The patch, which was in beta just last week, brings numerous bug and quest fixes, including one fix concerning unuseable Wabbajacks. Whatever those are.
Most interesting of all, as far as I’m concerned, is that the patch also introduces a new feature to the PC version of the Skyrin launcher: support for the Skyrim Workshop.
May I just state, for the record, that I believe the My Little Pony craze has now reached its apex? Or maybe its nadir…it’s largely a question of perspective as to whether you regard this as the high point of crazy or the depths of insanity:
WhatCulture! attempts to describe them.
Remember when dragons in games used to be fearsome things? Remember when stepping into Destard seemed like the stupidest thing in the world to be doing, no matter how damn badly Sandy wanted you to get that bloody egg for him?
Why is it worth drawing attention to this one? Because it is coming more than two months after the game’s release, and has been delayed in that manner precisely because the reviewer wanted to take in as much of the game as he could.
Remember when Grand Theft Auto 3 released and you thought that you could do anything your heart desired? Looking back now, you will see that GTA was just child?s play. In Elder Scrolls V, you are truly only limited by your imagination. If you can dream it, you can do it. Even something so mundane as staring at the night sky.
I have spent many hours just sneaking around town stealing items for no reason other than to quench the thirst of kleptomania. On more than one occasion this caused me to be pursued by a shop keep or homeowner. One such instance had an invincible shop keep chasing me for about 45 minutes. Sure, I could have let him kill me or went to jail, but as I said, you can do anything and I wanted to enjoy the chase.
He gives the game a 9/10 rating, objectively quite good. And yet, you almost get the impression that he does so just ever so slightly against his will:
I was not just a little pissed off that Skyrim snagged so many GOTY awards away from Arkham City; I was livid. However, in the end it probably deserves it. With Batman you get a fun world to explore for a couple dozen hours, and with Skyrim you get a game that could take over your life. If you only had money to buy one game this year, then Elder Scrolls V would be the wisest choice. Our hats go off to Bethesda for a job well done and maybe, just maybe, we can get bored with Skyrim before the next title in the series.
Christopher Livingston, at PC Gamer, has posted the eigth installment of his “stroll” through Skyrim, in which he attempts to play the game as though he were just one more NPC in its massive world.
He seems to want to marry his character off.
