Orcs must die is awesome.  Thank god for bit torrent though, I'd never have played mw3 bf3 or orcs must die if not for torrents.  Video games don't fit into my budget at all.

I can't wait to get into this fucker.  Was a little preoccupied earlier... 

I took MW3 up to GameStop, handed it in, and slapped down Skyrim.  The dude at the counter got all happy.  I think he was probably a /b/tard.  I was gonna ask him for Battletoads, but he was so fucking genuine I didn't wanna spoil it. 

Walked outta there spending $27 on it.

I'm having fun with Skyrim, but yeah definitely is more console friendly.  These types of games are often a bit slow, but I am enjoying it so far.

I played a ton of Morrowind, a little bit of Oblivion, and haven't bothered with Skyrim.
Morrowind is still my favorite.

Coming from my perspective, I don't mind it slow.  I have absolutely *zero* gaming experience.  So, it's taking me a while to figure out everything like the maps, appropriate times to use the potions and when to eat.  

Normally, I'd expect something more straightforward, where you just bash your way through everything.  This is entirely different.  It requires a lot of fuckin' around.  

The developer of this game - who was completely familiar with all things in the game -  took about 65 hours to "run through it" with no side-missions.  

For me, it should take thousands of hours - or at least many hundreds.  

I blundered my way up to "level two" last night, somehow..  taking it for a test ride.  And ended up in jail, with all my shit seized.  

So today, I completely re-started it from scratch, redesigned my dude, using different techniques, knowing a little better how I can operate in this world.  

I think it's awesome.  There is just so much shit, and ways to behave, I still can't wrap my head around it entirely.  But I'm getting better.  

This is gonna be so sick when I'm more proficient and leveled-up to being a bad-ass motherfucker...  

Playing on PS3.  I'm way up in the mountains, a few hours in from the opening sequence.  Didn't even reach the first town yet.  I'm absolutely blown away.

What kind of characters are yall running on skyrim? I usually play a 2 handed sword wielding battle mage, But doesn't work too well on skyrim since i cant cast while using a 2 handed weapon.

Skyrim seems geared towards mages due to dual wield magic, so i think im going to restart character all mage

I don't think this stuff through too much in advance. Sometimes it works and sometimes it bites me in the ass. I like rogue-type stuff (picking locks, sneaking) but also like magic, so I'm combining the two. Means I won't get all-powerful in anything, but I'm more versatile.

I'm almost to level 11, bought a horse (waste of money if you travel with companions, since they have to walk, but yay - horse!) and a house, which was worth every dime. Spent one entire "day" (in-game), rearranging my house, then came back to find shit thrown everywhere, like it had been tossed. Hopefully the new video driver (specifically for Skyrim) I installed will take care of that. I'm about to go back in, so I'll find out if that fixed the problem. I'm taking every book I can get without stealing, and am filling the shelves like mad. (Best part of the house, IMO, after the chests where you can store tons of stuff.)

Melee can wield dual single handed weapons yo.

Also, if you work up your stamina you can last longer in a fight than a mage.

I'm playing Destruction/Restoration+Sneaking around shit.

Lockpicking is great for dungeon delving and wizards are always fun for me.

Little known Shawfact - I played the same D&D character from the age of 16 to 28, with the same group of guys. Thursday nights and Sundays from around noon to 9pm. Twelve years. We played a fairly conservative campaign (No Monty Hall bullshit) and I retired Hexus Dominar at the ripe old level of 24. He was a Lawful Neutral Necromancy specialist. I could write five or six books out of his adventures if I weren't so embarrassed at the idea.

Would you say that Lawful Neutral is the most "libertarian" alignment?

I'm using a brown haired guy, one hand axe, one hand shield.  Heavy armor!  Also, like the longbow.  

So far, this guy is just a warrior, and I'm gonna keep him that way a while.  Get him buff, so people don't keep slaughtering me.

After a while, I'll up the magic side, 'cause I think I'll enjoy that.  But it's confusing to me, so brawn first.
