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...

It has been rumored recently that Bethesda would have to push back the release date of Elder Scrolls Online for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so this official news isn't surprising. What is, though, is the fact that the game's being pushed back an entire six months. This is sure to come as a disappointment to those who had plans to spend some of their summer in Bethesda's latest virtual world. Delays like these are never taken lightly, and in the case of this one, Bethesda simply had no choice. The company has been best familiar with online games that were bound for the PC and Mac, where there... Read more...
Where does the time go? I can remember playing Wolfenstein 3D as if it weren't all that long ago, though it's actually been a long 22 years since it was released. Fast forward to today and we've seen a handful of followup titles, though the forthcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order will be the first not to bear the Id Software badge. You'll play as William "B.J." Blazkowicz, an American war hero, and it's your job to launch a counter-offensive against the Nazis who, in this alternate version of history, won World War II. The war is over and the Nazi regime is in charge, ruling the world with an iron... Read more...
Mention "next" and "Doom" in the same sentence, and people are sure to take notice. Such is the case today with Bethesda coming out of left field with the first mention of a beta for "the next Doom game" - still untitled, and with no release date in sight. Heck, we are not even being given a single screenshot. Wolfenstein: The New Order As iconic as the Doom series is, it hasn't seen a new title since 2004, with the release of Doom 3 (which I recall as the game that required a 1GB GPU for its top graphics settings - ouch!). "Doom 4" was announced in 2008, and was reported to have been started over... Read more...
In the world of software, it's not uncommon to learn of a program that's implemented vulnerable code for over a decade (Java, anyone?), but where gaming's concerned, that's another story. According to a security researcher simply going by "Joe", one such vulnerability has made Bethesda its home. Clearly the sort of guest that overstays their welcome, this vulnerability has appeared in the company's titles dating back to 2002, with Morrowind. Exploiting the vulnerability is a matter of loading up the in-game console and writing out some simple hex code to alter some memory addresses.... Read more...
Bethesda Softworks is prepping a new title in the Wolfenstein series that pits the franchise's hero, B.J. Blazkowicz, against an alternate-history version of the post World War II era in which the Nazis, not the Allies, were ultimately victorious. BJ, apparently on ice for more than a decade, awakens in this nightmare version of the future -- a nightmare that the trailer refers to as a "rewriting", implying that BJ, at least, is aware of what's happened. Some losses... are unthinkable Wolfenstein always delved heavily into the Nazi fascination with the occult; the last games in the series relied... Read more...
