If you're wondering why all your Android device-toting buddies are no longer answering your messages, there's a reasonable explanation. They've all been abducted by aliens! Just kidding -- the real reason you can't get in touch with them is because they're playing Fallout Shelter...on their Android gadgets! Did we blow your mind? No, they haven't hacked their Android smartphones and tablets to run iOS, previously the only mobile platform you could play Fallout Shelter. Instead, Bethesda Softworks finally got around to porting the anticipated title to Android, just as promised, which is now available... Read more...
Fans of the Fallout franchise are eagerly awaiting the release of Fallout 4, and if you were lucky enough to secure a pre-order for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition, pat yourself on the back on a job well done. You may also want to gloat on Twitter and/or send your condolences to everyone else who missed out on the $119 bundle, because when Bethesda warned that quantities would be very limited, it wasn't kidding.Retailers are sold out of the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition bundle, and no, Bethesda won't be producing more of them. It's not because Bethesda doesn't want to, it's because the company can't.... Read more...
Just over month ago, Bethesda quenched the appetites of longtime Fallout fanatics with gameplay footage of Fallout 4. But that wasn’t all that Bethesda had in store for fans, it also released Fallout Shelter, a mobile app which lets you take charge of your own underground nuclear shelter. At the time, the Fallout Shelter was only made available for iOS users, but that will change come August 13th. On that date Bethesda will make the game available to Android users as well. When the Android version lands, it will also bring with it some fresh updates that include a robot companion named Mr. Handy.... Read more...
Doom’s official launch isn’t until the Spring of 2016, but you’re going to have a couple chances to scratch that itch while you wait. For one thing, QuakeCon 2015 is underway this weekend and Bethesda is expected to give some attendees a crack at a pre-Alpha version of Doom multiplayer. For another, the company is gearing up for the Doom Multiplayer Alpha, which is going to open on multiple platforms in the near future. Bethesda said this week that it plans open the Doom 4 multiplayer Alpha to PC players and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players alike. Getting signed up for the Alpha isn’t free, but... Read more...
Leave it to Bethesda to knock it out of the park with collector’s editions for its games. If your recall, the company kicked off Fallout 4 pre-orders with the Pip-Boy edition which included a wearable Pip-Boy that hooks up with your smartphone, a capsule case, a Robco Industries stand, and of course a copy of the game (among other things). Priced at a relatively low (for a collector’s edition) $119, the Pip-Boy Edition sold out quickly. And as Bethesda made it clear in late June, it won’t be restocked, meaning that if you didn’t get your hands on a pre-order, you’ll have to duke it out on eBay... Read more...
If you followed this year's E3 -- particularly Bethesda's first annual press conference -- you still remember the wave of nostalgia and tech lust that washed over you when Fallout 4 director Todd Howard announced that for the low price of $119, you could secure your very own wearable Pip-Boy. Howard also emphasized that the upcoming RPG's Pip-Boy Edition would be very limited in quantity, and he wasn't joking. Bethesda's final allocation of Fallout 4 Collector's Edition bundles have shipped to retailers, and when they're gone, they're gone.  Correction: When they're gone, they'll inevitably... Read more...
Every Fallout fan who didn't send Bethesda Softworks thousands of bottle caps is now kicking themselves. Well, that's assuming they had a stockpile of bottle caps to begin with. A guy named Seth did -- around 2,240 beer caps that he amassed over a seven-year period while attending college. With Fallout 4 on the horizon, he sent the beer caps to Bethesda in hopes of scoring a copy of the game, and the stunt worked! "Fallout 3 was my favorite game for several years, so I made the rational choice to start saving up bottle caps," Seth explained on imgur. "Turns out 4.5 years of undergrad and 3 years...

It’s been too long since we stalked the halls of the hapless Martian military base in Doom 3, blowing monsters to bits and cursing at the gameplay mechanic that dropped bad guys directly behind us. Now, with rumors of a Doom 4 having been proven true, we’re dying to get back in there and settle the score. By the looks of the Doom trailer that Bethesda put on YouTube just yesterday, things are going to get even gorier. Doom 3 was intensely bloody, but the new game really puts the id Tech 6 graphics engine to use, creating ‘realistic’ explosions of zombie limbs and flesh. As in games past, you’ll... Read more...
The Fallout 4 hype has hit epic levels in the past few weeks, and Bethesda simply knocked it out of the park last night by delivering some fresh details on the game along with a boatload of footage from the upcoming game. For starters, Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 will launch November 10 on the two leading current generation gaming consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) as well as the PC on November 10, so mark your calendars. As for the game itself, Fallout 4 has been baking in the oven since the launch of Fallout 3 back in 2009. Six years is a damn long time to develop a new game, and... Read more...
There are gamers, and then there are gamers who come to have such vast knowledge of their favorite games, it puts the rest of us in awe. As far as series go, there are not too many quite like Fallout. It has such a massive, loyal fanbase, that you could spend many days reading up on every little aspect of each game and their vast worlds. Fallout 4, announced last week, will be no different. What's not commonly seen is such in-depth analysis of a game being done before its launch - much less a single week after the announcement. But we're seeing that now with Fallout 4, as some rabid fans of the... Read more...
Here we go folks; buckle up and enjoy the ride! Bethesda has posted the first trailer for Fallout 4, which as we previously told you will be set in an alternate timeline Boston. If the screenshots and images of the retail box images were enough to raise your pulse, the trailer below is likely to give Fallout fans heart palpitations: For now, we’ll just have the trailer to hold us over until Bethesda’s “E3 Showcase” which will take place on Sunday, June 14 at 7PM PST (it will be streamed live via YouTube and Twitch)....

Yesterday, we brought you the momentous news that Bethesda had a new Fallout game in the works, and that a 10AM EST announcement Wednesday morning would seal the deal. Well, we haven’t quite crept up on 10AM yet, but the news surrounding Fallout 4 is coming in at a furious pace. We have official confirmation that Fallout 4 will not only be available on the PC, but also the two premier console platforms: Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4. As has been rumored for quite some time, the game is set in a Boston, with “Scollay Square” shown prominently in the screenshot below. We have also... Read more...
There are teaser trailers, and then there are teaser trailers. The newest installment in the Doom franchise is currently under the development, and id Software (along with publisher Bethesda) are trying to build hype for the game with a fresh pre-E3 2015 trailer. However, you had better not blink because the incredibly short, 12-second trailer only has roughly three seconds of actual game footage. What a tease! Thankfully, the footage that we do see looks awesome and gives us a clear look at the Revenant demon that gamers were first introduced to over twenty years ago with Doom 2. Another 1994-era...

"Before the 'New Order', there was... 'The Old Blood'." During GDC, Bethesda announced that MachineGames will be releasing a prequel "to everyone’s favorite Nazi-blasting first-person shooter of 2014" (do zombie games count or something?): Wolfenstein: The New Order. And based on the trailer, it looks awesome. The Old Blood acts like an expansion, but a standalone one (much like how Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon worked). It'll be available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and costs the same for each: $19.99. At least for now, this is going to be a download-only game. Assuming the role once again...
