Luckily after a couple of hours everything is working again finally. I know it's only the first day but maybe anyone would like to share any game purchases through out the next couple weeks starting from today? And even provide some recommendations.
So has anything sparked your interested to take your wallet out so far?
Yeah I'll probably be done now. Skyrim ultimate was $36 so that was a pretty good chunk. But so worth it for the mods.
When you download the game and want to start modding check this out. http://www.skyrimgems.com/. It's a nice effort to separate the shit from the good when it comes to mods. Don't go overboard either, limit the amount of mods you install. Having to uninstall your mods can fuck your game saves up. Installing loads of mods in one and then not knowing which one causes the game to crash when loading the game is also a pain.
Skyrim is one of the easiest games to install mods for. Installing multiple mods and having a completely stable game is still a hard task.
The Nexus sites are good for Skyrim and New Vegas as well meng. Heed Hatmans advice for both though. Dont just load up on shit. Check what works with what and dont have multiple mods that do the same shit.
Mods ruined Skyrim for me. I've spent more time browsing mods than actually playing the game.
One I will recommend is this mod that gives you some gear and just drops you in a random place on the map instead of making you go through the tutorial. Especially useful if you like to make multiple characters or are like me and start over a lot because your characters haircut or eye color started to annoy you after 20 hours.
Anyway, I'll be keeping an eye on Steam, specifically for sales on Monaco, Trackmania 2, and Far Cry 3. 75-90% off or no sale!
I always use bare minimum of mods. Something for graphics if needed, something to make it more realistic (survival mods and such) and something to make it more fun. I dont let myself go crazy, or you do fall down into that hole of always browsing for more and more and doing more game breaking shit.
