Monitor. I guess I could hijack RCC's computer since he has it hooked up to the TV to play it on a big screen. :-)

Oh yes, I'm level 48 now.

Kinda buggy. Not sure if I think it's better than Oblivion but I like them both.

I would buy it, but I took a poverty to the bank.

Give me one good reason why I should make my wife buy Skyrim for my birthday instead of one of these:

I picked up the strategy guide at Wal-Mart. It's an inch thick and cost $26. Jeebus! The game itself is $60!

Yeah. Can't crib pencils and paper for these from the old bats at the local bingo hall.

Because after using it a few times it'll probably end up gathering dust.

My kids bought me Skyrim for Father's Day.

:clap:

I watched the intro with them. Very cool. You start the game with your hands bound, on the way to be executed with some other characters. On of them is placed on the chopping block and the executioner raises the axe. I'm thinking they'll pull the camera away like all other games do. I was......incorrect.

:o That's uh........that's rather graphic... :o

Oh well, the kids are probably going to need therapy later in life anyway. This memory will be a good ice breaker for the psychiatrist.

So they move you to the chopping block....without even bothering to clean the thing or remove the other head from the basket. Sheesh, they're not very sanitary in Skyrim.

Didn't get to play much. Had to go eat dinner.

Happy Day. :)

This game is overwhelming.

I'm only level 29, and so far, I've comitted to about 70-100 quests. I haven't even explored 1/10th of the map, and I think there are a least 10 cities that I haven't visited.

I've become a wear-wolf, joined a stormcloack rebellion and taken over the central city, and slain about 7 dragons.

Thankfully, the quest tracking log and maps are pretty good, or else I would be completely confused. This game is huge.

Terrible game for obsessive-compulsive people.

I've beaten the main story line twice now, once with a thief and once with a warrior. Now I'm playing the game again with a wizard, but I want to explore the entire map before finishing. Let's see, I'm 38 years old now........I should be finished before I die, as long as I don't get cancer or fall asleep while driving or something.

I found a dead body with a sack of 6 gold in a tree trunk in the middle of nowhere. Who the hell has time to program this shit? :x
