Bethesda's parent company ZeniMax Media has filed three trademarks for "Nuka Cola" as regards games, entertainment services and apparel, in what smells like evidence that a new Fallout game is in production. Now where have I heard that one before?
Titanfall wouldn't have been released at all without some last-minute investment from Microsoft, according to a fascinating, book-length report on the game's tumultuous development.
Games can be a platform for powerful anti-war messages, according to Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi. Don't believe him? You clearly haven't played enough Civilization.
Why would you buy Dragon Age: Inquisition for Xbox One, as opposed to your trusty old Xbox 360? Seemingly, because you'll get better water.
