Skyrim released today on Playstation VR. The VR version manages to capture the game’s scale and beauty in astounding new ways, but you might need to equip a barf bag alongside your ancient nordic axe.
Today, Bethesda is releasing their excellent role-playing adventure Skyrim for Nintendo Switch and VR. It’s a massive game, with hundreds of hours of exploration, magic and mayhem.
How does the seminal role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim perform on a handheld console with the processing power of a high-end tablet? Pretty good, as it turns out.
This week, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes to the Nintendo Switch. It will join previous releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4. Above are only three of the versions, but let’s see how all of them stack up.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is about injury. From crippled heroes to resistance leaders grappling with PTSD, the game’s cast of heroes bears deep wounds that recall the all-too-real injuries of war veterans, victims, and those who would ignore them.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus’s first round of downloadable content has unlocked. The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero blend pulp sensibilities with strong levels design to create a fun package that shows a lot of promise.
The idea of a shared universe between Doom and Wolfenstein goes all the way back to Doom II, but it’s never been officially confirmed. A special weapon at the end of Wolfenstein 2 is further evidence that the games share a common timeline.
Wolfenstein’s BJ Blazkowicz is one of the original first person shooter protagonists. He is a muscle bound action hero, the all-American army man. Through examining BJ’s body, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus paints a thin line between power fantasy and Aryan ideals.
The warm sun beats down on a main street in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, just in time for the Victory Day parade. Uniformed SS march down swastika-filled streets to thunderous applause. By the old diner, two members of the Ku Klux Klan practice their German. Everyone is white and happy. And it is so fucked up.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus opens with a nightmare. This deep descent into BJ Blazkowicz’ personal hell highlights the personal costs of violence in the home and shows how oppression and hate repeat themselves.
When we meet Sebastian Castellanos at the beginning of The Evil Within 2, he’s a broken man. The mind-bending events of the previous installment fractured his psyche. He blames himself for not being able to save his daughter Lily from a house fire, and his wife left him. He’s been booted from the police force and he…
Because Skyrim’s dragons and dead guys were never quite tough enough, the game is now adding something more dangerous: weather and hunger.
The first hands-on impressions of Doom’s surprise Nintendo Switch version have hit the Internet, and it sounds like the demonic shooter performs quite well on Nintendo’s diminutive game slab.
Despite grand promises at E3 this year, Bethesda’s conceptual sequel to paid mods, the Creation Club, recently debuted in Fallout 4 with milquetoast fare like a ten-years-too-late horse armor gag. Skeptical fans weren’t thrilled. Now modders have taken matters into their own hands.
The upcoming Switch version of Doom won’t come with multiplayer on the cartridge, Bethesda told Engadget. You’ll have to download a free update to play with other people. SnapMap, the game’s level editor, won’t be available at all on Switch. These are the sacrifices we make to play games on the go, huh?
Hope you like the idea of taking Bethesda games with you on the go, Switch owners.
Today, Bethesda showed the world what we can expect from the totally-not-paid-mods-that-you-can-still-spend-money-on system, Creation Club. Mostly, the first batch of offerings are disappointing, but hey. Remember Oblivion’s controversial horse armor?
Humble’s celebrating QuakeCon with a sale on all your favorite Bethesda games today, including titles from the Fallout, Doom, Prey, Dishonored, and Elder Scrolls series (including the really old games), just for starters. This isn’t a Humble bundle; you’ll pay a specific price for each title, but a portion of the…
Brink was weird. It mashed together multiplayer gunplay with single-player narrative, then spiced up its chunky concoction with parkour and levels set on floating cities (because global warming). It’s also telling that I speak about it in the past tense, because while it continues to exist, you could be forgiven for…
Quake Champions will enter early access on Aug. 22 with new maps, features, and the DOOM Slayer as a new champion. Also available is a champions pack, which will unlock all champions now and forever for $29.99.
