  1. Oblivion released in 2006 bringing a massive open-world geared toward a mainstream audience to PC and console gamers alike. Players were able to explore Cyrodiil, a fantasy land full of kings and gods while experiencing a myriad of stories ranging from becoming the greatest thief in the land to stopping a full-blown demonic invasion. Does Oblivion stand on its own as one of the best games period or is it overshadowed by the likes of Morrowind and Skyrim? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 'Beyond the Imperial Prison' by HyperDuck SoundWorks (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03522) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  3. Who would've thought that Quake was a millennial? The seminal first-person shooter celebrates its 21st birthday today as its official release date was June 22, 1996. Quake has seen many games in the franchise since that initial release date. Nowadays, Bethesda is in charge and 2017 will even see a new game, Quake Champions. The last core game released under the Quake banner before Champions was Quake 4 which came out in 2005. Quake Champions was announced at E3 2017 and will feature multiplayer combat. During E3 2017, it got a new gameplay trailer that highlighted the competitive esports aspect of the game as well as the upcoming QuakeCon which will run from August 24-27. Did you play Quake back in the day? Will you play it today to celebrate? View full article

  5. Recognizing the enthusiasm behind its modding community, Bethesda announced the launch of Creation Club during its June 11 E3 press conference. The feature will support The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Special Edition and Fallout 4. Creation Club will be a "collection of in-game content" where players can create new weapons, armor, outfits, accessories, crafting, and housing features and new gameplay enhancements. A credit system will be used to grant assets in-game. The content itself is reportedly made by Bethesda Game Studios itself as well as outside developers and "the very best community creators." This influence from outside devs apparently made it so that the content provided through Creation Club will be compatible with save games, achievements and official add-ons. Expect to see Creation Club's launch Summer 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Are you a Bethesda modder? How would you use Creation Club? View full article

  11. Wolfenstein: The New Order was a surprise hit when it launched in 2014 thanks to its well-designed throwback gameplay and surprisingly weighty emotional storytelling. BJ Blazkowicz is back and is taking the fight home to Nazi-occupied America. After apparently surviving the grave injuries he sustained during the New Order's conclusion, BJ awakens in a hospital bed after a what appears to have been a lengthy coma. Despite killing Deathshed in the first game, the Nazis control of the world remains ironclad. This includes the United States, a country who's values have been twisted to fit the Nazis vision. BJ embarks on a mission to unite America's scattered resistance forces and release the Nazis grip on his homeland. Gunplay looks to be as exciting and over-the-top as ever, featuring bombastic gun fights against killer robots, crocodiles, and fire-breathing mechanized behemoths. The New Order's balance of human characterization and storytelling combined with a pulpy element of humor appears intact as well. Players can begin the fight to take back America when the game launches October 27. How do you think the game stacks up to The New Order? View full article

  13. The Evil Within was Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami's return to Resident Evil 4-style survival horror. Although it had its problems, the game was a solid entry in the horror genre and performed well enough to warrant follow-up. Tonight, Bethesda premiered the reveal trailer for The Evil Within 2 and the scares appear as horrific and mind-bending as ever. The trailer takes the viewer through a living nightmare experienced by the protagonist from the first game, Sebastian Castellanos. The game takes place three years after the events at the Beacon Mental Hospital but life hasn't improved for the tortured detective since then. Driving Sebastian back into the demented world is the news that his late daughter Lily might be alive, spurring him on a terrifying journey to find her. Stunning psychological horror visuals were littered throughout the trailer, giving gamers a glimpse into the world they will have to combat to help the protagonist. The Evil Within 2 will utilize survival horror mechanics that allow the player to decide how they will progress. The press release for the game also implies unreliable characters that " may lead – or mislead – you on your path to redemption." Taking advantage of fortunate timing, the game's release date is Friday, Oct. 13, 2017. What do you think of the return of The Evil Within? How do you think the gameplay will be updated?

  15. Bethesda revealed that Dishonored 2 is receiving its first standalone side content. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider puts the spotlight on Megan Foster AKA Billie Lurk, the boat captain companion from the game, offering a look into her shady exploits. The trailer showed off of Billie's deadly combat prowess, including an electrified metal arm and a sort of teleportation power used for taking enemies by surprise. After cutting down her opposition, Billie rescues her friend and a familiar face to Dishonored fans: the famed assassin, Daud. The pair reveals they’ve got their sights on killing the Outsider, the mysterious entity who guided Emily and Corvo throughout Dishonored 2, but their motives are unclear. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider will be available September 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. View full article

  17. Elder Scrolls Legends, the collectible trading card game based on the popular open-world series, launched earlier this year but a big update is already on the horizon. Heroes of Skyrim introduces over 150 new cards, including those based on notable Skyrim characters such as Aela the Huntress and everyone's favorite Khajiit, J'Zargo. One big addition is are new Shout cards that offer new abilities, which grow up to three times stronger the more they're played. Bethesda promises to reveal more information on these changes in the near future. A brief teaser of the expansion can be seen below. Elder Scrolls Legends players won't have to wait long for Heroes of Skyrim. The expansion arrives June 29. View full article

  19. Bethesda announced VR versions of two of its biggest titles during its E3 press event. Strap on your headsets, because Doom and Fallout 4 are on the way. Doom VFR which puts you behind the eyes of Doomguy as you mow down demons in what will surely be an intense and fast-paced VR experience. No release date was given, but the title is coming to HTC Vive. Fallout 4 VR doesn't appear markedly different from the standard version, but players can play the post-apocalyptic epic in the most immersive way possible. Fallout VR rolls out for HTC Vive this October. If you haven't yet taken the plunge on VR, are these projects enough to entice you to pick up a headset? View full article

  21. The release of Prey is little over a month away and the hype machine has begun to chug along at full speed. As part of a PR push for Prey, Bethesda and Gamestop have organized a science-fiction film festival with Alamo Drafthouse featuring a selection of classic movies that inspired the development team behind Prey. The Inspirations of Prey - Film Fest begins on April 4 and runs until April 27. These events will take place at Alamo Drafthouse theater locations around Texas, California, Colorado, Virginia, and New York. Each week a new film will be shown. The line-up consists of MOON, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, and The Matrix. Each ticket for a screening comes with a poster from Mondo, a slick graphic design company that approaches pop-culture with an artistic eye. You can see if the festival will be coming to a location near you and buy tickets on the Alamo Drafthouse website. On top of that, there will be small events at the theaters from iam8bit and Gamestop that will give attendees the opportunity to play Prey before release. These special fan events are happening at the locations and times below: Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse – South Lamar at The Highball Tuesday, April 4 5pm San Francisco at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – New Mission at Bear vs Bull Tuesday, April 11 5pm New York at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – City Point at House of Wax Wednesday, April 19 5pm Los Angeles at The Regent Theater Tuesday, April 25 9pm These events will require an RSVP beforehand, which you can do here, and admission is not guaranteed, so get there early if you plan on going.

  23. I've seen a lot of strange runs through many different games, but this one ranks as one of the most bizarre. When Bethesda's Fallout 3 begins, players go through a process to create their character. While most games relegate this to playing with sliders and moving stat points around, Fallout 3 allows players to "grow up" as their character, seeing different stages of their lives as they become adults. That process ends when the player enters the wider, blasted landscape of a post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. A couple years ago, players discovered it was possible to glitch through the baby section of Fallout 3's opening and escape from the underground Vault before events flash forward to when the player's character becomes an adult. The fact that the glitch exists is in itself is entertaining, but one player decided that they would play through the entire game as an infant. And, well... this happened. YouTuber Bryan Pierre walks viewers through his attempt to finish Fallout 3 as a baby. It's actually pretty fascinating to hear him talk about the details of how this works and how strange the game's implications become when the protagonist is a tiny baby. For example, the baby's hit box is much smaller than normal, so many enemies can barely hit a crawling child. The video itself is about two years old, but it is very much still worth a watch to see just how far some people are willing to go to do obnoxiously silly things in video games. View full article

  25. Arkane Studios Shares Prey Gameplay

    The developers of Dishonored 2 revealed a tantalizing 9 minutes of gameplay showcasing Prey. Their upcoming project takes place on a space station that has come under attack by mysterious, shadowy being with the ability to manipulate the world around themselves in mind-bending ways. By surviving, crafting, and upgrading themselves with human and alien abilities, players might just be able to make it out alive. Creative director Raphael Colantonio and lead designer Ricardo Bare narrate the gameplay trailer, which demonstrates some of the basic combat and uses for weapons outside of fighting. Prominently featured is the glue gun, which can freeze tricky mimics in place, but also create platforms to climb on and a way to plug flaming pipes. We also are able to see how gameplay will work when you can turn yourself into any environmental object, like a cup. The ability combinations are already intriguing and only a handful have even been revealed - from an extensive catalog, if the skill trees are to be believed. The whole thing feels an awful lot like System Shock, right down to the wrench the protagonist carries to fend off enemies at the start. If what we are essentially going to be getting a polished BioShock in space experience, I am all in on that idea. Prey launches sometime in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
