Bethesda Announces Fallout 76, May Be A Online Survival Game

Bethesda had been running a mysterious and unannounced Twitch stream yesterday that was literally just a Fallout bobblehead standing upright in front of a camera and occasionally a “Please Stand By” title card.  Not exactly something that was going to set the world on fire, and it can be easy to see why the hype and announcement of Pokemon Lets Go: Eevee & Pikachu overshadowed anything Bethesda was doing it.  It turns out all of this was...

Skyrim Roars Onto The Nintendo Switch Today

Bethesda has released the long-awaited Nintendo Switch version of 2011’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It has been five years since the original release of Skyrim on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but the Nintendo Switch version does see several improvements from last year’s Skyrim: Special Edition. This means that the Switch version of Skyrim runs on a modified version of the 64-bit Fallout 4 engine and can make use of the system’s full 4GB of ram. As well Skyrim for Switch also includes the Dawnguard, Dragon...

Nuka-World Official Trailer Released Today

Nuka-World DLC

On August 30th, Fallout 4 fans will get to take on last summer vacation before we get into September. Bethesda Softworks’s last DLC entry in the post apocalyptic RPG adventure takes players to a theme park based on the Nuka Cola brand! Nuka-World seems to be a Disney parody sort of park with quite a lot to do. I mean, there’s even a Space Mountain like ride! Plus there’s Skee ball! Check out the trailer below for...

Bethesda Working on Three Big New Projects

New projects Bethesda

Apparently Bethesda is working on no less than three big projects, each of which represents a “Bethesda-style game”. Speaking at Dice in Las Vegas today, Todd Howard, the director of both Fallout 4 and Skyrim, had this to say: “We have three longer-term projects we’re doing that are all … we’ll talk about them at a much future date. But they’re different than anything we’ve done before while also being a Bethesda-style game; (they’re) big and crazy.”...

AMD Crimson Driver & Software Suite Rumored For Imminent Release

Owners of AMD cards have been seeing some inferior benchmarks when compared against comparable Nvidia hardware with recent titles like Batman: Arkham Asylum and The Witcher III. Many tech journalists and enthusiasts users have speculated that this disparity may have to do with these titles utilization of Nvidia’s proprietary GameWorks technologies. Rain effects in Batman, Lighting in Fallout 4 and hair in The Witcher III all utilize Nvidia exclusive technologies that AMD owners have had to tone...

Surprising No One Fallout 4 Is Still The 2nd Most Played Game On Steam

Bethesda’s Fallout 4 is the 2nd most played game on Steam a week after its release with 256,000+ players. This comes after the game broke existing records when it launched last week with 360,000 players – the game went live at midnight on November 11th. Previously RockStar Game’s Grand Theft Auto V held the record for concurrent players with 301,000+ when it was released on PC this past April. Fallout 4’s numbers are nowhere near the reigning...

Is DOOM Returning To It’s Roots?

Sure, it’s just a teaser trailer, but a lot of people are more excited than ever for the upcoming new DOOM game. First off, is that the cyber demon from the original DOOM game in the image above? We sure hope so! Game reboots are great and all, but for us classic gamers, it’s great to see nods to the content we grew up with. It brings our fond memories into glorious new graphics for a whole...

The Elder Scrolls Online Headed To Xbox One & PS4

Proof that developers and publisher still believe that MMO’s can work on consoles. Defiance has started off on a pretty good note, it lacks a little depth after putting in about 100+ hours but it’s still proof that they can work on a console. So, nothing makes me happier to confirm that Bethesda is bringing The Elder Scrolls Online to both the Xbox One & Playstation 4 – targeted at a 2014 release date. Straying from the...

Wolfenstein: The New Order Announced By Bethesda

So a new studio takes over a great...

Skyrim Gets Even More “Legendary”

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the best looking games you will find on a console. Probably one of the most massive worlds you will ever roam as well. It’s great to see a game, especially of this size, still getting the support it needs and deserves from Bethesda for the players who are still roaming the land in pursuit of legend, fame, and an arrow in the knee. So, if you’ve mastered playing Skyrim...
