Over encumbered with stuff to do on this Monday afternoon? Take a break and enjoy Mega64’s Fallout 3 tribute.

Yesterday the highly-anticipated exhibit, The Art of Videogames, opened at The Smithsonian’s American Art Museum. The exhibit features games like the original Fallout, Fallout 3, and id Software’s DOOM II on display — all voted in by members of the community.
If you’re planning on visiting Washington, DC between now and September 30th, you should definitely check out the exhibit. With the Cherry Blossoms near full bloom, I’ll soon be heading down to the National Mall to check it out and take some pics.
On April 3rd, BGS fans can pick up the award-winning classics, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3, in a new double pack combo. Available in North America, the Double Pack will be available on Xbox 360 and PC for $29.99 and $19.99, respectively.
I was going to put up Double Mint-inspired lyrics to get you excited, but after seeing this video on Kotaku, I thought you’d enjoy it more….
Beginning March 16, visitors to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in DC will be able to check out The Art of Video Games — featuring Fallout 3 & DOOM II!
Before the exhibit begins, the Smithsonian Institute is seeking photographs and artwork that show how games can inspire creativity. If you’ve got something Fallout or DOOM-related (or any game for that matter), be sure to upload it to the newly-created Art of Video Games Flickr page.
