    Good point.
    {Playstation exclusive games}+{Playstation 2 exclusive games}+{Playstation 3 exclusive games}+{Playstation 4 exclusive games}+{Next cycle}

    {Xbox exclusive Games}+{XBox 360 exclusive games}+{XBox One exclusive Games}+{Next cycle}

    {1988-2016 PC Games}+{Potential upgrades}

    PC players are not limited to hardware eras, only a potential hardware upgrade and all titles are available with no compatibility issues.

    I could be wrong, but I think that SE will introduce paid mods. I have some suspicions and educated guesses as to why I think that, but no fact. If that is the case, I would recommend everyone getting their popcorn.

    Everyone should get popcorn anyways, there's going to be something wrong with the release. If they can manage to have their games bug ridden on release imagine how many new bugs might be introduced if they happen to put it on the tacked together Fallout 4 version of the Gamebyro engine.

    Which I have no idea about because they're mods.

    Serena has a fascinating dark backstory, good voice acting, a lengthy quest to get to know your Dragonborn on, and looks like Kate Beckinsale.

    Why not a romance with her?

    She causes game bloat with her spells, causes un-curable desises, pushes the player character during dialogue, continuously says"MMmm yeah, what do you need?" over and over again, gets stuck in barrel roll permanently, gets stuck in sneak permanently, gets stuck in crawling on the floor wounded animation permanently.

    Laura Bailey is a great voice actor, but she is very limited to only the Dawnguard quest-line, where there are other romanceable/marriageable companions that are full game aware. comment on every area you are in, quests you've done, build with your character. Personal quests, and they don't break. These modded companions are all hearthfire aware, adoption aware. Serana is good in a vanilla game, but compared to modded companions, she's lacking in everything from story to AI.

    The shitstorm is gonna be spectacular if Bethesda does what Bethesdoes.

    What modded companions would you recommend for Skyrim in that case? Most companion mods I see in videos tend to be gimmicky, badly voiced or are simply waifu bait with a few exceptions (that I can't recall at the moment).

    I would love nothing more then to recommend a few, but, I will leave that for you, I don't mind educating to let people know there are more options then Shitrana, but I won't give you my secrets. Get better at searching and don't be a hack and actually try them out. Unless you want to judge books by their cover.

    Fair enough. If I ever try out Skyrim one of these days, I'll probably be sure to read through each of those companion mods. As a side note, Morrowind had a few decent companion mods that reacted to quests in game, I 'wonder' why Skyrim, after all these years, does not...

    Julan was awesome, still is. His quest pisses me off, but only during one part, that literally makes no sense. Still a must have.

    Julan was a good companion mod (and I agree, still is) with his own companion questline that felt like a natural addition to the main quest. I liked it for how well it tied together into the main story and gave the character an arc (though there was one part that pissed me off as well).

    So basically Skyrim remastered is pretty much the original Skyrim with a ENB that makes it look glossy?

    She also has daddy issues too.

    They're probably going to add an extra feature into the game for modders called mod theft simulator where console people steal your mods and upload them to Bethesda.AIDS and ask for donations for being wankers.

    Sadly, I feel it is more likely that Bethesda will try paid mods again, meaning that they will be making money off of our mods and the only way to tell if they stole my mods is to pay them money for it, because it will be hidden behind a paywall. That's what happened during the steam fiasco anyway, so I can only imagine it being worse with Bethesda.net There are literally less and less benefits to being a modder now-a-days. :(

    They use the fact that it is a Remastered Edition to get around the whole "You are now going have to pay for mods that has been free before.". If bug fixing mods are free, then bug fix modders are unfairly treated. If bug fixing mods aren't free, then you are basically rewarding Bethesda for making a buggy game.

    Agreed, but the same can be said about many mods, bodies, animations, quests, followers etc. All things that make the game better. The bugs left over in Skyrim are 'minor' not game breaking, Bethesda should have fixed them, but all modders are responsible for making the not so good game 'good'

    Also Daddy iss...oops, missed.

    Goth Girls are this gamer's kryptonite!

    *wife hits him over the head*

    On a more explanatory note, what I love in Skyrim is what I want from Fallout but which Fallout 4 denied me. That it is a place that actually transports you to someplace else and you feel the desire to look out every little nook and cranny to become one with it. The roleplay may not be the best and a lot of gamers have an aversion to being a demigod, but damn if I didn't love every second of it.

    Well, except Miraak and Hearthfire.

    Those sucked.
