And Obsidian steps up and releases the trailer for Outer-Worlds which throws so much shade (intentional or not) at Bethesda and looks more Fallout then the last two Fallout games combined. The hits just keep on coming for Bethesda.
The game case may not be radioactive but it sure smelled strongly of what I can best describe as "old corn chips." I ordered a physical copy with some other things from Amazon during Black Friday and nothing else smelled like that.
