The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is an awkward game that feels a little bit like world full of Disney World animatronics. One piece of poison food highlighted the game’s silliness while also forcing players to get intimate with their targets.
Sometimes you’re in a relationship with someone. Sometimes that someone decides to give you a note written in cryptic dragon runes from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If that happens you should probably get to translating that note as soon as possible.
Skyrim released today on Playstation VR. The VR version manages to capture the game’s scale and beauty in astounding new ways, but you might need to equip a barf bag alongside your ancient nordic axe.
This week, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes to the Nintendo Switch. It will join previous releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4. Above are only three of the versions, but let’s see how all of them stack up.
Because Skyrim’s dragons and dead guys were never quite tough enough, the game is now adding something more dangerous: weather and hunger.
Every year at Dragon Con, there are some Christian protesters hanging around angry that everyone is loving nerd shit instead of Jesus. And almost every year, Heimskr from Skyrim is there to join them in their preaching.
Social NPCs is a mod for Skyrim that takes the clockwork non-playable characters from two of the game’s smaller locations and turns them into believable people with lives to lead completely independent of what you’re up to.
Using over 260 individual mods, from faces to outfits, UpIsNotJump has managed to recreate the entire original trailer to Game of Thrones using Skyrim.
The whole point of Skyrim’s special edition was to improve the game’s visuals, but just because Bethesda did it officially doesn’t mean folks aren’t out there trying to make things look even better.
Unsurprisingly, Skyrim: Special Edition quickly became one of the most popular games on Steam over the weekend. And given that she had already established herself as a channel for older gamers and Skyrim fans, it made sense that Shirley Curry, aka Grandma Shirley, would return to Skyrim.
The fancy re-release of Skyrim is out on PC today! It’s got new visuals. Still the same ol’ Skyrim under the hood, though, by the looks of it.
The remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has gone gold in advance of its October 28 release, and Bethesda has released the recommended PC specs for running the prettier version of the 2011 RPG.
Way back in 2013, I wrote about a mod called Enderal, a very ambitious attempt at creating an all-new game out of Skyrim’s bones, with a new map, new buildings, new characters, the works. Shockingly, considering the way most of these things usually go, it’s actually finished!
Time flies. Skyrim has been out for nearly five years, giving its mod scene time to grow and change and then change again. It’s a culture unto itself, one that’s weathered identity crises and that whole money fiasco. So, all these years later, where does it stand?
iriarsham posted these screenshots over the weekend, to remind us all that despite its advancing years and creaking engine, Skyrim—with help from fans—continues to look absolutely stunning.
Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim’s engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won’t be ready for a while. To help cope with that fact, I look at the team’s progress videos as mere instances of 3D Morrowind fan art. So let’s look at some fan art!
So fluffy, so excellent.
