    He is not orchestral enough for the new Fallouts >_>


    Anyway Fallout 3 was a hit and miss for me. Some of the music was really good. Other tracks just bored me to tears. Or even felt unapropiate. I just never saw Fallout as this epic game with epic music and epic orchestras. I might be biased and tainted by nostalgia. But Mark really hit the spot with every location, I guess the reason is because the Music doesn't get in your way. Each location creates its own tone. It is the same feeling I have with Diablo 1/2 for example. The Music is there to support the game, not the game to support the Music if you get what I mean. Tristram, Mephs dungeon, Diablos Lair etc. Or in Fallout for me Redding, the Cathedral, Vault City and so on. It was simply ambient music, not epic orchesral music.

    Don't get me wrong I love orchestra... just Mark Morgan's work fitted better.

    A lot of Mark Morgan's work on the Fallout soundtrack is very derivative of Aphex Twin tracks.

    Apologies then. It's still great music that really works for Fallout.

  6. How do you guys feel about this song? I like that they brought it back in New Vegas, fit really well when I was doing Boone's quest in Novac.

    I find it...ehh...it just slogs on without any tension or development. I realize it's supposed to be ambient, but it's so...dull.

    I recall hearing he had very little direction from Bethesda on the game and had a few weeks to make the soundtrack. I think he's a decent enough composer, but anyone who doesn't get involved in the game's development is probably going to make something generic and not-super-well-fitting no matter what.

    No. It's third party concept art made by the STATIS team. STATIS is a isometric point and click adventure game and as part of the games promotion they made concept art of various games in an isometric perspective.
