The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Coming Soon to Consoles

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is set to make a comeback next month as it sees its release on both Xbox One and Playstation 4. According to the press release that went out yesterday, Tamriel Unlimited is turning EOL into a single purchase online game, meaning that once you buy the core game, there won’t be any monthly fees to speak of.

Shovel Knight Review

Shovel Knight, in the simplest of terms, is the ultimate Capcom NES game that never was. If you go further defining it, though, it’s much more than a mere retro-styled indie game. Yacht Club Games has lovingly created Shovel Knight to play like an NES game, sure, but their care went well beyond just emulating the look and feel of a game from that generation. For starters, it plays just like the aforementioned publisher’s games of Nintendo’s golden era console. That is, it’s a level based platformer, with each stage culminating in a boss fight. But even though it feels like an old game, Shovel Knight goes well beyond just borrowing their aesthetics, introducing modern elements into the mix, like the possibility of starting a new game plus playthrough, autosaves, and achievement-like feats. And while it’d be easy to give Yacht Games crap for putting...
