Skyrim, getting closer every day.
So who else, like me, is incredibly excited for Skyrim?!
Call me a huge nerd. Viking wannabe. Fanboy. These names are water off my duck-like back, if it was duck-like and your insults were water. Point is, i don't care, I'm so excited. Back on track: I've already been thinking about my character. As the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves guilds are confirmed, as are vampires, I think I'm going to take my Oblivion style character and play a similar role. Dark Elf, blade, bow, poisons and destruction magic, and play stealthily / murderously.
So have you guys given any thought to what you wanna play as? or what you're most looking forward to?
Some of the things that most stood out for me was - the new level up system, how it looks to the stars and you use them to guide your path. Thats a great idea, as the sky in Oblivion was incredible, and the star signs and stones were cool, but this makes a much better use. Secondly, the map is 3D now, that looks beautiful. As does the landscape and cities. The water flows, the mountains and forests look almost real. One thing I did read in a preview was how a guy killed a bandit then pushed his body into a river, and followed it for ages, until it went off a waterfall. The developer said he could've followed it much longer to, and it wouldnt just vanish. That sort of physics sounds awesome. Other things, dual wielding spells and weapons, each dungeon is unique, and improved cities. I'm hyped for it all.
Let the Skyrim discussion commence!
Ps, though I wish to play a Dark Elf, I'm so tempted to play a Nord with a huge freakin' axe and smash everything, that was a lot of fun in Oblivion. Space Wolf style.
My sons, the galaxy is burning.
We all bear witness to a final truth - our way is not the way of the Imperium
