Skywind’s Slough Trailer Shows Bitter Coast, Not Slough

Skywind's latest trailer is titled 'Slough', but it does not, as every British reader just hoped, mark the inclusion of Berkshire's much maligned city in the game. Instead it's the first look at the remake of Morrowind's Bitter Coast inside the Skyrim engine, and it's as pretty as every other chunk we've seen of the ambitious mod project so far.

Tomorrowind? – Skywind Public Test ‘Coming Soon’

BUT NOT SOON ENOUGH, etc. Skywind, the total rebuild of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in Skyrim's engine, continues to play sweet melodies on my heart strings. They're nostalgic tunes that lull me like the most charming of snake charmers. There's a new trailer out, and I can practically feel the Balmoran cliff racers pecking at my back, making me invent new deities just so…

I Am Overencumbered: Why Game Inventories Matter

Rob Sherman, author of interactive fiction project Black Crown, asked if he could write about videogame inventories. We were powerless against the result, which pairs a personal journey through the English countryside with a treatise on the power of possessions and the reasons videogames must do better in representing them. There was once, and still is, a boy and a man called me, and one…

Nostalgiablivion: Morrowind’s First Quests In Skywind

Oh Skywind, let me count the ways. For those not in the know, Skywind is a Skyrim mod that aims to transplant the entirety of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (aka, the best Elder Scrolls) into Skyrim's more modern engine while maintaining the former's gorgeously bizarre sense of style. Locations, NPCs, quests, the mudcrab merchant who essentially functioned as my best friend in middle school…

Tamriel, Man: Skywind Squeezes Morrowind Into Skyrim

If someone is keeping a Big List Of Inevitable Things somewhere, they can cross out 'modders remaking Morrowind in the Skyrim engine'. For it is no longer inevitable, but is in fact, er, evitable? No, that's not right. Though I guess you could avoid it, but that would make the modders of Skywind very sad indeed, because all their hard work in rebuilding Morrowind is…

The Slightly Less Elderly Scrolls: Morrowind Overhaul 3.0

Truly impressive mod projects make me want to defy physics. For example, try as I might, I cannot - even with the assistance of a truly formidable┬áthesaurus - recreate the pure magic of an authentic standing ovation in post form. And yet, that's what the legions of folks who've spent five years continuously tidying up each and every inch of Morrowind deserve. Meanwhile, Morrowind Overhaul…

Feature: From The RPS Archives

The Complete Fool In Morrowind

The RPS Hivemind is still recharging, the major nodes soldered directly into the towering soul-capacitors necessary to sustain their thin simulacrum of consciousness for another 12 months. Fortunately, an errant pustule has attained basic mobility, and opted to present you with artifacts from the Shotgun archives to help see you through until our resurrection. First up, a return to the Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, with…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

More-o-Wind

A mention of this Morrowind mod in another thread reminded me about Tamriel Rebuilt. It's a bold, some would say crazy (others would say impossible) project to extend the noble forerunner to Oblivion into something even bigger than its current mighty girth. Mad Bethesda-bitching is traditionally reserved for how they did unspeakable things to Fallout and how Oblivion was mindless prolefeed or similar such snobbery,…
