I have written about amazing screenshots from Skyrim before that uses certain mods, but these screenshots take it 10 steps further! These were taken from a game using 100 of the best graphical improvement mods for Skyrim to make a game that looks light years better than the original game and gives us an insight of what we might come to expect as standard from the next-gen consoles.
Ilya Nazarov is an awesome concept artist who works at Bethesda, and has created images for Metroid Prime, Donkey Kong, Tribes and Lord of the Rings games.
Happy 20th Birthday Wolfenstein 3D! To celebrate this Bethesda has released a free browser version of the game so you can relive the mastery or, if you are like me, you can enjoy it for the first time.
The above is a great directors commentary video of the game from the co-founder of id Software from th legendary John Carmack.
Machinama released a great ‘All Your History’ video on id Software (above) last year too, which is worth a watch.
I am not sure if these Kinect commands for Skyrim improve the game or are a bit gimmiky. I did use the voice control in Mass Effect 3 for the first couple of hours but then I couldn’t be bothered and just used the controller. I have only had time to play 15hours of Skyrim so far so I will be able to see how useful these voice controls really are throughout the game, but I think I will end up just using the controller like in Mass Effect 3.
This trailer for Dishonored from Arkane Studios and Bethesda Softworks is beautiful. It has a lovely style and the 3D is great. I cannot wait to see more about this game
Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.
In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
