Imagine if you will, a game built with the skyrim engine, based in its own, new Sci Fi universe where time travel is possible. Now have the Obsidian guys build it. It still may happen - we'll cover the story of "Backspace", an idea the obsidian guys are keeping on the shelf, for now.
- I've just finished talking with star of screen and video game Erik Dellums, probably best known for his role as "Three Dog". We talk about "That dog gone tweet", Fallout 3, Avatar- The Last Airbender, Golden Boy, and more. You can join us for the conversation via YouTube.
In light of the recent passing of Adam Adamowicz, Bethesda decided to release over 1500 pieces of Concept Art from Skyrim, Fallout 3 and Oblivion DLC. This includes over 800 pieces of Fallout 3 CA, ranging from characters to environments, weapons to creatures, and much more. Some of it made it into the game, a lot of it didn't. If you want to check it all out, you can head on over to their flickr stream, and look through them. The sets for Skyrim and Oblivion can also be found right here.
Thanks to No Mutants Allowed
Bethesda Game Studios has announced that they will be releasing Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in one pack. This new pack will be released in North America on April 3rd and it will cost $29.99USD for the Xbox 360 and $19.99USD for the PC. This double pack is not available for the Playstation 3 due to restrictions that are blocking Bethesda from releasing it for Playstation 3 users. Bethesda will release an update if any information for a Playstation 3 release comes along.

Here's another batch of various small Fallout-related news bits. What does Fallout have to do with Polish politics? And who is likely to get sued by Bethesda Softworks next?
A clip from the original Fallout intro has been modified and used in an ad for Poland Comes First party in relation to the upcoming parliamentary election in Poland. I'm pretty sure Bethesda will request it to be taken down soon, so watch it while you still can. The clip was not made by the party itself but by its sympathizer, but it has been posted on the party's official community website. Will we see a lawsuit between a game developer and a Polish political party?
Update: Looks like the video has been taken down. Meanwhile, Eurogamer covered the story after I sent it their way, but they somehow forgot to credit us, they thought that it was "inspired by Fallout 3" and not simply a modification of the Fallout 1 intro (they already corrected this part, but not in the URL), and they wrote that it was produced by the party …
Leonard Boyarsky, one of the original creators of Fallout has been interviewed by Gamasutra, mostly about his current role as the lead world designer on Diablo III at Blizzard, but Fallout is also mentioned here and there.
The mention of Van Buren here is a bit confusing, given that Boyarsky left Interplay during the development of Fallout 2 and while Van Buren was being made, he was busy at Troika Games. I'm guessing this is a mistake and he actually meant Fallout or Fallout 2.
Also, don't forget to check the Diablo Wiki for latest updates on Diablo III.
