Senior Designer Chris Avellonehasattributed these bugsto the size of the game, saying, “I think when you create a game as large as Fallout 3 or New Vegas you are going to run into issues that even a testing team of 300 won't spot, so we're just trying to address those as quickly as possible and so is Bethesda.”

We still like you, Fallout: New Vegas, even if you've got an unfortunatelittle infestation going on.
