Obsidian misses New Vegas bonus by slim Metacritic margin

Fallout: New Vegas was pretty well liked by critics and gamers, despite some of its signature open world jank. But it was just barely not well-liked enough to earn the team at Obsidian bonuses, according to creative director Chris Avellone.

Fallout: New Vegas dev blames PS3 lag on restrictive RAM

Fallout: New Vegas dev blames PS3 lag on restrictive RAM

Bethesda games have, simply put, not performed well on PS3. From Fallout 3 to Skyrim, PlayStation gamers have commonly experienced sluggish performance, especially as file sizes balloon up.

Fallout: New Vegas project coordinator Joshua E. Sawyer recently talked about the memory limitations on PS3, which may provide some insight to Skyrim's performance issues. The PS3 suffers when dealing with large file saves, an "engine-level issue" caused by PS3's restrictive memory.

Team Fortress 2 items celebrate QuakeCon 2011

Valve wants the share the QuakeCon love with Team Fortress 2 players. As part of the QuakeCon sale on Steam, each of the classes--soldier, engineer, heavy, and sniper--gets a new toy inspired by Bethesda-related titles.

These items are all bonuses, awarded for either owning or pre-ordering the specific they're drawn from. If any of them sound like things you'd like to add to your Team Fortress 2 player, act quick. QuakeCon ends this Sunday, and the promotion cuts off Monday morning, August 8 at 10am PDT. Sorry, no hats; however, there is an "Anger hood" from Brink and an "Iron helmet" from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I guess that sort of counts.

Fallout: New Vegas gets major patch in advance of 'Old World Blues' DLC

Glitches plagued Fallout: New Vegas when it came out all the way back in October of last year, making patches all but a certainty for the game. Even so, it's still surprising to see such a massive patch as the one detailed in this post on the Bethesda Blog, nine months after the game's initial release.

Fallout: New Vegas 'Honest Hearts' DLC won't work with some saves

[Update] Bethesda has sent Shacknews the following response to the original story below: "The ED-E bug was in Fallout: New Vegas (not the Honest Hearts DLC) and affected a very small group of users. It was largely eliminated in the previous patch. While a few may still be encountering issues, we will be providing a way for them to manually force their companions to leave their party in the upcoming patch, thus eliminating the issue entirely."

The video game release list of 5/16-5/22

The video game release list of 5/16-5/22

AAA games flee before The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and L.A. Noire, fearful to release in the same week as these two much-anticipated games. Smaller, cheaper, downloadable titles and downloadable content are unphased by this, though. On that front, we're getting Sega Rally Online Arcade, the Honest Hearts DLC for Fallout: New Vegas, and Terraria, which I shall lazily describe as "kind of a bit like an action-oriented 2D Minecraft."

If you're somehow not interested in any of those, there's a a colouring-in game on DSiWare and some Wii titles that'll teach you how to read. Read more »
