With Fallout: New Vegas at last reaching store shelves, and the vice-grip of Fallout addicts everywhere, it's time to see what the equally-ensnared press thought of the game.

Here is a pretty vast collection of New Vegas reviews we've seen so far. We'll of course add to the list as more start to pop up.

<a href="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-10-19-fallout-new-vegas-review">Eurogamer</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: "New Vegas may jump across America for its setting, and forward several years in the timeline, but it's a seamless continuation of what Bethesda set in motion in 2008 with Fallout 3."

<a href="http://www.gamepro.com/article/reviews/216971/fallout-new-vegas">GamePro</a> <strong>(4.5/5)</strong>: "It closely matches Fallout 3 in terms of depth and content; if you loved the original, you'll probably love this one as well."

<span style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.oxm.co.uk/article.php?id=23028">Official Xbox Magazine UK</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: </span><span class="text_article_body">"All you have to do is listen to the post-game chatter of those that have played it and you'll learn that, sure enough, Obsidian has created something that's consistent yet unpredictable enough that everyone's adventure feels like it's something unique and worth sharing."</span>

<a href="http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/112/1128811p1.html">IGN UK</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: "Like 3 and Oblivion before it, New Vegas is a game to share stories about, one that lets you carve your own path through a beautifully constructed world."

<span style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/gamesblog/2010/oct/19/fallout-new-vegas-review?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter">The Guardian</a> <strong>(5/5)</strong>: "</span>Writing this review has been difficult simply because I've been itching to strap on my Pipboy, get back to the wasteland and do a bit more exploring – there's nothing quite like it. I think you'll feel the same."

As you may have heard in last week's episode of <a href="http://bethblog.com/index.php/2010/10/01/the-bethesda-podcast-episode-3-parity-error/">The Bethesda Podcast</a>, 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 <a href="http://static.zenimax.com/bethblog/upload/2010/10/vegascake2.jpg">here</a> and <a href="http://static.zenimax.com/bethblog/upload/2010/10/vegascake3.jpg">here</a> 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:

<a href="http://comics.ign.com/articles/110/1107292p1.html">IGN</a> has an interview with New Vegas Creative Director, Chris Avellone, discussing "All Roads" -- the graphic novel he wrote that comes packaged with the <a href="http://bethblog.com/index.php/2010/05/11/your-first-look-at-the-fallout-new-vegas-collectors-edition/">Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition</a>. Here's a snippet of the interview:

<blockquote>"Finally, we asked Avellone if gamers who read the comic can expect its characters to appear and its events to be referenced. He said, "If you read the graphic novel, you'll see the results of many of the events, locations, and fates of the characters in the comic in primary and secondary locations in the game - as well as characters you'll encounter in these locations."</blockquote>
