oh! what's this over here...


SKYRIM



My brother keeps laughing at me whenever I say this while playing. As you can see from the screen shot the game is visually stunning, AND it gets five stars for sound, imo. Sound can be very important in creating an experience. Of course, it helps that said brother has totally modded this game out. And for my non-gaming friends, mods are little - or big - enhancements to the game created by fans of the game. Bethesda (the company that makes the game) allows it. For example, one particular mod allows you to have an additional house at the edge of a river. A pretty cool house, I might add, with a tannery and a bridge that crosses over to the other side. Another mod adds textures, or hunger/thirst (which means you have to eat and rest and stay warm), or maybe a cart so you can carry more stuff (loot). Oh, and speaking of loot, guess what I found? The Gaulder Amulet. Well, specifically I found all three pieces of the Amulet, which, when reforged gave me 30 extra points of magic, health, and stamina. I was quite pleased.


And I hope you will all forgive me for not making it around to see everyone on Wednesday. I have specifically reserved Wednesday mornings as my time to go visiting but we lost power early Wednesday morning and never got it back 'til late afternoon. By that time I was on my way to my mom's for dinner. Which took priority.

Hey, sorry, they were killer chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Not to mention the dinner.

  2. I'm hooked on Skyrim, and I'm making it worse for myself by not fast travelling everywhere (I'm a hunter so I need to stalk the forests). I do have a rule that if something shows up on my compass that's undiscovered and it's closeby, I'll go check it out.

    1. I could easily play non-stop and forget about writing as well as a lot of other things!

  5. I'm not a gamer, but I'm rather impressed with that photo of the world. I'm afraid I might get sucked into playing that all day if I ever started. :P

    1. It definitely has a strong suck factor - in a good way!

    1. No, and my mom's chocolate cupcakes are pretty darn irresistible. I may have to get the recipe, much as I hate to cook.

    1. well, usually he lets me play and he watches. It's kind of like watching a movie. There's the big, major quest, where you have to choose sides, and then all the little or side quests which help form your character. It's way too much fun and I can totally see how people could just want to play all the time. Of course, not all games are as awesome as Skyrim :)
