The greatest tragedy in my life is that I am allergic to cats. I’d normally supplant my desire for cat ownership by getting one in a video game, but, a cursory look at the mods on Nexus shows me that video game cats in popular games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 aren’t quite right. Here are the things Bethesda games get wrong about virtual cats, and the ways highly-endorsed cat mods on Nexus fix those issues. You Can’t Just Summon A Cat Out Of Thin Air Have you ever wanted a cat but just couldn’t have one? I do, all day. Well, if you need a cat ASAP in Fallout 4, Craftable Cats has your back. With this mod, you can just go into the decor menu when you’re building a base, and you’ll be able to pluck a cat out of thin air. “I wanted some cats for my settlements, so I made this,” Mm137 writes. “Each cat adds +1 happiness. They don’t do anything else, they’re just cats.” Advertisement Um, excuse you? Cats don’t need to do anything. Isn’t just having a cat enough? They Aren’t Literally Your Cat Cats are missing from both Skyrim and the Skyrim…

Picture the scene: It’s launch day, and after keeping a close eye on ‘Game X’ for months — years, even — the wait is finally over. If you chose to pre-order, ‘Game X’ likely popped through your letterbox in time for breakfast, otherwise you’d typically pay a visit to your local store in order to pick up a copy, hot off the shelf. Tearing the cellophane off your shiny new timesink — providing you favored physical over digital, of course — is an innocent thrill that all players can relate to on some level. But there’s another, near-universal feeling that many of us have felt on launch days gone by, and that’s frustration. Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat; launch day should be cause for celebration on both ends of the industry’s production line. For the developer, it’s that oh-so-sweet moment of crossing the finish line and shipping a product to market that embodies years of hard graft, while the consumer, having spent the entire dev cycle looking on from afar, finally has the opportunity to lay hands on the finished product. Known Shippable But that’s just it; the term “finished product” doesn’t necessarily carry the same…

[embedded content] In case you missed it, Fallout 4 recently received update 1.9 on PlayStation 4, which added enhanced PS4 Pro support. In case you’re wondering how much of a difference the patch makes, then look no further. YouTube user Candyland has offered us a side-by-side comparison in the video above, giving us an idea of what to expect on the Pro. We’re told that the improved draw distance makes a “huge” difference. The Pro version now runs at native 1440p resolution, complete with enhanced lighting and graphic features, including enhanced Godray effects and enhanced draw distance for trees, grass, objects, and NPCs. The 461MB update, which released on Thursday, also added a number of features for Fallout 4‘s PS4 mods alongside fixes that address crashes, general performance, stability and more. For details on the patch, head over here. Have any of our readers downloaded the update for the Pro? Let us know what you think of it so far.

The PS4 Pro patched version of Fallout 4 gives players much more grass. The PlayStation 4 Pro support patch for Fallout 4 arrived this week, delivering 1440p resolution, increased draw distances and enhanced Godray effects. YouTube’s Candyland created a video demonstrating the small but significant enhancements players can expect from the patch. Advertisement While the enhanced resolution is an obvious benefit, things like draw distance and enhanced Godray effects are a bit more subtle. Take the screenshot above. On the left, the plain PlayStation 4 version, which looks just fine, until you see the game running with the Pro patch. The grass and bushes that would otherwise pop in as you travel are in full effect on the left, adding to the relatively realism and depth of the scene. It’s not just the grass, but texture details in general that benefit from draw distance. Check out the ragged edges of the roof in the picture above. Advertisement As for Godrays, these are shafts of light coming from the sun, peeking through clouds and other objects. The actual term for them is crepuscular rays, but Godrays sounds much cooler. The changes here are a bit more nuanced, but the Candyland folks…

Bethesda’s VP of Marketing and PR, Pete Hines, recently appeared on Kinda Funny Gamescast for a one-on-one with Greg Miller, during which he talked about Fallout 4‘s success. According to him, the game is Bethesda’s “most successful” title to date. “Fallout 4 has gotta be the most successful game we’ve ever launched in our company’s history,” said Hines. We’re told that it’s even more successful than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim “in terms of what we did.” “Successful” here could mean a number of things but as far as sales go, we don’t have updated figures for Fallout 4. Back in November 2015, the title shipped approximately 12 million units worldwide to meet day one demand at retail and digital channels across all platforms, amounting to more than $750 million in sales. Skyrim, which released in November 2011, has sold 30 million copies and received the “Special Edition” treatment this past October. What do our readers think of Hines’ comment?

The promised free Fallout 4 high-resolution texture pack released on PC yesterday, making the game look a bit better when you get close to things in exchange for a large chunk of hard drive space. Advertisement Between the quality of the original release and the mods players have created since, Fallout 4 already looks pretty spiffy, so there’s not much for a large batch of uncompressed textures to do. Redditor BrettonTT posted a gallery of comparison shots, and while there are noticeable differences when zoomed in close, it doesn’t seem like the kind of bump you’d need to scramble to clear hard drive space for. My favorite shot from the gallery. Here the edges of the rust are blurry and undefined. And her they are sharp enough to make your fingertips ache at the thought of touching it. Hit up BrettonTT’s imgur gallery for more shots, or hit up Steam to get that 55 GB download started. READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
