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

Review in Progress: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

Whelp, Bethesda isn't sending out review copies before launch anymore, even though it saw fit to send copies to YouTubers. So here we are at the launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and I'll be taking my time to go ba...   read

Bethesda's 'everyone experiences [our games] at the same time' policy is wildly inconsistent

So as you may have heard, Bethesda recently went public with their "we won't send out early copies" policy. This is something that many of us writers have been expecting since they took that route with Doom, so it doesn't come as a big surp...   read

This is how Skyrim: Special Edition looks in motion

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

Skyrim and Fallout 4 will get mods on PS4, but there's a catch

Xbox One players began tinkering with mods for Fallout 4 back in May, but the rollout on PlayStation 4 hasn't been so straightforward. After notifying users that the update was being delayed on the console, Bethesda eventually made it clear...   read

Doom soundtrack now officially available

Ever since the release of Doom back in May, fans have been clamoring for an official soundtrack release. Bethesda was silent on the matter and, oddly, didn't even have a digital version for purchase. People just wanted to rip and tear at th...   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

One of the great things about Dishonored is that it's one of those games where killing is a totally viable option, but it's just that -- an option. Running through Dunwall without any murder is an accomplishment worthy of the hig...   read

Farming Simulator 2017 does the impossible and brings mods to PS4

Review: Fallout 4: Nuka-World

Fallout 4's newest animated short hits the bottle hard
