    Fallout 3: A Post-Nuclear Blog reports that terrorists are using Fallout 3 art in their plans to launch WMD.

    According to the Australian news.com, a computer-generated picture of a destroyed Washington DC accompanied a video instructing terrorists to use WMD:
    <blockquote>The FBI warning came as the US-based monitoring group SITE said the video encouraging terrorists to develop and detonate weapons of mass destruction in the US and Europe was posted on an Islamist militant forum.

    SITE also released a computer-generated image, showing Washington DC in the aftermath of a nuclear attack, which reportedly appeared on an Islamist forum.</blockquote>
    As it turns out, the image posted to the Islamist site is the well-known Fallout 3 concept art released over a year ago by Bethesda:

    Thanks Ausir

    I still how remember Super Mario Brothers emboldened hundreds of aging Italian plumbers to resort to some serious pipe-swinging violence. The horror, the horror...

    EDIT: The only instructive thing Bethesda has to teach, terrorists or anybody else, is its successful use of Machiavellian PR strategies for generating abnormal amount of consumer excitement over completely mediocre and undistinguished produce. But I guess the terrorists already know that one, don't they...

    That's it! The ultimate controversy publicity/advertisement is to be connected to terrorism. Take that Rockstar!

    Pardon me, but...



    For some reason, Fallout is a game I could imagine to see Osama Bin Laden playing... Destroyed USA? Check!

    no no he means rockstar, as in take that rockstar fallout 3 is now anti america and will blow up all schools and kill thousands of innocent happy smiley blond white children. Where as GTA IV was just accused of being a bit bad for kids by some old dude. Or at least thats the way the papers will spin it :lol:

    Still though osama must be getting a bit ashamed, i mean he raised the bar for terrorsim now all the dumb ones are coming out of the woodwork.

    Take care, SB

    Also, http://www.goodbrush.com/ appears to be down. And that's the website of Craig Mullins, the guy who made that concept art.

    Did they take him to Gitmo already?

    The horror, the horror! Maybe next on the list it's Bethesda? Nah! More likely NMA, as they are sooo irritating with their Fallout worship....

    Now, seriously, media is misinforming in its quest for sensational, while the state agencies are showing their lack of professionalism and basic education. It must be very difficult to always check the facts, to make sure that things are not some empty threats or some idiotical pranks. Nooo, it's better to jump directly to the conclusion. It's more dramatic that way....

    If you buy Fallout 3, you're supporting Osama and the cause of terry-ism everywhere.

    I've always felt somewhat patriotic dissing Fallout 3. Now I know why. I say let's get Todd Howard and lock him up you know where. Just to be on the safe side...
