I can tell you it is difficult, managing staff and organization are essentials to maintaining consistent flowing content and traffic. Right now, I'm trying to get noticed enough among news outlets and the gaming community in order for PR to allow me access into mailing lists and to eventually getting review copies. On top of that, we don't get paid for our work, so we have to try and motivate ourselves in terms of non-monetary incentives such as experience, contacts, and the like.
Chill out from the plethora of the launch weeks activites by introducing the first of many game nights for the community. This time, the 360 crew will be assembling a sure to be epic Gears of War 2 multiplayer bout while the peeps at PS3 will be catering madness on a stick with Resistance 2 multiplayer.

There seems to be a dichotomy between people who played the original Fallout series and people who like Bethseda and Oblivion and it seems to correlate with whether they like the game or not.
Personally, I played Oblivion - never completed the main quest because I kept getting sidetracked due to the open world factor which totally throws me off in video games. Never played a single Fallout game.
