  • New Limits Placed On Console Skyrim Mods Last year we embarked on the bold experiment of allowing modifications to Bethesda games on consoles. Sony said no, until Microsoft said yes — then Sony said yes with some conditions. While the XBox version was more lenient, both machines imposed limits on what you can do, making the PC still the top choice for Skyrim and Fallout 4 if you care about mods.
    Today, unfortunately, more limits were decreed. Previously mod installation was limited to the amount of space available, but as of the latest patch, there will also be a limit of how MANY mods can be installed at ...
  • Stardew Valley Is Coming To Retail April 11 stardew valleyOne year ago this month, Stardew Valley debuted on Steam and became an overnight success. Until recently it’s been a game exclusive to computers, but that will soon change when the PS4 and XBox One versions of the farming sim arrive on store shelves.
    And it’s not just the game! The Stardew Valley Collector’s Edition also packs a CD of the game’s soundtrack, a miniature version of the Stardew Valley Guidebook (the big version is sold here), and a map of Pelican Town. You get all this for below 30 dollars.

  • Tabata “Thinking About” PC Version Of Final Fantasy 15 final fantasy 15When Final Fantasy 15 launched last year, it was a console exclusive, and it still is. There is still no official word from Square on a PC version of the game. But director Hajime Tabata says he’s thinking about it!
    In a recent Famitsu interview, Tabata says “I’d like to release the game on PC as a technical attempt. I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines, and we personally would like to see it, too.”
    He’s also open to allowing mods on PC. “I would like to try developing on PC to pursue a unique way ...
  • Morrowind Expansion Coming To Elder Scrolls Online Earlier in the month, curious pokers inspecting the code of Elder Scrolls Online found what appeared to be data suggesting the future addition of Morrowind, the land of Elder Scrolls 3. Today we can confirm they were right.
    During the big announcement stream mentioned in the previous article, ZeniMax Online Studios revealed a Morrowind expansion for Elder Scrolls Online is coming. A new player class called The Warden will be introduced (they ride bears, as shown here) and a new player-vs-player mode called Battlegrounds will be added. If new players want to, they can leap into Vvardenfell (the Morrowind area) without ...
  • Another Big Look At Ni No Kuni 2 ni no kuni 2Bandai Namco, publisher of Ni No Kuni and its soon-to-exist sequel, showed off some gameplay footage from that sequel during a press conference this week. One of the new bits of information they revealed was that the art style would be slightly different. It’s nothing one would notice at first glance, but the game’s overworld has been rendered a bit more realistically than the last game’s was.
    We also know more about the story now, including the reason why King Evan, the boy monarch at the center of the plot, has been dethroned. Previously we assumed it was the work of ...

  • So Much Fire Emblem Is Coming Your Way fire emblemIt’s never been a better time to be into Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series. This week the company unveiled a total of FOUR upcoming titles during a special livestream event.
    First they revealed the next 3DS game, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. The game is a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second FE game ever released, back in the days of the NES/Famicom. American and European audiences never got this game, and it’s somewhat different from what FE fans in the West are used to. There are dungeon-crawling sections, and the difficulty is higher. When Fire Emblem echoes is released, ...
  • Atlus Bringing Utawarerumono Games To The West UtawarerumonoIt’s quite a mouthful: “Utawarerumono.” It’s pronounced the way it’s spelled, but it’s better to read with the syllables separated: Uta-wa-re-ru-mono. Atlus is currently translating two PS4 games under that name to bring them to America later this year.
    Utawarerumono is a franchise spanning games, manga and anime, but it started as a game: a visual novel released back in 2002. There was no visual novel market in America, so we never got our own version of it….but the manga and anime were translated anyway. This will be the first time Utawarerumono is seen around these parts in interactive form.
    These games ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online May Be Getting Vvardenfell Soon An Elder Scrolls Online fan has gone datamining through the latest version of the game and believes he knows what region Bethesda is going to be adding next: Vvardenfell from Elder Scrolls Morrowind.
    Redditor “FloorBelow” has found tilesets within the code for Hiaalu, Redoran, Telvanni, Vivec and Molag Mar, as well as data for Dwemer ruins and Dunmer strongholds. From his post:
    That covers pretty much every architectural style in Morrowind, except for Imperial towns and castles, which don’t exist since Morrowind isn’t an Imperial colony yet. Oddly, Seyda Neen does exist, and is using custom assets that make it look exactly ...
