This post is my guide to modding The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion with about fifty mods that work well together, don’t break immersion, and actually make Oblivion into a more modern and deep game. Feel free to choose which ones to install or use this guide as a stepping stone to learning about modding.
Video game publishers SEGA and developers The Creative Assembly announced on Thursday that they are teaming up with Games Workshop to make Total War: Warhammer. It has been known since 2012 that they were making a Warhammer based game but they have finally announced it.
TaleWorlds Entertainment announced yesterday that Mount & Blade Warband will get a new DLC called the Viking Conquest. The last bit of DLC for Mount & Blade Warband was the Napoleonic Wars DLC and this time it is going for the same amount of realism but set in the 8th century instead of the 19th century and will include a single player campaign. Viking Conquest will have a detailed Europe map, 300 locations, 21 kingdoms, 6 cultures, 200 historical characters, two religions, new battle systems, 15 companions, improved AI, siege warfare, new items and loads more.
Tripwire Interactive have once again returned with a special event for Halloween. Its called the Halloween Horror Double Feature and features a new Halloween map (Club Clandestine), Halloween zeds, new achievements and the Toy Master mod which replaces all enemies with evil toys. It’s also part of the Steam “Free Weekend Weekend” which means Killing Floor is on sale for up to 75% off, free to play over the weekend and offers new bundle DLC (which haven’t been added yet on Steam).
After about four years The Creative Assembly the developers of the Total War franchise have once again released their multiplayer campaign beta for people to try out in Empire: Total War. This is great news as even with Total War: Rome II coming out soon its good that the developers are still remembering their old games and Empire Total War is in my opinion the last great Total War game since the days of Medieval: Total War and Rome: Total War or at least the one I played the most in recent years. I didn’t get much into Total War: Shogun 2 even if it was quite good and mechanically sound.
The standalone zombie mod DayZ has had some screenshots of the game’s interiors released on the DayZ developer’s website. Dean Hall the main developer of the game had a few things to say about it.
A couple of months ago Valve announced that software would be sold through Stream. The first few software titles are now available on Steam for purchase.
Want to play the whole Baldur’s Gate franchise without having to stop or change games? A person over on the GOG.com forums called “GoJays2025” wrote a guide on the topic and GOG.com mentioned it recently on their news. Now I am going to give my take on how to do it with help from the guide I just mentioned.
About a month ago Arma II mod DayZ passed the 500,000-player mark. Now over one million have joined and tried out the game since it was released earlier this year.

Also interestingly there has been “3,849,464” murders, you traitors those are real people killing (virtual ones).
