    Eh, nothing wrong with that. The most important thing is whether you are enjoying it. Not everything is for everyone. I can never play SC multiplayer, I only want the campaign. I like MW3, but again, only the campaign and nothing else.

    DIfferent strokes and all.

    Yeah same here I have played Skyrim, MW3, Battlefield 3 and SC2 recently and I have to say that I hate this multiplayer-online shit. The campaigns where awesome and I have enjoyed them a lot. So naturally Skyrim is the perfect game for me and it was just epic because you can actually do whatever you want without being forced to do anything. You know I have played WoW for like 6 years until I deleted my chars recently so it was absolutely different from what I was used to (gear requiremenents ILVL and the other crap GONE)

    Skyrim is not for all playstiles tho like Digglett said.

    Yea Im thinking I will do that cuz I really had no plans to "go west" yet as Im not done with "the east" .

    However, I was curious about what would happen to one horse when you got the other and reading on the Wikki it was saying that you do keep both - but only the one you last rode is the "active" one. They said once you got Frost/Shadowmere first - and got the other second, that your first horse would return to the last place you fast traveled to when it was your sole mount. It would then stay in that location - since you are currently riding your "2nd mount" it has become your "main" I guess. Then, if you wanted to switch to the 1st mount as your "main" again you went to where it was waiting, and mount it. Then your 2nd mount would stay at that location (I believe, possibly it would warp back to the location you last fast traveled with it to) and the one you just mounted would now be the "main" that traveled with you.

    Or for perhaps a less confusing direct example: I ride Frost. I fast travel to whiterun and then Maraketh. Pick up Shadowmere and am now riding Shadowmere. Frost returns to either the stables outside Maraketh or Whiterun (not sure which exactly) and waits for me there. I raid Shaowmere around for 10 levels and he fast travels w ith me everywhere etc.etc. I decide to switch to Frost. I go to Whiterun where Frost sits, and mount Frost. Shadowmere now waits eternally at the stables outside Whiterun as I travel around with Frost for another 10 levels.

    Thats how I understood what I was reading on the wikki anyway. Having not gotten the 2nd horse yet Ive not tested it but perhaps you can check the stables of the towns and Frost might be waiting for you somewhere. At least, he SHOULD be anyway LOL.

    But both wikkis I checked said you dont lose either "essential" mount.

    So I've pretty much completed everything I could in Skyrim, playtime just until 150 hours.

    Is anyone else playing the collecting game? In my house in Solitude I store all my shiny gems, gold bars, and dragon parts in the safe. Store all food next to the cooking pot. Store all smithing materials next to the downstairs weapon rack. Store all alchemy mats in a barrel downstairs and all enchanting mats next to it. Also collecting every book and putting them on my bookshelves.

    Of course I never use any of it, I tried laying the stuff out to decorate my house but it is very hard to move things with the mechanics and after you leave your house and come back all your stuff seems to be displaced.

    I'm doing that. Doing it mainly with books I liked such as one about some guy studying live werewolves and ones about the Daedric gods. Also collecting rare weapons and making a rainbow with enchanted weapons on some of my weapon racks lol.

    It's right up my alley though, it makes me sad. Everything is so lovely and I love being able to play a female orc again, I think I get over whelmed by everything lol

    Yea, I'm doing that but I'm using them too. For example make rings and necklaces out of the gems or improve armor or weapons with bars. But I'm also collecting other stuff like bugs in jars, dwemer dishes and cups and just placing them on shelves and tables or other locations in my house.

    As with the displacing, yea they do that but for some reason only once :O Every time I'm finished putting them in place, next time I enter the house, the new stuff is on the floor. Then I put them in place again and they stay there. OH and moving items around is actually very easy, once you get the hang of it. It feels kinda clunky at first but after a little trial and error you can get stuff into place in seconds.

    I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
    Should ever be forgot...

    I've heard from alot of friends they, indeed, got a bit overwhelmed by Skyrim. Not long ago, I watched Extra Credits review of the Skyrim 'start' of the game, saying it was too narrowminded and did'nt make you feel the open world enough from the start, but if you ask me, that's exactly the reason.

    I mean, when you consider your first fourty-some minutes of the game, which takes place in Helgen, it's very story-driven and you have an extremely limited freedom as the game explains controls and mechanics. Now, Imagine never having played an Elder Scrolls, or perhaps a Sandbox game before, and then not having that Helgen guide to help you through the start. THAT would be overwhelming...

    That aside, though, I've found myself a bit spiritually encumbered in Skyrim a few times (Like.. Urgh, what's it called again, that huuuuge underground cave with the nirnroots.. ) but in my oppinion, it simply adds to the fun of the gameplay to get 'lost' occasionally.

    If youre on PC I think there's a mod that changes the spiders into other things.

    (I like the Irony of your Signature then mixed with your comment ;D)

    I don't know if there is such a mod. I'd suggest you try checking the modding community for Skyrim but I'm pretty sure it should'nt be too hard a thing to change anyhow. That said, I hate those freakish things aswell and I've had more than a large amount of shivers from them while playing. On the other note, though, their poison can be really effective if you're not into mixing poisons yourself, so they do serve a purpose in their way. That's how I get myself through dungeons loaded with those eight legged freaks anyhow xD

    If we are already talking about spiders Has anyone of you played Gears of War 3? You know there is this fucking huge "mother" spider you have to fight in a cave. You know I have a bad arachnophobia and this was the worst moment in my gaming career. I needed to shut down my xbox or otherwise I would´ve gone insane

    That picture makes me cringe even if it looks somewhat mechanical! My problem with Spiders in Skyrim, however, is not so much (But some!) their size, more the combination of realism and my-fangs-will-cut-your-heart-out-as-I-lay-my-eggs-in-your-tummy-and-watch-you-give-birth-to-my-children-while-I-laugh-at-you-and-spit-poison-down-your-throat-and-embumber... *Deep breath*...you-with-my-big-mighty-web-and-serve-you-to-our-new-children-esque they have to them. They honestly scare me. Alot.

    Haha, Urgh! I would SO hate to have that happen to me xD

    As I said, even the picture freaks me a bit, so just imagining it happening during intense gameplay.. No, no thank you! xD

    Fortunately, Spiders in WoW are far less realistic, and their bunnyhop attacks makes them much less of a scare (Which I've praised time and time again! xD) but I do know a girl who's dead scared of sharks. Like.. ANY sharks. Heck, if you say "Shark" she'll flitch. She deliberately avoided questlines in World of Warcraft involving sharks, careing not for a second that she'd miss out on an entire zone (Borean Tundra, Howling Fjord).

    But hey.. As said, those Skyrim Spiders atleast serve a poison-purpose, since I'm not all into mixing my own poisons, so I swallow hard and chew through them just to harvest their venom. Even if it can sometimes make me cringe. One of the worst is in those Markarth Ruins... EEEK!

  19. #4879
    Yeah the spiders in WoW are a joke Despite my spider hate I had absolutely no problems back in Wotlk with Naxx and the spider wing. I am glad that they are not realistic at all !!

    But Gears of War 3 in general is scary as shit I mean not only this HUGE spider there were other incredibly scary things creeping around. I regret buying that game ever since that incident GG

    Is Gears 3 really that scary? Gears 1 berserker fights scare me a LOT more, especially the first one. It's weird, I guess I just never thought of Corpsers as Spiders, they're Corpsers, totally different! The Mother Corpser was actually my second favorite fight in Gears 3.

    I think the only time that Gears 3 made me jump was when I was running from the Lambent Berserker. I was waiting on some cover for the Hammer of Dawn to pass by the gate so I could run in, and I literally just saw her charge some Gears. So I figured, okay, I should be fine for the 5 seconds or so this'll take, then I can just mantle and run in. A few seconds later, she charged RIGHT by me. Like, I don't know how I wasn't downed it was so close. Seeing the Lambent Berserker suddenly taking up most of my screen when I wasn't expecting it made me jump a little.

    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
