  • If You Haven’t Tried Modded Skyrim, Check This Out
    Have you taken the plunge to mod Skyrim, or are you still enjoying it on console or vanilla on PC? This video by Replay Network showing someone try modding for the first time might motivate you to change your mind.
    As you can see in the video, modding Skyrim to be more realistic can add new challenges and annoyances, such a risk of frostbite. But if you choose your mods carefully that simply adds to the fun to be had because it increases the player’s immersion. The player’s journey, in this instance, became not just a brisk walk, but a desperate ...
  • Let’s Get Crazy With Sheogorath Lore Featuring His Original Voice Actors Sheogorath
    ShoddyCast’s latest Elder Scrolls lore video chronicles the Daedric Prince of Madness, Sheogorath, and it’s a gibbering good time.
    What makes it special is that they’ve managed to get Jeff Baker, who voiced Sheogorath and his chamberlain Haskill in Morrowind and Wes Johnson, who voiced Sheogorath in Oblivion and Skyrim, to narrate the video.
    The video retells, mostly through Haskill, the sad story of how Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of Order, was reduced to the irredeemably mad Sheogorath through the jealousy of the other Daedric lords. It also touches on how his home in the Shivering Isles came to be and the ...
  • Hoarders: Buried Alive, Skyrim Edition Huge Pile of JunkThis is what happens when your obsession to steal all the things gets way, way out of hand.
    According to this Reddit post a guy took every item in Solitude, leaving no piece of junk lying around. His plan was to take it all and stuff it in his house in Whiterun, but the game kept crashing so he ended up just leaving it in a big pile outside.
    So let’s look at the pile.

    It’s impressive, in its way. There are so many apples. And Solitude is surely a sadder place without its baskets and cheese.

  • Skyrim Player Demonstrates Ninja-Like Stealth Skyrim Stealth
    Svekmestaz’s enemies will never see him sneak by. He’s an absolute master of Skyrim stealth mechanics, exploiting every last shadow and hiding place to move about unseen, as if a ghost.
    They may feel some welts on their heads the next day, though.

  • It’s a Long Drop From the Top for One Unlucky Khajiit Skyrim Long Fall
    Sasha Striker makes the mistake of messing with a Greybeard near High Hrothgar, and it’s all downhill from there.
    Boy is it ever. Sasha’s Khajiit, legs frozen, rolls pitifully down the mountain for more than a minute. Over and over, silently enduring a high fantasy recreation of the end of the Springfield Gorge scene from the Simpsons.
    Finally, mercifully, it comes to an end. And there’s a dragon down there. Some days you’ve just gotta log out and come back when your luck is better.
  • Appreciate the Finer Things in Skyrim by Playing as Nazeem NazeemDo you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying, of course you don’t.
    Nazeem has earned his way to the top and I think we all agree he should be the true Dovakhin. Or at least ProtologolusX does, creating a preset that lets you play as Nazeem. Well, actually it’s just Nazeem’s very similar but maybe not completely exact Redguard twin, but you can kill Nazeem and pretend you slew an impostor.

    You can get the preset here.

  • New Skyrim Mod Finally Shuts Up Those Annoying Bards Bard Muting ModHaving bards in Skyrim taverns is a cool thing, don’t get me wrong. But after three years I think we could use a break. There’s only so many times you can listen to Ragnar the Red without going insane.
    To the rescue is the Bard Instrumentals Only – Sing Upon Request mod by fadingsignal. The simple mod does one thing, it stops the bards from singing unless you ask them to. And unlike other attempts at this feature, they don’t mutely mime the singing anyway.
    The mod only changes one line in the bard script. It does not gag them like the ...
  • 10 Lord of The Rings Mods to Whet Your Appetite for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Lord of the Rings Fellowship
    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is out now for various consoles and PC. The new game fills in some of the gap between The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings and features a ranger named Talion who gets killed and comes back to life seeking revenge. Yes, it sort of does sound like your creepy cousin’s Lord of the Rings fanfic, but it’s getting some great reviews.
    However, if you aren’t able to pick it up right away,  you can still get that Lord of the Rings feel, right there in Skyrim, thanks to the work of various modders.
    The video above from ...
  • Dwemer Dog Follower Mod Adds Mechanical Mutt to Skyrim Dwemer Dog Follower
    Sure, there are dogs in vanilla Skyrim. But they’re all flesh and bone, which will let you down eventually. The Dwemer Dog Follower mod adds a new type of dog made of unyielding metal and gears.

    Yes, he will feel cold and empty when you try to pet him. And yes, an unliving thing can never feel love. But your Dwemer dog K9-Centurion will follow you and protect you just as loyally as the other dogs of Skyrim.
    The mod, created by Verkister, puts the dog in Mzinchaleft, or you can obtain it through console commands.
    You can download it here and check ...

  • Unnecessary Censorship Makes Skyrim Sound Much, Much Dirtier Cicero
    One of the funniest bits on late night TV has, for years, been Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Unnecessary Censorship. It’s a brilliantly juvenile concept. Simply censor certain words in video clips with bleeps and our brains, accustomed to hearing the bleep blot out bad words, will fill in the blanks with the most outrageous obscenities.
    Unnecessary Censorship Central has given Skyrim this treatment, and the results are quite giggly in a schoolboy way. It even managed to make Cicero sound more perverse, if that’s possible. Heck, every Skyrim citizen does with just a few well-applied bleeps.
    And yeah, we’re aware that this isn’t ...
