Hey guy's, hope everything's going well! Here's a snippet of a few cool things and the latest news on Minecraft.
Anyone that has ever watched a member of the opposite sex play a video game knows that the other gender does it wrong.
Allied with the Imperial Legion in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Then do I have an achievement video for you! In order to get the 'Hero of Skyrim' achievement or trophy, you need to capture Solitude or Windhelm, two of the big cities in Skyrim. It all depends on how you're playing through the quest line.
Stuck trying to find Liar's Retreat in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Well, you're in luck. Check out this video, which details how to get to the mystical location. Your reward? Getting to Liar's Retreat, of course! Oh, and there may be some treasure within. I'll never tell!
As a big fan of the Dark Brotherhood in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, getting this achievement was an awesome moment. It's the final mission you'll complete for the Night Mother, as you slay the Emporer himself. Getting to that point takes some time, though. Let this great video show you the best way to do the deed.
Here's a nifty little exploit for you Xbox 360 people playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If you're tired of waiting ten seconds while you wait ten hours in-game, just bring up your Xbox guide by pushing the Xbox button on the controller. It's easy as that!
One of the best things about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the ammount of flexability there is in how to carry out a quest. And one of the best quest lines in the game is for the Dark Brotherhood. You know, the evil scumbags that are pretty much hire blades within the game. My favorite mission actually happens pretty early on in the quest line. The mission requires you to slay the emporer's niece, Vittoria Vicci, on her wedding day.
YouTuber pm00 really does make the best video guides for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In order to get the 'War Hero' achievement, you'll have to complete a few objectives. First and foremost, you'll have to join the Imperial Legion to activate that questline. Also, you'll have to complete the quest "Compelling Tribute".
This one requires a big choice on your point. In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, there's a civil war going on between the Imperials and the Stormcloaks (Skyrim natives). What it boils down to, is that you have to make a choice to join either the Imperials or the Stormcloaks, and help them advance their cause. Either way you go, you'll get the 'Taking Sides' achievement, which will get you 10G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
Steal too many sweet rolls in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Or did you *gasp!* kill a lowly beggar? No worry, because today we'll show you how to break out of jail!
So now you've completed everything that the Dark Brotherhood quest-line in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has to offer. But now what's left to do? Anything? Well sonny, there is something you could do! After you complete the quest-line, one of your goons will suggest to you that some upgrades are in order for the sanctuary. Doing so will add some really cool bonuses.
Now this is a spell! In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, there exists a spell that turns iron into silver, and silver into gold. That's the best thing! And it's pretty easy to get, too.
Skyrim really took the cake this year. With its awe-inspiring gameplay, much improved combat and leveling system, and a fresh new look, it's no wonder the game has already received a Game of the Year award. But for hardcore gamers, the fun may be over. You've played the game for thousands of hours, and have exhausted the entire game's main and auxiliary quests. You need more.
Gamers like myself who have switched back and forth between Skyrim on PC and Xbox lack the ability to share game saves. This really sucks. I love playing Skyrim on a console. It's a very comfortable, easy and relaxed gaming experience. You don't have to worry about your frame rate being optimized, or wrist pains from using a keyboard. However, gaming on the PC can allow you to use texture enhancing mods and get an overall smoother experience due to a lack in glitches and bugs that plague the ...
Users of the latest AMD 6xxx series graphics cards may have noticed that when they are playing Skyrim, their framerate isn't anywhere near what it is supposed to be with dual GPUs in Crossfire. AMD is working on releasing drivers with these issues fixed, but it has been too long since Skyrim has come out to just sit and wait.
It may not be the most epic of quests in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but it's one that's worth taking up. Getting married not only gets you 20G on Xbox 360 or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3, but you also get some cool in-game bonuses. Your wife (or husband, depending on gender or sexual orientation) will cook you a hot meal every day that restores your health fully, and she or he will even give you gifts sometimes!
Here's another Null Byte on hacking our Skyrim game saves. Some of the rarer items in Skyrim are really fun to play with. However, seeing as they are rare, you will probably not see all of the best weapons in the game. Null Byte doesn't take too kindly to games that don't give us the rarest items when we please. Let's beat this game into submission by hacking our game save files via hex editing.
Long story short, this is a mod by Xilver, who once upon a time did a spell mod called Midas Magic: Spells of Aurum, for TES Oblivion. Well, now he made one for TES Skyrim.
Are you a member of the Thieves Guild in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Then this is the achievement guide for you. After you complete the main Thieves Guild quest-line (which is freaking awesome, by the way), you'll be asked to take on special missions. To initiate those, talk to Melvin or Vex in the Thieves Guild headquarters in Rifiten. These small jobs are scattered across the four main cities of Skyrim: Whiterun, Markarth, Solitude, and Windhelm.
The Standing Stones in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are wonderful little additions to the game. Basically, they give your character modified attributes, or special abilities to give you the upper hand in the game. For example, if you activate The Mage Stone, you'll learn all of your magicka skills 20% faster. Long story short, they're awesome and you should find as many as possible.
There's a lot that you can do in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Sure, you can do the predictable thing and be a gay cat-man that shouts at dragons to death. But you can also take on even the most mundane of tasks. Want to make pies for twenty hours? There's an oven right over there, get baking. How about living an honest life as a blacksmith? Well, by golly, you can do it!
It's not uncommon to find a good mod these days, for any given game. But as I have mentioned before, Skyrim is not just a game. It's a drug... A horribly entertaining drug..
Without Much Delay: The Below Videos Are Awesome! 'Nuff Said.
It's commonly known that Bethesda games, at launch, are usually the most buggy games to ever leave the hands of any developer. Fallout: New Vegas used to delete people's save files, it was that bad. But then there are the fairly harmless ones that make a dude's head spin when he's talking to you, or discovering that the land of Skyrim is actually larger than you think it is.
This was one of the most difficult achievements for me to get in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Mostly because I was never able to do something horrible enough to warrant a 1000 gold bounty. However, pms00 has a great video tutorial showing the easiest way to get the 'Master Criminal' achievement, which requires you to hold a bounty of at least 1000 gold in all nine cities in Skyrim.
This has got to be one of the most clever Easter Eggs I've seen in a long time, especially considering current relations between Mojang (makers of Minecraft), and Bethesda (makers of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout). As seen in the video below, if you go to a certain part of The Throat of the World, the highest point in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you'll find a Notched Pickaxe. For those who don't know, Markus "Notch" Persson is the lead designer of Minecraft, and the head of Mojang.
Here is the final part in Null Byte's series on mastering the skills in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. We have already covered the slick and brutal methods to raise our Spellcasting and Combative skills. Skyrim's intelligent new leveling system has trumped the former methods of spamming repeated moves to raise levels quickly. Rather than casting a spell, or jumping up and down constantly, the new system requires that we use our skills in practice to get experience for them. This causes leveling...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim set off a bang in the video game world this month. It will likely be video game of the year a few times over. Skyrim is another part to a series set in the fantasy world of Tamriel, a world filled with mystical creatures, folklore, and even its own history. It's quite the beatuiful and immersive experience. If you have not picked up the game yet, please do (my fiancée even plays!). Also, make sure to buy it new, so the hard working coders at Bethesda get the money ...
Skyrim is a time consuming game. I know I'm not alone in saying I constantly find myself looking for more time in the day. There is never enough time to read the books I want to read, or learn what I want to learn, or play the games that I want to play.
Redditor Liktwo is a genius. It only took him a month after the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to realize that making the Dragonborn's helmet out of bacon was the best idea since...Jeeze, maybe of all time.
Here's your Tuesday afternoon "How the...". In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, if you head to Dawnstar, there exists an invisible chest filled with a lot of good stuff. Yeah, I had no idea about this either. And the coolest part about this? If you follow the video guide to the T, the chest will refill every 48 hours, sometimes with new stuff in it.
Once you've obtained a 90 skill ranking in any school of magic in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you're able to go questing for the master level spells. What are these? Why, some of the best spells in the game! Now, you won't get any achievements for these, but you will have some of the best spells ever.
So, there you are, walking along a mountain range in the beautiful game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, when all of a sudden a vampire attacks you. Oh no! Now you've caught Sanguinare Vampiris, otherwise known as the vampire disease. That's horrible for your goody-two-shoes character, since feasting on the blood of innocents isn't really your bag. That's where Achievement Hunters comes to your rescue! In this tutorial, Fragger and Jack show you how to initiate and complete the quest to become mo...
Skyrim is an enormous RPG recently released by Bethesda. After many long years of waiting (I had 1000's of hours clocked into its predecessor, Oblivion, way back in 8th grade) the game is finally out and it surpasses everyone's expectations—save for removing custom spell crafting... Why, Bethesda?
Further proving I need to start the College of Winterhold quest line already, here comes this achievement tutorial for 'The Eye of Magnus'. This is the last main quest for the College of Winterhold, and the coolest looking quest in the storyline. In true fantasy fashion, there's a really evil wizard looking to uproot all of reality, and you're tasked with taking him down for good. Here's a tip, though: shoot The Eye of Magnus with The Staff of Magnus so you're able to directly attack Ancano.
Here's the latest mash-up for the XBOX 360 edition. I believe this follows the Skyrim mash up if I'm not wrong. Look's cool.
I have owned quite the plethora of electronics in my life. A commonality between most of these devices' screens is frozen or dead pixels. This is probably the most annoying thing about buying new hardware—your LCD, or worse, LED display has one or more pixels that continues to stay lit. Most of the time, this will appear in the form of a brightly colored pixel that never changes, or a pixel that never displays the right color. Once you notice it's there, you just can't stop staring at it. It ...

This is the Windows OS counterpart to my tutorial on how to burn the new XDG3 formatted games on Xbox 360. Microsoft invented a new disc format system to trump piracy, it's called XDG3. XDG3's standard is to burn a whole extra gigabyte of data to the disc, to allow more content, but more importantly for stopping piracy. This extra gigabyte of data makes it impossible to burn or rip a game the traditional way. So how on earth can we burn our fully-legal back-ups that we should rightfully be ab...
Minecraft might still be in development, but that doesn't mean a creative guy like Notch doesn't have time for other projects. A few months ago he and his company Mojang announced their second game, a digital collectible trading card affair called Scrolls. A simple title (perhaps too generic if anything), but it's not the name of an extant game, and it's appropriate given the visual style and card-based gameplay of the game itself.
