DAWNGUARD REVEALED

May 31, 2012

Epic. (Image Credit: computerandvideogames.com)

So, just a few hours ago, Bethesda released the trailer for Dawnguard, about a week earlier than their would be E3 announcement. Not that I’m complaining of course…shit looks mighty epic. 😀

(If you want to view the trailer, a quick Google search will suffice, at the time of viewing I was #304, so feels pretty good to be on top of this stuff!! 😀 …Or maybe not…since it has a couple thousand likes…WTF Youtube?!)

So, it looks like this add-on will focus on these vampire-like creatures, who want to block out the sun with the use of an Elder Scroll. The player’s choice in this is to either fight them or aid them. If you choose to fight them, you become one of the Dawnguard, a group of humans dedicated to hunting down these vampiric-creatures. If you choose to help the vampires…well, you become one of those fearsome night creatures.

OH SHIT, SON. (Image Credit: Game Informer)

Inevitably, I think what will catch the attention of players the most besides the new transformations and mysterious story, is the possible addition of crossbows (as seen in the trailer), demonic mounts and other new weaponry (oh and in case you missed the news about the 1.6 patch, yes, mounted combat is included!!).

And yes, this DLC is still XBOX 360 exclusive for the first month or so. More details shall probably be given at this year’s E3. Stay tuned!! 😀

(PS: I just wanna give a special birthday shout-out to my awesome sister!! 😀 Love you, you crazy n00b!! ❤)

A Small, Nonsensical Update

May 25, 2012

Angry Alduin is angry. Very angry…
…What else is new?

Well, I apologize for the lack of updates here. With Diablo 3‘s recent release keeping me busy, I haven’t had much time to actually sit down and play some Skyrim.

I do have a post in mind already, but I need 12k first to actually post about it. So I’ve been playing in short bursts to work up the cash. First stop: the Honeybrew Meadery. Gonna steal as much as I can from that place, then sell it to the fence. Hell yeah, quick gold get!!

Once that’s done, I’ll have another article ready.

What’s new?

Well, I got a used HDTV, which I just set up yesterday. I don’t have any HD cables to go with it so Skyrim doesn’t look super sexy yet, but I’ll see if I can get a cable for cheap…(hopefully). At least now, it’ll be a lot easier to read the texts on the screen (not that Skyrim ever had this problem…but a lot of the other 360 games on the old TV did…Dragon Age 2, I’m looking at you!)

The 1.6 Beta update for PC users just came out today, and the only new feature added in besides a few more bug fixes is mounted combat.

MOUNTED.

COMBAT.

Forget the stupid human on his back, we all know the horse is the real hero of this story… HORSEBORN!

FUCK YEAH!!

😀

But to be honest, after watching an IGN review of it…it doesn’t look so easy to do. I mean it looks cool…but the horses are just too darn hard to maneuver. :/ Also, no mounted magic, which sucks giant dragon balls…

(Now we just need mounted followers and my life will be perfect…<3)

And I’ve been watching a bit of the Elder Scrolls online news here and there…and I can’t say I’m impressed just quite yet…But I think my thoughts on that will be for another entry, once more news and things come out…

(Also, no dragons. What. FUCKING–)

…To be honest though, I’M WAY MORE PSYCHED FOR DAWNGUARD!!

STOP BEING A COCKTEASE BETHESDA, AND GIVE US A BIT MORE INFORMATION!! GUAAHH!!

XD

DAWNGUARD

May 6, 2012

Every time I see this…I look into Dovahkin’s eyes…and Skyrim’s Main Theme starts playing in my head. Ooooooohhhhh OoooohHH OOOHH OOOOHHHHH!!!! …GODDAMN IT!!

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one excited about this. I’ve been pretty much checking Bethesda’s blog every other day for the past two weeks hoping to hear of some DLC, something, and finally…

(in Cicero’s voice) A little, teeny, tiny teaser…

😀

Now, I know a whole lot of people are bitching about the 360 having the exclusivity for the first month or so, but you know what, this was pretty much common knowledge even before the game came out. Look at this way, PC users:

-You have a never-ending supply of mods. Hush.

PS3 users:

-Well, you guys have been short-changed enough now, but think of it this way…maybe when it comes out on your console all the bugs and shit will be all ironed out (hopefully…you know how Bethesda games are at launch…buggy as hell!!)

I have a 360, so I’m not going to complain. Even if I didn’t get the DLC first (which actually, I probably won’t buy it at launch anyway…I can’t, unless they do a physical disc, as I don’t have LIVE), I still had enough adventuring and dragon-ass kicking to tide me over in the meantime.

I am curious to what it’s actually about. Hopefully it’s an epic, EPIC expansion, like they did with Oblivion (which I never really got into, Shivering Isles, I mean, just haven’t gotten to it)…but I hope you don’t have to start a new game to fully take advantage of new features and things…):

Some people are speculating the glow-y eyes are vampire-esque…maaaybe. Dunno how it would work with the werewolf players, though. Or it could be the souls of the dragon the Dovahkiin has absorbed…maybe you get some new storyline with that? I mean, you only need so many dragon souls to unlock shouts, after which, they become pretty useless…I’d like to see Bethesda do something with that…more epic than the souls-to-perks PC mod…Hmmmm…

I keep thinking though:

Dawn:

Dawnstar, Mythic Dawn

Guard:

A fort. For some reason I think of forts, lol.

DAWNGUARD.

Sounds epic.

I can’t wait.

COME ON, HURRY UP E3!!

APPEAL TO ROLEPLAYERS

May 6, 2012

I’m looking for a casual Skyrim RP, 1-1 novel style (NO CHATSPEAK). Any pairings are welcome, I’m okay with M/M, M/F, F/F, whatever. OCs are fine, but I’d like to try to play some other canon characters too, please.

Doesn’t matter if it follows the game’s questline or not, I don’t care.

We can RP on AIM, MSN, Skype, e-mail, whatever. I don’t do forums, though.

If you’re interested, send me a message through wordpress. If you don’t have wordpress…well…

You can email me at:
