On Constantly Finding Skyrim Crashes

I finally found the reason why my Skyrim has been crashing for so long. You see, every time I’d play, I’d eventually have my game crash. The game would freeze then instantly crash to desktop, without a single warning or anything. Sure, it would seem to happen in random areas in Skyrim, always outdoors mind you, but pinpointing exactly where the crashes happen is an incredibly hard thing to do. It’s even harder to pinpoint what is causing the crashes. Most of the time, you’re left clueless. There are a handful of mods though, like the Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE)… [Continue Reading]

Mods for Almost Everything

It’s amazing how many mods there in Warframe. Mods for your weapons, mods for your Sentinels, mods for your cats, dogs and infested monsters, mods for your Warframes themselves, mods for your Archwings and mods for your Archwing weapons. With the Sacrifice, we got the ability to mod Exalted Weapons, the weapons created from Warframe abilities (named after Excaliur’s Exalted Blade ability). There’s only three things that you can’t shove a mod into: your Space Kid, your Space Kid’s arm cannon and your ship. Chances are, at some point, you’ll be able to shove mods into them too. It actually… [Continue Reading]

Playing Left 4 Dead 2 with Stupid Mods

In my siblings’ quest to find something we all want to play, I suggested Left 4 Dead 2. We’d been suggesting it for ages, but never got around to it because sister’s computer ‘wasn’t letting her’ or something like that. But on the weekend, she clicked L4D2 and it loaded no problem. Brother squealed with joy, and I silently lamented the fact that we were all going to die repeatedly. Of course, I’d also forgotten that I’d also installed a fuckton of dumb mods. Okay, not a fuckton. One of the mods I had was genuinely useful. It, like many… [Continue Reading]

Some Good Mods for Sentinels

I’ve mentioned a few times that Sentinels are better than Kubrows and Kavats. The reasons are obvious. Sentinels don’t run face first into danger, they are far easier to maintain, they are cheaper to make, you can give them different weapons and they don’t need to be fed. But Sentinels have the added bonus of also having more initial polarities than companions too. Which means you can squeeze more mods on your floating buddies. But what mods should you use? Before we start, when companions, it matters where your mods go. For mods that make your Sentinel actively do things… [Continue Reading]

Shocking Capacitance

Augments in Warframe are a weird thing. They’re supposed to allow you to customize your Warframe’s abilities so you can play more how you want, but most frames only have one or two augments in total. Even older characters like Frost and Volt only have one per ability, and I don’t think any frames have more than one for any of their abilities. Really though, a lot of augments are simply buffs, with very minor downsides. Normally, the only downside is that you could put a normal mod where you put an augment, but it really depends on the character.… [Continue Reading]

Custom Weapons in TF2

While transferring files onto my new computer, I stumbled across some very, very old pictures buried deep in my hard drive, and I found a TF2 weapon idea that I’d made back in 2012. In hindsight it was a terrible concept, but I’d made a model for it and even mailed it in a letter to Valve, so my noob self apparently got pretty invested. And  now I’m inspired to spend an article talking about the custom weapon community in Team Fortress 2, because I am far from alone in that department. TF2 has had a long and thriving modding community that used… [Continue Reading]

The Custom Weapons Pack in Left 4 Dead 2

Link to Custom Weapons Pack For the longest time, the closest we had to custom weapons was a bunch of really awesome weapon skins in the Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop. None of them really changed the gameplay beyond looking sexy, even if I swear my aim got better whenever I used this revolver skin for the Deagle. But finally, Rectus had the brilliant idea to take the game’s support for custom melee weapons and modify those weapons beyond anything I thought possible. People had added custom melees into campaigns before Rectus (the most famous probably being the Foam Finger… [Continue Reading]

Modding Skyrim

Here’s a question for everyone. How many of you have modded Skyrim? Going along with that, how many of you have actually beaten Skyrim (i.e. the main questline)? I have a feeling that the number of people who’ve done the latter is smaller than the former. Why would this be? Well simply, Skyrim belongs the mods! Going into more specifics, there are tons of mods out there to customise Skyrim to be how you want it. Whether that’s playing as a new species, changing the environment to a tropical paradise, or downloading those 18+ mods (and you people know who… [Continue Reading]

Stupid Sexy Skyrim

You’ve all seen them. The sexy Skyrim mods. The skimpy armour sets, the big-breasted character presets, the mods that make everyone nude and attractive, the hundreds upon thousands of sexy female succubus followers that also wear skimpy armour, are super overpowered and are also big-breasted and naked when they (or you) remove their clothes. Well, most people only see the skimpy armour and sexy followers on the Steam Workshop, but anyone who knows how to really mod knows that all the best mods are on the Skyrim section of Nexus Mods. Look deeper, and there’s even more sexy stuff. Mods… [Continue Reading]

KF2 – The Power of Modding

Much like a certain other zombie-based horde shooter, Killing Floor 2 has a thriving modding community that’s warmly endorsed by the developers. Its Workshop is full of modifications and skins and maps that exponentially increase the amount of available content, and today I wanted to talk about a few that really showcase just how much potential Killing Floor 2 has as a modder’s paradise. First we have the map “Insurrection“, which is currently the only map on the workshop that uses “Objective” mode, which adds goals for the players other than to just kill zombies. Objective mode was a thing… [Continue Reading]
