Bethesda, I’m not really sure why you had any worries about copyright infringement to begin with, but seriously, what Scrolls has turned out to be is anything but.
Indie darling Mojang has pretty much been the loudest and most vocal of the indie gaming community (and that’s a pretty hard title to hold with Phil Fish in the game). What with all the lawsuits from mega-titan Bethesda and even going so far as to challenge them to a round of Quake 3 to settle the dispute. They also tend to talk up a storm about programming techniques and what they’d like to put in their games and how or why some of those things don’t come into fruition. If they talked anymore they’d be encroaching on Peter Molyneux territory.
Indeed, Scrolls is actually about what any of us who were actually listening expected. It was announced as a trading card type game around a year ago and…then we pretty much didn’t hear anything about it until the whole Bethesda showdown last year (they settled out-of-court by the way).
For what its worth take a look after the jump, personally I think it looks fun, but it doesn’t really interest me much more than many of the other Heroes of Might and Magic games would. For that matter it doesn’t really interest me much more than a lot of Facebook games would, but I’ll reserve my judgement for an official (read: beta) release.
Skyrim is a jealous game.
Its jealous when you start to play other games. How dare you even consider that there’s another game comparable to the might and majesty of Tamriel? Are dragons and sorcery not enough to satisfy your lust for fantasy? Well, maybe it just hasn’t been trying hard enough. Two big updates to Skyrim hit the news this week. Hit the jump to learn more!
Full disclosure: I usually get these pictures from Reddit, but I typically come up with my own silly title. This week I blatantly ripped off the name and I don’t care, because its perfect. I think there’s a few people out there that like that Game of Thrones show, right? Like, everyone in existence including me!!! Yes, I’m a huge fan and I haven’t met a soul yet who doesn’t like it. But since those people would be literally decapitated in public I think I can understand why they haven’t spoken up yet.
I’ve been thinking of this concept for awhile now. In this video I ride around most of the perimeter of Skyrim on my horse Shadowmere.
