I have a Skyrim stalker

Skyrim has a lot of fun sandbox tidbits. Amongst those is the ability to invite certain adventurers along. They follow you, carry your stuff, attack your enemies, and are capable of doing a few other things depending on who they are.

Title: The Sacred Tears TRUE Price: $9.99 System(s): Windows Release Date: September 25, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Nyu Media (AlphaNuts) ESRB Rating: N/A, but I’d say it’s appropriate for an Everyone 10+ kind of audience.

I’m pretty sure I’m a terrible Skyrim parent

Skyrim is an amazing sandbox, letting you do a number of things that don’t impact gameplay, but are hilariously fun to do. Amongst those things is adopting children.

Humble Bundle Helps You Support Extra Life

Charity helps everyone. It obviously helps the people who receive it, since they’re in need of charity. It also helps the person who gives it, making them a slightly better person than they were before.

The Marry Me Skyrim mod lets me wed Saadia

Skyrim is an amazing sandbox, offering you the ability to do a number of things in-game that don’t have much effect on gameplay, but are fun to do anyway.

The idea was that I would turn off all fast traveling abilities and use the Skyrim Frostfall mod, which simulated realistic cold weather situations. If you ran around without wearing enough clothes, you’d get colder and colder until you eventually froze to more »
