Yes, Skyblivion is still going folks. A team of volunteers are still plugging away at remaking The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in Skyrim as a mod. Will it ever come to a close? Well, in a new developer diary, we got an insight into how it's looking and where it's headed. In among all the details surrounding UI and clothes and objects, I found one…

The 10 worst kings and queens in PC games

Regicide is once again a topic at dinner, thanks to the release of Crusader Kings III. Your aunt passes you the gravy, and asks about council matters. Your mother comments on the rise in guillotine stocks. Your father, the king, chews his mutton with a rueful and distant glare, probably thinking about war. A cloaked advisor enters and hands you a note on parchment. “The…

This virtual museum lets you try the lockpicking minigames from loads of different games

Ages ago I learned how to lockpick in real life, and ever since I've been so impressed at how video games emulate the feeling of managing to crack a lock open. I think maybe it's the noise, that signature *clunk* that makes it so satisfying. It's a staple of RPGs like Skyrim, where lockpicking is literally a skill you can level up. But loads of…

That's the story according to the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Page Twitter account, which twote last night about a character they put in jail for 225,000 days.

Skyrim composer Jeremy Soule and Night In The Woods co-creator Alec Holowka accused of sexual assault

Allegations of abuse have been made against multiple games industry figures in the past 24 hours. On Monday afternoon Nathalie Lawhead, developer of the IGF-winning Tetrageddon Games, wrote a post on her website alleging that Jeremy Soule, the composer of Skyrim, raped her while she was working for an unnamed Vancouver-based games studio. Seven hours later, comics writer and indie developer Zoë Quinn posted tweets…

Skyrim Beyond: Bruma mod travels to familiar lands

A corner of the world of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has arrived in Skyrim with the launch of Beyond Skyrim: Bruma [official site], a mod set around Cyrodil's city of Bruma. Unlike the still-in-development mod remaking Oblivion inside Skyrim, this mod is telling new stories set around the time of Skryim - 200 years after Oblivion. As well as recreating and updating the Bruma…

Skyblivion looks even more like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

Skyblivion [official site], the huge fan project to remake The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as a Skyrim mod, is picking up pace. We had a peek at their progress in December and, the dev team say, that video helped them recruit a load more help.

Skyblivion is looking a lot like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

As another year ends, it's time to reflect on all that's been done and all that's still to come. So they tell me, anyway; I try to drink away any concept of the past or future. But bless 'em, the gang remaking The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have worked hard and are proud of their work. A new trailer shows off Skyblivion [official site] as…

Skyblivion Bringing Oblivion’s Soul Into Skyrim’s Body

There's an unbelievable amount of mods available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from the obscene and naughty to the absolutely ridiculous and nonsensical. Dedicated fans of the game have even released entirely new lands and stories to rival Skyrim's original in breadth and scope. TESRenewal is attempting to do a sort of inception within the framework of Skyrim's Creation Kit and answer the question,…

Older Scrolls: Daggerfall Is Twenty Years Old Today

Today marks the twentieth anniversary of the release of one of the greatest roleplaying games ever made. Set in a world so vast that you could combine almost every open world game released since and cram them all into one of its regions, and allowing the freedom to buy real estate within that world, it remains one of the grandest games of its type.It is…

Have You Played The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.A bit of a dirty word in some quarters of the roleplaying community, given that it marks the beginning of once-revered series' ongoing drift into all violence all the time, and directly led to Fallout's controversial divergence from its former cRPG path. Good god,…

The RPG Scrollbars: Quests Done Quick

I must confess, since finishing Siege of Dragonspear the other week, I've not actually fired up any RPGs. It's not for want of them to play. I'm particularly looking forward to finally trying Final Fantasy IX, which I missed back in the day, and Beamdog's recently announced interquel, Planescape Torment: The Nameless One And A Half. (It's very similar to the original, only now whenever…

Skywind Video Shows Progress In Reviving Morrowind

I used to like total conversions not only for those few which were released, but for watching the development process in action. Untextured weapon models get a bad rap, but I like watching a plan come together or even partially together. Skywind, then. It's an attempt to re-build Morrowind within Skyrim's engine, with re-build environments, textures, models and more. The latest update video shows just…

The RPG Scrollbars: Heroes. Don’t. Craft.

Few game mechanics right now make me 'urrrrrrrrrrgh' quite like crafting. Bloody, bloody crafting. I hate crafting. I hate that just about every game I pick up can't wait to introduce its crafting system to me, with its long shopping lists of finnicky items to find, and about as much care for being believable as all those shotguns and medikits Lara Croft used to find…

Morrowind Overhaul OpenMW Gets New Graphics Engine

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind [official site] was released in 2002. It's testament to how highly regarded the now 13-year-old game is that folks are still determined to keep it alive. OpenMW is one such effort: an open source "engine re-implementation" of Morrowind. It's still some ways from being finished, but the released build has just received an extensive update.

Skyblivion! Gawp At The Skyrim Remake Of Oblivion

Skyblivion! Graham contends that Skywind has the best name of old Elder Scrolls games being remade in Skyrim, but the Oblivion remake feels more fun on the tongue to me. Skyblivion!

Modular Scrolls: Skyblivion Is Oblivion Remade In Skyrim

Speaking personally, I find The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to be the weakest game of its storied lineage, but that doesn't mean I think it was bad by any means. The prospect of exploring its world of idyllic countrysides, tastefully mudcrab-dappled waters, and screaming fire eyeball portals to hell remains an attractive one, and I'll be especially keen to do so if Skyblivion sees the…

Lord Of The Cringe: Oblivion’s Prequel Adventure

Yes, yes, Oblivion has long stepped aside and given Skyrim the spotlight, and Prequel - also known as Making A Cat Cry: The Adventure - has been around for a while. It's been brought to my attention that not everyone knows about it though, so here's why you should check it out.
