Before we get into any gaming news, I’d like to just say thanks to all of the veterans out there who have risked their lives to fight for our freedom, and also to those that are currently doing so. It’s always nice to be able to express our gratitude to the brave men and women who fight for this country. Now, let’s talk about the business at hand. In today’s Gaming Daily: an epic 50 vs. 50 Fallout 4 battle hit the web, the finale to Telltale Games‘ Game of Thrones series is coming next week, Call of Duty: Black Ops III had a big launch, The Dan Cave covered everything you need to know about Fallout 4, and Xbox One Preview members will be getting a special gift.
Epic Fallout 4 50 vs. 50 battle.
Well, that didn’t take long. YouTube user, Tyrannicon–who’s known for creating a massive 50 vs. 50 battle in Skyrim, as well as our very own Skyrim at the Movies—has done it again. This time, it’s down with Bethesda‘s latest masterpiece, Fallout 4. This epic skirmish pits 50 raiders vs. 50 synth in a battle to the death. It’s actually not surprising to see who comes out on top, but see it for yourself in the clip above.
I seriously can’t wait for the PC community to create some crazy mods. The things the internet comes up with always seem to exceed my expectations. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing interesting videos about this game hitting YouTube.
I hope everyone is enjoying the game. I have yet to complete it, but I’ve seen quite a bit of what the game has to offer in the 30 hours that I’ve played in the last couple of weeks. Don’t forget to check out our own Malik Forté‘s review.
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series finale coming next week.
This season of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series is coming to an end next week, on November 17. It will be available on most platforms, including mobile. Those who’d rather go with a physical copy can pick up the disc that includes all of the episodes, 1-6, on the same date. Now you have no excuse to go out and experience this excellent title.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III has a huge launch.
It seems like Call of Duty is nowhere near being dead. After the last two entries in the franchise didn’t sell as well as their predecessors, Black Ops III has bucked the trend, and could be the best selling game in the franchise since Black Ops 2. Activision did not give specific numbers, but revealed that the game made a whopping $550 million in its first 3 days. Holy cow, that’s a lot of cash.
It’s strange that exact sales numbers weren’t revealed, but it did make an impressive amount of money. According to Sony, it was the best selling digital game on its first day of release. It’s now obvious that Sony made the right move in securing the early DLC for the PS4. Despite not reviewing the game, I have played the title a whole lot and can tell you that it’s the best CoD in a long time. Ignore all the haters.
The Dan Cave covers everything you need to know about Fallout.
Yeah, Fallout 4 is out in the wild, and I assume you’ve already spent countless hours ignoring all your responsibilities and loved ones to play the game. But, you may not know all the lore of this world. So, today’s The Dan Cave covers everything you need to know about the series. This will be useful to those new to the series, or even to those that just need a refresher on the lore. You can watch the whole episode right above.
Xbox One Preview members will be getting a gift.
Tomorrow, November 12, is a huge day for Microsoft, as they will be rolling out the new Xbox One interface, and even launching the 104 backwards compatible games. Both of these are significant updates that will be changing the way you interact with the X1. Those that have been part of the preview program have already been using the new dashboard for quite some time, and Microsoft may be planning something special for those users that have helped them test out the new interface.
Unfortunately, the tweet from Xbox’s Mike Ybarra (pictured above) doesn’t reveal much about what will be given away. I suspect maybe a free BC game, or maybe even a theme for the console. I’ve played with the new dashboard a bit, and it’s much snappier than the sluggish live tiles that are currently on the Xbox One. Tomorrow should be fun for Xbox gamers.
That’s it for today, ladies and gents. You can now go back to playing Fallout 4… or spending time with your family. Make sure to keep it here for all of your nerdy needs. Did you buy Black Ops 3? Are you enjoying it? Let us know in the comments below.
