I 100%-ed Skyrim today, it’s a big relief.
So, last week I finished the main storyline of Skyrim, and I thought I’d state some thoughts on it.
The storyline as a whole felt very grand, like you were the centre of the event of the century. Though the ending was a bit odd, because I thought with Alduin dead as a doornail I could become friends with all the dragons, but nope. I blame Bethesda’s Fallout games for making me think that way, since they have the closed endings (not Fallout 3 if you have Broken Steel). It would be cruel too, to prevent access to dragon souls after completing the main story so I guess dragons actually likes burning everything.
Speaking of dragons, I did not kill Paarthunax, and that is simply because I like him more than the Blades (despite them being pretty cool in Oblivion). During the meeting between all the big people, I thought Ulfric was being very whiny (“Fair negotiation? What’s that good for?”). Which is why, once I go back to playing in june, I’ll side with the Imperials just to spite him. Hehehe. Lastly, I thought Sovngarde reminded me a bit of Mankar Camoran’s Paradise from Oblivion, with the “dreamy/otherworldly” feel about it.
So I played a lot of Skyrim this week, when I was at home with my desktop, and I’d like to talk a bit about my experiences with things in the game… some time soon. At the moment of writing this I’m too tired due to 5 hours of train travelling, and I should shower soon and get to bed at a decent time… bla di blah. So this coming week I’ll write some things, just so you know.
You know you’ve had way too much fun exploring when you reach past level 23, and you’ve yet to kill your first dragon.
Been playing Skyrim for a good while today. I’m level 24, and I still only have the fus and the ro, of fus ro dah. I’m currently exploring The Rift, which is taking its time.
Jeremy Soule, the guy behind Secret of Evermore’s music, is also behind the music of Oblivion, Skyrim, and more.
I don’t read enough wiki entries.
