Will Bethesda’s Teeth Fallout?

The Cake Is A Cake

As three-quarters of RPS quietly recover from the Thinkosium, this brought a smile to our collective faces as we tried to work out how to remove cheese from the floor our of my oven. In a move which I have to assume will be rejected as another half-baked notion by AIMs, Eidos Montreal send Bethesda a cake to congratulate them on shipping Fallout 3. Bless.

More on the Thinkosium in a bit. In short: THIS WAS A TRIUMPH, etc.


  1. Meat Circus says:

    They should definitely not let the animation team have a slice.

  2. Larington says:

    Theres one thing the Thinkosium definately needs:

    More seats/tickets.

    Wish I’d ordered a ticket straight away rather than giving it a few days. :-(

  3. Bobsy says:

    I guess cake is now the established currency of the games industry? I heartily approve of such deliciousness.

  4. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    It’s a lie, damnit!

    The title of this post made me want to kill you Kieron.

    *sharpens Knife*

    IN RELATED NEWS – you should have saved that portal song joke until the main post and had the whole thing as the post.

    @Bobsy – even if it isn’t, it bloody well should be.

  7. Cataclysm says:

    Totally off topic here, but I wish they would make a Sim Ant 2. They wouldn’t even need to make it greatly 3d. Such a greatly fun 2d little game.

  8. Draycen says:

    “from the floor our the oven”
    Drunken cheese sandwiches after you got back then eh?

  9. nabeel says:

    Aw that’s sweet.


  10. Ging says:

    Awesome, I made it home from the Thinkosium without dying in a ditch or being overly late for work (which I am now making myself late for by writing this, damn!)

    Thoughts on the thinkosium itself will be held until the RPS thoughts are posted (except, you know… “I’m Meat Circus” – “Oh, it’s you!”)

    I second the Sim Ants 2 idea. The cake could cameo.

  12. cyrenic says:

    To derail this thread even further, there was a great Sim Ant piece over at The Escapist: link to escapistmagazine.com

  13. Tiago Sá says:

    Neither the animation team or the voice actors should have a piece. Hines should eat the whole thing up. His department is the sole reason it’ll sell.

  14. Ben Abraham says:

    I’m making a note here, “huge. success.”?

    C’mon, someone had to finish what you started!

  15. Catastrophe says:

    ^– Cataclysm

    Thought I’d stick with my usual gaming name; Catastrophe.

  16. x25killa says:

    Did anyone send Bethesda a nuclear bomb? Oh the irony…

  17. Jochen Scheisse says:

    I am betting on drunken freezer pizza, upgraded with leftovers.

  18. Catastrophe says:

    Woah, someone who was blown away by SimAnt as much as me!

  19. Electric Dragon says:

    At least it’s not from 3D Realms. Their ‘cake’ would probably turn out to be a couple of pictures of a cake, attached to a letter in which they admit that they’re a bit behind on their baking because they’re on to their fourth oven now, and haven’t quite got the recipe right yet, but promise that it will be done “soon”.

    as we tried to work out how to remove cheese from the floor our of my oven
    Call me crazy, but have you tried….oven cleaner?

  21. rob says:

    Other than AOL Instant Messenger, what on earth does AIM stand for?

  22. StalinsGhost says:

    Solidarity between developers taking much loved licenses and braving the AIM to take things in their own direction maybe? :D

    I do think there’s a lot of similarities between Fallout 3 and Deus Ex 3 on that level anyway :P

  23. Noc says:

    Is that . . . a JC Vaultboy?

    Good God.

  24. Feet says:

    Rob: Angry Internet Macaques.

  25. Dizet Sma says:

    AIM = Angry Internet Man / Men, mayhap?

  26. eyemessiah says:

    It can’t be JC because JC WAS BLACK.

  27. Nick says:

    Mine was an albino greek restarant owner!

    I hadn’t worked this out until I read it here but it’s the most awesome thing ever.

  30. Andy Johnson says:

    How long before we read that Bethesda have tragically been assassinated in a ruthless poison-cake attack?

  31. Pags says:

    So when DX3 turns out to be rubbish, we’ll know we can blame it on the fact they spent too much time baking and not enough time making.

  32. Tei says:

    Now that Fallout 3 is released, Is time to create a Total Conversion, adding medieval stuff, like horses, blades, and a underworld. Maybe make so the main character is Dritzz and Is killing Balrogs in the underworld.

    How cool can this be? Drizzt killin Balrogs in the deeps of a Vault.

  33. Bobsy says:

    Nah, snot JC. It’s that new guy from DX3, Bobby Wettipants or something.

  34. Gap Gen says:

    So AIMs = Angry Internet Mans?

  35. yaoffit says:

    fallout 3 is not horrible.

  36. Fumarole says:

    Kieron, would you say the oven is now a Bloody Mess?

  37. terry says:

    There should be a law against rendering an image of Bono in icing.

  38. jonfitt says:

    My American oven cleans itself. Non-self-cleaning ovens are straight out of the 50s.
    Ah, British appliances. I don’t miss their small uselessness.
