Welcome back, outlander
Feb 04

Skywind is a full-conversion mod that aims to recreate the much-loved Morrowind and all of its content in the newer, shinier Skyrim engine. It's been in development since what feels like the dawn of time, but things are shap...

There's already a fix for Tales of Symphonia's bad PC port


You can always count on Durante
Feb 02
// Jordan Devore
Tales of Symphonia released on Steam this week, and buyer beware -- you're in for a scare. Bandai Namco's PC version is based on the PS3 port of the PS2 port of the cherished 2003 GameCube title, and even by modest standards,...

There’s something really appealing about using things which sound just awful to make neat music. People have managed to get a tune out of disc drives, dot matrix printers, both together, and now the Steam Controller&rs...

Bless these early, monstrous Street Fighter V mods


Put your Birdie face on
Jan 25
// Steven Hansen
Street Fighter V is still a few weeks away. Capcom recently unveiled its plans for the story mode (free post launch DLC) and I had a lengthy interview with producer Yoshinori Ono where we talked about baseball and how Third Strike is the best Street Fighter. But this is all about fans being fans and doing weird mod shit, even with the PC beta. Laura x Birdie looks like an Attack on Titan.

This Grand Theft Auto V mod adds in Watch_Dogs' hacking


A better Watch_Dogs than Watch_Dogs
Jan 11
// Joe Parlock
I really liked Watch_Dogs. Sure the graphics weren’t what we were shown at first, Aiden Pearce was an unlikable dick, and it wasn’t the most optimised thing in the world, but I still had a lot of fun hacking an e...

The very first level of Mirror's Edge is being remade in Dying Light

I know the original Mirror’s Edge like the back of my hand. That’s doubly true for the very first level, as it was in the demo, and is also the best level in the full release. I’ve probably played that level...

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,...

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...

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]
