There are plenty of people who’ve been introduced to the Fallout series thanks to the recently released Fallout 4. That means there are also plenty of people who might like to go back and play the older games to see ho...

Early initial release, but give it time

Bethesda games are known for being modding playgrounds, and Fallout 4 is no exception. It’s only been out for about two weeks, but there’s already plenty of worthwhile mods floating around. Sevral mods for Skyrim,...

Turn your baby into a bomb in Fallout 4

As someone who just wants his kids back, I associate with the plight of Fallout 4's player character. As someone who doesn't want to work too hard at it, I admire the ingenuity of Fallout 4 modder Trainwiz and their Atom Bom...

Valve caught mad flak early this year trying to introduce paid mods (modders could charge for their work on the Steam Workshop) to an existing Skyrim communities whose modders often shared content freely. Suddenly someone els...

Deus Ex: Revision gives the classic a major overhaul

I wanted orange! It gave me lemon-lime!
Oct 14

Deus Ex came out 15 years ago. 15 long, unrelenting years ago. While it’s often considered to be one of the greatest games ever made, other people argue that some elements of the game felt outdated back when it came ou...

Splatoon invades Skyrim with new, goofy mod

You're a dragon now
Aug 27
// Chris Carter
Since Splatoon has been mixed with practically everything now, clever modder Higeyosi360 has created one for Skyrim. The Peryite Shooter weapon allows players to shoot ink, and is hilariously effective as it also does poison damage. If you want to download the mod, you can find it right here. I've definitely enjoyed the mods more than the core game at this point. Higeyosi360 [Twitter]

Wreck up not-LA with the Grand Theft Auto V Iron Man mod

Pretty good
Jul 31
// Steven Hansen
Chest burst, hand missiles, floating/flight, rocket punches, bullets dinking off the suit -- this isn't just a cool costume mod. Seems suitably over-powered, but also like a better Iron Man game than most of the licensed tie-ins I've ever seen. Also him getting hit by the car made me laugh out loud. [Viia Eurogamer]

When Doom was first released, at least one person I knew was confused by it. "Where the heck am I? I don't see anyone here at all!" they squawked. "You are the player." 16-year-old me retorted brassily "You have to go around...

System Shock 2 is one of my all-time favorite games, and this custom PC featuring SHODAN is amazing. Granted, it's not a spot-on SHODAN, but it's close enough to make me more than a little moist and extremely jealous. TTLG f...

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.  MediEvil 3 and Bushido Blade 3. C'mon, guys. Needs to happen.
