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.

Obsidian seems to sign the shittiest contracts with publishers. Kotor2 rushed out the door unfinished, AP gets a year delay with zero visible polish added during that delay. And basing bonuses off of metacritic of all things? Do Fergus and Avellone have half a brain between the two of em?
