Just came in the mail.
ThinkGeek, of course. Twenty bucks, all in all. Just about worth it, given that I’ll be drinking my coffee from it for the next year or so.
Executive summary: Two workshop expansions (armor/weapon racks and I don’t care about the rest, and build your own Vault because why the heck not?), a let’s-dance-around-the-Mouse’s-lawyers DLC (‘Nuka World’), something about Fallout Shelter yadda yadda yadda, and… remastered Skyrim.
This would make a great opera number. A great Warhammer 40K opera number.
Skyrim didn’t so much let you get yourself into these kinds of elaborate head-stories as it encouraged them. I once replayed a certain sequence six times because I needed to get out of a room without killing somebody who I quite liked and didn’t want to kill. Because it mattered. Heck, it still does.
Well, the recipe that can be found here. I went with the ‘use bacon grease and add the cooked bacon’ option: the whole thing came out very nicely, although I probably made a mistake at putting the cooked bacon in before I let it simmer for forty-five minutes. My wife isn’t sure about that; she liked the general of-pork flavor of the dish. It is not a zesty stew as described, though: salt and pepper at the least, possibly more spices.
I really should revisit Skyrim at some point. See what the modders have been doing with it since the last time.
This had me in tears of laughter. Tears!
PS: I’m one of those guys who pretty much plays the entire game in stealth mode.
These Fight Against the Thalmor ones. Not entirely certain if I like them: they’re pretty unrelenting. Then again, I wanted a mod or two that would make me sweat a fight for a change, so there you go.
There are certainly more good mods out there for Skyrim that improve the game itself; these are just some of the ones that I favor. In no particular order:
Hope this helps!
Apparently people do want to see this, so here’s part 1 of my favorite Skyrim mods. Part 2 will be tomorrow, and mention actual gameplay mods: but it’s best to mention a few things that you’ll need to optimize the game itself. In some order:
That’s all that immediately come to mind: if I think of more tech ones I’ll add ’em.
…if I did a Top Ten Mods for Skyrim post? I was considering doing one, but the game has been out for over two years and while the modding community for it is still going strong I don’t know whether enough of my own readers would be interested.
