all the elder scrolls

I don’t know what it is about this series but it’s kept me hooked for nigh on 20 years now…  Well probably something about the sneaking, the thieving, the freedom, the world… 😉 Anyway, I have been playing a LOT of ESO.  I have a regular Thursday evening dungeon group with friends which is always…

Skyrim: using mods

I use Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) and the Nexus mod site.  The manager, as well as being able to enable/disable individual mods, allows you to control the load order of your enabled mods.  Most mods on Nexus also allow you to download with NMM which makes the whole process quick and easy.  There are guides…

Skyrim: for the uninitiated

I gather, from speaking to quite a few people, that Skyrim can be quite off-putting in both terms of size and lack of direction.  So I thought I’d write a few tips to see if it helps.  I know the game is 4 years old, but I still love playing it and it’s never too…

the year past and the year to come

A beast of a post – sorry 🙂  So anyways, it’s the usual suspects I’ve played this year…  Lotro, Minecraft, Skyrim with forays into EQ2 and Vanguard.  It will probably be a similar list in 2014 with hopefully the additions of Elder Scrolls Online and Dragon Age: Inquisition. I’ve recently picked up a new free…
