Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers

Max would date a woman who gets that hype on Taco Bell
Sep 26
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.)

Dio in Skyrim - What did you do the day Dio died?

That raccoon is probably Dio's pet in the netherworld
Sep 24
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.

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio

We've been down too long in the midnight sea
Sep 23
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.

Watch Thomas the Tank Engine terrorize Skyrim

Storm's Adventure with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Official winner of nobody cares anymore
Jul 09
Here I am again, the sweaty, fat kid running back up to Destructoid, saying, "No, wait, I got another." So I held this voting event a while ago on YouTube called "Tell Storm What To Play 2012", and this is the true end result. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is not new, and nothing I say will change anything. But this is what YouTube wanted. Blame them. Also, that helmet gets very hot.
