What to Look Forward To This Weekend

Skyrim Mods Show

We know that if you’re playing Skyrim on the PC then you’re probably a big fan of both our show and modding in general. And you’ve probably thought to yourself from time to time that it would be great if you could make your own awesome mod for the game. Well then you’re not gonna wanna miss this weeks episode.

Seb and Cam are taking a break from adventuring to explain how they go about modding for Skyrim in the first place. They’ll be sharing a list of everything you need to know about Steam Workshop, using Nexus Mod Manager, installing SKSE, and fixing pesky bugs. This special episode airs at the same time we always do, Saturday at 12:00pm PST so make sure you tune in.

Reality Check - Eve Online Epic Battle Science

Earlier this week there was a huge battle in Eve online, dealing tons of damage and costing gamers thousands of dollars.

This week Cam points the Reality Check Science Cannon directly at MMO RPG sensation Eve Online and the science behind epic space battles and investigates the science behind our own space faring future. You can watch this weeks episode on Sunday at 12:00pm PST.

House of Horrors

Zorine and Jess return to Nightmare House 2. For those of you who don’t know, Nightmare House 2 is a free Half-Life 2 mod and its well… Pretty terrifying. Traditionally speaking, it’s a first-person shooter survival horror game, but there’s a little more too it than that.

The story picks up with you lost and confused in a hospital known as “Never Lose Hope”. You have no understanding of how you came to be there, and you only have a vague memory of a haunting kid from the original Nightmare House. Tune in to watch Jess and Zorine scream live on GameSpot at 7:00pm PST.

I actually thought it was going to be based around Sonic Boom based around the idea on what video game character would you want to see getting a reboot or TV show on a Community Challenge blog
