Obsidian misses Fallout: New Vegas bonus by one Metacritic point

Luck is not with Obsidian at the moment

Staff at Obsidian are cursing their bad luck after they missed out on their bonus for Fallout: New Vegas by a very narrow margin.

Obsidian's Chris Avellone revealed that they missed out on their bonus due to the game scoring only 84 percent on Metacritic when the score threshold for the bonus was 85 percent.

Avellone said on his Twitter account, "@Gahzcan FNV was a straight payment, no royalties, only a bonus if we got an 85+ on Metacritic, which we didn't."

This is made worse by the fact that Fallout: New Vegas sold 5 million copies and made around 300 million USD.
