Fallout 76’s E3 2018 Poster Is Up And It Is Massive

A giant, three-panel Fallout 76 poster has been installed in Los Angeles just ahead of E3 2018. The mural, which apparently took multiple days to outfit, is located at the Figueroa Hotel in downtown Los Angeles very close to the Los Angeles Convention Center. It is one of the biggest and most recognisable locations for giant video game ads, which take over Los Angeles every year for E3.

It shows Vault Boy emerging from what appears to be Vault 76 with a smug look on his face and a strut in his step. He seems blissfully unaware of the irradiated horrors that lie before him.

A massive Spider-Man PS4 mural was already put up in Los Angeles for E3–see it here. We’re expecting to see many, many more giant video game posters in and around the Los Angeles Convention Center area soon, so keep checking back with GameSpot to see those.

Fallout 76 is a brand-new entry in Bethesda’s exceedingly popular franchise. Announced last week, Fallout 76 is still largely a mystery, as all we’ve seen of it so far is a teaser trailer that set the mood but did not reveal what kind of game it is. We’ll learn more about the game during Bethesda’s E3 2018 briefing very soon, but for now, here’s a rundown of everything we know about it so far.

Disclosure: The Figueroa Hotel appears to have an advertising deal with GameSpot parent company CBS. Additionally, CBS CEO Leslie Moonves is on the board of directors at ZeniMax Media, which owns Bethesda.

Guitar Hero Live Losing 200-Plus Songs

Activision resurrected the Guitar Hero franchise in 2015 with Guitar Hero Live, and one of the music game’s most interesting new features was Guitar Hero TV. Some songs in the online mode feature full-motion video as you play as a band’s lead guitarist in a first-person perspective. The better you perform, the more the crowd gets into it; miss a lot of notes and the crowd will start booing. It is weird and cool.

Activision announced in a forum post (via GI.biz) that Guitar Hero TV will close on December 1, with the servers shutting down. The mode features 200-plus songs that are exclusive to it, compared to 23 songs on the base game soundtrack, so losing Guitar Hero TV reduces the total number of playable songs significantly.

Songs rotate in and out, and you can spend real money on tokens to play any song whenever you want. Activision stopped selling in-game cash on June 1, but if you still have some, you can spend it up until the end date on December 1.

Activision removed Guitar Hero Live’s iOS edition on June 1, but if you already have it, you can continue to play. However, the app may break if you update your iOS software, Activision warned.

No new Guitar Hero games have been announced. Competitor Rock Band 4 came out around the same time as Guitar Hero Live. No Rock Band sequels are planned either, as developer Harmonix is treating the game as a platform that gets new songs but not necessarily sequels in the way that was popular during the heyday of guitar-based music games.

Vampyr Review – PlayStation Universe

From PlayStation Universe: “First impressions count for a lot, and Vampyr teetered on the brink of making a rotten one during its opening ten minutes. A crash before I even saw the splash screen, questionable visuals during the opening scene, and some iffy writing/delivery left me fearing the worst.”
