First Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Footage is Released By Bethesda, Is Exactly What We Expected

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..

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..

We're Not Sure What To Make Of This Hunted: The Demon's Forge Trailer

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.

NGP Could Be The Last Dedicated Gaming Handheld Of Its Kind According To id Software's John Carmack

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..

Bethesda's Brink Dated For May 20th In Europe

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..

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Has A Big Emphasis On Walls

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..

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?

News: First Fallout: New Vegas DLC XBOX 360 Exclusive (Presumably For A Couple O' Months)

First Fallout: New Vegas DLC XBOX 360 Exclusive (Presumably For A Couple O' Months)

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..

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.

The Doom pack's exclusive to GameStop and includes armour, guns, hats and a tattoo based on id's classic..

id's Gorgeous RAGE Confirmed For September 2011

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..

News: So, Who Thought Brink Would Actually Have An Interesting Story?

So, Who Thought Brink Would Actually Have An Interesting Story?

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..

There Are People Lending Their Voices For Fallout: New Vegas

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..

Hey Look, Here Are Some More Screenshots Of Fallout: New Vegas

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..
