SKYRIM
« on: November 11, 2011, 03:17:04 pm »


The latest installment in the Elder Scrollz series comes out today. I'm so excited that I'm making a constant high pitched eeeeeee noise.

In Skyrim, you can "be anything you can imagine". A limitless world of endless possibilities and infinite choices. You will become the character of your utmost fantasies, thrilling the world with your acts of heroism and daring-do.

Who will I become on this epic quest of righteous destiny?

I will become the Noid, the twisted and insane Dominos Pizza mascot from the late 1980s.



I'll crusade all over the frosty northlands of Tamriel, cooling down people's pizzas, and giving them clayanimation handjobs. My primary skills will be blunt weapons, stealth, and love.


Are you guys picking this shit up? What are you going to play as?

I preordered my copy months ago. It was supposed to turn up today. It is now 3pm, and other people in my area have had theirs arrive four hours ago... mine is not here.  :sad:

My grand plan to play TROGDOR the BURNINATOR and ensure that all of the peasants are suitably enflamed is unravelling before my eyes. I am very sad.
I had an existential crisis and all I got was this stupid gender.

Preordered in august.  Just waiting on UPS to deliver.

The forum posts about the PC version have me a bit worried though.

actually maybe I'll make SKYRIM CAIN as my character



coincidentally, this character's story will also involve insanity and pizza deliveries

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

I will be playing as VinterFist the Lord of the Norwegian Black Metal Clan.  I will smite my enemies with inverted crosses and cover them in corpse-paint.  My lair will be my grandmother's basement.

This looks interesting. I might just buy my first video game in years.

And play as Noddy.

I'm going to get this for Xmas, since, if I buy it now, people will struggle to get me something I like.

Also, I will be boring and play a stealthy character that relies on speed, stabs people when they are looking the wrong way and occasionally uses just enough magic to stay protected from the worst damage thrown in my way.  I like to call this class "being sensible, since almost everything can kick my ass".

Also, hopefully a month and a half will give me enough time to finish Morrowind.  Though probably not  :)

I am so sad  :cry:

Quote from: Amazon
    Following feedback from many customers regarding non-delivery of Skyrim today, we have fully investigated the situation with Royal Mail. Unfortunately, we’ve now learned that our local sorting office failed to deliver some of our sacks to the main distribution hub on Wednesday evening. This has effected many orders –mainly for Skyrim on PC Royal Mail have confirmed that the delayed sacks were then taken to the distribution centre the following day (Thursday) and therefore the affected orders are now on route for delivery and should be with you very soon.

Probably monday at the earliest now.  :cry:

God damn fucking GameStop ran out of the pre-order bonus and sold out of the Manual.

 :cramstipated:

Should have done midnight release but have to work today.

Damn adult responsibilities.

Now to just get fitted for a catheter and an IV and I'm set to not move from the couch for the weekend.

Gamestop rant:

My least favorite thing about gamestop is the antics they pull to get you to sign up for their rewards card and preorder new stuff.

Today the guy was harassing me about not pre-ordering Assassins Creed 3. I was like, dude, I just put down like 65 bucks on a game, I don't need to buy ANOTHER game today.

He's like "Are you serious? You buy it later, you're getting a $60 game for $60. You pay for it now, you're getting a $130 game for $60. "

I didn't want to get into it with him. There's no way the little preorder gift or bonus content is going to be worth more than the game itself. He was starting to get visibly pissed off at me. His tone of voice changed to annoyance, like I'm some moron crapping up his store with my outlandish cheapness.

This happened last Christmas too -- the same guy asked me if I was SURE I didn't want a rewards card about four or five times in a row. "Are you SURE? Really? It doesn't cost you anything. And you're still sure. Okay.  :roll:"

Listen man, control of my PI is worth more to me than the five percent discount or whatever. I give it to you, I don't know what's going to happen to it, but it's clearly worth MORE to you than 5% of what I spend here, otherwise rewards cards wouldn't exist. So I'm going to pay the regular market rate and hold onto my data. That's win/win, isn't it?
