Fallout: New Vegas Bonus Missed by 1 Point; Obsidian Layoffs

Obsidian's Chris Avellone indicated that Obsidian just missed a bonus for Fallout: New Vegas, reports Joystiq, saying this came in a tweet from a no longer existent account, allegedly saying: "[Fallout: New Vegas] was a straight payment, no royalties, only a bonus if we got an 85+ on Metacritic, which we didn't." Sure enough, the game currently sits at 84 on Metacritic. They also note their report of layoffs at Obsidian, though these are still unconfirmed. Thanks nin.

Aside from the fact that "THIS CAME FROM A TWEET FROM A NO LONGER EXISTENT ACCOUNT" I have to go on record to say that Fallout:NV was a brilliant game.

Much, much better than F3, and definitely the true spiritual successor to the first two games.

With that said, Chris Avellone and all these twitter itchy developers need to cool it, because they arent really helping anyone with these stupid statements. First of all they end up looking retarded, because who in their fucking right minds would sign a bonus deal based on aggregate reveiw scores, and second of all do you really think Bethesda will go to these guys again after they try to a smear campaign against them???

Damnit all to hell. Obsidian makes the best story driven RPGs ever. Are we going to get an Obsidian developed standalone expansion to Skyrim after this shit now??
