    As you can see, players will once again take control of characters Talion and Celebrimbor, though they have a falling out of sorts as the trailer notes.

  • Square’s Final Fantasy 15 PS4 Pro Patch Actually Makes The Game Worse final fantasy xvIf you have a PS4 Pro, you may be noticing a slight hiccup in the framerate of Final Fantasy 15. It’s the result of Square’s Version 1.05 patch, and there’s currently no fix.
    Here’s the problem: originally, Final Fantasy 15 could be played in two different graphical modes on the PS4 Pro: “Lite,” which ran in 1080p at a constant 30fps, and “High,” an option for owners of 4K televisions that bumped the resolution up to 1800p but with a stuttering framerate.
    With the update, the framerate on the Lite setting has been unlocked — but that doesn’t mean it moves at ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind: New Gameplay Trailer & Screenshots Feast your eyes on this returning visitor from the Bush and Britney Era….Morrowind is back and it’s had some work done! This addition to The Elder Scrolls Online adds the areas from Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, first released in 2002. We’re told the storyline will take place about 700 years before the events that happened in Elder Scrolls 3, but a lot of familiar areas haven’t changed much in seven centuries (except for the graphical boost).
    Thanks to the One Tamriel patch from last year, new players eager to explore Morrowind will be able to head to that area first without ...
  • Natsume Changes Mind, Releases Harvest Moon 64…On Wii U harvest moonOut of nowhere, Natsume has announced Harvest Moon 64 for the Wii U Virtual Console. This was one of the most demanded N64 games that has never been available before, and it’s coming ONE WEEK before Nintendo puts the Wii U to bed and launches their next console, the Switch. Questions abound: why now? Why not just wait to put it on the Switch? Does the Switch even have a Virtual Console yet? (At this late date, with no word from Nintendo, we’re guessing no.)
    Harvest Moon may have gotten started on the Super NES, but HM64 was the game that ...
  • New Limits Placed On Console Skyrim Mods Last year we embarked on the bold experiment of allowing modifications to Bethesda games on consoles. Sony said no, until Microsoft said yes — then Sony said yes with some conditions. While the XBox version was more lenient, both machines imposed limits on what you can do, making the PC still the top choice for Skyrim and Fallout 4 if you care about mods.
    Today, unfortunately, more limits were decreed. Previously mod installation was limited to the amount of space available, but as of the latest patch, there will also be a limit of how MANY mods can be installed at ...
  • Stardew Valley Is Coming To Retail April 11 stardew valleyOne year ago this month, Stardew Valley debuted on Steam and became an overnight success. Until recently it’s been a game exclusive to computers, but that will soon change when the PS4 and XBox One versions of the farming sim arrive on store shelves.
    And it’s not just the game! The Stardew Valley Collector’s Edition also packs a CD of the game’s soundtrack, a miniature version of the Stardew Valley Guidebook (the big version is sold here), and a map of Pelican Town. You get all this for below 30 dollars.
    This is not the final frontier — a version of Stardew ...
  • Tabata “Thinking About” PC Version Of Final Fantasy 15 final fantasy 15When Final Fantasy 15 launched last year, it was a console exclusive, and it still is. There is still no official word from Square on a PC version of the game. But director Hajime Tabata says he’s thinking about it!
    In a recent Famitsu interview, Tabata says “I’d like to release the game on PC as a technical attempt. I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines, and we personally would like to see it, too.”
    He’s also open to allowing mods on PC. “I would like to try developing on PC to pursue a unique way ...
  • Morrowind Expansion Coming To Elder Scrolls Online Earlier in the month, curious pokers inspecting the code of Elder Scrolls Online found what appeared to be data suggesting the future addition of Morrowind, the land of Elder Scrolls 3. Today we can confirm they were right.
    During the big announcement stream mentioned in the previous article, ZeniMax Online Studios revealed a Morrowind expansion for Elder Scrolls Online is coming. A new player class called The Warden will be introduced (they ride bears, as shown here) and a new player-vs-player mode called Battlegrounds will be added. If new players want to, they can leap into Vvardenfell (the Morrowind area) without ...
  • Another Big Look At Ni No Kuni 2 ni no kuni 2Bandai Namco, publisher of Ni No Kuni and its soon-to-exist sequel, showed off some gameplay footage from that sequel during a press conference this week. One of the new bits of information they revealed was that the art style would be slightly different. It’s nothing one would notice at first glance, but the game’s overworld has been rendered a bit more realistically than the last game’s was.
    We also know more about the story now, including the reason why King Evan, the boy monarch at the center of the plot, has been dethroned. Previously we assumed it was the work of ...
