The Big Bad Wolf
The Bethesda-Marketing-Machine (tm) is talking about Wolfenstein this week. This trailer has gotten a bit of a reaction… and I don’t just mean to the cool Road Trip music!
Some big news for eternity this week. Obsidian are partnering with Paradox Entertainment to help get Eternity out there. The partnership doesn’t effect the game, its still all Obsidian's, under their control, and they still fully own the IP - it just means they don’t have to bother with all of the messy publisher crap.
They also still expect the game to be released this year. Woot!
Tanks for the memories
We mentioned some time ago that Obsidian were recruiting staff to work on some sort of “MMO”. Well now we know what it is… From their official website:
’’We’re thrilled to announce Armored Warfare, a new free-to-play massively multiplayer online tactical military video game that puts you in control of some of the most incredible, modern destructive machines to grace a battlefield.

The 1964/65 Worlds fair in Flushing Meadows is notable not just because of the funny name, or because it was a financial disaster, or its role in the Men In Black movies… But because the future was underground homes:
“The realities of living in the Cold War made us ask "How can we survive a nuclear blast?" The Underground Home showed us it was possible to live comfortably beneath the ground before - and after - the bomb. Join us at this least seen of all World's Fair pavilions in a wonderful Feature presented by Bill Cotter.”— 1965 Guidebook
