  • Fallout 4 Has The Biggest Script Of Any Bethesda Game Ever Made fallout 4Bethesda announced on their Twitter account today that they’d recently completed recording the voice tracks for Fallout 4. Not only is the amount of dialogue in the game immense, but according to them, it’s of a larger size than both Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Combined.
    Just how much is that, exactly? 111,000 lines of dialogue, all of it audio. It was so much that the recording process took several years. Of course, Fallout 4 has several features that would require a larger amount of dialogue to be realized. The character you control will speak, and since you can ...
  • Bethesda Teases Fallout Edition Of Monopoly Today the official Fallout Twitter account, run by developer Bethesda, posted this picture:

    “When #Fallout4 monopolizes family time, you can always bust this out (coming soon!)” they said.
    The big surprise here is not that there’s going to be a Fallout-themed Monopoly board, but that there wasn’t one already. You would know this by one visit to the hobby store, but every single intellectual property with even a slight cult following has its own themed special edition of Monopoly based around it. There’s apparently a large section of collectors who look for these, and Hasbro is only too happy to feed their ...

  • Fallout 4 Action Figure On The Way fallout 4There’s more with the Fallout 4 brand coming than just a game. Developer Bethesda shared these photos today of a prototype for a Fallout 4 collectible statue depicting the Power Suit.

    It won’t be sold like this. Since it’s just a prototype, details like color haven’t been added yet. We don’t know the exact pricing or availability for the Power Suit figure either, nor a release date. The figure is still early in development. When we know more about the Fallout 4 Power Suit figure, we’ll report on it.
    The game itself is coming out November 10 for Playstation 4, XBox ...

  • Nintendo Announces Special Edition Of Xenoblade Chronicles X Over the weekend Nintendo announced a sleek, sexy Special Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles X would be coming to North America. The announcement was made during Pax Prime.
    Just look what you get in addition to the game: a 100-page artbook, a matted art card featuring an illustration from artist Takashi Kojo, and the digital soundtrack on a stylized USB drive that looks like it came out of the game. It all fits inside that fancy box, suitable for any collector’s shelf.

  • The Great Final Fantasy XV Infodump, Part Two final fantasy xvNow more about Prince Noctis’ car, the Regalia. One of the main goals of the game creators was to make sure players enjoy driving the car around, because after all, they’ll be doing it a lot. There are several points of view available: you can drive the Regalia in third person, with the view coming from the back of the car, or you can cruise around in first-person using the view of anybody currently in the car. If you don’t feel like driving at all, you don’t have to: you can set the controls to “Auto” and just let it ...
  • The Great Final Fantasy XV Infodump, Part One final fantasy xvLast weekend during Pax Prime, Square-Enix dropped a boatload of Final Fantasy XV information so large, we can’t contain it in one newspost.
    Prince Noctis’ friends and travelling buddies are named Ignis, Prompto, and Gladiolus. You’ll get to know them through performing optional sidequests with them. You’ll want to do them, seeing as the more time you spend with each of these characters, the stronger their attacks will be when they battle with you. The car is intended to be another character in the game, though it won’t speak or anything — it’s just a car.
    Square revealed several locations in the ...
