  • E3 2016: Skyrim Coming To PS4 And XBox One skyrimIt’s been a long time since we’ve been able to report on news relating to this site’s namesake, but today’s the day.
    Bethesda revealed the news during their E3 press conference tonight: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is coming to current-gen consoles! Of course it’ll be remastered, polished and pretty, but you’ll be able to make it prettier (or weirder, depending)….because mods will be allowed as well! Also coming for the ride is the entirety of downloadable content released to date.
    Here’s the footage Bethesda showed everyone. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition is coming to Playstation 4 and XBox One on October ...
  • 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.

    As you can see, practically everything about it takes the classic approach: turn-based battles, an overhead view, an overworld map, an eventual airship, and a dramatic ...
  • 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.
    “The big difference in our Fog of War from Civ 5 is that Civ 5 had the clouds. Now we’re treating the totally unexplored areas as a blank parchment with longitude and latitude lines on it,” says Brian Busatti to IGN. “But as you explore that you start to open things up. The mid-fog, instead ...
  • What The Mobile Version Of Final Fantasy XI Will Look Like Will Final Fantasy XI ever die? It seemed that way when the PS2 version of the game was finally shut off earlier this month, but Square is now preparing to launch a new version in its place: a FFXI port for mobile devices. Given Japan’s current gaming market, it makes sense….though perhaps not as much as porting their much fresher MMO, FFXIV.
    Square showed off the first-ever released screenshots of the mobile FFXI during the Nexon Developer Conference in South Korea today. They lie below:

    Note that Square already announced it had made all the additional worlds and updates to ...

  • PAX East: Pyre Developer Supergiant Talks Games Story And Combat In the RPG Pyre, the game features not only an in-depth story, but also a combat system that plays more like a sports game rather than an RPG. This uniqueness is what makes Supergiant games a popular developer. And at PAX East, they talked about how this came about:
    “We like the idea of a high stakes competition where it isn’t just about life and death, that’s a very common thing in video games,” Supergiant Games creative director Greg Kasayin said to Polygon. “You just try and try and try until you win. Death isn’t usually much of a setback.
    “We like ...
  • Skyrim City Mod Took Over Three Years To Craft There are Skyrim mods that expand the game, and then there’s Holds: The City Overhaul, one mammoth effort nearly four years in the making that’s available starting today.
    Holds vastly increases the size of many of Skyrim’s cities, most notably Falkreath, Winterhold and Dawnstar, and even adds a few smaller settlements of its own. Interiors of buildings have also been redone. It was a ton of work and creator Galandil has been at it since 2012. “Most of these new settlements have been placed far out of the way and hidden from view to not ruin the expansive wilderness theme of ...

  • Zero Escape 3 Now Has Official Title zero escapeEarleir this year we were pleased to report Japanese developer Chunsoft was finally going forward with the third game in the Zero Escape series of puzzle/mystery/novel titles. This week Aksys, the translation company that publishes the Zero Escape series in the West, revealed its official title: Zero Time Dilemma. They also showed off this artwork….

    Feels reminiscent of Saw, which some people have said bears resemblance to Zero Escape thematically (but with far less torture).
    The secret ending of Zero Escape 2 (Virtue’s Last Reward) was a hint at the events of the third game and suggested time travel would play a ...

  • New Mod Video Merges Worlds Of Skyrim And GTA skyrimModder Adam Pinkman used Grand Theft Auto V, and a lot of mod packages created to manipulate it, to recreate the Skyrim trailer in Los Santos. He succeeded, but not without a lot of hard work.
    “It was quite challenging with the scenes,” Pinkman told Polygon in their story on the video. “I had to use other mods to accomplish these types of shots for instance. When people are panicking and rushing all over the streets, I used the Chaos Mod.”
    As you might imagine, the hardest part was getting a dragon to appear in GTA V, which doesn’t have an asset ...
  • New Skyrim Mod Adds Splatoon Gun splatoonElements from Splatoon have been modded into various other games over the past few months, and now it’s Skyrim’s turn.
    A Japanese modder who goes by the name Higeyoshi has developed and released “Peryitoon,” a modification that adds the Splattershot gun from Splatoon to the weapons arsenal in Skyrim. It really works and it really blankets everything it touches in ink. Have a few looks:
     

    It also functions as a weapon. According to Higeyoshi, in the Elder Scrolls universe the Splattershot “harnesses the divine protection of Peryite and fires a powerful poison that weakens enemy health.” Plus, it’s just fun to ...
