As I powered up the PSVR to play the recently released Skyrim VR, I wondered whether this was yet another company’s lazy cash grab exploiting a new tech fad, or a genuine new step for the franchise. This was my third first time playing it. First released in 2011, the same exact game now had four releases across half a…
When I first met Aela, I could tell she was going to be trouble. I was a newcomer to the city of Whiterun. I wanted adventure. All I got was heartbreak.
They say you shouldn’t rush into a new marriage, but screw it. This is the funniest use of speedrunning I’ve seen lately.
The video that led me to Nick, known on YouTube as the ASMRnerd, was “Soft-Spoken ASMR: Elder Scrolls Maps.” I have no idea how I found it–probably late at night in a semi-conscious YouTube trance. “Join me for a relaxing cartographic journey across Tamriel and its provinces,” the description reads. “Triggers include…
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting a remaster, with a prettier “Special Edition” version of the classic on the way to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
On PC, Fallout 4 is an endless sea of possibility. Anything you can imagine, you can probably download as a customization and insert it into the game.
There’s a pretty great easter egg hidden in Fallout 4, and it has some juicy implications about two of Bethesda’s biggest series.
The Steam controller, for all its flaws, is insanely customizable. One user put that versatility to extremely good use.
I couldn’t stop smiling one day in late 2005 as I was led through the darkened basement of Bethesda Softworks toward the little corner unit that was to be my cube. My geek barometer was pinging off the charts. I could scarcely believe that I was there.
Earlier this month, ThreeZero revealed they were making some beautiful, 1:6 scale figures based on the post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to “ridiculously cool/expensive toys”, these new figures might just fit the bill: A fraction of the cost, but still completely awesome.
I would very much like to play this version of Skyrim.
We’ve all been there. You pick up your keys, pick up your jacket, grab your bag and suddenly you’re over-encumbered.
This week saw the announcement of Fallout 4 — and just in time was the announcement that Funko are continuing to somehow get their hands on every brand around, with new toys based on the franchise. Stop gathering your bottlecaps, because these little guys will be the new way we barter in the nuclear apocalypse.
Perhaps you’ve heard a thing or two about “Valve” and “Skyrim” and “mods” recently. What does it all mean? The company that built the world’s most successful video game marketplace started an app store that pays people to remix virtual worlds—and 100,000 angry internet denizens just shot down that idea.
The Khajiit battled across Skyrim and learned the Dragon Shouts, relying on his wits, his sword, and his incomparable cuteness. But as soon as he took that arrow to the knee, he knew his quest was at its end.
So I started a new character a couple of weeks back, installed a couple mods to go with the new run and set off on an (old) new adventure.
Imagine, if you will, a massive role-playing game featuring guns, time travel, and a nasty alien invasion, all built on Skyrim's engine, with Skyrim's "Radiant AI" system.
A scientist has set out to create a geological map of Skyrim. It's kind of rough at this point, she admits, but it's still pretty awesome.
Each April first, Think Geek taunts us with their fake April Fool's Day products. While nothing will ever top the Tauntaun sleeping bag, this year's imaginary product list includes a big-mouthed Mon Calamari, an inflatable captain's chair, and the chance to smell like Daenerys Targaryen.
