Here’s another web roundup to fill up your web browsers before digging into turkey and mashed potatoes.
In last week’s In the ‘Works, we shared new details on Fallout: New Vegas’ upcoming DLC, Dead Money, which hits Xbox LIVE on December 21st. You can also check out the content’s fact sheet, and above we’ve got the first screenshot.
More news, including coverage on the iPhone release of RAGE, after the jump.
With RAGE’s release on iTunes, id Software technical director and co-founder, John Carmack, took some time away from rocket ships and videogames to talk about the game’s release. In Joystiq’s coverage, Carmack discusses his desire to do a racing-based RAGE title, as well as other ideas he has for the platform.
