It should come as no shock that the Fallout series is on a lot of people’s minds lately. After all, Fallout 4 did just release, and it’s a pretty damn good game (or so I’m told!).
This time on the podcast, Jeremy Stratton joins me to tell me a bit about the series because, as it turns out, though I’ve read a lot about it and watched videos over the years, I’ve never directly played any of them. Jeremy approaches the topic quite well and is very informative and fun with it, he mentions some of the lore and also his experiences with the older games, talks briefly about the new game, and then tells me about his current Fallout 4: New Vegas project.
What is Fallout 4: New Vegas? Well, no, it’s not a “new” game or any sort of expansion or DLC. Rather, it’s his own pet project where he has been working carefully to install a large volume of mods into 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas in an attempt to give it better graphics, more content, and lots of gameplay features that were never dreamed of for the original game (but oddly enough some of which are part of Fallout 4).
Music for this episode comes from the official Fallout universe’s musical score and no infringement is intended!

GG 08-13: “Falling for Fallout” (MP3)
It’s been a little bit since my last regular, non-scheduled post here on the blog, but that’s because I was enjoying some time with my family out of town. It was nice to be able to get away for a while, relax, and not have too much to really worry about. Christmas was indeed very nice and was spent visiting with my parents, grandparents, and aunt and uncle and we all had a great time. Also, despite people saying that they hope that Christmas gets smaller and that people stop feeling obligated to buy huge gifts, I think this year was the biggest Christmas yet!
Ah well, that’s just how things go sometimes!
Regardless, I am rather tired now and will be relaxing and taking it easy over the next few days. I do suspect, though, that posting will pick up again here on Allahweh’s Domain after the first of the year and sometime in the near future I will pick up with Season 3 of “The Gaming Goddess” podcast. The podcast is a lot of work, though, and I am still considering what the format will be like for the Spring 2013 season. I may consider doing it every-other week or possibly finding someone to regularly help with the show. If the latter is something that interests you, do let me know in coming weeks.
For now, though, I wish all of you a wonderful New Year and I hope that 2013 is a great year for us all! ^.^
With the Holidays here already, I felt it to be a good idea to tell you that Allahweh’s Domain will not receive any further posts until after December 27, mainly due to the fact that I will be out of town visiting family for Christmas. While I could try and update this blog now and then while away, I would rather not have to feel obligated to do so and instead simply be able to relax and enjoy myself while away!
Still, this isn’t to say that this site will have been forgotten while I’m gone or, more importantly, that you will have been forgotten. Rather, I did have a little something for you guys that I will schedule to go live on Christmas Day – it’s a neat, very rare PC game that was produced in such limited quantities that it is almost impossible to find these days. The image associated with this post may give you a clue as to what this game is, but mum’s the word for now. Just be sure to check back here on December 25 to secure your copy while you can!
Meanwhile, don’t forget that the digital album for Season 2 of the show is available for you to purchase, so if you missed my post about that, do check it out now and secure your copy. Keep in mind, though, that if you pay for it now, you won’t receive it most likely until December 28, but I will see what I can do.
Merry Christmas, and do enjoy your time off! ^.^
When I wrapped up Season 1 of the podcast back in June, I had planned on recording a bonus track later on in the summer (between seasons, basically) and eventually including that, and the other twenty episodes, into an “album” of sorts. The bonus track was meant to provide an incentive to pick up the album since while all the other episodes were free to download or stream, that one track would not be. Having now recorded that bonus track (a Q&A session with questions submitted by fans), I now must figure out where to host a digital album. I already have a private web-storage that I could use, but I want a way that people can go, purchase the thing (via PayPal or whatever) and then download it. Perhaps something kind of like Amazon or iTunes.
Yet, again, I know nothing about this sort of thing, so I wanted to reach out to you all to see if you had any suggestions.
If I have to, I can simply let people send me money via PayPal and then, in turn, give them a link to the album to download, but that should simply be a back-up plan for now.
As I have never done a Let’s Play video in the past, this is a totally new experience for me. The Iron Man Mode project was just what it took to get me in the right mindset to do this. Perhaps it’s because this is all done with charity in mind, but maybe it was just the right catalyst and a good audience that got me going on it. In any rate, it’s recorded and now live on the Internet!
I recorded this video with FRAPS (thanks to Zeke of IMM for the license!) and then converted it to WMV format and up-converted the resolution to 1920×1080. This video contains the first two dungeons of the game as well as a little bit of time spent exploring the overworld.
The video can of course be watched here or on YouTube, and you can also download a copy of the actual video file in the archives on this site.
Zeke was kind enough to write this little write-up about the video here on IMM. Also, he was kind enough to write this totally awesome introduction for me on the site!
As always, if you like what you see, please consider making a donation to the Child’s Play charity here from IMM.
As a somewhat-unrelated side-note here, I am in the process of taking all my old podcasts and converting them to video files and putting them on my YouTube account. I will also go back and imbed videos into the old posts and will do that from now on.
