  • Bethesda month(s) away from announcing new 2010 IP

    Pete Hines, VP of Marketing and PR for Bethesda, quietly whispered that we should expect a little something “in the next month or so”, reports MTV. It’s something that hasn’t been announced! No, MTV, it’s not a “Where’s Waldo” title because Ubisoft is working on that right now. Read More

  • ROFL: WET Shot at Love viral video

    Not too shabby for Bethesda’s upcoming third person shooter. It’s good enough for a chuckle or two, right? via Destructoid Read More

  • Bethesda dates WET For September 15

    Bethesda’s third-person shooter, WET, is slated for a September 15 launch on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It’s voiced over by the lovely Eliza Dushku, if that makes a difference to you. On a mission to find the man that left you for dead, you’ll master the controls that will allow you to create the most incredible fight sequences – limited only by your own imagination. Read More

  • Bethesda delays Fallout 3 PS3 DLC till September


    Ouch. Bethesda just said, on the official PlayStation blog, that it’s going to delay the release of all that Fallout 3 DLC for the PS3. Yup, PS3 gamers won’t be able to play the DLC until the end of September. Silver lining: Broken Steel will be the first one released, immediately raising the level cap and letting gamers play the game post-final mission. Read More

  • BioShock and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Xbox 360 game bundle out next month

    The headline might be misleading or confusing, but the BioShock and Elder Scrolls bundle does not include a console. It’s just a games bundle that includes the 2006 and 2007 Game of the Year Winners. Starting on July 7, you can get BioShock and Elder Scrolls IV for $40. The Windows PC bundle will be $30. Read More

  • Bethesda's lawyers to Interplay's lawyers: Hey, where's that Fallout MMO you guys promised?

    The Almighty Dollar strikes again, with word that Bethesda is none too pleased with Interplay’s progress on a Fallout MMO. Interplay sold the rights to Fallout to Bethesda a few years ago, and those rights included everything except an MMO. Hence, Fallout 3. But! Now Bethesda, seeing so many dollar signs, is asking Interplay what’s up with its supposed MMO. Translation: Hey… Read More

  • Saints Row 2 and Oblivion With Guns selling like hotcakes


    Or so they say. There aren’t a lot of actual sales numbers back yet, but THQ has shipped over two million copies of the well-received GTA-like game to retailers and seems to be riding high, while Bethesda’s highly-anticipated Oblivion With Guns has shipped nearly five million copies, and I don’t think that includes Steam, which was how I bought it. I guess technically… Read More

  • Grudge match: Fallout 3 vs. Oblivion


    There’s an interesting comparison here between Bethesda’s two major works of this generation, Oblivion and Fallout 3. In the end, it seems Oblivion “won,” although the reasoning is pretty flimsy. Now, I think the idea of a comparison in the first place is flawed, since it stands to reason that for two things to be compared, they must first be different in some way. And… Read More

  • Fallout DRM not exactly "mild"


    Earlier this month, one of the Fallout 3 developers at Bethesda described the intended DRM for the game as the “mildest form possible.” Well, Securom7 isn’t really the mildest form possible, since it has a serious problem coexisting with drive emulation software like Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120%. Now, they could have done a lot worse, and to be honest, it doesn’t… Read More

  • Bethesda to drop a new Oblivion in 2010


    Have you heard the news? Bethesda has started their random fantasy world generator and it should be done around 2010. They’ve upped the detail level to “7” so you’ll need a pair of new graphics cards and Microsoft should be including Bethesda in DirectX 12 talks. Bethesda also included a little jab for Nintendo, saying they weren’t interested in the Wii right now… Read More
