Cam and Seb lead Kevin into battle with Thomas, the most fearsome train dragon of all. Fortunately he has chicken arrows, custom scrolls, and an equipment overhaul to help.

I vote for the armor!  I've been waiting for some proper dragonish armor for a long time and that looks spectacular.

sorry what was the laptop? I don't think you mentioned it

Haha yes Alienware wants you to drop crazy money on this laptop that has nowhere near the framerate capability as the desktop build they've used on previous episodes. 


Hilarious episode, however!

Great show as always, I pick the armor mod.

Hey, Seb and Cam, please do something in the next episode to crash the machine. :P

So you whored the laptop not once, not twice, not even three times, but FOUR times! You whored it out so many times it should have an STD screening! lol

Also, I vote for the armor. It looks cool! :D

While I appreciate that you've got to mention your sponsors, you do realise that Skyrim Mods is perhaps not the best show to do it on?

I should imagine most PC gamers/builders wouldn't touch overpriced Alienware with a bargepole. It's a bit like advertising a McBurger on a fitness video. Really, no one here wants one. Anyways back on topic, good show fellas, good to have Cam back!

Hm, wonder what the chat will be about today...

ok fine... I watched the video and realised that, in fact, all the trains are used in the mod. TBH James was a more menacing train, so probably better to include in a photo ad...

Haha, so much Alienware hate in the comments. Apparently everyone is too smart on Alienware to be swayed by any kind of sponsorship/marketing. Cam and Seb got a new laptop, at the very least.

Another great episode. Tomas the Tank Dragon could win the "WTF" mod award.

Was it really necessary to plug the alienware so many times? Sorry Cam / Seb, but it was quite annoying.

The plugging would have been more entertaining if the outro crashed the Alienware machine. ;)

Oh, good grief, I remember Thomas the Train. Recalling it, having such a friendly face on a steam train was rather unsettling. :P

Seems like people are miffed about the alienware plugging. But Cam and Seb made the promo as obvious as dog balls, so it's not as though they're trying to manipulate any of us into buying alienware products, or aiding alienware in any kind of agenda. 


Besides, if alienware want to support this show, which presumably we like enough to watch, and be so protective against any spectre of ''corporate corruption'', since we're capable of being critical consumers I kind of like the irony of alienware being so obviously a sponsor - given the plug only served to remind me why I'd never buy an ugly and overpriced product, and yet I still get what I want - Cam and Seb continuing to make this show. I mean, all alienware achieved was to make a joke of itself, and Cam and Seb got a laptop. win win, no?

I'm getting a TinyURL error for the strawpoll link, "Unable to find site's URL." Did somebody mess up?


I hope it wasn't the Alienware 14 gaming laptop...

Wow, the product plugging was very subtle, great job not making it completely obvious that Alienware wants Skyrim players money.

What's the name of the 3rd voting choice, the ENB? I can't find it.

I understand you guys need the sponsors, so Im going to look away this time, but better not show that ugly laptop again next time... of all the nice hardware out there, why alienware??? Its ugly and overpriced. And its kind of funny in 2014 , that alienware tries to promote a laptop in a show that uses a 3 year old game as show material.. isnt that  kind of stupid??

Have you guys tried The Last Altar? I haven't done the quests but it's not a bad spellmaker mod. :)

So, let me get this straight, the laptop was from Alienware?  You glossed right over that... :p

Fun show today!

i dare you guys to say "alienware" at least 30 times each on the next show

lol an Alienware laptop is small as in screen size but it is notttt small in thickness..an Aorus X7 this is not. Also they are totally overpriced. Once had one back when I was ignorant over such things.. never ever again!

While I fully realise you guys need the sponsorship etc.. its just disappointing that it has to be for such an average and indeed expensive product.

The first laptop that I purchased was an Alienware. I've since owned numerous gaming PC's, and the Alienware was by far the worst cost/benefit ratio. That ad was pretty uncomfortable to watch, to be honest.

What rig are you guys using for the show?..... :p  I don't object to plugging sponsors, after all that's what brings the cash for these shows, in fact the site in general. But c'mon that felt a little forced, there is such a thing as trying too hard. Still, good show and loved the Thomas mod, never realised how spooky that whistle was until now.

How about an alien mod to go with the new awesome super duper alienware laptop? :P

@je29836 I'm sure GS can rely on your generous financial gifts if they decide to give up advertising and keep the website afloat solely with user donations...

@Oz0n3_holepunch It is a highlights reel. This will have been live for about an hour or more, meaning they will have been spread out on the live stream. If they want to continue being sponsored by Alienware they need to advertise them, that is usually the condition of such a sponsorship. Besides they only mentioned it twice in the first half of the video.

@Gelugon_baat When they shot it in the eye all I was thinking was he had such dead cold eyes! lol

Well, in defense of Thomas' creators, those eyes were considered friendly during the era of that show. :P
