Ever since Bethesda has taken over the old iD Software licenses, they’ve been slowly bringing the classics into the modern era with Wolfenstein: The New Order and DOOM. Now, it’s Quake’s turn with Quake Champions, a mulitplayer experience that’s focusing...[Read More]

Did anyone even play Prey? The one that was released in 2006 was a fairly average first person shooter starring a Native American, similar to in how Turok played around with weapon archetypes, but didn’t really stand the test of time as a memorable shooter.

Last night at Bethesda’s E3 press release, there were a lot of things shown off. Probably the most anticipated (mostly due to the teasing of a leak) was the announcement of a Skyrim remaster. Yes, the leak was true. We are heading back into Skyrim.

Modding and Fallout is like peanut butter and jelly, they go so well together, that’s its weird to think about one without the other. Modding has always been a chore on consoles. Usually, modders would have to alter their systems’ files, a risk that can result in bricking the console. Bethesda made things easier with their Creation Kit through the years and now its coming to Fallout 4,...[Read More]
