Bethesda shows off 30 minutes of The Elder Scrolls Online photo
Bethesda shows off 30 minutes of The Elder Scrolls Online
by Abel Girmay

During the second day of this past weekend's QuakeCon, Bethesda gave an extended look at its upcoming MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online. With such a well-known license behind it, the hype is understandably palpable, even from people such as myself who don't play MMOs very often. Considering it's also coming to PS4, I'm more than willing to give it a shake. It also helps that the game doesn't look half bad. 

Now here's to hoping it takes a Guild Wars 2 approach to subscriptions.

Nintendo Download: Pikmin 3

After a relatively meh offering last week, Nintendo is bouncing back a bit with a decent showing for this week's Nintendo Download. For starters, Cloudberry Kingdom is hitting the Wii U eShop, with Harvest Moon hitting the Vi...

Lend me your ears for another tale of a former AAA workhorse who packed his bags his and moved onto the rich, fertile lands of independent development. Jim Shepard, whose resume includes time spent at studios such as Raven S...

Nintendo Download: Kid Icarus NES

After a rather explosive Nintendo Download last week, there isn't a whole lot to nab this week on both the Wii U and 3DS. The Wii U will be getting Kid Icarus on the Virtual Console, and that's literally it. Since the 3D Clas...

Nintendo Download: EARTHBOUND?!

Defying all logic, Nintendo has randomly released EarthBound for the Wii U Virtual Console for $9.99 today. This classic RPG by developers HAL Laboratory and Ape was extremely hard to find legitimately, and cart prices skyroc...

The Mega Man Legends 3 8-bit demake demo is available photo
The Mega Man Legends 3 8-bit demake demo is available
by Chris Carter

I've said this many times before, but the Mega Man fan community never ceases to amaze me. After a number of passionate fan projects that set out to re-create the classic feel of the 8-bit series, another project caught my eye -- a demake of Mega Man Legends 3.

The developers of the game sought to do what Capcom didn't -- provide a bit of closure to the Legends series, a franchise that previously left off with Mega Man Volnutt stranded on the moon. With a ton of official Legends and Capcom staffers on this, I absolutely can't wait to see how the finished product turns out, and I'm downloading the demo with glee as we speak.

As a side note, you need to set your PC to Japan in your regional settings to play this (Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Region and Language > Administrative > Change System Locale).
