New Game From Bethesda – Dishonored
Bethesda today announces a new game to join the myriad of other amazing games that the company has released over the years - Dishonored!!
Maimings And Suicides – Officially Launched!
Maimings and Suicides, is a comic from one of our old contributors, Philip Pawlega! Philip has been throwing around the idea of a comic back when we we're Review District, but after we decided to scrap Review District and relaunch as ReviewTheory, that idea got placed on the back burner.
Review: Vampires Suck
Vampires Suck is a movie in the same genre of the Scary Movies franchise, except it fails to make you laugh throughout the whole movie. It is definitely no Hot Tub Time Machine and in a world where there are so many other funny movies, releasing a sub par comedy flick isn't gonna do it.
Review: Dinner For Schmucks
One of the biggest comedy movies of the summer, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd are hilarious together. Check out our review of a movie with many ups and downs, and join the characters as they find out that they really can be best friends.
Review: Sherlock Holmes
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law bring Sherlock Holmes and Watson to the big screen is a brilliant performance that shouldn't be missed. Definitely something you will wanna see in the theaters.
Yesterday at 11:05AM EST, Bethesda posted an image to their Twitter Page with the caption, “Tomorrow“. Some sites picked up on the vague post, and judging by the picture you can tell that it isn’t from Skyrim. Many people thought it was a teaser for a new Fallout game (Fallout MMO?), however earlier today Bethesda launched a website for the new game and announced it’s name.
Check after the break for more information and a YouTube video!
Remember that game from Bioware that came out right before Mass Effect 2? It was called Dragon Age: Origins. It was an awesome game, and Bioware has created a lot of cool DLC for the game. The last DLC, of which is called Witch Hunt, obviously follows the Witch in your group, Morrigan.
The game was cool, and I’ve recently begun playing it again when I heard Dragon Age 2 is coming out (Obviously, this will be a Trilogy.)
I don’t want to give out any more information, but it will be released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and will cost ya about $6.99, go check out the website for this DLC.
There is a new rumor running around, that Apple may be adding iAds to books downloaded on from their iBooks store. While this would mean a continuous cash flow from books, even after you buy the book, it also means you may see a splash of color at the bottom of your books.
One good thing about this could mean that Books that would normally cost you 10 bucks, may be brought down in price with the promise of ad clicks and revenue from them. But, who would want ads in their books? I know I wouldn’t. I’m all for people finding new and inventive ways to make money, however adding ads to a book shouldn’t be one way.

Shameless plug for the site, I know, however I was looking at our site statistics the other day and realized that the site is indeed on the rise with visitors, as a result I thought I’d mention that we DO in fact have a Twitter page.
What happened to the Facebook page? Well, I thought to much out of the bat would bad, especially if I can’t keep everything updated (I run this site alone, but am currently trying to get others to help out.), however don’t be sad as I will be working on the Facebook page and try to get a Website to Facebook and Twitter to Facebook thing working out before the end of the year.
Speaking of end of the year, current I am working on a redesign of the site that now only moves the content on the site even higher, but will place the most recent post above the featured posts.
Thank you, though for visiting the site and I can promise that in the coming weeks ReviewTheory will begin to become a big website… I hope.
Uh-oh. While looking for a new Ad Website, I happened to stumble across Chikita. While looking through their blog, I noticed this interesting post about Google’s Android. Looking at this graph, you may say “That just means more Android Apps have ads!” however, from this graph you see something VERY interesting.
Android user’s are more likely to click on an ad then iPhone and iPad users. While, yes, combined Apple’s userbase is more valuable then Google’s operating system, however when you realize that there are three different Apple products out there, this becomes that much more impressive. So, that means people with apps for Android can make more money then people with apps for iPhones and iPads.
Google has really been in the news recently, and it is for good reason. They’ve just been updating things left and right. The newest thing to feel the update fever has been the mobile version of Google Finance and believe me, it needed a good update.

CNET has learned something interesting happening to Gmail, it seems that Google has been testing Gmail Call, where you can have the ability to call any phone, both in the US and Canada, for free. Google already lets you do this with Google Voice, however that requires you have a cell phone, as it calls your phone and then the person your calling. With this, you can just place the call and use the Mic and Speakers on your laptop or desktop and talk to someone.
It’s been almost 2 years since we got the launch of Wrath of the Lich King in you United States and elsewhere in the world, and it has garnered huge success for Blizzard and continued the great questing and gaming that everyone knows and loves in the World of Warcraft.
China is due out to get it August 31st, having finally changed enough to be allowed a release date by the Chinese Government. Funny thing is, with them just now getting Wrath, the rest of the world is still eagerly awaiting the release of WoW: Cataclysm.
Be sure to check out our future article, Star Wars: The Old Republic Vs. World of Warcraft, which will be written and posted on Friday.

Aside from a little paragraph explaining what happened, there’s not much else about it. Yahoo is now being powered by Bing search results, something that has been being worked on for sometime. This is a relationship that will likely be benefitial to both sides, mostly Microsoft because it means Bing! will be getting a part of the userbase of the Yahoo Search and will be getting money from the ads being placed.
Still, I would much rather either use Google or go to the Bing! website itself, instead of using Yahoo to show me Bing! results.

The gaming giant retailer Gamestop is boasting that its new store is the store of tomorrow. Hell of a boast, but it might be the truth. Their new stores will be fully updated, including kiosks to purchase DLC for either your Xbox 360 or PS3. What makes this appealing is that fact that you can earn rewards and achievements for walking into the store and purchasing things.
The way it works is you go to the one of the Kiosks and browse. Once you find what you are looking for, you will be asked to swipe your rewards card for Gamestop, think the Edge card but on steroids. You make your purchase and out pops a code that you put into the Claim a Code window on your Xbox 360 or PS3 when you get home.
Not only that, but they are also have plans to increase their online business model. This is all kind of exciting and hopefully they will be revamping old stores too.
According to CNET, it seems that Microsoft is gearing up to perma-ban the people that not only hacked their servers and got the Halo: Reach game off of them, but for those who are also playing them right now, well before the release of the much anticipated game and last Halo one at that, or so we’re told.
The wonderful people over at Joystiq not only did a preview with what they saw at Gamescom, but they have a nice Rock Band 3 Trailer up on their site. It definitely makes you want to play the game that much more, especially with the new Keyboards being featured so prominitely. Click below for the link to the video.
The cool guys over at Droid-Life pointed out in a news post that Flash 10.1 is available to Android 2.2 phones in the Android Market, except it was only for Root users. However, if you want Flash on your non-root phone that has Android 2.2, then head on over to Droid-Life where they have the APK file hosted!
It’s that time of week again, time for the Movie Weekend Wrap-Up for this weekend! This weekend saw quite a few new movies, with some shockers in there. And next week, we’re gonna prolly see Avatar in the number one spot again, however if the Expendables have shown anything, its that word of mouth might be more powerful then special 3D blue aliens.
