So I got Skyrim on Xbox the day it came out. I played the shit out of it, and eventually I bored. I still really enjoyed the world, but I'd played so much that I really had seen it all, and the game just felt a little stale. Fast forward a few years, I get a mid-range laptop with a discrete GPU and see Skyrim on sale on Steam. Had to grab it. Got super excited about mods and went a little crazy with my choices. After not being able to play more than 15 minutes without a crash, I had to accept the fact that I didn't have anything close to a high end rig. After many struggles, I finally found a set-up that both looked great and ran fantastically well, so I thought I'd share it for those of you who'd like to mod but don't have a dope ass gaming PC.
We here at Digital Extremes are fortunate to have a vast community of talented artists that regularly show off their work, but few collaborative projects have grown over time the way Lost Sector has. Based on a fan concept of a Warframe de-make, Lost Sector is the result of Tenno coming together from all over the world to help bring a Warframe 8-bit action platformer to life.
Lost Sector may not be complete, but its enthusiasm to capture the spirit of Warframe has kept the project running for over a year now. While there is still work to be done, the Lost Sector team is just as determined to create as authentic an 8-bit Tenno adventure as when they first started.
I'm going to preface this news post by telling you to read the entire article, to the bottom before you run off and start quoting things left right and centre out of context. With that said...
Yesterday, Steam's new Paid Workshop had its first casualty as Chesko pulled his mods off the site. He made a post on Reddit explaining his decision, and took a pop at the Nexus at the bottom by saying: ...
Cameron Schwach's insight:
If you actively mod your games, or if you are a mod developer, this is something you need to read. This is important.
Skyrim is weird place filled with ice wraiths, giant spiders, werewolves, and skeletal dragons. It could always stand to get a little weirder, though, so why not start filling the world with walking, talking, humanoid creations made of wood? You can assemble these wooden people yourself with the Craftable Followers mod.
Having enjoyed the Moonlight Greatsword in Demon's Souls before having managed to acquire it myself in Dark Souls, I was incredibly disappointed with how cracked and unrefined it looked. Thankfully someone already made a clean and appealing alternative, but that didn't satisfy me. I had an idea. One plain color was kind of boring; something as special as the Moonlight Greatsword shouldn't be so boring. Seeing only solid color textures on the Nexus, I thought, why not? And so, the Cosmos Moonlight Greatsword pack was born. But not without help; I didn't know where to begin with finding the vanilla textures, so I had to settle on someone else's. Therefore, I would like to thank Nephutis for providing me with textures to work with.
There's a couple different skins in this pack, including Cosmos, Cosmic Moonlight, Midnight Light, Midnight Bright, Electric Twilight, and Palelight. Be sure to check the screenshots to see what each one is like.

And of course, being an NES I can still play NES games on it. It also plays SNES, Sega Genesis, and other retro games as well. And yes, I can use the controller ports on the front to play games with official original NES, or SNES controllers. I have a ton of fond memories playing games on my NES when I was young, and now it has a new life as the primary entertainment device plugged into my television once again. Sorry for all those years you were collecting dust in the closet, old friend, I still cherish our time together.
An attempt to create a 3D pokemon world with full interactions between wild pokemon, the player, and fight mechanics. Interesting project, but appears to need help. Link will take you to the game's forums.
You may have seen an influx of Pokemon fangame posts creeping up to the front page. Sorry not sorry. Here is ONE MORE. Then I can find titles for other types of game that you want to see! :D This is Pokemon Generation Zero. (obviously). For those who love a good story, this arc is 35 years before the first game, and the map and storyline ties tightly to what we know and love in the first franchise games. Popular landmarks will either be in construction/not there yet, certain Pokemon roam more frequently, other juicy origin things. It is in development.
Steam Workshop: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Immersive yourself in the experience of being locked out of something you've enjoyed for years and having a community you've grow to love being torn appart over night! ------------------------------
