  • Here’s The System Requirements When Skyrim Upgrades Here's The System Requirements When Skyrim UpgradesLater 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 Mod Support IS Coming to PS4 Skyrim After AllFirst 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 It Took 23 Years For This Game To Be Sold In EnglishYou 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.”) ...
  • Elder Scrolls 6 Will Get Here When It Gets Here Elder Scrolls 6 Will Get Here When It Gets HerePeople apparently won’t stop asking Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines about the next Elder Scrolls game, which currently doesn’t exist in any form. He told there’s a reason for that.
    “This studio is not a vending machine,” he said. “They’re not a two-button vending machine, where first we press Elder Scrolls and then we press Fallout, and then we press Elder Scrolls and then we press Fallout… They’re an incredibly talented studio of creative people. They’ve now made four games in a row, all of which were named Game of the Year, and they have a right to decide what ...
  • Why We Won’t Be Getting Oblivion or Morrowind Remastered Why We Won't Be Getting Oblivion or Morrowind RemasteredIf we’re getting a remastered, upgraded version of Skyrim soon, could remakes of the previous two Elder Scrolls games be far behind? Actually, no….Bethesda has no current plans to bring either of them back. As marketing boss Pete Hines explained, the reason is because getting the graphics in those two games up to snuff would require much, much more work.
    “Oblivion is 10 years old, so the amount of work for that engine and that tech to bring it and remaster it and do all the things we wanted to do was significant,” Hines explained. “It’s not impossible, but it was ...

  • New Trailer For The PS4’s “Fairy Fencer F” New Trailer For The PS4's Never heard of Fairy Fencer F? You have now. The official trailer for the action-JRPG was released this morning by Idea Factory, the company localizing and publishing the game. Actual gameplay doesn’t show up in the trailer until a minute in, due to a lengthy backstory. If you prefer, the backstory is faster to get through in text:

    The battle was fierce; the two were equally matched. Finally, both sides unleashed special weapons that contained fairies imbued with their power. Using this power, each god sealed away the other ...

  • Is Bethesda Working On Elder Scrolls 6? ….No Is Bethesda Working On Elder Scrolls 6? ....NoSorry to pass on disappointment to everyone who has been assuming Bethesda Games is hard at work on the sixth Elder Scrolls game, but….they’re not. Marketing executive Pete Hines was asked two days ago on Twitter if the studio was hard at work on the next game, and he replied. To put the question being asked in context, Fallout 4 and Skyrim director Todd Howard made a recent comment that Bethesda was working on “three big and crazy projects.”
    “Are those big games gonna take away the focus from ES6?” asked Twitter-er Hot Shame.
    Hines replied, “We aren’t working on ES6 at ...
  • Enderal, The Biggest Skyrim Mod Of Them All, Comes This July Enderal, The Biggest Skyrim Mod Of Them All, Comes This JulyThere are mods, and then there’s Enderal, which promises to be the closest thing you can get to an actual Skyrim sequel without being one. It’s going to feature a new overworld and story, as well as new gameplay mechanics — all unique. The mod, first announced in 2013, took over three years to create.
    It’s being brought into existence by developer SureAI, famous for their previous gargantuan mod Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge. SureAI is promising you’ll get around 30 to 100 extra hours of gameplay from Skyrim with Enderal.
    Enderal couldn’t have come at a better time, now that a remastered ...
