Echoes

Who knew a silly post about Angry Birds would get me an Angry Bird (iPad case)? The irony isn't lost on me. Anyhoodle, thank you so much MyDL and sponsors for the very cool bag of tricks I won in MyDL's Major Year-End Blogging Competition.

Skyrim Review

Posted by rabbit1986 in Untagged

So I have been slicing and dicing (with my very large sword) many dragons for the past few weeks now. Like many my eyes have grey rings (people at work think I am working really hard) and while driving I need to massage my mouse finger from all the clicking (he will swing faster, he will swing faster). This has all in all been worth it though, as once again I am in an entire world that I can immerse myself in.
The new levelling up system in Skyrim is by far superior to that of the original allowing you to better plot your skill tree as you move forward. It is simple, functional and allows me to get on with the gaming side of things (never was good with numbers and calculating stats). It also though allows more diversity I feel into other fields so that you do not have to strictly remain a fighter or mage and can better multi class.

The story itself is as per oblivion well thought out and draws the player in. The inclusion of random dragons all over the world is also something I have greatly enjoyed bringing a reality and danger into travelling long distances through the icy countryside. 

One issue  I did have with the game though were one, talking side characters. While the main city was being attacked I happened to be lead into another chamber while following the lord of the land. While he was describing the horror and plan of the attack, his son began to declare who he was and why I should bow to his awesomeness (somewhat take away from my immersion). I found this to happen at other points as well which can get a little annoying. The feeling though is that this was a well developed and thought out game, I can't wait for future content and know that I will enjoy the many, many hours I have left to explore the world (energy banana smoothie here I come).

It sucks to be a psuedo geek.

I have a wireless network from a company called Amobia. The last two weeks I've suddenly started experiencing connectivity issues. So I do the whole support ticket thing, and they tell me they can see there's a problem, but they don't know what the problem is.

Some people always seem to get it wrong, even when they have the best intentions in the world.
