Holy wow, there's actually some news about Obsidian / Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas
. We hadn't seen hide nor hair of the game since its announcement
in April of last year and ... well, we still haven't. No, dear Readers, today's news
is merely that the game will be distributed in many locales outside of the US by Namco Bandai.
Specifically, the Japan-headquartered giant will be putting New Vegas
into the hands of gamers in Australia, Austria, Benelux, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Rivet City. (We made that last one up.) For its part, Bethesda mostly talked up the partnership, but added that, "Fallout: New Vegas
builds upon the immersive gaming experience that made Fallout 3
the 2008 Game of the Year." Yes, please!
