Skyrim’s Coming Out
Unless you don’t own an XBOX360 or a PS3 and have a PC that’s 8 years old, you might have heard about this little game coming out called Skyrim. People love Bethesda RPG’s because of the freedom of choice, and there’s always so much hype about how much you can do in each new game. I remember when Oblivion came out, my room mates and I spent probably 5 hours trying to make the dumbest fattest circus clown possible in the character creator. We then proceeded to spend 7 hours making him jump constantly and only cast fireballs. Why would we want a fast as hell fire throwing clown that had a 3 meter vertical? Because fuck playing the game the right way, that’s why.
So my point here, is that there’s so much to do that just coming home after work on Friday and firing up the game to play for a couple hours isn’t quite enough. You really need to take a whole day off of work just so you can have your character customized by lunch and you’re out of the tutorial at 3:00PM. You might have a good feel for the combat by the time your wife gets home from work. That will just get you lubed up for the 100+ hours over the next few weeks you’ll spend.
All I’m saying, is that with all the hype this game is getting and as many people will buy this game, probably 3-5 Million, all those sick days might raise a few eyebrows.
