March Madness is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. As I await the NCAA Tournament Selection show, I thought I’d point out that for the third year in a row, Bethesda Softworks is in The Escapist’s March Mayhem Developer’s Showdown — a fan-voted tournament featuring 64 of the biggest developers in gaming.
Beginning March 17th, you can vote on each round’s matchups, but this year they’ve also added a bracket where you can try to predict all the matchups before they happen (just like with the NCAA Tournament). Just make sure you register to participate.
In our first round matchup, we take on Twisted Pixel — makers of popular XBLA hits like The Maw and ‘Splosion Man. Discuss the matchup here. Meanwhile, Obsidian Entertainment (our friends working on Fallout: New Vegas), have a first round matchup against Sucker Punch — the guys known for creating inFamous and the Sly Cooper series.
Good luck to all the developers in this year’s bracket. We’ll keep you updated.
