~ Skyrim ~

Skyrim probably the most anticipated game of the year, and what most of the gaming community is saying will be the best game of the year. If you haven't seen anything about this game i will tell you here. First off the game has an amazing 16miles of land to cover which is ridiculous for the quality of graphics that the world is cover'd in. Bethesda the gaming company that has made all of the "The Elder Scrolls" games have a brand new engine that Skyrim will be running off of, new graphics, and all new game-play.The great artists at Bethesda have hand crafted the entire world of Skyrim. Like you can see in the video the graphics are amazing, from the plants on the ground to all the mountain you can climb you are assured to be wow'd by the details. They have made all items in the game 3D so that you can zoom in and rotate on anything from the armor and weapons you use to the food you catch or hunt. While you are in the many towns of the games you will see that the people of the town don't just aimlessly walk around and that they actually have jobs and routines, also in these towns you yourself can pick up jobs. There are over 150 dungeons to explore, and horses to help you get from place to place. Many of the monster are unscripted, so they do almost what ever they want. You might be fighting things in a open field and a dragon will come out of no where and try to kill everything, but there are also creatures that will not attack you on sight but will if you mess with them. You play a character that is "dragon born" which means he has the soul of a dragon and through out the game when you kill dragons you absorb there souls to gain shouting abilities( which are abilities using the dragon language), there are 3 levels to each dragon shout. One of the crazies thing that i have learned about this game that is it has so many hours of game play that the Bethesda employees actually stopped counting at about 300 hours of game play!! They also stopped counting the different types of environments, with the 7 major regions there are all sorts of different dungeons and wildlands. Factions are returning with The College of Winterhold (mage guild), The Companions (warrior guild), and the Thieve's Guild. 

My personal thought on this game are that it is going to be one of the best RPG's that i have ever played. The graphics are awesome to say the least. It takes play 200 years after Oblivion, and the game has 300 freaking hours of game play, which is another thing about this game that has floored me besides the fact that you have a 16 mile big world at your disposal to run around and do what ever you feel like doing. Even me being a huge FPS gamer i wouldn't doubt it if this game takes game of the year easily. 10/10 so far by what i have seen for this game.

  2. Skyrim, don't let me down. I spent HUNDREDS of hours in Oblivion, and at least twice as much in Morrowind. I can't say I agree with them making the series a bit more linear, but so far I haven't disliked what I've seen. Dragon battles look EPIC.

  9. Seriously I can't wait for this game to drop. It's going to definitely lower my GPA because it definitely looks that good.

  10. I liked Oblivion but I just had too many problems with it, so I hope that they get those fixed. Morrowind had things at high extremes, and Oblivion countered with things at low extremes, so yes, may they meet in the middle with Skyrim.
