Fans Breakdown Relative Size And Exact Locations Of The Map

Using the repeating landmarks that appear in Fallout 4's reveal trailer, comparing those to a real map of Boston, and some math, a group have fans think they have already built an approximation of Fallout 4's map.

The group, calling themselves The Pre-War Hub, estimates that Fallout 4's map is about twice the size of Skyrim's and have even been able to figure out the approximate distance between the assorted landmarks that appear in the trailer, as well as locations like the garage that appears in the end. The group even has a good idea where the nuke blew up and how far the people affected by it are standing from the blast.

You can check out a video of the group's findings below, or check out a breakdown of images by heading here.

Build Your Own Dungeon In This Reverse Roguelike

Build Your Own Dungeon In This Reverse Roguelike

Guild of Dungeoneering offers a twist on the roguelike formula: Instead of traversing through randomly generated levels, you build a dungeon with the intention of guiding your hero to victory. Developer Gambrinous recently announced this adventure will arrive on PC and Mac this summer.

While the premise sounds simple, your heroes may go off script based on their personality and needs. Considering the so-called heroes are rather pitiful, something noted in the game’s announcement trailer, Guild of Dungeoneering will likely have a high difficulty curve. For a look at the game’s mechanics in action, check out the release trailer below.

about X hours ago from

Action Henk and his ragtag band of friends are back. Curve Digital announced today that it's bringing the racer/platformer to the Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita later this year.

Action Henk takes players on a raucous thrill ride of '90s nostalgia as they race through bedrooms, amusement parks, beaches, and more. Each track has multiple paths to the finish line and four medals to win (bronze, silver, gold, and rainbow). Every millisecond counts, so players have to make smart use of running, jumping, and butt-sliding.

Use Music To Interact With A Fully Destructible Landscape

about X hours ago from

Empty Clip Studios has released a trailer showcasing its upcoming musical action/strategy title Symphony Worlds. The game, which will be debuting on Kickstarter later this summer, allows players to use a variety of musical styles to shape and interact with procedurally generated worlds.

Each planet features weather, a day-night cycle, living vegetation, and environments that can be both molded and destroyed by the player. Music is the number one way to interact with the world; playing a calming classical song will sprout a forest, while playing aggressive heavy metal music is perfect to get out of a dangerous situation.

Relive Classic Duels From The Show In The Series' Current-Gen Debut

about X hours ago from

The collectible card game Yu-Gi-Oh has been a video game staple since we still referred to the first PlayStation and Game Boy in the present tense. Now, the dueling game is heading to current-gen systems in a downloadable game called Yu-Gi-Oh: Legacy of the Duelist. In addition to featuring online battles against fellow card battlers, the single-player component lets players revisit some of the animated series' most memorable duels.

The campaign events span the official Yu-Gi-Oh timeline, from the first series through the latest, Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V. More than 90 characters from the show are featured, and there's a nifty twist on the action. After defeating an opponent, the perspective changes and you have to take on the hero character as the enemy. Konami says there will be hundreds of matches in this mode, as well as a comprehensive tutorial to get new players up to speed.

Players can compete in sealed-pack and draft play against the A.I. or fellow players online. Formats include Battle Pack: Epic Dawn, Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants, and War of the Giants: Round 2. There are more than 6,600 cards to choose from, which is the most featured in the video game series.

Bossa Studios Announces I Am Bread For PS4 In The Style Of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air

In I am Bread, you are bread. This is one case in which the game's title does tell you just about everything you need to know. Thankfully, those wacky slices of wonderful bread get into all sorts of hijinks.

The title is out now on PC, but those of you who prefer to wreak havoc as flour and water with a controller are in luck. I am Bread will be out on PlayStation 4 this summer. There's also a new trailer, which seems vaguely familar.

Experience Iconic Star Wars Trilogy Moments In Disney Infinity 3.0’s Rise Against The Empire

Disney Infinity 3.0 is bringing plenty of Star Wars love and nostalgia for fans. The Rise Against The Empire play set captures memorable moments from the original Star Wars trilogy (episodes IV-VI), dropping you in an open world complete with space combat. You won't just be walking around as Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia; get ready to control some cool vehicles and fly through space.

While lightsaber combat is at the center of the Twilight of the Republic play set, fun battles that get you in the cockpit of different vehicles are a big part of Rise Against The Empire. You'll face off against stormtroopers on a speeder bike on Endor, control your X-wing to destroy the Death Star, and even get on foot to explore open-world planets like Tatoonie. Jabba the Hutt and other iconic characters will also be along for the ride to give you missions. Don't worry; you'll still engage in combat and tackle some stealth to get around the original Death Star interior, so you're not always strapped in. The set is an intense mix of racing, platforming, and space battles.

Initially rumored, director Spike Lee's (Do the Right Thing, He Got Game) involvement in the next NBA 2K title was confirmed this morning, and now we can see some of the results of his efforts in a new video.

You won't find any gameplay footage in the trailer. Instead, you will find a presumably directed by Lee video emphasizing the importance of narrative basketball. After a narrated montage of empty courts and a few shots of standout moments in the game, Lee finishes the trailer saying, "Star in a Spike Lee Joint."

Compulsion's Psychedelic Dystopian Survival Game Hits Kickstarter

Compulsion's Psychedelic Dystopian Survival Game Hits Kickstarter

Earlier this year developer Compulsion Games, the team behind Contrast, announced We Happy Few, a new title about drugged-up English citizens living a life of blissful denial in the 1960s. We got a chance to play the first-person survival game shortly after the announcement, and were left to wait for more details. Today, the Canada-based Compulsion announced that We Happy Few is actually being funded via Kickstarter, with a goal of roughly $200,000 (250,000 CAD)

The announcement trailer below sets the tone of false, prescription-based optimism in an entertainingly bizarre chat between the in-universe talk show host Jack and creative director Guillaume Provost. He explains how players will control a "downer" who refuses to take his happy pills, trying to fit in with the hopped-up Wellies while foraging for food and supplies. Compulsion expects players to die a lot in their quest to escape the town, so proceedurally generated layouts will greet players each time they give it another go.

The Engineer Torbjörn Dominates The Battlefield In Newest Gameplay Demo

about X hours ago from

Blizzard isn’t being shy with information about it’s upcoming team-based FPS, Overwatch. This latest gameplay preview follows the dwarfish engineer Torbjörn through a seven-minute-long payload match. In payload one team is tasked with moving a objective to the capture zone before time runs out, while the defending team tries to prevent this. Torbjörn's turret and ammo support abilities work very well with this kind of map, which you can see for yourself in the trailer below.

The early build preview gives an intimate look at all of Torbjörn’s combat skills, including his ultimate ability Molten Core.  After watching through the video, one thing is for sure: Torbjörn may seem like a support character, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hold his own.
