E3 2018: Hands-on with Bethsoft’s Elder Scrolls: Blades (yes, in portrait mode)

Out of all the announcements Bethesda had at its pre-E3 presser, The Elder Scrolls: Blades was the last title I thought we’d be offered. Oh, we had asked about others, but they sadly weren’t being shown, nor did they have anyone around to answer questions. Beyond the basics, Blades was the same.

The author was bemused to find that he’d been reported for “intentional feeding” when in fact,...

With the South African story line done, Massively OP’s MJ is ready to move back to the desert in Secret World Legends to finish up her goal of completing everything in each zone.
