E3.

E3 never changes.

Actually it does, because this year marks the first year ever that Bethesda will be having its own conference at E3, and this year is all about everything Fallout 4! Tune in for new features, gameplay highlights, and all the latest news coming out of Bethesda regarding the most highly-anticipated game release of the year.

Speaking of releases, Bethesda should also be announcing the game's actual release date. Fingers crossed for 2015.

<br>The 'Doom' franchise has long been hailed as the acclaimed forefather of the first person shooter. For quite some time games as established as 'Halo' were coined mere 'doom clones.' But after enough first person shooter gaming, the various communities deemed 'Doom' for what it's always been: the perfect final product of the FPS as a gaming category.</br>

<br>Or that this modernized rendition of 'Doom' (with the multiplayer option) is the undeniable, amped up badass older brother of 'Halo.' There's no getting around the fact that this trailer pushes the boundaries of screaming bloody madness.</br>

<br>As far as the cream of the multiplayer mode crop, 'freeze tag' stands out amongst the rest the pack. A mode of play, which involves two teams squared off in 'team deathmatch' like fashion, where every time anyone gets shot, they're essentially frozen thereafter. Only way a player can regain movement is to have a teammate post up next to them for a measured duration of time. Winning team simply enough is the team that freezes the entire other team.</br>

Bethesda! How you tease us!

In the most recent of their educational videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, the developer goes over the importance of Intelligence.

These have been a whole lot of fun to watch, but all they do is dangle the carrot in front of our eyes before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release.

Marcy Long's built herself quite the reputation as the Commonwealth's most hated character. Fallout fans just can't stand the chick, AND she was marked as an essential character, which made her impossible to kill in the game. This dude straight up fires her out of a junk mortar:



And then there's the whole bizarre tutorial of how to get rid of Marcy Long with a f**king Deathclaw:



Well the latest patch
to hit Fallout 4 changes all that. The list of fixes in the update includes actual bugs, but also this little weird tidbit:

  • Jun and Marcy Long are no longer essential after completing “Sanctuary”

My running theory here...Bethesda was all about fixing the players' collective disgust toward Marcy Long. The hate was too real. People took it as far as creating mods in Fallout 4, where you could manage to kill Marcy Long.

Anyways, the reactions so far seem to be pretty dang positive:

Bethesda just keeps teasing us. In one way, we love it. But in another way, it just highlights how far away Fallout 4 seems.

This newest of the educational videos, which highlights the character building S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system lets you know what the deal is behind Charisma.

Tomorrow will be October, then it's just a quick 41 days until the release of Fallout 4.

We can make it, you guys.

We can make it.

When Bethesda announced the surprise release of mobile, free to play game Fallout Shelter last June, they only released it for the iOS crowd, leaving Android smartphone users out in the wasteland.

Well that all ends Aug. 13, as the resource management/time sink/very addictive game comes to all devices running Android 4.1 and up.

It is updated with the most recent bug fixes and content and does not even pretend to apologize for all the time and money it will take from your life. There are far, far worse ways to wait for the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.

You can get it from the Google Play Store here.
