Khajiit takes skooma, FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

I don’t know why I think this is funny. Well, actually, I do know why. I just don’t know why I think that any of you will think this is funny, but it’s my site and it’s Labor Day so I’m chilling out.

Beating Skyrim With Your Torch.

This ‘play the game with a torch’ video is entertaining because I’ve played enough Skyrim to know just how badly the guy’s warped the game to do it.

The short version is: quite a lot. This is a stripped-down speed run; dude skipped pretty much everything and did a few things that I’ve never even considered, just to shave off some time. And, of course, he went around beating enemies up with a torch. It’s hysterical to watch, if you’re into that sort of thing, but I imagine it was probably as tedious as hell to actually do.

‘Dragonborn.’

Yeaaaaaah kind of thinking about it. Have to rebuild my mod list, though*.

Dragonborn, Skyrim

*A clean install would have its points, honestly.

Microsoft to get rights to Cyberpunk 2077, and… Elder Scrolls 6?

Hell-o:

Microsoft has been heavily criticized for not securing the marketing rights to as many high-profile 3rd party titles as Sony has in recent years, but that may be changing if new rumors are to be believed. According to a report from Rectify Gaming (whose website is currently down but you can view a cached version of the report here), Microsoft will have the marketing rights to quite a few highly anticipated games at E3.

Has anyone tried “Beyond Skyrim: Bruma” yet?

I mean, Beyond Skyrim: Bruma looks very pretty. And I have a fondness for the obsessive labors of love that Bethesda modders* can bring to a new lands project.  But I also don’t want to spend two days getting the loadsave to work.  Anybody try this yet?

*Both Skyrim and Fallout.  Indeed, I came across this while checking up on the Fallout 4 Cascadia and Capitol Wasteland projects. I’m looking forward to both, particularly the former.

Why ISN’T there a Skyrim flick?

Have we had this conversation before?  — Anyway, below is a fan-made trailer for Skyrim*.  I understand that Chris Hemsworth is off being Thor right now, but: why isn’t somebody making this movie?

And yes, I know that video game movies generally suck.  However, there is a perfectly good story-line in Skyrim: “Dragonborn has the power of dragons, must kill Most Evil Dragon Of All to save world.”  You can get an entire series out of that.  Sure, it’d crash and burn — just like all the other video game movies that they keep insisting on making.  So I’m not sure why nobody in Hollywood wants to try with this franchise.

*The singer there is Malukah, and OH MY GOD SHE’S GOT A SKYRIM ALBUM IN PREORDER THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY EVER

God, this Bethesda Creation Club thing is gonna be a HUGE PitA.

I mean, OK, as a concept Bethesda’s Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim is great.

But it’s gonna be a pure headache to everybody who has already modded the game. Because I don’t think that all that vetted content is going to be compatible with all the modded content out there, and I certainly don’t think that all the best modded content is going to end up being vetted.  For a variety of reasons.  On the plus side — and it’s a very big plus side — some modders may end up getting paid for some of their stuff.

So I guess we’ll see.

I ask Settlers of Catan / Skyrim players: would you buy this?

Because it looks like something that people who play both Settlers of Catan and Skyrim would buy. And I figure that there’s got to be some overlap, there. Via Constant Reader JAB in comments:

Skyrim’s surprisingly immovable Goat Cheese.

Boredom in Skyrim is a fascinating thing.  Also, this video actually got my wife to laugh out loud.  She has, alas, had to suffer through more than one ‘funny’ videogame video. But watching those dang cheeses stay where they were just got to her…
