It's been a very slow weekend for news, so I'll just post some random things and draw wild and unsubstantiated conclusions from them. There may or may not be crazy Fallout: New Vegas things happening right now at Obsidian. Why, you might ask? Well, first off - Pete Hines is out in California right now. Is he out there to do things at Obsidian? No idea. Second, Chris Avellone is giving a speech! Does it have to do with New Vegas? Your guess is as good as mine. But here are the quotes from everyone's twitter:
Pete Hines: Having a last bit of fun before getting back to work. Fried shrimp picnic by the side of PCH/beach in Malibu.
Chris Avellone: Rehearsing intro speeches in your car without a bluetooth = earns suspicious glances normally reserved for the schizophrenic. about 4 hours ago from web
Chris Avellone:@loonyboi I have piled a stack of tiny folding chairs in the conference room. And a video camera. I'll post the results at 4PM. about 3 hours ago from web in reply to loonyboi
Draw whatever conclusions you want from this. I'm assuming that things are happening regarding Fallout: New Vegas, but I may be completely wrong. Again, this is wild and crazy conjecture.
Update: Looks like there was a press dinner at Mastro's Ocean Club. How do I know? Well I can't be 100%, but my detective skills tell me I'm right. First, Pete Hines posted this:
Pete Hines: Is gonna have vanilla battered shrimp because I want room for lobster mashed potatoes and crab gnocchi. And mac n cheese. And butter cake.
Yum. Then just a few minutes ago, Josh Sawyer posted this:
Joshua Eric Sawyer: just got done with a press dinner at mastro's ocean club. i am dying. please send a rescue. death is in my stomach. helpsdasldffg.......
I did a little search for Mastro's Ocean Club, and they do have Vanilla Battered Shrimp on the menu so that maybe means that I'm correct in my wild speculation! This may or may not have anything to do with Fallout: New Vegas. It might have been just a big press dinner with gaming industry people or something. I don't know. I'm just bored with the lack of real Fallout: New Vegas news so I'm going to keep posting inane things like this until someone stops me.
