Skyrim tweak will allow for much better mods

Now, SteelSeries is teaming up with Tobii to bring gaze-tracking technology to the equation, and it's seriously futuristic. But it's not just for eSports - you can even use your eyes in Skyrim.

The myth of the gaming couple

On the latest Xbox podcast, I made fun of Xbox guy Graeme Selvan  for imagining that he'd find a woman who wanted to play Diablo with him. Most of my teasing was about the fact that she will have probably have moved on to a different game, and part of it was simply to troll him because it's just too easy.

You’re going to need quite a few Fus Roh Dollars for this Skyrim statue

How many of you are still playing The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. I know I am.
