Howdy folks. The most recent discussions moderator (DM) request has raised a couple of questions in my mind I'd like to discuss before we have any more. Now, right from the get-go, I understand that just bringing these topics up may cause some consternation, especially with discussions users, so I'm gonna take a few minutes to set the stage properly.

New Releases News
New Season of Nuka Break coming soon!
Recently, Wayside Digital (formerly known as Wayside Creations) released their final trailer Fallout: The Wanderer, for their latest fan series in the Fallout universe. For those new to Wayside Digital: Wayside Digital is the non-profit that brought us the excellent Fallout: Nuka Break series, a very well known Fallout fan series that's popular enough to get an own Wikipedia page and even an in-game reference in Fallout: New Vegas.
Layoffs at Obsidian
Sad news coming out of Obsidian HQ today. The New Vegas developer is laying off some staff from its Armored Warfare team as the publisher for this title has decided to bring some of the work in house.
This highlights some of the dangers for those of you looking for careers in the Video Games industry. Studios expand, contract, and fall as their games do. Companies who solely develop games, like Obsidian are at the whim and mercy of their publisher "partners". Others doing less glamorous work for sub contractors who work only when there is work - between projects they're left on their own.
Obsidian will continue to work on the project, but our best wishes go out to those who are getting the "enforced vacation", and hope you'll all be gainfully employed again real soon.
