Dear Morgan: Don’t eat the legs… (UPDATED)

… they’re metal!

During our recent trip to id Software, one of my favorite pictures I took was of DOOM’s Spidermastermind. The photo eventually became the model for LA bakery, Sweet and Saucy Cake Shop, to create a DOOM-themed cake. The cake was delivered today to X-Play’s X-Play’s Morgan Webb. For those attending QuakeCon, Morgan will be on hand to moderate our 20 Years of id Software panel.

As you may have heard in this week’s episode of The Bethesda Podcast, Fallout: New Vegas is officially finished and off to manufacturing. Congratulations to the team!

In other news, look at that cake. It was presented to New Vegas designer Robert Lee on his birthday, which happened to coincide with the official end of development.

“Complete surprise birthday present from my wife,” says Lee. “I had no clue she was planning this.”

The cake was designed by Christopher Garrens, whose Costa Mesa bakery “Let Them Eat Cake” is regularly featured on WEtv’s Amazing Wedding Cakes. Click here and here for a few more angles.

Also on the podcast, we revealed the PC system requirements for New Vegas. In case you missed it, here they are in chart form:
