  • ZeniMax Encourages ESO Players to Try Undaunted Daily Quests Undaunted ChestsIf all you know about Undaunted quests in ESO is that some players get scary monster masks from them, ZeniMax wants to change that. It has produced a guide to help those who haven’t tried the undaunted quests jump in.
    The guide explains how to sign up for the Undaunted quests, only available to level 45 and up characters, which involves signing a pledge to take on tough foes. There are two ranks for the pledges, the standard that open up at level 45 and the Veteran Rank pledges that are only available at Veteran Rank I.
    And it also goes into ...
  • Square Enix Confirms FFX/X-2 HD Remaster Coming to PS4 After trolling PlayStation Experience attendees over the weekend with a big Final Fantasy VII reveal that just turned out to be a port for PS4, not the HD remake nerds have long dreamed of, Square Enix is now on a porting roll.
    The company has today confirmed rumors that it will be releasing the remastered versions of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 HD on PS4 as well. There’s no indication that these will be anything other than the HD versions we’ve already seen on PS3 and Vita, though.
    Square Enix also released pricing for its PS4 ports. FFVII, in all ...
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Patches Out Awkward Silences, Gender Confusion and Other Bugs Dragon Age InquisitionYesterday, BioWare released a patch for Dragon Age: Inquisition that was intended to fix one of the more annoying bugs in the game.
    When you get the bug instead of having a snappy conversation and moving on to their next line the other player says their line and looks soulfully into your eyes, waiting for a response that you can’t make until the awkward silence is just too, too much. Usually you have to skip a line of dialogue to get out of it.
    The update also patches some more hilarious bugs dealing with gender, where at times the game will think ...
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Again The Witcher 3The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed once again.
    The ambitious open-world RPG’s release date has been moved from Feb. 24 to May 19, 2015. This is the second setback for Geralt’s third adventure, which was originally supposed to hit in May, 2014.
    CD Projekt Red released and open letter to fans explaining and apologizing for the decision:
    Dear Gamers,
    Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.
    The sheer size ...
  • New Trailer and Second Playable Character for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt The Witcher 3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtEO2xZ7BzQ
    At last week’s Game Awards, CD Projekt RED revealed a brand new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and hinted that one of the characters in the trailer would be playable in addition to Geralt.
    Our money is on the white-haired girl, who is apparently Ciri, the one Geralt mentions having elder blood in her veins. She seems to have the most developed combat moves and costume. It could be Geralt’s long-time ebony-haired squeeze Yennefer, as well, or the bro Geralt is broing it up with at the end. I hope it’s not the bro, he seems like a clone ...
  • Don’t Look For Fallout 4 News at Tonight’s Game Awards Fallout 3Hoping for some Fallout 4 news at tonight’s The Game Awards (formerly known as the VGAs)? Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s got a Brahmin’s chance in Deathclaw nest of happening.
    Bethesda spokesman Pete Hines crushed our hopes and dreams in a recent tweet:

    I'm getting asked a lot about this week and what we're doing. Going to VGX to support MachineGames. That's it. Not showing anything.
    — Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) December 3, 2014

    MachineGames makes Wolfenstein: The New Order. It’s kind of like Skyrim, with guns, but then take out the Skyrim.
    The awards start tonight at 9 p.m. ET. They aren’t televised ...

  • Zenimax Says It Will Have News About ESO on Consoles Next Year Working for this site, I check for Elder Scrolls Online news every day. And just about every day, I see one or more sites promoting fake release dates for ESO on consoles. It’s like a cottage industry of lies.
    Well, here we finally have some real news. ESO won’t be out this year on consoles. ZeniMax doesn’t even plan to make more major announcements about it until 2015. Yes, that is way past the six months they promised they’d have to wait after the PS4 and Xbox One versions missed their June launch date.
    This official announcement comes from Matt Firor’s The ...
  • Watch a Group Beat ESO’s Toughest Encounter Dragonstar Arenahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzMabKVMC1w
    This Veteran Dragonstar Arena run from Deltia of Deltia’s Gaming shows his group finishing off what he ranks as the hardest four-player encounter in the game.
    Deltia’s tank gets the final kill of the encounter. He’s muted the audio with music because he admits he swore for a solid three minutes during the tough fight.
    What do you think? Is their a harder challenge for a four-player group? What’s the toughest challenge in the game overall? Let us know in our forum.
  • Marvel and Star Wars Characters Could End Up in Kingdom Hearts III One silver lining to the House of Mouse buying up everything in sight is that at least it’s easier for some of our dream mashups to happen.
    We’ve seen Marvel characters interacting with Disney characters in Disney Infinity, and now Tai Yasue, co-director and game designer of Kingdom Hearts 3, has hinted Disney’s Star Wars, Marvel and general cartoon lines might collide with Square Enix characters in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts sequel.
    “They’re all under consideration,” he told Kotaku. “Nothing’s off-limits, we’re considering all of the worlds. There are so many wonderful concepts. We’re happy about that, but at the same ...
  • Dragons and Mechs Mingle in New Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF1IUmP3534
    I think this new trailer for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is meant to try to explain all of the factions and military actions that serve as the backstory for the game.
    I say I think, because I came away from it even more confused. There’s some dictator guy that dresses like M. Bison and rants about new world orders. And he’s, I’m going to day, bad? Maybe?
    But it’s a beautiful confusion, as it gives us a look at a game world where mechs and cold war propaganda and dragons comingle like it ain’t no thang. And although the ...
