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 Cakesfame).
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.]
