Game developers Bethesda Studios presented a mind-blowing pre-E3 showcase on Sunday night.
Of course the main attraction was a hefty 15 minutes of gameply from their much anticipated fourth Fallout game which looks nothing short of glorious. During the presentation, which included previews of Doom and The Elder Scrolls Online, some truly creative additions to the Fallout franchise were officialy unveiled.
One of the stand-out moments included the reveal of an actual working Pitt Boy device, fetured throughout the game, which you can use in conjection with your smartphone. The working Pitt Boys will only be available to customers who buy the collector’s edition of the game.
The last shock for fans was the release dateof November 10th…which can’t come quick enough.
Game developers Bethesda have finally confirmed that there will now be a fourth Fallout game and during their official announcement of their new game they went a step further and delivered a gloriously looking launch trailer.
It’s been almost seven years since the last Fallout game and fans have been foaming at the mouth for news on a follow-up. As of yet very little is known about the forthcoming addition to the game’s franchise except of course it will be set approximately 200 years after a war over resources that ended in a nuclear holocaust in 2077. The setting is a post-apocalyptic retro-future, covering a region that includes Boston, Massachusetts and other parts of New England known as the Commonwealth.
Bad news for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners as Bethesda have confirmed that Fallout 4 will not be coming to those platforms upon release or for the foreseeable future.
Here’s the second official trailer for the Adam Sandler led sci-fi comedy Pixels set for release on July 24th.
The plot for the film rattles along like so:
In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults, including Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. President William Cooper (Kevin James) calls upon his best friend since childhood, former 1980s arcade champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to combat the video game characters, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers to defeat the aliens with various technology similar to those used in games.
I’m not a fan of Sandler or James personally, or their movies, but the one saving grace for this film is that it’s directed by Chris Columbus, a man previously responsible for Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire and two Harry Potter movies. We live in hope.
I doubt there’s anything in this world funnier than an angry Scotsman losing his shit playing a video game. The video above uploaded by YouTuber Byze features a caddy race across a bridge infested with giant windmills.
Let the rage ensue.
Nintendo unveiled exactly what their new Zelda game would look like on the Wii U at the Game Awards this week and it was nothing short of amazing.
Although the game looks glorious and the world for you to explore dense and grand in scale, the best bit of this demo video is the entirely scripted interactions between Zelda lead producer Eiji Aonuma and original Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
Thanks to Rockstar changing the physics of mountain bikes in their game Grand Theft Auto V, this guy managed to glide right through the whole of Los Santos on his cycle.
