saw fit to bestow its award for “Best DLC” to Fallout 3’s Broken Steel add-on, specifically. Check out the full presentation here.

As the end of the decade draws near, more sites are rolling out their “Game of the Decade” selections. The Guardian is the latest; Morrowind and Oblivion made the top 30, while Fallout 3 cracked the top 10.

Looking ahead to 2010, MSN UK reminds you that Brink is one of the games to look out for, saying: “If immediately accessible and flowing movement weren’t enough of a draw, Brink uses state-of-the-art graphics and physics.”

On a ridiculous note, Bethesda environment artist Megan Sawyer passed along this video of someone controlling their Christmas lights with a Guitar Hero peripheral. What?
