I don't think the Skyrim ship has sailed, it still has a massive community churning out great mods all the time, and the latest patch was great.

The werewolf armor definitely made my day. I'm actually going to make it to wear for myself and when I finish I will send you guys a picture of it when it's done :D

Cam and Seb, if you are watching, my wife and I would like to have you over for dinner!  I don't know where you live but we live in California.  It would be fantastic to have you over!  My wife's 5-meat mealloaf is AMAZING.  Just a fun thought!

why do people complain about these movies? firstly you dont have to watch them if your not interested, but im sure like a lot of people i am interested, so really what does it matter to you? the point of a gaming site is to appeal to everyone so theres always something to look at.

I only own this game on PS3 so find it really cool to see what can be done, makes me uber jelous!

keep up the good work gamespot :)

I absolutely loved Skyrim, but am I the only one here at GameSpot that is sick and tired of all of these Skyrim articles all the time?

@goggles123456 Best comment ever! What a lovely offer,  we both live in London but we'll be in California for E3! maybe we can work something out :)

@_Judas_  I second that idea....  If Sony and Microsoft created a sort of store like Apple and just approved everything first and that was the only way people could get mods that would be epic...  it could also slash a nice wound in the PC Gaming market.  


Not to mention... make an actual good Keyboard and Mouse Accessory and they could literally kill PC's if they wanted to.


Not that I want PC's to die, but if I were in Microsoft or Sony... I'd be looking towards making a machine that could do it all... I mean... why not?

@_Judas_ It's unlikely, that would mean Sony would have to open up their hardware to the general public... which they won't do

@AgentMothman95 The Ship has effectively sailed for you and most people who played it exclusively on consoles that is.That's what you get for only playing on a closed platform.You won't get any more contents.There are like a sht load of various users created contents released per week and its totally free.Hell some of the stuff you had to pay for on consoles where already available for free.No wonder most of you guys are bitter about this,by now you already did everything Bethesda allowed you to do in game.Skyrim on PC is what re-playability and having fun is about.

@AgentMothman95 Good god no, you're not the only one. The Skyrim ship has sailed. Definitely time for Gamespot to do something different.

As expected from a jealous console gamer.

@AgentMothman95 GameSpot has a feature to prevent that, it's called "keep scrolling and ignore the articles you don't want to see".

@MurderMode @_Judas_ yes. I played and completed "Skyrim" one full time playing on my PS3. The next day I traded it in... If the console gamers got access to some of the community mods, I would still own and play Skyrim today-- the vast selection of mods available for the PC-version offers such crazy variety to both gameplay and aestetics. Really a shame, but, yes, I see all the problems with allowing mods for a console game... still, a man can dream.

@Vari3ty  @EL_Bomberdor  @espiranza88 

why, are you a console gamer?

pc gamers can still enjoy new custom content, if you don't mind?

selfish people.. leave this place.

Jealous? playing a boring game for months past it's sell by date for some pointless mods?

Something about this reminds me of Telltales the Walking Dead...

or was it The book of Eli

I can't quite put my finger on it.

@ReadySebbyGo @goggles123456 @cameronrobinson Only the best animals are prepared for this meal!  Beef, pork, veal, turkey sausage, and bacon ON TOP.  Not to mention the au gratin potatoes, biscuits, and homemade chocolate chip cookies! I don't know when E3 happens, but when it does I'll contact you and see if we can all...meat!!  Haha :(

@goggles123456 @cameronrobinson Cam, I think you missed the more important thing here, FIVE MEATS!? What could they be? How well do they blend? Are they all land-faring animals? I HAVE TO KNOW!

You clearly don't know what mods are. Here you see only a small fraction of selected mods. Skyrim on PC sees NEW releases every day. Imagine receiving content, dlc's, expansion packs with countless quests by some modders who may be as skillful as Bethesda developers themselves. And the best part of all this...It's FREE.
