Before we get all festive at our holiday party this weekend, I thought I’d share some compelling coverage for our games.

Additionally, in the past week, Time.com’s Techland has had a couple features on the game. Head there to read Evan Narcisse’s quick-look preview, as well as an interview with Richard Ham and Paul Wedgwood.

Dead Money will be available via Xbox LIVE on Tuesday, December 21st.

Yesterday Kotaku AU posted a story on someone who created their very own Platinum Chip — similar to what we released with the game’s Collector’s Edition — but that actually works as a storage device. Head to the Overclockers forums to see how member Chewman_BG made it.
Pretty cool… we just hope Benny leaves him alone.
Really late to the party on this one, but this week Nick and others shared this hilarious mod for New Vegas. At New Vegas Nexus, Two bears high fiving from tehdman becomes the no-brainer answer to Doc Mitchell’s rorschach test.
Well played, tehdman, well played.

Even Benny’s got some serious moves on the wasteland dance floor thanks to a New Vegas mod currently making the rounds. With a single console command, you too can bring out the inner “Hip Hop Shake” in every on-screen character. While the PC mod doesn’t technically support Kinect, we won’t stop you from rearranging your furniture and gettin’ busy.
Download umpa’s dance mod, and many others, on the New Vegas Nexus.
