Game changer - Bethesda schooled the industry with Fallout 4's reveal

Sometimes the hype surrounding a game can outshine and eclipse the news of its actual release, even if it hasn't been officially announced. As an extreme example, Half-Life 3 has to be the most wanted game of the last decade, yet we know nothing about it, hell, we don't even know if we are ever to play Half-Life 3 yet Valve have the most valuable marketing tool they could every achieve: hype.

But at least Valve hasn't tormented us by announcing Half-Life 3, which is more than can be said for many publishers out there. Nintendo decided to show us Zelda on Wii U before cruelly snatching it away from us. BioShock Infinite went through years of interminable delays, to say nothing of Duke Nukem Forever. And don't get us started on Mass Effect: Andromeda, which EA dangled in front of us before spending an age talking about a poxy Minions tie-in. Hype is good, but firing us up too early can be absolutely awful.

Thankfully Bethesda are doing things differently, and more importantly, revealing games right.

Game changer - Bethesda schooled the industry with Fallout 4's reveal

GamesRadar recently spoke with Bethesda's Pete Hines asking why Bethesda decided to announce Fallout 4 at E3 allowing themselves only a 5 month window to the November 10th release limiting any time to create a buzz.

Dying Light's Destiny pisstake turns into a full-on free DLC campaign

Yesterday, Techland decided to poke fun at Destiny's Red Bull partnership with a fun little Twitter promotion, whereby Dying Light players could get free DLC by posting pictures of themselves drinking a glass of water.

Like everything in Dying Light, though, things have escalated quickly. What started as a tongue-in-cheek dig has turned into a full-on campaign of unlockable free content!

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 behind-the-scenes and gameplay trailer

It's not my intention to make anybody feel old but I have to indicate that it has been 13 years since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 was released. My personal favourite has to be Pro Skater 2 (Playstation, 2000) where I literally spent hours upon hours in the hanger performing such tricks as the 360 Roastbeef or the Madonna.

In fact add to that the amount of time I also spent on Dave Mirra Freestlye BMX has me thinking 2000 was a pretty energetic year for me without stepping foot outside.

Planetside 2 brings epic battles to PS4

When you're announcing that the biggest and most insanely satisfying battles on the internet have arrived on PS4, nothing less than a launch trailer backed by Eagles Of Death Metal will do.

It came to make a bang, yeah. Just watch it and behold the immense three-way battles between hundreds of infantry, tanks and aircraft that make Planetside 2 one of the best free-to-play titles of all time.

And, naturally, make sure to join the Terran Republic to fight for honour and glory. Not those New Conglomerate reprobates or devastatingly stylish Vanu. Download it here, but be aware that some server issues are still being sorted out.
