Gaming Today Fallout 4 PS4 Mod Support: Should we be worried?

It's been over a month now since Bethesda indefinitely delayed mod support for Fallout 4 on PS4, and we've had literally no news about the matter from any trusted source since. Is it time to get worried, and what does this mean for Skyrim on PS4? I'm still confident that if Bethesda can make this happen, they will: they've gone too far to back down now. The...

Gaming Today Civilization 6 modability will make us "go nuts"

At least, that is the rather confident claim being made by the developers behind the game, but are they right?

Gaming Today Microsoft make Minecraft modding easy

While creating custom mods for Minecraft isn't something new, it's never been the most user-friendly of things to do. This is all set to change, however, as Microsoft are making it much easier by adding simple "modding" options to the game. This isn't really a massive surprise; Microsoft have been pushing Minecraft as a tool to get children interested in pr...

 

Gaming Today Mount&Blade II will have a primary focus on modding

Korneel Guns, a developer for studio TaleWorlds, has stated during E3 that "mods at the front of our development ", and that the team has been focused on mod support since day one.

Gaming Today PS4 Mod Limit for Fallout 4 is 900mb, no sound...

Todd Howard, famous for telling sweet little lies (according to YouTube, at least), yesterday admitted that Bethesda are currently struggling overcoming some limitations when it comes to modding on PS4. The problems are two fold; licensing issues mean that there can be no new or altered sounds in the PS4 version. Apparently this is due to the proprietary so...

Gaming Today Do we really NEED Skyrim Re-mastered?

It's nearly E3 time, and that means, of course, that "leaks", rumours, and the tallest tales you can imagine are flying around the internet, some of which will be true, a lot of which will be a big, fat, disappointing lie; but is the rumour of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered likely to be true? One of the weirdest, albeit not impossible, rumours doing...

James Schall, Digital Distribution Director at SEGA, has stated that the ability to mod classic Mega Drive titles will bring a resurgence to classic game sales, and help stem the prolific levels of piracy that old-school games suffer from thanks to the wide-spread availability of emulators and roms.

Gaming Today Fallout 4 Mod Hub: 50% more use on Xbox over PC

With today's launch of Xbox One mod support for Fallout 4, there have been a lot of questions raised by the status quo; will Xbox Mods take off?
