What We Want: Fallout 4

In what was probably the most obvious reveal since Superman’s secret identity (we were pretty dumb kids in the 80‘s, apparently), we got a countdown from Bethesda. It was a simple timer, done up in a 50s style, with the words “Please Stand By” in the background; to most people, it’s pretty unassuming, but to fans of Bethesda’s work, it…

No Man’s Sky - A Real AAA Indie Game?

The way video games across all platforms are going, there’s a pretty clear divide between big studios with big names, big budgets, and big press coverage, and the smaller indie game marketplace.
