  • The Fallout 4 Survival Guide Will Release Alongside The Game The Fallout 4 Survival Guide Will Release Alongside The GameFallout 4 is going to be a massive game, and it deserves a special kind of guide.
    Hence the Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide, written as if it came out of the Fallout world. It’s 400 pages long and includes detailed instructions on living, working, crafting and surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with only a dog for company.
    Yes, this is technically a strategy guide, a publishing niche you would think had become obsolete, but if that’s what you do indeed think, you haven’t been to the “game” shelf at Barnes and Noble lately. Strategy guides have reinvented themselves and now target a ...
  • The Witcher 3’s Final DLC Is A New Game Plus Mode The Witcher 3's Final DLC Is A New Game Plus ModeCD Projekt Red promised fans of its most recent release, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, that the game would have 16 separate free DLC downloads eventually. They’re very close to fulfilling that promise as they’ve just announced what their sixteenth and last DLC is. While most of the content has been fairly light (a new costume, ooooo), their last offering is something of use, provided you completed the game or are close to doing so: A New Game Plus.
    The New Game Plus is something every video game that has an ending should include. It’s usually defined as the ability to ...
  • Dragon Quest XI Logo Revealed, Thanks To Leak Dragon Quest XI Logo Revealed, Thanks To LeakAbove you see the blurry image of the logo for the next main game in the Dragon Quest series. It’s blurry because the only copy the media has right now is 200 by 200 pixels. And the reason for that is because no one was supposed to have it yet.
    Square Enix’s new Dragon Quest game will be officially unveiled tomorrow, July 28, during an event that will be livestreamed at 5 PM. That’s Japan time, mind you, so it’ll actually happen when most of us are asleep. We don’t know anything about the game yet. But we do know what ...
  • Bethesda Reveals New Fallout 4 Details At QuakeCon Bethesda Reveals New Fallout 4 Details At QuakeConToday during QuakeCon, Bethesda revealed some new details about the hotly anticipated Fallout 4, specifically the types of characters you will be meeting in the game.
    They started by describing the dog, which is once again named Dogmeat. This time they based Dogmeat on a real dog — the lead designer’s dog. In order to animate Dogmeat as accurately as possible, they filmed that dog going about its day doing many different things. Bethesda says you will get Dogmeat very early (as soon as you leave the vault, in fact — instant dog!) and you can send him to conduct tasks ...
  • Odin Sphere Will Be Remastered In HD Soon Odin Sphere Will Be Remastered In HD SoonIf there’s any PS2 game that deserves the HD treatment, it’s the 2D RPG sidescroller made of beautiful paintings known as Odin Sphere. (That and Okami, which already got an HD remaster years ago.) Thanks to the original developer, Vanillaware, this game WILL be remastered soon, and thanks to Atlus, it will get a North American release.
    But there’s more! You won’t just be buying the same game again with a sharper finish. Vanillaware will be updating the combat and RPG mechanics, and adding some new content. They’re keeping mum on just what will be new, but they do mention additional ...
  • Presenting The Fallout Anthology Package, Complete With Mini-Nuke Presenting The Fallout Anthology Package, Complete With Mini-NukeIf the announcement for Fallout 4 made you interested in getting into the Fallout series, but you’ve never played any of the previous games before, Bethesda has you covered. Today during QuakeCon 2015, they revealed the Fallout Anthology Package for PC. It comes in the form of a mini-nuke that makes a special bomb sound effect when you push it somewhere (presumably the big red nose).
    Inside the nuke is every title in the Fallout series released to date: Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3 (Game of the Year Edition), and Fallout New Vegas (Ultimate Edition). They fit a little ...
  • Famitsu Gives New Info On Project Setsuna Famitsu Gives New Info On Project SetsunaDuring E3 a mysterious trailer was let loose by Square-Enix for a game called Project Setsuna. No gameplay footage or even cutscenes were shown; just several sketches and some moody music, plus drops of water, that suggested sadness or crying.
    This week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu contained an interview where Square-Enix president Yosuka Matsuda gave a tiny scrap of information out about the title. Turns out our suppositions of sadness were right on the money — in fact, that’s what the name is referring to. “Setsuna” is intended to suggest the Japanese word of “setsunasa,” which roughly means “sadness” or “sorrow.”
    If ...
  • The New Dragon Quest Spinoff Looks Very Minecraft-y The New Dragon Quest Spinoff Looks Very Minecraft-yEarlier in the month Square-Enix revealed that the next game to carry the Dragon Quest brand would be a spinoff called “Dragon Quest Builders.” Today they showed off three screenshots, the first glimpses anybody has ever gotten of the game. Stop me when this starts looking familiar to you.

    Yup….it’s definitely Minecraft, or as legally close as Square can get. I’ll explain the game mechanics, but you likely already know them: you mine materials from the land using the hammer shown in the pics. With the materials you gather, you can build objects like houses. Your goal in this case ...

  • Witcher 3’s New Patch Needs A Patch Witcher 3's New Patch Needs A PatchCD Projekt Red released Witcher 3’s long-overdue 1.07 patch last week. It took a while to be completed, but maybe it needed a little more work than that.
    Eurogamer.net’s Digital Foundry analyzed the effects of the patch on all versions of the game and concluded that while it fixes some problems, it introduces new ones: most notably, the framerate becomes significantly slower. In some areas on XBox One, the rendering speed crawls down to a mere 20 frames a second.

    “Essentially, gameplay on Xbox One now appears to rely on a similar double-buffer v-sync set-up to the PS4 game, locking its frame-rate ...
  • Witcher 3 Gets Upgraded With Patch 1.07 Witcher 3 Gets Upgraded With Patch 1.07The latest patch for The Witcher 3 took a long time to arrive, but you’ll soon see why. The patch — which is for all platforms, PC, XBox One and PS4 — does more than just fix bugs: it adds content for free, such as a new outfit for Ciri, a stash for players to store items in, and an “alternative movement style” for Geralt. Now he can move alternatively!
    This added up to the most elaborate and lengthy patch Witcher 3 has had to date. If you seriously have the time to read every single patch note below, it means ...
