Just in time for the weekend, we’ve got a lovely new Skywind trailer for you. “The Road Most Traveled” is the latest offering from the incredibly ambitious project attempting to recreate all of Morrowind inside the Skyrim engine. This preview features chunks of the road from Seyda Neen, where new characters enter Morrowind, to nearby Balmora, where the first quest is fulfilled.


Gmod aims to get your mods working with a minimum of fiddling and fuss

The joys of being a PC gamer! Thanks to the modability of our platform, only we can patch the ugly out of a game, utilize tools to help us keep track of WoW's economy, and randomly slap Iron Man into GTA4, no questions asked. That's pretty badass. We understand that some folks, though, don't always have the time to unzip things, crawl through directories hidden all over their PCs, do forum research, and tussle with conflicting mods. Cue Gmod. This mod-management tool's aim is to greatly ease the mod-enabling process, expediting, say, the restoration of truly fearsome dragons in Skyrim again.

Since Morrowind, the default way to play any Elder Scrolls game has been in first-person, with your weapons and/or sizzling magic hands visible in front of you. In an interview with Digital Spy, Game Director Matt Firor revealed that this will not be the case in The Elder Scrolls Online. While zooming into first-person will be possible, as in most MMOs, your hands and gear won't be visible, and the game isn't designed to be played from that perspective.

Ten essential Oblivion mods

Tom Senior at

Over the last six years an army of modders have been hard at work, trying to make Oblivion into the game they always imagined it should be.

Punch a unicorn! Fighting nature in Oblivion

A four-year-old game, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion continues to draw thousands thanks to a hallmark of PC gaming--freedom. The game raises you from a rutty hole in the ground, and with a "go-on, git!" and kick, you're in a world were just about anything is possible. Today, I'm an orc. My mission: Kick. Nature's. Ass.
