We prefer to think of Obsidian games as flawed masterpieces instead of just flawed, but when it’s coming to the point where there’s literally no release without at least a few corkers it’s hard to stay all zen about it.

The issue with the newly released “Honest Hearts” DLC apparently takes place somewhere during a sidequest called “E-DE, My Love”. “If you already have a save game where the bug is occurring, the fix will not apply and you’ll need to revert to an earlier save prior to ED-E leaving in order to play through Honest Hearts,” according to a post on Bethesda’s blog. Come on, Obsidian, New Vegas must have sold enough for you to afford new, better or just plain more scripters.
