  • A Peek At The World Of Bravely Default II A Peek At The World Of Bravely Default IIWhat could be better than Bravely Default, the hit RPG that took the 3DS by storm? How about the sequel, due out on Switch in just under four months?

  • Microsoft Purchases Bethesda For $7.5 Billion Microsoft Purchases Bethesda For $7.5 BillionIs what we’ve been hearing true? Is Elder Scrolls — and Doom, and Fallout, and everything else falling under the Bethesda umbrella — now property of Microsoft? And to everyone who was complaining that XBox doesn’t have enough exclusives — are you happy now?
    Yes, it really happened — Microsoft outright bought ZeniMax Media, Bethesda’s parent company, for a figure only Microsoft could wield — $7.5 billion. The buyout covers everything Bethesda owns and is now the largest game-related purchase their new owners have ever made (though we’re sure they’ll find a way to top it before long).
