Be sure to check out the rest here.

TGIF! As you countdown to the weekend, here’s some coverage for you to read up on.
With Halloween tomorrow, I thought I’d share all the entries in Joystiq’s 2009 Pumpkin Carving Contest. Among all the awesome entries, you’ll find Fallout contributions (pics 55, 57 — shown above, and 80). Really great stuff — bums me out I never got around to carving one.
Moving along, a new blog post at Bitmob was motivated by a tale of evil things you can do in Fallout 3. So out of curiosity, Dan Hsu asked folks around the gaming industry to share their memories of “doing evil” in games. Among others, the list includes Todd Howard and Emil Pagliarulo, as well as some other guys tied to the Fallout franchise (Obsidian’s Feargus Urquhart and Chris Avellone). Find out their evil deeds here.
The latest AVault podcast (#53) is up and features Pete Hines. Give it a listen (as I’m doing right now) to hear him discuss Fallout 3, Brink, id Software and more.
Lastly, Strategy Informer recently put up a new preview for Rogue Warrior. You can read it here. Elsewhere, you can check out the game’s achievements at none other than Xbox 360 Achievements.
The 27th Annual Golden Joystick Awards wrapped up a little while ago and Fallout 3 was announced the winner of the night’s final award: Ultimate Game of the Year. Earlier in the show Fallout 3 was named PC Game of the Year. Additionally, the game received runner up honors in both the Soundtrack of the Year and Xbox Game of the Year categories.
Congrats to the team for their hard work on the game, and a big thanks to everyone that voted for Fallout 3!
Eurogamer has video of Paul Wedgwood’s Brink presentation from Eurogamer Expo 2009 in Leeds. One caveat — the presentation actually doesn’t feature gameplay.
Still, if you’re wanting to learn more about the game, you’ll definitely want to watch.
Update: From the looks of Eurogamer_Expo’s Twitter page, there will be some tickets available for the expo’s trip to London tomorrow.
As mentioned last week, Eurogamer Expo 2009 is currently taking place. The Leeds portion of the expo has concluded — with Paul Wedgwood showing the game to large crowds on both days.
Out of the Leeds show, there’s some new coverage to share. First, in a new preview at Eurogamer, Paul assured everyone that the PC version of the game will have dedicated servers. For more on their coverage of the game, read here. Elsewhere, you can find impressions of the game from folks that attended the expo at both SavyGamer and PS3Center.net. You can also find a new preview for the game at NowGamer.
The Eurogamer Expo moves to London this Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, tickets for the expo are already sold out, but we’ll keep you updated on any news that comes out of the show.
On the print side of things, Losi shared with me the latest cover story for Brink at VietGame. For many of you, getting your hands on a copy of the magazine might be difficult, so I’ve posted the cover below. If you do have a chance to check it out, there’s six pages of coverage, plus an interview with Creative Director Richard Ham.
In other print news, the latest issue of EDGE hit newsstands this week. Be on the lookout, as it features eight pages of new impressions on the game.
Finally, German fansite BrinkGamers has reached 1.0 status. You can check out the site here (looks nice!)– and if you’re interested in doing a fan site of your own, download our fansite kit at the official site for Brink.
