Rock out with Bethesda at their Wolfenstein PAX East party

Last year Bethesda threw a really killer fan event based around Elder Scrolls Online at PAX East. It was seriously cool. It was like in a castle, and you were given a sack of fake golden coins to trade for stuff, and that's a...

Groove to the sounds of German pop while you play Wolfenstein

What goes together better than a free Saturday night for me and a bunch of books about the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl? Why, the '60s and Nazis, of course! That's basically the premise behind Wolfenstein: The New Order, an...

It's not all shooting in Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of those games that sort of just exists. While there are neat aspects to the game -- I'm a sucker for alternate realities and mechs, to be clear -- it's hard not to be largely uninterested e...

Gaming Heads' Doom diorama is droolworthy

Gaming Heads is taking pre-orders for its new Doom diorama based on the game's iconic box art. The polystone statue is 12.5 inches tall by 17 inches wide and, okay, I'll stop stalling -- this thing is unsurprisingly not cheap...

Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared photo
Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared
by Abel Girmay

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a videogame that has guns in it, and you use these guns to kill people. That's about as remarkable a statement as I could rack my brain for after spending three hours with game.

As much as some Wolfenstein fans may want to greet The New Order with fanfare and anticipation, I have to say folks, there just doesn't seem anything noteworthy to this newest title. With the exception of a few moments, Wolfenstein: The New Order feels like a phoned-in, by the numbers first-person shooter.

If you're waiting for Fallout 4, it's going to be a while

Bethesda game director Todd Howard recently spoke to Rock Paper Shotgun about the Fallout series, and you probably aren't going to like what he has to say. Although everyone expects a "Fallout 4 in Boston" reveal so...

Pre-order Wolfenstein, get access to the next Doom game photo
Pre-order Wolfenstein, get access to the next Doom game
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

You'll get to shoot Nazi faces off in Wolfenstein: The New Order starting on May 20, 2014 in North America, and May 23, 2014 in Europe.

Typically release date confirmations would be a story on its own, but Bethesda has sweetened the pot here as pre-ordering the new shooter will also get you access into the beta for Doom 4. Note that Bethesda is referring to it as the "next Doom game" instead of as Doom 4. A reboot, perhaps? The Wolfenstein site has a little more info regarding the beta.

Along with that the release date and the next Doom game beta is this new trailer that starts off with a bang. Literally, look at those President heads explode. Bethesda sure knows how to make killer trailers.

You must watch this Elder Scrolls Online video right now
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Yes, it's a cinematic, but it's one hell of an impressive cinematic. Fan or not, you can't help but get excited for The Elder Scrolls Online after watching this eight minute long movie. Makes you really wish for an actual Elder Scrolls animated movie like this. At the very least, we may be getting more short movies like this based on how this one ends.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be out on April 4 for Windows and OS X, and in June for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
