Dio in Skyrim continues! In our ongoing attempts to break YouTube by uploading the dumbest things possible into it, thereby short-circuiting the Mother Brain and freeing us all from our virtual imprisonment, we've started the second chunk of our adventures in Skyrim as heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio. This is a bad video made by dumb people, but those dumb people had fun making it, so there's that. read feature
Spelunk-rim Here's the fourth part of the idiotic Skyrim Let's Play series Bill and I have been doing. The hook is this: we're playing Skyrim, but our character KIND OF looks like Ronnie James Dio. So, we're talking about heavy meta... read feature
Max would date a woman who gets that hype on Taco Bell
In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? (Yes. That's exactly what it is.) read feature
That raccoon is probably Dio's pet in the netherworld
Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio. read feature
We've been down too long in the midnight sea
Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos. read feature

Skyrim is finally worth it
Usually I just poke fun at Skyrim modders for rendering photo realistic horse vaginas, but I may finally play Skyrim just to play this mod aiming to recreate the first four levels of the tragically abandoned classic MediEvil.

This one is based on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and sees the Dragonborn has been weakened by a vampire's curse. The Dark Brotherhood captures him, and offer to cure hi if he rescues another vamprie from the Necromancers. read

Skyrim: Journey's End is a little fan movie starring the Dragonborn taking on a Necromancer and a couple of undead bandits. It's an impressive short, and it's made even more impressive due to the fact that the costumes and props were all made with just a $100 budget.

Man At Arms latest videogame inspired creation is the Orc Axe from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The coolest aspect of this creation is how the blacksmith made the weapon look as if an actual orc would make it given that they wouldn't have access to power tools and the like. Neat! read
