My Skyrim Mods

Comments: No Comments
Published on: December 4, 2012

Damn near every time I stream Skyrim I get asked what mods I’m running, and since I run so many, I’ve said that I would write a blog post listing all the mods that I’m running. This is that post. Heck, I’ll even keep it up to date as necessary.   Before I even begin,[…]

Day of the Dovahkiin (Part -1)

Published on: February 8, 2012

While I’m still unsure of the quality of my Day of the Dovahkiin blog series, I’ve decided to continue with it, so don’t be thrown off by the title here. What it really means is that I’m starting over right from the beginning.   With the release (finally!) of the Creation Kit, I’ve decided to[…]

Crazy Little Thing Called Nord

  Last night, inspired by the Elder Strolls articles on PC Gamer, I started playing Skyrim over from the beginning again. This marks the fourth and hopefully final reroll of my character in that game, as I’d like to finish the main story before the release of the Creation Kit. This is an aspiration I am unlikely[…]

Today I premiered my new show “Slash Played” which is kind of a “first impressions” look at games that are either new, or just new to me. his first episode takes a look at the game “Nitronic Rush”. Enjoy. (Due to formatting issues, you’ll have to click-through to get to the link) Slash Played: Episode[…]

Defending Dungeons

So I’ve been playing Dungeon Defenders a lot lately. And I mean, a lot. So I figured I’d do a mini-review slash intro (I say “mini” but it’s going to be rather longer-ish) of it. I’ve now played it both on PC and 360 (it’s running in the background right now, actually), but the majority[…]

Achievement Unlocked: OCD

Published on: October 28, 2011

Aside from in WoW, I never really cared about achievements. Even within WoW, my interest only went so far; I was after titles and mounts, and there were achievements that provided those. In other games, I really didn’t care. It was neat when they popped up, but I didn’t seek them out. So why is[…]

Well, it is now four days after my participation in this year’s Extra Life gaming marathon charity event, and while I still haven’t found a way to describe it that rolls off the tongue, the event itself was an overwhelming success. I, personally, was able to raise $200 for a local hospital, and the charity[…]

Play Games. Heal Kids.

Lately I’ve been looking at two charities that have received some recognition amongst gamers; Child’s Play and Extra Life. Child’s Play is definitely the more famous of the two as it’s the charity run and supported by the Penny Arcade guys, as well as the charity that all donations from the Desert Bus For Hope[…]

It’s an unfortunate thing that playing video games still has a social stigma despite how many people do so. My father even has video game consoles, though he doesn’t play them very often. Embarrassingly enough, he actually has more than I do. Or did prior to my move, though even then I only had a[…]
