Through the Aftermath Episode 10
Fri, 8 May 2009 18:55:00 GMT [download/play]



In this 10th episode of Through the Aftermath, we're joined by Bethesda's Vice President of PR, Pete Hines, for a great discussion on Fallout 3 and Broken Steel. Swaying from the usual boring journalist questions, we try to mix it up a bit by asking some behind-the-scenes goodies. Plus, we discuss a bit of news from the last 2 weeks:

- The Road film gets a release date
- JJ Abrams to direct the Dark Tower movie
- Behind the Scenes with NBC's Day One series

Episode 10 Discussion Thread

'Abrams' by Token

Why are people still obsessing over Abrams. He is great for getting people excited about projects, but he's a hack.. Lost's incredible story had little to do with Abrams, he threw out an expensive pilot with a mish mash of unexplainable ideas and left it upto a couple of talented producers to actually create a show around it. Alias was horrible, Fringe was horrible, Cloverfield was horrible. It's time to stop kneeling before Abrams.

p.s I'm still going to see Star Trek tomorrow and hoping it's good, (my g/f wants to see it)

Much like George Lucas Abrams is a very good ideas man unfortonatly he kinda fucks his own stuff up much like Lucas. But saying that Star Trek was awesome the only thing I didnt like was Simon Peg as Scotty.

I agree with you Token, about JJ being overhyped. I really don't like him as a director, but with that being said...... The new Star Trek movie was great and this is coming from someone that is not really a big Trek fan or JJ fanboi.

I have to say that I would like to see more of what he did in future Star Trek movies.

Oh and BadPanda, get outta here. Simon Pegg as Montgomery Scott was great.

I think that my fav character in the movie has to be Bones. Karl Urban really nailed that role. I felt like I was watching a younger DeForest Kelley.

The casting as a whole was fantastic along with a tight and action packed story.

Yep Star Trek was a seriously good film, very surprising.

Not saying Simon Peg was bad it was just he wasnt what I expected. But Bones was spot on that actor was amazing.

On A side note you should of asked what is up with no DLC for the PS3. I mean why bother releasing the game for the PS3 if they where not going to make the DLC aviable for it. Its like a massive fuck you to every one that enojoyed the game but played it on a PS3.



'Fallout Trilogy' by BurntSushi

I don't know if you have mentioned this before, but there is a new Fallout Trilogy that you can pick up in retail or at the Interplay website: http://fallout.gamesplanet.com/game-fallout-trilogy2-interplay.html

It includes Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

The price tag is $19.99 in retail stores and on the site.

I just got into a little beta that you guys would like. :)

Goodness! That segment about JJ Abrams got more of a reaction than I initially thought! Now I don't consider myself a JJ Abrams fan by any means. Most of my opinion of Abrams has been my own from what I've seen. I've never watched Alias, I'm only in season 2 of LOST (I love it so far!)... but I enjoyed Cloverfield, and I absoutely LOVED StarTrek! My opinion overall is that Abrams seems to have some very cool ideas. I REALLY want this to work with The Gunslinger. Alot of his success may be, as you said, because he surrounds himself by very smart people. If that is the case, I hope he has them all with him on this one. He also seems to be able to get the financial backing. For me this is a huge piece. I really want to believe this movie can be amazing. He has a great opportunity here. That said... if he screws this up... I will be first in line to feed him to the feral ghouls.

@BadPanda: I'm also very curious about when and if the PS3 will ever see any DLC. We toyed with the idea of asking questions like this, but decided to stay away from the questions we've seen asked in recent interviews already. Any question involving "PS3 DLC", "a possible Fallout4", or "rumors of a 4th unannounced upcoming DLC" have always been met with the inevitable "we have no plans at this time/we can't talk about it" answer. We also wanted to try to stay a way a bit from the obvious questions that everyone seems to ask like clockwork. Seriously, I don't know how many times I've heard the question "what made you decide to raise the level cap from 20 to 30?". Instead, Shawn and I decided to go for a bit of the behind-the-scenes approach, sprinkled with just a tad of the obvious questions. Hopefully, you found it to be a nice change from the typical questions game journalists ask. I've always loved the behind-the-scenes stuff, because it's a great look at the people making the game. And there were some great dev stories in this interview. The one about Emil Pagliarulo's voice placeholder for the mother still cracks me up. And who WOULDN'T want a Fatman-machine gun!?
It was also a very cool bonus to hear mention of a previously-unannounced project being revealed at E3. I think we all have a few ideas of what that just might be, and every one of them is a win. ;)

And, like BurntSushi mentioned above, DO pick up the Fallout trilogy. If you've played Fallout3, you'll love the background and story that the original Fallout games have. You're going to see the origins of the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave. Also, Fallout3 is riddled with tributes and jokes that pay homage to the originals. And with Feargus Urquhart's team working on Fallout:Vegas, you KNOW he's totally going to revisit some of the original areas or touch on some of the stories. Oh man... I can't wait to SEE THAT!!
