I’m quite a big fan of listening to video game soundtracks, and while reading through my news feeds the other night I saw something that perked my interest. The composer for the original Fallout titles, Mark Morgan, has remastered all the songs he composed for Fallout 1 and 2, in a project of his called the “Vault Archives”.
And the best thing about it, and I would expect no less, is that it’s a free download. You can get all 24 tracks, which are remixed and remastered. You can download them over on Aural Network. There are four streaming sample tracks that you can play to listen to as well. There’s also a mirror on NMA, in case it doesn’t work on the former site.
I don’t know if I’ll download them all. I have heard the originals, most recently when someone made a mod which incorporated the songs from the original two games into Fallout 3. You can bet that I’ll be adding it to the queue for the NAG DVD though.
There were some jabs over on NMA, with some posters saying that you better hurry up and get it before Bethesda issues a Cease& Desist order.
