Have You Played… The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?

Another winter, another new Skyrim save file. You may be asking why I own this particular game on multiple different platforms, and sometimes more than once on one platform (looking at you Special Edition). You may think it’s because I like to create a different character build each time, a wise mage, a heavy melee warrior, or a stealthy archer. You may think it’s because…

Fallout 76 adds player-run storefronts next week

As rough as its launch may have been, Fallout 76 remains a very popular game, with a large, dedicated and increasingly moneyed and geared player-base. Next week's big update for the game, due on May 7th, is bringing player-run stores to Appalachia, allowing you to set up automated vending systems for other players to buy your excess junk and ammo from, while siphoning off 10%…

‘Skyrim grandma’ Shirley Curry to become NPC in The Elder Scrolls VI

The Elder Scrolls 6 is still a (long, long) ways off, but Bethesda have confirmed the only news about it that truly matters: YouTuber and grandmother Shirley Curry will be included in the game. Last year, fans rallied to get her added as an NPC, and the developers have obliged, inviting Curry to their studios have her likeness scanned and saved for use in their…

Playing Morrowind for the first time? A little work makes it look wonderful

Morrowind, the third and greatest instalment in Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series, has been back in the news this week. It was briefly free to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series, and then made a brief return to Steam's top sellers, thanks to discounts and coverage. Which is lovely: it shows its age in many, many painful ways, but its imagination, ambition and wonderfully weird…

Fallout 76 brewing delayed to tomorrow

If you're looking to get blasted on moonshine as an escape from the grim pointlessness of the post-apocalyptic wasteland, you'll need to wait one more day for Fallout 76 to start its 'Wild Appalachia' season of updates. This was supposed to kick off today with brewing and distilling but Bethesda have delayed the launch ever so slightly because they needed a little extra time. On…

Fallout 76 adding free new modes, quests and main story in 2019

Troubled pseudo-MMO Fallout 76 has had its fair share of problems, but Bethesda aren't calling it quits yet. Celebrating (commemorating?) the game's hundredth day since launch, Bethesda have published their update road-map for the game for the rest of the year. They've got a whole lot planned, split into three seasons - Wild Appalachia, Nuclear Winter and Wastelanders, each containing several major updates, all free.…

Enderal: Forgotten Stories is free on Steam for Skyrim owners

Enderal: Forgotten Stories is out now on Steam, making it the first Skyrim mod to launch as a (mostly) standalone game with achievements, cloud save support and even its own mod workshop. Set in its own, somewhat darker and grittier fantasy universe, Enderal is a well-known total conversion mod from SureAI, with this free Steam release being an expanded and polished edition. You'll need the…

Bethesda confirm Fallout 76’s Vault 63 will eventually open its doors after player glitches inside

Vaults have long been one of the more interesting areas to explore in Fallout games, allowing players to unravel the sinister experiments forced upon their unwitting inhabitants. Fallout 4’s Vault 111 put people into cryogenic sleep, whereas the residents of the eponymous Vault 76 were simply spat out into the wasteland after 25 short years - but what about Vault 63? It makes an appearance…

Skyrim total conversion Enderal expands onto Steam next week

After some behind-the-scenes wrangling with Valve, Enderal: Forgotten Stories hits Steam next Thursday, February 14th as a free, standalone game for anyone who owns Skyrim. Originally a mere mod (set in its own world entirely separate from The Elder Scrolls), you won't even need Skyrim installed to play this version of Enderal. Developers SureAI say the Forgotten Stories version boasts more quest-lines, new character classes, a…

Fallout 76 introduces new problem while re-fixing old problems

In a comedy of errors, a Fallout 76 "hotfix" patch intended to re-fix issues that Bethesda previously fixed then accidentally undid has seemingly introduced a whole new nasty problem. Something went awry during the development of this week's Patch 5, meaning not all changes from Patch 4 carried over so suddenly lockpicking bobby pins were heavy again, among other issues. A wee "hotfix" patch launched…

Fallout 76 is now back up and there have been a bunch of big changes. So we figured we'd keep a log of when it is going down and the changes that were made.  I've put together this page which will have any information regarding any planned maintenance days, along with all the times and dates in your area.

Fallout 76 details new PvP focused Survival mode

Fallout 76 has always had a kind of pseudo-PvP, allowing players to fight one another but only through mutual consent. If you shot at someone who never shot you back, damage would be greatly reduced to prevent random server-mates from killing you everywhere you went. Now, though, they’re introducing a new “Survival” mode specially for murdering one another. Though they’re aiming to release the mode…

Bethesda deny Fallout 76 free-to-play rumour

Bethesda have denied a rumour that Fallout 76 is preparing to go free-to-play. Launched in November 2018, their multiplayer survival sandbox scored a 'noncommittal, wavy gesture of the hands and forearms accompanied by an exclamatory exhalation' out of 10, a score further lessened by bugs and leaking personal information and bugs and skimping on the £175 edition. While the rumour was based on hearsay and…

Skyrim multiplayer mod is nearly Su Grah Dun

Here's one to put on your Fus Ra-Dar. A Skyrim multiplayer mod is about to enter closed beta, and will soon offer you and up to seven friends the chance to explore the snowy bit of Tamriel together. The devs say the closed beta won't last long, and an open one will be hot on its heels. It is worth bearing in mind that they…

Fallout 76’s last surviving human NPC lives only to suffer

Have pity on Wooby, the last non-vault-dwelling human in Fallout 76's West Virginia. Robbed of a voice, his only reason to exist - as hinted at by the long-standing trope of similar name - is to suffer, probably as a target for weapons testing. Wooby exists in a sealed off little void packed to the brim with weapons and items, some of which aren't technically…

New Elder Scrolls Online expansion brings back the dragons (and also cats)

The Elder Scrolls Online is both an attempt to further the Elder Scrolls formula into something more dynamic and living, and a game that often seems dependent on nostalgia for its continued existence. 2017's Morrowind expansion took us back to Elder Scrolls' finest hour, last year's Summerset was our first return to a land not seen since Arena, the original Scrolls game, and next, here…

Fallout 3 remake mod Capital Wasteland uncancelled

Having halted development in 2018 due to legal concerns, the team behind Capital Wasteland have resumed work on remaking Fallout 3 inside Fallout 4 as a mod - with a wild plan to sidestep the legal issue. Having previously intended to edit Fallout 3's sound files to work with Fallout 4, which was a no-no, they now plan to record the 45,000 lines of the…

Nukes return to Fallout 76 after an explosion-free new year

Fallout 76 has had some problems along the way (including data leaks, and unwanted immortality), but the latest bug to hit Bethesda's online sandbox spinoff was arguably an improvement. Yesterday, January 1st, players discovered that their nuclear launch codes just weren't working. For a brief day and a half, nobody was suddenly exploded into a cloud of radioactive loot-enhanced particles. Sadly, Bethesda have since announced…
