  • Fix On The Way For Skyrim’s Compressed Audio skyrimThose who have been playing the newly-released Skyrim Special Edition with headphones on the PC may have noticed some sound effects seem more janky than usual. After multiple users confirmed on Reddit they had the same problem, user LasurArkinshade looked into the code and found that, for an unknown reason, the sound files in the Special Edition are heavily compressed. (The original Skyrim used no sound compression.)
    If the Special Edition is obviously far larger in size than the original, why has the sound been compressed? More bizarre still, there is no report of the Playstation 4 edition of Skyrim having ...
  • Skyrim Is Going Portable On Nintendo Switch switchNintendo revealed its newest console this morning: the Nintendo Switch. Proving the rumors true, the Switch is a combination home console and handheld that features a detachable screen, and controllers that detach from that. A lineup of previously unrevealed games was shown on various screens while the usual gang of models frolicked and pretended to have a blast. Most were expected: a new Mario, a new Splatoon, a new Mario Kart. But then there was a real twist. Unexpectedly, one of the games shown first was Skyrim.
    Yup….Skyrim has been confirmed for the Switch! And this means that for the first ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Gets Into The Halloween Spirit halloweenElder Scrolls Online has just introduced its first holiday-themed event: The Witches Festival.
    Tamriel’s ancient autumn tradition, The Witches Festival, arrives on the 13th of Frostfall (October 13th), and so begins an annual clash of sorcery and religion. For the remainder of the month, demonologists, conjurors, lamias, warlocks, and thaumaturgists will convene in secret locations throughout the wilds of Tamriel to engage in all manner of incantations, invocations, and conjurations, and the profane creatures they create or summon may plague Tamriel for eons!
    So how does one play? First visit the Crown Store to get what you need (an item called ...
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: One Tamriel Arrives Next Week! Get All the Details Here! The Elder Scrolls Online has been a major success for Bethesda Softworks ever since it first launched for the PC and Mac in April 2014. In June 2015, the game made its jump to consoles to widen its audience and fanbase. That will continue later next week, as October 18 will see the console release for the latest update for The Elder Scrolls Online. Update 12 of the game has been dubbed One Tamriel by ZeniMax Online Studios, and this could very well be one of the best updates yet for franchise.
    Considering the hefty amounts gamers are constantly forced to ...
  • Here’s The System Requirements When Skyrim Upgrades special editionLater this month Bethesda will release the Special Edition of Skyrim featuring updated visuals taking advantage of the improved horsepower of the average chipset since 2011. And it being five years later, running the new version of the game is going to take a stronger PC. If you own the basic game and all the expansions (or just the Legendary Edition) you’ll be sent a free download code for the new version. But first, see if yours is up to these requirements….

  • Mod Support IS Coming to PS4 Skyrim After All modFirst bethesda announced their current console versions of Skyrim and Fallout 4 would be supporting fan mods. Then Sony said “not so fast, we aren’t quite comfortable with that” and forbade the planned feature. As of today you can mod Skyrim and Fallout’s Xbox One versions to your heart’s content, but not the PS4’s. And you can believe Microsoft has bragged about this.
    That bragging must have snapped a nerve, because Sony’s taken an about-face. Pivoting from their previous statement, Bethesda announced today Sony had changed their minds and was now allowing mods to be installed. (Well, most mods….those that use ...
  • Dragon Quest VIII On 3DS Will Carry A Different Soundtrack dragon quest VIIINintendo recently had to admit, though Square tried to keep everything about Dragon Quest VIII the same from its PS2 version, one thing is going to be different. (Please read the Roman numerals correctly: we’re talking about 8, which will be released in 2017, not 7, which just came out right now.)
    7 used MIDI music, but 8’s soundtrack was orchestral. And all those recordings took up a lot of space on the disc….space that isn’t available on a 3DS card. Nintendo is creating the English translation of Dragon Quest VIII, and they had to admit when it came down to ...
  • Could The Last Guardian Disappoint? last guardianA playable demo of The Last Guardian at TGS is being taken for a spin by reporters from the Net’s biggest gaming websites. This is the moment we’ve been waiting ten entire years for: what’s the game LIKE? Unfortunately, they’re all coming back with the same impression: The Last Guardian is frustrating.

    Neatly all of the reporters mentioned the pain of getting Trico to respond. Polygon’s Philip Kolar said. “Like a real dog, Trico often does what it wants, refusing to listen to your commands until it’s good and ready. On the one hand, there’s a clever nod to real interactions ...
  • Inside The Zero Escape Watch Problem zero escapeI know this is hard to believe, but Zero Time Dilemma is back in the news again. The game came out months ago, but there was one part of the release that took this long to process, and technically still isn’t resolved: the watch problem.
    For a limited time, a special edition of Zero Time Dilemma was offered on Amazon and Aksys Games’ website that came with a plastic replica of the watch worn by the game’s characters. Aksys had made similar offers with the previous two games, so they had experience…but for some reason, this time things went horribly wrong.
    The ...
  • Sony Introduces FFXV-Branded PS4 Slim ps4 slimAt the Tokyo Game Show this morning, Sony took the covers off a new model of the Playstation 4 Slim: a special version that has designs relating to the upcoming Final Fantasy XV. It’s not only prettier, it holds more: it’s the first PS4 Slim to come with a 1 TB hard drive instead of 550 GB
    Since we don’t always get these kinds of things, you’d be forgiven for assuming the FFXV PS4 Slim won’t be coming out in America. You’d be wrong. We ARE getting this version and everything that comes in it, but you’ll have to go to ...
