We have already informed you about the Skyrim Forge $15,000 Modding Challenge. Now Curse has announced that the giveaway deadline has been extended. The new deadline is now January 31st, 2012.
This hopefully will give you modders plenty of time to work with the new toolkit that Bethesda is providing. It is now extended past the holiday season in hopes of giving you guys all the time you need to create some awesome new content and upload it to SkyrimForge.com!
Soon, Skyrim mods are even going to be available via the Curse Client! The Curse Client is used by over 2 million gamers each month to easily keep their mods up to date and to install new mods in just a few clicks. Previously, Curse had been looking at using CTOC; however, hearing the…Read more >
We have previously reported that Bethesda Softworks demanded that Mincraft's creator Notch change the name of his new game, titled Scrolls, as it infringes on Bethesda's Elder Scrolls trademark.
Now Notch has tweeted that the case is actually going to court. Do you think that Bethesda has a case here and Scrolls does sound too similar?

The first screenshot of a Dunmer (or Dark Elf) thief in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been released by Bethesda via the official Elder Scrolls Facebook page, after a poll among fans on what characters they'd like to see (all of the promo pics so far have shown a warrior Nord).
How do you like the screenshot? And what kind of player character would you like to see next?Read more >
Notch, the creator of the indie video game Minecraft, has tweeted that apparently Bethesda Softworks lawyers are after his company Mojang, claiming that the title of his new game, titled Scrolls, infringes on The Elder Scrolls trademarks and will be confused with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Bethesda wants Mojang to change its new game's title, or else the matter will likely end up in court.
Bethesda's fondness of litigation is quite well known (for example their long lasting lawsuit against Interplay over the rights to Fallout Online), but I think we can all agree that harassing the makers of indie games is pretty low. Can anyone in their right mind actually confuse Notch's game with Skyrim? I very much doubt it. And "scrolls" itself is a rather …Read more >
