Bethesda Announces Bethesda.net

During its press conference at E3 2015, Bethesda announced Bethesda.net, which will provide a unified framework for Bethesda's games, forums, and other features like user-created content such as the the recently announced Doom Snapmap.

While very little was actually stated during the presentation as to how it will work (if it's going to be something like Uplay or Origin, for instance) we can assume we'll hear more soon.

Id Software Shows Off Doom Multiplayer And Community-Driven Doom Snapmap

During today's Bethesda E3 media briefing, Id Software gave fans a brief glimpse of what the multiplayer offerings for the upcoming Doom will look like. While the gore and fast-paced action we've come to expect from the franchise were ever-present, Id also put on display a way to let players flex their creativity within Doom.

Id Software is aiming to deliver fast-paced, arena-style combat that takes players from a facility on Mars to the depths of hell. Players are able to battle it out in modes ranging from domination to freeze tag to clan arena. The multiplayer is said to feature vertical movement and unique weapons and power-ups.

During the brief demo, we saw players wielding rocket launchers, machine guns, and other weapons that made their enemies explode into a pulp. We also saw a player in the role of a Revenant as it used its mounted weaponry and pick up a pentagram power-up.

Nintendo Reveals A Handful Of New Smash Bros. Amiibo

about X hours ago from

Nintendo today confirmed every character in Super Smash Bros. is getting an Amiibo. Masahiro Sakuri, the game's director, revealed a handful of them today during another Smash-focused Nintendo Direct.

The newly announced wave consists of R.O.B., Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch, and Falco. The Mr. Game & Watch figure comes with different accessories that allow for different poses (see the images below). Nintendo also revealed Amiibos are on the way for the custom-made Miis. This line features default bodies for the Fighter, Swordfighter, and Gunner. These Mii characters are fully customizable in game, and can wear any of the newly announced DLC costumes. All of these newly revealed figures are due out in September.

The last bit of Amiibo news is the confirmation that Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, and Ryu are getting their own figures at an unannounced date. Nintendo still hasn't been able to meet consumer demand in the United States for any of its Amiibo waves,and outside of Marth, hasn't revealed plans to bring back any of the figures that are hard to find.

While we likely know most (if not all) of the information from this morning's Super Smash Bros. announcement, you might want to tune in anyway. Nintendo might have "one more thing" to tell us that dataminers weren't able to uncover.

Yesterday, we reported on the investigative work of those that delved into the recent patch. That update is out in Japan, which supposedly (and convincingly) revealed both Fire Emblem's Roy and Street Fighter's Ryu as upcoming approaching challengers.

Did everything leak, or are there more surprises? Find out soon below.
