It's East meets West. A Japanese gamer has inserted Final Fantasy XIII heroine Lightning into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with a character mod. Here are the results.

Yay! now she can have substandard animation too!

And be in a game that is fun!

GraveLord2549d ago

Is your idea of fun aimless wandering in a fictional world with lines and lines of boring dialog? Sure the gameplay of Skyrim might be good but everything else is just bland and boring.(my opinion of course)

inveni02549d ago

Sorry you got hammered by disagrees. You're actually right, though...sort of. I spent 65 hours playing Skyrim... In other words, I liked it. A lot. But it's very substandard in almost every aspect. The only good thing is the exploration... Wandering into a cave for no good reason and finding a mystical tree at the top of a waterfall, surrounded by wood sprites.... There's something great about it. But the reality is that every other aspect is so sub par, it would put Bethesda out of business if the exploration wasn't done right.

Even the PS3 version of Skyrim is still a LOT more fun than FFXIII's badly-written corridors.

Look Ma, No Linearity!

Just a bunch of pointless, disjointed "quest" things.

wow that is awesome now time to mod master chief armour into the game too lol

cyguration2549d ago

Yeah boi!

I second that motion.

ATi_Elite2549d ago (Edited 2549d ago )

FF has become more of a boring linear CGI movie

while SKyrim is a game that you actually play and control.

Anyway the Mod is great and the FF character looks HOT in Skyrim's scenery.

Her thighs are a little Boney....she may need to eat a steak or two.

thewhoopimen2549d ago

Is it me or is she the hottest thing in Skyrim lol.

Time for that nude mod.

it's such a shame we can't get mods like that for the console versions.

those swords are pretty cool too.

h311rais3r2549d ago

You can. U just have to mod ur console lol.

cyguration2549d ago

LOL what idiot disagreed with you?

Probably some console fanboy purist "Don't mod teh consoles guyz, M$ will lose teh money!"

Hufandpuf2549d ago

I can get mods on my games if I mod my console? Cool.

TheMutator2549d ago

dont put that crap of character in my Skyriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim

jrbeerman112549d ago

i was severely dissapointed with the game ffxiii, but lighting as a character was not half bad.

I also find it typical (and funny) that they made her look more revealing. Upon looking at the nexus for top downloads, you will see plenty of the boobie mods.

swords look badass

This is not video game news.
Every damn f*in CoD game, every console exclusive, every game that is a little bigger gets "news" at least twice a day, even WORSE after it is released.

"Why the PSG1 sucks in COD"
"Why I think that the spawn times are too big"
"This mod is cool"
"5 reasons you should buy this game for christmas"
"A dev farted" - 2 hours later: 500° and 56 comments.

Is there any way to block those permanently?
Not every news from a specific game, but like a function to block every one of those news that annoy me, so I will at least never have to look at them again.

By the way: I love the living F* out of Skyrim. I just don't wanna read any "news" like this. This is not why I come to this site.

tigertron2549d ago

To be fair, its a great mod thats related to Final Fantasy. Those modders have done a great job of bringing Lightning to Skyrim. Although I'm not quite sure about the lingerie shes wearing. (Well, its not but its boderline) :P

jrbeerman112549d ago

its N4G

easiest way to block these is to not come to this site unfortunately.

I would also suggest not paying too much attention to the articles with high degrees, as those tend to be flamebait articles.

cyguration2549d ago

I assume you don't like DLC news either? (Not a troll question, I honestly want to know)

You do know that DLC is nothing more than paid-for mods, right? Most modders from back in the Quake/Doom days are now working for many dev teams as map makers and scripters. You do know that right?

Would you like news "like this" blocked if it was Bethesda announcing you could play Lightning in Skyrim as opposed to some guy you never heard of?

Besides you can play her for free as opposed to paying like $5 to play Robin in Batman Arkham City (which was also top front page news here on N4G).

-Gespenst-2549d ago

I totally agree. However it's too cool a mod to ignore, especially if you're an FF fan like myself (and many others)

would have been nice if kotaku actually included the download link to that mod or a link to the site hosting that mod so we can know if its real or not.
