Wolfenstein: The New Order just isn't doing it for me photo
Wolfenstein: The New Order just isn't doing it for me
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Bethesda is bringing back Wolfenstein, the first-person shooter that lets you kill countless Nazi bastards. The New Order takes place during the 1960s in an alternate history Earth where the Nazis have taken over the entire planet with their highly advance robot fighting force. It all looks hopeless, that is, until William "B.J." Blazkowicz finally awakens from his coma.

I got to see a good chunk of the game at a recent preview showing, and story wise, Wolfenstein has this very campy, almost Quentin Tarantino style going for it. Gameplay wise, well, it's looking like the standard FPS experience that I'm quite frankly just getting tired of.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is passing on multiplayer

As much as I don't like assuming the worst, the continued inclusion of multiplayer components in games that truly don't need them and would be better off concentrating on single-player has given me no alternative. Which is wh...

Get Skyrim shirts from the official Bethesda store

Bethesda now has an official shop where you can buy a good-sized and varied selection of merchandise related to Skyrim, Dishonored, Fallout, Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Everything from t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, figurines, lithographs, and messenger bags.  Personally, I would love to wear a Winking Skeever shirt with a pair of Vault 101 sneakers. That's the pinnacle of fashion my friends.
