Skyrim.jpgIt has been all most a full year since I lasted played Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  Have decided yet on a new game to buy so I put in Skyrim last night.  This time around decided I should start a  new game over with a new character.   Then thought it might be fun to pick a different character that I wouldn’t mostly likely to pick.  Then decided I should play the game different this time around.  Pick different skills, may be try more of the magic out and the crafting.

I like all ready said, it has been all most a year I have played.   So then the game started up it was all most like playing a bran new game.  Took me a few minutes to get use to the controls but it all came back to me.  The game still sucks you in and you want to keep playing.  It still looks great after been out for all most two years.  The only think I noticed was there are hiccups or slow downs.  But it is not big deal.  The game is so fun.  If you have never tried this game yet.  Go out and get it.  Pretty sure you can find it for a good price now.

It has been about a month since I have played Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or any video game.  Did play DiRT 3 online once, only for a few minutes.  There is a new patch out, 1.5 for Skyrim.  It fixes a bunch of things.  But one of the cool new things add is kill cameras for projectile weapons and spells.  This made start playing again.  Have to say the kill camera on the arrows is pretty slick.  Love this game, now need to stick with it.  Think I have played about 42 hours and have not scratched the surface.  You can read all of what the patch fixes/adds > here.

Back Into Skyrim

It was my day off yesterday so decided to get back into Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  Stopped playing this just after Christmas.  Not because it wasn’t any good.  It was because I got Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.  Unlooked a lot of stuff in that game.  There is still things I want to get but wanted a change.  So I but Skyrim back in.  Man it sucked me right back in.  Once I got used to the controls again.  Got made at one quest.  Fighting one boss like guy and my weapon disappears.  Up in the top corner of the screen it says you have be disarmed.  Ended up dying.  Tried again same thing happened but I own the battle but lost my favourite sword.  Forget what it was called.  Will be on the look out for another one like it.

If you have not tired this game yet you need to go and buy it.  It has so many layers.  Has something for every one.  Just pure fun game to play.

Dragon Shout App

Heard about a new app coming out called Dragon Shout for iOS and Android.  It is used for the game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  What the app is, is a map of Skryim that you interact with.  Marking quests, items and what not.   Then you can share it with others and you can see others map marks.  Sound pretty cool.  I think it is going to be free when it comes out.  Not sure when that is but will yet you know when it does.  If it is free I will be getting it.

From their Twitter account, “Dragon Shout App is a Skyrim mobile app that lets users drop journal markers on a custom drawn Skyrim map. Share markers with people in your party and more.”

Skyrim So Far

Was trying to think what to write about today.  Than thought why not talk about Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim again.  Have put a few good hours into it so far.  I am about level 11 now.  Spent most of the time just exploring.   Did a few main story quests then got stuck on.  Have to to climb to top of a mountain.  Which is fine but there is some kind of a troll that keeps killing me.   Died like six times in a row.  So gave up on that, will got back once I am a higher level I guess that is how it works.  Did some side quest to get some  money and a lot of exploring to get stuff to sell.  Wanted to but a house.   Once I bought the house it is dump in side.  Find out that you have to buy stuff to make it look a a real house.  Liking the game so far.  It is I keep getting killed by running into enemies that are hard to kill.   All so found a cool Wiki site with all kind of info of stuff in the game > here.
