Into The Hollow: Dark Souls 2 First Person Mod

Some things were never meant to be seen up close and personal. Take the Mona Lisa - Da Vinci's elaborate smiley isn't kept behind bulletproof glass for its own safety, it's locked up to maintain a secure distance from onlookers. Get within a few inches and the familiar smile ceases to draw the eye - instead, you'll be unable to ignore the painter's self-insertion, an…

Phobos Throwback: Doom Reborn Total Conversion

Doom Reborn is a mega-mod, with the sole aim of proving that the shotgun sound effect in Doom is more exciting than the entirety of Doom 3*. To achieve this goal, a team of modders (currently consisting of the contrarily named duo, GameHacKeR and Brent) are reconstructing Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine. I think they might be on to something. During the…

Mod Of The Century: Distant Worlds Star Trek

Distant Worlds is the best space strategy game ever made, although I'll permit some leeway for the Master of Orion 2 lovers and have a real soft spot for Ascendancy. Hell, if you want to argue a case for Master of Orion 3, I'd love to read it but I'd need a heavy dose of sedatives on hand in case things became a little too…

Feature: Starbounding across the universe

Super Ships & Wasted Worlds: Modding Starbound

Starbound was always going to be a game that players would want to re-build in their own image. A procedurally generated sandbox means systems. Lots and lots of systems. It means the community can change whatever they want, and the players have responded at a phenomenal rate of moddery. I've done ridiculous things to my game that I'd never recommend you do. I've added a…

More-o-wind: Skywind Puts Morrowind in Skyrim

Skywind is a mod that brings Morrowind into the Skyrim engine. It's like someone at Bethesda took the Morrowind and Skyrim design documents and riffle shuffled them as a party trick, and then forgot to unshuffle them. Somehow--probably through a montage--those files ended up with modders. A less tired Craig would probably recount that montage, but that show-off wasn't up late playing Starbound and eating…

This Skyrim Mod Will Take You Into The Danger Zone

According to international law, I am not allowed to post the video I made playing of myself playing this Skyrim Mod, which changes the fighting music into Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins. Now, I'll admit there hundreds of reasons and at least three court orders that should prevent me from going anywhere near recording equipment, but I am sad that one of them is "A…

Feature: In The Arma Now

Let’s Dive Into The Arma 3 Workshop

We're still waiting for official Arma 3 content to arrive from Bohemia, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to play. The Arma 3 Steam Workshop is a time-sink of missions, mods, and misc add-ons that I can only describe by pulling a face. Just imagine a quizzical kitten. What's on there? What's worth playing? What's worth experiencing (which might mean it's broken but worth a…

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…

Shack Attack: Arma 3 Construction Mod

Hunting through impressive Arma 3 mods is a full-time job. Luckily for me, it's my full-time job, so I get to show everyone what amazing things the community has been making and keep myself in the manner to which I've become accustomed (impoverished, hungry, covered in sores). So in admiring this amazing in development Arma 3 Construction Mod, you're doing me a favour. Go on,…

Hands On With Skyrim’s Falskaar

Falskaar is a folly. It really shouldn't exist. It's a ploy by a 19 year-old modder to prove to Bethesda that he can make something that rivals their DLC, but with a fraction of their resources. That's a bold claim for an amateur to make. Can it be done? Skyrim's built for adventurers and sightseers, not just quest hunters. It's a place as much as…

Left 4 Xed? Check Out This Alien Swarm FPS Mod

3761 AD. Seattle. A line of tourists is snaking around a wrecked skyscraper. If we listen closely, we can hear their guide: "... this is the cupboard where they found the 'test heads', and this is where they arrested Robin "Mad Hatter" Walker, who admitted to 243402 counts of decapitation. That's the rebuilt Dota 2 annex. The war where the Dota 2 team attempted to…

Nord Storm: Skyrim Mod Falskaar Is Basically DLC

Living in Skyrim must be like having Charlie Kaufman as your god. You'd be pottering along, chopping wood, checking the sky for falling dragon poop, just doing your best as a person living in interesting times. You're not noticing the changes that are happening right under your nose: the flowers look prettier, you can't speak when you want to, and before you know what's going…

Have An A-Mod-Zing Weekend

Jim is basically the J. Jonah Jameson of RPS: I was handsomely making sweet news for you guys when he stormed into the forbidden RPS chatroom of mystery, slammed his fists on the desk with the rage that only an editor can muster, and demanded I find some mods. "It's the weekend!", he angrily typed. "If you don't find at least three mods by the…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. MISERY 2.0 Will Make Summer Grimmer

The sun is beating the UK into sweaty submission. Flowers are blooming, there is blue where there's usually grey, and lollypops are the staple food source. Summer has finally decided to show up and make the world brighter and sort of happier, so this weekend I closed the curtains and spent my off-time fiddling with Stalker. I decided I wanted to pretty up the original…

Modder’s Secession: Ultimate General: Gettysburg

I once modded Oblivion to stop some text from popping up on screen, which technically makes me a modder. I don't imagine I'll be building the next Skyrim anytime soon, but if you need me Bethesda, I am here. In similar news, one of the main chaps behind DarthMod, probably the Total War series' most famous mods, has decided to make a game. Not content…

Awooga! FTL Boarded Garry’s Mod

If gathering friends to play Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator is a bit cumbersome, and if you find FTL a bit lonely, then I've found the perfect game for you. Final Frontier is the result of a nasty transporter accident between the pair, where the Heisenberg compensators decoupled and they arrived on the SS GMOD screaming and inside out. The sick bay did its best, but…

VRy Good: Oculus Rift Support Added To Source SDK

While the Oculus Rift is a fine and interesting thing, I think adding it to the Source Engine might also be responsible for the death of Steam. Think about it: Valve are looking to make a follow-up to Episode 2 and at the same time they're looking to implement 3D goggles into the Source engine. Gabe decides to take charge, because he's hands-on, and replays…

Getting Heavy In Skyrim

I rarely role-play in games. I'd like to believe it's because I have such a well-defined personality that I simply can't accept not being myself, but the real reason is that I'm rubbish. I only ever have one well-defined notion of what I want to be: Garrett. Every opportunity to create a character in a game for me means loading up on stealth options, and…

Mod It All: The Witcher 2 Receiving ‘Combat Rebalance’

This may look like a blog post but it's actually a combination of confessional booth and news stand. Gather round and confess the mistakes of your past as I do the same, then pick up the evening papers on the way out. As the headline suggests, my sin relates to The Witcher 2. I've never finished it. Or started it for that matter. The reason…

In The Driving Seat: GRID 2 Cockpit Mods

PC people really are clever and dedicated folks. If they're not inventing new and grotesque ways to contort the G-Man's face and limbs, they're making mods for games that have only been out for a few hours. Codemasters didn't include cockpit views in their enjoyably silly racing-game-with-a-plot, GRID 2. The reason given was that only 5% of people who played the original ever used the…
