Conan O'Brien is the type of comedian that people tend to either really like or loathe. As for me, I'm a fan of his infectious personality and find him hilarious, especially when he sits down to play and review video games—or in this case, just get riled up playing Doom with a couple of NFL players headed to the Super Bowl. Playing the recurring role of Clueless Gamer, Conan sits in a "cheap Marriott conference room" flanked by Josh Norman, a cornerback for the Carolina Panthers, and Von Miller, a linebacker for the Denver Broncos. Before they even get to any gameplay, Conan brings up the fact... Read more...
Bethesda and id Software are in the process rebooting the Doom franchise and it seems like it’s been in development for ages. When we last visited the upcoming Doom remake, Bethesda had posted a giblet-filled trailer which showed some pretty impressive gameplay visuals, kickass hand-to-hand combat and plenty of head stomping. Today, Bethesda's release clued us in on something that Doom fans have been anticipating for years: an actual release date. Mark your calendars for May 13th, because that’s when Doom will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and of course, the PC platform. Gamers will... Read more...
If you spot a developer for Bethesda Game Studios in a bar, buy the guy or gal a beer (or Nuka Cola Quantum), it's well earned. How so? The latest update for Fallout 4 introduces a laundry list of fixes, both for general gameplay and for specific quests, plus adds a handful of new features to boot. This is anything but a generic update. The patch is available as an automatic download for PC players on Steam and will be available to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this week. Among its highlights, the latest Fallout 4 update adds a new ambient occlusion setting called HBAO+. You probably recognize... Read more...
Thirsty gamers rejoice, a second shipment of Nuka Cola Quantum is heading to Target stores, Bethesda announced on its Fallout 4 Twitter account. The popular post-apocalyptic beverage, which is a replica of the in-game drink that restores hit points, sold out in quick order the first time Target offered it. It was always meant to be a limited edition item. Bethesda partnered with Jones Soda Company to produce the blue-colored beverage, which is the same as the company's berry lemonade soda but with Nuka Cola Quantum packaging. Though it was meant to be a limited run, Bethesda was probably surprised... Read more...
A special Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 proved so immensely popular among fans of the Fallout franchise that once it sold out, Bethesda released a statement explaining it produced as many bundles as it possibly could and not to expect more of them. Well, Bethesda was apparently wrong, and we're sure Fallout fans won't mind one little bit. Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition is back in stock at Amazon for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. They aren't being sold by a third-party seller through the online retailer , they're new bundles that ship from and are sold by Amazon for $120, the same price as before.... Read more...
There's a subtle yet rather interesting Easter egg in Fallout 4 that suggests the apocalyptic wasteland has something in common with Bethesda's other super popular video game franchise, The Elder Scrolls, the most recent of which is Skyrim. Yes, both are open worlds, but that's not all they share in common, or so it appears. The link between the two comes down to a mysterious plant in Fallout 4. You may have discovered this if you've allied yourself with the Brotherhood of Steel. For those that haven't, the plant in question resides at the research station on the Prydwen, a modified and heavily... Read more...
One thing you won't find in any of the reviews of Fallout 4, including our own, is any mention of a harpoon gun. Nevertheless, it exists, though not in the final version of the game that made it to retail. Apparently it's a weapon that Bethesda's developers created but later scrapped, or maybe it's intended for a future DLC release. Either way, it's been found by modder xxdeathknight72xx, who dug the weapon up from the game's code. There's a YouTube video that shows the harpoon gun in action, complete with trails of bubbles, a strong indicator that an underwater level was either in the plans at... Read more...
Developer and publisher Bethesda is over the moon happy with the initial response to Fallout 4, the newest and fifth major installment in its highly popular post-apocalyptic Fallout series. Fallout 4 exploded onto the market with 12 million copies shipped and $750 million in sales on its first day of availability and, as Bethesda notes in a gushing blog post, it can't thank fans enough for their response. "Thank you! We can't say it enough -- thank you for the amazing support you've given us," Bethesda says. "We're incredibly blessed to have so many incredible fans. You've made Fallout 4 not just...

There have been so many quality games to come out this year that it's hard to tell if Bethesda's latest epic, Fallout 4, will come out on top, but it sure has a good chance to. And that's despite the fact that as with any Bethesda title at launch, Fallout 4 can prove ridiculously buggy at times. As you'd expect, Bethesda is hard at work on getting these bugs squashed, but it definitely takes time. While some bugs are minor things we'd expect with any new game launch, some in Fallout 4 are downright maddening. A good example of one has been discussed at reddit as well as the game's official forums.... Read more...
One of the web's most popular adult video sites saw a significant dip in traffic in the hours after Bethesda released Fallout 4, one of the most anticipated video games of the year. Keeping in mind that correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation, the trend observed is at least interesting, if nothing else.Adult video site Pornhub said its viewership from gamers dropped 10 percent below its average after Fallout 4 (our review) released on November 10. The decrease in traffic started at around 5 AM, or about the time gamers would have finished downloading and installing the title. The unusual... Read more...
We knew that Fallout 4 was going to be a blockbuster for Bethesda — it was a forgone conclusion. After all, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas were released in 2008 and 2010 respectively, leaving Fallout fans with a long drought to contend with. With the release of Fallout 4, that drought is over, and the fans came out in droves. Bethesda announced today that Fallout 4 is “generating record sales at retail outlets and via digital download for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and PC” and that it shipped 12 million copies of the game on the first day of availability, representing...

The folks at Bethesda are really keeping us on our toes this week. Just this morning, the Fallout 4 developer released a new Pip-Boy app that will allow gamers to sync up and access their in-game data on the go. Although the app is infinitely cooler when hooked up to your own Pip-Boy replica, it works just as well without it. Now, Bethesda has released a new launch trailer for Fallout 4, and it provides us with a nearly three-minute-long look at in-game footage. And the footage is glorious, giving us a quick overview of the plot, shelter building and even combat aspects of the gameplay. Needless... Read more...
The Fallout 4 gravy train continues to chug along with the release today of an official Pip-Boy companion app for the game. Best of all, the app will work regardless of whether you dropped some serious coin for the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4. The app can sync with Fallout 4 on your PC, Xbox One or PlayStation 4 and provides access to your inventory, stats, map, and your radio. You’re even capable of playing holotape games without having to interrupt your action on the big screen. Bethesda has also managed to cram in the Atomic Command mini-game, which is basically the classic game Missile Command... Read more...
If you just can’t get enough of Fallout 4, you’ll be happy to know that Turn 10 Studios and Bethesda Game Studios have teamed up to bring Fallout 4-themed vehicles to Forza Motorsport 6. This is a crossover of epic proportions, which combines two of today’s hottest gaming properties. “Everyone asks us if you can drive the cars in Fallout 4, and now we can say yes – in Forza, our favorite racing game,” said Bethesda Game Studios Game Director Todd Howard. There are two vehicles that will be available to Forza Motorsport 6 players; one of which is based on its real life counterpart and one that is... Read more...
