    Big Lots Sightings

    It's a hipster joke. You've probably never heard of them.

    Podcasts

    We don't (appear to) have a thread discussing podcasts, so I figured I'd start one... I'm really digging Welcome to Night Vale, which has been around for a while and so you may already know. For those who don't, it's an NPR-style news show based in a town where conspiracy theories are all...

    Big Lots Sightings

    Do you drink that whilst riding your unicycle and combing your mustache?

    Animal Planet - Giant Cobra Playest

    This dino set is pretty cool. I could see that vehicle being the basis of a neat Alley Viper transporter. Animal Planet Extreme Dino Excursion Playset - Toys R Us - Toys "R" Us

    REVIEW: The CORPS! Curse Exo-Battlesuit with Troll

    FULL REVIEW AND PICS: That Figures: REVIEW: The CORPS! Curse Exo-Battlesuit with Troll Lanard's The CORPS! figures are always a lot of fun. I like their retro-styling and great value for money, so it will, I'm sure, come as no surprise to learn that I'm a fan of this Exo-Battlesuit set...

    Animal Planet - Giant Cobra Playest

    That is very cool. I might grab it and use it for the new Imaginext Dinosaur sets, as they feature a bunch of Inca/Aztec-type warriors that would fit well with that aesthetic.

    FULL REVIEW AND PICS HERE: That Figures: REVIEW: The CORPS! Super Soldier Curse ''Masked Guy'' I've always appreciated Lanard's The CORPS! figures. I love that despite being cheap they don't feel it and that there's always an element of fun to them and their most recent releases have...

    REVIEW: The CORPS! 3-Figure Pack - Ogre, Buckshot & Snake Bite

    FULL REVIEW HERE: That Figures: REVIEW: The CORPS! Elite 3-Pack - Ogre, Buckshot and Snake Bite The CORPS! Elite 3-Pack is definitely a game of three halves (yes, I know...) Ogre is a solid, retro-style figure that CORPS! collectors will not only recognize but will welcome into their...

    Definitely. I actually ''role-play'' and refuse to use fast travel. Which makes the game fun, as the RLO makes night impossible to navigate without a torch (and even then it's still tricky), so I use it in conjunction with Camping Lite (so I have a mobile bed.) I've been playing with the...

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Official Thread

    Absolutely. The crazy thing is that many of the mods simply unlock or tweak the base settings anyway. There's a very mild depth-of-field effect in the game but you hardly see it. Dynavision just takes that and adds some clever scripting to activate it. Ditto with RLO - it's just a case of...

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Official Thread

    The PC version of Skyrim is incredible - and then there are the mods. I have Dynavision and the Realistic Lighting Overhaul running and I'd put it up against anything on this generation's NextGen consoles. Add to that the fact that there are mods to add hours upon hours of gameplay and/or...

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Official Thread

    Wet and Cold is (predominantly) visual, although I think there's some cross-compatibility with Frostfall. I don't use the latter, though, as I have a shaman who lives in an ''open'' player-made house so I'd freeze every time I went to sleep... :D

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Official Thread

    It never ceases to amaze me how talented some of the modders are out there. Somebody is working on (and has running) a mod that allows multi-player. There's also a great mod called Wet and Cold that causes NPCs to put on hoods in wet weather (and even go inside if it's too bad) and adds breath...

    If, like me, you found dragon-riding in Dragonborn to be a bit shit, then grab this: Fully Flying Dragons at Skyrim Nexus - mods and community Once again, modders actually add content Bethesda should have included. OK, so it's a little buggy when it comes to collision detection but seriously...
