Our guild has been under attack! We suspect mages were responsible, given the nature of some of the charring on the walls. We also found a curious message burned into the floor...

Poll: Races of The Elder Scrolls


Afternoon quest lovers,

With all the excitement around The Elder Scrolls Online, we've put together a poll to find out the favourite race in the franchise. Are you partial to a straight Nord warrior, or do you prefer a bit of the blue stuff and go straight for a mana imbued High Elf? Or do you sack off the standard tropes entirely and be a unique Argonian lizardman or the feline Khajiit?

Make your choice in our Elder Scrolls Online poll and be in with the chance of winning a digital copy of the game. We'll choose 5 lucky winners when the poll closes on Thursday 5 February, 2014 16:00 UTC so get your votes in quickly!

Playfire Chat: Elder Scrolls Online


As if we don't already have enough trouble trying to leave Skyrim behind...

The Elder Scrolls Online is going to be huge. It packs the entire world of Tamriel into a single game map. Every single region, complete with each distinct country and each unique race. If you thought that trekking from one side of Skyrim to the other was an arduous and tricky journey to circumnavigate, you'll probably be in two minds about walking across the entirety of Tamriel. Pack your things, boys and girls.

In last week's Chat we talked about the long wait for The Elder Scrolls VI. While we still can't wait for whatever's coming next for your standard epic RPG, The Elder Scrolls Online scratches the same kind of itch right now. Of course, it also plays a very different trick to your standard single player epic. There are multiple regions, different quests and way, way more of them. You can also slaughter your mates. Or, if you'd prefer to do everything alone, you can - it's really up to you.

With so much history in the Elder Scrolls franchise, what are you most excited for about this brand new MMO? Are you treating it as a multiplayer game, or will you be the lone wolf that you were playing Skyrim? Will you be playing on PC or PS4? Let us know below.

Latest transfer scoop: Football Manager 2014 at 50% off


Make sure you sign FM2014 into your gaming library before the transfer window SLAMS shut!

Whether it was West Ham’s audacious double signing of Mascherano and Tevez in 2006, Real Madrid finally breaking Tottenham's resolve over Gareth Bale, or Man City’s failure to lure Kak√° to the Etihad Stadium back in 2009, the Premier League’s transfer window always provides major talking points for football fans around the globe.

2014’s January transfer window is certainly not going to disappoint. Forget Mata’s £37.1M transfer from Chelsea to Man Utd, the only major transfer you need to be aware of is the one you have full control over - signing FM2014 for 50% off the market value!

In terms of deals, this is one that every Premier League gaffer would be unwise to ignore (seeing as for most managers this could be the only chance they have of grabbing some silverware this season). It’s also a great chance for you to immerse yourself into the heady world of football management without pressure from the chairman.

You've got until the countdown below runs down to zero...or before Jim White and the Sky Sports team run out of cliches, for those in the UK (most likely the timer will run out long before the alternative happens):


To make this an even more attractive deal you'll also receive a free copy of Rome: Total War for your trouble - so two solid transfers for the price of one - that's a deal our Football Manager Alf would be proud of!

Also, whilst you’re here, why not share your views in the comments below on which you think have been the best and worst transfers that have taken place in recent years. I realise most of our US friends are focused on the Super Bowl right now but this little sport you know as soccer has a lot to offer too, so you're welcome to drop by the comments too :)

*Regional restrictions apply as usual, and all offers are while stocks last. We're not just diehard gamers here at GMG, some of us are also big football fans too (or kickball as it's known by James), so unleash your football bants in the comments please. All fans welcome (except you gooners) ;)

The Elder Scrolls: Online Pre-Purchase Starts


Fantastic news, travellers! The Elder Scrolls: Online is now available for pre-purchase on Green Man Gaming. Soon we can all embark on our collective adventure through the realm of Tamriel on one glorious Megaserver! You'll delve through caves, stride across the open fields and throw yourself into massive PVP battles!

What could make this landmark day better? Well if you're subscribed to our GMG Newsletter, and you can add The Elder Scrolls: Online to your basket, you'll be getting a unique GMG Reward later on today.

Not subscribed? Well if you want to get the very best offers make sure you do! All you need to do is tick the box in Settings on your GMG account: "Send me emails with priority news on all the great deals, vouchers and new releases!" You won't be able to get this offer but it means you'll be ready for future offers.

Competition Time!

Three fortunate adventurers who score high in Luck will each receive a totally free copy of The Elder Scrolls: Online - like you've stumbled upon a Dwemer motherlode. How do you enter? Just hit the two buttons below. When will we pick winners? By 1500 UTC January 30th. Go!

Poll: Favourite SEGA franchise


Afternoon gamers *waves*

Make sure to give Ben a wave, too - he's headed off to our stateside office in sunny Santa Monica, where he'll be residing for the next 6 or so weeks.

Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's Steam Machines poll. It seems there's a definite favourite among the early contenders, and while Alienware, iBuypower and Falcon Northwest's magi-cubes managed to snag 4th, 3rd and 2nd places respectively, it was the quite frankly odd looking CyberpowerPC that took the victory. With just under a third of the total votes, you can't argue with the majority!

Favourite SEGA franchise


As you may know, it's a week packed full of SEGA deals over at Green Man Gaming this week. With the recent announcement of Alien: Isolation, as well as some time replaying the wonderfully gory Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Binary Domain, we've put together a poll to find out what's your favourite SEGA franchise of all time?

There's a substantial number to choose from, and each iconic series has its own strengths and unique attributes to make it wholly essential depending on your genre preferences. Make sure to give your vote to ensure your favourite gets the top spot! We'll be announcing the winner next Monday 3rd February, 2014 16:00 UTC so keep an eye on the blog this time next week!

Playfire Vulcan BETA update 0.0.53.0


Hey guys,

Hope you had a great weekend. We've hit the ground running this week with a new update for Playfire Vulcan. 0.0.53.0 is available right now so please make sure you update your client to take advantage of the new fixes we've implemented for this build.

Without further ado, 0.0.53.0:
  • Playfire Vulcan now tracks PS4 game times correctly
  • Playfire Vulcan now remembers Xbox Live 2-step authentication
  • The Charts page is now accessible from the Playfire Vulcan UI bar
  • Fixed small error messages around login
Please be aware, although we've now fixed PS4 game times and how they track on Playfire Vulcan, PS3 and PS Vita game times remain unfixed. We're working on updating this in the future, but for now it's restricted to PS4 only.

Another huge thanks to everyone that's submitted feedback and bug information that helps us to update the Client. Please feel free to head over to the forums to leave your thoughts in the feedback threads if you have any thoughts or suggestions. Be aware - this applies to all aspects of Playfire! Got opinions on the site, the client or Playfire Rewards BETA? Let us know.

Joncol, Ben (radMonkey) and the Playfire Team
