A Fallout TV show is on the way from the makers of Westworld

War never changes, but prestige TV sure can. Today, Bethesda announced that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, creators of HBO's Westworld, are taking their cinematic lens to Fallout, working with Amazon Studios to create a post-apocalyptic telly show based on the long-running nuke 'em up RPG. Hold on, though - a darkly comic show about robot cowboys, deserts and conspiracies? Sounds quite a leap for…

Doom Eternal to be purged of controversial anti-cheat software

As you may or may not have noticed, there is a bit of a hoo-ha going down about kernel-level anti-cheat software. This is software that peeps at what Windows is up to using administrator privileges, which some people are understandably unhappy about. Happily, then, Doom Eternal developers Id Software are going to rid their game of Denuvo Anti-Cheat. The purge will come in an update…

You can try Fallout 76 and its new Wastelanders update free this weekend

Originally ill-fated and now much-upgraded sort of MMO Fallout 76 is having its moment in the sun at last. It's still not the best Fallout game on the block, but it's not someplace you'd be utterly embarrassed to invite your mates. To that end, Bethesda are running a free-to-play weekend starting this Thursday. Now that the online Fallout game has made its way to Steam,…

Fallout 76’s Collectron bot stops working if you don’t acknowledge communism

A handy Collectron bot can stomp around and collect junk for ya.

Doom Eternal’s composer doesn’t approve of the soundtrack album’s mixing

Blood, guts, and chainsaws are integral parts of Doom, but so are its bangin' metal soundtracks. Australian game sounds man Mick Gordon was the composer for both Doom (the 2016 one) and Doom Eternal's soundtracks, winning multiple awards for the former back when it released. The Doom Eternal OST launched over the weekend and apparently something sounded off to those with an ear for it.…

Steam users tried to review bomb Fallout 76, but some of its fans are having none of it

Yesterday, Fallout 76 arrived on Steam, bringing with it the brand new Wastelanders update. It almost seems like a total refresh for the game, introducing human NPCs, warring factions, quests to complete, as well as a bunch of much needed quality of life changes to the Wastelands of Appalachia. You'd almost think Bethesda added all these things purely to spite 76's players however, because shortly…

Make sure Fallout 76’s new wastelanders won’t kick you out of your camp

The big free update that brings human folk back to Fallout 76's desolate West Virginia is launching next week. Settlers and raiders have moved back into the Appalachian hills to rebuild and hunt for treasure. The new factions are claiming territory too, which might conflict with the C.A.M.P. you've already built. Bethesda posted a handy map so you can make sure you aren't living somewhere…

Bethesda aren’t planning a digital announce-o-rama for June

June is typically a big month for gaming announcements but as with many other things, the Covid-19 coronavirus is putting a hold on that. Whether at E3 proper or in the week leading up to it, big publishers like Bethesda use the month to show off plans for the year. E3 is cancelled, as are many other gaming events, and according to Bethesda it won't…

Here’s how game developers are handling the Covid-19 outbreak

Over the last week or so, game developers and publishers around the world have been announcing their action plans amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Bungie have offered advice to other companies, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege might miss a few patches, and many others have sent their employees home, dev kits in hand, to make sure production plods along, all the while doing their part to…

All but one of the publisher's games on the service - from Doom to Dishonored - were pulled from GeForce now yesterday, leaving only Wolfenstein: Youngblood standing and streaming.

The guy mimicking Skyrim NPCs by walking into stuff is actually pretty funny

When Skyrim NPCs absolutely will not stop standing on chairs, walking into walls, and getting generally confused about pathfinding their way around one loose cobblestone in the road, I usually just sigh and roll my eyes. They don't know any better and they never will, I remind myself.Turns out, it's a lot damn funnier when an actual human being does the same things with some…

Play The Elder Scrolls: Arena as a distressingly muscular Garfield

I won't blame you if you don't click on this post. The image is horrifying—I know. If you pop on in here I promise I'll try to teach you a thing or so about Khajiit morphology using this ridiculous mod for The Elder Scrolls: Arena. If you can't see it for any reason, it's the head of Garfield, the 1978 version of the comic book character,…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Blazkowicz but of his twin daughters, Jess and Soph. Our Wolfenstein: Youngblood guide will walk you through everything we know about the game so far, from release date and pre-order details to info on story, setting, combat, and…

Bethesda open the streaming floodgates with new Orion tech

In between your Deathloops and your Doom Eternal announcements this morning, Bethesda announced something called Orion. It wasn't a game, but rather a sexily-named "group of patented technologies" designed to make game streaming a heck of a lot faster, cheaper and easier for both developers and players alike. It's not their answer to Google Stadia. Far from it. Instead, it's an underlying bit of tech…

Rage 2 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Welcome back to the wasteland, you raving bunch of lunatics, because today's the day that Rage 2 finally blasts its way onto PC. Filled to the brim with tongue-waggling goons and mohawked, tattooed hoodlums with very itchy trigger fingers, the successor to id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic shooter is now bigger and boomier than ever, thanks in no small part to their collaboration with Just Cause…

We need to talk about Rage 2’s keyboard controls

Rage 2 is very almost here on PC, but for a game half-developed by Doom maestros id Software, there is something really quite rotten about the state of Rage 2's default keyboard controls. For as well as having an arsenal of mildly ridiculous guns at your disposal, you also have various special abilities to help you in the heat of battle, such as the sonic…

Wolfenstein: Youngblood goes tag-team Nazi-hunting in July

Co-op Nazi-mangling spinoff Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches on July 26th, just before my birthday. It looks to be a gift that literally keeps giving, too; the Deluxe edition comes with a 'Buddy Pass', so you can invite a special someone to join you on your power-armoured rampage. Set some years after Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, it casts one or two players as BJ Blazkowicz and…
