Since Skyrim’s release we have seen a wide-range of mods to enhance your gaming experience, popular choices include the Serious HD retexture mod, the FXAA Injector mod, a mod which increases the game’s frames-per second and another mod which makes women in the game prettier – well now we have another mod to tell you about which is called the Macho Dragons.
The mod’s name doesn’t give a great deal away, obviously you instantly expect the dragons in Skyrim to be a more formidable force than they already are, but no, in fact this mode simply replaces the realistic scaly exterior of the game’s dragons with a skin which makes the dragon look like Macho Man Randy Savage – which by far makes this the most ridiculous mod we have ever seen.
Below we have embedded an image showing just how Macho Dragons look in the game, as you can see the dragons look a bit deformed and he is wearing the attire we saw Randy Savage wear in the ring during his time with the WWF and WCW.
You can install the mod yourself pretty easily, just head over to SkyrimNexus.com and download the relevant files, once downloaded, extract the archive and place the data folder into your Skyrim folder, once this has been done ensure that ‘Load Loose Files’ is checked in the launcher.
As you can imagine this mod is attracting quite a lot of attention, the YouTube video embedded at the bottom of this post has been viewed almost 2 million times and whilst some people love it, other hate it. Initially we thought that the snippets of voice had been added to the video, but it turns out the Macho Dragons speak while they attack you – things we’ve heard include “the sky’s the limit”, “I’m gonna get ya” and the infamous “yeah”.
Macho Man Randy Savage died back in May 2011 and whilst this may not be the most apt tribute at least it brings joy to those who use it and brings back some fond memories of his wrestling career, there are now calls to bring in Vanilla Ice to replace frost dragons and Eddie Grant to replace storm dragons – what other famous figures / characters would this mod work well with? We think that Goldmember (from Austin Powers) would be uncontrollably funny – how about you?
