Podcast: Remakes, reboots and remasters

Welcome to the freshly relaunched RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show! You might think this is episode 31, but actually it’s episode 1 again. We’re rebooting it, even though we just did that last year. We’ve started by making it more accessible. Instead of three of us chatting about videogames between snippets of jaunty music, there’s just a sad man saying “Sonic the Hedgehog” over…

Oodles Of Old Blood: An Hour Of Wolfenstein

Wolfenstein [official site] ranks as one of the best and biggest surprises of last year, stretching beyond its source material to offer a romp through wonderfully designed levels, non-linear stealth, and even a plot that strayed into unfamiliar territory like "heart-warming" and "actually funny." More, then, is what we wanted and what Bethesda intend to supply with The Old Blood, a smaller standalone prequel coming…

Pulp Prequel: Wolfenstein – The Old Blood

Bethesda have just announced a Wolfenstein: The New Order stand-alone prequel, which is wonderful news. Going by the subtitle The Old Blood, it's set in 1946 as the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. Good ol' Blazkowicz sets out on a tw-part mission, first of all breaking into the titular castle and then heading to Wulfburg to prevent the exhumation of…

Super Wolfenstein HD Relives Classic In Ridicul-O-Vision

The last time I tried to play the original Wolfenstein 3D was a few years back, on a netbook. It seemed like a good idea at the time. About half an hour later my contorted, shrivelled fingers revolted, crawled out of their sockets and attempted to end me. They failed, of course, because fingers detached from hands cannot exert significant pressure. So it is that…

I Did Nazi That Coming: New Wolfenstein Footage

BJ Blazkowicz is probably regretting his choice of transport. When he clicked on The Trainline's website and booked his tickets, instead of grabbing a seat in the "Moving HQ of the Aryan Race", he should have selected "Quiet Coach". That way the worst that would have happened is the that someone might be playing music on tinny earbuds DESPITE THE CONDITIONS OF THE COACH BEING…

Hands On – Wolfenstein: The New Order

Update: This article has been updated to reflect the following factual corrections: your co-pilot is called Fergus, not Rufus; the cover system is still present in the game; a painting on the wall was of Deathshed, not the Fuhrer. "In my dream, I smell the barbecue. I hear children. A dog. I think I see someone. Someone I love. These things are not for me.…

So I Played Some Wolfenstein: The New Order

Huh, the spellcheck on here knows the word 'Wolfenstein'. Good job, dictionary attendants. Anyway, the reason I've had cause to use that peculiar faux-Teutonic title today is that I played an early press build of the latest game in the series, Wolfenstein: The New Order, at Gamescom. It was a strange experience, not least because it seemed so desperate to remind me that Nazis are…

Wolfenstein Videogame Announcement Bingo

Word on the grapevine (Twitter) has it that there'll be some big, noisy game announcement at 2pm, but at the time of writing I have no idea what it would be because no-one tells me anything. Probably because RPS has insulted pretty much everyone by now, but oh well. In the aim of providing vaguely timely news, I have pre-written the below post ready to…

So The Wolfenstein Movie’s A Thing Again

It's been interesting to watch Disney's Wreck-It Ralph get showered with acclaim for being "the best videogame movie ever." I say that because, well, "best videogame movie ever" doesn't really mean anything. Heck, most announced films based heavily around games have yet to even reach a point where they could safely be called "existent" - let alone "good." World of Warcraft, Mass Effect, Deus Ex,…

Wolfenstein: A Demo Of The 2009 Game

Alternative title: "Demo-nic Possession". Cos, you know, occult and stuff. Oh, nevermind. Wolfenstein, the recent manshoot from Raven, has a demo. I know, how about that! We certainly have had a bumper crop of game demonstrations of late. This particular demo is apparently a mere 685mb big, which seems quite economical in these engorged times. It also means that the game is no good, because…

Quickie Impressions: Wolfenstein

Just a few thoughts on a few hours of Raven's latest suckling at id's IP teat... Lest word hasn't reached you yet - perhaps unsurprisingly if so, given the dearth of pre-release reviews - BJ Blazkowicz's latest corridor-based Nazi-gibbing adventure seems disappointingly flat. Given id are now a part of the Bethesda/Zenimax machine, it's highly unlikely Raven will ever get a crack at the game…

Flamethrowers And Zeppelins, Together At Last

Raven's reworking of the old lone Wolf will soon be upon us, August 18 for North American and August 21 for Europe. I've post the two most recent game-footage trailers below, in which we seen BJ using his supernatural vision and a flamethrower to clear the decks of a Zeppelin. I'm wondering whether that bit of the game ends in an explosion. It's a fair…

Wolfenstein: Captain Generic Saves The Day

Just out is this moving-picture displaying the introductory sequence to Raven's upcoming Wolfenstein do-over. It's a curious project, for once putting the mystical overtones of the Wolfenstein series front'n'centre, as opposed to the usual late-game burst of fantasy weirdness. This cinematic, though, aptly demonstrates its two conflicting elements - Nazi-shooting and crazy gothic magic, the latter this time to be wielded by you as well…

Wolfenstein: BJ Vs The Magical Nazis Trailer

Well, that's what the trailer should have been titled. Actually it's more about the goofy occult horror angle of the reworked shooter, showing off the reality-hopping "veil" effects and the green-emitting monsters that Nazi scientists have created to destroy Freedom, jazz and apple pie. There are also impossibly large guns. That's right: it's Wolfenstein, it's coming this summer, and it's a first-person shooter videogame. We…

Wolfenstein 3D 4

Oh, I wish it really were called that. I miss the days when game names were ritually suffixed with '3D'. I might start doing it anyway. "Next week, we'll be posting about Fallout 3 3D, Spore 3D, Warhammer Online 3D and Peggle..." There doesn't seem to be a huge amount of buzz around Raven's upcoming occultist-Nazi shooter just yet, at least not compared to id's…

E3: The Trailers – Wolfenstein

(Apologies if all this E3 stuff is bugging you - normal service will resume on Monday, but we wanted to make sure we aggregated all the big PC talking points). First footage of the new Wolfenstein game, handled by perennial id lackeys Raven - who have much to prove after Quake 4. Though they are also, for the first time since 2000's Soldier of Fortune,…

Marvel Dies, Wolfenstein Lives

Well, hello. I've just gone six days without the internet. Cursed steam-age parents. Remind me to never, ever leave my house again. Clearly, I've a lot of news to catch up on, once I've finished staring in fascinated horror at some of the angry reader comments on the Eurogamer Top 50 Games of 2007 feature, which all four of us RPSites contributed to enthusiastically. My…
