FPS-RPG Project: The Begining

I recently had another game development itch so I subscribed to Unreal Engine 4 and gave it a go. So far, with the help of Blender, MakeHuman, WorldMachine and Paint.NET I’ve created, rigged and animated first person arms for use in UE4, as well as several modular dungeon pieces and other various models and landscapes. …

Review: Elder Scrolls Online

Elder Scrolls Online takes place during the Second Era of The Elder Scrolls universe, before all of the singleplayer games. Tamriel is world divided, three alliances fight for the throne and right to rule the realm.

Before now, Shadowrun has been a very popular tabletop game, an action RPG on the Sega Genesis and even a team-based multiplayer FPS.

Elder Scrolls Online Beta: Alliance War

Last ESO beta weekend I got to try out the Alliance War PvP. Currently it’s the only way to PvP in ESO. It plays very similar to Guild Wars 2’s ‘World versus World’ where three factions battle for control of castles, resources and other strategic locations in Cyrodiil only with a much bigger map. This …
