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]

Mods and Mechs

I don’t think Warframes are really mechs, more biomechanical constructs. But there is a lot of modding that goes on in Warframe. As in customization of your characters, not Skyrim-levels of modding. It’s all in-game. Modding is quite simple. You get mods as loot. You find a lot of mods on the ground, but some are mission rewards and some are… Dug up from the ground in Excavation missions. They come in three flavors, bronze, silver and gold, but these are rarity, not how good they are. Vitality for example ups your health but is a bronze mod. Continuity increases… [Continue Reading]

Continuity – A Mod Journey

One of Warframe’s standard, almost required, mods is Continuity. Continuity increases the duration of your abilities – most of them anyway. It’s not required on everyone, but it’s a damn useful mod to have. There are alternate mods that also increase duration, but Continuity is the only mod that only increases duration, or not at the cost of anything else. It turns out, it’s also a really fucking hard mod to get. Annoyingly though, I’ve had a Continuity from the very beginning. When I was doing the tutorial missions, one of the very first mods I received was a damaged… [Continue Reading]

Mod it until it dies

“Mod it until it dies” has always been one of the unofficial taglines for the Elder Scrolls series, particularly Skyrim. Bethesda games in general have a lot of freedom not in the actual games themselves, but with what you can do with the games. From the look of your character, to badass armors to menus to entire gameplay overhauls, the Bethesda game modding community almost has a mod for everything. So when Valve and Bethesda tried to make money off community modders, under the pretense that modders could also make money, we kicked up a huge fuss. Bethesda games aren’t… [Continue Reading]

The Best Skyrim Mod Ever

… In my opinion at least… But really, with Skyrim, there’s mods for nearly everything. You can make combat super hard, you can wear awesome armours, you can turn into different animals, improve nearly any aspect of gameplay or, even can turn the game into some sort of weird sex simulator if you so desire, you can do nearly anything with it. But there are some mods you simply cannot live without. Rather than link every single mod I mention, I recommend going to Nexus Mods and choosing yourself. Modding is a personal quest, not something you should copy because… [Continue Reading]

6 Things I Miss From Payday: The Heist

This article is basically a sequel to Payday 2 and Things Lost in Translation, but it’s going to be a bit more nitpicky. Like, little things that aren’t big deals like the ones from the previous article, but they help complete the picture. I know I’m harping on Payday 2  a lot, but hell I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sequel that made so many tiny baffling changes that missed the mark. 1. The HUD Payday: The Heist has a great HUD that tells you everything you want to know without cluttering up your screen. Your health is instantly recognizable… [Continue Reading]

Catastrophe Averted?

It’s just typical that, when I take a week off from writing articles (thank you, aabicus!) and just post the backlog of stuff that I already have (again, thank you aabicus), that everything starts blowing up. Big time. Now I’m sitting here, writing this article and being massively late on everything that’s happened. On the plus side, I can sit here all smug and go over it all with you. On the 23rd of April, Valve announced a new way to support modders. This was the brand spanking new Paid Mods for the Skyrim Workshop. Basically, some mods now required… [Continue Reading]

One Night on Orange

It was around 7:30 P.M, Eastern Time. I was bored and in need of something to waste a perfectly good evening. That I immediately started TF2 should come as no surprise. That evening, I was in a feisty mood. Upon entering the title screen and selecting “servers”, I entered the “crits” parameter. I was promptly presented with several servers. After some deliberation, I selected cp_orange. Who doesn’t like oranges? ‘Twas my first time on an allcrits server, and it wasn’t pretty. Shortstop Scouts, Enforcer Spies, and Sniping Snipers were several of the more frustrating opponents. After stints as Spy, Scout,… [Continue Reading]
