Since Fallout 3 was released, I’ve received numerous emails asking about where you can buy music from the game. If you pre-ordered the game from Gamestop, you might have been lucky enough to get a few of the game’s tracks on our soundtrack sampler. If you’re looking for more tunes from the game, there’s a pretty good iMix up with songs you can purchase from the game.
To find it, enter the iTunes Store. From there, select “Music,” then “iMix.” From the iMix page, if you do a search for Fallout, you should find an iMix one user submitted called Fallout 3.. From there, you can purchase any or all of the following songs:
Butcher Pete — Roy Brown
I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire — The Ink Spots
Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall — The Ink Spots & Ella Fitzgerald
Way Back Home — Bob Crosby and the Bobcats
Anything Goes — Cole Porter with Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks
Maybe — The Ink Spots
Dear Hearts and Gentle People — Bob Crosby and the Bobcats
No, we’re not making a game based on the Cable Guy, but that scene above was the first thing that came to mind when I learned about Medieval Games, a new title coming to the Nintendo Wii from our sister studio, Vir2L Studios. Here’s a bit from the game’s press release:
From battling dragons and storming the castle, to catapulting and archery contests, Medieval Games offers hours of fun for the entire family. Choose from a variety of colorful characters, such as the knight, princess, bard, or wizard as you compete in a variety of game modes. Tournaments and jousting await in this rich fantasy world!
The game is early on in it’s development, but I wanted to make sure it’s on your radar. Additionally, Vir2L is working on ZeniMax’s first iPhone (and iPod touch) game — Scram Sam.
For over a year, Thorlak Island Team have been working on a pretty expansive Oblivion project, entitled Thorlak Island: Blood in the Snow. This mod offers a new (snow covered) island to explore, all new NPCs and towns, nine new quests, and more.
The 1.1 title update for PC that was just released today also includes an extra feature — it deploys the Games for Windows LIVE Marketplace app that Fallout 3 will use to release downloadable content for the PC. It will appear as a separate application in your Start Menu under Microsoft Games for Windows LIVE. You can also download the app separately from Microsoft’s Games for Windows site.
Today we’re releasing the Fallout 3 version 1.10 update to PC and Xbox 360 in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish territories. Additionally, if you’ve got a PS3 and are living in one of the aforementioned European territories, the update is coming your way as well.
To download and read the update’s release notes, head over to the Fallout 3 Official Site. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users with online connectivity will receive a notification of the update upon starting the game.
As noted last week on the blog, Games for Windows has a Connect & Win contest — where if you’re logged into Games for Windows LIVE and playing Fallout 3, you have a chance to win one of their daily prizes.
Today kicks off the last week of the contest with a chance to a Fallout 3 Survival Edition. So boot up the game, log into your Games for Windows LIVE account and cross your fingers.
No, that doesn’t stand for Only Xylophone Managers Guard Operating Train Yards. We received the latest issue of OXM and discovered that Fallout 3 was named their 2008 Game of the Year!
In addition to their year end awards, they also look ahead to the games they’re excited for in 2009 (with Fallout 3 DLC coming in at #17). So what game are you looking forward to most in 2009? I listed a few candidates on the current blog poll.
