Bethesda Softwork's bloody mess: Fallout 3 ... the cake


3:59 PM on 07.01.2007




The highlight of Bethesda Softwork's post-Fallout 3 press event party (which took place in the hip, downtown Washington D.C. lounge, Chloe) was not the free booze. I wouldn't even say it was the crowd of highly intoxicated videogame journalists as a result of said free booze. Even the 80s hair metal cover band that rocked the house, while awesome, didn't quite do it.

Without a doubt, it was the magnificent "bloody mess" cake, inspired by Fallout 3's iconic Vault-Tec mascot, Vault Boy. From the twisted brain of Pete Hines, Bethesda Softwork's V.P. of Public Relations and Marketing, this cake was brought to life by the talented folks at Charm City Cakes (of Ace of Cakes fame).

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to eat any of the cake -- my old and brittle bones required me to leave the party before I crumbled. But word on the street is that it tasted like Oblivion with frosting.

[Note: In case you guys missed it in the other thread, I'm planning a follow-up post to my Fallout 3 preview , where I'll touch on some things that didn't quite make it into my original article. There was a lot and it hurts my puny human brain, so if you have any specific questions, feel free to leave them in the comments of this post.]

The Evil Within PC updated with settings for 60 FPS and letterbox removal

Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin...more

You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch

"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its finest. That thing was just weighing him down, anyway.more

Review: The Evil Within

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game...more
