How many Skyrim questlines can I finish before starting the game?

I’ve mentioned before the Alternate Start mod for Skyrim. If you don’t feel like going back to read the article, the gist of it is this. It’s a mod that allows you to start in a different location than the standard “you’re a prisoner going to be executed in Helgen” start. Instead, you wake up more »


Omega Quintet Reactions: Can we drop that creepy breathing thing?

I’ve been spending a lot of time this month with Idea Factory and Compile Heart’s new PS4 RPG, Omega Quintet. The first game I ever played from Compile Heart was one of the Agarest War sequels. I remember very little about it, other than it being pretty boring, but one thing stood out – the breathing. Ugh, more »

Bloodborne patch 1.03 slashes loading times and squashes bugs

Bloodborne patch 1.03 released earlier today, bringing with it an end to the game’s notoriously lengthy loading times. The PlayStation Japan page confirms that loading has been reduced by five to 15 seconds depending on the areas loaded.

Steam Workshop now supports paid mods, starting with Skyrim

User-made mods can now be bought and sold through the Steam Workshop. Although a wealth of player modifications have been available free through the Steam Workshop for years, such content has never been sold, barring a few rare instances of developer-sanctioned DLC. This meant the vast majority of mods were passion projects. Thus the aim of the new more »

Killing Floor 2 comes to Steam Early Access

Killing Floor 2, the unabashedly gory sequel to Tripwire Interactive’s original horde shooter, is now playable via Steam’s Early Access program. The current version of the game represents a “polished beta,” Tripwire said, is fully playable in co-op or single-player, and does not have any game-breaking bugs.

The Elder Scrolls Online will cost you 65GB of your console’s hard drive

Installing PS4 and Xbox One titles often feels like offering a “bite” of your sandwich to a tyrannosaurus. Here to take one of the biggest bites yet is The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited which will require a whopping 65GB of hard drive space on PS4 and Xbox One. This will be split between the 50GB more »

Nintendo eShop Update for April 23, 2015

Hey, guess what? Today’s update is a wash! Nothing to see here. Mario Kart 8 has the second DLC pack, Super Smash Bros. has Mewtwo. Those are what matters. Not the one game and two games. None of them are of any consequence now. All that matters is Animal Crossing in Mario Kart 8. (Delicious!) more »

Starbound’s ship-based pets aren’t too important yet

Starbound received a rather large update this month that does some things. Good things, on the whole, but also some that are rather, well, there. Adding the Ark as a location from the transportation gate is one. I don’t want to get into it, but basically it allows you to visit a temple, see some more »
