The new issue of PC Gamer US, which will hit the newsstands in a week, has a preview of Fallout: New Vegas. Meanwhile, an article from the previous issue, listing PC Gamer's top 10 anticipated games, can now be found online. Here's what Dan Stapleton says about New Vegas:
Why were we so excited to hear that the next game in the Fallout series would be developed by Obsidian rather than the franchise's current home, Bethesda? Game trivia: the original creators of Fallout: A Post-Nuclear Role-Playing Game and Fallout 2 worked at the Interplay-owned Black Isle Studios. When Interplay effectively shut down, many Black Isle employees, including studio head Feargus Urquhart, bailed and founded Obsidian in 2003. Obsidian's resume includes strong RPG games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights 2 and the upcoming Alpha Protocol. While not all of the brains behind Fallout reside at Obsidian, an injection of original Black Isle mojo is outstanding news. If we had to bet on anybody to surpass 2008's incredibly Fallout 3, it'd be these guys.”
