Bethesda Celebrates 25 Years of Elder Scrolls with a Morrowind Giveaway


Bethesda is celebrating 25 years of The Elder Scrolls today. On this day back in 1994, Bethesda released the first Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Arena for DOS. And while it's not that easy to play the original Elder Scrolls on modern machines, you should still be able to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It's probably a good thing that FOR TODAY ONLY (March 25, 2019), you can get a free copy of Morrowind to keep forever and ever for the life of the Bethesda.net Launcher. Here is how you can snag your free copy of Morrowind, plus some other freebies. Do...
 

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Announced, Pre-orders Available Now


After multiple weeks and a few months of teases, including a long running ARG surrounding a dating app called Tinder, we now have an official announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Paradox Interactive made the big reveal just moments ago via a GDC party. The party was "supposed" to be for a new Tinder reveal but thanks to some unintentionally cheesy live-action role playing, it turned out to be a big reveal for Bloodlines 2.

This is a direct sequel to the previous title that came out back in 2004 on the very same day that Half-Life 2 was released....
 

Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

Library
First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...
 

Nintendo Embraces Indie - Cuphead, Darkwood, a Dancing Zelda, and More Revealed Today for Switch

The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...

    An EA spokesperson said that they are suspending development of future Battlefield 4 expansions in order to focus on getting the game to be playable for most users.

    EA Files Trademarks for Desert Strike

    Chances are you probably don't remember the Desert Strike series, or perhaps you're too young to even know what it is. EA has recently filed trademark registrations for "Desert Strike," giving hope that a new entry in the series may be coming.
    Back in the early 90s, that was the name of an isometric helicopter shoot 'em up released for the Mega Drive, SNES and Commodore Amiga - gamers step into the cockpit of an Apache helicopter in the middle of the Gulf War, capturing bad guys, rescuing hostages, and blowing stuff up. There's even a mission that involves protecting the President of the United States, in case you missed the

  • Lindsay Lohan Suing Rockstar Games Over Apparent Use of Her Likeness in Grand Theft Auto V

    How much of a washed-up, alcoholic, has-been idiot must someone be to sue a company thinking they used your likeness when the actual model that was actually hired revealed over a year ago what the reality is? According to TMZ, that doesn't much matter if you're Lindsay Lohan because she is suing Rockstar Games for allegedly using her image as the basis for the "bikini girl" used in promotional items for Grand Theft Auto V and/or potentially over a few in-game missions involving a wild actress that goes after paparazzi. Yes, this is real. Sure, there are some missions in the game featuring a character that may perhaps be based off of Lohan, but...
