Skyrim looks like a new game with 300 mods installed

Nowadays, I’m a Skyrim watcher and not a Skyrim doer. I used to be a doer, but that involved more than just installing the game. I'd start modding, and I wouldn't stop. Couldn't stop. I’d spend more time looking for lore appropriate coin distribution than shouting at dragons. Eventually, something would break, and I'd uninstall it, promising that I wouldn't fall into that hole again.…

A Skyrim fan is making lovely handmade illustrations of its alchemy ingredients

I once worked in an archive that included a heap of medieval herbals. In some form or another, they were a huge part of our culture and inherited knowledge for thousands of years, and while Skyrim does have a few compendium and guide books, there's nothing in them that really fits that bill.But one talented player has recently taken to drawing and painting their own…

These videogame cats are good cats

It’s International Cat Day! You know, one of those days reportedly invented by a charity, spread by the internet without question, and propagated by the scoundrel media because quite simply we are desperate to post pictures of cats, big cats, fluffy cats, kitten cats, any cat, any excuse for any cat, please, just let me have this day, please, I don't care if it's a…

Steam Charts: Summery Summary Edition

It's never a good sign when Skyrim's back in the Charts. It means mischief is afoot. And not the good kind. In this case, it's Bethesda's Quakecon sale, meaning a whole bunch of the dreariest of usual suspects return to droop our eyelids and weary our souls. And Nier and Flibble Glibble Pants are both on sale yet again. In fact, this week's top 10…

A Strange Return To Skyrim

The Skyrim special edition hasn't much moved me in terms of upgrades, but in fairness that's at least partly because, the last time I played it, I had so many graphical mods installed that the place looked better than Bethesda could reasonably achieve with an update primarily intended to achieve 1080p on current-gen consoles. That said, I do keep firing it up now that I've…

With Skyrim’s Special Edition managing to feel not that special, it’s put me to thinking about what it is I want from the next Elder Scrolls game.

Skyrim Special Edition Is An Underwhelming Upgrade On PC – But!

Though consolefolk are revelling in a spike from fuzzy 720p to crisp-textured 1080, on PC The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition [official site] is about as transformational as wiping the toilet seat (well, depending on who exactly used it before you did). Play it today and you'll be lucky to feel there's been any meaningful change. If anything, you might find that it's a…

We're almost half-way through the year, and it's not been a bad one. The finale of The Witcher 3. Dark Souls III, for those players who consider it an RPG. A couple of late-arrivals, like Dragon's Dogma. But as the nights again start to draw darker, what's up next? Here's some of the big quests still promised for 2016. As ever, don't be too surprised…
