Could be worse, Bethesda could have hidden the old version of Skyrim on Steam (the one which thousands of mods worked with) so that only the new microtransactional special edition could be purchased... oh wait... they have

That trailer took me back to a time and place I'd long forgotten. It looks a little sparse needs more carpet.

I would if I could get past the Error 503 Service Unavailable - the store is overloaded with traffic. On my wish-list I saw Subnautica was 50% off

Tropico 5 complete collection with all DLC is 85% offReply

Yeah, it wasn't easy to compile this short list, let me tell you!

It's an old argument for new devs.

If they allow purchased skins, emotes to carry over for those 10 years they'll draw in Destiny players who lose everything in the Bungieverse

Creation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacementCreation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacement
Jac Atax Avatar
Was expecting this.
Mods give Elder Scrolls and Fallout games extraordinary longevity, this provides an ability for Bethesda to extend additional revenue to Bethesda way past the lifetime of the game. Having curated mods sounds like higher quality, but since Morrowind times official mods and DLC's have also messed up their own games. I suspect the 'official' content will reuse the best ideas of the free modding community as per the EULA Bethesda has for user content.Reply

The rest of the world don't like the paid mod, giving the middle finger to the devs who come up with this since the community believe that mods should be forever free, and Bethesda should keep their greedy hands off their mod access.


I think this was their third attempt on trying to introduced paid mods, and watch as this will ultimately backfire against them.

If you can get 5ghz through a single thread then maybe Morrowind would finally not be a slide show in Balmora.Reply

Omg so true, this game is so badly optimized... can't run this 2002 game at 60 fps with a 2010 CPU...

I don't know if the game is any good but I really enjoyed your write upReply
Ben Burns Avatar

Thanks Jac. It's obviously very early days for Worlds Adrift, but I can say with certainty that I found it to be a very chilled out experience, which is great because the weather is boiling hot.

Mass Effect: Andromeda's development woes were because Frostbite doesn’t like RPGsMass Effect: Andromeda's development woes were because Frostbite doesn’t like RPGs
Jac Atax Avatar
This is lame, blaming Frostbite instead of the writing department. Andromeda failed due to storyline, pacing, characters and poor UI design. DAI was far better than ME:A in all of the above and could have been improved on or at the worst duplicated.

And saying Frostbite does vehicles well is a bit rich, the Nomad was a vastly overhyped vehicle, I found it sluggish and boring to drive even with multiple upgrades, quite a bit like the game.

If the story and characters had been well written I wouldn't have cared about the animations and glitches, in all my years of gaming I've put up with a lot worse, however they failed to achieve the fundamentals of story driven RPG and maybe they should look at the race team's sense of direction before blaming the engine.Reply
Henjin Avatar

They don't really blame Frostbite, but rather the choice of Frostbite for ME:A. Frostbite is good, but may be not good enough for a space opera RPG like ME:A. Had they chosen a better suited engine, they could have been less struggle to make it work with their ideas, thus leaving them more time to polish and care for other matters. Of course, that wouldn't fix the writting, but at least, the game would have less problems.
