Six years (and three ports) later, Bethesda has finally ported The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, offering a new way to experience this RPG classic on your TV.


This year, Bethesda has launched two new versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- one for Nintendo's hybrid console, the Nintendo Switch, as well as a VR port for the PlayStation 4. On top of that, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR also serves as the first of three VR titles released by Bethesda this year (with the other two being DOOM VFR and Fallout 4 VR), and thankfully this version offers an original take on this six-year-old title....

League of War: VR Arena Review — Interactive Bored Games

MunkyFun's League of War: VR Arena for PlayStation VR (via PS4) is rough at best, offering a fun core mechanic and not much else for a hefty price tag.


I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been giving my PlayStation VR the love it deserves. After an enthusiastic launch, I fell out of touch and started giving attention to newer products on the market -- every once in a while, donning the headset for one of the many notable launches. And with a slew of PlayStation 4 games with VR compatibility on the horizon, I've taken the headset out of storage, Windex-ed the OLED screen, and started checking out the recent releases -- starting with board-game come to life title, ...

Developer Experiment 7's Catan VR brings the iconic Settlers of Catan to life with a loving adaptation of the game in virtual reality.


When it comes to tabletop gaming and "the classics," few hold the regard of something like Settlers of Catan. Amassing over 22 million sales over the course of its 20+ years since release, Catan is a game that's synonymous with tabletop gaming. Thanks to the immersive powers of virtual reality, tabletop players will get to experience the game in a whole new way later this year with the upcoming Catan VR....

Yet, they aren't gone forever, and they will return in some form after the development team changes their inner workings. At the moment, we do not know how....

In a year filled with amazing games like 2017, the DualShockers staff shares a few of the indie experiences that gamers shouldn't miss from this year.


As we get closer and closer to the end of the 2017, it's a great time to take a step back and reflect on how great this year was in terms of video game releases. Frankly, 2017 was an embarrassment of riches when it came to games that saw huge levels of critical and commercial success, from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, to Persona 5, to NieR: Automata, to Horizon: Zero Dawn, to the numerous others released throughout the year. The list truly goes on....
