To add your own mod to the Steam Skyrim Workshop, the file size had to be trimmed down to 100MB. As of this week, Bethesda has, in their own words, "removed the restraining bolt" for the file size, allowing modders to upload their projects for however big they need to be!

This will be part of the Steam Creation Kit update 1.9.33 that will roll out this week. In addition, the Skyrim Launcher will no longer download mods; all mods will be handled through the Steam client.

Bethesda is going to beta test these features this week before releasing them to the wild. If you want to help them test, they have posted how to join in on their blog.

Epic Games reveals that, as of today, Unreal Engine 4 is available to everyone for free, and they have also stressed that all future updates will be free.

Word is that "anyone can download the engine and use it for everything from game development, education, architecture, and visualization to VR, film and animation. When shipping a game or application, developers pay a 5% royalty on gross revenue after the first $3,000 per product, per quarter. Epic succeeds only when creators succeed."

"In Epic’s 25 years as an independent company, we have seen no time of greater opportunity for developers than today. Whatever your development aspirations, Epic stands with you, both as a technology provider, and as a fellow game developer counting on UE4 to power our own games,” said Epic CEO Tim Sweeney.

Many agree that Unity is still the best option for beginners, although I am curious to see what this move will mean to the future of game development.

Mortal Kombat X is going mobile. The iOS/Android game will tie into the main game, allowing for content to be unlocked in the main game from playing the mobile one and vice versa.

The mobile game will be a card game, which will also sport some fighting between the cards. I suppose it's like a Pokémon card game or Hearthstone, except you do see the characters actually duking it out. The trailer depicting how this will go down is below.

The mobile Mortal Kombat X will release on April 14th alongside the main game.

Game Developers Conference (GDC) hasn't officially gotten underway yet, but announcements are already pouring out to start the GDC hype. This morning, HTC announced that they are also getting into the virtual reality game by unveiling their new VR headset at a press conference in Spain. Behold, the Vive headset:

So what's the big deal about this one? Well, HTC is developing it in collaboration with Valve. The dev kit currently offers 1200X1080 displays that will run at 90 fps, 360-degree field of vision, a gyrosensor, accelerometer, and a laser position sensor to track head movement.

Their goal is to have Vive dev kits ready this spring, with consumer versions by the end of the year. They will have more info at their official panel at GDC.

Oh how Japan loves its countdown clocks on websites. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain hosts just such a countdown clock, ticking down 48 hours until the next announcement. If only the TV show Kiefer Sutherland, the new voice of Solid Snake, starred in was called 48 instead of 24. I'm sure that could mean a Half-Life 3 conspiracy. 

So we should have a new announcement Wednesday, March 4th at 6 a.m. PST. That sounds way too early for a panel at GDC, which starts tomorrow, but it's a perfect time to make an announcement before the chaos of GDC gets underway that day. I'm predicting that the announcement will be quite boring, such as a release date for this fall.

Someone clearly thinks this is still happening. Now either Gabe has gone completely mad after the whole world still dishing out lame Half-Life 3 jokes or it could be that Valve is finally making the decision to unwrap the thick curtain that's been around for one of of the most anticipated games of all time.

Apparently there was a recent Steam update with a mysterious “App 323900?" This app came out with a Half Life 3 logo. Valve actually responded and pulled App 323900, but not before the hungry eyes of the Internet had their peek and say. Gabe Newell himself took the time to respond to this by saying that they're not ready to make any announcements for HL3 - the usual kick in the balls by Gaben.

The rumor mill about HL 3 has started turning again now that Valve set their appearance at the Game Developers Conference set for March 3, 2015, with plans to host a “Physics For Programmers: Physics Optimization Strategies” panel. And because it's March 3, now everyone is interpreting that as a sign from God, sorry, Gaben.

Think what you will. I'd rather sulk and hum, like GLaDOS, while gently stabbing myself in the eye.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power has just came out of the blue. That's right, Frozenbyte has officially confirmed the third installment in the highly successful puzzle-themed platformer. Check out the first trailer below:

The game's most likely being prepared for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

No further info or media was given, apart from the blurb: "The Three Heroes embark on a new adventure through an enchanting fairytale world full of wonders, puzzles, dangerous foes and strange magic - coming 2015!"

"Cute game. Doesn't seem all that different from it's predecessors though. Safe play. - optimus slime"5


There's nothing to fear, but the wrath of the Queen. In order to be yourself in this universe you need to master this look. That's a look that governs man, woman and beast.

I feel a tincy-wincy itsy-bitsy bit better today, folks. Still, waiting on the artist to deliver the comic. I don't know what's taking him so long... Oh right, the guy has a little human nipper in his house and I have some idea of how chaotic that can be. And now I have to go because my daughter is bugging me about making a shopping list which includes food, drink and pencils.
