Skyrim Mods converge, create an odd journey

I mentioned in my last article that there was a mod called “Live Another Life”, which gave you an alternate start in your Skyrim game. There’s another Skyrim mod that adds onto that, called “Random Alternate Start”. It’s the exact same thing, only it lets you pick a starting equipment kit, and then places you more »

Goat Simulator iOS and Android wreaking havoc everywhere

Those concerned about the hooved, horned, and prehensile-tongued menace that is the goat should probably avoid iTunes and Google Play for a few weeks. The Goat Simulator iOS and Android ports are here. They’ve popped up inexplicably and without warning, and we all will have to face the prospect of people we know acting like more »

Everyone wins if Square Enix helps Steam become a JRPG destination

Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy XIII to Steam. We all have mixed feelings about this. The other day, Final Fantasy IV also hit Steam. We have less mixed feelings, with a touch of apathy because that freakin’ game is on like, everything. But that’s not all. Trails in the Sky debuted on Steam recently, more »

Alternate Skyrim start? My pleasure!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like if you could start Skyrim at a different point than “sentenced to death for unknown crimes”? Maybe you wanted to start in Rorikstead as Erik the Slayer’s childhood friend? Perhaps you wanted to start shipwrecked on an island somewhere? There’s a mod for that. It’s called more »

The TGS 2014 Silent Hills trailer doesn’t excite me like I wish it would

Now, I’m the first to admit that I’m not huge in the horror genre. The first time I played Silent Hill, I was a little too young to really appreciate it, and kept being annoyed that it wasn’t Resident Evil. I was more prepared to enjoy Silent Hill 2, and did so immensely. But we more »

Stop forcing FFXIII on us, Square Enix

We’ve made up our minds about Final Fantasy XIII. It’s been four years since FFXIII, two since FFXIII-2, and we saw Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII earlier this year. Admittedly, the installments did get better as the trilogy went on, but that doesn’t change one, important thing. People already know about the FFXIII trilogy. We’ve more »

Final Fantasy XV’s a open-world, diesel punk, road trip game? Yes!

I don’t do a lot of modern gaming. My most recent console is my PS2, and even my computer is a two year old laptop that only barely runs Skyrim with the high res pack. So I don’t pay much attention to the latest and greatest video game news. But, when someone showed me the more »

I over-modded Skyrim and it broke

There’s a problem with modding the ever loving crap out of Skyrim, and you don’t hear about it too often. The problem is that Skyrim is an interlocking tapestry of code. While there’s a lot of things that can be moved around and changed without causing problems, sometimes changing one thing can change another thing more »

Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo impressions: 5 reasons it is legit

I’ve spent the past few days tooling around with the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS demo, and it should surprise nobody to say I’m really enjoying it. I’ll even go as far as to admit I was on the fence about this one, but after playing it I’m totally sold. I thought at first, more »
