Microsoft Acquires ZeniMax for $7.5 Billion

It's official.

Microsoft has confirmed that they are in the process of acquiring ZeniMax Media for a cool $7.5 billion (USD) in cash. ZeniMax is the parent company of studios like Bethesda, creator of The Elder Scrolls, as well as id Software, the developer behind DOOM.

This acquisition is reportedly the "biggest video game purchase ever" for Microsoft.

At present, Bethesda has two games that are slated to arrive in 2021. Those include Deathloop...

$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    This Used to be Doom 4

    Mark Bristol shared his highlight reel from his time spent working at Blur Studio as a cinematics director. As part of his footage, there was a brief segment that showed off what Doom 4 used to look like.

    I hope you like your Doom games looking like some weird Terminator meets Fallout meets RAGE mashup.

    Doom E3 2015 Teaser Trailer

    It's Doom. There's a double-barreled shotgun. There is also a Revenant. I'm going to also assume that hell is involved somehow alongside Imps, Barons, Hellknights, and maybe a Cyberdemon or two.

  • The First Three Hours of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    The First Three Hours of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    I finally had a chance to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt today. The first time I played, I decided to stream it from my PS4 for three hours. I will say that there are a mix of story missions, side quests, exploration, played a round of cards, death, and a butt or two. If you don't want to have any spoilers ruined for you, don't watch. If you want to see the early bits of a game that will probably take most everyone 100 or so hours in a "typical" playthrough. Also, for those that hate my voi...

    Rumor: The Last Guardian to Have Presence at E3 2015

    Look, I'm usually super skeptical about rumors nowadays, especially when it comes to anything related to The Last Guardian. With that in mind, I will say that the following seemed notable enough to at least mention.

    A few posts from a mysterious user on NeoGAF seems to indicate that they have some sort of knowledge that the rest of us plebeians do not possess. When asked in a thread on NeoGAF whether or not The Last Guardian will be shown at E3 2015, the answer was a very unambiguous...
