The Elder Scrolls Online’s next expansion explores High Elven lands

Back in my day, if a game tanked, that was it. You just shrugged and moved on, but these days? Whippersnappers keep on fixing things. Improvin' stuff, as if the medium was malleable or something. After FFXIV, The Elder Scrolls Online is probably the next strongest comeback that an MMO has made. Completely replacing its business model and progression systems after a very wonky initial launch,…

Feature: A wealth of splendid 2016-17 games for the lousiest of hardware

13 recent games that run well on terrible laptops

'Terrible' only in the sense of their gaming capability. Honestly, I'm sure your laptop is lovely to look at and it was definitely a extremely sensible idea to spend all that money on it instead of buying a holiday or helping to save the pandas.

How Morrowindy is Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind?

I will admit to a certain wateriness in my eyes when I heard the music. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was and is, I believe, almost more a state of mind than it is a roleplaying game. A strange and desolate place, built upon a foundation of distrust, it is almost aggressively lonely. As an RPG, the precursor to Oblivion and Skyrim is all over…

The Elder Scrolls Online is going to Morrowind in June

When The Elder Scrolls Online [official site] first slunk into the world I was not impressed. At a preview event, I was reticent, and at release I was still unconvinced. The MMO shackles just didn’t fit with the Elder Scrolls I have always known. But Zenimax have been hacking away at the RPG’s extraneous limbs and replacing them with whole new ones, which has reportedly…
