Link here. Short version: Skyrim is good. Making dumb and provably wrong observations about Skyrim for your academic paper (and, probably, your doctoral thesis) is bad. Play Skyrim; don’t make dumb observations.
That is all.
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.
This is the cutest thing that is also such a thing to do to two clearly long-suffering and patient dogs.
“WHAT SINS DID WE COMMIT TO EARN THIS FATE, HUMAN?”
My wife suggested that we get one for the new cat. I have to remember to cheerfully invite her to be the one to dress said cat, because I ain’t going to do it.
PS: I understand that dogs actually don’t mind terribly wearing this stuff, especially when it’s kind of cold out anyway. But I swear that those dogs look kind of resigned about the whole thing.
It may shock some of you to hear that I’m STILL playing Skyrim. It’s not my fault: the fans keep putting out good mods. The one I’m using now even addresses a major flaw in the game: even after you join the Bard’s College you can’t actually, you know, be a bard. This mod fixes that: your character can now play about five or so musical instruments, and – we’re getting towards the point now, I swear – play a bunch of fan-made Skyrim-themed songs.
Oh, yes, this is so totally a thing. But this isn’t a Skyrim-themed song: it’s a Mass Effect-themed song, which made me straighten up in my chair when my Dragonborn started singing it in an inn. (more…)
This Vikingdom flick looks really, really bad.
…not to mention uncomfortably like some of my past gameplay, if I had somehow managed to play a game that combined the feel of Skyrim (yay!) with the combat animations of Dragon Age 2 (…yay?). The martial arts Vikings were a nice touch: I personally like to ninja it out in my games whenever possible – and sometimes when it’s, strictly speaking, not.
…noted here and in the video below:
It’s very pretty, very comprehensive, I expect to enjoy playing it, and it has a bug in its early “No Harm, No Fowl” quest: the wolf just stops in the middle of the road, and you have to go find the quest end location yourself. I mention that specifically because of this comment from developer Alexander J. Velicky:
“I’m going to wait until the bugs have been patched.”
With all due respect, prospective downloader, you are crazy! Falskaar was rigorously tested nonstop by a very dedicated quality assurance team for the entire duration of its development. This means that there are very few bugs, if any, that you will encounter. (This does not include mod compatibility issues, for which I can only test so much) Every quest was tested and ensured to function, every script should go off without a hitch, and your experience should not be marred by broken or buggy content. Granted this engine isn’t exactly perfect, but this mod should provide a very polished experience, and expecting there to be bugs and waiting for them to be patched, in the case, is foolish! So get downloading, and get to adventuring!
