Fallout 76’s new One Wasteland update adds level scaling

Fallout 76 has launched another update, this one bringing a bit of equality to Appalachia. The One Wasteland Update balances 76's combat with the goal of easing news players into the game while making sure those mavericks over level 200 will still have some appropriate challenges. Along with level scaling, the new update kicks off Season 2 of the game's S.C.O.R.E. reward track system.

Doom Eternal’s Ancient Gods DLC won’t require the base game

Doom Eternal's upcoming DLC might take place in the immediate wake of the base campaign, but that doesn't mean you'll need to have actually played it. Arriving this October, Id Software this weekend confirmed that you'll be able to pick up the first bit of two-part romp The Ancient Gods without having actually bought the base game, letting you jump straight into the deicidal carnage.

Skyrim looks like a new game with 300 mods installed

Nowadays, I’m a Skyrim watcher and not a Skyrim doer. I used to be a doer, but that involved more than just installing the game. I'd start modding, and I wouldn't stop. Couldn't stop. I’d spend more time looking for lore appropriate coin distribution than shouting at dragons. Eventually, something would break, and I'd uninstall it, promising that I wouldn't fall into that hole again.…

Elder Scrolls Online will turn player houses into living dioramas with NPC routines

The Elder Scrolls Online's player homes are instanced areas where you can decorate to your heart's desire. I've been working on my daunting snowglobe house for years it feels like—slowly chucking in more curtains and little candles and whatnot. Even for a snowglobe though, my homestead feels a bit lifeless. I've housed my bear steeds (obviously I have multiple) in the stable outside and my…

Arkane’s Deathloop has been delayed into 2021

Time might be on the side of Deathloop's groundhog-day killer Colt, but the same doesn't ring quite as true for developers Arkane. Citing a shaky transition into remote working and a need for more time to polish up bloody vacation hotspot Blackreef, Arkane today announced that their time-looping stab 'em up will no longer arrive this winter, and will instead launch sometime next year.

This huge Fallout: New Vegas mod replaces 145 NPC voices with new actors

If you've played Fallout: New Vegas a handful of times you've almost certainly done a double take once or twice when you recognise the voice of a character. Wait, didn't I meet you already? You had a different face then. The voice talent in New Vegas can be spread a bit thin at times, with some actors portraying quite a few characters. This overhaul mod…

Dwagonbown Goes UwU is the worst thing that has ever happened to Skyrim

It's the banner that did it.Drag... god. Jesus christ. Dwagonbown Goes UwU (or, more correctly, dwagonbown goes uwu) is an overhaul mod that turns you into the worst person in Skyrim. It does nothing, really, except it changes most of your dialogue options to be, well, uwu.If you're not familiar with the concept, please for the love of god stop now. Save yourself. There is…

Fallout 76 is at its best when you play it slowly

I'm still enjoying Fallout 76 partly because it makes it much easier to ignore the things I usually gripe about in MMOs. That's not to say it isn't naggy (and the recently added public teams pop up a notification with a noise that startles me almost every time I'm creeping up on something), nor immune to the usual MMO diseases. But I can largely do…

QuakeCon 2020 is going fully digital for its 25th annual event

QuakeCon is an entire quarter-century old this year, and no pandemic will stop Id Software and Bethesda from celebrating it. While the in-person event was cancelled back in March due to Covid-19, QuakeCon will now be joining the raft of gaming events being taken online. Aptly named QuakeCon At Home, it's set to feature esports tournaments, charity initiatives, and loads of "round-the-clock" live streams. It…

I met the Fallout 76 Fun Cop

People in Fallout 76 are decent enough, in my experience. I forget whether I've related my first encounter with another player, where I accidentally blundered into their camp, then backed away in the panicky assumption that they'd attack me, only for them to instead drop a gift bag with a level-appropriate hunting rifle and some ammunition in it. I still have that rifle.Most people I've…

Public teams improve, but don’t solve, Fallout 76’s social problems

Fallout 76 recently kicked off its new seasonal update system. The opening season is called "The Legendary Run", and gives the game another new arbitrary point-tracking system, this time called "S.C.O.R.E.". More significantly, it's also opened up the option for players to create and join teams with unfamiliar players. I've been giving that a go and it's... well, an improvement. A bit.

I am well up for punching ghosts in GhostWire: Tokyo

Following a terse announcement last E3, Bethesda today gave a nice look at GhostWire: Tokyo, the next horror game from The Evil Within studio Tango Gameworks. I had expected ghosts and Tokyo. I had not expected we'd be punching them and ripping out their ghosthearts with our magic fists. See for yourself in the "gameplay reveal trailer" below:

Deathloop’s recursive assassinations arrive on PC this winter

For Deathloop's unfortunate leading man, getting shot in the gut is simply another learning opportunity. Following its brief cinematic showing at E3 last year, Bethesda finally gave us a bloody good look at Arkane Lyon's time-locked assassin during tonight's PlayStation 5 reveal stream - a slick-as-hell recursive bloodbath that's bringing supernatural hunter-vs-hunted showdowns to PC this winter.

Get a Fus from the past in this Skyrim fan video and its 2012 SFX

Truly, Skyrim never dies. Its memes, one liners, and in-jokes are probably destined to plague our vocabulary until the end of time. Here's a deep cut for you all the way back from the annals of 2012. It's been reshared on Reddit once again because you can't really beat the silly friends reenact video games vibe. So I'm resharing it too and Fus Ro Dah…

Break out the party poppers - Prey and Dishonored developers Arkane Studios turns 20 years old this year. Well, sort of. The studio may have been founded in '99, but who am I to ruin a party? To celebrate two decades of sneaking, stabbing, and all-round immersive sim'ing, Arkane are dusting off the oldest book on their shelf by giving away free copies of the…

Fallout 76’s jolly Fasnacht robot parade is back on

The Fallout 76 clown car continued its strange journey this week, as the recently semi-redeemed MMO stumbled over another technical hitch.The popular in-game event Fasnacht Day was expected to start on Monday, but was quickly stalled by a bug. Players reacted with great frustration as the event was taken down, depriving everyone of an hourly semi-charming, semi-creepy masked robot march. Bethesda report that all is…

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.

Bethesda have released their remaining 2020 plans for scrap-hoarding MMO Fallout 76.
