Now the plan was to start this blog and write some insightful thoughts about games and the like. What actually happened was we started this blog, wrote an introduction welcoming all to our blog, then didn’t blog.
Instead we got Battlefield 3 to play and review, but swiftly forgot all about reviews when we were hiding in buildings that were blowing around us, crashing jets within seconds and dying alot. Evening with all the dying this game is seriously good and is worthy of a review.
However the hopes of us ever reviewing seem to have been dashed this morning when Skyrim arrived. To keep with the infantile tone set by the title of this blog, I currently ‘have slipped my tip’ in Skyrim and already I know this game is going to dominate my time for a very very long time. And thus I thought getting some initial thoughts down might be a good idea. So elder scroll down (sorry) for my first amateur impression
Graphically Skyrim is pretty special, its varied subtle colour use, lighting techniques and water effects are visually stunning. It literally makes you want examine the entire screen when you are navigating through the world to soak up every last detail. Music score is spot on, the interludes striking the perfect mood whatever is going on at the time. So far the voice acting seems pretty convincing so far too.
The only minor thing I have noticed so far is that the character animation in my opinion is just a little bit ‘clenched’, its nothing too major but as I am watching the gf play and the character movement is just a touch on the robotic side, I am not slating it but I have seen better in other games (LA Noire for example). The Dragons animation however, is exactly how I thought it would be and I literally cannot wait until I have made one of those bad boys my bitch!
Anyway I have decided that there is only one way to play Skyrim and that is by getting Balls Deep. If you need anything I will be in Windhelm. I am that dodgy looking car thief type in the picture below.
