  • According to Bethesda, All Existing Mods Will Work With Skyrim Remastered skyrim remasteredE3 broke the news that Skyrim was coming to current-gen consoles, and that mods would be allowed. Presumably, all existing mods would have to be ported or reconfigured to work with the new versions, right? …Wrong. Bethesda says they should all work with no modifications. Pete Hines, who works for the company, was asked this question on Twitter and replied “Basically, yes.”
    Quite the feat if they can pull it off. But does the mod community agree it could happen? For the most part they do.
    “The only thing that will need porting/updating is Skyrim Script Extender,” says MichaGhost, who’s working on ...
  • E3 2016: New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Reveals Playstation VR Function final fantasy xvTonight during Sony’s E3 presentation, Square’s solitary trailer revealed Final Fantasy XV will be compatible with Playstation VR….however, it doesn’t look like they mean the full game. It’s doubtful they would have had time to rewire everything to fit the new device anyway, so they’ve thrown in a few minigames and tasks that can be rendered on the goggles.
    Using Playstation VR you can play as Prompto, one of Noctis’s friends, in “Final Fantasy XV: VR Experience,” or what looks to be a special area meant for practice monster battling. We saw more of their mechanic friend Cidney here than we’ve ...
  • E3 2016: First Big Look At Platinum Games’ Scalebound The E3 conference from Microsoft felt mostly underwhelming, except for the part where the president of Platinum Games came on stage and said “This is the largest boss battle we’ve ever created.” If you’re familiar with Platinum’s past work, which always goes for the extreme, this is quite the statement. I immediately sat up.
    We haven’t seen much of Scalebound since its introduction two E3s ago — they were biding their time, waiting to spring this great scene upon us. It was a co-op battle where four players riding dragons took turns whittling away the HP of an IMMENSE crab-creature in ...
  • E3 2016: Yes It’s True, Gwent Is Going Solo gwentA week ago, a European trademark filing was spotted that pointed to the creation of a stand-alone title for Gwent, the card game previously playable only within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It was legit: today during Microsoft’s E3 conference, the first trailer appeared.
    Gwent: The Witcher Card Game works a lot like other card-collecting apps. Online card duels will be supported cross-platform between consoles and the PC. This feature, however, is rare: Gwent will also contain a single-player Campaign Mode. Gameplay is pretty much Gwent — if you’ve played the game in Witcher 3, you should be ready to play ...
  • E3 2016: Newly Revealed Battle Scene From Final Fantasy XV final fantasy xvFew people were expecting Final Fantasy XV’s first E3 appearance to be during the Microsoft conference, but that’s what happened. We expect much more of this game to be shown during Sony’s conference later this evening, but for now, enjoy this fight against a giant hand.

    This was one of two battles against gargantuan titans shown off during Microsoft’s presentation, the other one belonging to Scalebound (we’ll be getting to that game soon). Despite its scale, this behemoth must not be very strong if it can be taken down by a miniscule Noctis repeatedly stabbing its hand.
    As for the context of ...
  • E3 2016: Three More Add-Ons Revealed For Fallout 4 fallout 4Fallout 4 isn’t finished yet! Bethesda showed off three additional expansions for the game beyond Far Harbor (previously believed to be the “last” DLC). Here’s what they do….
    Expansion #4 is called “Contraptions” and will be released next week. It expands your building abilities with tracks, conveyor belts, and elevators, allowing you to construct absurd Rube Goldberg-style chain-reaction devices. Following this will be “Vault-Tec Workshop,” an expansion that will let players create their own massive vaults, and within those vaults, the sinister ability to experiment on DWELLERS. Mwahahahaha!
    The third DLC, “Nuka World,” will come out in August. It could be the ...
  • E3 2016: Skyrim Coming To PS4 And XBox One skyrimIt’s been a long time since we’ve been able to report on news relating to this site’s namesake, but today’s the day.
    Bethesda revealed the news during their E3 press conference tonight: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is coming to current-gen consoles! Of course it’ll be remastered, polished and pretty, but you’ll be able to make it prettier (or weirder, depending)….because mods will be allowed as well! Also coming for the ride is the entirety of downloadable content released to date.
    Here’s the footage Bethesda showed everyone. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition is coming to Playstation 4 and XBox One on October ...
  • E3 2016: First Big Look At Mass Effect Andromeda mass effect andromedaElectronic Arts showed off a two-minute video showcasing the progress of their Mass Effect Trilogy follow-up, Mass Effect Andromeda, today during their EA Play conference.
    Unfortunately Mass Effect Andromeda is still too far away to attach a release date (2017 is the vague promise), but we got a great look at the various worlds that await players by then, as well as some half-second peeks at the creative process behind the game.
    As BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn explained, “you are the alien” in the Andromeda galaxy — while past Mass Effect games have taken place in well-colonized areas where the various ...
  • New Let’s Play Show Total War: Warhammer DLC Final Battle Despite beliefs to the contrary, video game developers do post official Let’s Plays of their titles. Often with a specific purpose or goal. Whether it be to highlight a specific story element, show off gameplay, or just impress, they do do them.
    For SEGA and Creative Assembly, and their title Total War: Warhammer, they decided to release a Let’s Play showing off one of the final battles in the Chaos Warriors DLC. This is deep into the game, and potentially spoilerish, so you have been warned.
    “Archaeon may be the Everchosen, but to the Chaos God Tzeentch – Changer of the Ways – nothing ...
  • Square-Enix’s 2016 E3 Schedule squareJust like Nintendo, Square-Enix will be running a livestream presentation of its games throughout the E3 event. I’ll tell you ahead of time that there is no Kingdom Hearts 3 listed here — every game is one that’s close to completion (which makes sense….you don’t want an unfinished game freezing up due to a bug in front of everyone, which has happened). You WILL get to see live plays of Final Fantasy XV, Star Ocean 5, Dragon Quest Builders, World of Final Fantasy, I Am Setsuna and more.
    To watch the livestream during E3, head to Square’s YouTube or Twitch channels..
    Monday, ...
