Swearing rats mod for Oblivion puts its vermin in permanent meltdown mode

Oblivion’s rats are now as uncouth as they are unclean, thanks to a mod from creator DavaScript (opens in new tab) that imbues the game’s rodents with all the unbridled rage of early 2000s internet. The Swearing Rats mod (opens in new tab) uses clips from an infamous (and ancient) Ventrilo user meltdown to turn their squeaks and yelps into a barrage of inventive invective. There is no reason for it to exist and we should all be very thankful it does.

The mod is scarily effective. Hearing Oblivion’s rats—probably the weakest enemies in the whole game—threaten to tear off various of my appendages and find new homes for them in other parts of my body really does make them quite a bit more intimidating than they usually are. It’s like being pursued by a hundred four-legged versions of Malcolm Tucker (opens in new tab); I can’t think of anything more terrifying.
