  • Another Fallout 4 Hoax Shot Down Fallout 3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plz-bhcHryc
    Remember this classic scene from 2003 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture Ever Made The Room? This sums up how I feel, except the Lisa in this case is all the hoaxers out there who continually tease me with fake news about Fallout 4.
    The latest, according to PC Gamer, is a fake trademark filing for something called Fallout: Shadow of Boston. Now, I make it a personal policy to never go near Boston and it wouldn’t be my first choice for a Fallout game by any means, but I’d take it.
    There was a bit of a red flag that ...
  • The Blacksmiths Who Made This Helm Must Have Forged a Lot of Iron Daggers Iron Helmethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k1foQTQoTQ
    Bethesda promoted this new video showing off an amazing recreation of the Dovakhiin’s iconic iron helmet. You know, the one that sort of sucks in the game so you throw it away as soon as you find something better?
    Matt and Kerry Stagmer of Baltimore Knife & Sword make a pretty much perfect replica of the helmet, then test it out with some strength tests that even the Dragonborn didn’t have to worry about.
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Goes Gold Dragon Age: InquisitionLike many, I felt a little bit burned by Dragon Age II. But I’m willing to give BioWare another chance with the series, and news that Dragon Age: Inquisition has gone gold on all platforms and is on track to his store shelves Nov. 18 is welcome.
    The game’s executive producer, Mark Darrah, made the announcement in a blog post.
    We started working on this game in earnest more than four years ago, before we’d even finished Dragon Age II. Back then, our goal was simple: do whatever we had to in order to tell the biggest story we’d ever told in ...

  • New Video Explores FFXV’s Huge Open World FFXVhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJIjpl-vqlA
    Were you one of those people who felt a lot of Final Fantasy XII’s content felt like walking through a long hallway? Square Enix has listened to you, and seems to be pushing for the opposite extreme with its upcoming (some day) Final Fantasy XV.
    As you can see in the video above from Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae demo that will be released with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in March 2015, XV presents an open world that isn’t too dissimilar to Skyrim, except that you can drive around it in a car and stop at gas stations.
    The world is packed ...
  • Dragon Age Keep Lets You Import Your Old Dragon Age Choices in Dragon Age: Inquisition Dragon Age Inquisitionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqoHgAVXg80
    In advance of Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA has now launched the web game Dragon Age Keep.
    Dragon Age Keep is how you’ll make Dragon Age: Inquisition match up with your playthroughs of the earlier Dragon Age games. You’ve got 300 choices to make, if you can remember them all. It’s okay if you cheat a little and make a choice you only wish you had in a previous playthrough. I still feel a little bad about defiling those ashes

    “The story of Dragon Age is truly immense and filled with rich characters, beautiful and deadly locales and incredible events which have shaped ...

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition’s ESRB Rating Promises Some Ridiculous Adult Content This was to be expected from a game series that’s almost as obsessed with sexing up party members as it is brutally killing enemies, but still funny just the same. The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) description for Dragon Age: Inquisition lists some of the gore and sex stuff you can expect from the game, which comes by its M rating honestly.
    Here it is, in it’s full glory:
    This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a warrior battling evil forces in different dimensions. Characters use swords, axes, hammers, and magic attacks to kill fantastical creatures (e.g., ...
  • Dark Action RPG Lords of The Fallen Out Now Lords of the Fallenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LMlplNVSIU
    Lords of the Fallen, a new action RPG from developers Deck 13 Interactive and CI Games, is out now for those that are up to the challenge.
    The third-person hack-and-slash should appeal to fans of the Dark Souls series, but it has several features to set it apart including an XP multiplier mechanic that adds a unique risk/reward element to the game. Your XP gains increase by chaining kills and avoiding checkpoints, which save your game and renew your life, magic and energy and give you a chance to use the XP you’ve gathered for upgrades.
    You can be conservative and use ...
  • Here’s the Epic, Bloody Intro for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt The Witcher 3 Cinematichttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcogCjLymeI
    It’s rare that you see an intro that manages to be both epic and also weave in a sense of how the game will actually play, but CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt intro manages to pull it off.
    The intro follows one of Geralt’s former lovers, the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, as she does whatever it takes to survive on a chaotic battlefield, using her magic to make a bloody mess of anyone who threatens her. It’s intercut with scenes of Geralt tracking her by investigating the aftermath of the battle, as he tracks his quarry in the ...
  • If You Haven’t Tried Modded Skyrim, Check This Out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47eMlV7c0aw
    Have you taken the plunge to mod Skyrim, or are you still enjoying it on console or vanilla on PC? This video by Replay Network showing someone try modding for the first time might motivate you to change your mind.
    As you can see in the video, modding Skyrim to be more realistic can add new challenges and annoyances, such a risk of frostbite. But if you choose your mods carefully that simply adds to the fun to be had because it increases the player’s immersion. The player’s journey, in this instance, became not just a brisk walk, but a desperate ...
