Hmm. Tis interesting if it's true. I wouldn't have said it was an 'absolute failure'. It's good, just not great.

I'm assuming New Vegas is fine because it has nothing to do with Sega right? As it's under Bethesda's control to a certain extent I think...

Absolute failure is a huge overstatement, even if for some reason you don't like the game (i.e. you're extremely anal and/or like to hate on things randomly). All of the comments are inconceivable, from my perspective.

Really, it just sounds like an upset employee or ex-employee to me, or some Internet weirdo.

Yeah, Bethesda is the publisher.

Bethesda is the owner of the series and publishers but their letting obsidian make Fallout New Vegas since they made the first game

They don't own it completely -- Interplay has partial rights. And Obsidian didn't make the first game, Black Isle did (and the second one). Some members of Black Isle went on to form Obsidian.

I thought some elements of the game weren't so hot -- but the game is really far from being an "absolute failure". Maybe it could have been a lot better though, perhaps...

Interplay was granted the license by Bethesda to make an MMO based on Fallout ( which will fail, as Interplay is no longer the company the original was (think of Infogrames running the Atari name into the ground). Bethesda owns ALL of the Fallout series completely. As far as Obsidian making it, I'm not too worried. So far, looks like only their original IPs are complete crap (Alpha Protocol), the sequels they do to other people's games are merely substandard and buggy (KotOR 2, NWN 2, etc.).
