Skyrim’s Steam Workshop Now Supports Paid Mods

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 25, 2015 in Videogames


Yes, you read that right: you can now pay for mods. Steam’s Workshop has been a really impressive source of user-generated content, and being able to easily load and unload mods into games has been incredibly useful. Skyrim in particular has gotten tons of great content from the modding community. Now, Valve has added a way for modders to get paid for all their hard work: you can list paid mods on Skyrim’s Steam Workshop. After uploading a mod, you can choose a set price for it, allow a “pay-what-you-want” model, or leave it for free as before. The idea is to have modders get paid for making good content, and also encourage higher-quality mods in hopes of hitting it big time. Read more…

Source Mod Neotokyo Now On Steam

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 6, 2014 in Videogames


You may have heard of Neotokyo before — it’s a Half-Life 2 Source mod that has been around since 2009. It was a really unique multiplayer shooter that combined cyberpunk aesthetics with team-based play. You had to be a bit more careful and cerebral in your play, as going in guns blazing wouldn’t always work. Now, a whole new crowd can try the game, as it’s been added to Steam. Instead of installing various mod files, now you can just click the install button and jump right in! Granted, the game only has a small dedicated player base, but hopefully this will reignite interest in this compelling little mod. I highly recommend checking it out! Read more…

Project Unity

Do you own a bunch of retro videogame consoles but can’t decide which to hook up to your TV? Why not plug them all in? That’s what the modder Bacteria decided to do, putting 15 consoles with the ability to play 18 consoles worth of games inside of a single box. He hid away the memory cards and made a franken-controller that uses overlays and modded NES cartridges to add specific functionality. Read more…



Play Half-Life 2 in Full Virtual Reality With This Amazing Mod

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 10, 2013 in Fandom, Videogames


You’ve probably seen me post about the Oculus Rift before, but this mod takes it to a whole other level. Using an Xbox Top Shot Elite controller, a tracking device taped on top, and an Oculus Rift, Nathan Andrews has created an awesome-looking mod for Half-Life 2. Your view and gun controls are separated and controlled individually by each motion tracker, thus allowing you to feel closer to being in the game itself. It’s a really neat setup, and one that I hope can be replicated easily, especially with the Rift dev kits coming out so soon. Watch the video below! Read more…

Black Mesa Mod Finally Coming Out September 14th

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 3, 2012 in Videogames


Black Mesa Source has been around long enough to become a bit of a joke in the gaming community. The long-awaited fan-made remake of Half-Life has languished in development hell for years, leading many to give up hope or simply laugh. But now, at long last, will something actually appear? The modders’ site has updated with a countdown to the 14th this month, and they posted on their forums with full details: most of the game is coming out. The mod will contain everything up to the Lambda Core, which is roughly four fifths of the game. Pretty exciting!┬áThe rest will follow at a later date. I’m just surprised it really is finally coming out (unless…).
