    Elon Musk liking New Vegas makes me like the game less

    And of course Musk would never do it - obvious silliness aside, he's buddy-buddy with Todd Howard.

    Don't worry, billionares liking media that directly criticizes them is normal, Bezos and Musk like Parasite, Bezos is a massive fanboy of The Expanse and so forth. Just assume they are the "wow cool wasteland" meme.

    If this leads to Chris spilling everything about the engine And what it's like Working with Bethesda, i'll be okay with that.

    Saying this however, it seems he is aware that the allegations have hurt his career, so it seems he'll rather just burn every bridge he had

    Part of me finds that entertaining, but another part of me is disapointed, especially given his track record of some things

    I dunno, ome problem I've always had is that outside of gaming, he comes across as an edgy 15 year old redditor. And While that's fun And entertaining, i'm not sure where it's going to lead

    I doubt he wants to work with Bethesda ever again, so i'm not surprised he's taking jabs at them.

    Even if it is a bonus Bethesda did screw Obsidian over when it comes to that, the game wasn't in a launching state and should have been delayed so that they could work on the bugs but forced it out anyway, leading to reviews rating it poorly due to the massive amount of bugs which in turn lead to not meeting the criteria for the bonus.

    To make things worse, Bethesda was the one responsible for QA of New Vegas.
    But let's be honest, the biggest problem was that Obsidian's leadership signed the contract that explicitly said they only had 18 months to make the game. You can always count on Feargus to do the wrong business decisions. :roll:

    QA doesn't fix bugs, they just point them out and provide steps to recreate them. It was up to Obsidian to fix them in time.

    That said, with enough critical bug reports, Bethsoft should have delayed a release.

    That's not the problem, the problem was that Bethesda pulled out the QA team (or at least shrunk it or something like that, it's not entirely known what really happened) after a while and the game stopped having proper QA being done to it.

    This was the only bad thing Feargus ever let out about Bethesda in an interview. And he didn't even named Bethesda, he made it quite generalized, but the question was about why Obsidian got known for releasing buggy games, including FNV.
    Since FNV was the last really buggy game they had released before that interview and how Feargus mentions that they now have to specify in their contracts with publishers just how many people and for how long they have to provide QA, it's pretty obvious that's because of Bethesda pulling something fishy on them.
