- Here’s Your Most Extensive Look at Skywind Yet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llvcBLnzuVQ
In this video we finally get a look at Skywind, the mod that’s attempting to bring Morrowind into the Skyrim engine, at ground level. It gives us a much better idea what it’s like to play it than previous videos that mostly featured views of the landscape through a disembodied camera.
The 13 minute video is from a Twitch stream, so the quality isn’t that great, but you get a good look at some of the transplanted Morrowind locales like The Bitter Coast, with giant mushroom things all over. It looks nicely alien and although it doesn’t exactly capture the otherworldly ...
- More Amazingly Lifelike ‘Faces of Skyrim’ A second Faces of Skyrim gallery, even more impressive than the first, has been uploaded, featuring Skyrim characters that look so real you’ll try talking to them.
The gallery was chosen by Andrew Cull, with help from YourAverageGrunt, and Being-In-The-World, to put together what they felt were the best examples of Skyrim screenshot portraiture.
Of course these images are modded to heck and back, but it’s just proof of how innovative users are expanding Skyrim’s shelf-life.
You can check out all 18 images in high resolution at the full gallery here.
- Modding in the Mouth of Madness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSXwZT5VTVk
A bit of modding can be fun, spice up Skyrim a bit.
But you’ve got to be careful. The freedom of modding can also be addicting. It’s easy to go out of control. And there’s only one destination on that road.
Take Clumsy Saunter’s parody as a warning. Mod responsibly.
Or don’t. Now where is that Pinkie Pie mod? This video inspired me to cause some cute death, and Pinkie Pie is so much more lethal than Fluttershy.
- Explore ‘The Art of Skyrim’ in New Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOhHHlf_AWQ
If it’s one thing about the world of Skyrim that impressed and still manages to impress me, it’s how much beauty there is to be found. And not beauty that comes from pushing a bunch of polygons, which will always fade. Instead it’s beauty that comes from just how well-designed and authentic the game feels as a place.
In his new video Olivier Leclair explores the art that went into making Skyrim look so gorgeous, matching locales with the concept art that inspired and guided them. It’s interesting to see how much some of these early versions evolved and how different ...
- Skyrim Modders Remaking Beloved PS Platformer MediEvil https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG2mY9EQy04
MediEvil was one of the high points of the original PlayStation, where it seemed like innovative platformers were popping onto the shelves every time you went to the video. The 1998 game put you in armor of Sir Daniel Fortesque, a skeletal knight reanimated to fight an evil sorcerer named Zarok.
It’s well-remembered and much-beloved, so it’s not a huge surprise the first four levels are being remade in Skyrim, where every game will eventually be remade before the sad, slow heat death of our universe.
The project, MediEvil: Hero of Gallimore, is the work of modder KorinOo and is looking very nice so ...
- This Nightingale Statue is Fact, Not Fiction This very detailed Nightingale statue from Gaming Heads will let you show your love for things thieving and Daedric.
The statue is about 16 inches tall and comes in two types, a standard edition limited to 1,000 copies and an exclusive edition limited to 500 copies. The exclusive edition has a light-up base that gives a water current effect under the Nightingale’s feet.
It’s a little bit disappointing that they only offer the male Nightingale and not the female Nightingale, but it’s still quite an impressive piece. And it comes with an impressive price, $299 for the standard edition and $329 for ...
- Your TESO Armor is to Dye For: a Look at Armor Dyes
Here’s a video that shows off the new armor dyes added in the latest The Elder Scrolls Online update and the process of obtaining those dyes.
Dyes can be applied at various dying stations and are unlocked by achievements, so if you want to be the best dressed in Cyrodiil, get to work on those.
From the looks of the video dying is a a popular activity, at least until the novelty of the relatively frivolous feature wears off. The video creator, ChimneySwift11 can barely get to a dying station because of the rush
- RuneSky Mod Brings RuneScape to Skyrim
Are you one of those people who spent untold hours exploring the free browser-based MMORPG RuneScape? Then here’s a mod that will feel like coming home.
As seen in the video above RuneSky attempts to pay tribute to the free-form RuneScape experience, and to make it more immersive by bringing the 2D game into Skyrim’s 3D engine.
“This project is our way of paying homage to Runescape, as fans, for fans. This mod can in no way replace Runescape, or the last decade of wonderful gaming with Jagex LTD,” modder TripleSixes writes in the mod description.
It looks good so far, although it’s ...
- Plan Your Trip to The Elder Scrolls’ Nirn With This Interactive Map You know how sometimes you’ll find something you didn’t even know you needed in your life? That’s how I feel about this amazing map by Mlendia Horatiu.
The map tries to show all of Nirn, the world where the Elder Scrolls games take place, in Google Maps fashion. That includes areas that we haven’t visited. The map’s creator is even adding some images of the cities as sort of a street-view effect.
The Elder Scrolls fans could argue indefinitely about the map’s accuracy, and they already have been arguing, because some elements of Nirn aren’t quite so nailed down. But it’s still an ...
- Argonian Cosplay is Maybe a Little Too Good This Argonian cosplay is the work of a Russian cosplayer named Elena Nerium Olender. It’s almost a little too realistic. Like, I’m kind of scared for that dog.
Elena is a Russian makeup artist and costume designer. She’s a prolific cosplayer, and she doesn’t shy away from scary or shocking. Her deviantART page is filled with nightmare-inducing Silent Hill nurses, vampire ladies, and Sci-Fi inspired things I’m not sure I understand. On the other hand there are some nice pretty elves to soothe your brain.
Check out more pics of Elena as an Argonian in the gallery below. And check out her page ...
