You can now play as Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy in Resident Evil 3 Remake
DarknessValtier has released a pretty cool mod for Resident Evil 3 Remake that lets you play as Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. This mod features full facial expressions/animations, though it does not pack any sound samples for Aloy’s voice.
Now as you may have guessed, this is a character swap mod and nothing more. Still, I’m pretty sure that Aloy’s fans will really appreciate it.
>> Head to Nexus Mods to get it.
Super Mario 64 Plus released, improves camera & controls, adds 60fps mode
MorsGames has released a must-have modification for the unofficial PC port of Super Mario 64. Super Mario 64 Plus focuses on customizability and aims to add features that not only fix some of the issues found in the base game but also enhance the gameplay overall with extra options.
Going into more details, Super Mario 64 Plus brings more responsive controls and improves the camera. Moreover, it brings a 60fps mode via interpolation. The original version runs at 30fps, so this is something that will interest a number of players.

New Grand Theft Auto 4 Mod aims to improve all textures, first version out
Modder ‘Allaga’ is currently working on a new HD Texture Pack for Grand Theft Auto 4. This pack aims to improve/overhaul all of the game’s textures. Now while this is a difficult task, the modder aims to release smaller versions over time (until the mod is complete).
The first version of Grand Theft Auto 4 4K2K Allaga Graphics Mod that is available for download covers buildings and characters.
This mod aims to bring the world of World of Warcraft to Mount & Blade 2
The Reborn Team has announced a complete overhaul for Mount & Blade 2 that aims to recreate the world of Azeroth in it. This mod is currently in a beta phase, and its first version is available for download.
The first version of Mount and Warcraft Reborn brings to the game one armor and a sword from WoW.
Now I’ll have to be honest here; I don’t know whether the team will be able to complete this mod. Bringing all the races, armors, weapons and environments of WoW to Mount & Blade 2 is a huge task. And, from what I could see, the Reborn Team is a bit small (at the moment). Not only that, but there is currently only one weapon and armor so yeah, the team should have waited until it had more on its hands.
>> Available from Nexus Mods.
