This week the Moving Pixels podcast crew and I talk about the world of Fallout 3. It's a game that I have started twice, but I haven't actually finished (twice). I'm not quite sure why, as I really admire a lot of things that it does. I really like the opening birth sequence, for example, as an alternate to the typical amnesiac manner of getting a game plot going. I also am a sucker for '40s and '50s music and aesthetics and like the contrast with the corrupted landscape of Washington D.C.
My fellow podcasters have actually finished the game and may have much more relevant things to say. You can listen at us here:
