In light of recent events here at the GeekParty Mansion, I’ve come to understand the full might and amazement that is the chicken. I admit, I was less than certain at first. But after being strapped to a chair and getting clucked at for thirty six straight hours, I have come to see the light. That’s why today, I’m bringing you the one thing that The Elder Scrolls V; Skyrim needs more of:
Recently, EA attempted to garner some goodwill and gave away Dragon Age: Origins for free. It doesn’t make up for being a generally horrible company, but it does mean I got a free copy of a well-regarded game. I’m trying to play it, but I keep coming up against one major problem.
The quest markers aren’t very good.
Every so often, a game comes around that forces us to ask the question “how violent is too violent?” Sometimes it’s Grand Theft Auto; sometimes, it’s the “No Russian” mission in Call of Duty. This time around, it looks like it’s going to be Hatred.
While the game’s developers are almost certainly trolls, that doesn’t mean the violence conversation isn’t worth having.
One of the more entertaining aspects of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the in-game time system. I’m not quite sure how they measure time, because it takes about two in-game hours to walk from Whiterun to Rorikstead, while fast-traveling takes half an in-game day.
Most amusingly, you can sleep your life away, an ability I sorely wish I actually had.
If you’re anything like me, Halloween is basically your Christmas. I’ve had the Halloween decorations up around the GeekParty mansion since the beginning of the month. Josh W. is already getting tired of walking through cobwebs, and he’s also annoyed because I won’t tell him which ones are fake and which ones were woven by the real spiders I set loose in the house.
I digress. Have some free printable patterns for your pumpkin carving!
I’ve been keeping my opinion on the whole #GamerGate bullshit in check, because my opinion is somewhat more harsh and derogatory than our good Josh W.’s opinion. See, he feels that we should at least give the #GamerGate people a fair chance to voice their concerns.
Recently, a certain staff writer whose name rhymes with Wholian Watkins decided to be snarky and write a formal letter of apology. In it, he oh-so-snidely insinuates that I was wrong for writing an article pointing out that his opinion was dumb.
The problem is, Julian’s original article didn’t actually bring up any genuine point.
I don’t want to make it sound like Hyrule Warriors was anything other than what I hoped it would be. It was, in fact, exactly as fabulous as I’d dreamed. I greatly enjoyed playing a magical elven princess who mowed down mooks. It was great.
Paolo’s recent article, as you may imagine, is 100% true. He totally gave me a copy of RPG Maker 3. Obviously, I need to make the greatest game ever.
I think it should star me, Josh W., Paolo, and Mandi. Josh should be the damsel in distress. I should have both a Princess form and a Pro-Wrestler form.
Maybe we’re trying to find the mystical Princess cup?
