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...
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...
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.

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...
id Software's Rage has launched for PC and the various consoles, but the game comes loaded with a laundry list of issues. Most of the graphical problems appear to affect ATI users, but not all--texture pop-in is reportedly a huge issue for both Nvidia and ATI. Texture pop-in, for those of you who've somehow missed the phenomenon, is that split-second delay between pig-ugly visuals and actual graphics that's invaded PCs since console ports became the norm. We've borrowed a pair of screenshots from Duke Nukem Forever, where the effect was particularly egregious, to illustrate. ATI released a Rage... Read more...

Fallout fans rejoice! Bethesda Softworks has posted a short teaser for their currently under development Fallout 3. After purchasing the rights to the franchise from Interplay a few years ago, it's great to see that Bethesda is taking the task of creating the third installment of the Fallout series seriously. Having been a Fallout fan for years I admit to that after hearing Bethesda would be making the third fallout I was a bit apprehensive. Bethesda has made some great games including the wildly popular Elder Scrolls series but as any Fallout fan knows Fallout is not just about game play, it’s... Read more...
