Bethesda gains full rights of Fallout IP after settling all lawsuits

After two years, nearly three, Bethesda Softworks and Interplay have finally reached a settlement over who owns the rights to the Fallout IP in regards to an MMO game being made. Interplay announced nearly five years ago that they were going to begin working on the title but nothing ever came about from this announcement, which is also part of why the lawsuit was placed in the first place. To be m...

Fallout: New Vegas’ Lonesome Road receives a trailer

With the final piece of DLC for Fallout: New Vegas being released next week, Bethesda has released quite an enticing trailer for the content. The Lonesome Road DLC trailer released today can be seen below and I must say, the voice of Ulysses, the man who initially turned down the job of delivering the Platinum Chip which inevitably set the Courier down the path to save, destroy or control the Moja...

Nuclear Dawn – Beta Impressions

The post-apocalypse nuclear backstory has been done, well, a lot. Suffice to say everyone has seen and played their fair share of games in that setting, a disappointing number of which are actually pretty poor, Fallout and Metro 2033 being examples from my Steam library that (in my opinion at least) failed to deliver anything really memorable. So what then has Nuclear Dawn, a class-based multiplay...

Dead Island Event Video

A few weeks ago I got the chance to visit the Mana Bar in Melbourne for a hands-on preview of Deep Silver’s upcoming tropical zombie-slaughterfest, Dead Island. The guys from GAME TV were also skulking around, interviewing people and taking in the impressive tiki-zombie decor. A video of the night surfaced yesterday, and this writer can be seen sipping on a Health Potion while trying out the...

Dead Island First Impressions

Deep Silver’s upcoming zombie RPG Dead Island has been gathering quite a lot of attention for a brand new IP, largely due to the fantastic backwards teaser trailer released in February. Naturally, I was intrigued as to how the game would play, and if it would feature as strong a focus on the characters and drama as the trailer implies. Zombie games have been done to (un)death, and individually, mo...

Five Post-Apocalyptic Games

Well, it’s May 22, and I for one am a little disappointed with the apocalypse yesterday. Movies, books, comics and games have been telling us what the end would look like for decades, and now that it’s here, it’s pretty dull. So rather than admit that, maybe, Judgement Day didn’t occur yesterday, I’ll present my list of games with much more interesting post-apocalypti...

Medal of Honor’s second coming

With the tragic release that was Medal Of Honor, EA hopes to redeem themselves with confirmation of a sequel to the first person shooter coming this year. Medal Of Honor failed to deliver in 2010 that EA’s stocks fell and fans were left scratching their heads over the developer’s motives. Retailers saw a huge increase of returns and trades of the game and many were left to drop prices ...

Interview with Martin Kool from Sarien.net

In addition to reducing productivity at work, retro game developer Q42 looks to change the quality of games we play with browsers using HTML5 and their site Sarien.net. Starting out as a simple retro chat environment then evolving into a full-scale Ipad game using HTML5 without the need for the App Store, surprisingly this little start up didn’t concern Apple as much as it did Activision.  T...
