Make sure to set aside a whole lot of hard drive space for The Evil Within

The Evil Within players might experience something slightly terrifying before ever booting up the game -- the amount of hard drive space that Shinji Mikami's latest creation takes up. Bethesda just released the system re...

Dio in Skyrim - What did you do the day Dio died? photo
Dio in Skyrim - What did you do the day Dio died?
by Bill Zoeker

Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio.

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.

Free-to-play Quake Live rocket jumps onto Steam today

Good news, arena shooter fans, id Software's Quake Live is launching today on Steam. As far as I can tell, the Steam version will be the same Quake Live you're used to if you're already signed up. Even though it may not be a...

Watch Sebastian stumble around a lot in this Evil Within trailer out of TGS 2014

We're marching ever closer to the release of The Evil Within, which is headed to a retailer near you October 14. Bethesda's latest horror IP is shown off in the latest trailer here, straight out of TGS 2014. If you've been t...

Try not to think about cantaloupe while playing The Evil Within

I get such a kick out of seeing how things are made, especially when the people making said things are having a blast. This behind-the-scenes footage for The Evil Within is exactly what I'm talking about. We're given a glimp...

Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early photo
Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early
by Alasdair Duncan

As someone living in the UK, it's super frustrating to see notifications pop up on a console or Steam showing my North American friends playing new releases when I usually have to wait a few more days to get my hands on the same game. Well, Bethesda is being nice to us Europeans and releasing The Evil Within on October 14, the same date of the North American release. 

This includes all platforms, both physical and digital in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, and India. If you're in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, you'll still have a couple more days to wait for The Evil Within but I'm really happy by this move.

As I mentioned earlier, it's annoying to see my friends playing the latest games while I'm stuck waiting for the preferred retailer release date -- especially when it's a PC game.

The Evil Within rocks some recognizable voice talent in this new trailer photo
The Evil Within rocks some recognizable voice talent in this new trailer
by Brittany Vincent

Ever wanted Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley to taunt you? Now you can with Haley lending his voice as The Evil Within's main antagonist, Ruvik. But he's not the only recognizable celebrity to have climbed aboard The Evil Within's hype train.

Anson Mount (Cullen Bohannon, Hell on Wheels) takes on his very first voice acting role as lead protagonist Sebastian Castellanos, so you'll be hearing quite a bit from him.

And last but not least, Jennifer Carpenter, whom you likely recognize as Dexter Morgan's foul-mouthed and totally badass sister Debra Morgan, is taking on the role of Juli Kidman, Sebastian's partner (and Junior Detective). You'll be able to play as Juli with content released later on in the game's life cycle, so plan on ponying up if you're a big Carpenter fan.

Interesting choices as far as voice talent goes. Me? I'm just glad that we're looking past Nolan North these days.

There's plenty of death in this hour-long The Evil Within video

Based on this hour-long play session of The Evil Within, I'm not expecting to be particularly scared by the game, but I am expecting to die quite a few times. Given its limited checkpoints, the fear of failure and having to ...

Which of these alternate The Evil Within covers do you like best?

I tend to prefer alternate game cover art over the "real" thing and The Evil Within is no exception. Publisher Bethesda has three covers for us to vote on and whichever piece wins will be used on the inside sleeve for the lau...

Video: Doom's secret QuakeCon reveal may be all we get until 2015 photo
Video: Doom's secret QuakeCon reveal may be all we get until 2015
by Bill Zoeker

As we reported earlier today, attendees of QuakeCon last week were treated to a sneak peak of id Software's upcoming interplanetary demon slaughterfest, simply title Doom. Word came in from Doom publisher Bethesda that the limited showing is all anyone will get until 2015, as id isn't comfortable putting anything out in the wild until they're quite ready for a formal release. Still, what's been revealed about this showing sounds bloody awesome.

Don't expect to see any Doom until 2015

QuakeCon attendees got to see some Doom footage. Anyone streaming was said "good-bye" to as the stream cut out. Bethesda Softworks VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines told PC Gamer that the new Doom just isn...

The Evil Within jump starts the scares a week earlier than planned

If indecision frightens you, then there's plenty to be scared of when it comes to The Evil Within. Originally slated for an August release, Bethesda pushed it back to October 21. Now that we're a bit closer to that window, th...

We can't see the new Doom yet, but it sounds like a return to form

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ...
