No demo coming for Fallout 3

No demo coming for Fallout 3

When you know that a major game will be coming out, you'll usually wait around for a demo to come out a short while before the actual game does. You'll usually get enough of a taste of the game to leave you wanting more, and thus play it over and over. However, if you're hoping for a demo of Fallout 3, you can stop, because it isn't happening.

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

When you play a game, you expect there to be one ending. (No, throwing your controller through the TV in frustration does not count as an ending). Sure, some games do give you a chance to experience different endings based on the choices you make throughout the game. However, even in these games you're limited to a few at best. Not Fallout 3 though, it's got more ways to finish than you can shake a stick at.

According to a recent podcast with Bethesda's Todd Howard, there are more than 200 possible endings. No, that's not a typo, there really are two zeros on that number.

Interplay Finally Looking To Produce Fallout Online

Interplay Finally Looking To Produce Fallout Online

Now all they need is the money. So far they have taken nearly 6 years to go from being $59 million in debt, to being only $3 million in debt, which is apparently an acceptably enough amount to start looking for investors in their last gambit.

Apparently a lot of the money that went towards paying off their debts came from Bethesda when they bought all of the Fallout intellectual property, with one exception, Fallout Online. Now they are begging, borrowing, and stealing to get the dough to make an MMOG or massive multiplayer online game.

For surprise hit Tangerine, iPhone the movie camera of choice

For surprise hit Tangerine, iPhone the movie camera of choice

Necessity is the mother of invention, but moviegoers were still astonished to hear that unexpected Sundance 2015 hit Tangerine was filmed entirely on iPhone. The high-energy, sharply comic, but also touching film wasn’t the first to rely on Apple’s smartphone, but with a theatrical release this week it’s perhaps the highest-profile. After an early screening in San Francisco, I sat down with Tangerine’s writer/director Sean Baker and co-screenwriter Chris Bergoch to find out how the iPhone helped shape a movie that at times can be as challenging to watch as it is rewarding.

Sources say WB knew Arkham Knight PC was horribly broken

Sources say WB knew Arkham Knight PC was horribly broken

The launch of Batman: Arkham Knight was a disaster, at least for PC owners. Now it might be even more of a PR disaster for publisher Warner Bros. Although the company issued an apology to owners and fans after pulling the game out of sales, it seems it might just be a well-worded cover up. Numerous sources, including the games' testers, are now saying that Warner Bros. was fully aware of the issues that the PC version faced, but decided to ship it at the same time anyway.

Mojang to close down Scrolls server July 2016

Mojang to close down Scrolls server July 2016

It has only been half a year since Minecraft creators Mojang unleashed its second big game to the public, and now it is announcing that it will no longer be actively developing the collectible card battle game Scrolls. To some extent, it isn't that surprising given how Scrolls paled in comparison to Mojang's real cash cow, Minecraft. But the announcement does call into question the profitability of such card games in general and perhaps even sparks some speculation regarding Mojang's future direction inside its new Microsoft mothership.

Well, today was the PlayStation Store's turn, as a banner ad for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PlayStation 4 was spotted on the mobile version of the North American Website. Oops.

Microsoft reports on its Superfish hunting trip

Microsoft reports on its Superfish hunting trip

Lenovo had a fish problem early this year, one that refused to die even when it was ignored. The Superfish adware fiasco left the world's biggest PC maker with mud on its face and an angry mob at its gates. While the scandal has seemingly died out, with Lenovo frantically moving to fix both the technical problems and PR fallout, not everyone is safe yet from the deadly fish. Now it's Microsoft's turn to give its users the weapon of knowledge to better arm themselves. Oh, and they are also providing an updated tool to remove Superfish.

This second Simpsons LEGO set will be the Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart (71016), and it'll also be released this May of 2015. As for another episode of The Simpsons matched with LEGO - that's looking a lot less likely.

Uber responds to Sen. Al Franken’s questions

Though facing more recent criticism, Uber is still dealing with the fallout from last month's various troubles. The hoopla had managed to attract the attention of Senator Al Franken, who sent the ridesharing service a letter expressing concerns about privacy, as well as a series of questions. Sen. Franken requested a response to his questions by December 15, and down to the deadline Uber has sent back a reply, saying it "welcomes the opportunity to respond".
