toon skyrim

This mod of Bethesda’s last Elder Scrolls release by Modder UniqueUses is called “Toon Skyrim”, and we are itching to try it out. Unfortunately, it’s still a work in progress:

“I’m basically making my own potato texture mod, with an enb [a visual mod] and weather that goes with it to help hide that ugly lod [level of detail],” said UniqueUses on reddit. “I like the potato texture style, but I think a lot of fixing up needs to be done for it to be playable. So I’m going to attempt to make things like signs and faces readable but still fit the potato style. For example, certain puzzles need to be seen, so I’m going to edit those.”

Basically, he’s looking to use a mod that gives a new visual feel to the game but doesn’t add all the extra stuff that slows down your FPS. If you’ve ever had to lower your visual quality to keep your framerates from making it impossible to play a game, you know what a lifesaver this can be.

Plus, it looks gorgeous.

Check it out pictures and a demo of the mod in action after the break.

elder scrolls basement

We first wrote about comic artist Tyler Kirkham’s amazing Skyrim basement back in 2012, but it turns out that Tyler was far from finished—he’s since made all kinds of cool additions and updates. In fact, as the Elder Scrolls updates roll out, he plans to update right along with it.

What kind of additions? Oh, the usual, secret doors, a full kitchen, even a waterfall shower with ivy growing in it. He even made an alcove for his one year old son to play in.

I want one.

Check out the video after the break.

The Fallout 4 trailer dropped and, naturally, Funko was all over it with a new line of POP! figures. They also announced new figures for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and The Elder Scrolls Online.

As a bonus, the custom made Furiosa by Twitter user DaniSnow007 pictured after the break makes me want Mad Max:Fury Road POP!s like right now.

See the awesome after the break.

tank

Skyrim has tons of hilarious mods including one with Thomas the Tank Engine and Super Mario. They’re great on their own, but YouTuber Videogamedunkey takes things up a few notches by mashing them all together in one insane video.

Make sure to stick around until the final battle at the end. The word “mayhem” doesn’t even cover it.

See the video after the break (NSFW language)…

skyrim-bow-3d-printed

The things people can make with 3D printers never ceases to amaze me. This Nightingale Bow from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by Marco Antonio Pérez Morata is a perfect example.

Using the popular design software SolidWorks, Morata created the model concept in about eight hours and then printed 12 pieces with a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer.

He explains to 3D Print it took 58 hours to complete the printing process.

“I split the model up so that it would require very little post processing. It is split up like a jigsaw so that you can take it straight from the print bed and assemble the pieces. I split the bow in half as not to lose too much detail, but kept the two end pieces as one to give the model more rigidity. I did end up gluing the two halves together just to ensure a solid build.”

fallout skyrim

Fallout and Skyrim are two very different games that take place in entirely different worlds. Here’s what happens if you mash those two worlds together and set their characters against each other. It’s Fallout‘s Vault Boy versus Skyrim‘s Dovahkiin and it will make you wish you could actually play this battle in-game.

dalek - sailor moon

I’ve yet to be scared by Daleks in Doctor Who. They’re clunky, and unless there are large quantities of them closing in, I’m not impressed. I do appreciate their iconic design though, and Kelly, a.k.a. egyptianruin on DeviantArt, has mashed the Doctor’s enemy together with some cute characters – like Sailor Moon! Daleks look good with blonde hair. Who knew?

This and other 2.5 inch Dalek figures by Kelly were made from polymer clay and hand-painted. She created them for MAGFest a few years ago.

See a few other Dalek mash-ups after the break.

skyrim experience

Skyrim is a pretty complex game, but this video nicely and hilariously sums up the whole game in all of 25 seconds. Whatever you do, don’t pick that pretty flower.

game of thrones opening credits

What if Skyrim had a grand opening modeled after the memorable intro from Game of Thrones? Vimeo user Brady Wold has made it happen, and it couldn’t be a better fit. The game and fantasy television series go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

Wold started the project about two years ago and spent thousands of hours working and rendering the images. Wow. He used programs such as After Effects, Maya, Photoshop, and more to create the beautiful opening.

Watch it after the break.

skyrim wedding 2

There are wedding photos, and then there are wedding photos. This Skyrim-inspired picture falls into the latter category. Sam Balcomb of Rainfall (you know, the company who made the awesome Wonder Woman fan film late last year) and Kimi of Golden Lasso Cosplay celebrated their one year wedding annivesary by releasing this amazing shot of their bridal party. They both enjoy gaming so it’s a perfect fit.

The epic photo has been a year in the making and boy, was it worth the wait. As Kimi says, “Fus Ro happily ever after!”

Be sure to click the photo to enlarge and see all the glorious details.
