I’m pretty hopeful that Bethesda’s upcoming scare ‘em up The Evil Within will help give the horror genre the mainstream shot in the arm that it deserves. But at the same time, I just cannot condone its blatant misuse of barbed wire, painting that entire industry in a negative light. We’ve been too afraid to speak up, as we’ve already been paid off for a 9/10 review. Fortunately, one outlet still has some integrity.
As bored as I am with first person shooters in general , I’m curiously keen for MachineGames’ new Wolfenstein. I think modern shooters have had their day, and perhaps its time to revisit that familiar territory – even if it is an alternate history. In The New Order, ze Nazis won ze war and it’s up to stalwart Wolfenstein hero William 'B.J.' Blazkowicz to shift the tides in favour of the allied uprising.
Are you flash with cash? Want a little extra kick in your jackboot? Well achtung baby, because I’ve got just what you need, in the form of the Wolfenstein Panzerhund Edition. A collector’s Edition of the game so limited, that it doesn’t even include the actual game.
Here’s a bunch of concept art for The Elder Scrolls Online, showing off dragons, demons and furniture. And that’s about all I have. Seriously, I could take forever about Skyrim, but I know buggerall about the online world of Tamriel. Anyway, feel free to stare and marvel at the fine art after the link. I’m off to go make myself some breakfast. Yes, I know it’s past noon.
I can’t see Dishonored not getting a sequel. The game was well received, Bethesda saw the chance to craft a new money-making universe and there’s a bunch of disappointed Thief gamers right now who would embrace it with open arms. Is it coming? Well here’s some more evidence to lend credence to the first rumour.
Sequels! Get yer sequels! Fresh from the development studio! Includes extra crunch time! Get it on a stick! Good for what ails ya!
We’ve been hearing rumours, whispers and straight out lies about the impending arrival of a sequel to Fallout. Most of the hubbub began with a teaser website and its resultant Augmented Reality Game that had rabid Fallout Fans poking for clues all over the internet. that turned out to be a fan-made bit of fakery. So when will be hearing news of a new Fallout? Not for a while yet, according to Bethesda’s Todd Howard.
The Elder Scrolls Online seems to be giving us enough information on a regular basis to build up speed on that hype train. I'm still not sure about the monthly subscription plus purchasing the game set-up. I don't like that part. But, with the game looking this fantastic, I may need to give it a whirl, at least for a month or two. Or ten.
One of my favourite games of the last couple of years, that I may have spent too many damn hours inside of, has to be The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It was massive, awesome and beautiful. And now it looks like it may be headed towards new-gen consoles.
For most, the true horror that will be faced today is the fact that they’re back in the seventh circle of hell known as work. But this year, there’ll be some genuine frights on the horizon when The Evil Within rears its ugly insanity-infected head.
It hasn’t been a fun couple of weeks for Fallout fans. With the Spike VGX awards coming up, many thought that Bethesda would be showing off a PS4 and Xbox One version of Fallout 4, something bolstered by a mysterious website. That turned out to be a hoax. But Fallout 4 may still be alive, and it could be set somewhere wicked awesome.
That Fallout 4 teaser site suckered a lot of people, raising way too much false hope. The guy who went through all of that trouble is naturally not one of the internet’s favourite people right now, has explained just why he did it. He’s also called himself a “douche,” which is a sentiment that’s hard to argue with.
I hope you weren’t too excited by he prospect of a brand new Fallout game on the horizon. Not only did the “teaser site” fail to have a payload, or Bethesda fail to show anything at the VGX or awards; the whole site’s been confirmed to be a fake.
There have been rumours, conjecture and supposition that a Fallout 4 announcement was coming this weekend. It all started when a mysterious site, thesurvivor2299.com popped up on the internet, filled with clues and hints pointing towards a Fallout reveal. That site, however, is largely suspected to be a hoax.Bethesda’s not keeping the fire of hope burning either.
Elder Scrolls Online is looking really pretty, and I've got to say I'm getting more than a little excited about it. Considering the success of previous Elder Scrolls games, I can only imagine how well an MMO version will go down. Now, as Bethesda reveal the character progression system, things are coming together.
