Skyrim … doh!

8 thoughts on “Skyrim … doh!”

    1. I can’t remember the last time I played a real card game, but it’s been decades. Probably during the 70s, when my ex and I played cribbage with friends.

  1. We played a little cribbage in the early ’80s. My wife spends many hours at solitaire on her laptop. Though when our daughter comes over with her Kindle Fire, it’s Scrabble.

    I think it’s great that you play these current games, not that my opinion was requested. I’m sure I would be quickly addicted if one of those devices was connected to my TV.

    1. When my last computer-based game began to fade as players left, moving to the Xbox/TV was sort of a no-brainer. I still greatly miss the camaraderie and community of the big online games, but I was long past the time when I could sit comfortably in front of the computer for hours at a time. The Xbox puts me on the couch in the llving room, a much more comfortable (far too comfortable!) arrangement. (Not that a great new game and a great new comfortable chair couldn’t lure me back to the computer…)

  2. I chased him off around the same time, and decided not to go after him yet. Still too many things to do. I’m sitting at level 46 right now, and I haven’t even touched on the civil war quests yet. If you haven’t done the civil war, I think you can still do these even after slaying Alduin.

    Now, here’s the kicker. Two days ago my Xbox went out and I had to send it to MS for repairs. So now I’m stuck with no Skyrim for a couple weeks. What to do? It’s amazing what a hole is left in the wake of Skyrim. Last night I watched American Idol with my wife. It was sad.

    1. Ooo, I would have serious withdrawal problems without my Xbox. As for the game, I really wish I’d left Alduin alone, although having gotten him doesn’t seem to have cut off any of my other quest lines (I may have trouble with Blades though; I’ve read killing Parthanax (sp?) can be a problem if you kill Alduin first. Besides, I don’t want to kill Parth. I like him!) I finished the civil war quests; sided with the Empire. Working on Thieves Guild now, reluctantly. I don’t like being a “bad guy” but needed to get to the master level archery trainer. Mostly I’m working on smaller side quests. Several seem broken (like the one where you get drunk and wake up someplace else). Very frustrating.

      Hope MS fools you and gets your box back to you SOON! (They won’t be erasing your game saves, will they? They wouldn’t dare!)

... and that's my two cents
