Private viewings by appointment only, I’m afraid.
Dammit. Not completely unexpected, of course – but I can get why some people are a little annoyed that the Civil War is only sorta-kinda resolved, and that the status of the Thalmor hasn’t been resolved. I’m maybe a little bit annoyed myself. Not enough to go into nerdrage or anything, but they’re still kinda leaving money on the table.
Welp, I guess that it’s time to start waiting for Witcher 3 (Dishonored isn’t grabbing me, for some reason).
Because I got this hat:
Damn straight I wore it in public. You know how you see something cool, and you go get the money to buy it, and then you come back to discover that some guy had bought it in the meantime? Well, today I was Some Guy. It is, indeed, a heady feeling.
Back to regular posting tomorrow.
I just spent an hour exploring the question If you take your highest level Skyrim character, take away all her items, drop her on one corner of the map, then start running to the other diagonal corner… what happens?
Well, what happens is that you dive into a lot of caves when you hear dragons roar, up until the point where you scrounge some actual armor. You also end up killing a lot of bears and sabre cats. I had forgotten the joys of hiding in general, but there’s nothing like suddenly remembering that all of your health potions were on the desk at home to make a person appreciate the art of not starting fights with giants.
But, yeah, new game time.
…well, the main quest, at least. Anyway: well worth the twenty bucks. Interesting main quest and good visuals; I got stretched a little even though I was running a 77th level character. Also: if you’ve been having trouble finding specific copies of books for your library collection, this add-on will take care of that.
Hoo, boy: yes, it will.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing; I’ve clocked in a staggering amount of hours in Skyrim*. And, apparently, so have the folks making The Witcher 3. Anyway, first details here; sounds like I’m not the only one who found certain aspects of The Witcher 2‘s inventory system annoying as all hell. It also sounds like The Witcher 3′s not quite yet ready for release, alas.
*Dragonborn’s going well so far, actually.
In the last few weeks, Skyrim’s Dragonborn PS3 DLC release date has been the topic of numerous articles predicting absolutely nothing. The simple fact of the matter is that there is no definite release date for the Dragonborn DLC for the PlayStation 3 or the PC. But there have been a lot of rumors surrounding each. One of those rumors suggested that the PC release date for the Dragonborn DLC was being delayed because Bethesda, in its infinite un-wisdom, doesn’t want to release it before DLC for the PS3 is available. And although Bethesda hasn’t come out and said when these DLCs will be available, they felt the need to let fans know that there is not some marketing conspiracy keeping it off the PC.
“I’ve seen folks posting that we’re holding the PC release and that’s not the case. There’s a lot of work that goes into getting the content ready for both platforms,” Bethesda posted on their blog.
…and I’m not even upset about the lie, mind you. In their shoes I’d lie, too. The truth of the matter is obvious: Bethesda has been having a lot of problems with the PS3 platform version of Skyrim, they’ve already messed about with PS3 fans’ expectations on existing DLC, and us PC users have a lot less to complain about. Mind you, I think that they should just admit failure and give me the stupid Dragonborn DLC – I am not a PS3 user, so their problems are their problems – but I grok why they aren’t doing that.
Still. I want the dang DLC, already.
Titles like this are driving me nuts: “Skyrim’s Dragonborn DLC introduces great villains, Lovecraft, and poor dragon controls.” I wasn’t really all that big on dragon mounts anyway. Come on, January…
PS: Yes, I could get it through the Xbox. Real shame that I can’t port over my game saves though, huh?
Now I can build my doll a new house, and make it just the way I like it, and get her a bunch of other dolls to live there, and we can ADOPT a couple, and then we can have adventures and rescues and FUN!
…Seriously, this is classic “They’re not dolls, they’re action figures!” territory. Mind, I’ve been saving up iron ingots for a month.
