Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week - Random Axe of Kindness

Kevin VanNord is not known for his kind or gentle heart. He's known for axing lesser beings. So, why not heal the world... with an axe? Kevin says yes.

Another great show on GS. Keep it up! 

Quick general request: Please move the microphones off more to the side so they're not obstructing half of your faces gents!!

That hairphysics mod looks like something that has a lot of potential if they work on it some more and add more hairstyles and such, for now it just seems like a neat proof of concept thing. As simple as it looks I'm sure it took a great deal of work to mod that into Skyrim.

Also, I was drinking my soda when that hashtag comment was read, didn't end well.

The Video is super smooth...does the gamespot player have an increased FPS limit?

Seb and Cam,

Hey love the show and thank you for featuring one of my mods a few weeks ago. The Asgardian Race.

I have a few mods on steam you might be interested in. Terminator, Star Wars, Superman and a few others.

This is the speeder bike from star wars with Skyrim based themes.

I am working on my Star Wars Races and Armors now.  

Thanks

The hair mod was hysterical! Reminded me of the Trojan Twister commercials! XD

I vote for the big head mod. If it wins it should be MOD #1! Big heads for the entire show!

Can someone tell me what mod emulates that high frame rate?  The video is obviously only 30 FPS, but everything looks "fast", kind of like DOOM 3 BFG movement.  My PC scores 60 FPS on Skyrim on Ultra, but it doesn't have this "unlocked" feel to it.  Anybody know what I mean?

Cam and Seb doing their All Things Considered voices fills me with all sorts of emotions, none of which are suitable for a family site like Gamespot.

These were the worst mods you guys have done in quite a while. Running out of good mods? If you are, DON'T CANCEL "TOP 5"! I wouldn't mind if you started looking at other games with good mods. Just a thought.

I wish I had a decent PC solely for this. Still a great game though

hair physics looks great in combat, but it should be for both male and female

I appreciate the humor, but the mods were kinda sucky :(

That hair was cool, I may download it when it has more options.

and thanks for putting my suggestion in the vid :D (the big heads, I found it quite hilarious!).

the nose ring mod is not on the vote page, instead its  fantasy soundtrack project. At least the other 2 mods are there im voting for the alcohol :D

Seb and Cameron, I have a question: How many drinks drinks did Kevin VanNord consume in next week's episode? We know Nord mead brewing will win and brew up another awesome episode.

Nord mead brewing all the way! Let the drunken games begin!!

Random bit of info, Lucien Lachance is actually in Skyrim as the Spectral Assassin.

Wes Johnson does the voice for Lucien in both Oblivion and Skyrim.

I was kind of hoping that the the Random Act of Kindness would be a Sheogorath-esq thing that made bizarre things happen like turn people into trees or fish or exploding chickens or floating weapons.

Skyrim is a great game I just got bored with it a year ago after I completed the main story. I definitely think the game has less replay value on consoles

Matt Mccracken is Doctor #12 apparently. Tell us, good doctor, what amazing games SHOULD we be playing, as per your astute prescription?

@Avemaster94 I partially agree.  I would LOVE to see a 'Top 5 Random Mods' series, where you go around the pc space looking for ANY cool mods for various games.  Skyrim, Fallout, Freespace 2 (Hard-Light website for starters), D&D, etc.  There are a ton of great mods out there for a lot of various games. 

I suppose it might be time consuming to have to dl & patch the various mods, all with different install instructions.  After all, Cam & Seb are already comfortable with the Skyrim/Fallout install method.  Nevertheless, I'd love to see some of the great mods that exist that I may not know about.  Sadly, I don't think some of these games will garner the same attention as something like Skyrim, but maybe some would.

@placksheep Well I swear I tune in to hear the English folks give us thir thoughts funny or not so grats. =) However, Plack is right but  also understand you can only do so much but really that nose ring thing was on a beautiful face could you do a mod thing on beautiful female models? That char looked fantastic.

@Falzonn yeah, we'll probably have to wait for a game of the same caliber as an Elder Scrolls game before switching up the show too much.

@Kinguard73 @placksheep Um actually no, you can't only do "so much", obviously you do not play Skyrim on PC,  people have created entire other continents to explore on Skyrim so there is really no excuse for these guys not to find some amazing mods, because the things you can do with Skyrim is INFINITE.

@cameronrobinson glad to hear it, Cam! I love all of your shows, and I'd hate to see any of them go! I actually just did a speech over the violence in video games, and I cited the Reality Check show that you covered it in. It was very helpful!

@Avemaster94 @Falzonn Hey folks, don't worry there is no plans currently to cancel top 5 Skyrim mods. Plus the doctor says if Seb and I stop playing Skyrim the withdrawal could literally kill us. We will be launching/transitioning another game mods show in the future however!
