Installing. Looking forward to next week, where I will have time to play it...
Started playing tonight... Ah, this could definitely be my new Fallout. So peaceful and beautiful. I went into a dungeon, killed some zombies, got some cool looking weapons... Ah, everything is so nice.
Played all day... So many awesome moments; killed a goat by whacking it with a bow, robbed a sleeping ghost, almost became a vampire, and then the most disappointing message in the game: 'bear is too powerful for Raise Zombie'.
*Yawn*. Enough Skyrim for today.
OK, second freeze in two days. Enough Skyrim for tonight.
I'm level 19 and I'm a werewolf. I'm currently saving up for a house in Whiterun, and I had to carry vast amounts of loot from a tomb mission to Skyrim, selling it for all the money of all vendors in Whiterun. I was so fat with loot, but I invented a faster way of walking, using a combination of power attacks and Shouts. I felt slightly ridiculous, but now I have sweet money to comfort me.
Level 24. The Companions mortal enemies, The Silver Hand, has been wiped out.
Level 31. Fighting my way through the ghostly tomb of Labyrinthian. Very atmospheric.
Completed the Eye of Magnus quest line.
I have been playing on a video projector, borrowed from the Playdead offices for our Gears of War 3 Horde 2.0 marathon yesterday. Skyrim is extremely well suited for this cinematic treatment. I'm being completely sucked into the beautiful world of this game. I completed Alduin's Wall, and got an audience with the mysterious Paarthurnax, the leader of the Greybeards. The nature of Paarthurnax was a great reveal, and I really like where the main quest is going. It seems I'm 11/18 quests through the main quest line.
My level 35 character (and me) has stopped caring, and joined The Thieves Guild. This moral quagmire has landed me in a weirdly familiar situation, going into a cellar to kill rats...
I've been playing a bit yesterday and today. I've forgotton all about morals and ethics, and my character has gone completely rogue, stealing anything that's not bolted down, silently backstabbing unknowing guards, even murdering innocent people in their sleep for a few pieces of gold. Oh, what fun! (He's going straight to Elder Scroll Hell)
Completed 12/18 story quests.
Inspired by Greg Kasavin's Skyrim live stream of and my Barbarian dude from Diablo III, I have started using two-handed weapons. I'm still better with one-handed weapons, but I'm getting better.
The World-Eater's Eyrie is pretty challenging. It's cool that I actually have to pay attention to the game.
completed the game with Nord.
Defeated Alduin and completed the Main Story quests.
Got the Explorer achievement.
- Discovered 100 locations.
Spent a lot of time in Markarth, a place I never visited before. Apart from switching to two-handed weapons, I also started using heavy armor, trying to fashion myself into some sort of tank. I bought the Dragonborn DLC, looking forward to discovering it.
After travelling to the island of Solstheim, I entered the Raven Rock Mines, and found the Bloodskal Blade, which opened the Bloodskal Door (in a very cool way). It revealed the Black Book, which took me to the realm of Apocypha, a nightmarish Lovecraftian place. Very exciting.
I just played all day without noticing it. Haven't even gotten anything to eat yet.
While Nabaz was watching, I was fighting and losing an epic battle with a Lurking Sentinel on the east coast of Solstheim. I ended up taking refuge in Fort Frostmoth, and ended up murdering General Flax Carius and stealing his mighty warhammer Chapmion's Cudgel.
