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.

How do you figure Fo2 didn't have a 50's or 60's vibe with New Reno? It obviously wasn't as pronounced but the vibe was sure as shit classic gambling town schtick. It was rougher, but FO3 and FO3:NV also take place after the fact where the major centers are coming more up to speed as well.

My big problem wiht FO3 and NV is how they deal with the BOS. Which IMO would have grown susbstantially in those sorts of circumstances and not diminish. Hell, I'd still like to see a BOS focused game in the FO universe.
