Jason Lewis, a senior environment artist for Obsidian Entertainment, started a personal project earlier this year that was meant to teach him the ins-and-outs of Unreal 4. That project soon ballooned, and other developers at Obsidian got involved in making what they’re calling an “interactive fan art piece.”
Most of us probably spent hours in the first town of Fallout: New Vegas. Here, you can watch someone beat the entire thing in a ridiculous 20:47.
A massive vampire battle, ginger doll thieves and an entire town dedicated to Christmas—these are just some of scenes cut from South Park: The Stick Of Truth, the role-playing game that begin with a suspected prank phone call.
Bullying takes many different forms. It was the worst for me when it came under the guise of friendship.
In the “objective video game review” sense, Alpha Protocol is pretty much the worst. It’s super irritating to play, and every time I speak with somebody from Obsidian, the studio that made it, they just shake their head. But on the Phil Owen “Was This A Big Waste Of Time?” Scale, however, Alpha Protocol comes out on…
Most games force tutorials on the player near the start of a new adventure. But Fallout is a game all about freedom...and that lets hilarious situations like this one happen.

Pillars of Eternity is a lovely CRPG, but it's a lovely CRPG from Obsidian Entertainment, a developer that's be known to miss the odd bug or two. Like the one that strips your character's permanent buffs and abilities if you double-click equipment in your inventory.
After beating the main game of Fallout: New Vegas on a single healthbar, Let's Player Many A True Nerd is back once more—and he's making the challenge even more bonkers.
After spending more than a thousand hours playing Fallout: New Vegas, a YouTuber called Many A True Nerd decided to do one more run of the game. But it wouldn't be any old type of playthrough. This run would be a challenge, even for a Fallout master that knows the game like the back of his hand.
Pillars of Eternity has been shuffling release dates for a little while, but Obsidian Entertainment sound pretty confident about March 26. The old school RPG raised $3.9 million on Kickstarter back in October 2012, and it was supposed to come out in spring 2014. Then, it was late 2014. Now, it's March 26. Hopefully!
What better way to make the wait for Fallout 4 news more torturous than to look back on some of what made the older games so excellent?
One of the best things to do in South Park: The Stick of Truth is to wander around and check every corner for funny references. I bet Stan's father already called the number on that Minecraft ad. He had some issues finding out how to tame a Minecraft horse in one of the episodes...
"No, Uplay will not be featured in South Park: The Stick of Truth." Obsidian Entertainment, on whether Steam users would have to use Ubisoft's online platform to play the game. They later clarified that on PC, Stick of Truth would be "a Steam game, with Steam achievements," and that "Uplay was not integrated at all."
If you enjoyed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II and hate Electronic Arts, then this next sentence should make your heart flutter: Obsidian Entertainment, the studio that gave us Fallout: New Vegas and an unfinished KOTOR II have pitched another Star Wars role-playing game set between Episodes III and IV.
Feargus Urquhart was freaking out.
Here's a heartbreaker: Obsidian Entertainment was *this* close to starting work on Baldur's Gate 3. They spent over a year negotiating the deal. And then the whole thing fell apart.
