Anybody know where the music theme at the beginning of the video is from?

SHUTUP SHAUN MCINNIS. You spent about half of that talking over the top of the voice acting, when I wanted to see if it was any good. You have actually stopped me from wanting to download any of these mods by banging on about them while they're trying to get their lines out. Shut your face, you imbecile.

Lydia deserves an award for best face-dancing.

Twitching dead Godzilla mod tails and corpse Lydia.  A fantastic ending to this edition of SkyRim Mods.  LOL.

Corpse Lydia needs to be a stand alone mod.

You thought it was till death do us part.  Lydia apparently doesn't see death as a barrier. :)

Every time my Skyrim is about to get a little bit boring these MODS make it feel alive again.

What's the song at the beginning of the video?

Awesome video! Will definitely check these mods out. I don't suppose anybody knows what the first song in the background is? Did it come from a movie or game? Sounds like an awesome theme.

Great idea to do a quest episode! I love mods that really feel like they belong with the Elder Scrolls lore.

I can't wait until I get a desktop and Skyrim can actually look this good.

 

This was a great episode, though. This was a nice change of pace from the usual mods showcased here. I hope you include more quest mods in future episodes.

This was a great episode.  That Lydia zombie was pretty rad.  Keep up the good work.

so are these mods just for pc or can they be on 360 as well?

Just my opinion, but the chickens are getting a bit old! The rest was good though, couple of those I plan to try out.

I've had that glitch happen multiple times, all caused by MASSIVE amounts of exploding chickens.

 @freakshowmonkey The dragon is the original Haynekhtnamet. Alduin is flying around Skyrim and raising dragons from the dead, and it's not inconceivable that he might be raising dragons elsewhere in Tamriel. As Haynekhtnamet was originally slain by "men of the north" it makes sense he may have visited Skyrim to take revenge.

Stop with this Skyrim shit please. Mediocre over-hyped game. And the mods are even more worthless: Just a bunch of skins that does nothing

The Fang of Haynekhtnamet is one of the better weapons in Morrowind.  So, if this mod has you killing the dragon to make a dagger out of ifs tooth, is this Haynekhtnamet Jr., or could the creator just not think of an original name?

Hahahaha @Shaun & John  If you guys look at 17:57 when you detonate the 2nd Godjira you see Lydia fly away and then when you pan over to the right at 18:07 I think I see Lydia re-entering the atmosphere and fall back down outside of Whiterun's walls lol.  Kudos guys.  Second only to the Khajit Chicken Massacre of May 19th :P

 @PDXmauler97 If you look towards the right hand side at 18:06, I think you can see her coming to land.

 @Mariner32 Mate,it would be epic,just play for hours with getting tired of it.I have been playing it for 3 month staright and still playing.

 If you've never been able to play an open world w-rpg like an Elder Scrolls game that has mods, you're in for quite a treat when you do. It's like a different game. Without mods, it's just a shell. Get used to them, then go to a friend's house that only has a non-modded game, be it console or PC, and you'll see what I'm saying.

 @flesh19no I stopped playing the game after a month or so, just didn't do it for me.

And yes, it was overhyped.

But why on earth would i want to insult the people who enjoy playing and modding it ? Good on them !

And for whatever criticism i may have for Skyrim, it's one of the few games left featuring full Mod support...and for that alone i can respect it.

Bethesda could've chosen to nickle-and-dime Skyrim players with tons of micro DLCs, instead they stuck with their tradition of a moddable TES game.

The game still has a huge following, so GS'  "top 5 skyrim mods of the week" certainly isn't out of place.

Get over it, i'm sure you've long since moved on to games you DO enjoy....as have i.

 @flesh19no It's called opinions. Not everyone shares yours. Judging from the amount of comments so far, plenty of people enjoy watching the show. There are plenty of other shows on Gamespot for you to watch.

 @freakshowmonkey or...it is a nice little homage to a past game; kinda like m'aiq the liar found in Skyrim, but originally from Cyrodiil in Oblivion.  Your level of nerdiness is hindering your ability to enjoy some great user mods...

@unrealtron The sword that the video is stilled at before you press play? Glass 1handed sword

 @jimmyrussle117 Confirmed? It's been that way before Skyrim and always will be. Even at that it was confirmed with Skyrim right from launch
