  • Is Bethesda Working On Elder Scrolls 6? ….No skyrimSorry to pass on disappointment to everyone who has been assuming Bethesda Games is hard at work on the sixth Elder Scrolls game, but….they’re not. Marketing executive Pete Hines was asked two days ago on Twitter if the studio was hard at work on the next game, and he replied. To put the question being asked in context, Fallout 4 and Skyrim director Todd Howard made a recent comment that Bethesda was working on “three big and crazy projects.”
    “Are those big games gonna take away the focus from ES6?” asked Twitter-er Hot Shame.
    Hines replied, “We aren’t working on ES6 at ...
  • Enderal, The Biggest Skyrim Mod Of Them All, Comes This July enderalThere are mods, and then there’s Enderal, which promises to be the closest thing you can get to an actual Skyrim sequel without being one. It’s going to feature a new overworld and story, as well as new gameplay mechanics — all unique. The mod, first announced in 2013, took over three years to create.
    It’s being brought into existence by developer SureAI, famous for their previous gargantuan mod Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge. SureAI is promising you’ll get around 30 to 100 extra hours of gameplay from Skyrim with Enderal.
    Enderal couldn’t have come at a better time, now that a remastered ...

  • Fallout 4 Updates To 1.5.4 fallout 4A new patch is now out for Fallout 4, and here’s what it does. A bug was discovered in the Contraptions expansion (released three days ago) where players were losing weapon and armor mods or Legendary status when removing them from the armor and weapon racks; upon applying the patch that shouldn’t happen any longer. There was also a problem with the “Add Ons” menu in the PC version that showed the future expansions Vault-Tec Workshop and Nuka-World as being available….rest assured they are not yet.
    Bethesda’s full patch notes are below. Note that you will need this patch to run ...
  • Skyrim Remaster Will Be “As Next Gen As Possible” skyrim remasteredTo those who’ve been assuming that the port of Skyrim to current-gen systems like the PS4 and XBox One will just contain the regular-looking game at a higher framerate, think again. Bethesda is aiming to bring Skyrim on par with current graphical standards — or at least as close as they can get.
    As Bethesda’s Pete Hines told IGN, “We haven’t gotten into the full, ‘Here’s all the things we’re doing.’ But the basic idea is, in all the ways possible we’re trying to improve it and make it as next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible. Performance, effects, or ...
  • Fallout: New Vegas Now Compatible With XBox One fallout new vegasMicrosoft has been working diligently to increase the number of XBox 360 games that its XBox One game console can play. They’ve been adding new titles on a weekly basis, and this week it was Fallout: New Vegas’s turn. Originally released in 2010 as a stopgap spinoff of sorts between Fallouts 3 and 4, it proved popular enough to satisfy fans.
    If you’re still waiting for Fallout 3, you’re going to feel like quite the fool when I tell you that game was part of Microsoft’s initial list when backwards compatibility was introduced last November. But now Vegas joins it, and ...
  • Final Fantasy XV Director Reacts To Hardware Upgrades final fantasy xvDuring E3 last month Microsoft formally announced Project Scorpio, an advanced version of the XBox One with 4K output, VR support and “six teraflops of performance.” This announcement wasn’t a surprise to anyone who follows the company’s frequent leaks. In fact, the one person who DID find out about Scorpio from this presentation turned out to be…..Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy XV. Go figure.
    Tabata made an appearance at the conference to introduce FFXV, and as he was waiting backstage, the console’s teaser trailer was broadcast. “I was there waiting in the green room and I go ‘Ooh wow, what’s ...
  • E3 2016: How Many Hours Of Gameplay Does Final Fantasy XV Have? final fantasy xvHajime Tabata, director and head of development on Final Fantasy XV, has been asked before how many hours of gameplay the latest FF has within it. Now that the game is almost done, we have a definitive answer.
    Speaking during Square-Enix’s E3 livestream, Tabata told those watching that if they just completed the main game, if they just went in the directions the story told them to go and ignored any distractions…FFXV could be finished in around 40 hours. “In terms of clearing the main story, we’re anticipating about 40 to 50 hours of gameplay,” Tabata said. “So at the very ...
  • Final Fantasy XIV Might Be Coming To XBox One final fantasy xivIt had a rocky beginning, but Final Fantasy XIV has remained steady on Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and PC since 2013. Now Square’s MMO could be growing further, as rumor has it an XBox version of the game could finally become a possibility.
    What held up FFXIV’s release on XBox One was the lack of cross-platform play. Three years ago, it was unheard of on the console. Now, however, Microsoft is much more open to the idea and has already allowed it for several third-party games.
    “Microsoft actually approached the Final Fantasy 14 team about the cross-platform opportunity,” director Naoki Yoshida said ...
  • E3 2016: Dragon Quest VII For 3DS Almost Wasn’t Released Here dragon quest viiDragon Quest VII originally came out for the Playstation in 2001. Now a new version with upgraded visuals (and stereoscopic 3D) is heading to the 3DS this September, thanks to a localization partnership between Square and Nintendo.
    The Nintendo Treehouse spent a half-hour’s time with Dragon Quest VII at E3 along with members of the development team. One of the more interesting things they mentioned had nothing to do with the gameplay at all: this version of DQ VII almost never made it outside Japan.
