I suspect I will be skipping this title, which will be the first Fallout title I have ever skipped on purchasing. It just seems like they are going down the old Electronic Arts route of "add multiplayer to everything" no matter how bad of an idea that is.

Twenty-nine years ago today my brother and I pooled our money together, and went to Shopko to buy the new 16-Bit machine. We hooked it up to the 19'' black and white TV we had in our bedroom. A short while later, our folks bought a new 19'' color TV for the family room in the basement, and we quickly moved the Genesis to that.

Played some of the Black Ops 4 beta over the past two weekends and I have to say that I am actually enjoying it. Truth be told, I�m not a fan of Treyarch either and I prefer the Modern Warfare series mainly because of the hit detection is so much better in multiplayer, but ever since the battle royale genre has become main stream, I�m begging for just any good shooter at this point.

GamesRadar+ has the story. Quote: Wondering when Bethesda is going to hop aboard the Battle Royale bandwagon with 100-player Fallout 76 elimination matches, or a version of Skyrim where you airdrop onto an island and start hunting other Dragonborn? It'll likely never happen, according to Pete Hines, SVP of Bethesda's global marketing and communications (who you've no doubt seen during Bethesda's E3 presentations). Speaking with GamesRadar+, Hines explained what he looks for in successful game pitches, and he's none too keen on copying the latest trend. "If it sounds interesting, if it's something the devs are clearly excited about, and it's something we think is unique and different, that's trying something new or doing something new, that's what gets me excited," says Hines. "If it's like 'Well, these guys did this, so we're gonna do this,' I can't stay awake. 'Hey, here's our Battle Royale game!' No thank you. Not even remotely interested. That's not who we are as Bethesda; that's not how we've gotten to where we are over the last 30-odd years. And honestly, I think our devs know better than to say 'Oh, we're just gonna riff off of something that somebody else is doing.'" Hines cites Bethesda's virtual card game The Elder Scrolls Legends as a recent example. "If it was just a true Hearthstone clone, I wouldn't have been interested," he...
GameSpot has the story. Quote: Bethesda has discussed how Fallout 76 will deal with griefers, namely players that are intent on attacking and killing others, even when their target isn't interested in player versus player combat. As discussed during the game's QuakeCon 2018 panel by game director Todd Howard, Bethesda decided to turn griefers into content for other players by giving them a taste of their own medicine. "We want this element of danger, without griefing," said Howard, who continued on to explain that when you shoot someone you do a little bit of damage. He equated this action to lightly slapping someone in a bar to see if they want to fight. The other player can choose to ignore this slap or engage, and if it's the latter you start doing full damage. Those that don't want to engage in PvP but are still killed do receive some in-game justice. The player that kills someone who doesn't agree to combat becomes a "Wanted Murderer" and receives no rewards from their kill, whether it's caps or experience. This player also then appears on the map as a red star and has a bounty placed on their head. The money from that bounty is taken out the murderer's pool, and also, other players looking to cash in on that bounty aren't visible to the murderer on the map.

Quote: The QuakeCon 2018 Keynote brought us a delight of new RAGE 2 footage It�s got everything. A big, beautiful, seamless open world. Explosions. Vehicle combat. Explosions. Sick f***ing powers. Explosions. In addition to providing an extended look at the world of RAGE 2 (have we mentioned explosions yet?), the QuakeCon footage also showed off the game�s massive and monstrous convoys for the first time. Check out the full video and get an idea of how the game�s convoys work. The streets of RAGE 2 are dangerous, and not in a Hitcher way, although you probably shouldn�t just pick up strangers you see on the side of the road. In addition to some of the more commonplace faction activity � random attacks, roving patrols, etc. � you�ll also encounter many of the gigantic convoys you saw in the video. These wheeled fortresses are heavily defended and will pose a hefty challenge to anyone ballsy enough to try to take them down. But Walker isn�t too worried. With the help of his all-purpose death machine (the Phoenix), he bobs, weaves and blasts through the enemy onslaught, deftly avoiding traps and meeting fire with fire. Taking down a convoy will net you some sweet rewards, including bigger and badder vehicle weapons for future encounters on the road. Both the Goon Squad and the Immortal Shrouded have their own convoy networks, and...
