No Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4, Bethesda confirms

No Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4, Bethesda confirms

After players have been waiting for months now, developer Bethesda has revealed that its games on PlayStation 4 — specifically Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim remaster — will not support the anticipated mods feature. Now, this isn't a case of Bethesda being jerks and having lied to us all this time, or even one of them not being able to get the feature to work on PS4. Instead, it seems that Sony has ruled that it will not approve user mods in a way that Bethesda feels they "should work."

NVIDIA reveals ‘Vault 1080’ mod for Fallout 4

NVIDIA reveals ‘Vault 1080’ mod for Fallout 4

NVIDIA recently unleashed a slew of new graphics cards, but judging from a new announcement on the NVIDIA blog, that isn't all the company has been working hard on. NVIDIA announced today that it will soon be releasing a mod all its own for Bethesda's Fallout 4, and just as you'd expect from a company that primarily deals in GPUs, this one is meant to push graphics cards a bit harder than the base game.

Android root – the lowdown and pitfalls of the super user

Android root – the lowdown and pitfalls of the super user

Our smartphones and tablets today have become powerful computers, almost matching the cheapest "netbook" grade laptops. We feel they can almost do anything and everything. In theory, they can. In reality, however, they are limited by the boundaries that platform makers like Google and Apple impose on them. Some of those limitations are inherent in the platform itself or the hardware it runs on. Others, however, can be unlocked by the process now known as rooting (for Android) or jailbreaking (for iOS). In the past, rooting was not only something for power users to play with but somewhat even recommended for more adventurous ones to squeeze out the best functionality from their smartphones. But does rooting still have that sway today? What do we gain and what do we lose when we set our smartphones free? Read on the find out.

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

If you haven't picked up the new Doom game, I highly recommend it. While the multiplayer leaves a lot to be desired, the single-player campaign is well worth it. If you can't afford it, or your machine can't handle it, that's okay. You can soon get some of the new Doom flavor in the original games.

Add navigation to your Escape’s MyFord Touch on the cheap

Add navigation to your Escape’s MyFord Touch on the cheap

If you have a Ford Escape with MyFord Touch interface, you've probably noticed that there's an option for navigation. Unfortunately, if your SUV didn't come with that feature, it'll cost a fair bit to enable it. The price is somewhere around $900, which is a lot to add simple navigation to a device. But one person has found a clever way of getting around that.

Crash Bandicoot PS2 mod is complete with Aku Aku mask

Crash Bandicoot PS2 mod is complete with Aku Aku mask

There are a few titles that really stand out when I think about the original PlayStation. Final Fantasy VII, Spyro the Dragon, and of course, Crash Bandicoot. Sadly, only two of these series are still alive and well (okay, I wouldn't say that Skylanders is doing Spyro any real justice) with poor Crash being left out in the cold. However, his fans haven't forgotten him.

Nexus 5 gets modded with a microSD slot

In a world where smartphone cameras are taking bigger pictures, and apps are getting larger, we need more space on our phones. Unfortunately, most manufacturers are still charging a massive premium for anything larger than 16GB, and failing to include an option for additional storage. So what do you do when you need more space on your phone? You tear it apart and add a microSD card slot.

Mod turns Jedi Academy into a 1v1 Star Wars fighting game

Mod turns Jedi Academy into a 1v1 Star Wars fighting game

Back in 1997, we were graced with one of the weirdest additions to the Star Wars franchise. No, I'm not talking about Sy Snootles getting a CGI makeover. Rather, I'm talking about the release of Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi for the original Playstation. It was a bizzare fighting game that frankly, was pretty terrible, with its only redeeming quality being that it was something new with Star Wars on it.

Add New Vegas-style traits to Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is a great game, for many reasons. However, just because it's great, doesn't mean that it isn't lacking in some departments. One of the things missing is the trait system, that many people enjoyed in Fallout: New Vegas. Thankfully, traits are coming back, in the form of a mod.

Fallout 4 mod adds seasons to the game

We know that war never changes, but what about the seasons? In the world of Fallout, everything seems to be frozen in a bubble of time. Sure, crops grow, but aside from that, the trees and other vegetation remain exactly the same. Thankfully one creative modder set out to fix this little detail.

Modders hack PS4 to run Linux and Pokemon

Modders hack PS4 to run Linux and Pokemon

It's been some since we've heard about impressive mods to get game consoles running software and games they're not meant to, but thanks to Failoverflow, a collective of console hackers, there's something new to closeout 2015 with. The group has managed to hack Sony's PlayStation 4 to install the Linux operating system on it, taking advantage of the console's fairly standard PC architecture.
