Bethesda did their conference, and much to the dismay of many people it was considered by many to be the worst of the entire show, such a shame. There were a few interesting things that showed up, such as a brand new Wolfenstein sequel which seems to involve the Nazis taking over America, a sequel to The Evil Within which should hopefully allow the developers to try and scare us again and they also showed off gameplay of the new Fallout 4 VR and the newly announced DOOM VR.
However you’re here for controversy and controversy you shall get. Introducing the Creation Club, a system that will allow modders to work directly with Bethesda to create more polished mods and sell them for ‘points’ on a Bethesda controlled store. To those that this may have passed by, they are trying paid mods again, and this time they are making it integrated into both Skyrim and Fallout 4. Now while this may not sound too bad when you consider that the modders will be working with Bethesda directly keep in mind that this essentially makes them outsourced creators who are doing Bethesda’s work for them. It’s creating a bad work environment, and will no doubt split the modding community between those who are firmly against this and those who want to be compensated for their efforts to the community. Time will tell if this system is as bad as it sounds, all I know is that I am saddened to see Bethesda go down this road.
Another one bites the dust, Ubisoft next time and I am excited to talk about this one. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
