Skyrim, where people will tell you to investigate the graveyard and no one will tell you where that is—and it’s just one grave under a rock.

2 December

I’ve killed five dragons without dying; never killed a bear without reloading three or four times. It’s not quite right. #skyrim

3 December

Not that I care in the least about Halo, but “Turns out the Forerunners didn’t sacrifice themselves, they hid in bunkers” is really lame.

4 December

Heh. I just found out there’s a button for running in Skyrim. More than anything, that explains why the horse was so slow.

7 December

The new Xbox dashboard is pretty, but I hate how it scrolls pane by pane in a list. Should switch to actual scrolling when not using Kinect.

Wouldn’t have bought the pinstriped Jack Skellington avatar if I’d known the Xbox Live app for iOS wouldn’t have antialiasing. Ouch, my eyes.

9 December

Forty hours memorizing the titles of books I’ve already read, and now I switch to English. I do enjoy the Schwarzenegger guards, though. #skyrim

10 December

Stupid NPC gets killed by a dragon as I’m about to finish his quest; I reload, dragon replaced by a blood dragon, goes straight for him now.

14 December

Context, Challenge and Gratification

Damnit, now here I am looking for software to generate ternary plots.

16 December

Finally, my first broken quest in Skyrim. A minor one, sure, but it’s still promising. (Found the serial killer, can’t expose him.)

19 December

Skyrim bandit with an arrow through his head: “Must be the wind.” Skyrim bear: went to CSI school, charts your exact location in half a second.

21 December

Watching a SWTOR video, can’t believe Bioware is doing the whole chest-at-a-90-degree-angle strafe-running thing. In 2011. And Bioware.

25 December

Damn. Looks like I’ve reached the maximum number of saves in Skyrim.

26 December

So much solid Dwemer metal, so little room in my pockets.

I’ve played Skyrim for 70 hours and I still can’t watch my brother play his copy when I’m bored, because there would be spoilers.
