Skyrim!


The latest incarnation of a game series I started way back in the 90s (The Elder Scrolls: Arena) is almost upon us!

While I wait to play it *next* week (sigh), here is a great cartoon from Penny Arcade.

:::Salivates:::

We're so excited for this in our home too! emoticon

I didn't play Arena, but came in at Daggerfall and have been hooked on the Elder Scrolls ever since.

Re: Skyrim!


I have been playing quite a bit of Skyrim since Wed night. Side benefit of working from home most of the week since I've been sick.

If you have been a fan of Elder Scrolls series, I think you will really like this edition. For those that have never played the series, it is a classless game. There are a number of skills that increase as you use them. Enough increases, and you level up. The skill types break down into warrior, mage and thief.

Skyrim adds a new elements; dragon shouts. You can new words for shouts through different means in the game. The words are formed into sentences which make the shouts stronger.

For my character, I sneak around and pick off with my bow. When the mob gets closer, I switch to 1-h weapon + spell + shout.

I'm not playing just the main plot. I'll get to that over time. I do fully expect to put in 100+ hours into this game before I'm done with it emoticon
