Sports Talk Radio Discusses Fallout?!?

On KFAN Sports Radio‘s weekly gaming podcast, Video Games Weekly, the hosts discuss Fallout 3 with Game Informer’s Matt Miller (who as you know, wrote the Fallout 3 feature in GI). The podcast also addresses new releases (The Bigs, The Darkness, and my new favorite Pac Man: Championship Ediditon), as well as other topics about the gaming industry. As the podcast comes from their radio broadcast, the hosts also address questions from the audience.

My favorite moment is their sound bite of one of my favorite (and most hilarious) lines of dialogue from any game ever. Also, it sounds like Matt Miller would have been pretty envious of me, since I got to screen Transformers last night.

Pretty cool show with enjoyable hosts to listen to. Check out the podcast here

The first of a series, Inside the Vault, we have a Q&A with Emil Pagliarulo, the lead designer of Fallout 3. I asked if he would answer some fan questions from the forums, he kindly obliged.

What is your favorite type of game to play (RTS,FPS,RPG etc)

Honestly, I’m the Peter Petrelli of gaming. I absorb whatever games are in close proximity. I don’t discriminate. Here’s what I’m currently playing on PC: “Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened,” ARMA, Neverwinter Nights 2, Lord of the Rings Online, the Avernum IV demo, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. On the Xbox 360, I’m playing Spider-Man 3, Command and Conquer, the Halo 3 beta, Guitar Hero 2, and some Marvel Ultimate Alliance with the new downloadable heroes. On PS2, it’s Guitar Hero 1 and Thrillville with my kids. Zelda and Warioware on the Wii. If I had a PS3, I’d be playing Resistance: Fall of Man.

Post-Nuclear Racing

Don’t worry, it’s not a spin off title we’re working on. The Beamer you’re looking at was designed by lead producer Gavin Carter using the addictive customization tools included with Forza 2. Initally Gavin designed a blue Audi, but decided on the 1997 BMW M3 E36. The design work took about 20 hours of effort, but it looks like all the effort really paid off.

Gavin isn’t the only one designing cars. Tim Lamb created a Vault-Tec Mini Cooper. Feeling a bit competitive after seeing Gavin’ later model, he said he’ll be working on a new design soon. Hopefully something with a little more horsepower.

If you’re out there and have a Forza 2 design that can compete with these, send them to us.

To view more screens of Gavin’s ride, as well as Tim’s Mini, view the rest of the story.
