Our favorite TV/movie/video game shred master Eric Calderone is at it again, this time posting a "Fallout Meets Metal" video, which can be seen below. Eric comments:
"So one of the shining moments of E3 for a lot of us was Fallout 4. The first one I played was Fallout 2 back in '98 I think it was and have been loving not just the game but the idea of it ever since.
"I went to FB to get some suggestions from you all and decided to give the Fallout 3 theme a shot along with some oldie tunes, 'Blue Moon' - I didnt base it off of the Sinatra version in the game, and 'Ain't That A Kick In The Head.' I wish I could have included all the oldies but I need Tony Bennett with me :)
"I also did my best to accent the game as much as I could. Thank you guys so much for everything! It means the world. BIG BIG ups for always rocking my casbah!"
