  • . In this new steam punk inspired world, you’ll be a supernatural powered former bodyguard of an assassinated empress and framed for her murder…  Your environment is based on a whaling city, and similar to an old London with futuristic and paranormal aspects to it. . . Teleportation, Possession, Stopping Time, and Double Jumping are just a handful of tools that will be at your disposal.  One of the most intriguing things that I’ve seen from the game so far is the ability to combine different powers to compound aspects of what you’re trying to accomplish.  Mix teleporting with double jumps to cover ground and distance that would make Parkour fans salivate.  Stop time, possess people and move them around… It’s all fair game in this […]

  • I’ve recently acquired a copy of Rage, the first person shooter developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It seemed like a pretty decent line up and I was quite excited to return to a post apocalyptic world. Something, in my opinion – along with zombies and Coca Cola, that never gets old. I spend hours running around the Capital Wasteland of Fallout 3, oogling the scenery, running around, jumping, climbing trees and historical monuments alike and I wouldn’t have minded if Rage was like this, if only to give me a change of scenery that I haven’t explored to the max. At first glance, these two games appear suspiciously similar. You play as a character buried in a hole for the past […]

    Rekindling Rage – A Game Review

  • War, war never changes. My first sense of self was staring down at my tied hands. Pumpkin gloves as I know them. Thick leather gloves that you can use on a farm or ranch. My hands are tied and when I look up there are three men around me. One of them’s shifty, the other cold eyed and the last one dressed in a fancy suit. I look up at him as he smiles at me, draws out his gun, tells me it’s not personal and that the game was fixed and then… Then he shoots me. My vision goes white and I lose consciousness. Or die, depending on how you look at it. These are the opening moments of Bethesda’s fourth Fallout game, Fallout New Vegas. It’s […]

  • Day 2 6 am came early. Waking up after getting to bed just five hours earlier was difficult. The amount of fun I had the day before helped to welcome the morning sun a little easier. I looked over and realized that my camera wasn’t plugged in. Did it come unplugged during the night? No, I just forgot to plug it in again! It’s my main job and I dropped the ball, again. We got into the car and I started driving to the convention center. I made Joe hold my camera while the car charged it. We showed up early and waited to get in. We updated Jonathan on what happened the day before since he missed it. Our […]

  • SKYRIM Questions answered for our NERD TREK readers at PAX Prime 2011: Our time with Bethesda was limited so we couldn’t ask every question you submitted, but I think we did a pretty good job.   One of the guys from Bethesda told us that ours were the best string of questions by one media outlet he’s ever heard.  I credited the NERD TREK readers and he said he was very impressed.  Great job guys!  Here you go: Toney asked: Will there be Daedric Shrine quests? This question opened a can of worms.  Matt Carofano said that they have intentionally avoided confirming or denying this.  He said that they have NOT really talked about it yet.  Since the press demo […]
