Welcome to The Guild Home of Giskard and his mods We host some of the best Quest mods for TES and Fallout here. And remember, we also host guides for them if you get stuck.

featurediconI think I have found the Guilds game of the year for 2014. Divinity Original Sin is a hard core RPG right out of the old school books, bloody hard too, not terribly well balanced though. I am currently filming its features and getting a feel for it ready to make a new video about it.

The pros gave it a review score of 87 on metacritics, players gave it 91. Which is pretty good. It is a little buggy but does not crash and you should save often when playing it, preferably with more than 1 save so you can step back to older saves as needed and you will need too.  I got the impression if you do not successfully finish all quests, your going to find your self at too low a level to beat bad guys later on.

Or and did I forget to say it supports coop, my bad :)

Also do not make the mistake of buying the older Divinity titles believing they are anything like this. They are not. Divinity commander is just shit and Divinity 2 is an out and out action RPG. Divinity Original Sin is a pure hard core RPG in its own right. Its in a totally different league to the other Divinity games.

Divinity Original Sin is a kickstarter game that means its crowd funded and has been made the way fans wanted it to be made. As a result it does not suffer from the dumped down mainstrean Skyrim or Torchlight problem.

Last game that came anywhere close to Divinity Original Sin was NeverWinter Nights 1, but even that I would say has to step back and make room for Divinity Original Sin which in many ways pisses all over it. Not in all ways though. Story telling still puts Neverwinter Nights a head of Divinity Original Sin but thats the only area.

skyrimiconIf you are a user of Bash Boss or TES5Edit understand you are part of a system that is known to cause random problems with mods. Understand nobody can fix user stupidy so you might as well not bother asking for help because you are just wasting everybodies time when you do that and I value my time greatly and do not like it wasted by fools.

For those who want a perminant fix to their problems, try this.

When 2 mods conflict, remove 1 and keep the other.

Do not use tools to spot the conflicts, play the game and use your eyes in game..... they are far more reliable and will spot REAL issues instead of possible issues. Plus some conflicts are delibrate and if you fix them because some stupid tool told you to, you will break the mods that relied on those conflicts.

And I use and abuse conflicts to create new compatibility features all the time so you really dont want to be messing with my mods that way.

Today we look at competative gaming, the world of the pros. This video was made by Valve and shows how gaming has become a profession for some people and how the prize money has risen in to the millions. Interesting stuff. 

IndieGameIcon1There are a couple of new arrivals on steam today.

WARMACHINE: Tactics (RTSG Early Access)

This basically sounds like the old Warcraft RTSGs but is made by an indie developer called WhiteMoon Dreams. These types of games tend to have no Skirmish game and are entirely story driven..... normally.... There are a lot of fans of this type of game out there. I like them too but I do prefer Skirmish over single player campaigns.

Risen 3: Titan Lords (RPG)

Whilst not a big fan of the Gothic series the Risen Devs also made, I do like the Risen series, I like its crafting options, i like its story telling and I like its human. They are not as highly polished as Skyrim is but the I find them just as much fun. Some folk do not like them, they tend to be stuck on the Treble A games i find which is a mistake and limits your options. I favour gameplay and find the Risen series has the combination of gameplay and depth.

Alien: Isolation (survival horror)

This one is a survival horror based on the Alien films and looks quite good, but at £40 it has to be THE most expensive survival horror game on the market.
