"Well as it happens many of the aforementioned games are being developed/run but other studios such as Arkane Studios, who are running the Dishonored show. This means that Bethesda themselves aren’t particularly swamped with development jobs and therefore can put their effort into developing another Fallout game."
Fledgeling video game youtube show The Killer Bits has entered its tenth month, and the results are beginning to look promising. The trio of presenters cast a critical, no-nonsense eye over gaming-related news, features and reviews, with a slant towards humour.
The production value is high, the jokes are occasionally filthy and there's prizes to be won in monthly competitions. This month, the team look at Bioshock Infinite, Defiance and discuss at length whether or not pre-ordering games i...
"I know the whole tagline to NBC’s Heroes was “Save the cheerleader, save the world”, but I don’t necessarily think that it was meant to be taken seriously. It looks like Microsoft didn’t get that memo because rumors are abound that they are considering reviving the fallen show and bringing it to the Los Angeles based Xbox Entertainment Studios"
"Bethesda has released a third teaser video for the studio's mysterious game. This time it shows a window with a shadowy figure approaching, followed by the outline of what appears to be a vine (or barbed wire) in the lower right corner. Whatever it is, the same object was briefly shown in the very first teaser. Very strange, yet totally intriguing."
"Following in the footsteps of the first teaser’s brief offering of seemingly random imagery, this new teaser looks into Bethesda’s upcoming title by showing off a series of sunflowers that become set ablaze. As if that isn't strange enough, when the images are paused, a lone figure with his head obscured and in tattered clothing can be seen standing behind the flowers. Players who find this strange aren’t alone as confusing gamers seems to be the theme with these teasers. The first one, relea..."
"Nintendo promises plenty of 3DS news and information in today's Direct Presentation. Although you can watch the broadcast, expert Nintendo fans already know the news comes fast. So to help you keep track of all of the exciting announcements, we'll be posting a running tally of today's Nintendo 3DS Direct highlights. We'll continuously update this page with all of the latest news and announcements throughout the day."
"After announcing yesterday that the entire development team for “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” will be moving on to work on studio’s next big project, Bethesda released a new cryptic teaser on Tuesday for what this new game will be. Due to the appearance of barbed wire in the teaser, many gamers wondered if work had begun on the next “Fallout” game. However, Bethesda’s Pete Hines today replied to fans who were guessing if another “Fallout” title was being teased by saying, “Guess again.”
Gamesta.com thinks about the recent shuttering in the game industry. It wouldn't seem logical for a company like Disney to shut down a legacy like LucasArts, with no first party titles to note. With the announcement of EA to wipe away Playfish, once a big fish, there's ulterior motives that start to sink in. They just want these competitors gone at any cost.
"After supporting 2011's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with DLC and add-on content for the last year and a half, Bethesda is finally ready to move on to a new adventure. In a farewell post, the company confirmed parts of the team have already been in pre-production for the next "major" project, and "that game is at the point where it requires the studio's full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet.""
"Judging by recent comments made by Jonathan Blow, you might think every indie developer hates working with Microsoft. The Braid creator -- now developing The Witness for PS4 -- has made it perfectly clear that, in his opinion, "Microsoft treats independent developers very badly." Unfortunately, his opinion has been conveyed as fact, and because of that Microsoft is labeled as some anti-indie company that will "put you through as much pain as you will endure.""
"It's every developer's dream: create a game for the fans without the hassles of dealing with a publisher. While in the past this may not have been possible, a growing number of developers -- even some of the industry's most recognized -- are turning towards crowd funding to get their game funded. Kickstarter, an online crowd funding platform, has allowed numerous developers to fund their project without having to jump through the hoops of a publisher."
It's becoming Anonymous Creed IV: Hack Flag around here today as the hackers responsible for the 2011 PlayStation Network Security Breach (among other gaming, corporate, and government hacks) are being brought to justice by the long arms of the FBI and other organizations working in tandem with an insider who has rolled on seemingly the entire Anonymous + LulzSec crew.
"Lynx2Games appears to be catering to both the renting and buying crowds of gamers. Their system allows the borrowers to pay only $15 for a 3 week rental, which would cost $42 ($2 per day) with Redbox, and the buyers get a 25% discount on all their game purchases (Though they do have a 3 week wait for their game)."
"Capcom's decision to delay Lost Planet 3 from its original June release to August 27 was due to "business reasons." Following up with the earlier report in which Lost Planet 3's delay was quietly hidden at the bottom of a massive press release, a statement provided to us by Capcom simply said:"
"Along with the opportunity for some hands-on time with Infernum Productions and Runewaker Entertainment’s Dragon’s Prophet last month, Electronic Theatre was fortunate enough to sit down with key members of the team behind the videogame. Discussing the massively multiplayer online (MMO) genre, the free-to-play market and, of course, dragons, Infernum Productions and Runewaker Entertainment reveal some of the difficult decisions that have had to be made in order to bring Dragon’s Prophet to ma..."

"The likes of Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter have given today’s indie developers an amazing platform to help launch their dreams into reality, but it’s still not a walk in the park. Pixels and Polygons: An Indie Game Developer Story is a new Kickstarter project that aims to deliver a heart-felt story of one mans journey through indie life."
"Practically every gamer, at some point or another, dreams and aspires to become part of the industry they devote so much of their lives to. Sadly the internet is filled with dodgy schemes that promise instant success, over-priced schools that put aspiring gamers into debt for the next decade, and dodgy tutorials that focus on nothing but earning through affiliate links. However a new website (currently a work in progress), GameStarr Arts, is hoping to change all that by giving normal people t..."
