Fallout: New Vegas achievements leaked

The achievements for Fallout: New Vegas have been leaked. You can see them over on the Fallout wiki. Aside from quest names, there are no spoilers as far as I can tell in the list.

I would like to point out one in particular, however...
Hardcore (100GS or Gold trophy)
"Beat the game on Hardcore mode"
BRB SUICIDE :c

(If you don't know what "Hardcore mode" is, see here for an explanation.)

IGN: Fallout: New Vegas Has Robot Sex

IGN posted an article detailing the ESRB's description of Fallout: New Vegas, which included the potential for robot sex within the game:
There is also an extended sequence suggesting (no depiction) sexual activity with a robot (e.g., "Fisto reporting for duty . . . Please assume the position," "I suppose I should test you out . . . Servos active!" and "Something wrong with someone if they got to f**k a machine.")

NGL I LOL'D. And you can guarantee I will be looking for these sex robots ASAP once I get the game, yep. There's definitely something wrong with me.

Josh Sawyer explains reason for NV's definitive endings

From 1up:
We want to make it a definitive ending. Initially, we talked about trying to support post-game play, but because the changes that can happen at the end of the game are pretty major, this is what it basically came down to: either have the changes feel really major in the end slides and then have them not be very major after the end of the game, or make them really minor and not that impactful. And we feel it's better to say, 'you know what, we're just going to end the game, and the changes you made can be minor or really really big, but because we can't script all the changes to the Wasteland to let you keep playing, we're just going to stop it there.'
Sawyer also mentions players will receive a warning when they near the end of the game, allowing players to decide whether to continue playing or finish the game.

X-Play video preview + DLC confirmation

2. Jason Bergman confirms that Obsidian will be creating DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.
When I asked Fallout: New Vegas senior producer Jason Bergman if DLC would be coming for that game, too, here was his excited-but-short-on-details reply: "Yes! Yes, we do! That is the answer to that question!"

He wouldn't go into specifics, except to assure me that Obsidian and Bethesda are "working on getting the game out the door first." But in case you were wondering, plans are certainly in place to put out New Vegas add-ons "after the fact."

We likely won't have to wait too long after the game's October 19th release for the first DLC to hit. When I guessed out loud that New Vegas add-ons would be coming "way down the line," Bergman corrected me: "Not way down the line, but down the line."

IGN previews Fallout: New Vegas at Gamescom

This close to the game's October release, it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise but Fallout: New Vegas has been polished and fattened up and is very nearly ready for show time. At this year's Gamescom event in Cologne, we were given the chance to sit down with a near final version of the game – and we had a full hour from the opening credits onwards to get as far into the sucker as possible. Naturally, we abused this privilege as much as we possibly could.

How so? Well, first of all, by ignoring the quest completely. Instead, after awakening in Goodsprings and choosing a foxy femme fatale (and going through the necessary motions to create a solid temporary character with a few strong skills to see us through), we simply walked out of town, due south.
Read the rest here.
