  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Again The Witcher 3The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed once again.
    The ambitious open-world RPG’s release date has been moved from Feb. 24 to May 19, 2015. This is the second setback for Geralt’s third adventure, which was originally supposed to hit in May, 2014.
    CD Projekt Red released and open letter to fans explaining and apologizing for the decision:
    Dear Gamers,
    Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.
    The sheer size ...
  • New Trailer and Second Playable Character for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt The Witcher 3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtEO2xZ7BzQ
    At last week’s Game Awards, CD Projekt RED revealed a brand new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and hinted that one of the characters in the trailer would be playable in addition to Geralt.
    Our money is on the white-haired girl, who is apparently Ciri, the one Geralt mentions having elder blood in her veins. She seems to have the most developed combat moves and costume. It could be Geralt’s long-time ebony-haired squeeze Yennefer, as well, or the bro Geralt is broing it up with at the end. I hope it’s not the bro, he seems like a clone ...
  • Don’t Look For Fallout 4 News at Tonight’s Game Awards Fallout 3Hoping for some Fallout 4 news at tonight’s The Game Awards (formerly known as the VGAs)? Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s got a Brahmin’s chance in Deathclaw nest of happening.
    Bethesda spokesman Pete Hines crushed our hopes and dreams in a recent tweet:

    I'm getting asked a lot about this week and what we're doing. Going to VGX to support MachineGames. That's it. Not showing anything.
    — Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) December 3, 2014

    MachineGames makes Wolfenstein: The New Order. It’s kind of like Skyrim, with guns, but then take out the Skyrim.
    The awards start tonight at 9 p.m. ET. They aren’t televised ...

  • Zenimax Says It Will Have News About ESO on Consoles Next Year Working for this site, I check for Elder Scrolls Online news every day. And just about every day, I see one or more sites promoting fake release dates for ESO on consoles. It’s like a cottage industry of lies.
    Well, here we finally have some real news. ESO won’t be out this year on consoles. ZeniMax doesn’t even plan to make more major announcements about it until 2015. Yes, that is way past the six months they promised they’d have to wait after the PS4 and Xbox One versions missed their June launch date.
    This official announcement comes from Matt Firor’s The ...
  • Watch a Group Beat ESO’s Toughest Encounter Dragonstar Arenahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzMabKVMC1w
    This Veteran Dragonstar Arena run from Deltia of Deltia’s Gaming shows his group finishing off what he ranks as the hardest four-player encounter in the game.
    Deltia’s tank gets the final kill of the encounter. He’s muted the audio with music because he admits he swore for a solid three minutes during the tough fight.
    What do you think? Is their a harder challenge for a four-player group? What’s the toughest challenge in the game overall? Let us know in our forum.
  • Marvel and Star Wars Characters Could End Up in Kingdom Hearts III One silver lining to the House of Mouse buying up everything in sight is that at least it’s easier for some of our dream mashups to happen.
    We’ve seen Marvel characters interacting with Disney characters in Disney Infinity, and now Tai Yasue, co-director and game designer of Kingdom Hearts 3, has hinted Disney’s Star Wars, Marvel and general cartoon lines might collide with Square Enix characters in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts sequel.
    “They’re all under consideration,” he told Kotaku. “Nothing’s off-limits, we’re considering all of the worlds. There are so many wonderful concepts. We’re happy about that, but at the same ...
  • Dragons and Mechs Mingle in New Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF1IUmP3534
    I think this new trailer for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is meant to try to explain all of the factions and military actions that serve as the backstory for the game.
    I say I think, because I came away from it even more confused. There’s some dictator guy that dresses like M. Bison and rants about new world orders. And he’s, I’m going to day, bad? Maybe?
    But it’s a beautiful confusion, as it gives us a look at a game world where mechs and cold war propaganda and dragons comingle like it ain’t no thang. And although the ...
  • Dark Souls II Coming to PS4 and Xbox One With Scholar of the First Sin Edition https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6OvKFwIza8
    From Software has released a new trailer for an upcoming Dark Souls II upgraded edition that will either have you crying tears of bitter frustration or telling the game “Thank you, sir. May I have another?,” depending on your approach to tough RPG punishment.
    The new version, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, will be out April 7 for PS4 and Xbox One and DirectX11 capable PCs. It will bring you the original game plus its three DLC packs Crown Of The Sunken King, Crown Of The Old Iron King, and Crown Of The Ivory King; new content specifically ...
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Pokes Fun at Itself in Parody Image Without spoiling anything beyond the intro, Dragon Age: Inquisiton is about closing a big hole in the sky. The Avengers was, at the end, about closing a big hole in the sky.
    That resemblance was not lost on BioWare and EA, which slyly referenced the final post-credits scene of The Avengers in this funny new image.

    “All great teams of heroes need time to unwind after closing a giant hole in the sky,” the official account tweeted.
    Do you think the serve shawarma there?

  • ZeniMax Spruces Up ESO With New Patch TESO Interior LightingThe Elder Scrolls Online has a new incremental patch out now. For such a big game, however, even an incremental patch is a monster.
    It shouldn’t, however, be a 12 GB monster. There was a bug that pushed it out in that large size. Instructions for dealing with that are here.
    The patch primarily fixes quests, adjusts monsters and makes audio improvements. The full patch notes are below.
    OVERVIEW
    The Elder Scrolls Online v1.5.6 is an incremental patch that has addressed issues in Cyrodiil and a number of quests. We have also adjusted the health and power of monsters in dungeons scaled to at ...
