Jessa stars in “A Dance With Dragons- Skyrim Edition” (gif made by me!)
I’m loving Skyrim to bits. LOVING. But I don’t want to say much, because SPOIKERS!! So, I’ll mainly just post screenshots. Like this one.
My character married Farkas of The Companions. He wanted to see a Dragon, so here we are. If anyone has played Dragon Age II, this was Jessa’s Aveline Moment. If you haven’t…here is the reference. (starts at about :58)
Anyhow, my point…
LOOK at the intelligent expression on that dragon’s face! It doesn’t just snarl and fight, it looks at you, it measures you up. It TAUNTS you. It’s those kinds of detail that keep me interested in any game for long periods of time.
What I meant was I wasn’t interested in Skyrim then. But release day, apparently I was. Once again, making a liar out of myself. What else is new? And since I’m back to WoW, but waiting until my Thanksgiving Break from school to fully indulge myself, why not play with dragons, and broody warriors? So, meet Jessa.
She’s an Imperial, with skills in Archery, Destruction and some restoration. (Jess with healing? noooo, can’t be!)
She’s earned a title, has two horses, a house in Whiterun, and a soft spot for a certain broody, scruffy, nord…named Farkas.
The game itself is…different. I’m very spoiled by Bioware story, companions, romance, and graphic style. So it has taken me a bit of time to allow myself to enjoy anything new. Also, I’m used to smaller worlds, or at least easier to travel ones. Running/Riding ALL over the map is a new experience. You can fast travel only when you’ve discovered the places. So it’s getting easier now, but on the upside, you feel more like you’re exploring the world rather than exploring a map.
Things I don’t like? Random Dragons! and EFFING GIANTS! Especially when the EFFING GIANTS steal my Random!Dragon kill!
Things I do like…the scenery!
And too many other things to list honestly.
