  • 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 ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online May Be Getting Vvardenfell Soon An Elder Scrolls Online fan has gone datamining through the latest version of the game and believes he knows what region Bethesda is going to be adding next: Vvardenfell from Elder Scrolls Morrowind.
    Redditor “FloorBelow” has found tilesets within the code for Hiaalu, Redoran, Telvanni, Vivec and Molag Mar, as well as data for Dwemer ruins and Dunmer strongholds. From his post:
    That covers pretty much every architectural style in Morrowind, except for Imperial towns and castles, which don’t exist since Morrowind isn’t an Imperial colony yet. Oddly, Seyda Neen does exist, and is using custom assets that make it look exactly ...
  • Skyblivion: Oblivion In Skyrim! skyblivionWhat do you get when the worlds of Skyrim and Oblivion combine? Skyblivion, that’s what. A group of modders known as the TES Renewal Project have been working on building the previous Elder Scrolls worlds into Skyrim to create one large super-world spanning the entire Elder Scrolls series. It’s not the kind of task that can be completed overnight, but as their latest video proves, they’ve been making good progress.

    To end this year on a high note I wanted to show you all how far the Skyblivion project has come during its development cycle, we still have allot of work ...
  • Bethesda Loves The Nintendo Switch switchEven though Skyrim was prominently displayed as one of the games running on Nintendo’s Switch during their introductory trailer, Bethesda has yet to officially announce the game is coming to Switch. It is extremely obvious, however.
    Not only have we already seen Skyrim running on it (provided that wasn’t just digital trickery), but Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda, can’t stop gushing about how enthusiastic he is about the console-handheld hybrid’s potential.
    “I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you — well, maybe that’s an thing,” Howard told the website Glixel. “One of the ...
  • Skyrim’s Mod Support On PS4 Is A Letdown skyrim special editionIf you’re just now joining us, here’s a recap: Skyrim Special Edition was announced for consoles and the PC. Then the surprise announcement was made that the XBox One version would support mods, just like the PC version does. All heads then shifted to Sony to see how they’d react, and at first the answer was “no, no mods.”
    But after a few negotiations behind closed doors, that decision was reversed and Sony announced mods WOULD be possible on the PS4 version. And there was much rejoicing!
    Then the game came out.
    Since Skyrim’s release on Friday, players have discovered the number of ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • It Took 23 Years For This Game To Be Sold In English princess maker 2You are familiar with anime studio Gainax, creators of FLCL and the Evangelion series, correct? Well, back in 1993 they partnered with Korean games publisher CFK to create a video game, released first on PC and then on Sega Saturn. Neither version saw a Western release, even though one was announced at first.
    Now, over 20 years later, Princess Maker 2 will finally, finally receive its official English translation and go for sale on Steam. The trailer consists of raw gameplay footage and appears to be the cancelled translation from ’93 (“There was a kingdom, of the king flaunts his dominance.”) ...
