  • Will The Elder Scrolls Online Be Worth the Money? TESO SiegeThe Elder Scrolls Online is only a few days away from the official launch April 4, and that’s the question people are still asking. Bethesda is still defending its choice to go with a subscription model.
    Bethesda’s Global Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations, Pete Hines, recently told Games.On.Net that the decision to charge a $15-a-month subscription fee was a mutual Bethesda and Zenimax decision.
    “It would be fair to say it was a mutual decision,” said Hines. “It wasn’t like they decided it, and we didn’t mandate it. There was a lot of conversation around it.”
    “I worry about it,” admits ...
  • Spice Up Skyrim With Epic Gameplay Overhaul Epic Gameplay Overhaulhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB0p5VvngpI
    Epic Gameplay Overhaul is a collection of mods by ApolloDown, all together in one package for convenience. The overall effect of the package on Skyrim is drastic.
    The collection includes:
    Dragon Combat Overhaul: This mod promises any dragon you encounter will be “a fearsome beast that will do anything it can to kill you,” by changing up the AI and giving the dragon’s new abilities.
    Civil War Overhaul: This mod restores cut content from Skyrim’s civil war and adds consequences to how you do in battles. You can even lose the whole war.
    Fire and Ice Overhaul: More natural and dynamic fire and ice ...
  • Choose Your The Elder Scrolls Online Campaign Now Alliance War Concept ArtAhead of this weekend’s early access launch, Zenimax has released the names of the campaigns for The Elder Scrolls Online so players can make their picks and start planning early for the Alliance War PVP. It’s kind of like a late March Madness, but with siege weapons.

    Bloodthorn
    Scourge
    Chrysamere
    Auriel’s Bow

  • Skyrim Vs. The Elder Scrolls Online Round 2, Windhelm Windhelmhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJqQMk1vjyU
    If you’re interested in how the locations from Skyrim look in The Elder Scrolls Online, this new video from IGN is well worth checking out. They take a side-by side look at Windhelm.
    Personally, the original version simply looks more grander and more full of character to me, but it’s easy to see that some of the changes, like larger areas, were made to better suit the needs of an MMORPG.

  • Experience Life as a Godless Killing Machine in Bear Simulator Bear Simulatorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5rJk6tLRCw
    There are a lot of games out there that claim to be “like Skyrim” and frankly I just ignore them. They inevitably are not that very much like Skyrim. But this game claims to be “like a mini Skyrim but you’re a bear.” And I can’t ignore that.

    Bear Simulator by Farjay Studios has met its Kickstarter goal, so the chance of romping through the woods in first person as one of the number one threats to America is high.

    Bear Simulator will feature “exploring, eating fish and plants, striking down anything that dare stand before your might, increasing your stats, sleeping ...

  • Take a Fresh Look at Bruma in the Beyond Skyrim Mod Beyond Skyrimhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCRWN2Emgbw
    One of the things that seems to excite Skyrim modders the most is the idea of seeing other parts of Tamriel in Skyrim. That’s the button this Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil Bruma teaser pushes, and it pushes it hard.
    The Beyond Skyrim modders at DarkCreations intend to start with Bruma and piece-by-piece bring all of Cyrodiil into the game. The mod will feature new quests, creatures, and dungeons, and a storyline about Cyrodiil set at the time of Skyrim. From the description:
    “This is only a small first taste of the larger project Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil – The Seat of Sundered Kings, an ...
  • The Elder Scrolls Online Updates Cause Mod Controversy Foundry Tactical CombatIn advance of the game’s imminent release, The Elder Scrolls Online team announced a number of new updates to the game. Most of these fix pesky bugs or improve balancing or usability. But there’s one that might nerf certain mods.
    A new version of the Elder Scrolls Online API takes away the ability to see information about what others are doing to your character, such as what spells they are casting.
    The move appears to be at least in part a fairness issue, because it is possible players with UI mods could gain an advantage by viewing extra info about what the ...
