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 isn't looking very evil so far

A behind-closed-doors play session for upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within wasn't as evil as I hoped it would be. I still have high hopes for the next game from Resident Evil vet Shinji Mikami and his new ...more

Yep, The Evil Within is going to be one super creepy game alright

Oh The Evil Within, how I can't wait for you to scare the every living daylights out of me. Shinji Mikami's past games were my first tastes of the survival horror genre, and I'm quite looking forward to see what he does with...more

'Nowhere to Run' in new Wolfenstein gameplay trailer

I've got kind of a thing for Wolfenstein 3D, since it was one of the first PC games I ever played, but also World War II and alternate histories in general. So excuse me while I indulge in some inappropriate levels of excite...more
