Bethesda doesn't seem to have plans
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s second major expansion pack, Hearthfire, launched on PC this week – but the post-release discussion has been focused solely on the content’s absence on PlayStation 3. Bethesda admitted recently that it was struggling to get the expansion – and its predecessor, Dawnguard – to run on...
While Xbox 360 owners enjoy the second The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC pack, developer Bethesda has yet to release the first expansion on PlayStation 3. In fact, the company has revealed that it's struggling to get the content running on Sony’s platform at all – an unsurprising admission considering the game’s troubled launch...
No solution in sight
Bethesda has warned that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC pack may never release on PlayStation 3. The content launched on Xbox 360 earlier this year, prompting the developer to release a statement noting that it was having difficulties with the PS3. Those issues are ongoing according to the company’s community...
The essence of invisibility
Stealth gameplay in Bethesda’s upcoming Dishonored promises to be a bit more engaging than simply studying guard patterns. Instead you’ll need to take into account sound, peripheral vision and cover. Blowing out candles and peaking around corners will give you an advantage over your pursuers – assuming you’ve got...
The drama surrounding Prey 2 has reared its ugly head once again – this time due to the fact that the delayed title has been removed from Bethesda’s recently revamped website. "Since we had already announced it wasn't coming out this year, we simply didn't think it'd be appropriate to include it on the new site launch," Pete...
Bethesda is supposedly researching Boston for Fallout 4, an anonymous tipster has revealed. The spy said on Reddit: “The rumours are true, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven’t heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston. They also have a strong connection to MIT [Massachusetts Institute of...
The long and winding road
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will finally be updated to version 1.7 in North America this week. European players will have to wait an extra week, because, well, it’s customary on these shores, isn’t it? The patch implements a number of bug fixes, including “general memory and stability optimisations”. Unfortunately,...
Trip the light fantastic
Bethesda sure knows how to splash the cash on outrageous voice talent. The publisher has announced the cast-list for upcoming PS3 adventure Dishonored, and it’s practically bulging with Hollywood talent. Rocky Horror Picture Show legend Susan Sarandon will make her video game debut as Granny Rags, a mad old lady who’s...
Long wait ahead
Most developers have come to terms with the PlayStation 3’s unique architecture. Unlike at the start of the generation, it's now rare for a multiplatform title to perform significantly worse on Sony’s black box of tricks – but Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains a notable exception. The title launched in a...
Ooh, the choices...
Looking forward to Arkane Studios' upcoming action-adventure title, Dishonored? If so, you might want to think carefully about where you place your pre-order, as publisher Bethesda has assigned a selection of exclusive bonuses to major retailers in the UK. Amazon will be dishing out a cold serving of the Acrobatic Killer...
What's the problem?
Microsoft’s exclusivity deal with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up, which means that last month’s Dawnguard expansion can finally arrive on PlayStation 3. That is, if it’s actually in development. “We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise...
Variety is the spice of life, and this new Dishonored trailer does its very best to prove it. The gameplay short shows three different escape routes from the Boyle Mansion, each indistinguishable from the other. Will you decide to brazenly sprint out of the police infested residence, or try to sneak away unseen? Personally, we...
Variety is the spice of life
While most games can explain the extent of their gameplay in a 60 second trailer, Bethesda’s upcoming Dishonored is a teensy bit more ambitious. When you’re not deliberating the current value of whale oil with fellow aristocrats, you’ll need to decide how best to approach a wealth of murderous acts. These two...
Hell on Earth
Bethesda’s clearly not worried about getting gobbled up by Resident Evil 6 and Assassin’s Creed III, as it’s announced a 16th October release date for the DOOM 3: BFG Edition in North America. Those of you in Europe will get an additional three days to prepare for the apocalypse, with the HD re-master scheduled to release on 19th...
Early in the morning
BioShock Infinite may have been delayed into 2013, but it looks like the industry has found its natural replacement. Bethesda’s released the first trailer for Arkane Studios’ upcoming cyber-punk adventure Dishonored, and it looks... well, brutal. We recently got a chance to check out the first-person adventure in action, so...
We’re pretty sure the flow of epic announcements isn’t going to stop until next week now. Bethesda’s the latest publisher to join the pre-E3 party, releasing the first trailer for Skyrim’s upcoming Dawnguard expansion pack. There’s all manner of goodness in the trailer, including a monologue that’s certain to get your...
Alone in the dark
Here’s an announcement we never expected to find in our inbox this afternoon: Bethesda is rereleasing DOOM 3 for PlayStation 3. The expanded shooter – appropriately entitled the DOOM 3: BFG Edition – will include remastered versions of the original game, its expansion pack and seven new levels called “The Lost Mission”...
Skyrim connection confirmed
It’s too hot for classic inglenook fireplaces here in the UK this week, but that’s not stopped the people of Skyrim from collecting around the hearth. Bethesda, the publisher of the critically acclaimed RPG, has filed a trademark for “Hearth Fire”, the latest in string of registrations relating to the popular...
The next big addition to Bethesda’s enormous role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is kind of unexpected. The publisher announced on its official blog that it is adding mounted combat to the game, meaning you won’t even need to leave the comfort of your horse before ruthlessly slashing another dragon to death. There’s no...
Bethesda and Arkane Studios’ Dickensian adventure Dishonored will seek salvation on the 9th October, when the steampunk action title arrives on PlayStation 3 in North America. Europeans will have to wait a few extra days to begin their quest for honour, with the stealth game set to sneak overseas on 12th October. You can learn more about...
Content expansion on the way
In an unexpected statement that would rival even the stealthiest of Rockstar reveals, Bethesda has announced that the first expansion pack for the brilliant The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim will be called Dawnguard. More details are expected to be shared at this year’s E3, with a summer release date hinted. Bethesda's...
The lion, the witch and the wardrobe
Gamers are an intelligent bunch. When they’re not hunting for domain name registrations or poring over employee CVs, they’re picking apart game code to find references to future content. That’s exactly what one devoted Bethesda forum poster did with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s most recent patch — and...
Hide behind the sofa
Zwei, the next project by Resisdent Evil creator Shinji Mikami, will be a “pure” survival horror title, according to a statement released by publisher Bethesda this morning. The game – which was officially announced yesterday – intends to “push the limits of fear and exhilaration”. Mikami elaborated: A true...
Bethesda announced yesterday that the promising looking Prey 2 had been delayed beyond its original 2012 release window due to development on the title not progressing at a “satisfactory” rate. Turns out the game hasn’t been worked on since November 2011, due to developer Human Head Studios trying to negotiate better contract terms...
The good with the bad
Despite a spate of rumours to the contrary, Bethesda has confirmed that it has not cancelled Prey 2. Instead the game has been delayed beyond its 2012 release date due to the title not yet meeting the publisher’s “quality standards”. We're resisting the temptation to make a snarky comment about Skyrim's state on PS3. The...
A pleasant surprise
Who knew video game marketing was so simple? In the span of a short five minute CGI trailer, publisher Bethesda’s managed to shoot Arkane Studios’ upcoming steam punk action title Dishonored straight to the top of our wishlist. The game casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. After being framed for the murder...
There are numerous minor bug fixes in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s latest software update, but the most notable improvements come in the form of new kill cameras for projectile weapons and fresh animations for melee attacks. Anyone that’s spent more than 20 hours traipsing the city of Winterhold will know how repetitive the combat in...
Pray for Prey
It seems there’s no end to the bad news today. In addition to rumours surrounding the closure of Zipper Interactive and the unfortunate announcement of Yoshinori Ono’s ill health, PSFocus.nl is reporting that Bethesda is on the verge of cancelling anticipated sequel Prey 2.
The last we heard about Bethesda’s post-release plans for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the publisher indicated that we wouldn’t be seeing any additional content for a while. But a trademark filing posted by parent company Zenimax Media has indicated that the RPG’s first expansion might be closer than we expected. The...
Despite rumours to the contrary, DOOM 4 is not cancelled. Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, headed online to quell rumours spilling out of AllGamesBeta. He told Joystiq: DOOM 4 isn't cancelled. When we're ready to talk about it and show it off, we'll let everyone know. This is the second time DOOM 4’s...
With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim complete – and finally functioning on PS3 – developer Bethesda’s switched its attention to a new, next-gen project. A job listing on its recruitment website states that the developer "is looking for experienced programmers to work on cutting-edge technology for an unannounced game on...
Less quantity, greater quality
Bethesda’s aiming to rein in the amount of DLC it produces for PlayStation 3 mega RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with the hope of increasing each pack’s overall quality. Speaking to Kotaku, studio gaffer Todd Howard warned that fans should not expect the same rapid-fire DLC approach employed by the team's...
Stutter no more
The PlayStation 3 version of Bethesda’s brilliant-but-broken fantasy role-playing title, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, might finally transform into a functioning product later today. The developer’s confirmed that the game’s long awaited v1.4 patch – which promises to fix a host of bugs in addition to the game’s well...
It's been a long road, but Bethesda finally appears to be on the verge of correcting many of Skyrim's biggest troubles on PlayStation 3
In a detailed patch note, the publisher has promised that the upcoming version 1.4 will bring with it "long term play optimisations for memory and performance" on the PlayStation 3. In short: the game shouldn't stutter like an out of gas car once the..
When's the best time to play a Bethesda game? Our estimate is about 12 months after release, giving the publisher ample time to fix the initial product's inevitable bugs
It's said fixes that help to make Fallout: New Vegas' upcoming "Ultimate Edition" so, well, erm, ultimate. The game was borderline unplayable at launch. It's improved since. But the Ultimate Edition is not all about..
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should have got more love on this website than it did
We adored Bethesda's sprawling RPG, but couldn't wholly recommend it due to the slew of technical issues that the game experienced at launch. Sure, it's easy to overlook the odd frame-rate stutter or two — but Skyrim brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "technical inconsistencies". Despite the quality..
It's practically unprecedented for a game not published by EA or Activision to scoop the UK Christmas number one, but after a slew of heavy discounts and promising offers, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has broken tradition
The Bethesda published RPG toppled Just Dance 3, to finish up in first. That pushed Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 into third. The excellent FIFA 12 finished up in fourth, while..
There are ten million copies of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in the wilderness, Bethesda has confirmed
The game has netted the publisher $650 million in sales since its release last month. Hopefully the publisher can spend a bit of that money fixing up the partially broken PlayStation 3 version. We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world,..
How are you getting on with Skyrim? Assuming you've got past the horrendous technical issues -- that cause the game to lag and stutter on PlayStation 3 once your save-file reaches a certain size -- then we anticipate that you've just about managing to scratch the surface, right? Bethesda doesn't care if you've already got a quest list as long as your arm, as the publisher has started to share details about the game's forthcoming DLC
Game director Todd Howard told Joystiq that the expansion packs will be "meaty". But he clarified that, be..
"Where's your Skyrim review?" is a question we're getting asked quite a lot at the moment
The answer is that it's in limbo. Those of you that follow all the major PlayStation websites will already be aware of the game-breaking Skyrim bug, which essentially renders the PS3 version of the game unplayable. For those unaware, we'll provide a quick recap. Bethesda's latest fantasy adventure suffers from..
We have a rule: never read a novel with a map inside the front-cover
It's just not worth it. Thus if Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was a novel, we'd avoid it like the plague. Thankfully, it's a video game, and a gigantic one at that. Indeed, Skyrim is so big that it's easy to get lost. And that's where the helpful folks at GameBanshee come in. They've produced an enormous printable map of..
What has happened to Japan? Only last week Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 toppled Ni No Kuni in the region's sales charts, and now Famitsu has awarded the Western developed Skyrim a perfect score
It's the 17th game to be awarded top-marks from the publication, joining the likes of Ocarina Of Time and the original Soul Calibur.
Users on Bethesda's official forum are reporting that the promised patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has launched in parts of Europe

Still undecided about Bethesda's recent uber-pretty FPS, RAGE? No problem, the publisher's got your back
It's announced that it is to release a demo for the post-apocalyptic anger management sim on the PlayStation Network come December 6th. "The Ghost Clan, a cult of murderous fanatics, has infiltrated the waterworks beneath the town of Wellspring with plans to poison the water supply,"..
Terrified of your Skyrim save-file hopping over the dreaded 6MB limit? Bethesda's got your back -- but you're going to have to wait until the week after Thanksgiving first
(That's the week starting November 28th for everyone outside of North America.) According to Bethesda's Pete Hines a patch is in submission with Sony. No word on exactly what the patch contains, but we're expecting the publisher..
Bethesda employees will be donning their cosplay costumes and dancing around the office this evening, as the publisher has just announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has sold a whopping 3
5 million copies globally in just 48 hours. The company expects the game to rake in an eye-watering $450 million worldwide in retail sales. We are grateful for the fans response to Skyrim, said chuffed..
It wouldn't be a Bethesda game without a game-breaking bug hanging over it
PlayStation 3 owners of the publisher's mammoth role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, have voiced concern over the game's performance hindering save file bug. In a slew posts on Bethesda's forum, players have noted that once the game crosses a certain save file size threshold (around 6MB) its performance is..

The developer says that the update is in its final stages of testing and will release imminently on PS3. You can gorge on more specific details over at Bethesda's official website.
We're now ostensibly hours away from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
That means Bethesda's finally dropped us some good news — no more trailers. These things have been bombarding our inbox since this time last year. Seriously, how much Skyrim do people want? Oh that's right yeah, lots. Well we suppose this animation trailer should tide you over until release on Friday. Come on guys, hold it together..
If you're eager to get a taste of Bethesda's upcoming fantasy RPG behemoth, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the publisher's just let us know that it will be holding two midnight launch events in the UK
The GameStation branch in Birmingham will be joined by Oxford Street's GAME to celebrate the release, with goodies including CDs and strategy guides doled out to the first 100 fans in line. The..
Skyrim might be right around the corner, but Bethesda's not done promoting its last big open-world RPG just yet
Bethesda's announced that it is to re-release Fallout: New Vegas next February, bundling all of the game's content packs and patches into a single Ultimate Edition. That's a lot of Fallout. The bundle's due out February 7th in North America, and February 10th in Europe.
Behind the scenes development videos always fascinate us, but nothing intrigues us more than those discussing the audio
In a new Skyrim developer diary, Bethesda has blown the doors off the sound design process. The video accompanies a new podcast and blog post, outlining the process in a little more detail. You can find more information on Bethesda's official website.
Dragons are a bloody nuisance aren't they? You've just got your village how you'd like it and suddenly, boom
Gone in a jiffy. At least there will always be mute protagonists wearing spiffing armour to save the day. As is the case in this breath-taking live-action Skyrim trailer. Top-notch stuff.
Bethesda has emphatically denied reports that development on Doom 4 has been suspended, labelling the rumours as "complete bollocks"
Responding to a series of Twitter queries regarding the matter, marketing gaffer Pete Hines explained, "Games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed - indefinitely or otherwise." We suspect that's the end of that,..
Rumours are flying that Bethesda has temporarily postponed development of Doom 4 after the recently released RAGE didn't meet expectations. Apparently parent company Zenimax has "a serious lack of confidence in the project management at id," following the technical issues and luke-warm reviews surrounding RAGE. We thought the game was above average in our review, but struggled to..
Worried you're going to have to set aside hundreds of hours in order to complete The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? There's hope for you
Sort of. Bethesda's announced that Sam Bernstein, a member of the publisher's quality assurance team, has finished the game in over two hours, beating level designer Jeff Browne's time. Bernstein was previously recognised for competing against Bethesda employees in a..
Such is the furore surrounding Bethesda's upcoming colossal RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, that someone has took it upon themselves to leak the game
.. 's instruction manual. That's right, the entire manual has been uploaded onto Imgur. We've decided against re-producing it here for obvious reasons, but we will include a friendly link for you. The manual includes a variety of morsels, including..

Bethesda's dropped us a line to remind you that the final two Fallout: New Vegas DLC packs are due out this week on the PlayStation Store
That's today in North America, and tomorrow in Europe. Courier's Stash (£1.49 / $2.99) opens up access to four content bundles previously available only through pre-orders. The Caravan Pack, Classic Pack, Mercenary Pack and Tribal Pack each offer unique weapons,..
Bethesda's announced the cast list for its highly anticipated fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The game features the voice of Christopher Plummer (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as a powerful Greybeard elder named Arngeir. Plummer's joined by Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist) as Esburn and Joan Allen (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Delphine, "one of the last remaining members of the Blades an..
The PlayStation 3 version of RAGE will come packed up on a single Blu-ray disc (unlike the XBOX 360's enormous three-disc solution) and will require an 8GB install, id Software's creative director Tim Willits told Eurogamer
"Sony was great," Willits praised. "Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don't allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off. What we were able to..
Think you can fit in upwards of 100 hours of gaming before Skyrim launches later in the year? The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition might fit the bill
The special package — which includes the game, DLC packs, two world maps and a 'Making Of' documentary — is due out on PS3 this week in Europe. It'll run you a reasonable £19.99. Still no trophies, mind.
It's fitting that a game that will take you about 100 hours to play through should get a trailer of similarly silly length
Bethesda's released a brand new gameplay blow-out for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it's a mere 20-minutes in length. The footage is narrated by Todd Howard and is based on the same stretch of gameplay that the publisher showed at E3 earlier in the year. Catch all three..
An exclusive should stay an exclusive as far as we're concerned
Microsoft disagrees. In a move that's becoming all too familiar, the XBOX 360 platform holder has signed up for timed exclusivity on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's first two DLC packs. The content will be available "exclusively" on Microsoft's platform for a period of 30 days, before appearing on PlayStation Network..
Bethesda's announced that the fourth expansion of Fallout: New Vegas, the Lonesome Road, will be available from the PlayStation Network on September 20th
The single-player expansion will run you $9.99. The expansion won't mark the end of Fallout: New Vegas DLC however. It will be followed by two additional slices of content, Couriers Stash and Gun...
Bethesda and Arkane's new intuitive stealth-action title Dishonored becomes a little less shrouded in mystery
The upcoming title's official site has been updated with an official plot and some spicy new screens featuring futuristic cars and, uh, mustachioed assailants. Dishonored is under development at Arkane studios under the watchful eye of Harvey Smith of Deus Ex fame. The title is still on..
Eurogamer has a useful tidbit regarding in-world relationships in Bethesda's upcoming open-world RPG, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Deriving information from Bethesda marketing exec Peter Hines, Bethesda has seemingly included the option to befriend and marry non-player characters of either gender, forming lasting benefits for the player to earn over the game. Companion NPC's might ask a favor of you..
The collector's pack for id Software's upcoming RAGE will be exclusive to GAME and GameStation, Bethesda has announced

Bethesda's delayed the latest DLC pack for Fallout: New Vegas, citing problems "beyond the publisher's control"
The company announced a trio of content packs way back in May. Both "Honest Hearts" and the brilliant "Old World Blues" (which we reviewed last week) arrived on time, but "Lonesome Road" has clearly missed its...
Bethesda's announced the collector's edition for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The classy package includes a 200 page hard-back artbook, a making-of DVD and a statue of a dragon. You'll get the game too, obviously. It's classy, high-quality stuff for sure. The "extremely limited" package will retail for £129.99 / $149.99. We suppose if you're a massive Elder Scrolls fan, you'll be all over..
Brink's first dose of downloadable content, "Agents Of Change", will release on the PlayStation Network from next week
That's August 4th if you want to mark your calendars. Those who are prompt enough to download the content within its first two weeks on sale will get the upgrade free of charge. Agents Of Change includes two new environments, five new player abilities, two new outfits and two new..
Here's a mouthful for you to get your lips around: first-person stealth action adventure game
That's the pitch for Bethesda and Arkane Studios' latest project: Dishonored. The game's featured on the cover of this month's GameInformer magazine, with former Deus Ex designer Harvey Smith leading creative duties. At Arkane we have a passion for creating deep, immersive game experiences, said Arkane..
Bethesda's announced the first batch of Brink DLC: Agents Of Charge
It's set to go live in early July on PlayStation 3, and will be available for free for two weeks after launch. The content will include two new environments, five new player abilities, two new outfits and two new weapon attachments. Strangely, we can see ourselves jumping back into...
Bethesda's confirmed that the third DLC pack for Fallout: New Vegas will launch on July 19th
The pack is entitled "Old World Blues". A new patch will launch prior to the content to bring bring improvements to performance and stability in major areas". They're still fixing Fallout: New Vegas then, eh? The content puts you in the...
Hunted: The Demon's Forge looks decent enough: a Gears Of War-esque co-operative adventure set in a fantasy world
We're just not sure the audio in the game's launch trailer necessarily does the product justice. Indeed, the horrible cover of The Turtles' "Happy Together" and questionable voice acting are not doing anything for us. Thankfully the actual gameplay looks relatively neat. One..
Bethesda's just let us know that all preorders for id's upcoming first-person-shooter-meets-car-combat affair, RAGE, will be upgraded to the "Anarchy Edition" in the UK
The Anarchy Edition was announced during Bethesda's pre-E3 showcase last month and includes a bunch of in-game goodies. There's a double barrel shotgun, some elite armour, a pair of knuckle dusters and an exclusive buggy livery..
Brink has knocked Zumba Fitness [urgh - Ed] off the top of the UK sales charts this week, scoring a domestic top-spot for developer Splash Damage
The brilliant LEGO Pirates Of The Caribbean made it a one-two for new releases, finishing up in second. Of course, Zumba Fitness was still around to keep Mums happy, finishing up in third just ahead of Portal 2 and Call Of Duty: Black Ops. The other new..
If you thought Randy Pitchford was going to be the only developer to stand behind Sony over the PlayStation Network data breach then you were mistaken
Despite being adversely affected by the PSN outage, Brink developer Splash Damage has admitted feeling "sympathetic" towards Sony's predicament. "Of course for us it is frustrating to...
The most disheartening trend we've started to notice on press-releases this week is the blank nod of no-information pertaining to PSN release dates
The second set of Fallout: New Vegas DLC — entitled Honest Hearts — is due out on the XBOX 360 and PC on May 17th. On PS3? Well, "as soon as possible". You can almost feel the collective sigh from publishers as you read these press..
Let's be honest, Brink is a game all about online multiplayer
Thus it's unfortunate that the game should be releasing at a time when the PlayStation Network is still down . However, in a statement to GiantBomb, a Bethesda spokesperson said there's still plenty for PlayStation 3 fans to enjoy in Brink while the PSN is offline. "Fortunately,...
Brink looks awesome, and it's out this week
Unfortunately the biggest kicker for the game's launch is that the PlayStation Network is still not online yet. That creates a big problem because Brink is very much supposed to be played online. Grrr. It's unfortunate timing for the team at Splash Damage. We can only hope that people choose to pick up the game in good faith. After all, the PSN will be..
Brink launches on PlayStation 3 next week, and Bethesda's been kind enough to send us some stats regarding the game
Aside from the dead boring stuff like there being 60 minutes of music and 26,000 lines of dialogue, Bethesda has also decided to let us know that there are a total of 102,247,681,536,000,000 unique character possibilities. We thought you should know too.
Given that Brink is an ambitious multiplayer-centric first-person shooter with a lot of quirky features, we think it was a shrewd decision for Bethesda to employ a nice-mannered British lady to discuss the game's unique perspective of the battlefield
She can talk about our "commarrrrnd post" all she likes. Right, guys?! Right?! You can check out the rest of Brink's "Get SMART"..
Bethesda's popped us over a new gameplay trailer for id's upcoming first-person shooter RAGE
We haven't been convinced by the title's combination of first-person shooting and vehicular combat in the past, but it's slowly starting to win us over. There are not enough car combat games. Our initial distaste for RAGE's vehicular combat stemmed from the assumption that it would amount to nothing more..
Splash Damage understands
After years of moody, colourless shooters, we've become nostalgic for SEGA's famous Blue Skies. The team behind Brink feel exactly the same way, paving the way to one of the most colourful first-person shooters in years. It is time to put colours back in first person shooters, Splash Damage art boss Oliver Leonardi told IGN. Of course, by the time you finish making..
Bethesda's got juicy with details on three new sets of Fallout: New Vegas DLC due for release starting May 17th -- assuming the PSN is back online
The publisher's kicking things off with Honest Hearts, which takes place in the Zion National Park in Utah. Sent on an exhibition to the caravan resort, you'll quickly find yourself embroiled in a war between tribes. Additional DLC packs, Old World Blues..
Did any recognisable outlet give Fallout: New Vegas their game of the year award? Hmm
Whatever, Amazon UK is listing a Game Of The Year edition of the Obsidian developed RPG. Well, it was, until the listing got removed. Unfortunately, source VG247 forgot to take a screen capture. But we trust 'em. Naturally you can assume that the game of the year re-release will include a manner of DLC nuggets..
Bethesda's finally realised that the release of Rockstar's L
A. Noire</a> might put a dent in the sales of their ambitious first-person shooter, Brink. The publisher's responded by moving the game's release date forward a week to May 10th and May 13th in North America and Europe respectively. Smart move Bethesda. Plus, it's nice to see release dates move forwards instead of backwards for a..
We're not entirely sure why Brink is flying under the radar so badly
It seems to have all the core elements people want: deep but accessible competitive multiplayer, tons of unlocks, vibrant and unique art-style, loads of weapons, great online integration. On paper it looks like the perfect video game. In fact, we're convinced Splash Damage is going to knock this one out of the park, regardless of..
Any trailer -- be it for a movie or video game -- is more exciting when the sound engineers go crazy with their sub-woofers
Don't you just love those big, bassy, slow-motion muffles they do for practically every action trailer these days? Well even if you don't, Bethesda do. This Brink trailer is littered with low-frequency wobble. What's more, the game actually looks pretty amazing.
Bethesda has just announced that Prey 2 is in development at Human Head Studios, the developers of the original Prey game
It will utilise id Tech's game engine and will release in 2012. Bethesda revealed precious little other details about the game, other than the news that its in development for PlayStation 3. Apparently the US edition of Official PlayStation Magazine will receive carry more..
We're going to catch a lot of flak for offering an opinion on Bethesda's latest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim trailer, but we're not all that bothered
As anticipated, the trailer does absolutely nothing to excite us. There are dragons. Woo-hoo, we can hardly contain ourselves. It's more or less what we expected, fantasy games are never likely to appeal to us and that's ok — we'll still continue to post..
To be precise, we'll get our first in-game glimpse of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in approximately 19 hours, 54 minutes and 48 seconds
That's at the time of writing anyway. How do we know? Bethesda's whacked up a handy little countdown clock on their website to help you keep track. 19 hours, 53 minutes and 39 seconds now by the way. Gah. To be perfectly open and honest with you guys, we're not all..
On one hand, Hunted: The Demon's Forge is a presentable idea: a classic fantasy title designed with Gears Of War in mind
On the other hand, it's a terrible idea: a classic fantasy title designed with Gears Of War in mind. We like the cover-based shooters, but we're kinda bored of the Tolkien cliches. Could go either way this one. Check the trailer after the jump.
Listen to the games media and you'll hear one converging opinion: "People are done with playing actual games on the go and would rather fiddle about with birds on their iPhone
