In news that will certainly fit in the "Water is Wet" category, Some site called Glixel (apparently they're related to Rolling Stone Magazine) is reporting that Bethesda are indeed still in the video game industry, which will certainly be of interest for those whom had worried that they'd instead moved into the Agriculture industry. These projects are apparently in addition to Skyrim for Switch, and Fallout 4 VR.
"We've got a good number of projects on the go. We're bigger now and we do want to be putting out more stuff. We have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger. We overlap the projects so we're working on them at the same time, but they're staggered. I can't talk a lot about them, but I can say that they're bigger than anything we've ever done. They're a bit different, but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used to from us."”— Todd Howard
New Releases News
Shelter 1.8 Update
(6 October) Today Bethesda Game Studios released Update 1.8 for the award-winning mobile and PC game, Fallout Shelter, allowing Overseers to craft themes for their Vault rooms based on their favorite Fallout 4 factions, introducing Holiday celebrations, and bringing even more new Quests to the free-to-play game.
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.

Nukapedian of the Year award
As Christmas and New Year are at our doorsteps, we will have our annual contest to show appreciation for those users who have had a great influence on our Wikia this year. As many of you may remember from previous years, the Nukapedian of the Year is to be the user who has had the greatest positive influence on the Wikia in the year 2016. The very idea of "positive influence" is open to interpretation, so its definition may vary between each user. In the past years, this blog series had been organized by one of our former admins, Skire, who sadly resigned this year. I'm honored though to continue this tradition this year and would like to thank him for giving us the great tradition.
Here we have the first stage of the contest: nominations.
