One of the things most Doom fans liked when the original version launched way back in the day is that it would scare the crap out of you if you weren't careful (yes, those heavily pixelated demons were quite frightening). Doom was sneaky like that. The new rebooted Doom game on the Nintendo Switch (and other platforms) is good for a few frights as you play, but the sneakiest thing in the game has landed with the latest patch. Doom version 1.1.1 for the Nintendo Switch downloaded recently for some gamers and with that patch comes new motion controls for the game. Bethesda didn’t say anything... Read more...
Lynda Carter, the actress who is most memorable for playing Wonder Woman in the original TV series that aired in the 1970s, gets it. And by "it," I mean gaming. Specifically, single-player gaming, and the need for more of it. Having championed good over evil through several seasons on TV (among many other roles in her long and impressive career), Carter is now pushing for single-player gaming experiences, at the behest of Bethesda. This is not a totally serious cause, mind you, but in a tongue-in-cheek attempt by Bethesda to pitch its single-player games this holiday season. The former woman of... Read more...
Is there anything more satisfying than blasting Nazis? It is at least in the running for the top spot of fun things to do, and Bethesda will ensure you can keep doing exactly that in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, with several bits of DLC that are on the way this holiday season. Dubbed "Freedom Chronicles," the first bit called Episode Zero is available now, with others to follow starting December 14. "Episode Zero introduces you to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant and Gerald Wilkins as they fight for freedom in the American Territories. Blast your way through Nazis using unique abilities and...

Are you ready to "Make America Nazi-Free Again"? Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on Friday for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows, and the game has already drawn a lot of controversy for the aforementioned slogan and its rather brutal and risqué trailers. However, all that fans of the Wolfenstein franchise want to know is what kind of hardware will they need to starting curb-stomping some Nazi bad guys? Well, Bethesda and MachineGames have released the system requirements for Wolfenstein II, and it appears that you won't need to have a burly system to be able to enjoy the game at high...

For so many reasons, Wolfenstein II looks to be a fantastic new addition to the classic game series, and as such, publisher Bethesda has pushed its advertising and promotional effort hard. As the company is quickly finding out, however, even if you think an advertising campaign provides a bulletproof message, you're may still to have to deal with backlash, especially if it also pushes the envelope a bit. In this particular case, Bethesda published a trailer that held back no punches, stating: "Make America Nazi-Free Again." Blunt? Incredibly. Unfortunately, white supremacist and Nazi-related subjects... Read more...
If you haven't experienced any of the post-nuclear worlds from the popular Fallout series, now is your chance to jump on board, starting at the beginning. Bethesda, which owns the rights to the original Fallout game developed by Interplay, is celebrating the title's 20th anniversary by giving it away for free on Steam, for a limited time. Players have until 11:59 PM (Pacific) on September 30 to claim the title on Steam and add it to their library. It does not have to be installed right away, or even by the deadline, but it does have to be added. After that, it will remain in the player's game catalog... Read more...
DOOM was rebooted last year for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game was praised for its frantic gameplay and stellar graphics, which were backed by potent console hardware and the [then] nascent GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics cards. But how would DOOM look on a gaming system that is considered by many to woefully underpowered by modern hardware standards? We're getting a glimpse today as DOOM for the Nintendo Switch has been demoed to the gaming press, and by all accounts, this port looks damn good. The Nintendo Switch is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra X1 ARM-based SoC, which has a 256-core... Read more...
We got our first taste of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus earlier this year at E3 when a trailer was released for the highly anticipated game. As the follow-up to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein II: New Colossus sees the American spirit paralyzed, as the Nazi's scored a decisive victory during World War II and have extended their dominion to the United States. If the first trailer wasn't enough to get you pumped, then this new gameplay trailer will definitely get you in the mood for some Nazi curb stomping. However, let’s first set the stage, courtesy of developer Bethesda: They've... Read more...
Fallout 4 was first released nearly two years ago (November 10th, 2015), and has seen a number of updates and DLC packs released during that time. To cash in on the success of the game, while at the same time bundling in all of the available updates to-date, Bethesda is releasing a new Game of the Year Edition of the game. According to Bethesda, you’ll find updates (including Survival Mode) along with the much-appreciated graphical enhancements that have been added to the game over the past since its release. Mods are supported on both PCs and consoles, and of course, you’ll gain access to the... Read more...
Bethesda says "there's never been a time to go to Hell," and that is exactly where the publisher wants to send you. Not literally, of course—Bethesda is talking about its Doom reboot. To make the notion of heading down into the fiery underworld more appealing, Bethesda is rolling out what it calls the "ultimate" Doom experience with a brand new 6.66 update patch and a free weekend of game play. The new patch includes a whole bunch of fixes and improvements across multiplayer and SnapMap. It also unlocks every bit of multiplayer DLC as Bethesda retires its season pass. That means gamers now have... Read more...
2016's DOOM pulled off what to some seemed impossible: it proved that series reboots can be amazing. The game was well-received on every platform it was released on, so it's no surprise that Bethesda didn't want to waste too much time coughing up another iteration. For VR fans, this latest one is going to taste oh-so-sweet. DOOM VFR is a standalone game, rather than an add-on for last year's release. Fortunately, it's not going to carry the cost of a brand-new game, with the preorder priced at $29.99 USD. We're not quite sure what VFR stands for, but if we had to guess, it could be "Virtual F***ing... Read more...
Some things just never seem to get old. You know, things like watching the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl or cracking open a beer from a boat while fishing. It is a long list, and if we turn our attention to PC gaming, you can add killing Nazis to it. In case you need a fix in that department, Bethesda promises plenty of action in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the first trailer of which was revealed at E3. Bethesda teased a sequel to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order at last year's E3, but waited until now to make a formal reveal. This latest entry in the series follows The New Order... Read more...
Boston is going to be filled with drunk Celtics fans this weekend if the spunky team in green manages to upset the Cleveland Cavaliers to extend the Eastern Conference Finals. Or it will be a post-nuclear wasteland, though not as a result of a loss. It just all depends on your plans—to see the latter, you can fire up Fallout 4 for free this weekend on your Xbox One or PC through Steam. This will be the first time that Fallout 4 has been free to play for an entire weekend, and an extended one at that. Bethesda has already unlocked the game on Xbox One and will do the same on Steam later this afternoon.... Read more...
Are you ready to be swept up into the lies, deceit, and treachery of Morrowind Great House politics? The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind trailer was just released and offers a glimpse of the “cutthroat clan-feuds of Vvardenfell” and the Morag Tong assassins. The Elder Scrolls Online’s latest chapters returns to the island of Vvardenfell, seven hundred years before the events of The Elder Scrolls Three: Morrowind.
