Skyrim: I Want More Pretties

By Jim Rossignol on November 16th, 2011.

Pretty enough for you?
If you’ve been looking at your own version of Skyrim, and then seeing the images that likes of DeadEndThrills have been putting out (pinched one from there for the image above, sorry Duncan!) you might be forgiven for wondering how you can push the game beyond its prescribed options. There are ways.

Brink: Release, RPS Servers, Bugs

By Jim Rossignol on May 12th, 2011.


Brink is out now in the US and apparently out in the UK tomorrow. We’ve spent the last couple of days playing it, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for our full critical verdict. Nevertheless I thought I’d say a few things tonight, including venting my frustration with a critical bug, and providing you with our server details for US and UK-based Brink servers. Read on for a mixed bag of information!

Rage’s 300mb Wallpapers

By Jim Rossignol on July 6th, 2010.


I’m not going to make a habit of linking to wallpaper releases, obviously, but I think the update for Id Software’s latest on Bethesda Blog might be worth an exception. They have all the normal sizes, as you might expect, but also two 25,600×16,000 images, and a marginally smaller 25,600×9,080. You know, just in case you decided you wanted to print out these wallpapers for some actual walls.

I have to admit that Fallout 3 was one of those games that I played a bit of and then thought “well, I’ll come back to that.” I never did go back, and consequently I haven’t done much to follow New Vegas, which is due at the end of the year (and is what a cynical person might suggest Obsidian had been working on when they should have been making Alpha Protocol shine… I’m sure it’s far more complicated than that, of course.) Anyway, it’s a big standalone sequel to Fallout 3, which takes place in and around Las Vegas, which was largely untouched by the nuclear apocalypse. Of course, the landscape remains typical blasted, and mutants have words of advice for you, as you’ll see below. The game is out in “Q4″.

Fallout Online Images?

By Jim Rossignol on November 13th, 2009.


Polish site Polygamia.pl send word that they’ve got their hands on some of the images from vapour-MMO Project V13, which would be Fallout Online, via the court case between Bestheda and Interplay. Probably not even vaguely representative of what said game will come to look like, if it ever comes to be, but worth a look to see what the Interplayians have been up to in their backwoods game shed.
