Exploding chickens was a mildly amusing aside to a serious segment about skyrim mods. Now its just a plainly stupid recurring joke, which I feel I am not in on.

So what do you guys do after you complete all the missions besides more modding? I find that once I complete all the quest, I kind of lose interest for a while.

if your PC isn't powerful enough to run an ENB mod go with the ones listed below as an alternative (the game looks fantastic with them).

If I knew how to mod, I'd mod this game into a King of Fighters world and I'd call my mod, The Yata Mirror

This ENB Project got the same looks of Witcher 2. Nice.

Are their any decent performance increasing mods out there, my laptop kinda sucks, but with a few mods on FNV I can play on ultra and have loads of mods.

I personally don't like Project ENB, it's too cartoonish for my taste, original Skyrim look is great and fits the TES universe more

@GONtheSKYLORD I ussually do or play something else after finishing a game like Skyrim + (all DLC's). From time to time I start it back up and do some exploration and play with mods and stuff.

@tntgrunge5 For what it's worth, I sincerely think chickens are funny, but I agree with you.


It's like this video screams "LOL CHICKENS SO RANDOM LOLOLOLOL! BATMAN DINOSAURS LASER BEAMS UNEXPECTED REFERENCES!

@tntgrunge5 I once saw a chicken drinking from a puddle. He then stopped, turned around, took a shit in the puddle and then went back to drinking.

@nini200 A Hen is female. A Cockerel/Rooster is a male. Both are Chickens. "Lol"...

Hence a "hen night", which is a ladies' night.

ENB does so much for the visual experience.  I personally love Bleak, as it gives the game a look that reminds me of those wheat field sequences in Gladiator.  Just the one that works for me.  Lots of ENB presets to choose from.

@KorhalKk Bleh, Witcher 2's look sucks, now if it had the look of Superman 64, THEN we'd be talkin.

@GONtheSKYLORD I bought it years ago but haven't beaten it. I spend more time installing mods and trying to get them to work that I've barely played. Farthest I've gotten is to whiterun lol.

@anonymousicko no one's forcing you to watch it, are they princess?  it's a funny little show; unfortunately much of the gaming community is pretty lacking in the sense of humor department - they don't like to see such silliness interfering with their serious vidya game business.

@anonymousicko Um, it's top 5 Skyrim mods *of the week*.  You're welcome to be annoyed, but you shouldn't be surprised.

@anonymousicko It's not an article, it's a show, with episodes and seasons. A lot of people still love modding Skyrim and you should be able to see why from these awesome videos.

@Amandamarvell You might try hialgoboost. (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/15123/?)  It will make your game look very pixelated during combat (and while running, I believe) but should give you a serious fps boost but and won't make your game look bad all the time.  That's what I've been told, I don't use it.

@Sky_Stifler original looks really bland and bleak, I got bored of the same bland scenery over and over again fairly quickly but I still played it for 50-60 hours :P.

@AmandamarvellAlso, the ATTK launcher and Simple Borderless Window help some people.

@Daian @Sky_Stifler You could try another ENB that's more customizable so you can get it tweaked to your liking. ENB makes the game look gorgeous.

@thermalmotion@Daian  Yea, the thing is, I think some ENBs make a game look better but I am not a person who needs / wants over the top looks and gorgeous graphics, like I said original graphics are awesome to me and I don't need / want to change it, also, everyone got different tastes :P
