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]

Elder Scrolls Online feels fine on consoles, but it doesn't fix the core game

Jul 09 // Chris Carter
In my time testing the PS4 version I noticed a lot of dead areas, likely due to the lower install-base, compared to all of the MMO players out there who already had a PC version and didn't feel like buying the game all over again. Dungeons are still fun (and far more active with a controller), but open world exploration hasn't really been addressed. At times leveling can be a crawl, and most world events fall flat. The next bit of content coming to ESO is Cyrodiil and Orsinium (Imperial City and the city of Orcs respectively), which will launch later this year. Also, the Dark Brotherhood is being teased. which is likely enough to pull me back in to complete their questline. In the meantime, I'm going to be playing other MMOs instead.
