Fallout 3…Feeding the Video Game Addiction

The goodies.

Yesterday I went to GameStop yesterday to pick up Fallout 3 and as I updated on my Twitter page added to the list of games that I won’t play for a very long time, I am still excited about the purchase. I’m playing a lot of Fable 2 and really don’t have a ton of time to spread between three expansive rpgs, so I passed Fallout 3 to Aaron until I’m ready to play. Splurging on the collector’s edition was a great boon, however. Just look at what it contained.

I bought it mainly for the bobblehead and it, of course, is awesome. But, I also bought it for the awesome tin lunchbox that came along with it (guess I got a new lunch pail for work!). Also came along with it was a stunning art book. It details all of the landscape, creatures and characters in the game. Although I’d have say that this game is wee bit more gruesome for my tastes once I complete a few more games I’m really excited to jump in and play. See all the goodies below.

Zombie Attack!

Here it is. Finally. Our zombie podcast episode is done. We issued a press release and all. Enjoy!

Cake Eating Zombies

So as many of you know, I’m pretty into video games (understatement I KNOW), and last week was E3, arguably one of the biggest media summits for the industry. Well, I noticed there were about 6 games having to do with zombies. What did I do with that little nugget of information? Well I proposed to my best friends and co-hosts of Gamespeek that we do a zombie themed episode. I thought maybe a little zombie annoyance from my co-hosts, but we ended up running around, falling around in fields and getting choked and bitten by them. Hell after a while we even had a plot.  Just poor me trying deliver fun zombie video game news while my co-hosts try to stop me (and of course made me apart of the undead). I ended up getting quite an exercise that day, but for having no more than a few scene ideas when we got together we churned the filming out in just about three hours.

As you can see above we awarded ourselves with some delicious tort afterwards.

If you wanna know about the games we’re talking or mumbling about, you’ll have to check out the video when it comes out. I’ll post the video once it’s up and running.

Putting on the make-up was a lot of fun. I might get a little more creative come Halloween, last year I was a member of Geek Squad. That poor excuses of a costume consisted of me printing out their logo and taping it on my laptop case which had ethernet cords and computer magazines inside. I know. Lame.

At the end of the day, I think the toughest part was taking off the make-up. Well not that difficult, but kind of cringe inducing.

All in all it was a fun Sunday. I was beat-up, cut-up and bruised, but as my friend Aaron says, “You can’t have a podcast without some bruising.”

Well I doubt the next podcast will be zombie themed, so I’m a little concerned…
