But what could they be?
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
" It's an endorsement we're not sure we agree with. Clearly there are lots of people happy enough with their smartphone gaming applications, but they also belong to the same demographic that device's like the NGP don't..
Great little exclusive Microsoft
The first Fallout: New Vegas DLC, "Dead Money" (which hit the XBOX 360 before Christmas), is coming to the PlayStation 3 on February 22nd. Furthermore, Bethesda's confirmed that three more New Vegas DLC packs will release in the coming months, simultaneously on PS3, 360 and PC. What was the point Microsoft?...
May 20th will either be one of the best days for new video game releases, or worst depending on your wallet's flexibility
Bethesda's slapped a May 20th release date (May 17th in North America) on ambitious multiplayer shooter Brink. Unfortunately, that's the same day as Rockstar's L.A. Noire. Decisions, decisions. The publisher's also put a June 3rd release date on Hunted: The Demon's Forge. Rage..
Like all the best games, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has a big emphasis on walls
The memorable stone slab featured in the game's debut teaser trailer holds a number of secrets about the title's lore. There are several events depicted on the wall, all of which surround a dragon named Aludin. The dragon once terrorized the gameworld of Tamriel, and is now out to seal the fate of Skyrim. Opening the..
Well that was a surprise
Bethesda's Todd Howard dropped by Spike TV's VGA awards show last night to announce Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game will launch on November 11th, 2011. No platforms have been confirmed, but expect it to release on PlayStation 3. According to Howard, the game's been in development for two years. The game's debut trailer is after the jump.
Zenimax -- the parent company of Bethesda Softworks -- has just confirmed that it's bought up Tango Gameworks, and with it Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami
Its refreshing to find a publisher who understands, trusts, and supports the development of blockbuster games and works to make it a collaborative effort, said Mikami. The library of AAA franchise titles Zenimax owns speaks for..
Fallout: New Vegas has been fixed
Hallelujah. A new patch for the game — the same as the one released for Steam over the weekend — has now been rolled out onto the PlayStation 3 version of the game. Apparently the update includes "over 200 fixes". We booted up our copy of the game to check and noticed an NPC half-stuck in the ground... Still a way to go then, eh?
Remember folks, when you read "exclusive DLC" what it really means is "DLC that we're holding back on other platforms due to contracts and stuff"
Still, those months can be concerning to some, so we hope you're not too excited about Fallout: New Vegas. Though you'll be familiar with Bethesda's timed-exclusive DLC practices, as this exact same thing happened with Fallout 3. Yup, the "first..
Bethesda's finally revealed a few tiny details about their next project
It's been two years since we last heard anything from the team, but executive producer Todd Howard had some reassuring words for fans at QuakeCon. He told Eurogamer that the game's "pretty far along" and that 90 people are currently working on it. Howard reckons the stretch between the game's announcement and its..
Bethesda's becoming quite the publishing power-house, as this story evidences
For those of you pre-ordering next year's "one-to-watch" new shooter IP Brink, you'll get access to an additional set of equipment from two big titles in the publisher's growing roster: Doom or Fallout. The Doom pack's exclusive to GameStop and includes armour, guns, hats and a tattoo based on id's classic..
RAGE may look like a bland reskin of Gearbox's Borderlands, but boy does it look like a pretty one
During QuakeCon last night, id committed to a September release date for the post-apocalyptic shooter. The game will hit North America on September 13th, 2011. Europe will have an extra two day wait, as it'll hit store shelves September 15th there. RAGE has been a long time coming, but we suppose when..
Bethesda's Pete Hines has confirmed at QuakeCon that its parent company, Zenimax, has acquired Bioshock 2 level designers Arkane Studios
The French-based studio was said to be experiencing some "financial challenges" recently, which have presumably disappeared now thanks to this acquisition. Apparently the studio's currently working on an "unannounced title". Bethesda's..
We like a lot of what we've seen of Splash Damage's Brink, but the last thing we were expecting was an interesting narrative behind the first-person shooter
Apparently, we were very wrong to assume. It seems like the studio have gone some way towards setting up an interesting fiction. There's a utopia, floating city - the Ark. But it's over populated. Instead of housing the 5,000 people it's..
While its safe to assume that the characters in Fallout: New Vegas will be about as animated as a desert rock, at least there's a bunch of "celebrity" talent being brought in to voice them
That might give the lifeless lumps of digital meat some character, right? (Sorry, we really did like Fallout 3 but, let's not pretend it didn't have issues.) A report from USA Today lists a few names linked to..
Bethesda's whacked up some new screenshots from Fallout: New Vegas
It continues to look like a Fallout game. They are pretty-ish. Well, pretty as far as Fallout games go anyway. Which isn't very pretty. We know people like to rag on us for thinking Fallout games don't look very good, but they don't. And let's be honest — miles of desert is not really what you play Fallout for is it? It's the..
Bethesda's just dropped the October-bomb for Obsidian's upcoming entry in the Fallout franchise, Fallout: New Vegas
The game will launch on October 22nd here in Europe, with the US getting it a few days earlier on October 19th. We posted a new trailer for the game over the weekend, which you can check out through here. Given Fallout's pedigree, we expect New Vegas will make a big impact at E3 this..
Ultra close-up introduction? Check
Fifties doo-wop music? Check. Ugly graphics and janky animations? Check. Yup, that's right - Fallout's back, and this time it's headed to Vegas, New Vegas to be precise. This new trailer includes colour, gambling and all the other trademark features you'd expect from a Fallout game. Some people will be totally stoked.
"Fallout: New Vegas," declares IGN's Eric Brudvig, "It's just like Fallout 3
" We sit back, shut off the sound and watch. Yup, it's exactly the same as Fallout 3. That's not a bad thing though, right? Fallout 3 was pretty damn good. But it was also janky, broken and ugly. Oh well, eh? At least Eric Brudvig clarifies by stating, "It's just like Fallout 3 only totally new." Something..
Bethesda fans - hold onto your hats
If Internet rumours are to be believed, the popular action-RPG studio are readying an announcement of enormous magnitude for this coming E3. How does Elder Scrolls V catch you? The rumour's all a bit higgledy-piggledy - it's true source runs back to Famitsu magazine where they've confirmed that publishers such as Konami, Ubisoft and Bethesda all have surprises..
This Fallout: New Vegas boxart is not drab in the sense that it is boring - it's relatively stylish and eye-catching in fact
It's just drab in so much as it sums up what you're likely find within the game. Dark, rough, empty environments laced with annoyingly animated creatures. We liked Fallout 3 but, c'mon, it had more than its fair share of issues didn't it? One being that it was just boring in..
How would you like some poker chips and playing cards with your copy of Fallout: New Vegas? Sure, ok
What if the playing cards were illustrated with characters and factions from in the game. Sure. How about a hardcover graphic novel written by the game's creative director and published by Dark Horse Comics? Sold! Throw in a "Making Of" DVD and that just about sums up the collector's pack..
Bethesda and Splash Damage's quirky first-person shooter Brink continues to look more stylish each time we see it
This time around Kotaku's got a bunch of new screens. The game's still on track to release this Holiday. It could end up being pretty big this one folks, so stay tuned.
We know we're going to get screamed at for this but, Fallout 3 is not a good looking game
And we're going to assume that Fallout: New Vegas is going to look like ass too. Particularly after seeing this first batch of screenshots from CVG. Will the game rock? Absolutely. Does it look like the most unappealing game ever based on its screenshots? Absolutely.
AGB have a few scans from Fallout: New Vegas in the latest issue of PC Gamer
Unsurprisingly they look rather a lot like Fallout. We wished there was perhaps something more to get excited about here, but Fallout's never been the strongest game visually and the scans aren't much to crow home about. Indeed, Fallout is all about the setting, and we're sure we'll be hearing more about the presumably..
Bethesda's just confirmed to us that Fallout: New Vegas will hit the Playstation 3 this Autumn
There's not much on the actual game itself yet, but it has been confirmed that the Obsidian developed spin off will take all the action, humor, and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series, and raise the stakes. There's a new trailer after the jump, and magazine blow-outs are promised..
A mysterious post on the GameSpot forums claims to have a host of leaked information about Bethesda's upcoming Fallout: New Vegas
Of course, comment from the publisher is of the "no comment" variety, but that doesn't stop these details looking any more solid. Still the forum "leak" goes on a friend-of-a-friend basis, so take it as you will. According to the details posted..
There's one thing you can ensure if you have Killzone 2's producer working on your game: it's going to look sensational
And Brink looks unreal right now. The gameplay videos dropped after the jump show a hyper-stylised universe with some super-tight shooting. Gameplay-wise, the demo looks fairly standard fare, but that art-style is wonderful. With Brink still about a year off, you should probably..
We're not huge multiplayer gamers
We enjoy it, but we're not the type of people who can make a game's multiplayer mode last a year or two. That's just, meh. Still, there are a lot of gamers out there that don't even touch a multiplayer mode. And those are the type of people Splash Damage want to convert with their innovative FPS Brink."It's our goal from the outset to incidentally teach people..
We've been very jealous today
While reading our surprisingly buoyant journo colleagues Tweets from sunny ol' London, we've been sat here in the gloomy Midlands typing stuff. Still, DJ Hero did come in the post. Score. Over in London though, a real party has kicked off as Fallout 3 won the annual Golden Joysticks "Ultimate Game Of The Year". Over 1.2 million votes were cast in the awards,..
Fallout 3 DLC will finally hit the Playstation 3 on September 24th
That will see the launch of the Broken Steel pack on the PSN. Content will follow thick and fast with The Pitt and Operation Anchorage on October 1st and finally; Mothership Zeta and Point Lookout on October 8th. All of the DLC will support trophies. October 13th will also see the...
If Wet takes its core mechanics and continues to make them interesting over time, the Grindhouse setting will do more than enough to make this game a memorable arcade shooter
The best thing about Wet is that it knows exactly what it is. It's not trying to redefine arcade shooters, but at the same time it's blissfully aware it needs to change things up a little in order to be interesting. What you..
Elder Scrolls games are a bit of a favourite for most people
Bethesda though, aren't too interested in delivering any more. But Bethesda's Todd Howard spoke about his companies future with the franchise, stating there are "no plans" for a future release of the Elder Scrolls franchise. Of course a "no plans" statement does not...
Thank goodness for that
Bethesda said Wet would come in 2009 and it is. September 15th 2009 to be precise for our American readers. The Tarantino inspired hack-and-slash-style-on-rails-with-a-Grindhouse-feel-esque game has earned a fair amount of praise over the past few months. Here's hoping it lives up to the hype.
We sat quietly through the whole of June waiting for Fallout 3's DLC
It never came. So we sat waiting longer. We're now midway through July and despite promises that the DLC is nearly finished, Bethesda have confirmed it'll arrive "by the end of September". The reason for the delay is because Bethesda want to change the order the packs are...
We sat waiting patiently for the first of the PS3 Fallout 3 DLC today
It never came. We got quite upset about it and trundled away from our PS3 back to the tennis. Alas, Bethesda predicted people must have been waiting and have quelled some fears, claiming Operation Anchorage is nearly ready for PS3 release. Unfortunately a date was not given.
We're going to be open right now and admit that aside from this trailer we don't have a clue what Brink is all about
We're guessing the gunshots mean there will be shooting. We're guessing from the monologue that it's going to be some kind of sci-fi game. Other than that, all we have is a release date, Spring 2010. Absolutely no doubt E3 2009 will tell us more.
Just recently, we've been sitting around mulling over the fact that we'll probably never get to experience the Fallout 3 DLC
The DLC, which was in some kind of exclusivity deal with Microsoft, was rumoured destined to never be released on Playstation 3 - until Bethesda revealed otherwise today. Starting from late June PS3 owners will be given access...
Upcoming multi-weapon action title Wet was thought to be lost as a part of the Vivendi uber-cull
Thankfully Bethesda were around to pick up the project which will hit the PS3 and 360 this Fall. The game also features the lush vocal tones of Miss. Eliza Dushku as protagonist Rubi Malone.
Fallout: New Vegas has just been announced at a Bethesda press conference in our home-land, England
The game will be developed in collaboration with Obsidian and will be coming to the Playstation 3 alongside other platforms."It is not a sequel to Fallout 3," Bethesda's Pete Hines said. "It's simply another Fallout game in that universe."</blockquote> Hines added that this..
