  • Why The Elder Scrolls Online Was Rated M by the ESRB The Elder Scrolls Online Siege
    The earlier announcement of the rating was probably no surprise as it’s the same rating as Skyrim, but it’s interesting to see the justification for such things. According to the Entertainment Software Ratins Board’s recently released official synopsis, it looks as if violence, drunkenness, and some really awkward sexual innuendo sealed the deal.
    This is a multiplayer online role-playing game in which players assume the role of a warrior in the fantastical world of Nirn. As players explore open-world environments, they can perform various quests and complete tasks. Characters use swords, arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., lightning, fire attacks) to kill ...

  • Do Mages Have Less Fun in Skyrim? Skyrim Mage MageDoes Bethesda hate mages? A recent article, where The Escapist’s Shamus Young makes just that point, is worth reading and discussing.
    Young lists several points to support his theory, from mage robes being “stupid and boring,” to destruction skills not scaling with skill level.
    “I’ve leveled numerous mages and numerous fighters. There’s no comparison. Melee isn’t just slightly ahead of magic. It’s massively, outrageously more powerful, safer, more expedient, more thrilling, and more profitable. Going from fighter to mage has a bigger impact on difficulty than the actual difficulty slider. As a fighter you’ll kill faster, have less between-fight downtime, see more ...

  • Fallout 4? Don’t Hold Your Breath Fallout 4If you love Skyrim, there’s a chance you might have sampled Bethesda’s other first-person RPG series and are hungry for more modern Fallout. Rock Paper Shotgun’s Nathan Grayson, showing some admirable pluck, recently tried to pin down Bethesda game Director Todd Howard, and it looks like your belly is going to rumble a little while longer.
    “We don’t ,” Howard tokd Grayson, “but I think it’s gonna be a while.”

  • Soar Through the Northern Ashlands in New Skywind Mod Trailer Skywind Ashlandshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTSj00dDCrw
    I’ve been following the Skywind mod for a while now, and I don’t think any of the videos released so far have shown its potential better than this nearly finished look at the revamped Northern Ashlands. It’s just gorgeous, and it promises to get even better as the mod advances.
    “Still a work in progress, and everything is subject to change. Keep in mind, many models are place holders and the ash will be darkened. I was also experimenting with the Dragonborn weather types, they too are not final,” wrote SquallyDaBeanz, the Skywind mod team member who uploaded the video.
    The mod ...
