    Fallout 76 will NOT be on Steam

    “ Bethesda has become the latest video game publisher to begin pulling a major game series from rivals' download services. The publisher's latest announcement about the online RPG Fallout 76included hints to a first for a 3D Fallout game: it won't be sold via Steam. Our suspicions were raised by...

    Starfield (confirmed)

    It’s real yo. Next gen space RPG. Bethesda’s first new original IP in 25 years. Likely not coming until 2020

    Starfield Trademark Gets Weirdest Update Yet

    I don't even know where to begin with this one. What do you make of this? Only thing that really comes to mind is maybe they are trolling us. Seems like trolling is the current Bethesda marketing technique.

    Fallout 3 Anniversary

    Fallout 3's tenth anniversary is coming up this fall, so many (such as myself) see a Fo3 remaster as a genuine possibility. There has been an incredibly suspect 'leak' suggesting such it will be coming to the Switch, so many people write off the idea of Fo3 Anniversary entirely. Still, there...

    Monte’s OFFICIAL BE3 Predictions

    Disclaimer: I have no inside info about what bethesda is planning to show, nor is this based on any “leaks”. Purely my own speculation. As everyone remembers, last year’s BE3 was somewhat of a letdown. The only big reveals were Wolfenstein 2 The evil within 2, and Quake champions. I still don’t...

    How does Rage 2 affect the prospect a Fallout spinoff?

    Many people are convinced Rage 2 changes the prospect of a Fallout spinoff. Some people say that Bethesda publishing an open-world post-apocalyptic shooter indicates the Fallout franchise won't return anytime soon as releasing a Fallout game also would oversaturate the market. On the other hand...

    What are your Bethesda E3 predictions?

    With E3 2018 fast approaching, many are curious what Bethesda might do for their press conference. Bethesda hasn't opted against having their own press conference since 2014, but as most of their major studios are likely too early in development for an announcement, it's possible they'll opt out...

    Question What are the chances of us seeing Elder Scrolls VI or another Fallout game before 2020?

    Pretty much as the title states. Do you think we will be getting ESVI or another Fallout game before the new decade? I know Bethesda have kind of stated that they don't yet have the tech to even start making the ESVI yet but what about another Fallout? Even one developed externally?

    Question Prey or Dishonored: Which do you prefer?

    Assuming you've played both Prey (2017) and a Dishonored game, which do you prefer and why?

    What will happen to Arkane?

    Despite their quality, both Prey and Dishonored 2 underperformed financially according to Bethesda. In the wake of this, Arkane Studios is left with a somewhat uncertain future. Surely, Bethesda won't continue to prop them up if they don't start bringing in more money, so it's reasonable to...

    What will we see from Bethesda in 2018?

    Over the past two years or so, Bethesda has published and developed a lot of good games, so it's only natural to wonder what they'll offer up next. Do you think 2018 will be as big of a year for Bethesda as the last few years? What do you expect them to release?

    What do you think of Wolfenstein II's politicized marketing?

    As we approach Wolfenstein II's launch, the marketing team's use of far-left talking points becomes increasingly apparent. These far-left talking points range from the insistence that Trump is 'literally Hitler' and 'the resistance' in relation to modern America to 'punch a nazi'. Some dismiss...

    How would you rate some of the more controversial publishers and developers?

    Over the years, several companies have attracted controversy due to their treatment of consumers, their treatment of employees, and/or the quality of their products. Some that come to mind include EA, Bethesda, Rockstar, Ubisoft, CD Projekt Red, and Activision. Overall, how would you rate these...
