Skyrim: Special Edition mods are off to a decent start on consoles

Bethesda has brought back The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with a re-release for PC and consoles. It's out today and, unsurprisingly, my feeds are freaking out. I'd say I forgot how big this game was in 2011, but I haven't. Skyrim never left us,...   read

Doom looks ripe for a replay with Arcade mode

I played Doom once and adored it. Then I went straight back in to mop up the collectibles, and continued having a good time. Next it was on to the multiplayer, which didn't do much for me, and I've since been meaning to play the campaign a...   read

It's the same Prey trailer, but with a woman's voice this time

As part of Bethesda's QuakeCon festivities in early August, we were treated to a new trailer for Prey. It kind of had gameplay, but it moreso had exposition. Whatever. Anything that gets us closer to figuring out what Prey is will alw...   read

Skyrim Special Edition has higher system requirements

While I tend to think of the console versions of Skyrim Special Edition first and foremost, the enhanced re-release will also appear on PC. As a reminder, Bethesda is going to give it out as a freebie to folks who own the original base game...   read

Doom's latest update brings out free-for-all deathmatch

Even if I have little to no interest in returning to Doom's multiplayer, I'm glad to see it have continued support. Following the fairly recent Unto the Evil DLC (more maps and gear, plus a new Harvester demon), id Software has pushed out ...   read

Corvo certainly doesn't go the pacifist route in this Dishonored 2 trailer
