With the Xbox 360 nearly five years old, the editorial staff at IGN put together a new list of the Top 25 Xbox 360 Games. Bethesda Game Studios’ Oblivion and Fallout 3 both made the list — ranking #10 and #2, respectively.
Thanks to all of you for playing the games, and congrats to the devs that worked on these titles.
Wanted to share a few promotions that are currently going on titles from Bethesda Game Studios…
Gamestop has some crazy deals on popular titles, including Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (PS3/360) for $39.99. For more details head here.
Elsewhere, if you’re trying to save on Fallout 3 GOTY on PC — there’s notable deals at both Direct2Drive and Steam. Through Friday, D2D is selling the game at $24.95 (that’s half off). Meanwhile Steam has announced the Bethesda Pack –featuring Fallout 3: GOTY, Morrowind GOTY, and Oblivion GOTY Deluxe for a package price of $69.99 (that’s a total savings of $24.98).
As always, if we see any noteworthy deals, we’ll keep you in the know.
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.
This week we got a note from David Clayman, Executive Editor at IGN, who shared with us plenty of pics of their conference room, which is now a real-life tribute to Vault 101. Below David explains the transformation that took place.
“The conference room was completed by Me, Erik Brudvig, Kevin Janiak, and Peer Schneider. There are a few details that don’t show up that well on camera like the pile of bobby pin lock picks, a fake blood pack, Lincoln’s repeating rifle, and many scattered bottle caps. Also, I personally sewed the extra star on that flag.”
David also mentioned the jukebox plays music from Fallout 3. Pretty sweet, though I’m going to have to re-think my bedroom re-modeling plans. Maybe I’ll rebuild Kvatch instead.
MSN determined the top 50 video games of all time, and luckily we made the list three times with Oblivion, DOOM and Fallout 3. A similar top-50 list from Empire Online examines the best characters of gaming, including Vault Boy. Alucard made it too. He was great in Castlevania III.
Papercraft is really getting out of control. I fear the day that paper finally takes the place of real objects. Like, I’ll be walking to work and realize my shoes are paper shoes. I’ll sit down and say good morning to Matt and his face will come unglued. The walls will fold over and collapse into a pile of colored construction paper, and Todd Howard will emerge from the heap holding an empty bottle of glue, tears in his eyes.
That impressive Fallout 3 laser pistol up there is from Matt Milam of Firebrand Creations. Unfortunately it doesn’t fire paper lasers — yet.
