0 Skyrim: Dawnguard is out on Steam

This year's QuakeCon is going on right... now. If you haven't seen it yet, there is a Steam sale for all of ID and Bethesda's games. Fallout, Oblivion, Skyrim, Quake, Hexxen everything is lowered in prices.

That, and Bethesda is using the time to announce that the DLC for Skyrim, Dawnguard is out now. The vampire-centric add-on should cost $20, and for all i heard it is a lot of money for a DLC that introduces so little. Especially since Skyrim is on sale at the moment for only $25.

Ofcourse you can get it via the Steam Store.

2 Minecon 2012 held at Disneyland, Paris

Thanks to the success of Minecon last year, which took place in Las Vegas, Mojang decided to give it another try.

This year they will take Minecon to the wonderful country of France, in one of the biggest and pleasant amusement parks the world has to offer: Disneyland Paris.

I was going to say 'France and the city of love' but since it's not in the city nevermind. Plus i don't like most french people, sorry. :(

Announcement trailer underneath this line!

0 Bethesda supposedly bought rights Stalker

According to a Ukraine blogger called Galyonkin, claims that Bethesda has bought the rights for the Stalker franchise. Bought from GSC Game World former CEO Sergey Grigorovich.

The rumors are coming from Sergey Galyonkin (almost identical names to me), a blogger who previously leaked that Ukraine developer GSC Game World was closing its doors. Rumors say there is already a game going on in Bethesda town.

What studio will get the job is something Galyonkin doesn't know. He does know that it isn't a studio from Ukraine, and that it won't use the commonly known X-Ray engine used for all of the Stalker games, but a new one. It will be released on pc and console. Bethesda isn't commenting on the question.

Rumors of Bethesda's interest in Stalker we're already spreading in Russian media. But at the time there wasn't any talk about them using their own engine. Accordingly to Galyonkin, Grigorovich only sold the rights to the game itself. Still having the rights to the merchandise, books and films.

My opinion? Bethesda did it earlier with Fallout. And to be honest, although i'm a fan and i like a challenge, Stalker wasn't always good. And most of the time i wasn't good either. So somewhere in between would be a dream. A Stalker feeling with a more casual feel.
