    Enderal couldn’t have come at a better time, now that a remastered ...
  • According to Bethesda, All Existing Mods Will Work With Skyrim Remastered skyrim remasteredE3 broke the news that Skyrim was coming to current-gen consoles, and that mods would be allowed.

  • I Am Setsuna’s E3 Trailer Is Out Today i am setsunaPerhaps Square’s most anticipated upcoming title among its biggest fans is I Am Setsuna. Final Fantasy XV may have louder hype, but Setsuna is promising a revival of old-school, Chrono Trigger-style combo RPG gameplay. And today, the official E3 trailer for the game went up on Youtube.
    Was there a leak? No….Square put the trailer out voluntarily, ahead of schedule. Is this the same thing they’re going to show on stage at E3? I guess so.

  • New Details To Fog Of War In Civilization VI! The “Fog of War” reference to areas of a map in certain games where the player can’t see details. Often times being “blacked out” until explored. This has happened many times for the Civilization series. Though with Civ VI, it’s going to be altered a bit.
