Off-topic: Patreon just sent me a letter saying: “A new service fee of 2.9% + $0.35 will be paid by patrons for each individual pledge starting on December 18th.”
This seems horrible for $1 patrons. It looks like a money grab. I hope people doing well on Patreon get out ahead of this. I will probably cancel my pledges if this goes through.

Jim, I love you. You, good sir, are the Sir Elton John of video games. But I don’t think you’re being entirely fair to Bethesda Studios. Bethesda Softworks is the Zenimax publishing arm, they don’t Develop. Bethesda Studios are the developers, they operate independently from whatever shannigans Bethesda Softworks are up to. Ok, so yeah, that’s confusing, I’m not sure why won’t just call themselves Zenimax publishing or whatever, but they’re you go. Granted, Todd Howard did open his big mouth about the switch. But I’m pretty sure that Bethesda Studios is currently working on they’re next game, either Elder… Read more »

Hello mr moderater, why are my comments taking ages to get approved? It’s bad enough that I can’t get a password reset sent through to my hotmail account so I can continue with my initial log in, but now my new account isn’t working?

Just a thought: Generally speaking every time Skyrim has a patch released it basically breaks the entire infrastructure of the game as far as mods are concerned. Considering mods are the lifeblood of Skyrim and Bethesda knows this to the point they are constantly trying to make us pay for them I put forth this theory; Bethesda doesn’t want to fuck with the mod ecosystem when said ecosystem has already fixed all these problems. My assumption is they just don’t see the effort it would take to fix bugs as actually being worth it in the long run; most Skyrim… Read more »

The amount of leeway given to games like Skyrim is absurd. I love Bethesda’s open world games, but after so long without fixes there is no way I’m paying full price for the game again.

Peter Molyneux, Sean Murray, Jim rips on these guys forever, both forever branded as over-promising liars, frauds. It just blows my mind that Chris Roberts just flies under the radar. Consider this: Star Citizen this week started selling digital land with no mechanics or even a clear idea how it will be implemented in the final game, and now has taken over 172 million dollars in crowd funding. Chris Roberts, his wife, his brother have all become millionaires as part of this project. Check out the youtube video of a guy called boredgamer (a massive Star Citizen fan BTW and… Read more »

If what i was told was true that bethesda parent company zenmax did not think that skyrim would not be any good refused to finance it, claim that the elder scrolls on line was the way to go. And that their was no future in that skyrim game. LOL

This video caused me to stop and really come to terms with the fact that the reason my Bethesda games are still installed on my PC (TES III-V, Fallout 3 & NV) despite me seldom playing them these days is because I’m terrified of the work I’ll have to do to get them set up again if I ever uninstall them.

At this point though is anyone supprised that Bethesda did nothing to fix the bugs in Skyrim? True there is the possibility of Bethesda fixing their shit but that’s about as likly as Valve moderating the crap that’s being sold on Steam.

What happened to the Nvidia Shield that you have? I thought you could play Steam games on that portable or something?

Lastly and this maybe because I’ve spent the morning reading angry Bethesda and Woldenstein fans yelling at an article about difficulty setting (specifically how games that mock easy modes is insidious and rather outdated) but it feels like many of their fans will support Bethesda no matter what. Also (fan mode activated) Valenwood for Elder Scrolls and keep the Jungle environment, werecrocodiles, Super intelligent apes, migrating tree city, the cities made of bone and skin and the flowerpot shaped mountains (plus more diverse human selection), don’t do a Elder Scrolls 4 and Online and ripped all that out and it… Read more »

Doesn’t Jim have back problems? Is he actually going to wrestle?

The worse bug I ever had was a mission called Blood and Ice I think which was a murder case which would never work for me ever unless I did a convoluted work around. This was with both versions I played.

I read the title, and got ready to brawl. Shame you had to be so reasonable. Yeah, as much as I love Skyrim, the fact they didn’t fix the bugs for Switch was bullshit. I was fine when they didn’t for Special Edition, because they added console mod support, and the Unofficial Patch was the first thing I downloaded. But that raises the issue, why couldn’t Bethesda just copy the Unofficial Patch? I don’t mean steal it, but the work have already been done. Just open it up and take notes. My most annoying bug, Muiri. “Wow, an npc that’s… Read more »

So if Skyrim is the Cockroach what does that make GTAV, the grass?

Bad joke sorry. Agreed though, only bought it twice (3 times if you count the free legendary version) and fully agree with you. Like you said in the past given how many times have to patch their games, it’s quite crappy how they through them under the bus for their paid mods.

Speaking of which what’s happened with that? I haven’t heard much about that Creator’s Club thing in months.

Also (fan mode activated).
