Starfield is Bethesda's big new release, but now that it's finally out in the wild, some have already turned their attention toward any incoming news on The Elder Scrolls VI. While some always assumed... the game was a good way off, we now know not to expect it for another two to three years at the earliest. Per The Verge, as a part of the ongoing FTC vs. Microsoft case over the latter's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft released a document to the court featuring a chart illustrating its approach to releasing Bethesda games since purchasing the publisher. It lists each title released under the Microsoft banner with details such as its release window and targeted platforms. The Elder Scrolls VI's section confirms two big things.

Mortal Kombat 1 isn't even technically out yet until tomorrow, but some players are already pulling off some touch of death combos. You're not going to be surprised to hear that combos are an... incredibly important aspect of pretty much all fighting games, but that doesn't mean they're an easy thing to pull off. You need to memorise all the potential inputs, and you obviously have to consider what your opponent is going to do. But sometimes, when things line up just right, you can pull off a touch of death combo, and almost completely obliterate whoever you're up against. A little bit of context: in fighting games, touch of death combos essentially put your opponent in a position where they can't react at all due to constantly being stunlocked, letting you whittle down their health to zero,...

If you've been unfortunate enough to witness the often exhausting and embarrassing discourse around video games, you'll no doubt be familiar with a recent one involving Starfield. It has nothing to do... with the game's artistic, narrative, or even technical merits. It does, however, involve a very angry white dude absolutely having a meltdown about... the option to pick pronouns in the game's character creator! So furious was their rage that you could feel them growing new capillaries on camera. Though modders are mostly talented creators who often work to solve problems, bring crucial missing features to the game and overhaul outdated features (we have a whole list of some of their best Starfield mods to prove it) - some just have enough know-how to create work that keeps them secure in...
It's becoming increasingly unclear how early The Elder Scrolls 6 is going to release, as Microsoft itself has suggested it could be out as soon as 2026. Back in 2018, when The Elder Scrolls 6 was... first announced, none of us could imagine that five years later we haven't seen a single second of gameplay. But here we are, still waiting on seeing more, and we don't even have a release window, nor what platforms it will even launch on. Xbox head Phil Spencer has previously implied it won't be coming to PS5, and earlier this year he said the game was at least five years away as part of the Federal Trade Commission's trial against Microsoft over its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Now, though, again as part of the case, Microsoft appears to be claiming it could be out as early as 2026, and...

Starfield is hitting the spot for a lot of players when it comes to that need for something sci-fi, but it isn't the only game within the genre that joined Game Pass this month that's worth your time.... While it first launched on PlayStation back in 2021, Heart Machine's most recent title Solar Ash finally arrived on Xbox and PC last week. Despite how our own Tom Orry felt in his review, I found the game to be quite captivating, from the Jet-Set-Radio-like movement to the Shadow-of-the-Colossus-style boss battles. There was one thing in particular that drew me in most of all though: the vibes. To me, probably the most fundamentally important part of sci-fi is having the right vibe. I think nothing demonstrates this better than those classic book covers for 70s sci-fi novels that tell you...
A Microsoft document has confirmed The Elder Scrolls 6 will skip PS5 in favour of launching on Xbox and PC only.
We're one month away now from the start of Diablo 4's second season, Season of Blood. If you're keeping track of how Blizzard likes to reveal updates and upcoming features for its game, you'll know... that we're quite close now to the next developer livestream. While Blizzard hasn't said when that's going to be, the developer is so confident in the amount of new content in Season of Blood that it plans to host two livestreams that could each run for two hours! This interesting fact was revealed by Diablo boss Rod Fergusson on Twitter. So much stuff in #Diablo4 Season 2 that @PezRadar will need to host two deep dive streams to cover it all! #SeasonofBlood

Mortal Kombat 1 has already been out for a few days for players that have early access, and many have quickly discovered that its Nintendo Switch port looks a bit… funky. Hearing that Mortal... Kombat 1 would be coming to Switch alongside PlayStation and Xbox, and that it wouldn't be a cloud port, was definitely a welcome surprise initially. It did of course come with questions as to how well it would run, given that the Switch isn't the most powerful console around. Now that people have been able to play it, it's safe to say that while for the most part it's a solid port, there's one area where the game feels a bit off: characters' faces. Overall, the models honestly look as good as you could expect them to. But when it comes to facial animations, everyone is looking a bit dead-eyed....
The internet is roasting the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 because of its downgraded visuals and high price.
Starfield has been out for long enough now that anyone interested in playing it likely already has. But just how many of the game's millions of players stopped playing before finishing the first... mission? Well, according to achievement stats from TrueAchievements, around 25%! The For All, Into the Starfield achievement is awarded the first time you go to space, which happens maybe 30 minutes into the game. After a brief tutorial and some combat, you meet one of the game's major NPCs, and he gives you his ship. As soon as you leave the surface of the planet and take to space, the achievement should unlock. According to the numbers, however, 75% of players did that, which seems a little low considering how early into the game that happens, and how practically unavoidable the achievement is.
